Poppy red is one of my favorite colors to wear. It's so fun and bright, but stays classic at the same time. Plus, it can easily be paired with basic grey and blacks with ease. The coat I'm wearing in the photos above is J. Crew, but from a year or two ago. They keep this color in rotation with their current coats, though. Like this one—it's gorgeous and the exact same color as mine. Also love this one, which is on major sale right now and you can take an additional 40% off with code MUSTSHOP.

My sweater has been on repeat over and over lately. I bought it in a medium so that it would grow with me during pregnancy, but I'll still be able to wear it next year when I get back to normal size since it's supposed to look oversized. It was $70 and is on sale right now for less than $20, so it's a great time to scoop it up! Also comes in green.

As for the rest of my outfit details... this bag by GiGi New York. It comes with a strap to make it a crossbody, but I love carrying it the way you're seeing above. The straps are long enough to go over your shoulder too, so that's basically a triple win. I've used it every single day since I got it about a month or two ago. I honestly love it more than I can remember loving any other bag. 

I pulled out my 5050 boots for the first time this season. It just hasn't been cold enough to wear them until now. The best part is that the boots come up high enough to cover the fact that I am wearing capri-length leggings! These maternity leggings have been my savior. The necklace is Hyla Dewitt's Catalina Pendant. The right hand ring is another long time favorite by Julie Vos in moonstone. My beanie is old, but here's a similar one for $7—oh and this one, too. Glasses are by Prada and although I'm not certain, I think these are the "new version" of mine since mine are basically ancient by now. I think I bought mine in 2011. Prada glasses always fit me so well. I really, really love these.

Today is the first day of my third trimester! Thanks for all of your well wishes last week. I am feeling a lot better now, but still taking it easy so that I don't end up in the hospital a third night. Twice is enough. Come on baby, 83 more days! 


  1. Love this jacket!


  2. This is the perfect winter outfit. Chic, comfy, and stylish!


  3. Love your jacket and bag!!! I tried the beauty counter moisturizer and its wonderful. I have the bare minerals complexion rescue and am having trouble finding the rating on skin deep. Any idea how it rates? Thanks!
