ABERCROMBIE & FITCH WOOL COAT
oh, i know. abercrombie & fitch? is she joking? the last time i stepped into an abercrombie & fitch store i was a senior in high school. i saw a handful of bloggers wearing this coat on instagram and i had to have it. i was pretty shocked and surprised when i found out where it was from! it's perfectly oversized and so warm.
MADEWELL LEATHER JACKET
this jacket has been at the top of my wish list for years. in my eyes, it's the most perfect leather jacket. i–rather impulsively–snatched it up during a shopbop sale last fall. i layered it over sweaters and blouses this fall, and i can't wait to pair it with dresses during the spring.
GAP SKINNY JEANS
these are my favorite pair of blue skinny jeans right now. the wash is just right and they taper around the ankles perfectly. i'm considering buying a backup pair for when these wear out.
i'd say that i'm a big fan of boyfriend/mom-style jeans. they're comfortable, casual, and can be easily offset with a feminine blouse. i recently picked up the levi's wedgie icon jeans and have been wearing them non-stop. a sizing tip: go up one size. there is absolutely no stretch in this particular pair!
MADEWELL CHAMBRAY STRIPED TOP
this top was in heavy rotation throughout the end of summer and early fall. now i like to layer it with a long oversized cardigan.
i absolutely live for beautiful lace-detailed tops! i don't like to wear a lot of color, but i love the muted lilac shade of this top. this actually might be the only colorful thing i bought this year. at least it's a good one!
J.CREW FACTORY STRIPED TEE
i won't dwell on this tee for too long since i've shared it on here a few times before. but really, it's the best striped tee.
i'd say that 2016 was the year of the long oversized cardigan for me. this one is so soft and cozy (i'd recommend going down a size, it runs large in my opinion!). i recently picked up a gray long cardigan from old navy, but unfortunately i wasn't able to find it online.
MADEWELL PULLOVER SWEATER
a cream-colored sweater is one of my wardrobe staples, so of course i had to add another one to my already growing collection. i've been wearing this weekly!
ABERCROMBIE & FITCH MOCK NECK SWEATER
yes, another abercrombie & fitch gem! this one is so soft and i love the mock neck style. sometimes i feel as if turtlenecks just completely swallow me up, even though they are so warm. this one is just right!
LOEFFLER RANDALL SUEDE FLATS
i've been looking for a perfect pair of black suede flats and i think i found them. i'll admit that they haven't been the easiest to break in, but i love them nonetheless!
FRYE COMBAT BOOTS
although i love my hunters and bean boots, i'm all about wearing combat boots during lousy winter weather. i found this pair from frye that has a shearling lining and they are everything. i swear, no other boots keep my feet as warm as these. plus! they have rubber soles that give you plenty of traction over icy sidewalks.
LOEFFLER RANDALL SANDALS
these were another longtime wish list item that i pulled the trigger on during a sale this summer. they are so much fun! they automatically put me in a good mood whenever i wear them.
