12 WINTER COATS THAT LOOK LIKE ZARA BUT AREN'T

Ok, can we just talk about the fact that Forever 21 has been killing it in the outerwear department? I'll be the first to admit that Forever 21 hasn't been my cup of tea for some time now due to quality reasons, but I've noticed that their quality has been gradually improving. Plus, when their styles are so on point I just can't look away. I've compiled the 12 best coats from their site for you to peruse and I hope you like them! I think this olive green overcoat is number one on my list, but I can't quite decide. They're all so good! They have a ZARA and/or Free People vibe to them, but for a fraction of the price. #win

So get out those credit cards ladies, because these are coats that we can actually afford.

PATTERN MIXING



dress: Called to Surf (similar here) || coat: She Inside (similar here) || scarf: c/o White Plum Boutique || shoes: Vince || socks: Target || hat: ASOS || U ring: c/o Prismera 

Hey friendlies!

I'm in full fledged winter mode right now. A girl has got to keep warm at all costs! I'm talking layers on layers like it's my job. With so many layers being worn, it's easy to mix patterns and textures and I'm completely ok with that. Stripes and plaid were my patterns of choice for this outfit. At first I wasn't really sure about the combination, but love how it turned out!

Casual and comfortable striped shirts and dresses are a must in my wardrobe. I just picked up this version the other day and when searching for a similar style for you guys, I stumbled across this beauty. Because it's completely necessary in 28 degree weather, am I right? It's kind of impossible not to want it when it's only $22.74. Get in my closet. 

I hope everyone is having a great week! (Can you believe Thanksgiving is almost here? It totally crept up on me on this year!) xx

CLOSET SHARING


sweater: RVCA (similar here) || hat: H&M (similar here, cheap snapback here) || shoes: Toms

One of the best perks of being married to my bestest friend is getting to steal stuff from his closet whenever I want. (Thanks Jakerz!)

This sweater? His.

That hat? His too.

When I want something baggy and comfortable, I know just where to go! Plus there's something about wearing his clothes that makes me feel extra cozy and warm. Anybody else out there in the same boat? It's kind of the tops. :)

HAWAII ALWAYS SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD IDEA


top: Forever21 (similar here) || skirt: GAP (similar here) || shoes: Old Navy (similar here) || sunglasses: Nordstrom (similar here) || hat: ASOS

How good does Hawaii sound right about now? What I wouldn't do to be laying in warm sand while sipping on a fruity drink, wearing this hat.

These photos were taken a few days ago when the weather was in the 70's and now it's like the arctic tundra here! That's Utah for you!

Hope you all have a great Thursday and thanks for reading. You guys make my day. xoxo

I WHIP MY HAIR BACK AND FORTH



top: Called to Surf (similar here) || pants: H&M (similar here) || coat: Bebe (love this leather sleeved beauty) || shoes: Old Navy (similar here) || sunglasses: Nordstrom (similar here)

Yesterday I woke up at 6:00 a.m. thinking someone was trying to break into our place. I was half asleep, somewhat delusional, and listening to rattling noises from outside was majorly freaking me out. Turns out, it was just the wind shaking our windows and doors! 

The wind here has been insane recently and I can feel that chill in the air which can only mean one thing; snow is coming! You might not be able to tell from these photos, but the wind was going crazy at this time. It was almost impossible to take photos, but somehow my talented Jakerz managed to do it. 

I'm so excited for these next few months! A few weeks of travel, a graduated husband, all my favorite holidays, family time, and so much more!

Hope you all have a lovely Tuesday! xx

40% OFF NORDSTROM SALE




Ok, Christmas has come early. I cannot even contain myself because SO many items I've had my eye on for months now just went on mega sale at Nordstrom!!!

These Tory Burch boots are what dreams are made of, along with everything else shown above. (I mean, when do Zella leggings ever go on sale?! Dying. Dead. Bye.)

But really, it's safe to say that this is one of those posts that I no joke want to own every single item listed. Hi 12 items, please join me in my closet in 5-7 business days.

Oh wait, this is real life and I don't have moneys$s for that. Insert crying emoji.

Welp, I'm off to dream about all these beauties, and possibly cave and order one or two...? :)

Hope you have the best Friday! I have a busy weekend ahead of me, but at least my husband gets back from his financial planning conference tomorrow. Four days is way too long apart. Yes, we're babies.

FALL TAPESTRY


dress: ASOS || clutch: vintage (similar here) || shoes: Rachel Zoe (love these electric blue babies)

 Man you guys, I almost returned this dress to ASOS because I didn't think it fit be very well. I ordered one size larger than I normally do since they were sold out of my size. But I decided to wear it (tags still attached/ yes I'm one of those) to work one day and I got so many compliments on it! SO many! So I guess that means I have to keep it right? Right.

Now I can't stop wearing it. Go figure. And the bright side is, if I decide to go wild during the holidays and gain 5-10 pounds, I'll still be able to wear this little number! Win.

So moral of the story? Wear your clothes with tags on at least once before deciding whether or not to return something... I guess. ;)
