noir head to heel.

this season has been a bit about coveting some great pieces from club monaco... and this jacket is now mine! woop woop! i was on the hunt for a classic black trench, but something with a twist to keep it unique. it totally fits the bill, and it was a steal! (more on that... keep reading...)

this #allblack look is the ultimate mix of highs and lows... and better yet, some of the highs i scored at a low price! the club monaco collection trench coat is now sale on sale!

this adorable kate spade novelty clutch is on sale and won't last long!

and the core ensemble is from a new website i discovered, DAILYLOOK.
hello great basics and vegan leather! perfect for the holiday season and to last year round. enjoy!

talk about a statement! this coat says it all. it is super luxe, but i am loving it paired down with this weekend look. i totally think leopard is a neutral. don't you agree?

btw, this sweater is super soft, not too bulky, and SO warm! perfect as we head into the chilly months! (oh, and it's on sale! :) )

over-the-knee and cozy.

ok guys, but these boots though! seriously, i am obsessed. they were definitely my investment of the season and i thought about them for at least a month before pulling the trigger, but they are mine now and I couldn't be happier! club monaco really pulled out all the stops to make the perfect otk black suede boot. i hope you agree ;) paired simply with grey denim and an oversized sweater, this is a go-to fall ensemble. try also pairing with tights and a mini skirt or a dress! enjoy!
