Last weekend, Keith and I had such a great weekend celebrating his birthday. Aside from getting to hang out with some of our closest friends, we finally went to see The Book of Mormon! I was afraid it wouldn't live up to the crazy hype surrounding it, but we really loved it! Rent is still my all time favorite, but this one, along with Wicked, definitely makes my top three. What are some of your favorites?

I wore my new trench, a recent find from the Express outerwear section, which I'm always a fan of. They have a great selection of both trendy and classic pieces, without having to break the bank. Remember this coat from last year? Paired it with my high waisted jeans and this nifty little convertible backpack.

Have a good one!

A Favorite Combo

Knit: Helmut Lang via Nordstrom | Leather Pants: BLK DNM  | Booties: Saint Laurent (similar pair) |  Sungalsses: Chloe | Bag: Everlane 'Petra' c/o | Lipstick: MAC Pink Nouveau 

Wearing one of my favorite combinations in life: an oversized chunky knit and leather pants. Today I'm partnering with one of my favorites, Nordstrom's Via C department and after debating between quite a few things (like this funky Helmut Lang grid top), I ended up with the pieces I'm wearing. Considering that I practically live in my black leather pants, adding another pair, especially in this rich eggplant shade, made complete sense.

TIP: when buying leather pants: they stretch out... a lot! When I first put these on, they were basically painted on. Later on in the day, they were practically a size larger. So when buying them, you want them fairly tight! I promise, they will give out. I kind of wish I had my black pair in a size smaller, since they sometimes give me "diaper butt," but it's a lesson learned!

On another note, thank you for the comments on the last post! I love reading your Halloween ideas  and as far as Gone Girl, I promise to stick it out. Also, if there are any other MUST READ books out there, would love to hear.

Blazer: J Crew |  Pants: Rag & Bone | Cashmere Wrap: Margaret O' Leary | Tee: Vince | Pins: Vintage Chanel | Shoes: Manolo Blahnik (also in this color combo) | Lipstick: MAC Ruby Woo | Sunglasses: Celine | Handbag: Celine (similar style)

Three quick things:

1. This cashmere wrap is one of the best things I own. Aside from being an ultra-luxe, oversized scarf, it also serves as a blanket, which makes for the perfect airport companion. It's not cheap, but I can assure you, it's something that will be worn forever.

2. Brainstorming on what to be for Halloween. Are you guys dressing up? If so, as what?

3. I'm incredibly late to the party, but I'm reattempting to read Gone Girl, again. I've tried before, got distracted and it never happened. Giving it another shot! Have any of you read it? What did you think?

Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to my favorite person in the entire world, my other half and my partner in crime. To the man who makes my belly hurt from laughing so much, who challenges me on a daily basis and who always keeps me on my toes. I don't know how it's possible, but I love you more today than I did yesterday! A bit sappy, but so true. Happy birthday, my love!

Coat: Vince (25% off with Friends & Family Sale!) c/o | Jeans: Rag & Bone (25% off with sale!) | Shoes: Manolo Blahnik 'Bipunta' Pumps (also comes in this two-tone color) | Hat: Fleamarket Find (similar) | Handbag: Celine (similar style & 25% off with sale!) | Lipstick: MAC Red mixed with MAC Ruby Woo

I need another wrap coat like I need a hole in my head, but when it comes in this rich charcoal color and happens to be one of the coziest pieces I own, room in the closet is made. Lots of closet space is not something I have, so a major cleaning and donating purge had to take place before anything new was added. It's usually a "one in, one out" policy. 

On another note, I'm sure you guys know about the Shopbop sale going on (25% off most of the site). I didn't get anything new (yet), but rather, repurchased two favovrites: these Rag & Bone legging jeans, which get worn multiple times a week and two of my favorite 'little boy tees' from Vince, since the ones I have are pretty dingy.
