It’s getting chilly out here in the Pacific Northwest. The wind is bringing down all the leaves and I’m breaking out the flannel.
I love flannel, don’t you? I know it’s a little cliche to say that when I’m from Seattle, but still. It’s warm, it’s soft, it adds a little color to my otherwise very neutral wardrobe. What’s not to like? Here’s what else I’m digging this month.
1. Dainty, layered necklaces (source)
They’re so cute and clever, I can’t resist. What’s more is that they provide hours of entertainment for my little guy (just hitting 8 months next week, egads!). I’m also loving that yellow gold is making a comeback, because that’s what I wear for the most part.
2. Essie’s Smokin’ Hot Purple/Gray Nail Polish (source)
Can’t wait to try out this neutral purple color. I’ve been going steady with my bottle of Honk If You Love OPI for years, but we’re in agreement that I should lighten up a little.
3. Flannel Button Downs (source)
I’ve been wearing this Old Navy shirt pretty much every chance I’ve gotten since bringing it home. My husband was teasing me that he’s never seen me do the laundry so fast because I can’t wait to wear it again (to which I said hardy har har).
4. Beige Suede Booties (source)
Lovely, lovely suede with just enough heel that I don’t end up killing myself walking down the driveway carrying the infant car seat. Plus, how nifty is that slightly cowboy-esque design? Yes, very.
5. Camel Leather Biker Jacket (source)
I used to have a jacket almost exactly like this, only way cheaper (I think I got it from H&M more than 5 years ago). I wore it to death (quite literally), and I’ve been looking for a new one ever since. So far all I can find is this (eek) $500 one from Nordstrom, so personally I’ll keep looking. But hey if you like it and you have the cash to burn – go for it.
What are your fall fashion staples? Know where I can find a leather jacket on the cheap these days? I’m dying to know!
