Blue/Berry Brights


Short sleeve featherweight cashmere cardigan – $178, patent leather belt, $36.50, and peep toe heels, $198 – J. Crew. Denim blouse, $98 – Anthropologie. Boyfriend jean, and Ikat clutch – Talbots. Silk/wool scarf – Intermix Online, $195.

I’m not really sure how good I am at the whole creating an outfit thing but I’m giving it another try today. I started out going for a completely different look and then I found that scarf… then the new J. Crew catalog with it’s scintillating selection of vibrantly hued cashmere got thrown in the mix. Anyway, I’d wear it… and isn’t that the important thing?

Have a happy Wednesday everyone! I’ll catch you tomorrow!

Winter Jewels


So… winter is upon us. Literally! The freak snowstorm in the Northeast over the weekend is a sure indicator of the onset of winter. Here in Charlotte we certainly felt the effects of the severe weather our northern cousins faced when our overnight temperatures dipped into the 30’s and 40’s.

For a lot of people, once the beauty of fall color is over, the late fall and winter can be a hard time to get through. Sometimes the simple bare majesty of the winter world is hard to appreciate… that’s why I love when winter fashion eschews muted, earthy tones for vibrant brights like the ones Talbots is offering currently.

Their line of bold jewel tones mixed with black in simple, classic shapes is a sure way to see any woman happily through the bleak months of winter. There are really a nice range of pieces from blingy earrings to full length wool coats to help you spice up your wardrobe. I’ve got my eye on the cropped Duchesse satin pants and the double faced wool skirt and jacket. But there is a little bit of something for everyone to add a little dash of brightness to the oncoming winter.

Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope you have a fun filled Monday, whether you celebrate or not!
