Miami Beach, Recent Finds, 10/18, Christmas shoes

Lilly Pulitzer Brewster Dress / J.Crew Factory Huarache Sandals (Similar here.)

Hello from Miami Beach! I’m here with Mitch and Lucy for a project with Lauren by Ralph Lauren, and we’re so enjoying the beautiful weather.

Emma is with Grammy and Pop Pop for the next few days because we didn’t want her to miss pre-k, but as luck would have it, Chicago public school teachers are on strike, so school is cancelled until they come to an agreement with the city. (Fully support this! I’d specifically like to see better pay for the wonderful people who shape the future of our country; smaller class sizes; and nurses, librarians, speech pathologists, counselors and psychologists at every school.) So yeah. A little sad that we could’ve had Emma along for the trip, but it’s also so wonderful that she gets to be with her grandparents and that we get to have some quality one-on-one time with Lucy.

Anyway, here are this week’s “Recent Finds.” :)

STOP. IT. Best Christmas shoes of the year; I’m calling it now!

Just received this in the mail and I LOVE IT. It looks adorable under blazers and/or tucked into jeans. I also can’t see my bra through it, which I was worried about. So very nice!

Interested in this one, too. :)

Sweater dresses are back! :)

This one is cute.

WHY ARE BROWN CORDS SO HARD TO FIND? Frame jeans are notoriously expensive but wondering if they’re worth it…

Such a great deal on a classic quilted jacket.

Ignore her skirt, but isn’t the detailing on this sweater beautiful?

I’m here for velvet button-downs… just not here for the price.

The runners up. That bow!

Get this. I wear mine throughout the fall and winter; so nice to have a plaid flannel shirt that you can wear past Christmas.

A clip dot dress?! In love. It comes in black, too.

Sperrys in Liberty London print.

This is a definite. All about those cozy swing tops!

More affordable velvet button-down!

Vineyard Vines! This is ah-mah-zing.

The classic sherpa vest is back.

Sigh. It’s gorgeous!

I struggle with wearing dresses during the holidays because I just get so cold. But this dress might be worth it. ;)

Noodle sweater alert!

Hands down, favorite faux leather leggings.

Was pleasantly surprised by J.Crew’s dark skinny jeans! They’re keepers. Run TTS.

40 percent of the Lady Day Coat right now! I have the pink and light blue, and they definitely add some cheer to my winters. :)

Had to highlight these guys again. They’re such awesome Gucci Brixton Loafer lookalikes, and they’re extremely comfy!
