Faux Fur Feels

Sometimes your outerwear needs a bit of jazzing up and the universe was hearing that when I scored this faux fur jacket from Zara for $50. I’ve been on the hunt for one for a few years, but I couldn’t bring myself to spend (in my standards) an extravagant amount and I didn’t want one that looked obviously inexpensive. I turned to thrift and second hand stores for a while, but they have a way of never having anything in my size (is every woman in NY between a size 0 and 6??), so I waited it out and I’m so glad that I did! I feel kind of ridiculous and fabulous at the same time with each wear and sometimes that’s just the way fashion goes.

Since this particular jacket sold out pretty quickly, I’ve rounded up my favorite alternatives:

Numph Gitte Faux Fur Jacket
Vero Moda Tall Faux Fur Jacket
Selected Selvia Faux Fur Jacket

Moral of the story: good things come to those who wait, but once you find the one, jump on it!

All Black Everything

I am a huge color fan, but I often get into moods where black is my favorite color. This was one of them. I wanted something cute, quick, and simple for fall date night with my beau so I threw on a turtleneck dress, booties, and a long gold necklace. Black basics are so versatile, so even though I kept it pretty minimalistic here there’s so much that you can do with these pieces.

Holiday Jumpsuit

Getting dressed should be simple because – let’s face it – life gets crazy. I find the two best ways to do this are (a) a highly curated closet and (b) one piece staples like dresses & jumpsuits.

The holiday season may be the craziest time of the year with work, traveling, events, and gifting. This tomato red jumpsuit from Zara is a perfect space saver when it comes to packing and completely food-baby friendly with its crossover silhouette. I don’t have to think much when I throw it on, plus it’s a stand-out jumpsuit that doubles as a maxi dress from the front. Even better – it’s super affordable, but looks high-end.

Did I mention I’m in love?

I coincidentally had an old clutch the same shade of red as the jumpsuit, which I thought paired well without looking too basic or over-the-top. Adding in a black jacket and black shoes (pictures coming soon) pulled it all together without taking away any of the jumpsuit’s shine.

Camel Crush: Update Your Fall Wardrobe

This fall I’ve been seriously crushing on camel tones. It’s dark enough for the colder seasons, but light enough to easily mix with black. Here are three stylish camel pieces (all under $50, yay!) to quickly and painlessly update your fall wardrobe:

  1. Fringe Poncho ($34.99)
  2. Suede Over the Knee Boots ($49)
  3. Deux Lux Varick Backpack ($39)
