A Little Edge




When SheInside sent me this coat with faux leather sleeves, I could hardly wait for the weather to get cold enough so I could wear it.  Thankfully, over the weekend, I finally got my chance.  Because the coat has a slight menswear feel to it, I decided to contrast it against a classically feminine piece (the pencil skirt) & throw in some added texture with a soft cozy knit - the result is just the right mix of feminine + edgy. {side note: this is the last shoot we did before I cut my hair.  If you follow me on Instagram (ppfgirl), you can see a sneak peek of my new 'do!}



What I'm wearing:
Ann Taylor sweater (here), c/o eShakti skirt (here), c/o SheInside coat (here), RoseGold booties (via eBay; similar save or splurge), Rafē New York clutch (via eBay; similar), c/o JewelIQ necklace (here), Target sunnies (similar)

The faux leather sleeves are a wonderful way to update a blazer. This is beautiful.

I love this coat! And I'm excited to see your hair... (I'm thinking of snipping a bit too). I think I would've liked this outfit better with the sweater tucked in. It always looks more "intentional" and feminine to do so. Anyway, I love your taste and appreciate you sharing your artistic flair with the world!

You go girl! I love this!

Star White said...

GREAT jacket! With just the faux leather sleeves, it isn't too overwhelming or too edgy, perfect for your adorable fem style!

I love this look. The sunglasses with the slightly masculine coat is a supercool look.

I also love that booties seem to be "in" right now, because I love wearing booties.

Very cute Mod look! I love the booties and the texture mixing. I love the details that make this outfit interesting but not overwhelming. I, too, would have liked to have seen an alternate look with a tucked in shirt. :)

Love that coat! The sleeves add just the right amount of edge. I'm so jealous that you're actually able to wear a coat. It's so hot here, ugh! Hope you had a good weekend! www.casualglamorous.com

I love your combo of feminine and edgy here! That jacket with the leather sleeves is TO DIE FOR and I love how you styled it with a chic, sleek and colorful pencil skirt. Feminine + Edgy is one of my favorite "fashion contrasts" to rock! :)
