East Coast, West Coast

Coat:  Forever 21 (old, similar here), Faux Fur Stole:  Aritzia (similar here under $20!), Top:  Beyond Vintage via Anthropologie (very old, similar here), Jeans:  Citizens of Humanity, Shoes:  Valentino, Bag:  Rebecca Minkoff, Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

For today's post, I teamed up with Anne Dofelmier ~ the fashionista behind the blog Daily Fashion Muse ~ to end the age old feud between the East and West Coasts {although I'm pretty sure that the feud only existed in the mid 90's rap scene}.  Anyhow, we paired up to show two different renditions of date night outfits.
Anne and I met at IFB and I'm so glad we did.  She came out to NY all the way from WA, and manages to blog on top of being be a stylist and a mother.  Love a woman who can juggle it all and still look so put together!   
The difference in climate alone had a huge impact on our outfit choices.  I love how Anne paired her romantic blouse and rosette skirt with a utility jacket.  Just the right amount of dressy and casual.
I'm counting down the days until I can don bare-legs and open-toed shoes!
Anne's outfit details:
Jacket: Asos (similar here), Top: Pleione (similar here in teal), Skirt: 2bRYCH (similar looks here and here), Shoes: BCBG old (similar look here), Clutch: TargetBracelets: My Stella & Dot Website (Rhea BanglesHarlow Bangle), Necklace: My Stella & Dot Website (Wesley Pendant), Sunglasses: old (similar here)
I decided to go with my cold weather favorite ~ coated denim ~ paired with a top that I haven't worn in quite some time.  This intricately beaded Beyond Vintage top was one of my savviest sale finds of all time.  It retailed for over $300 and I ended up finding it at Anthropologie for $50!!  It's so neutral that you can pair it with almost anything and it can dress up even the most distressed denim. 
Clearly, we both enjoy a sexy pair of studded pumps...
