Grid & Bear It




Coat: Nordstrom; Sweater: Velvet (no longer available in black, but here is the cream version); Skirt: c/o Milk & Honey; Boots: c/o Milk & Honey (Or buy here); Sunglasses: Chanel, old; Gloves: Zara; Earrings: Gorjana; Tiered Necklace: Gorjana; Ring Necklace: Gorjana; Lips: MAC Ruby Woo

Well, things are moving a mile a minute here in NYC for fashion week…and with degrees in the 20’s and mounds of snow on the ground, staying warm (while trying to still look chic!) is the name of the game!

Sadly, the majority of my cold weather clothes are black, black, black….which I why I couldn’t resist pairing this red jacket with a graphic, grid printed skirt…the combination definitely stands out amongst a sea of black, dontcha think?!

Happy Friday & stay warm!

      Like it, and I like your hair cut, very cute.

  • Rebecca

    You look gorgeous as always! The skirts really flattering on you! Hopefully you don’t have another awful encounter with a grumpy, gross man like you did at last years fashion week! That man was gross! Oh and welcome to the east coast and all the glorious, freezing temps we have to offer πŸ™‚

  • Natalie Keinan

    The red is the perfect antidote to cold winter days and a sea of black – you look great!

  • Lindsay

    I admire a lot of the outfits you put together and wear. My one gripe with all of your clothing posts is that most of the time, your pieces are “OLD” and unavailable to purchase. I’d love to suggest that you start wearing more up-to-date pieces.

  • Tina miller

    Can you PlzzZ just come dress me Dailey lol… Love the new hair Court!!

  • Carol

    You made me LOOK! I love the skirt by Milk and Honey. So cute. The color combination is like bringing classic old school back with a twist.

  • LindsayMelrose

    Love the way you added the pop of red and tied in the MAC lipstick which totally complements the look. These gold pcs are classic yet daring. You always have such a vision for putting just the right pcs. together. Love the blog & of course the show πŸ˜‰

  • Ellen Faith

    Love the colour combination! I’m a brand new fan to your style and can tell you now that I am in love with your style! It’s gorgeous.

  • Yolanda Torres

    Love this look, the coat and the skirt complement one another. The accessories are unique in style!

    How much weight have you gained? Also – stop with the Botox! You were SO pretty and fresh faced on MED, now you look like a 45 yr old soccer mom. Your new hair does you no favors.

    • Rose

      A –

      You are so, so, so rude! Seriously. I cannot even handle people like you. Didn’t your mother ever teach you that if you don’t have anything nice to say, not to say anything at all??!! You have literally gone out of your way to be ugly. Ugh. Useless.

    These over-the-knee boots in this post literally are why I just purchased over-the-knee boots. Classy and cute fashion!
