a lighter parka.

It is no secret how much I love my parka. I can honestly say that it was the best autumn/winter purchase of 2011 (seen HERE and HERE). As the days are getting warmer I was sad to have to put it away – that is, until I remembered the faux fur lining was removable. Now it makes for the perfect transition jacket to throw over a sweater and a pair of skinny jeans. Don’t you just love purchases that make you happy year-round?

ASOS: parka with detachable lining

7FAM: roxanne skinny jeans

ELLISON: blouse

J. CREW: sweater

ZARA: leopard ballet flats & bag

TORY BURCH: sunglasses


bracelets: Etsy, Juicy Couture, Forever XXI, Mango, H&M

PANDORA: thin silver ring on index finger

DIOR: “lucky” lipstick & nail polish
