A Winter Coat Kind of Day

Some of the best outfits are the simplest. That simple, chic, and modern look is what I was going for when my boyfriend and I had reservations at Perch in downtown LA. I love warm weather and the sun, so I was pretty bummed when it was overcast and chilly on my birthday this past weekend. This kind of weather is not really conducive to wearing a cute birthday girl dress! 

But of course that didn't stop me, I made it work. I just recently got these bleached J Brand skinny jeans at Nordstrom Rack. I love the light wash, and the unique bleached design. Also, they fell at the perfect ankle length, which is a look I love with heels and actually wish all my jeans were hemmed to. I also recently got these classic and simple, nude colored strappy sandals from Steve Madden. I've been desperately needing a pair like these and have worn them the past three days because (1) they obviously go with everything and (2) they are so comfortable! 

In keeping with the simple and chic theme, I wanted to wear a plain white top and was happy to sport my new Banana Republic sweater knit tank top that has a longer chiffon under layer. I love how its unique, modern and fresh, and most importantly on sale! Lastly, this amazing coat pulled it all together. It is in a black/white/gray tweed and has a contrast leather collar. It is from Forever 21 of all places! Although I prefer warm weather, I also appreciate those rare chilly days in LA when I can actually wear my cute coats! 

As for finishing touches, I wore my Miriam Merenfeld necklaces, a short monogram and a long moon pendant in gold. Slim and sleek jewelry are the perfect way to accessorize such a look. My black triple zip satchel from Lauren Ralph Lauren: classic, timeless, and needs no further explanation.
