gold crush

city chic

Hello lovelies!  Spring is on its way (yay!), and the sales going on this holiday weekend have me itching to stock up on transitional essentials.  Put away those yoga pants and Uggs and upgrade your around-town look.  Whether you’re running errands, grabbing coffee, or heading to class, there’s no excuse for slobbery.  Swap out those yoga pants and Uggs for these city chic pieces-

Veronica Beard Chesterfield Dickey Coat on sale for $449 (orig. $1495).  I picked this coat up on clearance sale and it’s AMAZING!  The leather dickey is removable, and I suggest adding a raccoon or fox [faux, if you prefer,] fur stole for some upscale drama.  FYI, I typically wear a size 4 in coats for most brands, but I’m a pretty solid 2 in Veronica Beard coats and jackets.  Read their size guide/measurements before ordering!

Target “I NEED COFFEE” graphic tee $15; Target California Bear graphic tee $13; Target So Far So Good graphic tee $15.  So many cute graphic tees for a great price at Target!

AG Legging Ankle Jeans $225.  The ankle length legging jean is perfect for wearing under boots, with booties, flats, and heels.

Suede Ponte Leggings  by La Fee Verte $49 at Anthropologie; see also Free People Vegan Leggings for $98 from Zappos.  Waaaay more chic than black yoga pants, but just as comfy.

AG Ex-Boyfriend Skinny Jeans on sale for $141 (orig. $235).  A roomier/relaxed-fit jean for those days when you’re not feeling a tight legging or skinny jean.  It happens.

J. Crew Icon trench coat $298. Simply a classic versatile trench.

Marc by Marc Jacobs ‘New Too Hot to Handle’ leather hobo on sale for $358 (orig. $448).  A medium-to-large crossbody body bag is a must for cruising around the city – especially now that stores are charging $0.10 each for shopping bags.

Retrosuperfuture Brown Ciccio Sunglasses $189.  Bold glasses to protect your peepers.

Chloé Suzanna Studded Ankle Boot $1,345.  I’ve raved about these booties before (read blog post here), and I’m still in love with them.  They go with pretty much everything, are super comfy, and hold up extremely well.

Tod’s Fringed Metallic Leather Sneakers $725.  I am beyond obsessed with these sneakers and when/if they go on sale, I will snatch up a pair.  They also come in silver and black.
