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.

Tory Burch + Neiman Sales

Both Tory Burch and Neiman Marcus are having huge sales right now, and I did NOT want you to miss out! I’m snagging a few gifts for The Boy and my sister, but I think I deserve one or two things, right?┬áp.s. Tory and Neiman both have incredible gift packaging, so definitely opt for that if your wrapping skills are as awful good as mine!

Fall Essentials

It’s unofficially the most wonderful season of the year – fall! One of my favorite things about fall growing up was back-to-school shopping. While I may not be going back to school, I’m totally all about fall shopping. For me, it’s all about riding boots (may my old ones rest in peace), quilted jackets, and a great neutral leather tote. What’s on your list?

Delight of the Day 10/15

 I love tall boots. As soon as Sperry/Jack Rogers season is over, I essentially live in them. Frye, Ralph Lauren, Hunter, Tory Burch – you name them, I love them. However, the price tags can get a little steep, which is why I always like to have a less expensive pair on hand for nights out and casual Fridays in the office.

 Hence, today’s Delight of the Day – Target’s Kasia Leather Riding Boot, $74.99. (p.s. Download Target’s Cartwheel app for 20% off. That brings these gems down to $59.99. So affordable!) The quality of these is pretty great considering the price, and they’re priced at a point where I’m not going to be super protective of them and refuse to go into certain bars while wearing them. (I told you. I really love my leather boots.) Since I already have two pairs of chocolate brown boots, a pair of black boots, and a pair of black with brown accents, I opted for the tan. You can wear these with pretty much anything, so you’ll get even more bang for your buck! How can you say no?

Delight of the Day 9/17

Today’s Delight of the Day is the Factory Professor Blazer from J.Crew, normally $168 but on sale for $103 with code “LOVEIT”! I’ve had my eye on several red blazers and was waiting for one to go on sale, so when I saw that this one was down to almost $100, I couldn’t resist. I’m loving it with some dark denim, chocolate riding boots, and a St. James t-shirt.

p.s. the winner of the $100 J.Crew gift card is Stephanie from Mid West Prep!

Girls, buy these boots!

Ralph Lauren Stara Riding Boots, $129.99

I get SO many compliments when wearing these boots. When it comes to riding boots, less is more – and Ralph Lauren knows it. These are simple and tasteful, and they make a big statement. Pair them with your favorite blazer and khakis, and you’ll get noticed by all the right people. At under $130 (plus free shipping and returns), what do you have to lose?
