Basic Cable

Click to Shop!

Hi friends, happy Monday! With the weather cooling down here in Madison, it’s quite literally sweater weather, and who doesn’t love a good cable-knit? When I think of the classic fisherman’s sweater, my mind first jumps to being around five or six at my grandparents house. Whenever I was chilly, I would borrow one of several sweaters my “Ahma” had knitted for either my mom or my aunt when they were little. They were the perfect, cozy, cabled cardigans with pretty brass buttons. Though those are long gone, they are definitely the standard I look to when on the hunt for a new sweater. I personally believe everyone should own a great cable-knit, and this season, there’s so much to choose from. It’s anything but basic cable with punchy colors, or fringe, or colorblocking, cable-knit is cool y’all. You can even incorporate it into your look in the form of leggings or even a poncho, whatever floats your boat. If you live in the Great White North, like me, you’ll definitely be requiring a chunky knit to keep you warm all fall/winter, and cable-knit is the way to go. Check out some of my picks in the list below!

So I’m clearly in a very Fall mood these days. Sweaters, coats, and comfy tees for layering are definitely all on my radar right now. I’ve mostly been “window shopping” or I’ll fill my shopping bag online and then just leave it after realizing the total is into the thousands. I did, however, purchase a couple things from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I linked them in the little widget below if you’re curious. The red Tory flats above are included in the sale as well, so if you’re in the market, go grab these (they come in black and gold, too!). I hope everyone’s week is starting on a high note! Check back here tomorrow!

Happy Monday! Here’s some of the things I’m currently coveting. I really need a new wallet, and this little Saint Laurent number is basically calling my name. I’m also mulling over getting this wallet, as it’s a little more realistic price-wise, like…$500 more realistic.

Saturday Sales

Happy Saturday! I’ve got a fun little sale round up for y’all today! First, let me talk about this romper…is it too Mob Wives? I love cheetah/leopard prints, but sometimes they can be a bit much. I think this could be a fun going out piece, but leave behind lots of accessories and opt for simpler make-up to avoid looking like Big Ang. Both shoes featured are amazing deals and are two staples to have in your closet. Now through Sunday, CUSP is offering $50 off a purchase of $200 or more! Now’s the time to buy those pieces that rarely go on sale, like Equipment floral blouses. I love this one because it reminds me of all the Yumi Kim florals that are everywhere. So cute for summer. This weekend Anthro is offering 20% off tops and shorts and I’m thinking of picking up this easy striped tunic. It’s such a good top to just throw on when you’re in a pinch. As for the jewels featured, they’re from J.Crew and are 30% off (plus free shipping!). Happy shopping y’all, I’ll be back here tomorrow talking about my favorite shoes.

Scarf Prints

I’ve been seeing a lot of “scarf prints” lately and I’m pretty excited about it. I love these classic patterns and how they’ve been reinvented with on-trend colors, ripe for summer. The scarf print is super easy to implement in your own wardrobe, even if you just use – you guessed it – a scarf. Yesterday, The Zoe Report featured a slide show on five easy ways to add a scarf to your look. My personal favorite is tying one on your handbag, a la style icon Babe Paley. I’m hoping to pick up a few items with this print and also utilize all the silk scarves I never really knew what to do with!

Happy weekend! Here’s this week’s edition of Saturday Sales! Of course, everything here is reduced in price, but J.Crew and Anthropologie have the best deals this weekend. J.Crew is offering 30% off spring sale styles, like the tie-dye linen top above. Anthro is giving 20% off EVERYTHING for Mother’s Day! That’s where you can score the stone earrings. Also, find those wedges for 40% off at Nordstrom, sizes are limited, however, so the picture is linked to Shopbop, where they’re 30% off. I hope y’all are having a nice little Saturday so far, and have a great Mother’s Day tomorrow!

Congrats Grads

Click to Shop!

As graduation quickly approaches for many, I decided to pull some easy dress options! Since you’ll be wearing the ever-flattering cap and gown, it’s best to keep your dress tailored/streamlined, so as not to add extra bulk. All of these dresses are sleeveless because, hello, May/June temps in an acrylic robe? I literally didn’t go to my August college graduation because I didn’t want to be hot. Guess I’m not really qualified to write this post, sorry guys. Regardless, this dress and this one are both good options if you want your arms covered! Keep in mind you’ll be taking lots of pictures, so pick a classic, simple dress that will photograph well. Congrats to all my soon-to-be-graduate readers! Welcome to postgrad life, it’s terrifying 🙂
