Grey body con dress: Forever 21
| Navy faux fur jacket: Zara
|White and gold capped sneaks: Aldo | Aviators: Ray Ban |Bag: Chloe
I wore this look (60 degree Decembers in New York call for bare legs as long as possible!) to my 20 week ultrasound check up this past week–I knew I wanted to wear this Zara faux fur jacket, so I kept the rest of the look fairly simple with no frills or patterns– this grey simple form fitting (bump showing!) dress from Forever 21 with my fave white sneaks and a ponytail. I love the kind of glam rocker vibe of the jacket contrasted with the simple tomboyish feel of the rest of the pieces, and can’t wait to wear this jacket with SO many other looks this winter. Another one of my fave ways to wear faux fur is over distressed jeans and a vintagey looking tee– and surprisingly, I RARELY wear a jacket like this over fancy stuff like a cocktail dress — I guess I tend to gravitate a little more to the unexpected. I rounded up a few other black/navy faux fur jackets similar to mine (all my exact pieces are shoppable above) along with other similar items for you to create a look like the one above!
Have a great week!

So I actually picked these black overalls up from H&M months ago, and I just never got a chance to shoot them for a post…yesterday, I wore this outfit to a friend’s house party, and even though this is the first official weekend of summer (!), it was cool and rainy in New York yesterday, so I busted out my favorite overalls outfit one last time before the oppressive heat of summer begins!
Whenever I wear my overalls, people always say to me “They look so cute on you, but I could never pull them off “– and my answer is always OF COURSE YOU CAN!!! Seriously though. Overalls are not just for kids or painters (although whenever I do wear them, male coworkers, friends, and even my husband make an inevitable “how much do you charge to paint a house?” joke…). They are for me, and they certainly are for you too! If you are new to the overalls game, I suggest a black pair like these, because they do feel a little more “grown up” and sophisticated (lol that “sophisticated” is in the same sentence as “overalls). I’ve worn these black ones with this striped tee and Converse many times, but I’ve also worn these with heels to dinner, black and white loafers to work; and I’m already imagining wearing them in the fall with thin sweaters underneath…
This exact pair from H&M is sold out, but below you’ll find three pairs I also like, along with the exact items I’m wearing above.
