Happy #TryOnConfidential Friday, my friends! Last week on my IG Stories, I put up a poll and asked if you wanted to see coats and jackets or sports bras. With close to 2,000 votes, it was nearly a 50/50 split. Since we’re still in the thick of winter, I figured I’d do coats first! But don’t worry, sports bras will be soon!

If we’re being honest, I have WAY too many coats. Living in New York, one must be prepared for all seasons. I understand not everyone will need a winter coat but this list mentions my top 6 must have pieces of outerwear for all seasons. Stay tuned to my stories to see the full break down. Here’s my list of must haves:

1. Polished Wool Coat

2. Functional + Packable Winter Coat

3. The Trench Coat

4. Moto Jackets: Faux Leather + Suede

5. Denim Jackets: Blue + White

6. Blazers

Bonus: Statement Coats

my favorite places to shop coats + jackets:

abercrombie - asos - boden - nordstrom - nordstrom rack - old navy - rent the runway (use CARALYNM100 for $100 off your first two months of Unlimited)

What did you think about this coat and jacket round up? Would love to hear your thoughts! Thanks for visiting me here at CaralynMirand.com, feel free to reach out anytime! xx

This week on my stories, you voted that you’d rather see fall basics under $50 rather than coats and jackets. I am so glad that I asked because I was preparing to do only outerwear! You all help me so much, I so appreciate all of your feedback. At the end of the day, I want to bring you things that you actually WANT to see so keep the comments coming!

This week, I challenged myself to find 50 items under $50 that are perfect for transitioning through seasons. I ended up finding some of my favorite pieces that I’m wearing (above $50) in under $50 dupes! I’ve also sprinkled in some coats + jackets under $50 in here. I will be showcasing about ten+ of these items on my IG story, so be sure to tune into that! Can’t wait to hear what you find.

Friday Favorites: Surviving Winter In Style

It's been a busy week of work and travel over here, which is why I haven't been as active this week online! But that's alright, real life happens and we gotta roll with it. I wanted to round up my favorite looks that have been helping me survive this awfully cold winter we're having and some looks I'm really looking forward to wearing in the spring. I'll be showcasing a few of these items on my Instagram story today, so be sure to check that out! Not sure if you've had a chance to check out my new Highlights on my profile, but I've saved a number of my most popular stories on there. Here are a few brands that I've been loving lately and are keeping me on point (does anyone say 'on point' anymore?) throughout these winter months:
As always, the images and font in bold are clickable- which means you can shop directly from this post! 

Boden: Coats

Okay, I'll admit it. My MOM told me about Boden and it's safe to say I'm OBSESSED! She wore a coat over to my house one day and I tried to steal it... They're a UK based company founded on the principle of stylish clothes that look great and never stint on quality. I typically don't splurge on items like this but I was incredibly impressed with their quality and 365 day return policy... and they've been having a serious sale, items are 40-70% off! So I just had to try them out and I've been blown away with what I got! I've ordered quite a few things and I am in love, I consider these items investment pieces- knowing that I will have them for a long time. For reference, I think they run pretty TTS (true to size) I've been ordering my usual 14 and everything has fit perfectly! 

Eliza J: Spring Dresses

Eliza J is my GIRRRRRL! I'm not sure if she actually exists, but I am seriously in LOVE with this brand. You've seen me in their dresses quite a few times now, I cannot get enough! I also love how on trend and current they are. Another reason why I love the brand is because they are size inclusive, they are always offering styles from sizes 0 to 24! Here are a few dresses that I just got and cannot wait to wear! A few of them are on sale so swipe them up before they're gone!

Bauble Bar: Earrings

I think my Bauble Bar earrings have become my signature thing. You know what's the funny part? I love to throw on a pair of fun BB earrings out of pure laziness because I'm not very good at accessorizing so it's just an easy way to pump up any look! I get asked all of the time where my earrings are from and 99.9% of the time, they're from Bauble Bar! These are a few pairs that I splurged on lately that I am loving! They're having a major sale this weekend, including an extra 15% off of sale so if you're looking for a refresh in your jewelry game, be sure to check them out! 

CO2 Lift Facial

A few weekends ago, I did a full Instagram story about my CO2 Lift mask experience. In case you missed it, I saved it as a highlight on my profile titled "CO2 Lift." They agreed to let me do a monthly review of their famous mask, which is INCREDIBLE by the way. This weekend only, they're offering $20 OFF if you use the code "CARALYN20" - which NEVER happens (it's usually only $10!) so if you've been thinking about trying it out, now is the time!  

As a member of their auto-ship "Glowing Skin" programevery month you will enjoy the comfort of having your CO2Lift delivered straight to your door for just $59.95.  That’s 30% off their regular price for their most devoted customers!

If that wasn’t enough, as a gift, they will send you a “starter pack” which includes an additional CO2Lift treatment and a bottle of our hyaluronic serum. That’s two CO2Lift masks and one bottle of hyaluronic serum for $95.00! ($229.95 worth of product)
Then for $59.95 per month, a single pack of CO2Lift will be delivered straight to your door.

Their single pack with one mask is usually $85.00 so at $59.95 is a real savings! But if you just want to try it, the $20.00 off would make the starter pack $75.00 for 2 masks and a hyaluronic serum!


I hope you enjoyed what I've been loving lately, would love to hear in the comments which items you're most interested in trying! Wishing you a fabulous weekend and happy shopping! Many of these sales end soon so be sure to check them out.
