Equipment blouse, jacket c/o NaomiandLavender, Rag & Bone jeans, and Aldo Mandina boots
I dipped my toes into the mixed media trend pool with a faux fur/wool coat from Zara last year, and as you can see from this jacket, I'm still drawn to the idea of mixed materials for outerwear. Utilitarian military-inspired jackets are staples for me during the fall. With their multitude of pockets and easy fit, they are ideal for my daily 2-mile walks, and they work equally as well as casual daytime toppers for running around town. The faux leather sleeves give the jacket an urban edge which beg to be juxtaposed against a floral top and styled with my go-to choice of footwear - ankle boots. There's something to be said for an injection of bright red on a rainy day!
