In My Closet: Isabel Marant Etoile Leather Jacket

After realizing that a good leather jacket was one main thing that I was missing from the French basics list, and after saving for many moons, this gorgeous piece is finally a staple in my wardrobe. It’s such a soft leather and I love the fact that it’s collar-less, it’s a jacket that I’ll be wearing for many, many years.

Cold, rainy days call for warm blanket capes and hats {see also: this post}. I’m loving this Topshop cape and have been wearing it everywhere in lieu of a jacket, so cozy and warm! Have you tried out the cape trend at all?

I love this checklist that’s floating around on Pinterest right now — it’s so helpful to have a tangible list of basics that you can easily mix and match depending on the occasion or season. This is a great way to start building your wardrobe and you can add in trendier, interesting pieces to fill it in as you go. There are a few things I’m missing off of here {a leather jacket is high up on my list!} and a few items I’d add to it: a nice pea coat and a classic pair of sunglasses {like Ray-Bans} are musts for me. Shop my picks from the list below!

Lately I’m loving the look of blanket capes {inspired by Burberry}, cozy knits, and fedoras — it’s a perfect Autumn uniform. Also, that book is on my must-read list.

Happy Wednesday! xo

 So sorry for the lack of content around here — I miss regular posting so much! Here is a little bit of what I’ve been up to lately — Autumn is here and I’m reminded why it’s my favorite season, the weather has been perfect for hot drinks, layers, and boots. It’s been a little hectic balancing life and work but we have a vacation booked to Instanbul in just a few weeks. We’ve heard amazing things about Istanbul and are so excited to experience such a culturally different place. Any tips on things we have to do or see?
