 After seeing Emily of Ivory Lane wearing this sweater I became obsessed with it. I went directly to JCREW that day and they had one small left, lucky me,  and I brought her home. Ladies this is the most comfortable sweater ever.  Perfect for Fall, it comes in navy and poppy as well. I kind of want another color I love it so much. Great for any of you preggos too because it is loose. 


BB Dakota is killing it with their jackets this year.  Love this take on the Moto jacket and the price is just as fabulous as the jacket!


I have a real weakness for Vince dresses.  They are so effortlessly cool and comfortable.  

This one is on my radar for Fall. 


Had to include this BB Dakota jacket as well.  I am a sucker for anything Ombre.  This jacket will be mine come Fall.  Imagine the possibilities with it!


I picked this dress up a few weeks ago at the JCREW outlet and I am loving it.  The colors are perfect for Fall.  I wore it while I was in Charlotte with flats but plan to pair it with my Rag and Bone Booties once the temps cool down in Charleston.  It is a great sweater dress and fits really well.


Velvet tops are my favorite because they are longer.  I love a longer tee paired with skinny jeans or leggings.  This one comes in two great colors.  It would be great layered under a cute jacket or vest as well.


My parents gave me this Missoni scarf for Christmas last year that I am obsessed with.  These are on sale 40% off which is such a steal for Missoni.  Trust me you will wear this with everything. 


I am thinking about getting this Tote for my next diaper bag and having baby girls initials embossed on it in Gold.  I checked out the bag in person and love it.  It is the perfect shape and size.  A great timeless, classic tote.

    I always love everything you post and then HAVE TO HAVE IT. My husband is going to kil me:) The JCREW sweater and sweaterdress are on my radar, as well as a pair of tall boots.

    I told you Emily was beautiful, I just go drool over her beauty and fashion daily!That bag def. needs to be baby girls šŸ˜‰

  4. Love the tote! Love it even more as a diaper bag with a monogram! Cute!!

  5. That would be the best diaper bag ever!!! I need every one of those velvet tops! Love love love!!!

  6. Love the swing sweater! May have to scoop up in navy. That bag is cool and classic. I saw it in Madewell the other day. I think the idea of gold initials would be perfect. xox

  7. Laura says:

    I have the Madewell tote and use it as my everyday bag! I will warn you if you get her initials put on it, the monogram is super tiny.

  8. Sarah says:

    I have that sweater as well and love it. I also have the merino boyfriend v-neck and it's just as amazing.

  9. Chelsea Mac says:

    I have the JCrew swing sweater in the pretty poppy color and I have been thinking about nabbing it in grey as well! You are right, such a great Fall sweater.

  10. That jacket is actually perfection, and a really reasonable price! I want it!

  11. Sara Mueller says:

    I have been wanting that sweater too, but I am trying to be really good and limiting my shopping, somewhat.

  12. Melissa W. says:

    I always forget about Madewell!

  13. Nothing like a great loose sweater, love that one from J.Crew. And the transport tote is a classic!

  14. Love that leather jacket!! And the Madewell bag – love it! Although I'd probably be too selfish to put someone else's initials on it :).

  15. Meredith says:

    What an awesome idea to have that tote be the diaper bag – and with her initials!? love it. Great finds today!

  16. I blogged about that sweater last week – so jealous you snagged one! I'm going to order it during their next sale. Love the Velvet striped top and the Madewell tote. Great idea to use it as a diaper bag! That's going to be one stylin' baby girl.

  17. Christina says:

    yes, yes, yes to that bag!

  18. I have been wanting that Madewell tote for ages! It's really the most classic thing ever. I haven't been able to pull the trigger yet, but it is totally worth it. So high quality!

  19. Katie says:

    I have the Madewell tote and it is such a perfect bag. I use it as my purse/work bag combo and I absolutely love it. Can't recommend it highly enough!

  20. Ashley says:

    i was THISCLOSE to picking up that sweater the other day – it was like 99 degrees out so i talked myself out of it – would love to see a pic of you with it on! trying to see if it's long enough to cover a bump šŸ™‚

  21. Katie Larsen says:

    I have that Madwell tote in brown and am using it for a diaper bag for my 6 week old. It works great with some cute zippered pouches I got from etsy to keep things organized. Great idea about getting it monogrammed!

  22. I love all these picks, you seriously have the best taste! I have been in the market for a leather tote and was eyeing that one from Madewell, but if you're looking for an alternative my sister told me about this NYC based company called Baggu–she said their leather totes are awesome quality leather for the price point and Cup of Jo recently featured them as well–just another idea! https://baggu.com/shop/basictote

  23. Loving that sweater and both jackets! And that tote would make a great diaper bag. The monogram would be so sweet! Are you going to announce the name ahead of time?!

  24. Megan says:

    Obsessed with stripes at the moment! Lovin' that big sweatshirt – I got one similar to this last year at Ann Taylor šŸ™‚

  25. I ordered the last BB Dakota Jasper jacket you posted last week but not from Shopbop because they were sold out. Hoping I love it when it comes!

  26. I have the Madewell tote and I LOVE it!! It would be a great diaper bag!!

  27. I have the Madewell tote and I LOVE it!! It would be a great diaper bag!!

  28. Val says:

    Loving the totes. A LOT!

  29. I contemplated ordering that Madewell bag awhile back till I saw that the initials were so small on the bag. I love that Vince dress. I saw it on eBay awhile back for much cheaper but of course it's gone now. I've been wanting a Missoni scarf forever now and everytime I go to Saks Off 5th they're super cheap! I need to break down and buy one.

  30. I love those Madewell totes…I really need to pull the trigger on one! And now I need that J.Crew sweater! It looks so comfy!

  31. Michaela says:

    LOVE that tote. Almost got it for school…and really wishing I actually had! Ha. So many cute sweaters. I think we're all anxiously awaiting fall!

  32. I have just recently been getting really excited for fall and your post is making me especially excited for fall fashion. I am trying to do a no-shopping rule for September/October but we'll see how it goes, ha!

  33. I adore that bb dakota jacket!! ahhhh!

  34. I really love the second striped tshirt. I might have to get that. That bag is the perfect baby bag!
