What I wore today: 02/22/2015 (Snow White, Rose Red)

Snow White Rose Red outfit: Hunter wells, black high-waister skinny jeans, furry/feathery white t-shirt, Calvin Klein light gray wool coat with leather trim, Red see-through Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag

I love wearing simple items with special details. When I saw someone wearing this coat in the elevator of my office building, I immediately started searching for it online. Luckily, I found it at an outlet for a third of the original price. I was so excited! I love how it looks clean and classic, but the asymmetry and the placement of the leather details also brings a slightly sic-fi sensibility. 

The Marc by Marc Jacobs bag is also a recent outlet find. My favorite thing about it is that there's a hidden section behind the clear front so that I can achieve that transparent look without having to display every single thing in my bag.

What I wore today: 02/13/2015 (Purple People Eater)

Purple People Eater Outfit: Ikat Madewell pants, black leather peplum top, Anthropologie cardigan, sliced agate necklace, ankle boots, geode ring

I don't usually get so match-matchy, but, when I saw how cute this sweater looked with these pants, I couldn't help but throw on my favorite sliced-agate pendant and my new purple geode ring. I bought this sweater right before our wedding last year and wore it a lot on our cozy, snow-covered-cabin honeymoon, so I think it'll always make me think of those wonderful memories.
