A Walk In The Park

A Walk In The Park



On a perfectly cool and crisp morning, Jason and I decided to head out for a walk in Central Park before the weekend crowd usually hits. Admittedly, this is about as naturey as I’ll get if there’s not an ocean around – but the fresh air and autumn leaves were absolutely gorgeous. Even I had to give in to the splendor of nature on that morning.


We walked hand-in-hand, sipped lattes from our go-to coffee shop (shout-out to REX) and shared stories from the week. Despite sounding cliché, it was really nice to take a break from the noise and crowd of the city and just chill. Oh, speaking of chill… Did I mention that it has gotten really cold really fast. But I’m not complaining, the chilly weather gave me an excuse to get a new coat! My new black Rag & Bone beauty is a long and tailored peacoat with military-inspired shoulder epaulettes. I call it my Severus Snape coat… because I feel a tad bit dark and villainous in it. I also love that it feels a bit more masculine than my other coats.


For this morning’s stroll, I paired my coat with a simple long-sleeved Theory dress. Since it’s a bit on the short side, I layered it under my favorite shawl-collared, olive silk vest. To add some drama and polish, I finished my look with my AllLegs boots, two gold necklaces, and my Chanel boy bag. I love the autumnal feel of this olive and black pairing, and how each piece can be mixed and matched so easily. I feel like there are infinite possibilities with all of these favorites! I’ve already thrown my coat over so many Fall outfits and instantly feel put-together. Stay tuned on how I wear it next!


Coat: Rag & Bone.  Vest: Club Monaco.  Dress: Theory.  Boots: Stuart Weitzman.  Bag: Chanel.  Sunglasses: Chanel.  Necklace: Jennifer Zeuner.

      New York is so beautiful in the Fall, but I’m totally jealous you’re still enjoying sunshine and warmth! I’m heading to Florida next week so hopefully I soak it up. Thanks for reading Carlee!

    Hi! I’m thinking about buying that Rag and Bone coat – can you share what size you got and how it fits?

    • brownpaperdoll
      December 30, 2016 6:49 pm

      Hey Abby! Omg I’m so obsessed with that coat, and totally recommend it! I got a size 4 and it fits pretty true to size. I have worn a cable knit sweater under it (pretty chunky) and also wear thin long sleeves. It accommodates both! I also love that the sleeves aren’t too short which is often the case with overcoats. I say go for it girl!

      I did some research for you, as this coat is sold out almost everywhere! Here’s what I found:

      FWRD – Sizes 2 & 6

      Rag & Bone – Size 12

      Best of luck girl and thanks for following!
