She looks fantastic! There is something slightly unexpected about an open-toe shoe with a warm jacket, and I love it.
This is a qualm I used to face in NY when I was going out at night to meet friends in the colder months. I was brainwashed by my midwest mom that I could never wear an open-toe in cold weather, but secretly I knew that it must be possible! It’s great to see it during the day in this case!
This outfit is attainable rather than aspirational (that said, I have no idea how much this particular coat costs). The general gist of it, however, is casual style and it’s very nice…even with “skinny jeans.”
I gather from the comments that this person is a fashion personality? Those shoes really anchor her in fashion victim territory. Good fashion often reflects the capacity to think out-of-the-box. But this looks more like a feeble attempt to say “look at me.” Pity, because as lovely as she is, she doesn’t need such gimmicks. haapi
My midwestern mom also believes in wearing holiday-inspired sweaters with “seasonally appropriate” embroidery. God love her. ;)
Some people don’t mind cold extremities. For instance, I often don’t wear gloves in the winter, leaving my fingers exposed. I really don’t see the difference. And before anyone says it, my coat doesn’t have pockets, so I don’t shove my exposed fingers into them to get warm.
If we’re going to give props to 20 year-olds who dress like grannys and 75 year-olds who dress like kids or like leopards, then can’t we give her a break on the shoe choice? ;)
I think she looks really good. Put together and matching in a cooler way than we are use to saying, it isn’t matchy it just matches. Which is actually a little refreshing considering how unpopular matching has become (I don’t personally like matching, for the record, but it works on her). About the shoe choice, I think its moot. While she must have been cold when outside, she obvioulsy wasn’t trekking far from her chauffered escalade into the tents. AND my theroy has always been that I never feel particularly warm despite bundling up, so if I feel better in something that isn’t *completely* seasonally appropriate, why not?
