OOTD: HOW I'M DRESSING FOR THE LAST FEW DAYS OF COLD
Guys, hello! Damn, it’s good to be back! As you probably know if you follow along on Instagram, I’ve been SUPER sick over the last 8-ish days, which is why I haven’t been posting. I’m talking stuck-in-bed-puking-everything-with-horrible-fever kinda sick… And boy am I glad it’s over! When I finally got out of bed yesterday, I realized it’s Spring here in LA and I’m EXCITED!!
You guys know I hate cold weather (which is why SoCal feels like the perfect place for me to live) and I’m always looking for pieces that will carry me through the cold without sacrificing style. Well, this Winter, I found it: this faux fur jacket is everything I always knew I wanted: It’s warm, makes me look like a pimp, makes a statement and goes with everything. I swear, I’ve worn it with no makeup, a loose bun and my Fila sneakers, and it still looked on brand.
While the weather is getting a lot hotter here, I know a lot of you guys are still living in sub-zero temperatures (my poor parents and sister included), so I thought I would post this jacket no matter what, because frankly, I’m living for it.
This exact one is now sold out, but I linked 6 similar options I’m obsessed with right now below, all under $100, so you guys can check them out if you live in a colder place.
I honestly want to get myself another one before the end of Winter, just because I know a good faux fur jacket will always be in style and there are so many super appealing sales right now, the hardest thing will be not wearing it before next year.
But since I’m always cold, this might not even be an issue, because it does get a little colder by the water, where we live, especially at night.
But enough about this jacket that can speak for itself (it IS quite a statement, ha!) and let’s talk about this handbag for a bit, shall we?
I saw it before Christmas and became instantly obsessed. That happens sometimes, and I’m sure it happens to you too: I see something, and I know right away that I’m not gonna be able to stop thinking about it until I actually get it.
Usually it’s some obnoxiously expensive designer item, and I have to come to reason and tell myself that even though this is what dreams are made of, it wouldn’t be smart right now to spend $2000 on one single item. So I keep dreaming… But this bag is actually quite affordable, and it’s perfect. It’s the perfect size, it’s small enough that it’s not annoying to carry around but it still fits A LOT of things. It’s a crossbody, which is my favourite style RN, and once again, it goes with everything.
It also comes with 2 different straps, which is super cool because it instantly changes the look of the bag, and now I want it in every single colour - I linked a few of the available options below, how beautiful is that red one!?! It’s my first-ever Botkier bag, and I’m obsessed. The quality is even better than I imagined, and I’m very happy with it, especially for the price. I bring it everywhere with me, and I have to admit it’s holding up really well.
For the boots I’m wearing, it’s these ones, and they’re on sale right now, under $100. They’re suuuper comfy and I can seriously wear them the whole day without having any pain. For my hat, it’s right here (and it’s on sale too!).
How do you guys feel about a giant faux fur jacket? And are you as obsessed as I am with this bag? Please let me know in the comments below, I love getting your take on outfits!!
Love you guys,
