Mock Croc

Faux Croc Crossbody Black H&M Winter 2016

Embossed accessories are everything. Give me faux crocodile or snakeskin any day and I’m all over it.

This crossbody—only $24.99!—is made of affordable vegan leather. We all need an LBB (little black bag) in our lives, but this one packs extra punch and looks much more expensive because of the mock croc texture.

Minimalist

I just purchased this Topshop ribbed bodysuit and trousers (they both come in regular and petite sizes—a miracle!). Black and grey are the center of my style universe, and I wore this minimal combination to a meeting last week.

I paired the pants with low black ankle boots—these beauties on sale! at Dune London to be exact—but I love the idea of playing them down with a casual sneaker. They fall just above the ankle and basically scream for a high-top!

The metallic sneaker below was last week’s Spotlight, and they’re on sale! at Nine West for $49.99.

Everything featured is an affordable staple—the bag is only 12.99!—so click on each item directly to shop it. Happy Friday!

Technicolor

This H&M coat is a bit out there, but I love styling something insane once in a while. I warned you that I’m trying to incorporate more color into my life! With a piece this bold—my fiancé calls it my muppet coat—it’s essential to keep everything else streamlined and simple.

I paired this faux-fur beauty with my favorite Topshop body-con dress. There’s something about the ribbed fabric and midi length that’s so flattering. My accessories are minimal as always, and in my mind, this look called for a sleek chignon. My hair ends up in a middle-parted bun on the daily more often than not.

These Nine West ‘Tornaydo’ pumps are beyond comfortable. Arguably the best black heel in my closet. They come in a great suede iteration for winter, but the leather version I’m wearing is 50% off!
