    Great coat, perfectly accessorized with attention to detail and a sense of humor. I like that her hairstyle is in keeping with the overall image, too.

    I like everything beside her sneakers,because they are standed out against a background of her grey balenciaga,coat and grey scarf, which are really like.

    Wow, that is just amazing. Definitely love the coat and and the bag just belongs next to it. And the sneakers <3

    The coat and bag are great! I hope she’s just returning from the gym because sweatpants don’t belong in public and can never be a fashion statement.

    love the color combo of teal, green, and gray, but pull those socks up and put on some boots!

    I agree with Julicious. As I tabbed down to see the entire pic, I loved it until I got to the sneaks. It would all work better for me if she wore darker shoes. I think the balance is off with the white.

    @Julicious
    The sneakers complement the outfit. They look a bit retro. They are also very clean, which means she tries to act like she doesn’t care what she wears (she just puts on whatever she finds on her way to the living room), but truly she calculates every little detail.

    i love the color palette and the balenciaga bag…but that’s about it. she definitely needs to get rid of those high-tops!

    I guess this pretty girl just came from the gym. I HOPE she just came from the gym. Or maybe she’s got a lot of walking to do today and her “real shoes” or boots are in her bag.

    From the knee up it’s fine – that pricey bag with grandpa’s coat work okay (although I’m not a big fan of keeping the long, removable shoulder strap on when you’re using the hand straps. It just hangs there flaccidly looking like it needs a job).

    Sometimes you’ve got to sacrifice style for practicality but I really can’t figure out why she would wear those shoes and socks when there are plenty of great sneakers out there.

    This is how I look going to and from Pilates every morning, too.

    First impression – “gosh! Hate the shoes! ” but actualy now i see it’s not sneakers that doesn’t match. I can only guess she has some member card in her bag and is about to just hit the gym!

    I love the palette of the photograph, the strong green background and the green in the coat – am not loving the shoes but each to their own

    Does not look intended. The jacket saves (covers?) the gym outfit.
    Love the balenciaga bag, though.

    Surprisingly, I do not mind the shoes. I think I actually (gasp!) like them? Possibly. What really bothers me is the dark grey socks. They are just oh so wrong. The look minus the socks is interesting and pretty fab. Love, love, love the bag!

    Delicious coat. Wish I could say the same about the leggings and big white sneakers, but I can’t.

    The coat is fabulous! the leggings and sneakers ruin it for me but maybe i’m getting old and stuffy? Passionate about that coat though. i have a real thing for men’s tailoring from the 20s and 30s at the moment.

    Gorgeous palette, including the pleasing background. However, there is nothing special about the shoes & leggings with that wonderful coat. I agree with Anonymous; it's nice from the knees up.
    The photo itself is lovely. As always.

    She truly makes it work! Love the layering (and not just the clothes, but the colours, in keeping with the palette), and that B bag! Gorgeous!

    Great coat and bag, but I hate the sneakers and leggings and scarf.. I can’t tell wether she’s going to the gym or somewhere else..

    i lovee this because it seems so…her.
    I think that’s what style is- to know who you are and be able to express it through your clothes,your jewelry whatever.

    FABULOUS!!

    Amazing colors (I’ve never wanted this balenciaga bag so bad). I’m left uninspired by the silhouette… those shoes are heinous…sorry…it’s simply criminal.

    Parisians or French people do wear sneakers or jeans but usually they don’t walk around with those for sport. Actually, I don’t like those sneakers (to white for me) but it puts a little humour in the outfit.

    Absolutely adore that coat. It’s awesome and looks comfortable.

    Wow, what a great outfit! “Sportshoes” combined with socks, tights and a baggy coat, perfect!

    Totally agree with Monique. I don’t see much of a sense of style, but happy chance that the color palate falls in line.

    Not digging the shoes, makes her whole ensemble very bag-lady like, and I’m not talking about the kind a-la-olsens

    She looks so New York, just like the women live on 5ave and put on sth when she walks her dogs.
