Ah, yes – Friday! Looking forward to a weekend of relaxing + catching up with friends before I head off to New York next week for fashion week. Also can’t wait to celebrate my friend Megan’s birthday on Saturday! It’ll be nice to see everyone before I leave, especially since I’ve been holed up at my house the last couple weeks with a rude cold. I still don’t know whether it was a sinus infection, the flu or just a really bad head cold, but it clung to me for two whole weeks! I hate to say that I gave whatever illness it was to my buddy Mara when I was visiting her in LA (sorry friend)! Anyway, I’ve just been feeling a bit blah recently. It made me not wanna get out of bed, let alone work out or look presentable!
To make myself feel better, I decided to do a bit of online shopping (naturally) in preparation for fashion week. As I mentioned in this week’s EDIT, I picked up a few new coats from ASOS! This red one is one of my faves. It’s just the cheerful shade I needed to brighten up my day when I wasn’t feeling so hot last week. ASOS has the BEST selection of coats on the cheap. A few more I’m tempted to pick up: this pale blue trapeze coat, this beige duster and this check-print coat. Also, since we’re already looking through ASOS, there are a few other items on my wish list for spring! I’m craving this sleek nude sheath, this linen pencil skirt and this cool metal-hinge clutch. Oh, and don’t miss these pearl-embellished sandals!
Coat: ASOS, Sweater: Old Navy (old – similar here), Jeans: J BRAND, Bag: Salvatore Ferragamo, Boots: Rag & Bone, Sunglasses: Celine
love the bright red coat. Enjoy your weekend, I’m headed to New Orleans
This red coat is divine and looks amazing on you.
ooh, can’t wait to see your fashion week pics:) Love this classic look and that bag!
online shopping is the best therapy…it sure is my method of choice. Glad you are feeling better.
Happy Weekend, Merritt!
At first glance I thought your jeans were a pale pink, but I love that they’re white! And that coat looks so cozy.
Looove you in red! Feel better soon!

Love the coat!! I was just thinking this morning that I am going to be sad when winter is over. I love getting to layer things on because it gives more variety/interest to an outfit. To me, summer looks are more basic just because you can’t wear as much!

And nothing like a great pop of red to uplift you! Love the coat!
love the red against the clean white skinnies.
I need a red coat in my life! You and Kat have convinced me!
Yay for Friday! And I’m loving this look – the jacket and booties are amazing!
I’ve said it before and I’l say it again, red is YOUR color, looks amazing on you.
I’m so sorry that you haven’t been feeling amazing. You have been looking superb and no one would know anything else!
Oh no, hope you feel better soon – just in time for Fashion Week! :)
Love this shade on you! You’re totally tempting me with one last ASOS spree before heading off next week to NYC. Their coat selection is too good (as if I need another…)
This coat is amazing, you have a great collection!
Gorgeous look! I love that red coat and those white jeans! The bag and shoes are a great addition! Fab. Have a lovely weekend.
