Buffalo Plaid & Pop of Red

Isabel Marant tweed coat (similar - on sale!)
Christian Louboutin "Iriza" d'orsay pumps

Bought this Chloe crossbody bag because I liked the fun color (so many colors to choose from!) and durable leather. I was envisioning traveling through Northern Europe in the summer with this small bag slung crossbody, but I couldn't wait to wear it. Along with the bag, I added a couple pops of red to an otherwise reliable monochromatic outfit.

Burgundy Leather Sneakers

H&M mohair cardigan (similar)
T by Alexander Wang silk tank top (similar)
Common Projects leather slip-on sneakers
A.P.C. wool scarf (similar)
Céline Phantom Cabas tote (similar)

Having overworn my Nikes (posts here and here), I finally treated myself to these leather slip-ons. Luxe sneakers almost seem like an oxymoron, but they can make an outfit look more casual while still keeping things chic. Let's see how long I can keep the bottoms of these shoes white -- now I can understand why sneakerheads are so careful where they walk. ;)

Normcore Schormcore

Uniqlo wool cashmere coat (c/o)
Zara stripe shirt (similar here and here)
T by Alexander Wang sweatpants (similar)
Daniel Wellington watch (c/o)

I last wore this camel coat with dressed up neutrals. This time, I wanted to style it with wearable basics, hence "normcore." I've definitely been taking advantage of this sporty chic trend and being able to acceptably wear sweats in public. Anyway, a camel coat is a versatile piece in your wardrobe as there are many ways to wear it -- I have a few more ideas to come!

Deep Green Holiday Dress

Manoush knit dress
Gorjana cuff (on sale!) c/o Rocksbox
Chanel wallet on chain

Every winter, I invest in a couple dresses for holiday parties. For winter dresses in previous years, I've liked richer colors like burgundy and textures like lace. I bought this Manoush knit dress in the summer and surprisingly had enough foresight and patience to wait until now to wear it out. The frilly neckline makes accessorizing easy and minimal, and the deep green color is a subtle yet festive alternative to red.

I've linked products below from sites offering Green Monday deals, which I didn't even know was a thing, but I'm not complaining about more sales. :) You can also check out my Gift Guide Under $100!
