Textures and Patterns




Top: Loft, similar
Skirt: Banana Republic, similar, similar, cheaper option
Clutch: Clare V.
Booties: Fab'rik
Necklace: Boutique find
Earrings: Baublebar (here, here)

I hope your week is going well! I'm popping in for a quick hello as it has been a busy week at work trying to get ready for a big meeting this week.  

A leather skirt is one of those great fall basics that serves me year after year.  I updated my version this year with this pleated one from Banana Republic.  I've loved it ever since I first saw it in the new arrivals section there.  It is sold out, but I've linked to several similar skirts.  I can't wait to style it so many different ways, especially with a cozy sweater and tights!  

What are some of the fall basics that you always reach for?

Have a great day!

Floral Pencil Skirt

Jacket: Gap
Top: Target
Skirt: Fab'rik, similar
Shoes: Zara, similar
Earrings: Baublebar
Clutch: Old Navy
Necklace: Baublebar, similar
Bracelets: Baublebar (here, here), C. Wonder, old, similar

I hope you had a great weekend!!  It was an amazingly beautiful weekend here. 

A floral pencil skirt has been on my list for summer/fall ever since I saw this one on Piperlime.  Luckily, I found a great version at Fab'rik a few weeks ago.  I stalked waited patiently for another woman to put down the only one left in my size and promptly bought it.  I love it with just a simple t-shirt while it is still warm out, but I can see it transitioning into fall with booties and a chunkier knit given the skirt's darker color palette. 

Also, does anyone else think Old Navy has been killing it with some of their pieces recently?!  You know I loved the Old Navy bucket bags this summer, but this clutch is a great piece and a total steal!

Fall Wish List

Happy Friday!  What are you guys up to this weekend?  I'm giong to an early Halloween party so I have to pull together (or buy) a costume tonight.  Any suggestions??

As it has started to get colder, I've been pulling together my wish list for fall.  I'm excited for statement coats, cozy sweaters, and boots, which I think are the only real holes in my closet.  Holes is very loosely defined....

Have a great weekend!

I hope your week is going is well!  I know that I experiment with color, but black and white is a classic combo that I always come back to.  It is so clean and classic (and easy!).  I saw this jacket in a local boutique and initially walked by it but couldn't stop thinking about it.  Does that every happen to you?  Anyway, I obviously went back and have worn this jacket so many times since I picked it up a few weeks ago.  It is the perfect statement jacket!

Also, don't forget that Baublebar, one of my favorite stores, is doing 25% off until midnight Thursday with the code Friends25!  I've already got my eyes on a few pieces to update my collection (here, here, here)!

Shopbop Sale Picks (most under $250!)

25% off with code FAMILY25

Row 1: 1/2/3/4/5/6
Row 2: 1/2/3/4/5
Row 3: 1/2/3/4/5/6

I hope your week is going well!  I had to pop in for a special post this week to let you know about one of the best sales of the year, the Shopbop sale!  This year it is even better as it is 25% off your entire purchase with no spending thresholds to hit.  I normally find Shopbop a little expensive so I usually use this sale as a chance to splurge on a pair of shoes (I got this pair last year).  Shocking, I know.  

Anyway, I thought I would share a few items that I'm considering.  Only two items above are over $250, as I'm trying not to blow the budget before all of the great holiday sales start.  If I was going to though, it would totally be on this pair of shoes!

Use code FAMILY25 for 25% off your purchase.  The sale starts today and runs through October 16th and 11:59PT.

Happy shopping!!  What are you guys considering from the sale?

Purse: Marc Jacobs, similar
Shoes: Rag & Bone

Bracelets: Baublebar (here, similar, similar)
Hat: Old Navy, sold out

I hope you had a great weekend!  I had a fabulous time in Denver at my friend's wedding.  She hosted her reception at an amazing restaurant, Beast + Bottle, that I highly recommend if you are ever in Denver!

It took me a while to jump on the leggings trend, but now I wish I'd bought a pair sooner.  I'm a sucker for anything leather or leather-like, so when I saw this top at Fab'rik, I knew I had to have it.  It runs small as I'm wearing a large, but I love the leather and zipper detailing which are a fun twist on a basic, black top.

Have a great day!
