Morning Line: December 16

Dec 16, 2014

Basics that are worn frequently should be made to the highest quality that you can afford.  But for trend pieces, indulgences, occasion items, why not buy a mid-price or affordable piece that you can wear for the weeks that you love it and sell, trade, or donate later?

Recently, H&M has been killing it.  Every time I visit the site, I see a half-dozen things that I love.  And no section is better than their collection of jackets and outerwear.  Here are my favorites:

Wool Blend Coat ($129)

This coat is my absolute favorite, I keep putting it in my shopping cart.  Eventually I’ll pull the trigger.

Gray Faux-Fur Vest ($40)

Selling out fast; get it while it’s hot.

Light Pink Biker Jacket ($50)

I love the idea of pale pink biker jacket with grey trousers and a soft blouse.

Jacquard-Knit Cardigan ($40)

These blanket cardigans are a hot trend right now.  Try one with skinny jeans and a light sweater.

The Find: An Olive Striped Shirt

As you may have noticed, I do not have the most creative personal style. I am here for basics. But what I’m always looking for is basic-but, a piece of clothing that is basic but just a little different.

My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
