Have you survived the shopping mayhem?  It seems to get crazier every year.  I am going to share my Black Friday scores with you in a special post tomorrow. 😉  As for today, I wore black and gold, which is one of my favorite color combos.  I got this Michael Kors coat on sale at Macy’s. There are TONS of deals online now, so if there is anything you have been lusting after, now is the time to buy! The boots are Alexa Chung for Madewell, which were an Ebay score since they are sold out everywhere. The calf hair helps to keep the feet warm, which is welcome in the current freezing temps NYC is experiencing! Stay warm everyone! Details on everything I am wearing, and similar looks, are all below!  Let me know what you think in the comments!

Currently Craving: Cobalt

cobalt pics collage Currently Craving: CobaltCobalt blue has become my new obsession. You can see here, on my Instagram, that I have a growing collection of cobalt blue items in my closet.  The color is so electric, and alive. It was my mom’s favorite color too- so maybe I inherited my love of the color from her.

I put together some of my current favorite cobalt items for you.  I recently got a 3.1 Phillip Lim Mini Pashli crossbody bag in this exact color.  I love it! (Photos to follow soon!) I love the large size Pashli as well. It reminds me of my cobalt blue Celine mini luggage bag which I adore! You can see photos of it HERE.  (Notice a trend with the cobalt blue color?)

What do you think of the color? Do you have a current favorite color you are rocking? Tell me in the comments!
