I had a totally different post planned for today, but my little dude managed to break my laptop! A few drops of coffee in a covered travel mug three feet away from the computer are all he needs to wreak absolute havoc on his mama’s work life. Impressive.
Since my computer and photo editing software are M.I.A. for a few days, I thought I’d bring you a look at what I not-so-secretly wish I could be doing instead of working: shopping.
Here’s what I want in my closet this winter.
I usually like my plaid grungy, not preppy, so these cool, oversized checks are the perfect middle ground. A big, bold plaid looks graphic and modern and it’s accessible for those of us who don’t normally go for plaid.
I love it in black and white, but it would also breathe new life into more classic red and green plaids. And when you pair it with an unexpected silhouette it gives new life to winter basics.
Okay, so I’m probably never going to be able to afford one of these incredible Valentino pieces, but I sincerely hope the dark, moody butterflies inspire other designers, because I think they’re absolutely magical.
I wear a ton of black in the winter (who doesn’t?) and the luxe butterfly pattern would look absoltely rich against a neutral background. The pattern is vivid, mysterious and unabashedly romantic, so I love the idea of pairing it with funky accessories.
I have a weakness for blazers and leather jackets and this updated moto jacket combines the best of both worlds. The bouclé yarn is dressy enough for professional events and the asymmetrical cut and tough vegan leather sleeves give it the edge I love.
I actually picked up this exact jacket on Shopbop last weekend (just so you know, they’re one of my marketing partners) and I can’t wait to wear it with jeans and skater skirts when the weather gets colder. There are so many more great jackets in the shops this season that I might have to pick up another one!
Which look is your favorite? What will you be wearing this winter?
