My Loves

Coat: H&M. Top: Zara. Jeans: H&M. Necklace: BCBG. Boots: Aldo. Handbag: Chanel. Ring: BCBG. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I have worn this exact outfit, from head to toe, at least a 10 times in the last few weeks.  This is my go-to outfit every time I leave the house for anything other than work (I actually did wear this to work but swapped out the boots for heels).  It includes all of my current loves:

 

  • my new Chanel sunglasses with pretty purple lenses
  • my H&M blanket coat that strangers have actually stopped me to pet because they say it looks so soft
  • my Zara sweater with a faux leather front panel that is the perfect mix of dressy and casual
  • a statement necklace which always makes me feel extra girly
  • my beloved Chanel bag which I’m pretty sure I will pass down in my will one day
  • my Aldo cowboy boots I bought last year for a trip to Nashville which make me feel cooler than I really am

    I die over your bag. Chanel is such great quality, you SHOULD pass it down in your will!
    I actually really love your top. I may have to DIY something like this soon. It’s glam AND casual.

    Nice outfit J, that top is a keeper, hope to see it in Cape Town store soon. The texture of the blanket jacket combines so well with denim and leather.

    ahhh..I actually tried this shirt on! I thought it looked cheap on but it doesn’t on you at all..may have to re-think it and I love that you are rockin’ an edgier vibe! the boots are perfect too!

    • Posted November 8, 2012 at 9:18 am by Jenny | Permalink

      Thanks Sheree! There are actually 2 versions of this top that look VERY similar. The other one also comes in green and I think it looks cheaper. It has a slightly thicker knit and the faux leather doesn’t look as nice. Mine is the one with the asymmetrical bottom, but the other one has an even cut along the bottom. Not sure which one you tried on though.
