Scalloped Cape

Happy Friday!

We have a really low-key weekend ahead of us. We’re just hanging as a family tonight; maybe getting dinner at a nearby restaurant if we want to get out of the house… and then on Saturday, we have a birthday party that’s being thrown for a little boy in Emma’s class.

I can’t believe how many birthday parties we’ve been going to lately! Friends with older kids say they have one almost every weekend… but I kind of love it! They get us out and about in different parts of the city, Emma always has a blast, and they encourage her (and us!) to try new activities. Last weekend we went to Pump It Up, which was out of this world. If you’re in Chicago, I’d highly recommend visiting during the winter when the kids are bouncing off the walls. They will get ALL their energy out. ;)

And then on Sunday, I believe my in-laws are coming up for the day. Trying to convince them to come on Saturday so we can have an evening together, but they have busier social lives than we do, so that might be tough. 😜

Okay! On to this week’s “Recent Finds.” I have so many good ones!

My favorite Barbour–the Polarquilt Beadnell–is now available in a new color! LOVE. You can find other colors via Nordstrom and Bloomingdales!

Isn’t this dress sweet? Might be a bit too young for me, but 1901 recently sent it to me and I’m excited to try!

This would look gorgeous tucked into jeans or work pants.

The softest cardigan I’ve ever owned.

HOLY CABLE. Yes to this.

The poms are back in town.

Love me a good hot pink sweater.

Pumped to break out my fair isle stuff. Love this one!

This looks amazingly soft.

I tried this on in the Barbour store and it was SO WARM. I went up two sizes; runs small.

GORGEOUS. Omg. Freaking out over this one, haha.

A great fall vest! Love the plaid.

I love sweaters that you can wear as shirts. :) This one is made out of J.Crew’s softest yarn.

Houndstooth blazer in the Regent cut. Amazing!

This one’s in my cart. I need more white tops! I’m always running out.

This is such a Kelly dress. #30daysofplaid so soon!

Favorite umbrella is back.

I’m going to be reviewing this coat soon with Barbour. It’s part of their Icons collection, and it’s definitely my favorite! Look at the tartan lining!

Deciding between this bootie…

…or this one for the fall. This one is waterproof so I’m tempted to go with this one… but idk. Thoughts?!

Love these!

These would be stunning for the office.

A boucle Barbour scarf! Love how soft it is.

Also in my cart. :)

Herringbone car coat. I have one of these from Madewell from a few years ago and I’m always stopped when I wear it!

The buffalo check shirt jacket is back!


Grab this before it sells out! Last time J.Crew carried it, it was gone within a week or two.

The Essex pants are on sale! This is my favorite color.

Talbots, you’re killing it this season.

I have this in the camel and adore the fit. This one is beautiful, too!


Beautiful light pink lady coat.

The collar!

The scalloped detailing on this one is beautiful.

Thank you, Coach. The Willis is here!

Look closely. It’s herringbone!

I can’t wait to break out my suede leggings/jeans.

Such a great cardigan.

Also in my cart, haha.

Old Navy’s Stevie collection is awesome this fall!

This is also an Old Navy find. I have it and can’t recommend it more! Size down. Such a steal.

The neckline!

I haven’t tried these jeans, but they look amazing on the model.

A great ribbed turtleneck that easily tucks into both work pants and jeans!

Camel cords are so hard to find.

This is apparently super soft.

I have this sweater! :)

A velvet mock neck top — perfect for the holidays!

Had to include these again, since they’re AH-MAH-ZING. Love pants that look dressy yet feel like pajamas. ;)

Legging cords. You’re welcome.

I’m clearly obsessed with the leopard dresses this season.

I think Jess wore this recently on her blog. The collar is adorable!

Window pane print.

These look like they’d be $400, but they’re only $89!
