{outfit} Blustery Day

Fall is one of my favorite times a year, so it should come as no surprise to you that one of my favorite traditions is going to the pumpkin patch! My family has been going to the same one since I was a youngin', Jones Family Farms (it is also where we get our Christmas Tree every year.) This year I just went with my sister and her boyfriend, but there's plenty of time to go again, so maybe the whole family will go one weekend.

It was super chilly and windy when we went, but was still a lot of fun! We went early in the morning to avoid the crowds but by the time we left the place was PACKED. It is insanity! I went a little light this year and just bought 2 small gourds and a bundle of Indian corn, only $6 for all of it. I'm sharing my outfit today and will share some general snaps tomorrow!

{outfit} Purple Leopard, Black Leather and Peggy Boots

I'm wearing a few new pieces in this outfit. The first is a purple leopard sweater I picked up at the Jersey Gardens outlet mall two weekends ago, for $19.50! Moving downward we get to this fun bracelet I got during New York Fashion Week which, up until now, I had been afraid to wear in fear of it getting caught on things. FYI: It didn't, but I had to make sure it didn't go into my ketchup pile at dinner.

Finally, we get to my feet and these amazing Phillip Lim boots I bought months ago during the Barney's Warehouse Memorial Day sale. The non-fur parts are a little plasticy looking but I think the calf hair makes up for it! They also make a plain leather version and metallic gold, but I think these are a mix of both - fun and practical.

{outfit} The Old-Timer

This blazer has been in my closet for 8 years and my love for it has never faltered.  It was my first designer buy and it's longevity proves I made the right choice all those years ago! I wore this for a quick trip to NYC last week to see a friend I haven't seen since our trip to London 2 years ago!  After that I headed to New Jersey for dinner at a friends house.

I can already tell that these boots my mom bought at Marshalls for my birthday are going to be getting a LOT of wear this Fall/Winter! They are classic, basic and super comfortable! I walked through NYC and an outlet mall in Jersey in them with no pain.  And these Mother Denim jeans are more like sweatpants because they're so soft! I'm not even sure if I should consider them jeans, but I do.

{outfit} Brown Lace

I've been "needing" a nice brown basic sweater for quite some time so when I found this August Silk sweater while out birthday shopping with my Mom it was perfect! It's a bit of a looser fit so for it's first outing I wore it with my lace skirt, since the weather is a little warmer.  I can't wait to wear it with skinny jeans and heels/booties!

{outfit} Luxe Me Now

As many of you may know, I work from home full time now after commuting to New York City for over a year and a half (thanks to my kind employers who took pity on the girl commuting for 4 hours a day.)  Since I work from home I spend a lot of time in pajamas. I know, I know, I'm a blogger I should get dressed! I do try to get dressed most days, but sometimes I just want to stay super comfortable in my pjs, albeit luxurious ones.
Ever since Luxe Me Now sent over a pair of their new slippers I've been spending all day in them! Their designs include stripes, fringes and even leopard prints so there's a style for everyone. Their first collection "The European Collection" launched for Holiday 2013 and was sold at Saks! Their "Second Collection" is currently available on their website and will be on Saks Fifth Avenue soon.

The slippers can be worn both indoors/outdoors and have a water-resistant embossed rubber outsole with ridges for traction. All their shoes also have a 1-inch wedge heel and a satin-lined quilted Memory Foam Foot-bed for added comfort! Now that is luxury for your feet! The style I'm wearing is the "Fringe with Benefits."

It's almost time to start thinking about holiday shopping, and these are the perfect gift for any of your friends/mothers/girlfriends who deserve a luxurious treat that will keep them feeling special long after the holiday season is over. Whenever they slip these comfortable babies on their feet they'll think of you!
