I live in the midwest, which means like 10 months out of the year, you’ll probably need a jacket at some point. Personally, I LOVE jacket weather. I hate being hot, so the in-between seasons are my favorite. Even winter doesn’t really bother me much. I’m a cold climate person all the way.
I found this Reiss sweater coat on Poshmark, and it was a total steal. It retails for around $300 and I got it for $35. You’ll figure out quickly I’m a HUGE fan of Poshmark. I’ve gotten some really amazing deals there, and I also love that they have a guarantee on brand authenticity, so it’s one of the safer places to buy designer stuff (to risk buying designer on Ebay is not for beginners). A couple of times, I’ve received items that weren’t authentic on Poshmark and Posh refunded me right away.
Speaking of… these Prada bow pumps were a great second-hand Ebay find. I managed to get these in never-worn condition in the original box with receipt for about 70% off retail. Impressive considering I’m pretty certain these are from the 2010 fall collection. Someone else was just as afraid to wear them and mess them up as I am. Lol!
Random tip: if you ever buy Prada or Miu Miu shoes online, they are one of the few designers that actually run big. I always go a half size down.
The bag is definitely not designer (I got it on Amazon here!), and I freaking love it. For a long time, I kept obsessing over my friend Arielle’s black backpack. She had the perfect leather backpack that was casual enough to be useful day to day but still nice enough to dress up. She carried it the whole time we were in France together, and I wanted to steal it. I finally found one, on Amazon of all places. And let me tell you, this bag is the SHIT. I can’t even believe how well made it is. It was like $60, it’s real leather (!) and I use it all the time. I’ve had it for a little over a year, and it’s held up extremely well. It’s even possible to carry a 13 inch Macbook in it. I also like that you can adjust it to wear it as a backpack or a shoulder bag. It’s still available on Amazon! There are a few different versions of it, but they’re all under $60. Really, I am not just trying to schill something here. These bags are a GREAT buy for the buck.
Here are a few versions of this bag from this seller that are available. This particular style is also available in a really pretty wine color.
From the looks of things, it’s going to stay cold here longer than I’d like. As much as I love the cool weather, I’m also ready to go outside and lay in the grass. I’ve always thought I’d do so great in a high desert climate… hot, dry days and cool nights. And none of that horrible Indiana humidity!
Stay safe and stay cool everyone!
