Fab Find Friday: Bundle Up

H&M's purple wool coat is a show stopper.

This suede nap lambs wool coat is a STEAL! $27 dollars, is this real life?!

I'm loving this cobalt blue coat, similar to the one I wore here

Who's here for this olive green parka? ME!

Classic and chic! I'm trying not to hit "add to cart" on this single button option.  

Double breasted plaid print.. YESSSSSSSS! 

Don't let those droppin' temps catch you slippin'! Anyone coat shopping this weekend? 

XoXo,

Sporty Chic

post_melissa2_101914_07.jpg

The title of this post says it all, I'm such a "Sproty Chic" type lady. Ever since this trend hit I've been all over it. Pairing your favorite sneakers with your favorite trench or blazer is a-okay! The streets of New York are always super busy so being comfy and stylish is always a win-win.

These Nike Huarache's are the most comfortable pair of sneakers I own, and I own A LOT of sneakers. If you're in need of a pair please consider, I mean, have I ever steered you wrong? :-)

My Old Navy over-sized blazer came in handy when creating this look! I'll be styling this again soon in a totally different way so stay tuned.

Camo Crushin'

When all else fails, camo comes to the rescue. Finding this camo surplus jacket while browsing on Old Navy's website a few months back made my day! I immediately started putting together outfits in my head and tracking my order by the hour, lol.

Pairing this jacket with denim is always a GO and please get use to seeing this hat because I'm in love with it (by the way I have it in brown now, get ready).

Now that I think about it, this look is a walking Old Navy billboard! They've been really hitting me with tons of great pieces that I just can't leave in the store. Like this bag, I'm really thinking I need it in black as well.

Monday Kinks: Inspiration

These women inspire me so much style and hair. Gosh hi-imcurrentlyobsessed is my one stop shop when I need some hair inspiration, so many beautiful queens and kings submit photos daily and I can get lost for hours scrolling through. 

HAIR UPDATE: If you follow me on Instagram you already know I've been rocking crochet braids and I'm in love! The hair is so easy to maintain and the style will last you from 4-5 weeks. I made sure to wash and condition my hair before the install and will keep my scalp moisturized throughout the 4-5 weeks. I will be keeping this style and getting my next install right before I travel home for Thanksgiving. Thanks again to Morkinks NYC for my new do, if you make an appt be sure to tell her MelissaChanel sent you.
