OK, so I inspired myself with the workout post and got my butt in gear the other day, wearing Lululemon leggings ($98), an Adidas sweatshirt (#basic, $55), and Nike Flyknits ($130)–Kanye’s Life of Pablo blaring. It was a beautiful fall day and I took my dog, Tilden, with me. We alternated jogging and walking for 2 miles. It’s a start. I am SO out of shape it is pitiful. But, it’s a start. The one maj downside is that Tilden is still a pup and she absolutely HATES squirrels, and there are about a trillion squirrels in my neighborhood, hyper-actively collecting food for winter…so I was almost dragged into a few trees/bushes a few times. Yikes. But all in all, I was pret-ty impressed with myself. I also spent time taking mental inventory of all of the cool new fashionista things I am into right now + they definitely kept me trotting/wheezing along for awhile.
I’m kind of furious with Moda Operandi for featuring some sneak preview items for the upcoming resort season (GUYS, we just got into cooler weather!), but this dress from Rhode Resort is just too good and I need it ($365). Even though it’s not cheap, it looks like it’s a Gucci or something that cost well north of $1500!
Golden Goose sneakers have been a street style cult pick for a few seasons now. They aren’t for the faint of heart and dare I say they’re a little dumb in that they come pre-scuffed-up (intentionally!) to achieve a vintage, lived-in look from day 1. But, I spotted a chic Chicagoan wearing a pair with a short striped cotton dress the other day and have to say she looked very cool. Net-A-Porter has a quite the collection available ($480).
This taffeta t-shirt ($52) is so high-fashion, and at such a fab price!
Love this crisp striped button-down tunic ($59). Indulges my prepster side.
This gold pitcher ($59) is EVERYTHING. It’d look gorgeous styled on a shelf/in a glass cabinet, full of fresh blooms, or (obviously) to serve up a batch of moscow mules. There’s a coordinating bowl, available in two sizes, too ($39+).
Also, while on the topic of all-things-gilded for tabletop, how rad are these candlestick holders ($18 each)?!?! I love the idea of adding these to a Thanksgiving tablescape.
OMG, this personalized bomber ($380)!!! I want my name embroidered on it, STAT. So chic with some skinny jeans and black booties.
These bow-topped leopard loafers are $36. Yes, $36. I need.
Also, though this was a good price for a plain striped tee ($19) — and love the longer length.
Speaking of stripes, my absolute favorite PJs of all time (so comfy, so flattering, so breathable!) are available in three great striped formulations.
Ladies, put your hands together. I’ve found an affordable lookalike to the Oscar de la Renta tassel earrings from Etsy storefront Beading Way. I die over these gold-and-black ones for holiday parties ($49), but these “latte” ones ($49) are also pretty TDF. But some classic gold ones ($48) can’t fail ya.
