I am really happy I am finally able to wear something other than shorts. It’s nice to finally wear clothes you readers have wearing for weeks – cardigans, booties, long-sleeves. I created a Polyvore of this same outfit but with the J Crew Seacomb Sweater. Unfortunately, the sweater completely covered up the Arced Crosshatch Blouse, which was not my intention. I wanted to keep the look in the black/gray color scheme and when looking through my sweater boxes I came across my J Crew Plaid Boyfriend Cardigan. So I also give you a little pattern mixing.

J Crew Ankle Toothpick Jeans 
(I have 2 pair in this color. I cannot express how much I love these jeans.)
Now, here’s a quick little Shoes-day about the Perry Peep-Toe Booties. 
I’ve had my eye on these little booties for a while. I was very leary of making a purchase because they looked like the same style as the Odeon Oxford Booties which did not work out for me because they ran small. I hadn’t seen anyone mention these until The Chic Chauffeur wore them a few weeks ago. She confirmed my suspicions that they fit just like the Odeon’s. 
When JC offered 30% off sale I ordered these in a 7 1/2 as opposed to my usual size 7. They were just a little tight in the width when I first put them on but stretched a bit as I wore them throughout the day. I like the menswear pinstripe tweed on the gray tweed. It’s such a fun bootie and I may try to wear them with Blythe Shirtdress. 
Speaking of the Blythe Shirtdress, I saw it in the San Antonio La Cantera store for $59.99 plus 30% on Thursday in both the Navy and Poppy. Also, there was one more Merino Skirt in a Large on sale and lots of the Maisie Dress in Getaway Green for $59.99 plus 30% off. Just putting that out there if you were looking for any of those. 
Have a great day! 

Normally I pass on Anthropologie sales but something I really wanted from my wishlist went on sale along with two recent purchases. And the bonus was an additional 25% off.

You’ve seen me in the Lemon Liftoff Blouse by Girls from Savoy here. There was only one left in a size 10 when I went by Tuesday. I was able to get a price adjustment and the 25% off.  I am really surprised at the deep price reduction on this blouse, especially after seeing it on Glee last week, but I guess people don’t get the owls.

Havana Fresca Skirt by Maeve – I bought this last week in a Small and wore it Friday out to dinner with an older blouse by Bordeaux and my Lanvin Espadrilles. I love the red even though it looks more pink in the outfit pic below. This is very comfortable and just feels chic. I was able to get a PA and the additional 25% off on this one too.

Arced Crosshatch Blouse from JJ by Julie Haus – The pattern and flowiness of this blouse originally peaked my interest when I saw it a few weeks ago in the store. But because of the boxiness I wasn’t sure how to style it. Luckily Anthropologie had it layered under the Contoured Crewneck sweater and tucked into the High IQ Cords.

Whirligig Dress by Velvet – Before I left the sale room I scoped out anything I might have missed originally. I found the Whirligig Dress in Dark Orange. I missed this dress completely when it was regular price and originally noticed the Medium Pink which looks more like a Wine color. The Small fit well and I think this is going to be a great Fall transition dress. The Velvet brand has always been a favorite of mine.
So, because of the 2 PAs and the additional % off I only spent $23 on the two new purchases! I can’t wait to wear my new dress and blouse. 
But first, I have to decide on what to wear to meet TIM GUNN this Saturday!!!
