I sometimes envy the simplicity of an all black and white wardrobe, how streamlined and clean it looks. The combination almost guarantees a chic outcome. But, I cannot live without my colors- pastels, brights and all the above. I still do appreciate those black and white pieces as they’re staples in many of my looks. Sometimes, on days like this, I’ll remove all color and welcome those two refined neutrals.
This black Max Mara coat was an investment piece I bought Spring of last year. I remember the sales associate at the Max Mara store (here in SF) telling me that it was a “forever coat”. And it absolutely is. I will still be wearing it 20, 30, even 40+ years from now. You can see a few of my past favorite looks I’ve styled with it on the blog here, here, here, here, here and here .
I love the masculine touch of an oxford shoe, especially since my wardrobe is filled with so many feminine pieces. This kate spade new york pair has a unique twist with its two-toned patent leather and heel. They just got their new collection in, which as usual, does not disappoint. My wish-list keeps growing (and includes this dress and this coat).
