What’s not to love about a huge furry pink coat that looks like cotton candy? This statement coat is the perfect (fur-fect?) transitional piece to take you from winter to spring. Not practical, you say? I respectfully disagree, as it flawlessly fuses fashion and function. Faux-fur, check! Cocoon silhouette, check! Fits over multiple layers, check! Keeps you warm, check! Yummy Valentine’s Day-meets-spring-hue-but-still-winter-appropriate, check!

This is actually my second faux fur pink coat. My parents got the first one from Benetton for me to wear to a high school homecoming event in 1989. And I still wear it! It’s a deeper shade of pink, has a cocoon silhouette, a big circular collar, patch pockets and matching oversized fur-covered buttons.

Since I like to play with contrasts, and not treat special fashion items as if they’re too “precious,” my favorite way to wear both of these coats is with boyfriend jeans, a cashmere sweater and sneakers (Golden Goose and Saint Laurent are my go-tos), but – in honor of celebrating my second married V Day with my handsome husband — I decided to go for a casual “shades of gray” pre-date-night look for this post. Slim gray jeans, a v-neck cashmere sweater and suede single-sole stilettos. And pink cat-eye sunglasses, because…well, why not?!


Snuggle, swoon, shine…think pink, and think SPRING!
