I try to buy at least one scarf a season and look forward to the Cashmere scarf offerings from the men’s section at J Crew. Last year, I bought the Plaid/Buffalo Check Scarf in Blue/Gray Plaid and the Double-Faced Plaid Scarf. The Boy kept stealing the Double-Faced Plaid Scarf last year, even though the Buffalo Check matched his Navy Peacoat.

You can see a few Que Bellas from last year with both of these scarves {here}. I am glad these are back for this year. I am hoping there is a festive plaid offering this Holiday season.

Have a Great Day!

In case you missed these on Instagram here are a few outfits I’ve been wearing but never fully photographed.

Embroidered Peasant Top, 8 Petite
Loft Distressed Boyfriend Jeans, 6/28
Converse Shoreline in Black, 7 – I have to give some mad love to these shoes. These are not your regular laced low-top Classic Converse. These have a little elastic in the back at the heel so you can slip them on. Or step on them and wear them as mules if you need to be quick out the door. Also, the laces are short and already tied in a knot so they won’t come un-done. If you’re tired of ballet flats and want some Sneaks GET THESE!!

I bought a White pair towards the end of the Summer and they were on my feet non-stop. Yes, they got dirty but were (and are) so easy to just throw in the wash to whiten them back up. Then I found out there was a Gray color and I searched high-and-low for them but never could find my size. So I settled on the Black color. That was until I received a F&F coupon to Converse and found out you can MAKE.YOUR.OWN! For only $70!!! My coupon was 30% off and usually those don’t apply to the Custom or Nike ID but it did this time. (Are you reading this S?) So now I have my Gray pair. I regret it now but did not add an ID to it. You can customize the entire shoe down to the interior lining (I added little black polka dots) and laces (gray instead of white). (Shout out to Ema too who loves her laced Converse. I know you were complaining about your laces.)

Here are they Gray ones I created along with a pair of The Boy’s many Nikes.

My Bundled Bella post was just the start of several days of bundling. Here are the other two days, one blue, one black.
Perfect Shirt in Navy Check, 8 (current one in Striped)
Tippi Sweater in Houndstooth, Medium
Cashmere Plaid Scarf in Blue/Gray Plaid
I was wearing my Matchstick Cords in Sea Salt which I wore again the next day. (Nobody saw me.)

Crinkle Boy Shirt in Black Check, 8
Merino Fair Isle Sweater in Black, Medium
Cashmere Double-Faced Plaid Scarf
Excursion Vest in Black (last year), Small

Yup, the Matchstick in Sea Salt and my Harper Leather Boots. The purse is Michael Kors I found at TJ Maxx. It’s small enough but big enough, YKWIM?

I have a few more Insta-Outfits coming soon.

Have a Great Day!

Friday brought a crazy cold spell with the high temp happening at 1 a.m. and then dropping from there. It also brought rain which made the day cold and dreary. But, I was happy that I could finally bundle up, layer, wear sweaters and boots!

I added a cozy cashmere scarf, the Cashmere Double-Faced Plaid Scarf, and the Excursion Vest in Black to finish out my layering. 

Bundled Bella…that’s me!

Have a Great Evening! Stay bundled!

I ordered a few things from the latest J Crew New Arrivals. Overall, I was under-whelmed, which is probably good because I am ready for the Holiday roll-out. But these items caught my eye and I wanted to share while the 25% off $150 was still going on.

Bonded Wool Varsity Sweater Jacket, Medium, Dusk/Indigo/Garnet – I was able to grab this in the morning at the promo price of $188 before the price went back up later in the day. It was a very last minute, didn’t-think-about-it, add to my cart and I’m so glad I purchased this. My lifestyle is more casual than I would like it to be so vests, lightweight jackets, jeans, etc. are more my Winter Style than pencil skirts, silk shirts and coats. This Sweater Jacket falls into my everyday-wear file.

I grabbed a Medium because I knew I would be layering.

The outside is a bonded lambswool and the inside is lined in a super-soft flannel. I couldn’t stop touching it as it felt so cozy.

Vintage Sweatshirt in Cheers, Small – The size Small fit me well and the sweatshirt is very cozy and comfortable. I don’t think I’d size to my normal Medium as this size seems slouchy enough, so size down one. 

Medallion Tie-Silk Skirt, 8 – This skirt was the first item to catch my eye in the November Style Guide. I was not a big fan of the inverted front-pleat but this print was too pretty to pass up. And I don’t mind the front-pleat at all. This came in Petites as well but due to the length difference (17 1/2 in for Regular, 16  in for /Petites), I stuck with my regular size 8 for mini skirts. 

If the length bothers you grab the Cafe’ Capri in the same print.

The Blue Medallions are on a Black background and I already see many of my Tippi and Cashmere Tees with this skirt.

Lastly, I stocked up on a few scarves from both Women’s and Men’s. 
Cashmere Plaid Scarf, Blue/Grey Plaid – There’s just something about having your neck wrapped in cozy cashmere that makes it feel like Fall/Winter.

Cashmere Double-Faced Plaid Scarf – Cashmere, cozy, plaid on one side, Houdstooth on the other…what more could you want?

Printed Airy Wool Scarf, Burgundy/Navy – I grab the Airy Wool Scarf every year. The colors always seem to go with what I’m buying for that season/year.

What do you think of the latest new arrivals? Waiting for Holiday? Added to your Wishlist? 
Have Great Day!
