Outfit: Bundled


 Mara Hoffman Coat (old but in a different color, this pretty, or this steal)

Calypso Sweater (sold out but LOVE this) // Current/Elliott Jeans (or try the steal)

Alice + Olivia Pumps (also try this or this) // Oliver Peoples Sunglasses (or the $12 version!)

gifted Rebecca Minkoff Pouch // gifted The Ropes Maine Bracelets

 I splurged on this Mara Hoffman Shawl Coat a few years ago.  Even on sale, it was a big purchase.  A worthy splurge though, if you ask me… as I reach for it over and over again and love the glamourous old Hollywood sort of vibe it exudes.  I wore it here with two of my absolute favorite things… these jeans and this cozy cashmere turtleneck (a Christmas present from the boyfriend.)  It pairs just as easily over a cocktail dress or shift for a night out or big meeting… definitely a classic piece, if you ask me!

    This looks so cozy, Grace! I feel like a lot of women couldn’t pull of something like this, but the combo of the coat, blue clutch and pink lips is a perfect combo!

    I wish that coat was still on sale! It reminds me a lot of the Vince coat I’ve been wanting for so long.

    I’ve been searching for a wrap coat all season (one that doesn’t break the bank). Yours is absolutely gorgeous, but a little out of my price range at the moment 🙁 I love the value option you provided though with the faux fur! I’ve been envisioning a coat without many extra details (again, like yours) but the fur is pretty fun so I’m considering ordering…

    Gorgeous outfit, as always!

    I was hoping to find one like the Mara coat you have at Zara, but didn’t find one. I don’t know if you watched it, but on gallery girls Kerri had one similar to this but with a hood from Zara and ever since then I’ve been on a mission to find a shawl like coat. But since it doesn’t get too too cold where I live I think my mission has lacked some fuel haha. I’ll have to look at the links of the similar coats you sourced.

    You look great with your hair up like that- so unfair! 🙂 This outfit proves you CAN still look chic while staying warm!

    I love how indulgent and cozy that coat and top look. I also love a good belted coat that can pull your look together instantly. What a good start to the week. xo
