On this week’s episode of America’s Next Top Fashion Blogger, Nicole poses in the wind atop a parking garage.
I’ve been so excited to wear this skirt (previously worn here) without tights, and the weather in Austin has been phenomenal lately. Lots of bare legs around these parts (sorry folks in cold states)! As soon as I bought the purple heels for my Valentine’s outfit, I dreamed up this look. It’s one of my favorites that I’ve worn on the blog, I think.
I bought this coat back in 2012 and I think I’ve only worn it once (with a yellow sweater and boyfriend jeans). It’s so bright and such a tough shape for me to style because it has no collar and the sleeves are so short. It’s like a pretend coat! Turns out, the solution is to wear it as an early-spring coat, rather than a true winter coat. It’s perfect for brunches before it gets warm outside, and out to drinks after the sun goes down.
I’m hoping to plan a few more outfits with the coat soon. How would you style it?
Also, for good measure, a few model-icious outtakes.
