Recent Finds 9/30 - Madewell Francie Tall Boot

My favorite fall boots are back!

Well, the big news is pictured above. I love these boots. They’re timeless-looking and chic, they provide warmth when wearing skirts and dresses, and they’re unbelievably comfortable. Miracle boots, I tell you! (In case you’re wondering, they run TTS. I do, however, always order a half size up in boots in case I want to wear thick socks.) Anyway, I give them an A+ and then some.

Here are the rest of this week’s Recent Finds:

I love cardigans that can also be worn as tops—mostly for the warmth. ;) But they really do look chic, and really cute with skinny jeans and heels or chunky boots.

Can’t decide whether this would look too bulky or absolutely adorable. Thoughts?!

I have last year’s version of this jacket and adore it. Runs big, so take that into consideration when ordering. The windowpane version is really cute, too!

I’m a huge fan of Madewell’s Cali Demi-Boot denim line. If you only wear skinny jeans but want to try a new cut, this is a GREAT place to start, because the Cali jeans are very much like skinny jeans throughout the hips and upper leg—they just flare out a bit at the bottom. Super flattering, and they look great with flats, booties, heels and sneakers. Can’t recommend more. TTS and very comfy.

Stop the presses. Is this not the softest-looking blazer of all time?! I really only wear this sweater blazer these days, but I might make an exception for this one!

This looks so cozy! Though I’m not sure anything can beat Faherty’s incredible Legend Sweater Shirts. Those things are legit. Worth the investment, too. (Use code “KITC20” for 20 percent off, btw.) They’re the softest flannel shirts I’ve ever tried, and they have stretch in them for added comfort!

Oh my gosh. The famous Transport Tote is now available in a puffer leather? Here for it.

YAY. Madewell has come out with a bootie featuring super-soft, no-break-in-time leather. I hope they come out with a riding boot or over-the-knee boot version!

Listen. I know we don’t like to think about it, but the cold weather is around the corner. But at least we have Sorel boots to get us through! Aren’t these cute?

This is in my cart! Love an easy top that can be worn out but also to friends’ houses with kids on Friday nights. This is another awesome option.

Ditto with this one! I have last year’s version of this top and wear the white or black version at least once per week. It’s really thick and cozy yet also cute and flattering!

ACK necklace!

ACK hat! I wear this every morning to drop-off because I can’t get my act (ACKT?) together. Hahaha. I’m so funny.

I bring this backpack on every trip! It’s great because it’s squishy and takes up so little space in my suitcase, and it’s uber comfy. It also looks polished and allows me to be hands-free. In California, I took it every walk on the beach in the morning/evening, as we were usually on our way to coffee/breakfast/dinner. You can also find it via Bloomingdales.

I was supposed to wear this dress to Gabby’s wedding, but unfortunately it didn’t come in time. So I might wear it to Sammy’s; we’ll see!

Faherty’s jean selection is amazing. I’ve never tried them before but they look so promising!

The famous Legend Sweater Shirt! Such a huge fan. Use code “KITC20” to take 20 percent off. Runs TTS, but it’s meant to be loose. So if you’re looking for a more fitted look, consider sizing down.

Here’s the dress version!

Best. Fall. Jacket. Ever. It’s selling out quickly, but guys: If you can find it in your size, PURCHASE IMMEDIATELY. It’s so ridiculously soft and cuddly, and it feels like you’re wearing a blanket! The gold hardware makes it look very sharp, too. I brought it along on our trip for chilly mornings and nights, and got so much use out of it. I would say that it runs TTS, but don’t size up. I took it in an XS, which is my usual size in J.Crew outerwear, and it’s super flattering yet I still have room for layering.

I’ve recently fallen in love with Dana Rebecca, who I’ve been hearing about for ages now! This necklace—which I think is her most famous—is my favorite. You can also find it via Nordstrom.

Bracelet version!

Okay, these rain boots are lined with SHERPA. Hello, dry and cozy toes!

Sherpa mittens, too. :) They also come in black, which might be a little better for everyday life.

This is my most-worn workout top. I have it in the stripe, white and black, and wear one every morning to drop-off. (Much like the ACK hat.) It’s great. Breathable and warm, too. So easy to throw on yet looks pretty polished for workout clothing!

Favorite leggings are back in olive green! They look very cute paired with the striped top. ;)

And this is my most-worn chambray shirt. Love the wash, and the softness is great when you put in the dryer for just a little bit.

Madewell brought back the button-front Road Tripper jeans! If you’re new to the Roadtripper line, they’re Madewell’s softest and stretchiest jeans, meant to be so comfy that you’d want to wear them on a road trip!

These boots! Shearling-lined and so cute.

I thought my favorite t-shirt was being discontinued, but maybe not?! Thank goodness. It’s on sale, though! Size up. Runs a little small.

Great everyday flats on major sale.

In leopard here, also on sale.

I wear this black-and-white striped tee every week during the fall. Have had it for years and it’s just such a classic, and great for layering!

If you’re more of a navy girl. ^

BAREFOOT DREAMS CARRIES LEGGINGS?! How did I not know this, and has anyone tried them?

Jude Connally’s “Jude Cloth” is the best. It’s wrinkle-reistant and travels great. Love this LBD, which I feel like you could wear on all types of occasions! The longer length is clutch.

Still have my eye on the beautiful Jenni Kayne leopard skirt…

The best riding boots in all the land. Felt like they needed a second mention. ;)

Do you guys remember this sweater from last year?! It sold out SO quickly, so if you’re in love, jump on it now! The ruffles are adorable.

Oooh! This is the same material as that cream-colored top featured earlier in this post. Love the blush color, but it’s also available in cream and green.

Always coming back to this Emerson Fry dress…

Here it is in the cream!
