Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style and city living. Hope you have a nice stay!

Remixed Red

One of my fave winter finds is this red Calvin Klein coat, scored at a Salvation Army Coat Sale a few years ago for just $18 (brand new with tags!!). I adore this coat, but the bright, bold red can be difficult to wear, since it can come off as a little too formal and Christmas-y for my tastes.

I realized last year the best way to balance out the coat's classic, buttoned-up vibe is to mix it with more casual basics--in this case, a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans ($7, Unique Thrift Store) and leather Chelsea boots ($67, Dorothy Perkins).

To finish off the look, I added a pair of black sunnies ($1.50, Forever21), a secondhand grid-print blanket scarf ($16, Ebay) and my black purse ($5, from a friend's closet clean-out sale). Head to toe, plus a pair of gifted leather gloves, the whole ensemble came out to under $115.
