Shopping: Your Fall Coat Collection

Yesterday it was 80 degrees here. Here is not Florida so this is really cramping my fall style. It’s not cramping my fall shopping style though.

As soon as the clock strikes November 1 (no shopping in October), I’m hitting purchase on a new coat. I like to usher one oldie out and welcome a fresh new face (and yes, by face I mean a garment of clothing) each season and this year I’ve whittled down my options.

I keep returning to these three styles for this year’s addition: pale pink, plaid and all-weather parkas. Obviously I’m looking for something versatile (gotta wear it over all the things) and functional (nothing too tight, too weird, too bulky).

I’ve narrowed down my options and now it’s just a waiting game. The good news is that a lot of these options are crazy affordable (wanted to include this pretty from Old Navy but the image wouldn’t load. just check it out cause it is crazy cute and super affordable) and will last way past this winter.

Shopping: Shopbop Friends & Family

Just because I’ve given up shopping for October doesn’t mean you have to. Shopbop is having their semi-annual Friends & Family sale which is the best time to bite the bullet on investment pieces you’ve been thinking about but couldn’t quite justify. I’ve rounded up some of my favorites as an exercise in “pretend” shopping.

Don’t worry though, I’m keeping it real and staying clear of seriously pricey duds. Everything below is under $200 (except a couple pairs of jeans – you wear those all the time so you can splurge) + there are no one-and-done items. I looked for stuff that you can wear the heck out of for more than just one season.

The sale ends on the 16th at midnight… happy shopping!

Shopping: Throwing Shade

Is it bad that I am just now recovering from the long weekend? Probably.

I’m pretty sure I need a weekend to recover from this past weekend. Thankfully it’s Wednesday. Mostly I want to throw on a pair of sunglasses that make me invisible just like Julian’s in Big Daddy. Instead I’ll have to settle for a pair that just keep the world safe from my tired eyes.

Honestly though, I am on the hunt for a new pair (my current pair have a big ‘ole scratch right in the middle. boo) and am torn between going with something more classic and something a little more playful (especially after sporting these). I don’t mind spending a little more on sunglasses since you wear them ALL. THE. TIME. But I also gotta LOVE them so I don’t accidentally leave them somewhere and mostly so I protect them with my life (that still doesn’t save them from my propensity for losing damn near everything). Seriously, forget the ‘find my phone’ feature, can someone create some sort of ‘find my sunglasses’ app? I need that.
