I fell in love with Danish fashion designer, Malene Birger when I purchased this By Malene Birger coat in early fall, so checking out her Autumn/Winter 2014 show online during Copenhagen Fashion Week was an absolute must. Looking back, early fall was probably just a crush since after seeing this new collection, I can now say with serious conviction it’s a full on obsession. Like the real deal kind. I have never witnessed styling as in sync with my personal taste, so much so that I feel like Malene and I could have collaborated together in a past life. One look after the next was/is brilliant and I’d wear entire head-to-toe ensembles, changing nada! Relaxed, edgy, hints of boho, effortless layering, impeccable details, embellishment in just the right places and all completely wearable! It’s what I like to describe as my BP (best possible). Consider me over the moon inspired, which I really needed as of late! Here’s a snapshot of some favorites, but check out the entire show here. And of course, happy Monday! xx jenny

Remember this post when I told you about this coat? Well – it came, but quickly so it went. After arriving by way of London via farfetch.com, they accidentally had sent the wrong size! It was a disappointing moment in the Greenstein-Weisberger household since it had traveled across the Atlantic and was unavailable in the States. While waiting to exchange it for the right size and mulling over if I should just return it all together, I happened upon this. Cheaper than the Malene Birger and similar in silhouette, it felt like a sign to let the other one go. So I did, and had a few extra bucks in my pocket, to boot. Here is the coat from Zara that I swapped it for, paired with the boyfriend jeans I wear endlessly and topped off with some bling.
