Whiter Shade of Pale

img_9735Woke up to a view of snow this morning and had to post this!

While not much of what I’m wearing is new all of it is of the moment. Typically we in the NYC environs seem to garb ourselves in black from  head-to-toe as soon as autumn fades, but this winter seems to be all about mixing and matching “whiter shades of pale.”

This look started with my amazing Vince coat. Last year, I tried it on in their Meatpacking store but could not pull the trigger. Luckily a few weeks later, it was on sale. Yay!  Kind of broke my Winter 2016 budget but do think it was worth it.

The rest of my look is super easy to recreate: white or cream turtleneck, camo pants, jeweled beanie, coordinating gloves, and pretty snow boots.

Once inside, I swapped out my coat for a fuzzy furry vest and my boots for…Birkenstocks! Yes…ugly is the new cool. And oh so comfy

And yes, that’s a blizzard blasting my face!
