Did you survive Storm Jonas? I always love walking in New York's Central Park after a snowstorm through the fluffy snow and seeing the glistening trees on a sunny day with blue skies. Today was that kind of day, a beautiful aftermath of the storm. Of course this couldn't be done without the right outerwear, and if you're anything like me you want to be properly outfitted without sacrificing style.
I paired my traditional plaid print Burberry rain boots (lined with Hunter fleece boot socks) and matching Burberry scarf with my army green Zara military long pea coat in a trench coat style. I love the way the army green pairs with the beige tone of the scarf and boots to add to the military color palette. Also the look and feel of a traditional Burberry plaid is very iconically British as is a military style coat: a likely pair. I styled it further with my Urban Outfitters black beanie, Ray Ban sunglasses, and beige Celine Nano crossbody bag. Burberry plaid is a very obvious print so keeping the rest of the outfit neutral and solid colors is key with a more traditional look (especially when I want the print to pop).
I really love the details on the back of this coat! The buttons on the back of the waist sash as well as the four buttons on each coat sleeve really make this coat unique and traditional in an old military trench coat look. It's warm and so much fun to wear, and dresses up any outfit.
In the two above photos I wanted to showcase the Celine Nano crossbody bag's details. I just love the architecture of this bag. Modern, sophisticated, versatile, yet unique which is why I suppose it's become such an iconic bag. The large Celine Nano luggage tote is beautiful too, but I like the side strap versatility of the smaller crossbody version.
Today's blue skies made me want to look up and appreciate this cold yet beautiful winter day!
