It’s safe to say that this coat is one of my favorite purchases of 2016. I absolutely love the color of it and it’s actually a really warm coat! I want it in another color! I also love that the fur on the hood is removable in case you’re not into that! J.Crew has sales often so be on the lookout so you can snag this beauty on sale!

STREET LEVEL REVERSIBLE BAG

I seriously love this bag because it’s like 2 bags in 1! I love the fact that it’s reversible and that it’s under $50! This would also make a great gift for someone!

You guys, if you haven’t gotten your hands on these boots yet, you need to now! They are SO comfortable and on sale for under $90!! I get compliments on these boots every time I wear them!

PINK ADIDAS GAZELLE SNEAKERS

When I saw these pink sneakers, I knew I had to have them! And boy am I glad that I got them! I have worn them so many times since I got them this Fall. They are under $90 and SO cute. If you do get a pair of Adidas sneakers, size down HALF A SIZE because they run big! I originally got an 8 (my normal size) and had to exchange them for a 7.5! I also just got these sneakers and they’re ALREADY a favorite!

DANIEL WELLINGTON WATCH

2016 FAVORITES PART 2

To be honest before 2016 I had never even heard of Daniel Wellington and I am SO glad that I now know what great watches they sell! I have this one and this one and I love them both! You can use the code “LAURENROSE15” and get 15% off your own Daniel Wellington watch!

4. Getting my Kittens: So after my sister got married she moved to New Jersey (booooo!) and took her kitties with her!! My mom and I (and even my dad, too!) were SO sad to see them go so we all decided we needed to get two more kittens. We went to PAWS in Norwalk and adopted two cuties and named them Max and Ruby! Here they are:
