The Camel Coat + a Snood

Staying warm and looking like you have not emerged directly from one’s rumpled bed can be a challenge. I wore a long sleeve tee, and chunky fair-isle sweater,  a camel coat in thick wool and cashmere, and a snood. It worked. I am warm!

My camel coat is rather shapeless but I love the bracelet sleeve and the contemporary cut. The fabric is divine, and thick! It is by Helios & Luna,  an older coat of maybe 3 years, but still perfect for today. In fact I am seeing this silhouette a lot, especially when I search polyvore for the more expensive coats. So I am glad I got in on sale years ago. I have a thing for camel.

Glad to see winter weather here in NYC, but I hate to feel it! So coat up, snood on!

Below I am braving a crowded street. You may see I am wearing white flats. I love these comfortable, tom-boy cool oxfords from Steve Madden. They are still available and now on sale! NO, I do not regret buying them earlier at full price, they are a true Manhattan walking shoe, and those, my friend, are rare.

I will do a shopping post for this look soon.  But I would like to mention that a lovely coat is on sale from LastCall.com, very similar to this one, but not as long. I hope you are well and warm!
