now that we’re officially into that crisp fall weather (my absolute favorite time of year), i thought i’d dedicate this week’s friday finds to all things cozy and warm. sounds just right at that time of year when you suddenly want suede elbow patches on all of your sweaters, and nothing sounds better than a fireplace and a glass of wine. so grab your mug of hot cider (or your box of franzia), and read on.
shopbop did a fabulous lookbook of their best outerwear this week, and i swooned many times. but the piece that really caught my eye was this short-sleeved faux fur by wink ($288). i know, the fur trend is a little scary. but this might be the perfect starter faux if you ask me – i love how casually it’s styled, and i think a real person could actually pull this look off. plus, when the trend dies, this one would still work wonders with a cocktail frock.
since i basically only wear socks with boots, i tend to veer toward a little fun in my knit footwear. these sweet socks from lisa b. ($19+) are pricey enough you wouldn’t want to lose their mate, but think of the warm fuzzy feeling when you put these on in the morning. it’d be almost as good as coffee.
this red plaid blouse has that back-to-school, fall days quality i’m looking for this time of year. i just adore the peter pan collar and that contrasting placket…so sweet! i’d love to see it layered with a great tweed jacket or a grey cardi, and maybe a fun pleated skirt. or dark skinny jeans.
and, speaking of plaid, i have been head over heels for this see by chloe plaid coat since i first laid eyes on it. in fact, it’s sitting in my dining room this very moment. alas, it’s going back…this style would work best on a girl with a slightly smaller chest. but it’s unbelievably pretty in person, and unbelievably cheap at the outnet right now. let me know if you need a size 8.
this really has nothing to do with fall…i can’t think of a single tie-in. but this giles and brother chevron necklace is absolutely gorgeous, even if it is $345, and i’ve had it planned for ‘friday finds’ since i spotted it earlier this week. so there it is.
have a great weekend, everyone!
