Great minds think alike

     I have had this coat for two yeas already, but I haven't worn it very often because it is tricky to incorporate into an outfit, it is a little too dressy. But a couple of weeks ago I decided to try this coat in ways I would not usually wear it, I wanted to find more options for it. After several failed attempts, I stumbled upon a pair of jeans which I usually do not wear in the winter. I chose a cashmere turtleneck, my typical base for cold days, and suede boots, then put on the coat. I really liked what I saw in the mirror. I finally found a good alternative for how to wear this coat in everyday life.

      I couldn't wait to get a chance to go to Philadelphia and take photos of this look for my post, but between a big project at work, Eugene's work schedule and rainy, cold weather, it was not easy.

      One morning I was checking Instagram posts during breakfast and was stunned by the outfit one girl posted there. She was wearing the exact same outfit (of course, different brands, but the same idea), I have created not long ago, but didn't get chance to wear yet. It was my outfit waiting for its moment.

      This girl is a full time blogger Brooklyn Blonde and she is one of my favorite ones. I like her honesty about products she recommends and her life style. For a minute I felt like once I post my outfit, it will seem as if I copied her look, but in a moment I realized that we probably have something in common even though we have never met, because of our Russian roots. Is it possible?

      I decided to show my version today - more affordable and for women fifteen years older than her.
