Faux Fur & Stripes

You guys, it's finally chilly enough for me to start wearing my Willow & Clay jacket. I got this at the beginning of May but any attempt at wearing this made me feel like a puddle of sweat. So not cute. Into storage the jacket went and well worth the wait.

Willow & Clay is a brand I discovered way back during market week. Their collections have a bohemian vibe and made for the free spirit. The jackets & kimonos are killer and affordable. Lucky for you guys, it seems like the line has gotten picked up by Nordstrom Rack & Saks Off 5th.

Since we shot these photos during the middle of the work week I went for casual glam. (I'm not a fan of getting too glammed to sit at my desk for 8 hours). Or, should I say another outfit to wear with stripes.

Seriously, I've been on such a freak over stripes lately. There's a J. Crew near me so after wearing this shirt for a bit I went back for the rest of the striped shirts. I'm not excited to see my credit card bill but at the same time, I know I'm going to wear the $hit out of them.

For this look, I wore my stripes with my coated denim and these sleek black boots from Zara (which are surprisingly comfortable). Since pockets are non-existent with this outfit I carried around this tiny clutch from Quilted Koala for all the important things.

Sidenote: I finally organized my skincare & makeup. There's a lot so I've begun using some of my kitchen cabinets to store them. Hopefully, I'm not alone in this. Do you guys store anything not kitchen-related in your cabinets?
