Frantic in Fur

Wearing: Urban Outfitters x Unif coat, Forever 21 turtleneck, DIY jeans, Adidas sneakers

For a busy day of post-christmas shopping I made sure my outfit was both casual and warm (New York City buildings do tend to block off a lot of the sun...). That being said, I decided to wear this sherpa-esque, furry moto coat from Urban over a simple white turtleneck. The modesty of the turtleneck definitely manages to balance out the bear-like characteristics of the coat.

Stealing from the Boys

Wearing: Zara sweater, Asos boots, Forever 21 pants

Plaid is one trend that doesn't seem to go away. I have vivid memories of wearing plaid 'bermuda shorts' from Limited Too as a 10 year old. Luckily for me I adore this trend and love evolving with its changes. These pants are a subtler take on plaid and still fall under the 'stealing from the boys trend' that has been prevalent since the dawn of time also. Menswear, for me at least, will never get old. I'll always find a way to incorporate a button down or tailored pants into any outfit.

The Scuba Effect

Wearing: New Balance sneakers, Forever 21 top, Urban Outfitters jeans, Topshop necklace

I fell upon this particular sweatshirt whilst roaming Forever 21's website and once I received it I was shocked by how stiff it was, hence the word "scuba" in the description of the shirt (I just realized this...). Nonetheless, I managed to work with its stiffness by pairing the top with a simple pair of black jeans. The boxiness of the top juxtaposed against the tight pants truly complement each other.

Wearing: H&M sweater, Topshop jeans, Forever 21 loafers

Every season I seem to mindlessly adopt my version of a uniform. In other words, every season there is always one pair of pants, one type of top and one pair of shoes that I happen to fall in love and feel the urge to wear day in and day out. This season my "uniform" consists of a cozy turtleneck sweater, mom jeans and these loafers. Not only is this ensemble easy to throw on, but it is also awfully comfortable.
