Evedon rain boots // Quilted sherpa hat (faux fur! navy quilting! pink ribbon!)
Moredale jacket (those elbow patches!) // Glossy rain boots
Welland rain boots // Evedon rain boots (in my favorite color combo no less...)

If there's one thing a hurricane and a nor'easter within days of one another tells me, it's that it's time to seriously step up my outerwear options. I was thrilled to learn about Joules, an online retailer with gorgeous boots, jackets, and other winter must-haves. I'm smitten with their classic designs and darling details like the grosgrain ribbon closure on the hat and boots above. Seriously have you seen a cuter pair of rain boots in your life? That last pair belongs in my closet!


You've probably noticed by now that I absolutely live in jeans. I like them in a dark blue wash with a little stretch — and I preferred skinny jeans right up until the moment I unwrapped this flared pair from James Jeans. I know denim shopping isn't usually the most enjoyable experience but I'm not exaggerating when I say these jeans are a total game-changer. They're comfy, soft, and the fit is so flattering that I can't believe I went so long thinking petite girls can't wear flared jeans. I'm a total convert! And even better news? James Jeans is offering all Design Darling readers 25% off their purchase with code JJ004 at checkout. What on earth are you waiting for? Check out the new collection and tell me which pair you can't live without!


Then come back and shop yesterday's new arrivals because 15% of this week's sales will be donated to Red Cross relief efforts in areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Devon Baer Designs, K. Slademade, and Society Social are all donating a portion of their sales as well. Shop for a good cause or donate here if you're able!
