If you don’t know already, you should know that I’m a denim freak. I don’t wear leggings as pants, I wear jeans. High-waisted jeans, cropped jeans, flared jeans, wide leg jeans.. just jeans. So when I see some of my favorite fits from Levi’s on major sale for $19.99 at T.J.Maxx, you know I’m scooping them all up. I’ll make room in my closet somehow..

The Look

My love for all things & Other Stories is no secret, but for fall especially, they're the best. Great sweaters and the perfect iteration of the "it" item of the season are what I look to them for the most. I wrote about this leopard skirt last week, and below is exactly how I want to wear it as the weather slowly cools down. Just add tights for colder nights or a dad sneaker for a more casual weekend look.

The Bag

To piggyback on my last post about natural bags.. this Steven Alan bag.. is everything! I saw it on Shopbop a few weeks ago but didn't pull the trigger. Then while browsing Nordstrom Rack over my Sunday morning coffee, there it was for 50% off. While I love the look of ata/rattan bags, they're just not practical for this commuting New Yorker. I love that this bag is trimmed in leather, making it a touch more wearable for every day. 

Also into this, this, and this for a summer bag update.

Straw

Last year, I was desperate to get my hands on a a round ata bag. Thanks to Bembien and a zillion bloggers going to Bali, it was the it bag. I even went so far as to track down a manufacturer in Bali, email (stalk) her, and place a small wholesale order for myself, friends, and to sell on Etsy. This year every major retailer has caught on and has their own version for the season. While I always prefer to have the original, some of these are just too cute to pass up. 

Straw, bamboo, wood.. you just can't go wrong with anything natural.

February

Getting dressed this time of year is hard. The weather fluctuates daily (remember when it was 75 last week?!) and I'm just plain sick of everything I've been wearing since November. Fortunately for me, a lot of retailers are not going full-on spring with their assortments and offering some wear-now pieces in go forward colors. I love the H&M sweater below because it doesn't look out of place for this time of year but it's a lot more fun than that grey sweater you've been wearing for the last 3 months. And those silver mules are a little glimmer of hope for the warmer weather ahead. It's coming!
