A Classic Winter Coat in the Mountains

TGIF!  I’m back home for the next few weeks and back to my regular blogging schedule wahoo!  These pictures are from my recent trip to Aspen.  I bought this beautiful herringbone coat right before my trip and sadly it sold out, but I linked to a ton of similar options (like this and this) below.  I love a classic cut coat and know I’ll have this one for years to come.  I’ve been super picky about what I’ve been buying lately and it feels really good.  I only want to buy pieces I can see myself wearing for 10+ years. I want pieces that are timeless, quality, and feel 100% “me.”  I have always steered clear of ultra trendy items, but have had an even stronger aversion to them as of late.  Maybe I’ve been inspired by Marie Kondo, or maybe it’s turning 30 that’s solidified this, but regardless it’s just nice to look around my closet and see beautiful staples that I can mix and match with anything at any time. Speaking of closet…Since returning from Aspen I did a little early spring cleaning and listed a bunch of pieces on Poshmark!  I’m also going to be doing another designer luxury bag and shoe sale via email – so be sure to subscribe to my newsletter to get access!  This Fendi bag I’m wearing here has been one of my favorites for the past 5-6 years.  It has held up in the snow, sleet, and rain and has a fabulous little cross body strap that makes it really versatile.  I’ve been eyeing the light grey color…and also this Fendi bag in the new “Peekaboo” style. These Rag & Bone booties have also been in my closet for years…7 to be exact!  They are definitely due for a shoe shine/professional cleaning, but man have they stood the test of time.  10000% worth the $ and the only black booties I wear.  They’re made of buttery soft leather so they don’t give you blisters and the chunky block heels allows you to walk in them for hours! What are some of your favorite classic staple pieces?  Have you been in a major spring cleaning kick too?!  Doesn’t it feel good?!  Enjoy your weekend :)

Fringe Cardigan in Aspen

Derek and I just got back from a 3 day getaway to Aspen.  It was his first time and my fourth and we are already planning a return trip before the season ends!  There’s something so special about Aspen.  The scenery is breathtaking, the town is full of amazing boutiques, the skiing is unbelievable, and the restaurant scene cannot be beat!  Check my Travel App for all of my fave spots. I wore this fun oversized cardigan from Figue around town.  Stephanie, the designer behind Figue, has the most incredible eye and her clothes are all travel inspired and unique.  When I saw this sweater I knew it would be PERFECT for Aspen.  If you’re looking for a lighter knit fringe cardigan – I’m loving this one, this one and this one.  This is a great short version of all 3 of those. I paired the chunky knit with my Stuart Weitzman booties from last season (still available here!)  They kept my toes super warm so I could walk around without completely freezing!  I love that they’re nice enough to wear out to dinner, but also comfy/casual enough to wear walking around town during the day.  Shop my entire look below!

Houndstooth Trousers in Soho

These photos make me miss NYC and fall so much!  We shot this look back in November when I was in the city for a project and I never got around to posting it until now!  I LOVE these Rebecca Taylor houndstooth pants for anytime of year.  They’re literally the perfect work pant.  They fit like a glove. FYI I did size up in these since Rebecca’s pants tend to run a bit small.  I can see myself wearing these pants with a cream blouse or tank and blazer in the spring, or even a t-shirt and leather jacket. I wore a simple black turtleneck underneath, with this floor length camel coat from my friend’s line Tempo.  I’d love to own one of these coats in every color!  They’re beautifully made with the most luxurious blend of wool and cashmere.  I finished this look with my go-t0 black leather pumps and faux snakeskin Mango bag, which sadly sold out, but I will link several similar options (like this one!) below. Shop my entire look below and get more fall/winter outfit inspo here!  PS be sure to follow my Fall/Winter Wishlist Pinterest board to see what coats, boots, sweaters, trousers and more I’m loving this season.  I update it every few days so you will always know what I’m eyeing before it sells out!

A Winter Wrap Coat

Happy Monday! I’m selling some of my favorite gently used designer bags + shoes today on my Instagram. So be sure to check out the selection before items sell out!  A few things have actually already sold! You guys are fast! :)  I’ve been suffering from major January-itis. Anyone else?  The good thing is, I’ve been staying home, hibernating and cleaning out my closet. The bad thing is, I just feel sort of blahhhhh from eating way too much dairy, gluten, and sugar over the holidays and am having a hard time getting back in the swing of things.  Thanks in advance for your understanding as I ease back into a normal blog posting schedule! It’s a miracle I got a blog post up today haha.No, but really can you relate?!  The brain fog and lack of motivation is REAL.  Luckily, I’ve been juicing every morning which really sets the tone for my day (oh man, I sound so LA lol…). And I just booked 2 trips! One to Paris (next week wahoo!) and one to Aspen in 2 weeks which has definitely got me feeling a bit more energized again.  I’m looking forward to visiting two of my favorite cities and checking out new spots in each of them to add to my Travel App. I’ll be sharing posts throughout this month and next on how to combat those winter blues that we all experience – with comforting recipes (hello soup season!), my new favorite makeup products. (We all know how something as simple as a pretty gloss or face mask can instantly turn a day around!). Also, cute cold weather outfit ideas – which can all be found here. Mackage CoatThis taupe winter wrap coat from Mackage sold out right after I posted it on Liketoknowit a few months ago, but luckily I found it restocked online here, here, and here (oh, and here in a shorter, less expensive version!)  It’s such a gorgeous piece to have for fall, winter or spring (although I must say it’s quite a lightweight material so you would definitely need a fur vest or chunky cashmere turtleneck under it for walking around all day in the winter.)  The taupe color is beautiful and the slim cut is super flattering!  I’m wearing a size small here – and found that it runs true to size.  FYI I’m about 5’6.5″ to be exact! I paired this coat with my favorite L’Agence jeans that you may be tired of seeing me wear, but they’re not going anywhere!!!!  I adore these jeans, the high waisted cut, the ultra soft denim, the chic ripped details… so much so that I have them in 2 other washes.  L’Agence is my favorite denim company if you can’t already tell – once you try their jeans you won’t go back trust me! Shop my entire look below!  Ps if you snagged one of my designer bags from my closet sale – share a photo with me.  I want to see how you styled it. :)  And if you’re ever interested in any of my clothing items, you can always find me on Poshmark.
