Delight of the Day 10/19

talbots

I mentioned a few ago that I have a new obsession with Talbots. They are quickly replacing the place in my heart that was previously reserved for J.Crew’s basics. So when I saw that they were having a sale for 30-40% off some of my favorites, I knew I had to share. I adore this Collared Breton Strip Sweater ($38.99) and this Plaid Henley ($35.99)! Scroll below to see some of my other fav steals.

Homecoming Attire

Homecoming

For the first time since I graduated (it’s been four years already – yikes!), I’m going to homecoming! I’ve considered going a few times, but bad weather and work have always gotten in the way. This year, I made a resolution to finally make my way back. I love Pittsburgh – especially in autumn. Now, I know you Southern girls are shaking your heads wondering where my sundress and bows are, but we do it a little differently up North. Mostly because it’s freezing.

Brooks Brothers Tartan

Today’s Delight of the Day is the perfect dress for this crazy transition weather. It’s still warm enough to wear dresses some days, but you’ve already retired your favorite little white dress, so what are you to do? Buy a pretty tartan dress from Brooks Brothers! Plus, when it starts to get cold, just pair it with a blazer and your favorite riding boots, and you can wear it until it starts snowing!

J.Crew – The Always List

I don’t know about you, but when I opened J.Crew’s latest catalog this week, I thought, “Yay, they’re finally listening!” The Always List is perfection. Everything is timeliness and very reminiscent of the J.Crew days of old. What’s are your thoughts? Are they back on the right track, or is it too late?

Added bonus: take 25% off of everything online with code {SHOPNOW}!

Delight of the Day 9/17

Talbots

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve always written Talbots off as being for older women. We have one right next to my favorite Starbucks location, and I’ve glanced in the windows, but I’ve never actually gone in. However, one of my favorite blogs, Summer Wind (I’m partial to anyone with good style who lives in Pennsylvania), always has posts with the cutest clothes, so I decided to give it a try. Thank goodness.

They had the best collection of cashmere sweaters. I literally bought every color in my size.  I love that they’re three-quarter sleeves, because I always find myself folding up long sleeves, which ends up making the arms baggy. Not cute. In terms of sizing, I wanted something fitted, so I ordered my typical size. I noticed on the website that people said the sweaters ran small, but they were probably looking for a more casual fit.

Delight of the Day 9/15

Louboutin

I know everyone loves booties for fall, but I’ve been a very reluctant convert. My mom always had them growing up, and they kind of always had a witchy feel to me. Perfection for Halloween parties, but not something I’d wear every day. Then I saw these beauties from Christian Louboutin, and realized they weren’t all so bad. Only problem? I can’t justify spending 1,000 dollars on a pair of booties.

Alas, my brief flirtation with booties was finished. Until I went shopping this weekend. This adorable sales associate had on the cutest booties, so I had to ask her where she got them. She told me they were Clarks. I was shocked, because I think of Clarks as sort of a granola company with comfortable shoes, but not necessarily the cutest. Well, I stand corrected. And at $140, these are much more in my price range.

Nordstrom Clearance Sale

I posted about a bunch of sales last weekend, but I keep coming back to the Nordstrom Clearance Sale. Some of our favorite brands are 40% right now! Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Burberry that you can actually afford? Yes, please! While you’re there, you can also check out some of my fall favorites:

Typically, I spend most of Labor Day relaxing by someone’s pool and shopping all the sales from my phone. Unfortunately, I’m a grownup now and have to work this weekend, but I’ll still be scrolling through all the deals!
