Today I just wanted to share with you a few finds I've been coveting for the last couple of weeks. As these are all pretty basic items that I can get a lot of mileage out of during an East coast fall/winter, I can rationalize paying full price for some of them. Right?
First up, this fabulous wool-blend leopard print coat from & Other Stories. Haven't heard of them yet? That's because they just hit the states! Another brainchild of the geniuses at H&M, & Other Stories channels H&M's more sophisticated, approaching-investment-clothing-level shopper. You're not going to find any $9.95 sweaters here, but most items are under $100 high-quality, high-fashion shapes and fabrications.
Their shoes are also to-die-for. Classic shapes with a twist, I'm all for their ankle boots in embossed leather. Don't forget to check out their accessories and jewelry, too!
As you may know, I've been on the hunt for the perfect wool fedora/panama hat hybrid since August. I thought I'd be able to find a better deal than the hats over at the Madewell x Biltmore collaboration, but I really haven't! The lower price points look inexpensive and as something you could potentially wear every day, a hat should be somewhat of an investment. This navy hat is big but not too big and the navy color is just perfect. I'll take a size small, please!
Speaking of navy, this sea-hued vegan messenger bag from Zara could by the winner in my fall bag search! Croc-embossed with zipper detailing and just enough room for a MetroCard, IPhone and my favorite Nars lipsticks, this bag would add just enough polish to my cold weather looks.
And finally, I've been wanting to jump on the overalls train for the last few months, but haven't found the perfect pair (especially hard since I don't want to pay $250!). H&M has once again pulled through with a wallet-friendly but still fashion-forward pair in black skinny denim. I have about 6 pairs of black denim/coated black denim, so this would definitely be the perfect addition to my collection. I would throw a comfy sweater under this pair and wear everything else in this post for a seriously killer fall look.
