My Latest Snag: Striped Toteme Sweater.

I shared a ton of great striped finds for fall (including several pieces by La Ligne, seen above!) earlier this week, and ended up snagging this beautiful Toteme sweater for myself. I love the unexpected cobalt blue, and I feel like the cardigan will be a versatile shape (pair with jeans and a tee or layer over a dress — also want to wear it with white jeans before we get too late into the season). I’m also eyeing this brown stripe pullover from Jenni Kayne or this one from La Ligne. Did you end up with anything?

Weekend Musings: On Feeling It to Heal It.

We have talked a lot on Magpie about the value of acknowledging feelings as they happen, on sitting with them without identifying them as intrinsically “bad” or “good,” or telling myself I shouldn’t feel a certain way because of xyz. This is a mindset I’ve had to learn over time. I recently heard the expression “feel it to heal it,” and I think this will be my new catch phrase when I’m coaching myself (or my children, or friends, or siblings!) through a bumpy patch. Feel to heal. Let yourself work through the emotions as they arise, but with the intention of moving forward, not getting stuck.

Onward!

Shopping Break.

+40% off all ChappyWrap blankets! I was thinking this would be a good opportunity to buy ahead for gifts at the holiday season. This herringbone is classic, and I love this balloon print for a little girl.

+Just ordered myself this hydrating tinted lip balm in the peachy “Hold Me” color.

+Have been really crushing on the color brown lately — this dress is on my mind. More earth toned finds here.

+A fantastic under-$70 buy — this black jumpsuit can be dressed up or down, worn with heels or sandals or sneaks, layered beneath a cardigan if chilly, etc.

+Speaking of versatile black pieces: hurry to snag one of the last of these beautiful Doen dresses!

+I got my girlfriend hooked on this toning facial spray and she just reminded me of its many virtues — so refreshing. I loved using it to spritz on after applying makeup to sort of blot/soften the edges and add a little glow.

+Have been hearing good things about these lounge pants, which you could totally dress up with a white button down.

+How great is this under-$100 bengal stripe button-down?

+My kids will flip over these skeleton PJs for Halloween.

+Spectacular formal occasion dress for fall. Also love this ($120!!!) steal for dressy affairs.

+This would make such a lovely gift for a new baby — love the packaging.

+This $35 dress reminded me of the Xirena dress so many of you loved — note that the H&M is not the Xirena’s gauze material.
