Bits and Pieces: Overcoat

And we already know I have a thing for these super cozy Club Monaco turtlenecks, so it’s no surprise that I threw one on with this look. My trusty Zara overcoat has been going strong for a few years, and these Manolo Blahnik pumps get worn any season – they are that timeless. I wasn’t sure I would like a baggy-on-baggy look, but for me throwing on a fitted shirt helps to make the outfit not as shapeless. I love a good casual, downtown look, but I need it to still fit my figure and have a slight feminine edge.
