Banana Republic Pants, Pullover, Earrings (old, similar here and here) | H&M Denim Shirt | Guess Trench Coat (old, similar here and here) | Anne Klein Satchel (also like these versions, here and here) | Steve Madden Pumps (old, similar here and here

I am so upset. Next to my Banana Republic pumps that I own, which are always super comfortable, these Steve Madden pumps I'm wearing are the other most comfortable pair of pumps I've ever had. I bought them in December prior to Paris because I wanted a black pair of pumps that were comfortable to go out in, but now I can't find them online!!! And it's upsetting that I can't find them because these pumps are pure magic. I've danced all night in them and my feet seriously didn't hurt one bit, not one bit! Even after walking around Paris all day in possibly the worst pair of boots known to mankind (these Ugg boots, which is seriously so disappointing because first thing you would expect from Ugg is comfort, not the most extreme discomfort your feet could ever feel), my feet were not only more comfortable in these pumps, but they also didn't hurt, at all! And as any woman knows, this is so difficult to find. I tried to find my original receipt so I could see what their name was and possibly find them on e-bay, but I can't find it! I'll just have to keep searching.

Anywho, my all time favorite looks are probably the layered looks. I admire those who can layer items so effortlessly. On a regular day, the only thing I'm layering is a sweater over scrubs...not so chic. I get inspiration from other style bloggers I follow, and my look was inspired by this Vivaluxury look. She can do no wrong, every look of hers is pieced with perfection.

My favorite part of this outfit is the absolutely beautiful color of the Banana pullover, which gives this look that perfect pop of color. Although you don't get to see the back of the pullover in my pictures, the back has this slight cutout on the back, a small, but chic detail that just gives this pullover that extra oomph. You guys probably know by now about my love affair with Banana.

The other exciting part of this shoot was, and I'm sure you guys can notice the difference in quality, the new lens my sister bought! It's the 85mm lens, and this was the first time she actually used it. It produces the most beautifully blurred background, and we are just so excited to finally have our hands on it! I've been so excited to share this shoot with you guys because the quality of these pictures is above and beyond what we've had so far, and I'm just so excited to see what more we can do with this new lens. Did I mention how excited I am? Lol. Anyway, hope you guys like this, and please let me know what you think!

Wow, great photos and super cute look! I love how you paired the beige trench coat with the grey pants. It's not a color combination you see everyday, but you totally made it work! :)
