I admit that I’m itching to buy and wear tank tops, dresses and sandals ASAP. But the more reasonable and cost efficient thing may actually be to “think backwards” – stores are already stocking shelves with floral prints and mini skirts, which means they need to make room and get rid of their winter wear. Buying a coat now, at the end of the season, may save you big next year. Likewise, you’ll definitely save by buying a bathing suit in October or November.
I loveeee Burberry. Love it. Today I watched the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2011 show during London Fashion Week and it was filled with amazing, sculptural coats in bright colors. These are some of my favorites:
The coats are available February 27th. The ones above range from $2,500 to $5,000. I will cherish the day I buy a Burberry trench, but today, these options seem (slightly – ha!) more affordable:
I love Jennifer Aniston. I am on Team Aniston. I love her easy going style, her all American looks, her adorable style! To me, she seems like generally, she would be a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl and then when she needs to she can really glam it up! This look, which she wore flying into LAX, can easily be a day-to-night look with a few little tweaks!

This look, much like Jessica Alba’s, starts with a simple, comfortable, boyfriend jean.
Riley Boyfriend Jeans
I repeat my love for these Lucky Brand Jeans which are a great deal at Zappos.com! Normally $149, they are only $79.50 at Zappos.com. They are one of the most comfortable pair of jeans I own. I wear them all the time, in fact, I’ll be wearing them tomorrow while traveling!
Old Navy Womens Drew The Weekend Jeans, $14.97
The next part of this look is the stripped top.
Michael Stars Pigment Dye Riviera Stripe Boat Neck, $68.00
Gap Striped supersoft long-sleeved T for $19.50
Jennifer then tops this with a great jacket. Not going to lie, this would be a great splurge:
The most important things in this look are the accessories. Jennifer has a great hat, scarf and belt. Not even going to lie, I have been kind of obsessed with fedoras lately. I bought my first one and can’t wait to get more! My fiancee is even planning on getting one for our reception!

Vans – Hard Headed Fedora, $28.00
Satin Bow Fedora, $19.95
Jennifer Aniston is carrying a Love Quotes scarf, other stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Hillary Duff, Tara Reid, and Lauren Conrad also have been known to wear these scarfs. They come in many beautiful colors and with this outfit, you could wear almost any color! And I have found a deal for you ladies!!

Ok, yell at me all you want, but you can wear a brown belt with a primarily black outfit. Black and brown are neutrals thus can be paired together. Here are some great belt options.
Ann Taylor Loft Women’s Brown Wide Distressed Belt, $39.50
Old Navy Womens Brown Basic Leather Belt, $16.50
Now, to take this look from day to night, I would only change my shoes. While you can’t see what Jennifer Aniston is wearing in this photo, a great pair of flats for running errands during the day, and a killer pair of heels to dance the night away and break some hearts would be what I would do!
Nine West – Lorita, $68.95
Oh my gosh!! How great would these go with the purple fedora! I didn’t even plan that!
Rocket Dog – Mayhem, $44.95 $40.46
And then to make the switch to night:
Rocket Dog – Orient, $52.00
Gabriella Rocha – Averie, $49.95
Not Rated – Cover Look, 44.95 $40.46
Not even going to lie, I’m in love with these polka dot shoes!!
