Weekend Shift.

In Accessories, Denim, Fur, Shoes, Winter Weather on October 29, 2014 at 8:52 am

I’ve been wearing variations on the same outfit during the past few fall weekends.  It starts with a textured baseball cap ($55).  I recently got a long bob, and when I haven’t put in the effort to style it, it looks great kinda wavy beneath my cap.  I wear this with my puffy vest ($110), a fair-isle sweater ($250 — Joie also has a great style), distressed denim,

I’ve been finishing with either my Loeffler Randall Matildes, my Rag+Bone Kinseys, or fall-colored flats like these metallic camo wonders from J. Crizz ($148, plus 25% off!):

OK, chic peas, today is all about bargain finds to add to your fall closet.  And at the tippy-top of this list is this incroyable leopard dress ($98):

I like it over a denim dan get-up in the form of this chic Gap top ($69) and J. Brands ($218), finished with Rag+Bone Kinseys (on sale for $327 now!!!  I die, because I bought these full-price last fall…and P.S., I also love this budget-friendly pair):

Other deals and steals on my radar: my new zebra-pint PJs; buffalo check shirt-dress; buffalo plaid coat-sweater-jacket-thing; shearling vest; horse-print Equipment blouse (on sale!); and this perfect-for-work textured dress.

Outdoorsy…ish.

I can’t lie.  As much as I love nature (Mr. Mags and I recently spent a Saturday morning at the Chicago Botanical Gardens like two old people…what’s more embarrassing is that we were up by 8 AM on a Saturday and made it out there before 9.  Seriously, when did we turn old?!), I’m not exactly a throw-on-some-Tevas-and-hike type.  But I l.o.v.e. the woodsy clubby wilderness look in my home (see more about this here — and PSST: major update: I splurged and bought that Stark antelope carpet — more snaps here — for our living room) and like nothing more than cozy woolly plaid knits for fall.  Below, a few things that have caught my eye recently: these great antler pillows ($125 each);  faux antler trio ($69); a gorgeous cozy plaid throw ($129); a vintage plaid club chair ($2,349); and this great faux ram’s head ($99).
