Girly Edge

Happy Friday! Hope everyone's work week is going pretty well. I'm looking forward to the long weekend in Tahoe. =) Anyway, Ping and I went shopping last weekend and did a bit of damage. I was initially looking to find a new black pea coat but ended falling in love with something completely different. Have you ever tried on an item of clothing and as soon as you wear it, you instantly NEED to have it?? Well, that happened to me with the jacket below...

I wanted to style it with girly but edgy flair so I paired it with a flowy top, colored pants, and a little leopard print to boot.
This jacket was a perfect fit!
These coated jeans/leggings from J Brand are so comfy and I love the maroon shade of red
Side view
Close-ups of the jacket...it's so cool how it's a mixture of wool and faux leather!
Lastly a photo without the jacket

Zara combined woollen jacket (buy) -- Supre sheer bow blouse from Australia (similar and craving this one!) -- J Brand coated denim in Coated Clay (buy) -- Rubi leopard print heels from Australia (similar)
Accessories: Michael Kors mini runway watch (buy) -- faux pearl bracelet (similar) -- Modtoast arty ring in Coral (buy and similar to this YSL one)

What is a recent item that you "HAD to have"?? Have a lovely Labor Day Weekend!

  1. Oh! Great price on that jacket! The "I want this so bad" items are the best! Those purchases are the ones that feel most satisfying! :)

    My "had to have" was the darn Tillary purse from J. Crew. :)

    Enjoy your time at the lake! Very jealous!!
