Grey Coat, Black Booties, Check and Check

Monday, November 26, 2012 150 0

Coat: Zara. Booties: Nine West. Top: H&M. Jeans: H&M. Gloves: Danier. Handbag: Chanel. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I have finally checked two items off of my long shopping wish list that I’ve been on the hunt for for many years…a chic grey winter coat and a versatile pair of black leather booties. Β Other items that have been on my wish list for several years but I have yet to find the perfect pieces are a sleek black leather jacket, a pair of flat riding boots, fun yellow pumps and a great leopard print daytime handbag. Β What’s been on your list for a while now but you have yet to find the perfect item?

    Great finds! I actually checked a lot of things off my long-term purchase list recently: neutral peacoat, leather jacket, gingham button up…You’ve probably seen all of them at least once already on my blog haha πŸ™‚

    Jenny, I am not kidding when I tell you that I ordered the EXACT booties a week ago hahahaha. I shipped them to Erics parents as they dont ship to Germany, so really exciting to try them when I am there in less than 3 weeks. Do they come to true size? I ordered an 8. AND hahahah that is just way too funny, I tried this jacket on at Zara like 3 weeks ago but they didnt have my size anymore. so we really are fashion twins πŸ˜€ hahaha. I love this look its classic but really fashionable and totally reflects our style. You look gorgeous as ALWAYS my dear :-*

      Ha ha ha, way too funny! The booties are really comfortable but run slightly large. I’m usually an 8, but find I’m a 7.5 in Nine West. I first purchased an 8 with the idea of putting an insole in them for extra warmth and comfort in the winter, but exchanged them for the 7.5. I think you will definitely be fine with your regular size, but you may decide to put an insole in them if they stretch for you. We definitely have similar styles! πŸ™‚

      Well I am in between of a 7.5 and an 8 but thought of putting insoles in it for the winter. so there is no problem in returning them huh in case they might be too big? That ‘s good. Thank you for your response πŸ™‚

    I really like how great a gray coat looks – the quilted sleeve underneath is awesome.
    I live in Miami and didnt want to spend a lot of money on a flat pair of riding boots (which I also hunted high and low for) so I got a pair by the brand Sofft and I really like them!

    I have been on the hunt for black booties too, but I want flat ones! I haven’t found the perfect pair yet, but I am determined! With my luck, I probably won’t find them until the cold weather is over!

    And I LOVE that jacket! At first I thought it was a short sleeve coat (which would be weird), but when I clicked on the link and saw that it’s contrasting sleeves…genius! I absolutely love it! You look super chic!

    Love this coat and the booties look great! It’s so nice being able to check those long sought after items isn’t it? I took and looking for an animal print handbag I like along with black suede pumps with just a little bit of covered platform. I could go on but I’d take up the whole page haha
