Shearling Chic

Temps have dropped again here in NYC, which makes it so much harder to A., get outta bed in the morning, and B., look like you actually care about what you wear. I've been relying on my trusty puffer coat (which I thrifted ages ago and is still holding up strong!) for the past week, but since the giant puffy marshmallow look gets old fast, I was excited to switch things up with this cozy faux shearling coat ($34) that recently came c/o Make Me Chic.

One thing that I especially love about this coat is the cropped cut--it helps make my legs look super long! And the oversized, boxy shape means it's plenty cozy and offers unlimited layering options. Definitely planning to get a few more wears out of this one before the winter wraps up.

I paired the coat with some skinny jeans, which are the same Mango Outlet pair I raved about in my last post, but in a black denim wash. (They fit like a dream, and were only $20, and are still available in several other washes here, here and here!) I also rocked a light purple sweater scored for around $9 during my shopping adventures in Bangkok, and my fave over-the-knee boots (around $40 from Amazon--this black color is awaiting a restock, but they're available in other colors here!). Adding in my $10 sunglasses and a gifted gray bag, the whole outfit came out to $113.
