We recently made a trip to the Pacific Northwest and I was totally set for the rainy temps with a few great fancy finds!
St. John Long Trench Coat [secondhand, $63] H&M White Blouse [new, $10] Gap Ankle Skinny Pants [new, $20] Hunter Chelsea Quilted Boots [new, $75] Gucci Clubmaster Sunnies [new, $140] Primark Backpack [new, $9]
The St. John trench is a piece I found through Poshmark. St. John is a high end brand with outerwear typically running in the $800- $1500 range. See for yourself HERE! This piece is vintage and needed a little cleaning, but was priced at $100. I had this item in my "liked" list and had made a few offers to the seller which had been declined. Over the course of a month the piece was not selling (its out of season) and eventually the seller lowered the price close to where I had been offering and I scooped it up! It is such great quality with a wool lining on the inside, so it super warm. It was longer than I expected but overall this is a great closet staple that really pulls an outfit together!
I have been so in love with the Hunter Chelsea quilted boots for a long time. They are classic and easier to wear than the tradition Hunter tall boot. These shoes don't typically go on sale because they are pretty timeless. and are priced at $150 However you can find designers selling unique colors and patterns of their items through eBay, which is exactly how I found these! Hunter was selling this color of the Chelsea directly through eBay, maybe because this color was a seasonal color and was not as popular as anticipated. Either way, I scooped up this pair at half price and with free shipping! The only sad part about this story is that I had actually ordered these for our trip to Europe and they were delivered the day after we left. *tears down cheeks emoji*
