J.Crew Leather Skirt-200

J.Crew Factory Houndstooth Skirt (Except mine is in black; similar here in navy) and Top (Old, similar here) / Kate Spade Bag (Old, but new black bag obsession here!) and Sunnies (Old, newer styles here) / Fornash Bangle (c/o) / J.Crew Earrings and Necklace (Old, similar here) / Adrienne Vittadini Pumps / Miniature Dachshund

During my last trip home, I packed up all my fall and winter clothing–which I’d left at my parents’ home over the summer–and carted it back to Chicago. Guys, I’m so happy, haha. While I’m sure I was simply sick of last year’s seemingly never-ending freezing temps, I distinctly remember hating my cold weather wardrobe a mere eight months ago. And I’m 100-percent positive I’ll regret ever typing this in a couple of months, but it’s so nice to have all my tweed and plaid back. Even though I need to spend a good five hours ironing it all, as evidenced by these photos! ;)

This post is on “auto post” #godblesswordpress, but I’ll be sure to check back in later today. (So many photos to share from my family’s visit!) In the meantime, and since I’m wearing head-to-to J.Crew again, have you seen the company’s new arrivals?! I’m swooning over this Excursion Vest in “Buffalo Check,” this Funnelneck Sweatshirt in “Slate” (so expensive but goodness), this plaid shirt (wish it were flannel), these gold pants (but wondering about the wrinkle factor), these pajama pants, and these elephant flats (duh). What do you have your eye on?!

Also, Piperlime is having a huge designer sale. Use code “NOWORNEVER” to take 25 percent of the selection. Shop my faves below! (Best pick? This sweater.)
