Happy Friday and first full week of the New Year! I hope your 2015 is off to a good start.
The past couple of weeks I did some serious damage in the shopping department. I guess I should be glad I didn’t swear that off as part of my New Year’s Resolutions! Cozy oversized sweaters and, of course, sweaters adorned with bling had to be welcomed into my closet to ring in the New Year. Not to worry, my purchases will appear on the blog soon enough.
In the meantime, I am going to take a shopping hiatus. Well, at least until this month’s credit card bill gets paid. But there are a few items that I am loving for 2015.
I purchased the J. Crew pavé link bracelet as a Chirstmas gift to myself, and the matching pavé link necklace has now made it onto my wish list. Fortunately for my wallet, it is sold out online! But some items are more needs than wants. I have been wearing the same black winter coat (which has served me well!) for longer than I would like to admit. It is time for an upgrade this winter. I’m gravitating toward a neutral coat that will go with anything and be a staple for many winters to come. The Karen Miller belted coat is the perfect choice, as it is elegant and has a nice shape to it. Also, I am in desperate need of a cute beanie and a pair of driving gloves; having a heated steering wheel can only get you so far. And while we are on the subject, a pair of over-the-knee boots (those grey suede Stuart Weitzman’s fit the bill!) would help get me through the long, cold days ahead, too!

That coat looks so beautiful. I can just see myself smearing lipstick or dropping red sauce on it. I will have to admire that beauty from afar. Hope your weekend is a good one.
Cold weather can be such a bummer (hello face freezing the moment you walk out the door!) but these options are sumptuous and lovely! Great picks.

I’m glad you liked my picks Meredith! I’m not a fan of cold weather, but as long as I can still look fashionable I guess I will deal.
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
