WISH LIST WEDNESDAY - SWEATER WEATHER

What better way to start the day than a round up of some of my favorite sweaters that are currently on the shelves? During the cooler months I love nothing more than the cozy feeling a sweater offers. And I certainly don't discriminate when it comes to my sweater selection - oversized and chunky, more fitted and sleek, you name it, I just can't seem to ever get my fill. Imagine this sweater (in cream) with these coated denim pants or this cropped sweater with an adorable A-line skirt (similar to my outfit here)....are you sold on sweaters yet?! Maybe it stems from the fact that I am perpetually cold, but once September rolls around it is difficult to find me in anything else! Do you all have a favorite item for this time of year?

BOMBER JACKET

Although I am definitely gearing up for Fall, I have been enjoying wearing some light layers (such as this bomber jacket) with shorts while the weather permits. This past weekend we were down in Stone Harbor, New Jersey for a wedding. On Sunday, the day of the wedding, the sun was shining and it was a beautiful day to walk around this quaint beach town. After grabbing breakfast at my favorite spot, Uncle Bill's Pancake House, we decided to take a walk and happened to stumble upon the Stone Harbor Yacht Club, where we snapped these pictures. It was a little cooler out, so I took the opportunity to pull this silk bomber jacket out of my closet, and paired it with my favorite distressed denim shorts and Jack Purcell sneaks. I always love visiting the shore off season - it gives me a chance to take in the scenery, and enjoy the restaurants and shops without the usual summer crowd! Do you all have a favorite summer destination you like to visit during the off season?

TWEED MIDI SKIRT

A deep pleated, tweed midi skirt is an essential for fall. The fabric down to the silhouette provides you with that working girl takes on happy hour, polished chic look. This skirt is from Wolf & Badger - if you are not familiar with the website, definitely check it out for unique designer pieces (they feature mostly independent fashion, jewelry, and other  accessories). I actually paired this with a peplum top (tucked in so you can't see the peplum), and I went with my favorite gold link necklace to tie in the gold heel detail on the heels. These new beauties from heels.com are definitely a contender for my new favorite heel. I love how they are closed toe to transition into fall, yet have cut out details as well. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

WEEKEND SALES

Happy Saturday, everybody! I am taking full advantage of staying cozy in my pajamas and sipping coffee from the couch...after all that's what weekend mornings are for! Shortly, I will be heading to a wedding down the Jersey shore, but I first wanted to share some sales going on (in case you are like me and enjoy browsing the web for some fashion finds while sipping that coffee!)

FALL FASHION

A great pair of jeans, booties, and lots of layers are the first thing that come to mind when I think about fall fashion. Nothing excites me more then bundling up with a cozy knit, eating and drinking anything pumpkin flavored, and admiring the foliage (ok, maybe I am getting ahead of myself since today was 88 degrees, but it is September after all!) For me, the fall is a time where everything around us slows down, and the city fills back up with everyone who escaped the city heat for the beach this summer.

Turning to more important things (i.e. fashion), last weekend while walking around SoHo my fiancĂ© and I stumbled across Bonobo's showroom (where you can try on clothes, but your items are shipped to you and not available to take home that day), where he ended up spending a great deal of time and a greater deal of money. The clothing is incredibly well made, fit him like a glove and you can tell it will definitely withstand time. While chatting with the sales associate, she informed me that they recently launched a women's line, AYR, which stands for "all year round." Every piece is more polished than the last. I decided to try out a pair of their jeans and fell in love. The fabric moves when you move, is flattering in all the right places and super comfortable for all day wear. I hate when jeans stretch out throughout the day, and I did not experience that at all with this pair. I look forward to continuing to add other AYR pieces to my wardrobe and thrilled to discover a new brand of denim that I love.
