Outfit Idea // Minimal Two Piece

Fashion week madness is upon us, and while I'm not running around the city form show to show.  It's fun to get in on the hoopla and head out to some events.  Plus it's finally starting to cool, so I can layer up and show off a few new pieces, including these snake boots.  I have been coveting a pair for a few years now and these Free People babies are a great height and the perfect pair for stomping around town in comfort, while still looking fashionable.  Scroll down to see me do my best Carrie Bradshaw impression.

Fashion Week Street Style

One of my all-time favorite pasttimes of my time in fashion culture is combing through the spectacle that is New York City Fashion Week street style and this season did not disappoint.  While I wasn't particularly inspired overall, I was happy to see a shift from the minimalist cool-girl fashion that has reigned for the past few years.  Shift is probably not the right word, because fashion has taken a hard left from minimalism to complete maximalism!  The satement coat was out in full force.  And we're not just talking fur or a bright color, we are talking mixing and patching, color-blocking, colored fur, and it just gets kookier from there. 

The fashion glitteratti didn't have it easy this season, the temps fluctuated from -15 all the way to 55 degrees!  The fashionistas had to pack and prepare for everything!  Heels had to battle snow, rain, slush and wind.  Layers, big scarves, and little little neckties and statement coats were the big trend winners on the concrete runways.

New Classic // The Shearling Coat

After last winter, I vowed to find the perfect cozy warm coat that I will want to wear every year on those really frigid days.  Something that's classic, super warm and fashionable.  Nothing at this moment in fashion history fits that bill more than the shearling coat.
