What a great tote!

What a great tote!
Love the message.
Earlier this week I posted about the Stitch Fix delivery that I received last weekend, which contained some pieces for fall.
I’m in a transition period right now (a lot more about this later), so I haven’t been expanding my wardrobe lately at the usual frenetic pace.
However, Chelsea boots were #1 on my Just Want Now list for Fall ’16.
After *a lot* of browsing, I ordered this Treasure and Bond pair from Nordstrom.
At $119, these are extremely well-priced for boots. The quality is excellent and they are comfortable from the get-go. I wore them to work last week with tights and a striped dress. I love how Chelsea boots can be dressed up or down, look great with jeans or a tights/skirt combo, and are all-day walkable. Their versatility makes them standouts for travel, especially when packing space is tight and you want to limit shoes.
And of course I found a striped shirt from Splendid that I loved and had to make mine:
How cute are those buttons up the back? This is also supremely versatile and perfect for a travel capsule wardrobe.
Y-necklaces are not new and are probably even trending out, but I recently saw someone wearing one and still liked how it looked. Again, much looking, but I finally settled on this Kendra Scott number:
These aren’t new to my wardrobe (I’ve had them for at least a year), but I also just put these M.M. LaFleur Foster pants into heightened rotation:
One great perk for these pants: they have internal buttons inside the bottom so you can adjust the length from cropped to full. Seriously, how cool is that? This also makes them the perfect pair of pants for travel, because you can mix them up.
Did I mention that they also look great with striped tops, Y-necklaces and Chelsea boots?
Fair Isle patterns really aren’t my thing.
They just harken memories of bad 1980s sweaters like these:
And yet … they’re suddenly everywhere.
Over the weekend, I saw a cute outfit in a magazine pairing a Fair Isle sweater with an icy blue skirt. Specifically, this Fair Isle sweater from Old Navy:
This rings in at less than $40.
And then I opened up the latest Boden catalog to see this:
I like the neon pink color pop.
Here’s another option from J. Crew Factory:
If you’re not ready to commit to the trend, these accessories are a start:
Are you wearing Fair Isle this fall?
Yesterday I posted this cute Splendid bag, currently on sale for 25% off:
However, if the sale price of $96 still is too steep, consider this great selection of bags from Target. All of these are also on sale – 30% off! – and none is more than $40 even without the discount.
There are so many great sales going on this weekend.
And of course, since I need absolutely nothing, I must resist. Must. Resist.
Trixie (6), however, could use a few things for summer. After seeing a few outfits exposing a lot of her midriff due to a winter growth spurt, I realized it’s high time to buy some new (longer) shirts.
The Gap is having a great sale this weekend, 40% off regular price styles with code SUMMER. I’m going to order her a few of these everyday dresses, which I know will get a lot of rotation this summer.
Athleta is also running a spend more/save more deal: $25 off $150, $50 off $250 and $150 off $500 with code HEATINGUP.
This one has my name all over it: Splendid has 25% off everything with code PACKSPEND25.
Why not consider this Splendid tote bag?
And you have to act on it today, but Henri Bendel is offering 25% off all jewelry and hair accessories.
Happy Holiday shopping! Bring on summer!
This Splendid button down is unbelievably soft and exactly what I want to wear right now.
The buttons have pink stitching, which just makes it all that much more adorable.
Tiny zebras seem to be having a moment.
Not zebra print. Zebras.
Here’s a close up of the print:
Tiny, adorable zebras.
The store was showing this with a long black cardigan. I think it would also look great with a red belt and shoes.
Splendid also did zebras on a tee:
