Texture

September 18, 2011 in Anthro

I’ve been craving some texture in my wardrobe, such as chunky sweaters, lace and crochet. Thankfully, there are a ton of great options out there this season. I made a quick stop by anthro and picked up some lace and crochet to wear under cardigans this fall. I also grabbed a J. Crew cable sweater and the carrie sweater off Ebay, which should be coming any day now.

Skirt: Ann Taylor exposed zipper wool blend skirt (here); Pumps: Ann Taylor perfect exotic pump (here);
Necklace: pearls made by mom; Belt: Ann Taylor (similar)

Quick review on this AT skirt: it is so soft and feels like a great quality skirt. This is a 2p, the smallest size available. Its definitely too big and has to go back :( If you can find this one in your size, snatch it up!!

Camel Mini & Burgundy Sweater

September 15, 2011 in H+M

This color combination is beautiful, especially for fall. I just picked up this H&M wool blend mini and adore the versatile hue. How have I never owned a camel skirt before?? It will definitely be getting some good use this fall!! As always, when the weather cools down I break out my J. Crew sweaters. These are the warmest, most comfy sweaters I’ve found. Plus, J. Crew has the most beautiful colors, season after season. Where do you find great, comfy sweaters?

Under Construction

September 11, 2011 in Chanel

I used this beautiful day off to do some much-needed blog work. I learned and re-learned (because I forgot to save my template) some blog formatting. Its amazing how much better things look when they’re aligned (like the buttons on the sidebar and post pics!!). I even got outside to take some pics at a bridge I never knew existed… on the street I live on… one mile away. I don’t get out much. This week I’m doing night shifts from 6:30pm to ~8am, which means I’ll get to see the sun!! Granted, I’ll probably hate it then when I need to sleep. Just can’t win.

I also surprised myself by not shopping at all this weekend. I’m getting really behind on my September goal items, if its even possible to get “behind” on shopping. Perhaps if I get any J. Crew coupons I’ll suddenly be very on top of my shopping, lol. I’ve added more items to my list, too. Maybe having monthly shopping goals will be a regular occurrence! One could only hope ;)
