Blanket Cape

21 November 2014

 You might remember seeing this cape in last week's Fall essential round up with a few other awesome finds that I just picked up. Truth be told, I have to say this piece has quickly become my favorite, one because well, it's a cape so there's that and two, it's not plaid. While I love a good plaid piece, I've found my self stocking up on too much tartan, so outside the box I go with this southwest {esque} blanket cape, which turns out to go with just about everything including my new booties.

Better in Black

20 November 2014

Most days are spent commuting to different parts of the city on shopping excursions, event pop ins, research and now, school pick ups. For most of which, comfort is key, but then again, when isn't it? One of my easy no fail pairings {that works all day, everyday} is my leather jacket, you know, the one you've seen practically non-stop since I acquired it last year, and my cozy, almost worn through the knees black skinnies. Sure, I mix it up with the layers and the shoes but I'm not one to resist the temptation of an all black ensemble. This one seemed all too perfect with the addition of my new booties, that were made even better because they can be worn a couple of ways.

50 Fall Hats Under $50

19 November 2014

I think it's safe to say that I have a healthy obsession with hats, especially when it comes to sporting them during the fall and winter months {we know I'm an equal hat opportunist year round}. But, let's be real, once the snow starts falling there is little to zero effort going into my hair. You know you're with me. Lucky for us they've become somewhat of an essential in Fall and Winter dressing. Whether you're giving your look a little bit more edge with a slouchy beanie or opting for a touch of bohemia with an oversized fedora, chances you're doing it, and in style. So, naturally with all must have accessories comes the need to stock up, and stock up we will and on a budget. Check out my favorite hat picks for Fall and Winter, and for under $50!

Stripes + Maxi

18 November 2014

While purging my 'skirt' drawer last week, I stumbled upon this beauty nestled into the back corner, which immediately reminded me how much I actually love wearing this floaty number.  Which means, I obviously had to wear it at least one more time before the temperatures got too crazy. {Which is pretty much right now.} The addition of the striped cropped top {that I've worn with practically everything this season} and the moto jacket made it the perfect pairing before stuffing it right on back into my drawer for the winter.

Coat Colorblocking

17 November 2014

Now that it's become apparent that I can no longer protest coats this season I've started stocking up on the new additions to help spice things up when the "Winter rut" comes along. Thankfully I've had quite a few options in the budget friendly department including this colorblocked number from Sears {they also have camel & black}. This one happens to be under $50! It was the perfect pop of color for topping over this black and white textured sweater and asymmetrical mini skirt.

This Week...

16 November 2014

After being down with the flu for a few weeks I finally started feeling better at the end of the week. Hopefully it stays out of my system for awhile because I was not loving the runny nose & coughing. Thankfully I had a few things to distract me while I was working from my bed, one was the bright & pretty floral macbook skin I just acquired from 9th & Elm. Now, my macbook has a little update {it's ancient} and there's a whole lotta color coming from my desk.
I also put one of my notecards from last month's PopSugar Must Have box to good use, overlooking my desk in a frame {find} from TJMAXX.
And while Thursday night was ridiculous on the weather front it was warm and toasty at Caldrea's Garden Party, the new Basil Blue Sage scent is heavenly. 
And no week is complete without a hop, skip and a jump over to Central Park to see the last of the leaves before Winter hits.
