FASHION FRIDAY // LEOPARD FLATS

Hellooooo Friday. So let’s talk about these leopard flats. Aren’t they fantastic? I got them from Ja-Vie and love how stylish + functional they are. These bad boys have a built in leather insole, waterproof jelly outsole, AND they are machine washable. I styled them with my favorite pair of distressed denim + a cozy black sweater, both from Old Navy (who is having a sale btw! Get 25% off with code SAVE). Happy weekend and happy halloween!

STREET STYLE // CAPE COATS

One thing that I love most about fall are all the transitional coats I get to wear. Capes are always a favorite and are currently trending. As we all know I love a good cape {as seen here, here + here}. They are great for layering and are the perfect pairing with leggings, booties, skinny jeans, and totes. Below is some pinspiration to help us style our capes this season. What are you waiting for? Go get your cape on!
