Oh wow I have so much to tell you with this outfit. For something so simple, I sure have a lot to say but it’s all I want to wear right now – comfortable but still chic and it makes me feel put together without trying too hard, which is what I’ve been going for lately.
First of all, this coat. It is my favorite but a couple years old. I’ve worn it a million times (in all of these posts) but did find a few similar options for you down below in the widget (this one is my personal fav – so good). By Malene Birger is probably my favorite splurge designer. I have a few dresses (this one is the best anytime I have a fancy-ish party and don’t know what to wear), a sweater, and this jacket. Everything I have bought from them I wear over and over again – it’s never ever a mistake. I hate wearing older pieces here as I know it can be annoying for you as readers, but I also want to be realistic. Over time I’ve realized I can’t afford to buy a new wardrobe every season – and even if I could, I wouldn’t want to – it’s wasteful and encourages you guys to make bad spending decisions. So I hope that you (and think you) can appreciate me wearing things over and over again and linking to similar items when that is the case! I love to shop but sometimes I feel like blogging (myself included) can encourage excessive spending and while I’m all for investing in a quality wardrobe I want to be realistic!
Okay so now I sounded all responsible but these jeans are everything. The best jeans ever. If you aren’t stick thin, it can be hard to find “mom” jeans or “cool girl” jeans that fit properly. These are winners. I’ve been recommending Re/Done to anyone and everyone who will listen. I have two pairs (I have these too) and find myself pretty much only alternating between those two pairs. Sizing is pretty true to size. I’m wearing my usual denim size and they’re a little baggy but they’re supposed to be.
And lastly, the jewels. These earrings are so fantastic. I get more compliments on them than pretty much anything else I own. BaubleBar gifts me a lot but I bought these with my own money the second I saw them. They look so much more expensive than they are. This necklace is pretty fab too – it takes the guess work out of layering which I am all for!

Things have been non-stop since I got home on Monday night! Last night I was up late working and getting my apartment ready… One of my favorite websites ever is coming to shoot my apartment today for a home tour feature and I could not be more excited about it. I’m still a little in shock that it’s happening. Hope you guys are having a great week.
