Wednesday Wish List + Giveaway Winner



I've been pairing sweaters with heeled sandals lately and I'm kinda into it.  I've been going with a chunky knit sweater with distressed denim, strappy sandals and a top knot for a casual and comfortable work look that somewhat embraces fall.   How are you wearing your sweaters right now?  Who else is sweating in their sweater?  Please inspire me!

I'm also having a love affair with vests and ponchos (hello this one is reversible plaid = amazing).  I don't necessarily want to be restricted by a full blazer (I find myself singing this song), but a vest can be the perfect layering piece without adding the extra restriction or unneeded warmth.  And this skirt?  I mean....no words.  It's meant to hang in my closet.

Confession:  I caved and bought these pumps for myself this week.  I've wanted this exact pair for two years and am considering it an early Christmas gift to myself.  No one tell my husband.  Actually - this could be a great test to see if he even reads my blog. I'll keep you posted on whether or not I'm lectured.

Also, all the jewelry featured above is a part of the Good as Gold collection for Baublebar that launched yesterday with a long time customer who was diagnosed last May with Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  She loves jewelry, so Baublebar partnered with her to design a special  collection based around her personal mantra " as good as gold" (since she is working hard to get her health back to being "as good as gold"). All net proceeds from her collection will go to the Leukemia and Lymphona Society. How AMAZING is that?

Last but not least I wanted to share the winner of our Bad Bad Jewelry giveaway!  She is...

Rowan Oak


While I was in Oxford, Mississippi visiting my family, I knew I had to visit one of my favorite spots, Rowan Oak, William Faulkner's home.  When we snapped these photos I had a four-day old nephew named Rowan, so it was an extra special trip!

When I was in college, I remember coming to Rowan Oak on a spring day and laying out a blanket to study from a text book - yes, just five years ago we studied from text books and not just computers.  #stoneage

I love these cypress tress that line the path to the front door, what a beautiful place to be inspired to write, right?

denim - Paige (on sale!) | boots - Frye | top - c/o L.Mae Boutique, love this one too | scarf - Zara, love this one and this one | sunnies - c/o People by People | lipstick - Urban Decay Venom | cuff - c/o Brahmin, similar here

Thanks so much for reading! XO -
