Studs and Coats

I'm getting really creative with these post titles, aren't I?

Joking aside, there isn't really a whole lot more I can tell you about today's outfit. It's freakishly warm here for being in the "dead of winter" - in previous years we'd be buried in snow and freezing rain by now but this year it's uncommonly warm (here comes grandma Sandra talking about the weather again). I'm just not used to this above freezing temperature in January thing, so today I busted out a coat that's usually reserved for early fall times.

It's a coat by Guess that I've owned for many years and it's still holding up so well! While I've been eyeing my next coat to buy (it's been about 2 years since I've purchased one and it's time), it's not really a bad thing to "shop my closet" so to speak and enjoy what's already there and has been there for years. 

I paired it with shorts, opaque tights, some gold and silver accessories and a funky mustard-meets-lime coloured sweater! Some details:

Sweater - Forever21 (you can always find simple, good ol' basics in their

knit top section here


Blouse - H&M (old)

Bracelets - Pandora, Forever21, Anthropologie

Shorts - DKNY

Tights - H&M

Nail Polish - MAC Light Affair

And, of course, the trusty black studded "Wink" loafers by Dolce Vita. They still have 2 sizes left on the

Nordstrom website here

and they're 50% off, if you're interested. I clearly love mine very much :)



: they now seem to be sold out on Nordstrom but they are available in Pink and on sale at 

ASOS here

 and the black ones are still available on the

Bloomingdale's site

! yay!

That's about it for me today, I purchased a couple of new skincare items in the hopes of calming down my skin - I am having some sort of irritation/reaction to something. I am experiencing redness like never before, and some breakouts which are now on their way out thanks to my trusty La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo. So, any anti-redness skincare items you recommend, throw them my way!

Hope you've had a wonderful week... I am ready for the weekend, is it Friday yet?
