I remember coveting this coat from Deborah Lloyd’s tenure at Banana Republic back in 2004. Even though I had my Gap employee discount, I couldn’t justify the purchase on my modest college budget. But some things are meant to be. I stumbled across the coat on eBay a couple of weeks ago and scored it for $40.
Right now, I’m coveting:
- The announcement that Milly is collaborating with Banana Republic this spring
- Bright green onyx earrings
- The sweetest set of pencils
- Laser cut details on this clutch
- Springtime stripes on a Tucker skirt
- A monogrammed succulent planter
- A ring that commemorates the day Dave and I met: 2/2 (it might just be Valentine fever that’s making me sentimental)
If it’s mint, turquoise or stripes, I’m sold. What can I say? The heart wants what it wants, so it’s no surprise that this necklace from Outfit Additions is my latest go-to gem. Outfit Additions is a California-based accessory store that offers unique designs and quality workmanship at affordable prices. In fact, everything in the shop is under $60 with free shipping. (Seriously, free shipping gets me every time.) You’ll want to keep this one in mind for your holiday shopping, even if it’s just for yourself.

Necklace: c/o Outfit Additions // Ring: c/o Gorjana // Coat: Ann Taylor // Dress: J.Crew // Clutch: Diane von Furstenberg // Shoes: Kate Spade (this season’s version has a bow – swoon! – but I can’t find it online yet)
I bought this dress from J.Crew years ago and it has since become a frock I reach for repeatedly each fall. It’s a simple, a-line shift, but the ruffles on the bottom keep it from looking too mundane. It’s also the perfect canvas for this Ann Taylor jacket.
Dress: J.Crew (similar) // Coat: Ann Taylor // Bag: Coach (vintage, but current version here) // Shoes: Kate Spade (similar) // Bracelet: Gorjana // Earrings: Jeweliq (no longer available, but the necklace version is here) // Nails: Revlon “Peachy”
Every now and then a pair of shoes come along that are too perfect to pass up, like these Kate Spade “Cora” loafers. The sparkles are irresistibly feminine, but the conservative shape keep the shoes from being too over-the-top for daytime outings.
Note: If you’re interested in the shoes, go down a half size. I normally wear a 7 in all Kate Spade shoes, but wear a 6.5 in these.
