This is a guest post from Donna Duarte, Style Editor for Woman’s Day and author of the wonderful Motherburg blog.
It took me ten years living in New York to finally buy a black fall coat. Coming from a sunshine state I was use to wearing clothes with color and print, happy clothes my co-workers would exclaimed. I would say that now I have a balance wardrobe of neutrals and prints. The solid palette works longer and if you know me you may notice I wear the same things over and over for I just tend to rework my wardrobe with great pieces that have multiple uses. I also like no fuss cuts but with a twist in the design department. Which is why I love the top from Zara with the leather pockets. I’d wear that to work with a leather skirt and jeans on a Saturday morning. I am a sucker for the printed jean, I love that they bring a wardrobe up a notch and find them perfect for moms since they are quite comfortable. The leopard coat is perfect if most of your wardrobe consists of solid-classic pieces for this coat is fun yet chic. I am a believer in the hat and I’m thinking of getting a more dressier version of the baseball hat I wear any chance I get. The navy Baggu tote is perfect for all year round and the gap boot, $100? Finally a well made boot that isn’t $400 plus.
