This leopard coat is my everything.
I could not love it more and I wear it all the time (evidence here, haha!). J. McLaughlin gifted it to me two years ago. They brought it back last year but did not stock it this year which is a bit of a bummer. I kept stalking the site with high hopes but no such luck. They do have a very cute faux shearling coat on sale but I digress. What makes it cute/special/flattering is that it doesn’t have a collar. I find that a collar on a faux fur coat tends to be bulky and look a little costume-y. I can’t even tell you how many hours I spent combing all of my favorite retailers for a dupe – I had just about given up when I found this one at Ann Taylor. It’s perfect. So if you are looking for a similar coat, get this one – it’s spot on!!!
It’s no secret that I love leopard and red together so I paired it with my cozy Aether scarf and then kept the rest of my outfit reaaallllly simple!

Yesterday was not my favorite. I was so rushed between meetings that I accidentally walked SMACK into a street poll. I hit my head so hard. Besides being super embarrassing, it really hurt and for about a half hour my vision was weird. Then when I got back to Brooklyn, a creepy old man followed me home from the subway, yelling at me the whole way. I stopped into a coffee shop and luckily he was gone when I got out. It was scary though.
I hope you guys have a great weekend! Tomorrow I’m heading up to Bedford for my really good friend Deirdre’s holiday party. Other than that, yoga on Sunday and maybe some more bad holiday movies. Whyyyyy is it so much fun to watch (and snark!) on them???
(As an aside, Deirdre just released her new holiday collection and the pieces are so good! (And I love that SHE is the star of the lookbook – she has the best style!!!) I’m definitely going to need these glittery green earrings… they are so me!!!)
Last but not least – I know I’m a broken record about these gold hoop earrings but they are the BEST. Big but not heavy at all. I have been wearing them almost every day… they’re def a new favorite.
