First off can you believe that Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK! I know I say this all the time but WHERE DID THE TIME GO?! So after I got home from my Austin trip, I was surprised with a trip to New York by my boyfriend! ( I gotta admit he is the BEST boyfriend any girl could ask for). I was completely shocked and surprised because I had told him about 3 weeks earlier that it would be cool to go to NY, since I've never been. Our 11 year anniversary is today, so it was an early anniversary gift from him. Once I found out the dates we were leaving I knew that I HAD to go shopping...for GREY pieces of course! I made sure that everything I packed was still within my Color Bar series. I knew that I if I didn't take advantage of the natural, eccentric, organic, and stylish buildings and areas around us that I would be known as the WORST fashion blogger ever lol.
We went to Banana Republic the week before we left and did a little shopping. Zach(my boyfriend) had his eye on this beautiful grey wool coat, and although I've never been a huge Banana Republic fan, found myself falling in love with this faux fur cape. I loved everything about this cape. The The size, the color, the fact that it is a cape and not a jacket and the fact that it comes with POCKETS! I knew immediately that I wanted to pair this look with distressed jeans. I've always loved the juxtaposition of feminine/glam with rugged/tough. I'm that girl that enjoys a floral midi dress with combat boots. That girl that will throw on a pleated midi skirt and heels with a Tupac graphic tee...I'm that kind of girl. So when I purchased this cape I just knew that distressed denim was the way to go.
This outfit was just perfect for Fall in NY. It was cold up there but nothing that was unbearable or uncomfortable. I actually prefer wearing chunky knit sweaters, boots, fur and trench coats as opposed to flip flops. Fall fashion to me just exudes style. Crazy how a true Spring flower child like me (April babbbbyy), could love a season like Fall so much! Anyways I hope you guys enjoy this look and as always I hope this gives you some inspiration for this season!
