Mornings in Brooklyn are my favorite. I love the peaceful feeling of walking through the tree-lined streets of Brooklyn Heights, admiring the quaint townhouses and taking in the fresh morning air. Joe Coffee is one of my go-to coffee spots for strong coffee and yummy pastries. This outfit is something I would wear on a typical weekend coffee run. I found this windowpane check coat from REISS on sale for way off it’s original price (from $725 to $220), and it’s one of my favorite purchases this season. I’m not usually a minimalist when it comes to coats, but there was something so effortlessly elegant about this coat. I think it’s the combination of the gorgeous cream color, wide check design, and oversized fit.
Another one of my favorite pieces this season are these grey cropped flare jeans from L’Agence. I didn’t have a pair of grey jeans nor flared jeans in my closet, so these really were a great addition to my closet. Since I’m on the shorter side at 5’3, it can be hard to style cropped flared jeans as they hit right at the ankle, which can make me look short. So my styling trick is to pair them with heeled ankle boots. The ones I chose have an especially high ankle portion, creating the illusion of longer ankles and legs. These jeans seriously fit me so well, Aimee Song from @songofstyle has the same pair!
To make this outfit more feminine and less minimalist, I chose a floral headband and gold heart earrings. The addition of these two accessories instantly add a girly vibe to this look. I also added a pop of color with my red colorblock handbag. You guys know I can’t have an outfit without color!
