I’m out of commission for the next few days with something flu-like. I plan on taking the time off to nurse myself back to health, relax and catch up on some of these shows that have been sitting in my DVR waiting to be watched. I’m sure a little on-line shopping is in my future as well which lead me to realize I’ve been forgetting to do my Weekend Wishlist for the past few weeks.
Joie is hands down one of the comfiest contemporary brands around. They’re best known for their casual, very comfy, and effortlessly-chic pieces but can be a little pricey when purchased at full retail price. Luckily for me I found this amazing 100% wool cable knit sweater and layering blouse, both Joie and both for a fraction of the original retail price at Marshalls!
Fun fact: As much as I am a city girl and love Boston, I’m originally from the South! Mississippi, to be exact. Although I’ve been living here in Boston for a long time, I absolutely love visiting and hanging out down there, and especially getting to visit some of my family that reside in New Orleans. Oh let’s not forget the legal public drinking (what’s better than walking around the French Quarters and browsing the amazing street art with a pina colada in your hand?)!
I went down there in September and I’m finally getting a chance to post these photos now, so hope you enjoy them! (click to enlarge)

Even though I haven’t done many posts with them on, I’m clearly a “kicks” girl (see: Instagram). I’ve coveted sneakers since I was a kid and my collection continues to grow into my adulthood. Some of my favorites are a pair of Jordan 3’s and Air Max ’95’s. Within the last few years, I’ve become pretty obsessed with Nike Dunk Sky Hi’s. If you’ve been following along, you’ve probably seen my small but growing collection. The one I’m wearing here are my most recent pick-ups and my absolute favorite of Sky Hi’s that I own thus far. I love the rose gold color and snake-skin like material. Let’s not forget how comfy they are despite the wedge. Runner up is a pair of Nike x Liberty London floral ones I bought a few years back. I’m pretty obsessed. Wedge kicks have been popular for quite some time now but these dunks seem to have won me over from the rest. I’d have to say though, the Isabel Marants aren’t too far behind…
Because they’re already so flashy, I chose to wear these sneakers with denim on denim and topped it off with an Altuzarra for Target faux fur jacket that I’ve been eyeing since the release. I finally got it when it went on clearance. Gotta love Targét (Tarjayyyyy)!
One of my favorite shades for Fall has got to be Burgundy. A lot of times I’ll mix similar shades of the same color family (like the pants and jacket) so that it doesn’t look too uniform… At 30 years old, I aim not to go for the schoolgirl look, although I can often pass for one.
For me, the theme this fall has been laid back and oversized. I love how this vest is both of these things, yet still streamlined and sleek and perfect to wear over a light plaid top on an unusually mild October day. Another thing you’ll see me wearing often this season is black denim. I’m in jeans a lot, but black and distressed is my jam. It’s just so easy to wear.
Now that it’s “sweater season” I’ve been frequently searching for ones that are both versatile as well as comfy. Recently, during one of my visits to Marshalls, I found this sporty-chic AIKO colorblock pullover with side zips which retails at $230, but snagged for $49.00 (yay me)! It’s super soft and cozy and the colorblock detail plus side zips make it so much more interesting than other “typical” pullovers. I can definitely see myself pairing this sweater with different jeans and skirts all season long! Loving my latest #fabfound!
Hi guys! Just wanted to let you know about a new Marshalls store opening in Waltham, Mass. this Thursday, October 9th. I got a chance to check out the store before they opened and let me tell you it’s chocked full of #fabfound goodies (photos below)! If you’re already following me via Twitter, you may already know that I’ll actually be there on opening day between 1pm-3pm greeting folks and giving out gift cards to those who tell me the code phrase, “I heart Marshalls.” There’ll be other giveaways going on throughout the day, as well as a DJ and the Cookie Monstah food truck! It’s going to be a good time and trust me, the merchandise is fabulous (I especially love that the clothing hangers are size specific so that I can go directly to my section)! I’ve already got my eyes on a few items from pretty much every department! I hope to see you guys there!
I’ve been living in my over-the-knee boots like I knew I would be… Thank goodness that they have a low heel. I’ve been wearing them with pretty much everything. (Note to self: get back-up pair.) There’s something about this knit sweater paired with dainty lace (it’s a dress, btw) plus luxe suede and rocker-girl fringe that I love. It all creates the perfect storm- a match made in stylish Fall Heaven that I just couldn’t resist.
Do you love this H&M fringe bag as much as I do? If the answer is yes, scroll down and enter to win your own.
(P.s. I am not affiliated with H&M. I just love this bag and thought you should have one too!)
