Camel: CH Carolina Herrera cropped coat & Chole bag

 Coat: CH Carolina Herrera
Bag: Chloe
fox fur scarf
No matter what your style, sporty or ladylike, there is a thing to spices up your cool-weather wardrobe – a camel colored coat! This cropped coat was made by CH, Carolina Herrera. The flattering cut gives it a poncho look when pairing with a skirt or dress, classic, elegant, yet not too dressed up. Camel is a very easy-going fall/winter color since it creates a great combo with black or brown. If you live in a warmer place, adding some bright colors like orange or white might not be a bad idea either.

And the choice for the accessory is my little mocha, super soft fox fur scarf. It has already become one of my perfect and affordable luxury accessories to put on for any coat and sweater. It instantly tarts up a boring outfit before you even know it. Another thing is, it won’t make an ageing look as formal fur coats or jackets do. The pictures were taken at Princeton on a crispy sunny day in late autumn, three weeks after Sandy attacked this area. The campus was in peace, and all of the fears, cold, and stress gradually subside. I could feel the routines we have established that get us through the day were coming back. The ugly truth about Sandy is, she showed us how transitory life really is, and how things could be easily out of our control.

Wish you a happy holiday season!
