B&W

Coat: Zara. Skirt: H&M. Turtleneck: Club Monaco. Faux Fur Stole: H&M. Boots: Nine West. Rings: Stella & Dot, BCBG, H&M. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

Today I’m wearing 2 new pieces in my wardrobe that I’m madly in love with…this Zara coat and H&M skirt.  This white coat with faux leather sleeves has been hanging in my closet for a few weeks just begging to be worn.  It’s fairly lightweight however the turtleneck and fur scarf added enough layers to keep me warm.

 

H&M came out with this skirt in yellow last season, and I stalked my local H&M every week waiting for it to hit stores.  I don’t think we ever got the yellow version here in Toronto (although I could be wrong), but as soon as I saw the fabulous Nancy from Adore to Adorn wearing the new version in eggshell, I rushed to H&M that night after work to pick it up.  Thankfully, it was in stock.  I just love the texture and fullness of this skirt.

 

Those of you reading along on Instagram or Facebook may have already seen that I posted the exciting news that one of my outfits was featured in the “reader looks” section of the March issue of InStyle Magazine.  I sincerely thank you for all of the sweet compliments and congratulations.  It’s pretty fun to see my photo in print.  I must say that this would have never happend without the sweet encouragement of two amazing woman.  Several months back, the super sweet Whitley from The Queen City Style had her look featured in InStyle, and I thought it was just the coolest thing.  Then, after I wore the outfit that was featured, the always chic Sheree from It’s Not That Deep told me that I should submit my photo to InStyle, so I thought, “hey, why not?”.  One of Sheree’s gorgeous looks was also featured last month in InStyle!  Thank you ladies!

Date Night

Sweater: Zara (similar). Skirt: Zara. Boots: Aldo. Rings: Stella & Dot, H&M. Clutch: Balenciaga. Sunglasses: ZeroUV.

 

Happy Monday Everyone!  With Valentine’s Day coming up on Thursday, the lovely and sweet Cami (blogger over at Olivia Moone) and I thought we would share some date night outfits incorporating one of the season’s big trends, leather (although I believe leather is a seasonless wardrobe staple).  I wore this outfit out for dinner with my Man and some friends a few weeks ago, but was unable to photograph it, so I thought it would be great to showcase today.  This faux leather top is a go-to in my wardrobe and I’ve worn it at least twice a week since I purchased it.  Paired with these thigh high boots, I thought it made for a fun, flirty outfit.  Cami’s looks beautiful wearing her “fits-like-a-glove” leather pants, perfect for date night.  Head over to Olivia Moone to see more of Cami’s fabulous look!

 

P.S. I’m excited to share that I have a fun little giveaway coming up tomorrow.  If you love coffee table books and Kate Spade (hint, hint), check back tomorrow.

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
