Silver and Gold
• white and gold metallic coat from Forever21
• Gap 1969 jeans from Gap
• silver flats by Audrey Brooks, DSW
• vintage camel suede clutch
• silver and gold disk earrings from Valentina, Winnetka
• men's watch, jeweled bangle
I picked up this coat a few years ago — proof that some items from Forever21 do last! — and I have worn it to everything from weekend shopping trips to work days to weddings. I've gotten so much mileage out of this piece and it only cost around $22! It's one of my many, many, in-between season coats that I cram into the 2 mild months we get each year here in Chicago.
The earrings are my favorites ... one of my best friends gave me this pair for my birthday one year and I wear them all. the. time. I get tons of compliments on them and they can be worn with everything. Steve even noticed how much I love them so he modeled my engagement ring after the design! I even bought a second pair in all gold so that I could give my other pair a break. I haven't found them anywhere else besides Valentina in Winnetka, they sell for about $35.
