Season Staples

Season Staples from J.Crew

 J.Crew is the one store where I highly anticipate diving into their style guide each month. The mix of classic essentials and bright punchy hues leaves me with an ongoing mental wish list. The brand portrays classic basics with a trendy infusion (usually through accessories) perfectly, and it fits my style dead on. I mean have you seen that statement necklace? Talk about a gasp-worthy statement piece! They never fail to impress, which these favorite pieces make fab staples to get you through the entire SS seasons.

Friday Finds {My Favorites Things of Fall}

November weather has me cozying up to oversized knits (particularly this sweater coat that I’ve been living in.), hot cups of tea, and a good read. Very Cameron Diaz-ish in The Holiday. (Cozy socks & all.)

How cozy is this scarf?

My cozy spot for reading & blogging.
I just can’t get enough of layering during the Fall and Winter months, so I’m constantly adding to my scarf collection.

Pumpkin Spice Tea. Almond milk and stevia complete this festive tea latte.
I’m in love with bow detail. This sweet little bracelet makes for chic Holiday arm candy. (A Kate Spade find at TJ Maxx, $29 originally $78!)
I’m all about subtle hints of sparkle. A great greige, Julep’s Sophie from the Trina Turk Fall 2012 Collection, and Butter London’s West End Wonderland.  I truly think West End Wonderland may be the prettiest polish I ever did see. I’ve declared it my Holiday go-to.
