Happy Sunday loves!
My last 'favorites' blog post was made back in May, when I decided I didn't want to do monthly favorites anymore, because they were too repetitive, and rushed. The truth is, I do not shop enough to accumulate a giant, new list of favorites every month. I am a creature of habit, and when I like something, I tend to wear it into the ground. So I'm going to be doing 'current favorites' from now on- these blog posts will come every few months, whenever I feel like I have a sufficient number of things to talk about.
1. The Teddy Coat
I feel like this might be cheating, but I'm going to do it anyway. I purchased this coat from Zara two weeks ago, and it has already been one of my best purchases of the fall season. I got really into teddy coats last winter, and this AW is no exception. You can find this teddy bomber here.
This little teddy fits me really well, and feels so soft and warm, in the brisk fall months. Here in Minnesota, winter comes fast. It's been in the 40s-50s °F lately (~4-10°C), and winter appears to be fast approaching this year, so the coats have been coming out early.
The neutral cream color makes it easy to style, and I've been wearing it with everything, from trousers, to skirts, to jeans. I highly recommend this jacket for the autumn months, and if you live in a place with mild winters, this might be the perfect teddy coat for the winter too!
2. The Black Coach Slides
I bought these beautiful little Coach Outlet slides back in August, and haven't taken them off since. Some purchases get worn only for shooting, or only for special events, but these slides get worn everywhere, for everything. These are my go-to shoes for class, and work. They are the most comfortable shoes, and they go with everything.
3. Skinny Cat-Eye Sunglasses
I bought a simple pair of cat-eye sunglasses from H&M a few months back, and I've worn them more than I ever thought I'd wear a high-street pair of sunglasses.
These are so flattering, and easy to style. They've been with me everywhere this summer, and will be entering the fall and winter with me as well. They were only $12.99, and worth every cent. I couldn't find the pair I own on the website, but you can definitely find similar sunglasses at other high street locations.
These are technically tortoise shell, but the design is so dark, they basically look black. If you would prefer a higher quality version of this versatile style, you can find a similar pair from Le Specs.
4. Glossier Cloud Paint
As I said earlier, I am such a creature of habit for most things. I actually don't have any photos of the Glossier Cloud Paints, because I never bought them for the sake of photographing them. I love Boy Brow and the Stretch Concealer as well, but I always wear Cloud Paint. I wear it every day, and I always take it with me on the go.
The colors Beam and Dawn are my absolute favorite.
As far as tried and true favorites, these items probably complete the last few months. In August and September, I've accumulated quite a few new things that may end up on my favorites video, but I'm happy with this short and sweet list for now.
I hope you had a lovely weekend, I'm wishing you a good and productive week! Happy October! Spooky season is here!!
