J.Crew Plaid Trench & Gucci Pumps

I was so excited for this J.Crew trench to come in after seeing it in the J.Crew fall '16 look book last year. It is very light weight and has the feel of a windbreaker. What are some fall J.Crew items you are waiting for?

Thank you for stopping by!

J.Crew Drake's Collection and Mixing Prints

J.Crew's fall collection is starting to trickle in and I am so excited about some of the new colors and textures. I think the new Drake collection has some fun, unique prints that I can't wait to filter into my fall wardrobe. 

(on the side table is a picture of my mother when she was a senior in high school, one of the
very few pictures I have of her)

While we were hanging out in the office, I couldn't stop playing with the Peacock feathers..the colors matched my skirt 
and blouse perfectly.
(kind of a creepy picture, I know..)
My watch is a vintage piece from my mother's collection

Why the sweatshirt?
I needed something to tone down the sequins on the skirt in my attempt to make 
the skirt a little more casual for the day. 

A few other favorites I managed to snag before they sold out!

So, what are your thoughts on daytime pajama dressing? 
If your a fan, what would you pair your pj's with?

If you think my pairings are a bit crazy, sure..they probably are, but earlier this week, a girl my age, someone I went to high school with, was just diagnosed with cancer. She recently shaved her head and now holds her head up proud. My mother was young when she was diagnosed with cancer and she maintained her confidence till the very end and never cared what anyone thought of her or how silly her outfit may have seemed, so with that in mind, why does it take cancer for some women to find their courage?

Pops of Color

Vintage straw hat with a new striped jumper from J.Crew paired with an oldie Rebecca Minkoff bag. 

An oldie tote from J.Crew and a vintage silk shawl that I adore. Someone might ask, "Where would you wear that to?" My response, "Where wouldn't I?"

My new Gucci Marmont pumps which I seem to be collecting lately in all different colors, and this adorable little bag, the perfect vintage pink/purple. Love it!

If you have been reading my blog or following me on IG, then you know how much I love vintage finds. Here are some of my recent finds, some new, some old and some vintage. What do you think?

Anthropologie Nieves Lavi Floral Maxi Dress

This is one of my favorite places to sit and sip a drink and chit-chat. This dress is an oldie from Anthropologie, but is still one of my favorites. This iron bench I am sitting on, was my mothers. People keep telling me I should re-paint it, but for some reason I just can't bring myself to do it. I just want to leave it the way she left it.

Gucci, J.Crew, Miu Miu, Clare V.

Today i'm wearing an off the shoulder top, (same as everyone else) and I felt a little bare, so I decided to wear one of my favorite scarfs, but went for a big bow look in place of any earrings or necklaces.  In truth, when it is hot outside, I have a hard time wearing too much jewelry, if any at all. 
I was photo bombed today by our dog Milo.  He just had a bath so I enjoyed the moment since he usually smells of skunk..yes he keeps getting sprayed. 
If you have been considering buying some flatform shoes, such as these espadrilles, they are worth the splurge. They do however, run narrow at the toe and are heavy. 
Thank you for reading!

D.I.Y Loeffler Randall, Kayu Straw Tote and J.Crew

I really love these neutral lace up heels by Loeffler Randal, but today I wanted a little bit more color in my step so I added some tassels that I picked up at the craft store. What do you think?

Thank you for reading!
