Shades of Grey | Ombré Plaid Coat + Suede OTK Boots

Bon dia from Barcelona! Apologies for the light postings on here, but if you follow me on my personal and blog instagram, you will know that I’ve been traveling for the past week with my friend, KL. Our itinerary for each city has been packed with sightseeing and foodie places and so far we’ve done Rome, Florence, Cinque Terre and Pisa. Barcelona is the last destination before we head back to Paris and then do little visits around the area like Normandy and London.

Anyway, I wanted to post this outfit from my last shoot with my sister before I left on my European trip. I hear that the East Coast has been hit with a snowstorm recently so this outfit will tie in nicely. You would think it’s crazy to wear a dress during the winter, but you’d be surprised how a form-fitting turtleneck sweater dress paired with OTK boots and nude tights will keep you fairly warm.

I absolutely love this ombré plaid coat and it fits just right. I’ve been wearing this coat throughout my trip and just love that it’s lightweight but yet still keeps the cold out. Looks so chic yet not expensive at all. You’ll be seeing another post with this coat–I just love the versatility of it!

Also for the winter, I’ve been looking for a pair of suede grey boots and these boots seem to fit the bill without being too expensive as well. I bought them over the holidays so was able to get a good price from it. I also just read that Vince Camuto passed away at the age of 78–wow. I’ve sadden by the news especially since I just started wearing his brand of shoes and they have so far been proven comfy and have a great selection of styles. May he rest in peace.

Also while traveling, I had no idea that I was featured on both The Gloss and The Every Girl for being the top 8 and 10 fashion bloggers on instagram respectively to follow. What an honor and the best way to wake up to while you’re traveling around Europe.

Anyway, we’re about to head out and explore Barcelona so next post will be back in Paris. Hope you are all keeping warm over there and thanks always for reading!
