It’s getting cold in here, so put on all your clothes. Cold in here, so cold, I wanna put my clothes on! There’s officially no denying it. Winter is coming. I doubt you’re going to see anymore outdoor looks where I’m not wearing a coat. Heck, you probably won’t even see any skin apart from the one in my face! See you next summer, bare legs! I wore this outfit the day of the election. I met up early with Beto in Union Square to shoot this. Just as we were about to get started this cute girl came up to us and asked to snap our picture for the Huffington Post newspaper election day street style section. We were more than happy to oblige. Later I worried people would think I voted for the Republican candidate. I went back home and changed into a different coat before heading to vote.

I got this fleece red coat from Old Navy during a one-day special and only paid $15! At $35 it’s still not too bad, you can find it here. The bell-bottom jeans are another story. I’ve had these pants since the summer but never had a chance to wear them. I had been looking for this cut for a while (but in a darker wash) and I found these in a clearance rack at Forever 21 in Times Square for $7! I said I was going to dye them a darker color, but I haven’t gotten around to it. I would have preferred to wear them with a thicker heel, but all the shoes I have like that are sandals and yeah, no more sandals for now. Now, this beige MICHAEL Michael Kors cardigan I’m wearing under the coat is really something. I got it from Macy’s and it’s now on sale (hate it when that happens!) you can find it here. The faux fur is attached (but removable) making this a perfect option to wear year-round. So far it’s gotten me tons of compliments and it looks good underneath most of my coats! I hope I get to show you at least one more look with it before the end of the year! Ahhh! Where did 2012 go?

    Love very 70s chic. Love the furry cardigan and I have always been in love with any coat that’s red. Have a great day! – Carla
