Haute Herringbone

I’m back y’all!  Did you miss me?  A LOT has happened during my time off.  I started my new job, hired a new photographer (welcome, Ricky, to the CCB Family), and bought lots of shoes.  Well, not lots.  More like 4-5 pairs.  Anyways, I originally took my hiatus because of my day job.  But it actually ended up serving a dual purpose.  The break also gave me the chance to reset.  To be honest with you, creating content for CCB Diaries was starting to feel more like a job than a hobby.  I LOVE creating content for the blog.  Styling outfits (my favorite part), scheduling shoots, editing photos, and writing posts is really fun for me but I was starting to dread it and all of the other “blogger obligations”.  I needed to get re-inspired and remember why I started CCB Diaries in the first place.  And now I’m back and, with Ricky’s help, better than ever!

Fall has officially arrived in NYC and I couldn’t be happier.  One of my favorite things about living on the east coast is the distinct seasons.  I have always been a big fan of coats but when I was living in California I didn’t get to wear them much.  I guess I was preparing for a move out east every time I bought a wool coat and didn’t even realize it.  I’m so smart.

This coat is one of my favorite wool coats that isn’t black.  I bought it on sale at H&M two years ago even though it was “technically” a size too small.  I really wanted it but it was the largest size they had and I couldn’t button the top 3 buttons because of my – ahem – chest.  But it was such a steal that I couldn’t pass it up so I bought it anyway.  I mean, how often do you find a herringbone wool coat for 50 dollars?  Um, hardly ever.  And I don’t have to button it….right??  One of my favorite colors to wear with this coat is oxblood.  I put together an outfit pre-CCB Diaries with a cream tunic blouse, oxblood skinnies, and my nude Louboutin pumps and it was a hit.  Other colors I’d suggest: hunter green, red, and, if you’re feeling extra bold, fuschia.

This sweater dress is new to my closet.  I purchased it about a week ago and I love it.  And it has pockets…yay!  I plan on wearing it all fall and winter long with my over-the-knee boots and leather jackets.  In all honesty, it’s not super warm but then again I’m always cold so maybe I should leave that to your judgment.  The best part though?  It’s on sale for 41 dollars (originally 73 dollars).  Get it, gurl!

Accessorizing the Herringbone

I always like to add a little “pop” to my outfits and usually that’s in the form of jewelry.  This cocktail ring is so fun!  I find the best costume jewelry at Forever 21 of all places.  It’s a fun and inexpensive way to spice things up.  It kinda got lost in the shuffle of all of my other baubles but she’s definitely a beauty.  And can we talk about these Schutz ankle boots?  They’re definitely a show stopper…and comfortable!  I didn’t plan on buying shoes that day but I was in the neighborhood since I was waiting for the Mr. to get off work and needed to kill some time.  I almost walked out empty-handed but these cuties caught my eye right near the door.  They come in black too but I was really drawn towards the blush color.  I think it really brings out the shoe’s detail.  And the final touch…

    Sweetie, I’m so glad you’re back, but while reading the first part of your post I get myself a reminder. I’ve been on uh “vacation” in London for three days and hence haven’t been active on social media and it feels like I’ve got TONS to do that I HAVE to do and so forth. The truth is, I don’t HAVE to do anything. This is my hobby and it should be fun. Oh and the reason I wrote “vacation” is because all I did was networking for my blog so, haha… you hear me!
    Regarding your style… It’s flawless gurl! I totally love it and you’re a star when it comes to fashion! 🙂

    It’s great to see you back, Amber and you look stunning!
    I love everything about this outfit – that herringbone coat is gorgeous and such a great bargain! (I can never do coats up anyway – I thought that they were meant to be left open!!)
