NINE / FAUX FUR COATS FOR A COZY FALL
faux-fur-jackets.png

after a few gross days of humid, sticky weather, we're finally seeing fall-like temperatures here in Boston. and it's about time! i can't wait to start wearing boots, sweaters, and coats (my favorite). almost every year i'll treat myself to a new coat for the season -- since i wear a jacket every day for so many months, i like having a few options to brighten my mood and my mostly all-black winter uniform. this year i'm on the hunt for a cozy faux fur coat to add to the collection. there are so many options it's so hard to pick: do i go with something classic like stripes or leopard? or do i take the plunge and go for something over-the-top?

shop my favorite fuzzy coats from around the interwebs below!

 
 
 

TEN / PRINTED STRAW BAGS

straw bags are all the rage this summer, and i'm fully embracing it. in fact, a straw bag is the perfect finishing touch to a casual summer dress, and is every beach goer's must-have accessory. these natural beauties have been on my wish list for the past few months, and i think i'm close to finding my perfect match. since there are so many great options out there, i wanted to share ten of my favorites -- from stripes, to fringe, and polka dots, i kind of want them all:

SHOP / BEST OF ANTHROPOLOGIE'S NEW ARRIVALS

i have been shopping too. much. lately. i think it's the promise of spring, or because i'm ready to go on a vacation -- either way, i've been window-shopping like it's my job. thankfully, my wish list is far longer than the list of items that i actually end up buying and keeping (phew!). always scheming my next purchase, i suppose.

speaking of: Anthropologie has so many great things right now, that it was worth a blog post. i'm talking about statement earrings, embroidered prints, a jumpsuit i need and some really good shoes -- shop what i'm eyeballing below, and let me know your favorites!

a gal's closet needs a great denim jacket. i love the white leopard embroidery on this option.

lots of embroidered details in Anthro's new arrivals, including this blouse with red embroidery.

raw hemmed jeans look extra cool with a cutout detail. 

striped pants for beach days.

these are pure magic: satin princess sandals with a floral gemstone.

hello lovely people! i'm excited to get back in the groove of things on here! it's been a crazy couple of weeks in real life, and i feel like i've been balancing a lot. between a never-ending to-do list at work, i am also putting the finishing touches on a bathroom renovation -- before and after shots coming your way very soon! -- as well as attempting to get back into instagramming more regularly (my last post was in July, yikes!). does anyone else feel a little overwhelmed this September?

to ease back into blogging, i figured i'd start with a wish list of blush pink goodies. even though i haven't been blogging or taking many photos, i've been pinning and window shopping like a champ (follow me on pinterest here!). it's no secret that blush is 2016's darling color of choice, and i am completely smitten. especially when it is paired with bright magenta, cream and gold in patterns like stripes, stars, hand prints and muted florals. there's a little bit of everything on this list -- home, wear, and even a cute leash for your pup.

LOVING LOEFFLER / ACCESSORIES FOR FALL

Loeffler Randall is one of those designers that i religiously follow. in fact, they may be my favorite accessory designer to date. everything is perfectly curated -- from their social, newsletters and website, to the ridiculously stylish designer herself, Jessie Randall. not to mention their shoes, bags, and patterns! i covet pretty much all of Loeffler Randall's world. 

with that said, it's always a treat to see what Loeffler Randall has up their sleeves when a new collection is launched. LR has a fresh, effortless approach, and their fall/winter collection for 2016 does not disappoint:

the secret sauce behind their success is so simple: design for what they would want to see in their closets. brilliant right? this fall, that means fluffy rainbow fur, ankle straps, snakeskin, bold red, and rich floral embroidery.

this season was inspired by natural elements and earthy neutral colors, accented by pops of red, orange, and powder blue. The collection has a luxe-bohemian vibe to it, with suede, fringe, and floral embroidery.

it's always fun to see the design process behind a collection, and LR does it so well -- giving their customers a transparent sneak peek into what exactly caught their eye though these cute handwritten mood boards.

these bright red mid-heels with ankle straps are on my wish list. a practical stunner (especially for navigating the uneven cobblestone streets right outside my office) they are an updated version of last year's it-shoe.

i must confess that am not a huge fan of wearing fur, but i do appreciate the beauty of these fluffy accessories: polka dots in primary colors and bags in amorphous shapes.

between the bright colors, lady-like florals, and bold reds, is the perfect neutral snakeskin. i'm officially predicting that snakeskin will make a comeback this fall. i've spotted this animal print in several collections, including JCrew's RTW Fall. a nice alternative to leopard!

new textures — fur, horsehair, suede, and python — makes for a sophisticated yet cozy look.
