Weekend Tidbits

I picked up these gorgeous roses and dahlias to brighten up my weekend.

I'm ready for the colder weather with a new turquoise trimmed fedora from Anthropologie.

Another regularly scheduled jaunt around Zara brings another pair of shoes to my overflowing shoe wardrobe.  I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend!

Fall Cape

Banana Republic blouse, J Crew cafe capris, Zara shoes, Moschino belt, Kenneth Jay Lane cuff

Oh how it's starting to feel like fall.  The weird thing is it's going to be summer like this weekend but my wardrobe and I are prepared for autumn.

Milly cape, Stella McCartney bagIt was the perfect fall weather for this Milly cape that goes so perfectly with my bright pink J Crew cafe capris.  I also had the perfect opportunity to wear a Stella McCartney bag that I got for a steal this past weekend (post here).

Enjoy your Friday all!

Navy and Wine

Nanette Lepore dress, Miu Miu shoes, Lulu Frost for J Crew necklace

You might remember that I went to a Nanette Lepore event a few weeks back and mentioned that I bought an item or two, right?  Well this dress was one of the things I bought.  Honestly, I saw the dress on the hanger and while I thought it was lovely, didn't think it would be right for me.  But a savvy salesperson brought it to me in my size when I was trying other things on and clearly, it did work for me. 

Zara jacket, Chanel pins, Celine bag

I wore this outfit to the Brooks Brothers event to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  I do really love this dress and it was the perfect opportunity to pair it with these fabulous wine patent Miu Miu shoes.  Final kudos go to this Zara jacket that I bought last spring which I've gotten so much wear out of.  My favorite feature of this jacket is the strong shoulder .and the camel color just never goes out of style

Transitions

Kate Spade dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch, Pour la Victoire booties

The day I wore this outfit, it was one of those days.  Nothing I put on looked right.  Everything was just a tad tighter than it should be.  And this dress is one of those dresses that hides a lot. 

Chanel necklace, Elisha Daniels bracelet

I wore this dress to the Galvin-ized Headwear fashion show (post here) and it was the perfect transitional dress since the booties made it feel fall-ish while still being cool enough for the muggy evening.

Fire Engine Red

H&M sweater, Rag and Bone jeans, Chanel flats, Miu Miu bag, Hermes bangle

Saturday's jaunt to the 'burbs for Bloomingdale's friends and family gave me the opportunity to wear this cozy H&M sweater for the first time (I also have it in navy).  I paired it with my fire engine red Rag and Bone colored jeans which are so comfy to wear. 

I really love the combination of the very bright red with camel and this red is almost exactly the same as the MAC Lady Danger lipstick that I wore.

I should also say that we ate lunch at the sushi restaurant in Bloomingales called Daikanyama.  I ordered two rolls; the cherry blossom (salmon, avocado, tempura crumbs topped with tuna) and the green dragon (spicy yellowtail topped with avocado).  I wish I had my camera because the presentation was quite lovely and the food tasted equally as good.  If you are out that way, I highly recommend it.
