For this look, I went with the timeless black, white and red combo. I incorporated touches of rose gold in accessories: from the hardware on my purse to my sunglasses and jewelry to keep in line with the clean and classic ensemble. I’ve had this coat for probably 7 years, but of course since I live in Arizona I probably wear it only once a year, if that! And every year or so that I wear it, I receive so many compliments. White and black never goes out of style, so that color palette is prevalent in pieces that I have the most of. I enjoy keeping up with the trends, but I think pieces like this jacket, especially in the color scheme that it is, is one that is worth spending money on because it’s more likely that you will wear it more rather than something that was “cool” one year but the next it’s “out.”

Also, I’m so stinking ecstatic right now because I finally remembered that By Boe is the brand of this gold “forget me knot” ring! My sister, Jessica, bought it as a gift for me for nannying when she went to New York a few years ago, and I had long since thrown away the packaging with the designer’s name on it. What’s even better, though, is that I discovered Forever 21 carries By Boe in their curated shop! Needless to say, I will definitely be stocking up on more of their pieces. By Boe is based in NYC, and I love how all of their pieces reflect that: dainty with modern details. Their pieces are filled with 14k gold/ rose gold or sterling silver, which means high quality yet still affordable. This ring runs for around $30-40! I put a bunch of pieces below that I have my eye on, let me know which is your favorite!
