With the exception of this scarf (a gift), I’m actually not wearing anything new in this outfit. Here lies the funny thing about blogging – this industry has gotten to be so much about showcasing new arrivals (which is really fun, don’t get me wrong!) but the hallmark of a good wardrobe is not having to shop very much because you have all the classic pieces that will never go out of style and can just add a few good new things to your wardrobe every season. Pieces like these!
I am rambling, but all of these things = my favorite things. A classic trench (yes, it’s Burberry, but you don’t have to splurge on Burberry – this Topshop one is a-m-a-z-i-n-g and only $150.), a great t-shirt, jeans that flatter your body type, and high heels (I just love heels… yes, flats are surely more comfortable but I’ll always be a heels girl… even my favorite sneakers have a bit of a platform!)
And of course a little vintage Chanel never hurts but certainly isn’t necessary: this Tory Burch bag is so similar, and this little Topshop bag is under $50 and could pass for Chloe. It’s just about getting the colors right… when in doubt, add a pop of red!

PS – Have you heard of Heidi Wynne? If not, check her out. She makes the most insanely gorgeous, soft cashmere scarves… and pretty basket bags, too. I am in love. My friend Permele connected us – I complimented her straw bag and she connected us… little did I know it would lead to me owning the softest cashmere scarf I’ve ever laid eyes on!

I still have yet to hop onto this trend myself, but the flares look good on you!

Such a good camel cashmere scarf! I’ve been on the hunt for one, but looking for one that is a wee bit more affordable 🙁 Loving the colors here – so timeless!
Thanks Lisa!!! Here are some more affordable options for you! Can’t personally vouch for them but they all LOOK pretty similar. 🙂
Love everything about this outfit! Très chic! What is the color of your nail polish?
I’m so sorry but I don’t remember! It’s a navy blue gel manicure from Primp & Polish… I forgot to look at what the color was!
