    I am completely swooning over that leather detailed coat! It’s STUNNING! The pink pumps are adorable too, and I cannot imagine living without a denim jacket – an essential for sure! This is such a fun list/post!

    Girl, how do you not own a denim jacket? That leather detailed coat is pretty amazing too.
    Get the army coat too.

    It’s freezing out. The more coats, the better.

      Right?! I had a denim jacket but it was Abercrombie & Fitch from high school! haha I made myself donate it to force a “grown up” version 🙂

      Should have just kept the damn thing, moose and all.

    I would pick the Ann Taylor leather sleeved jacket and pink pumps! So classic and fun! P.S. I actually ordered those pumps yesterday in nude. I’m trying to keep myself from getting them in black & pink, too!

    I always overlook the basics but they are so so essential! Love your picks, especially the mint leather tote!

    Have you tried JCrew’s Cece flat? They are incredible. So comfortable and more supportive than your typical flats but still attractive (unlike Dr. Scholls for example).

      Jessica Sturdy commented:

      Yep, I’ve tried them! They are fab. A few of those styles above are the Cece!

    Just stumbled across your blog! Love your outfits! I was wondering how tall you were and what size just curious. Wondering how close you are to my size, because some of the outfits you wear, I feel like would not look good on my body, but they look so cute on you.
