statement coat

Primark jacket / Bershka jeans / Aldo shoes / Marc B bag from Topshop

I think every girl should have a statement coat in her closet. Weather it be a (faux) fur coat, an off-beat colour, or a wild pattern, it's definitely a staple in my opinion. My statement coat for this season is definitely my powder blue pea coat. I've been having an intense relationship with powder blue for about a year now and I seriously can't shake it. As soon as I spotted this beauty, I knew it was coming home with me. The shape is so classic, so simple, but the colour is everything. It instantly takes a pair of jeans to the next level and will compliment a fancy look for a special occasion. A win all around. So happy with this addition!

holiday gift guide: Uncommon Goods




I've recently discovered Uncommon Goods, an amazing online shopping destination for unique designs and handcrafted gifts. They provide a platform for artists and designers and about half of the products they sell are made by hand.  Uncommon Goods is literally what the name says - everything in their selection is so quirky, witty and just down-right clever. If you're buying for a woman, they have created a brilliant gift guide here. I especially have my eyes on the Musical Wine Glasses and the Face Mugs. Shopping for a guy? They also have a men's gift guide here. I love the Working Man's Hygiene Kit! And of course, they have stocking stuffers here. I think I need the Foodie Dice and Mixology Dice in my life. Here is a Holiday Gift Guide with all of my favourite things from Uncommon Goods.  

PS: Orders made by Tuesday, December 23rd will be delivered in time for the holidays! Be sure to check out more of their inventory here. All items above can be found in the Uncommon Goods Gift Guides.

fall in paris

Old Navy coat / Primark shirt and boots / Garage jeans 

Sorry for the lack of posts lately! I've been on my honeymoon for the past 2 weeks. We went to London, Paris and Southern Italy. Photo diaries will be up next week. In the meantime, here's a quick outfit post near the Eiffel Tower.
