Faux Fur Pink Coat

Hi friends! Sorry for going MIA once again. Turns out when you don't feel well, even the simplest tasks become a challenge. I've gotten some questions about what the latest is with my health, if I got approved for the LA study, etc. As of now I don't have any definitive answers or what our game plan is. Once I have an update I'll be sure to share :) Thank you again for all your love and support, it truly keeps me going. 

Now for this outfit - how cute is this coat? I know some of you are probably thinking it's a little ridiculous to wear a thick faux fur coat like this in the Spring, but Colorado isn't done giving us surprise snow days, so I haven't packed up my fun winter layers just yet. I also feel like this is a piece that can be worn into the spring and transition you from those cooler temps. It's a fun statement piece you can layer over anything (think dresses, shorts, etc.). Also, this particular jacket isn't as heavy as you'd think so you definitely won't be burning up. Plus, this blush color is so trendy right now making it that much more of a great transition piece. 

Let's chat about these jeans for a second. If you follow me on Snapchat (@mallorysauer), then you may have seen me struggle to get this pair off because the ankles are so tight. That is still 100% true. I don't know why the ankles are so tight, but it definitely makes them challenging to get on and off. The rest of the jeans fit great (from the calf up). It could just be me but I wanted to give a fair warning. Other than the tight ankle issue, I love these jeans. They look so cute with everything. The distressing is so cute and the wash/color is perfect. And they're under $60! I'm determined to find a way to make them work.

That's all I have for now. Have a great week my loves!

Hi!! Man it feels good to be blogging again! I haven't done a post in a while and that kills me, but I had some unforeseen health problems come up (if you're curious you can read more about that here) that put a lot of my blogging projects on the back burner. But I'm back and have lots of fun outfits and stuff to share with you!

Today's post is all about basics. This entire outfit is the epitome of some of my favorite closet staples, in my opinion. This is an outfit that I live in and is perfect for these random cold days we have in Colorado as we transition into Spring. Plus I just really love fur vests so I'll take any excuse to wear them before it becomes too hot. I really love this one from NXSW - the fit and color are great and it feels luxurious without the luxury price tag. I added this fun bralette for a little extra edge. I thought the front detail was super fun and adds a fun little something to the look. Anytime I'm struggling to put an outfit together, I always throw on this tee and my leather leggings and head out the door. Every piece in this outfit is a closet staple because you can get so much wear out of each item! Let me break it down for you.

1. White Tee: It should be no secret that I LOOOVE a good white v-neck tee, and this Z Supply tee is my absolute FAVORITE. I have it in 4 colors. Excellent fit, goes with everything and just super comfortable. White tees go with everything. Having the perfect one in your closet is a must.

2. Fur Vest: Instantly adds an extra little something to an outfit. Throw it on over your basic tee like I did to jazz up a simple outfit, pair with your favorite dress for a little extra something - the possibilities are endless. And there are a ton of great vests on sale right now so perfect time to stock up! I've linked some good ones in the tool below. 

3. Leather Pants: These have almost replaced my jeans. I live in these leather leggings. My first pair were faux leather because I wasn't quite sure how I felt about the trend, but after two years I'm sold. Investing in a high quality pair that will last forever was something I'm glad I did given how much I wear leather leggings. They seriously go with everything and, again, can add just that extra little edge to an otherwise simple outfit. 

What are your favorite closet staples? Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! Did you catch my Snapchat story sharing how I get my lunches ready for the week? If you missed it, the story should be live for a little longer - my username is mallorysauer. Let me know if you guys would like to see more stories like that!

First, this coat. So cute and actually not super heavy so it's perfect for those cooler nights, but still wearable as we transition into spring. I also love that it can be dressed down with jeans and a tee as shown here, or dressed up for a night out. I love getting my fashion coats from Shein - the quality is better than you would expect for the price. Second, how fun is this shirt? I thought it was fun and playful (especially since I'm on my phone non stop doing blog-related things). If you happen to buy - SIZE UP. I'm wearing a large, for reference, and usually wear a small.

Make it a great week, thanks for stopping by!
