Daily Covet: Collarless Coat

I adore the simple lines and no-nonsense style of this Zara collarless coat.  And what better color to welcome early spring than my favorite turquoise?  It’s the perfect weight and style for virtually any outfit…  Black ankle pants, faded jeans or a girly mini dress are all ideal under this cute topper.  And it’s so affordable under $140!

Daily Covet: Zara Quilted Jacket

Oh yes, it’s coat and jacket season again soon!

If you are a regular follower of this blog, you know full well that I love myself some outerwear!

Pair outerwear and quilted fabrics, and I’ve got heaven on earth.  This adorable jacket from Zara’s fall collection has a round neck that I UH-DORE.  The almost bomber feel of this cute quilted jacket from Zara mixes classic and biker perfectly.

For a girl that lives in jeans (when I’m not in my little black sweats, that is) and knit dresses and knit skirts, this jacket pulls everything together with chic sophistication.

All hail the leather shift dress

It seems like leather shift dresses are been popping up everywhere.  From Zara last fall to Valentino this spring, leather comes in many styles and colors.  But no style more often than the shift, which is great for us short, non-super model types.

Here are a few photos of this great trend in women’s dressing, and one of those pieces that you can splurge on because undoubtedly, it will be “in style” forever!
