Between Black and White

black and white

Dude it’s friggin’ cold outside… I have cute outfits I’d like to wear, indoors, and it’s so hard to get good pics indoors when you live in a tiny apartment. Unless you want to see my crazy apartment, um no?

Yesterday I met Monica to take outfit shots. Feeling insecure about my winter coats, and wanting to visit OAKNYC’s 50% off sale after brunch one day, I found this coat on the sale rack for a super affordable price. While the coat is huge, the reason why I got it, was because it was roomy enough to fit a blazer, chunky sweater, fur vest,  basically anything too big to fit under a regular coat. It’s been great, considering I recently got a wool blazer from Joie on Gilt was just too bulky to fit under a coat, well not this coat, it fits fine!

Here I’m also wearing a pair of jeans courtesy of Levi’s when I went in to test the new Curve ID line the started last year. It was indeed a lot of fun, and I was really surprised how well the jeans fit… it’s like heaven. And great for the blistery cold days we’ve been having lately.

Wearing: Coat: OakNYC • Blazer: Joie • Scarf: Burro • Tee shirt: Urban Outfitters • Shoes: Aldo • Bag: Zac Posen borrowed from my friend Katlin • Jeans: courtesy of Levi’s Curve ID

That is a great coat…oh, and bag…and boots! Great layering! Love the use of the different photo color/concepts!!

I really need to get a bulky/looser coat to fit blazer, etc. under. As soon as it gets cold I have to just stop wearing that stuff and I hate it, this was a good fix for the problem!

I TOTALLY feel you! Outside just shoots much better than a tiny apartment. And its so freakin cold in NYC that I feel like I wear the same few outfits everyday because of the coats I switch between that cover my cute outfits :( I’m already ready for sundress weather!

Are you nuts Jennine, part of the reason I like reading blogs is getting to snoop on people’s crazy apartments! So agree on having a big coat to layer over chunky jumpers, my smart belted tweed is lovely but no good for when I really need to bulk up. Glad to see the boots are still going strong :)

Oh my gosh, you look so pretty in these photos! I love your new coat, that’s a cutie for sure. And I’m glad you’re showing Levi’s jeans. I recently picked up a couple of pairs & it was such a relief to not have a bedazzled ass for once. SO sick of over embellished jeans. :P

I would rather see your wearable outfit outside any day over a pretty one that is confined to the indoors. The blazer is really cute.

gorgeous photos! i love that jacket and your boots…and i’m glad you found a coat that can fit so many layers, i hate when i try to wear layers under a jacket and they get all bunched up and then i look like a fat teddy bear. :P

Fitting a blazer or chunky knit sweater under a winter coat is definitely an issue as it is with a trench. I find it difficult to get a fashionable coat that is also roomy enough to house layers underneath but you seem to have done it. The search continues!

I love your photos & your outfit. Totally gorgeous! xx

That’s a great outfit, and here I thought it was only possible to look good in the summer when we can show some skin, but even in the winter you look great !


Alicia January 17, 2011 at 12:41 pm

I’ve been looking for the perfect oversized jacket as well. All of my coats / trenches are pretty formed fitting and unfortunately make layering difficult!

You are so beautiful! I love your style, very confident effortless chic :) I love the layered look! I know what you mean about shooting inside, it is impossible to get it right. I still go outside for my OOTDs, and as I live in Norway it gets really cold lol. What a girl won`t do for the love of blogging :) hugs xx Anika
