When living in New York, the one thing you really, truly need is a great coat for spring. Something you can throw on over anything — even pajamas (and in all honesty, I've done this one or two times when I wanted a fast coffee or bagel).
That's why I love this mixed fabric coat. It's cute, sophisticated, and elevates whatever I wear it with. While my outfit underneath the coat isn't particularly exciting (my go-to, comfy heels, skinny jeans, and a silk T-shirt), the coat makes me feel like a million bucks, which, to me, is what fashion is all about — finding those special pieces that make you feel instantly put-together and good inside.
