Sweater + skirt

I love this look.

I will definitely be trying out this look once it gets chilly here in North Carolina. So classic, but unexpected.

Redo: The Trench

I know I already blogged about trench coats, but I want this one:

The trench

And if it came with an Hermes birkin, I’d be in heaven. Swoon…

What do you call this?!

I’m dying to know what that pearl-and-gold accent on this cardigan is. (I once saw one featured in a Chanel ad years ago, and I’ve been wondering ever since.) Any costume designers or fashion nerds out there know?

Sweater weather? Skirt weather.

I wear jeans to work almost every day. So does everyone else in my office. And while that sounded like a good idea at first, I’ve recently realized this casualness has made me a slob. I went a whole week without styling my hair. I don’t even try to match my clothes anymore. I do laundry twice a month, and I can’t remember the last time I went shopping. Yikes!

But now that the weather has finally changed, maybe I’ll try to breathe some new life into my wardrobe. And because I’ve been working on something exciting (and top-secret, for now) that may require me looking presentable in the near future, I want skirts.


Darjeeling Skirt from Anthropologie



Skirts with leggings, skirts with tights, sweater dresses with boots and artsy socks. Sheesh, I’ll take any skirt that looks good with HEELS (because I rarely wear those to work too).

I also feel the  need to help redeem American fashion after Gretchen won Project Runway with her boring, brown, boho-homeless-person collection.

But I don’t want to wear skirts EVERY day (sometimes I have to help unload trucks of books). So I’d take a pair of cigarette pants, too.

Oh J. Crew…

Why couldn’t you have had this collection of wedding gowns a year ago? I would have snatched this one up in an instant:
