One of the top items on my London shopping wish list is a beautiful fall coat. I bought my very first real coat last season in red (last seen here, similar version this season here and here) and it was then I fell in love with how elegant a nicely made coat can make you feel.  I'm thinking this season I'll invest in a neutral color. I tried on these Ted Baker coats in their store and they are absolutely gorgeous on so I think this may be the coat for me this season. I can't decide if I want the long version or the short, the camel or the natural (ivory). I'm leaning towards the "natural.", but help me, what do you think? What's your favorite?

Ralph Lauren jacket (sold out, but love the similar jackets here and here), J.Brand jeans, Everlane tank (worn backwards), Jennifer Zeuner lariat necklace, Mansur Gavriel tote

I'll be honest, I was on the fence about this jacket. I've been trying to stick to investing in classic staples and I wasn't sure I could write off a Western themed all over fringe jacket as such. After 5 minutes of careful thought, I realized that a black suede jacket is totally classic and hit the purchase button shortly thereafter. I can be highly convincing, even when it's myself I'm convincing. 

Per usual, my instincts were right and it's been on repeat since it came into my life.  I can wear the simplest of outfits like jeans plus a tee and just add the jacket to turn.it.up. Most recently, I wore this outfit on Sunday to the London Film Festival's screening of The Face of an Angel. It was fun seeing Cara Delevigne in her movie debut as I don't think I've ever heard her speak before. Personally, I would run out and go get a fringe jacket before I'd run out and see the movie....
