The Pile Coat

This pile coat reminds me of a teddy bear in the best way. The cozy texture and cocoon shape are a perfect combination as we race towards winter weather. I’m a fan of the oversized collar and the idea of popping it up so it’s even more pronounced. I also like the ’70s feel that’s minimalist and modern at the same time.

H and M Black Pile Coat Winter 2015

It comes in camel, but the black looks more elegant and expensive to me. The black is also more versatile for December and January’s endless list of events. Wrap yourself up for weekend brunch or toss it over your shoulders for holiday parties with a killer body-con dress (I suggest this must-have from Topshop; I wear it in a size 4).

On sale! for only $89.99, this coat packs style, comfort and a reasonable price tag. Really, what more could you want?!


I don’t know what’s fueling my obsession with burgundy, but I loved this coat when I saw it. It’s a splurge—pure wool and impeccable craftsmanship—so I found a look for less that’s worth checking out. A girl’s gotta have options.

The jeans by Madewell are my favorite. I can’t recommend them enough. The flare is the perfect width, the high-rise is great for casually tucking in tees and sweaters, and the slimming dark wash can be dressed up or down. They run true-to-size, but they stretch, so I’d recommend ordering one size smaller than usual. Oh, and they’re currently 20% off! Don’t you love holiday sales?

The lunchbag-style crossbody (how cute?) is a mere $38, and the striped sweater from Zara has ‘winter staple’ written all over it.

As always, just click on each item directly to shop it. Happy Friday, beauties!
