At one point during her travels, with the temperature in the 40s Fahrenheit for a good part of the day, Shahidi decided to add a gorgeous yellow jacket to her ensemble.

The stylish coat came complete with a white furry portion along the first half of each sleeve and a zipper up to the neckline that she used while out and about.

It appears ‘golden’ was Yashidi’s mantra for the day, considering her touches of yellow and gold in her fashion choices, as well as one of her Instagram posts where she dropped in a snippet of Jill Scott’s uplifting sing-along song Golden (2004).

‘How we are living in 2023,’ she shared in the caption of the video, along with a golden star emoji, that showed her flipping her hands through her shoulder-length bob cut.

‘I’m livin’ my life like it’s golden – Livin’ my life like it’s golden,’ the soul and R&B singer can be be heard belting out in the clip in her post.
