The fun part about today’s “Daily Covet” is that I actually am not coveting it anymore! I purchased this retro and totally fabulous H&M coat already – just in time for the Valentine’s Day brunch with my best gal pals. The Dolman sleeves and boxy shape are so 60’s but the collarless style also makes it look sort of asian-inspired. This cute, little number has opera-length sleeves and must-have pockets too. It’s absolutely perfect!
I styled it with boyfriend jeans, a j.crew factory Charley sweater in pale gray and pink suede pumps (old, very old kilty version.) I also wore my Anthropologie glass bubble necklace because the irridescent beads naturally catch the light to reflect pink and gray. Here’s the real thing, but the picture was a terrible “quick pic” I sent to a friend to tell her about my cool find. I included a better mock up of the outfit too.
Ok, enough with the workout speak. It’s January 2nd, and I’m no doubt half way to giving up on my New Year’s resolution to get in shape. But I am certainly not giving up shopping or coveting, so let’s get on with it, shall we?
As much as I love to ooooooh and oggle over items from the famed fashion houses, H&M never lets me down in my real life. I found this adorable pleated leather skirt before the holidays and absolutely forgot about it. In perusing the post-Christmas sale at H&M, I rediscovered it – sadly, not on sale yet.
While it’s certainly not overly expensive, it’s hard to justify a $200 leather skirt for this mom of three that lives in black yoga pants 360 days out of the year. However, it’s a pretty reasonable wardrobe investment with a pretty versatile playbook. The color and pleats lend a soft twist to a traditionally rocker-type piece.
I may just have to treat myself now that the holidays are over.
