Fashion Over Reason: Big White

Big White

Vintage fur coat, Madewell denim shirt, snow globe, winter wonderland, central park, new york

No matter how much of a pain in the derrière winter can prove to be, there is absolutely no denying that it makes one hell of a beautiful tableau. At the end of the day, us Eastcoasters are stuck with the cold weather for a solid chunk of the year, so there comes a point where you just have to lie in your bed. That is precisely why instead of curling up on my sofa, snuggled in my my favorite cozy knit throw with a hot chocolate in hand during this blizzard, Ian and I gathered our courage stuff and made our way to the streets park to capture the true beauty offered by New York City under a white blanket of snow. I've dubbed it The Snow Globe Syndrome (SGS) -- it's Central Park's specialty.

There is little that will keep you as warm as a fur coat would and thanks to my trusty Big White (don't worry, it's vintage), I was nice and toasty, in spite of what my red face might lead you to believe in these photos. I felt a little bit country western in my brocade pants and denim shirt, especially with the spirit of the boots. Throwing a ginormous fur coat over top of that just accentuated the fact that I may have been dressed for a day at the rodeo. Not a vibe I tend to go for, but still totally staying true to myself with the streamlined and unfussy nature of this outfit.
