Wild About Animal Prints!

As a self-described hoarder of coats, this double leopard topcoat from J.Crew is my newest fave. My penchant for wearing all black makes this coat all the more essential to my wardrobe. What a pop animal prints can give an otherwise monochromatic outfit.

Pair with black ankle pants, a black turtleneck and black flats for a chic and easy daytime look. Or throw it on over a red dress for a night out. Dress up jeans and jeweled heels or choose athletic pants for a more “street style” look.

The possibilities are endless!

Daily Covet: Winter Flurries

We have had the craziest weather here in Middle America this year. It was kind of a cold spring until rain ruined half our allotted summer pool days. And this week, a fairly big snow complete with frigid winds and single digit temperatures showed up. In early November. Grrrrr…. or should I say Brrrrrr?

Since I canceled my gym membership recently for lack of “attendance,” I have taken to working out outside when I do fit it into my routine. However, I have always stood by the fact that cute workout clothes and new running shoes are enough motivation for me to get my butt back into the groove.

What better inspiration is there than this base layer Flurry Ombre set from Athleta? I love how cozy it looks and how cool the flurried pattern is. It’s also sassy enough to wear without layers aprés ski or peeking out of your winter parka when you’re on the run!

Daily Covet: Paris Flats?

I want so badly to be writing more, but now that my three buddies are off to full-time school, I feel more inclined than ever to take care of business. The paying kind, sadly.

Nonetheless, I couldn’t NOT post these chaussures trés mignonnes! If you read this blog, well, as “regularly” as I don’t post, you will know that I love all things French. And to say I have been looking for black flats for some time and the absolute luck that I would find some with the Tour d’Eiffel and L’arc de Triomphe is just beyond the beyond.

So without further adieu, check out these Del Toro Paris Flats from Anthropologie. They are a little pricey, but am I worth it? Je pense que je suis.
