There are some fall staples that have been on my wishlist for a while: A classic trenchcoat, the perfect pair of distressed jeans and leopard print heels.

Let’s start with the jeans – it seems like I’ve been searching for the perfect distressed pair forever. I’ve tried and decided against MANY styles – some were too baggy, others were too raggedy or came in an unflattering light wash. This pair was ordered on impulse from GAP during their 30% off promo – I was SO excited to find that they fit perfectly and were distressed enough without looking ready for the trash can. (My order form has them listed as: 1969 Destructed Real Straight Jeans, however the current ones on the website look slightly different from mine. With the sale + promo I paid around $35).

These leopard pumps are one of the reasons I’m SO happy Target is now in Canada. They are so comfortable and chic – yet they cost less than $30 – what a bargain for such a classic item!

I’m not as certain about this trench coat as I am about the jeans and pumps. Perhaps because it is a pricier piece (though I purchased mine when BR had a 40% promo code). The color seems prettier in the website picture than in person. Also – while the flare reminds me of Kate Middleton’s Burberry trench, it makes the coat more trendy than classic.

UPDATE: Quick pic showing 2 ways of wearing the trench: buttoned up and with the lapels open.
What are your fall staples? Do you think I should keep the Banana Republic Trench?
