FASHION FRIDAY // PRETTY PLAID COAT

Lately I have been all about plaid {as seen here, here, + here}. My closet is official ready for winter and stocked with beautiful patterned pieces {like this scarf, this sweater + and this shirt}. My ultimate favorite accessory has to be this coat that I picked up from Nordstrom a few weeks ago {and ON SALE now!}. It’s cozy, warm, and has the most attractive colors. I wish I could wear it even more before it gets too cold here in Chicago. I paired this plaid perfection with some distressed denim + a cozy sweater {both from Old Navy}, some black leather sneakers {from the Gap and on sale now!} and lastly, I brought back a favorite of mine with this Rebecca Minkoff studded bag. I hope everyone has a great weekend and stay warm!

STREET STYLE // BURGUNDY

A huge fall + winter favorite of mine has always been the color burgundy. Its rich, bold hue pairs well with so many neutrals and adds a vampy pop to any outfit. I love this pretty palette most in pant form {as seen here}, paired with cozy sweaters + pumps. Oxblood inspired bags and fedoras have been popping up everywhere and look best when styled with some black or blue skinnies + bold sunnies. Also, there is always an unexpected twist when I find it in scarves, jackets, and me. Check out some deep purply perfection in my pinspiration below.

Also, hope you all can make it to an amazing event I am co-hosting at Comfort Me Boutique on Thursday night from 6-8PM. Please make sure to check out all the details here.
