Finally – the second part to my favorite two-part post ever.
The more I wear this coat, the more it becomes a part of my identity. I wish I was kidding, but it’s true. This coat has pretty much defined my A/W ’15 look – I literally throw it over whatever I’m wearing to go anywhere, whether it’s class, out to dinner, or anything in between.
Here I’ve clearly tried to dress it up a little, while also adhering to that super-cool grey on grey action that’s been coming up as inspiration a lot lately.
This look is perfect for those fall days where it’s a ~tiny~ bit warmer than usual and suddenly you feel like dressing up just that little bit more for your day. If you feel like it could be too dressy for class (honestly this would not be too dressy for class at McGill – people go crazy up here and I might attempt this as a school look tomorrow in fact), you could easily bring it down a notch by swapping the heeled booties for flat ones, or even converse and warm socks!

Having only started my job as a Free People stylist last week, I am already surprisingly familiar with the brand and what it stands for. Contrary to popular misconception, Free People in fact caters to a variety of different styles – with such a broad range and with not one but four style muses off of which they base their designs, one would be hard-pressed not to find a single thing they were drawn to in a store. Firmly believing in this newfound versatility of the brand, I thought I might show you guys a couple of different ways to style Free People pieces. The first look, as shown here, is the most typical portrayal of Free People. It’s bohemian, airy, colorful, and oozes the term “free spirit.”
The beauty of Free People is encompassed in the name – they give customers the freedom to dress however they want, and encourage original interpretation of their pieces. Look out for my next post featuring a different take on some FP pieces!
