On days so frozen that you literally can’t feel your feet, you deserve a pick me up. You do! Believe it. In some cases that may mean wearing something a little funky or unexpected. Enter this coat that was passed down to me, but I’ve had the hardest time trying to figure out when to wear it. You would think living and working in NYC I would be liberated and ready to don this pretty, but it’s only remained an occasional piece, until this afternoon.

For some reason when paired with some lighthearted pieces like this woven headband, and classic winter boots, it felt carefree and fresh to me. It also was warm, which was obviously top of mind.

Anyone else out there having a similar fur coat dilemma? I’d love to hear any pairings that have worked for you!

It’s hard to get out the door on a rainy, snowy (whatever that slushy mix was!) morning. One thing I have learned is that any piece with a touch of fur gives a look that taste of glamour that instantly finishes it off. I also adore this flowy blousy top that I found on a thrifting trip; the pair of the two pieces gives almost a 70’s vibe – which I don’t mind in the least. Totally picturing this look with a middle part pony tail and some hope earrings ….

Other ways to style fur:

  • Fitted top + harem or pj-inspired pants
  • Baseball cap + boyfriend jeans
  • Maxi skirt/dress + felt hat

How about you, is fur still a sure thing in your closet? Let me know in the comments, I could talk about this for hours …
