Out with Sandy, in with Athena. Though we have no real sticking snowfall, it’s clear winter has arrived. It’s a bit early if you ask me, but I’m actually looking forward to the colder weather and holiday season. I’ve spent a lot of time indoors these days — what with one crazy storm after another — and have spent much of it getting ideas for Christmas gifts and shopping for winter staples. These are few of the items sitting in my own online shopping bags just waiting to make a home in my closet.
I LOVE the bright, spring-like colors on this thick sweater. We’re spending Christmas in freezing cold Michigan and I’m thinking this could be just the thing to get me through.
I’ve lamented many times about my short legs and inability to find dress pants. Well that was before cords came back into style. What could possibly be better than pants that look like jeans, are comfier than jeans and can be worn to work because they aren’t actually jeans? Having them in pretty polka dots and fun colors, perhaps? I picked up the polka dot pair (now on sale at Anthro) and I am currently living in them.
The best part about this flirty faux leather trimmed skirt is it’s versatility. I’m thinking a blouse and booties for a girls night out or a sweater and flats on a chilly winter day.
I’ve been on the hunt for a black crossbody bag for some time. I love that this one has a removable strap so it goes from day to night in a snap. I’m also in love with the briefcase-esque handle and buckle. This is a multi-season staple.
Obsessed. Love the soft collar on this military-style jacket. Great for every day.
These come in nude and black as well, but I can’t resist two-tone electric blue. Anyone can rock a pair of neutral booties, but why not spruce things up a bit with a pop of color?
“Bullying is Never fashionable” … now that’s a trend that’ll never go out of style. I adore Rachel Roy. She is not just an amazing designer but an inspiration. The epitome of fashion meets philanthropy.
