The Kate Spade December roll-out is full of polar bears and monkeys. I don’t normally think of monkeys during the Winter but they sure are cute. You can have your pick of polar bears and I can’t decide between the flats, scarf, or watch.

Between the two monkey key chains, I think I like the pearl one best. You can match your key chain to your earrings too. I’ll have to upgrade my phone to have a Klondike Bar handy at all times. It’s taking all of my shopping energy to not buy the Trompe L’Oeil Scout Bag Tee and Caitlin Tee for my friends girls.

Have you checked out Kate Spade’s new arrivals for December?

Have you heard of Terrain? I’ve just recently discovered it and am absolutely in love with the site and what’s available. It’s part of the Urban Outfitters (Anthropologie) brand.

I need a new tree as my current one has seen better Christmas’s. We can’t find lights that are the exact color and have had to use plain white bulbs. The branches are starting to become loose though none have broken yet. I love the simpleness of the Illuminated Winter Tree but I want the Miniature Bulb Set in Neutral and the Copper Tree Skirt so I may have to settle for one of the smaller trees as a table decoration.

The Zinc Mistletoe Bunch is so unique and unexpected. I would never be looking for silver-colored mistletoe. The Milk Glass Ornaments are gorgeous and come in 4 colors. I would choose the Mint and Milk. The Mistletoe Rotary Candleholder reminds me of a similar one we had from Germany. I loved to sit there and watch the carousel we had spin around just from the heat of the flames.

I’m not crafty enough to make them but I think a wreath brings a little bit of outside in to your home. Terrain has quite a few that I like and some that will blend in with my Holiday decorating. I have a small space in the kitchen that needs a little something extra. Both the Preserved Cedar Star Wreath and the Orange Artichoke and Bay Wreath will fit perfectly in that spot. I love the simpleness of the Dried Cotton Wreath. I can wrap some festive ribbon around for the Holidays and then remove it for use the rest of the year.

Most of the wreaths are made upon order so you shouldn’t wait until the last minute to get yours. I like that a lot of items Terrain has are simple and natural.
Have you shopped Terrain yet?

Through tonight you can use code LAYERUP to take 40% off Final Sale items at J Crew. It looks like they are trying to clear some things out to make room for new arrivals this week. If they really wanted to clear things out they should have left out the “final sale” part of the promo.

My best friend is having a “0” birthday next month and though I have enough going out outfits I think the Washed Lamé Pull-on Pant would be perfect for an night of dinner and dancing. I also liked the Faux-Leather Pocket Shift Dress when I tried it on. I don’t need another sweatshirt but the Graphic Floral Sweatshirt nets $29.99 with the promo.

I am still in love with the Carrie Cami in Watercolor Floral. I took a size 8 in that. The purple in the the Yarn Dyed Vertical Stripe Scarf in pretty saturated. The Two-Tone Pleated Combo Dress is on promo right now and nets $100.80. I will wait for a true sale price and promo on this dress and then order the 8 Petite.
I wear my Wide-Leg Crop Jeans constantly. They are have taken another cut and are now almost sold out in all sizes. They are TTS for me and I took them in a size 29. I wish I had caught them in my size during this price cut. The second pair I ordered were in the wrong packaging so I ended up getting a pair of Crewcuts jeans sent to me and not my Lowry Wash jeans.
I also like the Silk Slip Dress. Though I rarely wear slips, it is still nice to have one on hand. In the past it’s been rare to find one that was 100% silk so for around $36 I think this is a great deal. The Patio Pant in Dusty Dune is the only color on sale but it’s a good neutral to have in your closet. At $41.99 I would order the size 8 and have them hemmed.
Are you shopping this Final Sale or saving your pennies for the new arrivals this week?

I hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend. We’ve had beautiful Fall weather, especially in the evenings. I had to grab a little cardigan last night when we headed out for dinner. Boots and booties are next!

I was able to finally visit the Factory store last week and found some great items that did come home with me! Here are a few of my picks. I loved the Wool Fedora and bought it in Brown. I also purchased another Elephant Tee as I have worn my retail version constantly and could use a back up. I sized down to a Small in the Homespun Popover Shirt. I think that will probably be the only plaid shirt I purchase for the season.

I was excited to see and try on the Wool Blazer in Green. It and the Sherpa-Lined Utility Vest were both 50% off in-store. I bought the size 8 instead of waiting for a price drop on the Petite 10. Since the weather has finally turned I am excited to finally bring out my Sawyer Booties. You’ll definitely see them paired with my Wide-Leg Cropped Jean.

I’ll have reviews this coming week as well. And just in time too, as Factory will have a new roll-out this week.

Happy Sunday Shopping!

While the guys are watching football, let’s do a little Sunday Shopping at Kate Spade?

I am in desperate need of some good denim trousers. I had a pair from the GAP but I wore them so much they have faded. I like having an option of a dark denim to wear instead of slacks.

That Fabled Forest Shift Dress is THE questionable item from Kate I’ve seen in a long time. I can’t even…Ugh. But watch, I’ll see it IRL and fall in love! 😉

The Read My Lips Coffee mug is one of my favorites. There’s also a Bow and Macaroons to choose from as well. Shop the rest of my picks on my Pinterest Board!

I’m actually multi-tasking by shopping AND watching football. I have a ve$ted interest since I’m in a Fantasy Football league. I came in Last Place last season. I am making sure that does NOT happen again! LOL! Here’s my Team Name and Logo, created by me with a razor, some construction paper and a little Photoshop. I’m soooo creative!

Have a Great Sunday!
