One of the biggest trends I gravitated towards this past winter was teddy coats. The ultimate option? MaxMara's perfectly oversized version. While my heart was set on this cozy piece, my wallet was not. I settled for this faux fur version from Zara, and it's been a great addition to my cold-weather wardrobe — adding just the right amount of cool to every outfit. I'm hoping this style sticks around a few more seasons!

I picked up this Cuyana Backpack last fall as my new work/life/mom bag. The exterior pockets offer quick and easy access to things like a water bottle, and the interchangeable straps make it extra convenient since it can be worn as a shoulder bag as well. I was drawn to the beautiful croc-embossed leather, and the fact it can fit my 13" laptop! It's all I've been carrying lately to work, the gym, trips to the park, and it makes for the perfect travel accessory. They recently restocked this style, and released a larger version, here.

Thanks for dropping by!
