Favorite Essentials


This look just so happens to be compiled of a few of my favorite essential pieces I own...Starting with of course a basic tee and jeans:

1-This trench coat. This is a trench coat sold at Anthropologie that is compiled of recycled materials. It retails for over $400 and I just so happen to find it at DownEast Outfitters for $20. It was the only one of it's kind and besides finding it sold out online...I haven't seen it anywhere since! Love that.
2-Loafers. I own probably 10 pair of loafers/oxfords. Because I'm tall, I prefer wearing flats. I love loafers or oxfords because I like that they cover my arch and they're always just super comfortable. These my friend Karla found at a thrift store for me! They're Cole Haan. I get complimented on these EVERYWHERE I go. Who donates this stuff? I swear, I ask myself that so much haha.
3-Lastly is this amazing leather bag. It has easily become my favorite favorite I own. It's from Fount Leather Goods.  This is the Bellfield Tote in Hazelnut. I absolutely fell in love with this husband and wife duo and their beautiful work. They are inspired by vintage which as you know I can relate to. And as soon as I pulled it out of the box...I could tell it was something that will last forever! The leather is so supple yet sturdy. After holding it and feeling the quality with my own hands, I don't doubt it will only get better with time. If you don't believe me, just ask everyone who's seen me with it...Including the woman behind me at the post office who admitted she stared at it the entire time we were in line together. haha.

 Beijos!!

  4. Welp. I think it's time to call it: you have THE best closet, ever. Seriously, I'm always lusting over your sleek and minimalist pieces. You just look so darn put-together. And now I'm going to start a loafer collection because after seeing this outfit how could I not?
