We managed to get away from the hustle and bustle of fashion week and stroll through Central Park, which is where these photos were taken. The weather was a lot milder and the sun peeked through too. We were both relieved to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet.

I tire of wearing black several days in a row, so changing things up was in order. It was Valentine’s Day, and I couldn’t think of anything more fitting than wearing my jodhpur jeans. Greg loves them, and I love my sweetie. 

The rest of the outfit was also inspired by Greg. He really likes my Winter white and taupe turtleneck. The white leather jacket was his gift several birthdays ago so that went over as the next layer. Personally, I like the effect of mixing together several shades of white, but do understand that it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. 

I finished off the look with animal print belt and booties because the earth tones are softer than adding them in black. However, I did add a black bag because the off white bag I also brought along to NYC was just too much of the same. I chose my dark wide catseye specs because they create a nice contrast with the Winter white tops. I kept my hands warm with the same black leather gloves. 

No need for a puffer coat that day so it was back to wearing my bright red wool coat. There have been several questions on our forum about whether it’s okay to wear leather jackets under coats. Clearly I am a fan of layering in this way because it keeps me warm, AND because the outfit still has the structured integrity of a jacket when I remove the coat. That’s why you have to make sure that you can layer correctly when you purchase a coat.
