I received so many questions about my strawberry coat on Instagram so I decided to feature it on the blog too. I’ve got the coat last fall, but never really wore it until this season. To be honest, I couldn’t figure out at first what to style it with as it’s definitely a statement piece. I guess spring finally hit me because I started styling this already colorful coat in combination with even brighter pieces like my new J.Crew flats and Sophie Hulme stripe bag. What can I say, I feel that sometimes too much color is actually a good thing!
By the way, we took these photos with my friend Christina while visiting The Oculus shopping mall on Wall Street. There are not that many typical shopping centers here in the City so it was a fun experience to get on a shipping spree at this gigantic mall. There are all sorts of fun boutiques and restaurants located out there that are worth checking out! If you are planning on visiting New York sometime soon I definitely recommend stopping at Eataly for a cup of coffee and a snack.
Perhaps, my favorite store in the entire mall is the one by Kate Spade. Continuing a topic of colorful clothes, there are so many bright pieces in Kate Spade’s new collection! I mean, have you seen this pink bow bag and those adorable peacock inspired jewelry pieces? I’m totally dying about those! I don’t think I would be able to pull those off with my already standout strawberry coat, but hey who knows which crazy color combination will inspire me next?
