Sweater Weather (Affordable Faves)

Sweater Weather

Click on the image for more info and where to buy

 

Ok, did the chilly weather sneak up on anyone else? Yes, I am aware that the temps have been steadily dropping for a few weeks, but I woke up this morning, ready to put on a nice warm sweater and guess what? I don't have any. Ok, thats a little extreme. I have a few sweaters- but I really thought I was a little better prepared for the cold weather thats a-comin. But the nearly empty sweater drawer says otherwise...Oh well, guess I'll have to go shopping...

Here are some warm toppers at the top of my wishlist...(all under $100.)

Cat-printed Hat

Happy chilly Thursday lovelies! I would like to introduce you to my new hat. Its fuzzy, animal print and a fedora- pretty much the headwear trifecta, no? I'm pretty excited. I see a whole winter of bad hair days covered by this little baby. Its part of Target's collaboration with milliner Albertus Swanepoel (who is also doing a line with Jcrew this fall.) I'm psyched because it looks so much like the JCrew version (which is $178!) and I got mine for $10 with a leftover Target gift card. Love me a good bargain. I'm seeing it paired with a chunky sweater, dark skinny jeans, an arm full of cuffs and suede ankle booties. So happy fall is here!!!

Check it out here and get your hands on one...

Bright Ideas

 

Hello there pretties. Meet the two newest additions to my closet.  I headed to Nordi's looking for one dress for the wedding we will be attending in Key West next week and came home with two (this one and this one). I really couldn't decide between the two. I absolutley adore the bright fun prints! Don't you think the hubs should let me keep them both? Yeah, I think so too.

P.S. Happy Happy Happy Birthday (Dirty 30!) to my bestie Laine! We have been friends since 4th grade and she is such an important, wonderful part of my life. I hope your day is filled with awesome surprises and lots of treats. Love you little friend!

Dear Me: Oh, You Shouldn't Have!

Dear Self,
Today you got some really great news. You have been hired on some super exciting new freelance and consulting jobs. And you got an awesome new day job! As a reward, I bought you this stunning necklace you have been drooling over forever. Because sometimes a girl's gotta treat herself. (Don't tell husband...)
