Duster Danger

Guys, I’m kicking myself. I waited too long to post this velour duster by Leith and it sold out. I wanted to share it with you too, because I adore it. I pulled up some similar dusters and the good news is that I found some great ones that are under $30! I probably have about a dozen dusters in my closet. I especially like the lightweight ones for spring.  Did any of you watch Highlander back in the day? I’ve had a duster obsession since that show. If you’re on the short side and you’re concerned about the length of a duster I’d encourage you to buy a mid-calf length and then  wear a platform heel. Hey, short people problems are a real thing. My jeans are on sale so make sure you check those out too. Have a wonderful, productive week.

Champagne Brain

Ever since my friend Rebecca Donovan came to visit I’ve been hooked on champagne. Seriously though she takes champagne with her wherever she travels, and also loads and loads of jewelry. She’s like Mary Poppins when she starts taking things out of her bag; except everything is shiny and filled with bubbles. Scarlet and I were mesmerized. I bought this long blazer because it reminds me of Rebecca and our drunk champagne nights. I’m not even sure I like champagne, but I drink it now because she left so many bottles in my fridge. Anyway, I included a couple of different boot styles in the post. The pair that I’m wearing are mostly sold out, so in case you can’t find your size check out the other styles. There’s one pair on a GREAT sale.

Free People SALE!

My friends, Free People is price matching! They can really break the bank with their snooty prices, but I’ve never had a problem with their quality. If you buy something from them you’re going to wear if for a couple of season. I wanted to hurry and post this sweater which is on SALE with the price match. It’s not a heavy wool sweater. It’s loosely knitted so you’ll need something underneath it if it’s very cold (I wore a white shirt). But, it’s also perfect for Fall and Spring since it is fairly light (and soft). Also, these boots are made for walking. I didn’t get to walk over anyone, but I think that if I did they would still be comfortable! All day comfort, and if you’re going to invest in over-the-knee boots why not get a color that pops? What? I’m not practical. And our Egg chair. It’s dreamy. All four of us read in that thing. I’m trying to convince Josh to put it in the bedroom until its warm again.

Home Plaid Home

Welcome to my home! I like dinosaur bones, and alligator book-ends, and at Christmastime I like all the plaid. EVERYTHING PLAID! I also like a really comfortable pair of wedges. These are probably my favorite pair, and I wear them most often. The fringe adds a little something to a plain outfit, but I know fringe isn’t for everyone. Remember, if you have shorter legs wearing a wedge with skinny jeans will give the illusion of length. Also, this cable knit sweater is something I wear once a week. This time I tucked in the front for a different look and i really liked it. Felt like something new.

Personal story: this week Ryder decided he wants to be a playwright. He’s been writing plays, practicing plays, and in general tormenting us with plays. I have to say, this is the strangest phase he’s ever gone through. At night he’s actually been crying himself to sleep over some internal play drama. I’m all like “SHUT UP ABOUT YOUR ART, RYDER! You don’t see me crying do you?” (he does). Anyway, I always thought Scarlet would be the angsty artists, but…

Kitten Heels & Red Coats

Hello, again. I’m back from London and tired as hell. One of the best trips I’ve ever taken. London is like a little Christmas dream this time of year. The pubs have garlands and lights in their windows, the shops go all out with their displays, and most important is the mulled wine which you can get anywhere and everywhere. But, let’s be honest, the real reason I had fun was because I was traveling with Josh, who likes to laugh, drink, and shop. It was a dreamy experience.

Did you kids get tons of homework over Thanksgiving break? Because we had so much homework! Anyway, I’m trying to play catch up. Also I drank so much on my holiday that I now look like a puffer fish. I am on a no-alcohol diet, and I haven’t touched dessert in three days. Detoxing. When I come back from trips like this one, or even after the holidays, I stick to a high protein diet of meats, cheese, and veggies while drinking as much water as I can. I typically see the vacation weight drop off pretty quickly that way. I also do about thirty to forty minutes of my weighted hula hoop a day. Anyway, I am wearing a Burberry trench, but I found some great affordable look-alikes for you. Happy Shopping.

Love Warrior

I’m pretty excited. I found this look for you in regular and plus size! The jeans are VERY inexpensive for both, and the Peaceful Warrior tee I’m wearing in the picture is linked HERE and on sale for ten bucks! It even has a pocket (everything is better with a pocket). As for the cardigan it’s oversized and baggy (perfectly so) and soft. I am wearing a small in the picture. If you get a large it will certainly fit plus size. I’ve linked you below.

 

Hey, have I told you lately that love kills? Not in a knife to the heart way (though it does that too). I mean in a dousing out all the evil things-way. Peaceful warrior means you go to war against evil using love and kindness as your weapons. I’ve never seen love fail. Not ever. Wear it as your armor instead of defensiveness, and instead of retaliation. It will keep your heart kind and soft even when someone is throwing hate and shade. And given time love always turns the hardest hearts. Be consistently kind to your enemies. Not for them, for you.

Violet Beauregarde

I had a purple bedroom when I was sixteen. I took it so way over the top (surprise, surprise). Sheer purple curtains, purple vases, purple comforter, purple stuffed animals, purple walls. All the shades, yo. Needless to say I got a little burned out. This fall I’ve returned to the color of my youth. No doubt I’ll take it over the top again! Because, you know-when I love something I love it too hard. Like… until I kill it. But, until I murder purple here are all of my favorite things. I included two sale wallets too, because Kate Spade at fifty percent off is a great thing. Hey, girl, hey!

Hunter SALE

You guys! Hunter is having a sale! It’s hard to score Hunter rain boots for under $150, but Hunter has put a bunch of fun colors on sale. Now is the time to grab them for you or someone else for Christmas. Yes, I said it, the “C” word. You’ll thank me if you start your Christmas shopping now, procrastinator. Or maybe just buy them for yourself and hand them to your significant other and say “Surprise! This is what you bought me!” Whatever, right? Just buy the boots.

The Cape Blazer

I feel as if this is the mullet of blazers; business in the front, party in the back. Costume party. But, hey! I liked wearing it. I’m a blazer fanatic anyway, so this addition was perfect. It’s also forty percent off right now, and I’m jealous about that. So, go check it out!
