Mango Sale

I often get asked what my favorite affordable retailers are. Mango always comes top of mind. In recent years, they’ve really stepped up their game – especially when it comes to fall/winter clothing. I find the quality to be much better than Zara, and I would choose Mango over Zara any day. Besides the quality, I just find that Mango pieces are a bit more classic. I actually hold onto them season after season whereas Zara pieces already feel “out” a few months after buying them. Mango Sale Anyways, that was a long winded way of introducing Mango haha. But honestly their pieces look REALLY expensive and I just couldn’t NOT dedicate an entire post to their sale – which is a MAJOR one. Take 30% off their entire site with code SHOP30 through October 4! FYI for sizing, I recommend going down 1 size in all coats since they run very big/oversized! Other things run pretty true to size. Coats Like I said, definitely size down in Mango coats since they run large! I have my eye on this camel coat, this classic black coat, this light taupe coat, and this easy car coat. Also love this plaid peacoat. Shoes These brown suede boots are beautiful and I really like these white ones too! The gold detail on these black pumps is to die for!!! Accessories I cannot believe how expensive this gold ring looks…it looks just like an Aurelie Bidermann gold ring I own. Their scarves are really great this year, the fringe and cashmere ones caught my eye. I have a similar faux croc black Mango purse – and the mini version is super cute for fall. Sweaters So many classic sweaters included in this sale – from cardigans to crewnecks and v-necks. This long draped cardigan is really elegant. Etc. Love this Zimmermann looking dress, this knit midi skirt, and this Chanel-esque tweed jacket. This brown leather jacket is a great color and I adore this sweater dress.

Houndstooth Coat

These photos are from last fall in NYC, but I never got around to sharing the full outfit details! This coat is beyond timeless – you can’t go wrong with houndstooth for fall. I mixed the houndstooth print with all black and brown pieces. I loveeee the combo of black + brown together – it’s often an overlooked combination! Houndstooth Coats For FallA subtle houndstooth print coat is chic and effortless for fall. This one from Abercrombie is classic and under $250. Mango also has a ton of great houndstooth print coats like this one, this one and this one. Not to mention, their coat selection in general is ON POINT this season – can we talk about this one?! Suede BootsI picked up these Sergio Rossi brown suede boots in Paris years ago, and they’ve been such a versatile staple piece in my fall wardrobe. This pair from J.Crew is almost identical. If you’re worried about taking care of the suede, this leather pair is really similar. Leather SkirtsThis skirt is an oldie but a goodie. I love having a few leather skirts on rotation in my closet. I have a short version, a pencil skirt, and a wrap pencil skirt version. This short faux leather skirt for under $50 is a steal! If skirts aren’t your favorite, then a cool vegan leather trouser is a great option.

Currently Coveting

This week’s currently coveting features a few old favorites and new ones. They are all staples in my wardrobe and classic pieces that you will have for years to come. I love that they can all be worn together or mixed in with existing pieces in your wardrobe. These L’Agence jeans run true to size, but if you’re in between, you could size down since they have a lot of stretch. They also come in black, white and a dark denim color. They would look great with this simple, neutral wrap sweater. This beige skirt is gorgeous and on major sale. It would look beautiful with a bodysuit, turtleneck, blouse, or v-neck sweater. Wear sandals or booties with it to complete the look. I can’t believe how luxe this coat is for the price! This is an absolute MUST in your fall wardrobe. If you don’t already own a plaid blazer, this is one classic. I love that it’s a longer cut – more flattering that way! For shoes, these booties are my favorite – I’ve raved about them before! They run TTS. And these slingbacks are a close Chanel dupe. Can you believe they’re under $75? Shop each piece below and enjoy your weekend!

Best Leather Jackets

A leather jacket is one of my wardrobe essentials. I rarely travel without one because it always acts as the perfect layering piece. I’ve owned a fair share of leather jackets over the years, and wanted to share which ones I still reach for and love. Best Leather JacketsBanana Republic Leather JacketI wore a Banana Republic leather moto jacket about 6 years ago when I was hosting an event for them at their Soho store, and it’s been my favorite ever since. It’s the softest, most buttery leather, and the cool moto belt detail instantly makes any outfit better. 9 out of 10 times this is the jacket I reach for. While they no longer make the same style with the moto belt, they make this one minus the belt. This AllSaints one and this AQUA one are nearly identical! Iro Leather JacketThis is another jacket I’ve had for 6+ years that still looks brand new. The leather is gorgeous…you definitely get what you pay for! I will say, that if you’re willing to splurge on it, you will not be disappointed. I have it in black, mustard yellow, and beige (this is a great dupe.) They’re all super versatile and cut in the most flattering way. Their jackets are more slim fit, but the leather does have some stretch. I typically wear a size small or 2, and in Iro I like their jackets in a size 36 or 38. Joie Leather JacketI’ve had this Joie jacket for almost a decade and it’s a classic. The leather and cut is a bit stiffer (but not stiff!) then my other 2 leather jackets, but it has a really pretty sheen to it. This is a great style for someone who is a bit more feminine. It looks perfect with a floral dress, or jeans and a T. Affordable Leather JacketsYou don’t really need more than 3 good leather jackets. I like having 2 black leather jackets to rotate, and 1-2 neutral leather jackets. The neutral leather jackets are ideal to wear in the fall and spring. I am really impressed with this under $100 BLANKNYC faux leather jacket. I’ve seen it in stores and tried it on – and it looks like it could be well over $500. I love the gold details – it really makes it look luxe. They typically restock sizes throughout the season, so be sure to keep checking back! This AllSaints leather jacket is a great Iro dupe for a fraction of the price. I love the buttery leather and subtle details. OBSESSED with it in this tan color which is currently 20% off! For Abercrombie, this leather jacket may seem a bit pricey, but I’m impressed with their leather quality. And this vegan leather trench from them is to die for!
