The Quintessential Fall Duster

Lately, I’ve been crushing on New York & Company. The prices are unbeatable and everything is so on-trend! My favorite collection, especially, is the Eva Mendes Collection. I mean, first of all… it’s Eva Mendes. If I can wear anything that would somehow connect me to Ryan Gosling, I will do it. Haha! Also, everything is so fun and classic. I especially love this sweater coat and it’s only $90! It looks like a million bucks. I wish it got colder in Miami but this is perfect for those of you in cooler temps. I also ordered this top in tea leaf green and am obsessed! It’s perfect for dressing up or down and it’s also a great work shirt. Not to mention, it’s on sale!

But, today I’m wearing my FAVORITE item and the one piece in my closet I know I’ll be wearing throughout all of fall and winter. I am the pickiest person when it comes to sweaters and cardigans, but this one is SO comfortable. It also comes in black, but I especially loved the winter white. You can wear it over a dress for work or church, with jeans (like I did) and you can either keep the belt on or remove it. I decided to take off the belt and wear it in a more casual way… since I usually dress pretty casually! This duster is seriously one fall item you need in your wardrobe. It’s cozy, classic and will go with everything.

And then, once the holidays come around, I will definitely be ordering this skirt for parties! I might even order this bag too to wear everyday.  It would look really cute with the duster! I love any kind of neutral combination, can you tell? Make sure to follow my on Instagram (@laurenashleypatao) to see how I style the olive green top and another item I picked up!

Thanks so much for stopping by. You can shop the entire New York and Company Eva Mendes Collection here.

    You seriously crack me UP. “If anything gets me closer to Ryan Gosling…” HAHA! So funny, and I love your writing. It’s very conversational and written like I’m chatting with you on snapchat or something, which I’m a big fan of. In terms of your outfit, it’s adorable and I just looove every piece of it. The bag is my favorite, but I love it all! You’re a total fashionista & a babe! xx Adaleta Avdic

    I love this fresh look! Winter white is so classic, I’m sure I’d love it in black too. This duster is so versatile to dress up or down and I love the booties too! Just perfect all the way around.

    This duster is perfect, and I’m loving the winter white! I would probably get the black too just because it looks like the perfect length for me!!
