This orange sweater was another perfect piece for my Autumnal trip to Vermont. The trees were mostly yellow, but you can see some peeks of orange that match the sweater. My new Remy Dooney & Bourke bag was the perfect finishing touch. I brought it along since I was taking a baking class at King Arthur Baking School and thought it would be a fun nod.

This blazer remains one of my favorite pieces of clothing and I've owned it since 2006. Technically this one is newer because I had to buy the next size up in 2013. I still have the original one because I can't bear to part with it! I bought the first one for $80 and the second was only $20! So still only $100 for 2 Marc Jacobs blazers that retailed way above that.

Not the biggest fan of how these photos turned out. My jeans are a little bunchy by my boots and I should have tucked in my shirt....oh well. I still like the outfit overall! Been wanting to break out my Marc Jacobs polka dot blazer for a few weeks and finally did it even though we had nothing special planned for the day. We did our taxes, went to the park for photos and then headed to Home Depot to buy seeds before going to my parents for dinner.


P.S. Isn't it cook how these cut down bushes look like fire?! 

Blazer: Marc by Marc Jacobs polka dot velvet jacket (eBay), V-Neck Tee: Everlane, Jeans: Current/Elliott (The Outnet), Boots: Eighteen 68 'Megan' (Gilt, shop knee-high boots), Leather Bag: Bought in Italy, Olive Branch Pearl Necklace: bought in Santorini (shop delicate necklaces)



These photos are obviously from before Halloween as I'm at the pumpkin patch, but I feel like pumpkins and gourds are still great decor all the way up through Thanksgiving. I still have all 12 (they were 12 for $20, haha) gourds we bought on this trip and my pumpkin since we didn't have time to carve it.

While I'm all for decorating for Christmas as early as you want I still like to keep it more Fall themed until closer to Thanksgiving (I usually start decorating Thanksgiving night, haha.) This year I'm decorating before - probably this week - since we only have three and a half weeks after Thanksgiving to get all our Christmas cheer out!

On to the outfit, I was originally going to go sans vest, but in the end I knew it would be a bit cold at the pumpkin patch so I threw on one of my faux fur vests to keep the chill off.

Vest: Simply Vera Vera Wang faux fur shawl vest c/o Kohl's, Double V-Neck Cashmere Sweater: Calypso St. Barth 'Gylden' (shop more v neck sweaters), Jeans: J Brand 'Mid Rise Photo Ready Super Skinny Jean' (shop more J Brand jeans), Boots: Eighteen 68 'Megan' (Gilt Groupe), Leather Bag: Bought in Italy




Decided to re-wear this outfit on a warmer day earlier this week. Can you believe I'm just wearing a tee under my leather jacket? Admittedly it was a little chilly but not horrible. This leather jacket remains one of my favorite steals. I think I need to recondition it though, it's getting a little scaly! I actually found one available on eBay too! Go snatch it up, you won't be sorry!

I also decided to break out my old ring collection. It felt a little strange to wear all my rings again after just wearing my engagement ring (and then wedding band) for months. I'll definitely start bringing some back, but maybe not all of them at once like this. Not that it's bad, but I should probably be a bit more subtle now that I'm a married woman ;)

Jacket: Theyskens' Theory (Nordstrom Rack), Tee: Cullen (Rue La La), Skirt: T by Alexander Wang ruched skirt (NET-A-PORTER), Tights c/o Wolford, Boots: Eighteen68 'Megan' (Gilt), Watch: Skagen, Sunglasses: Michael Kors (Marshalls), Bag: Dark Purple Chloé Faye (eBay)





The Original:

As is our tradition each year, we went to Jones Family Farms the day after Thanksgiving to pick out a Christmas Tree for my parents living room! This was Chrisitan's first year joining in on the tradition and since one of my brothers had to work he got the job of helping carry the tree to the bailer! What an honor, ha ha.

I wore my traditional Stella McCartney polar bear sweater for the occasion. I've worn it to get our tree pretty much every year since I bought it. I only missed once because I wanted to wear a fun new festive llama sweater. This year it was extra chilly so I layered another sweater underneath, added a vest and wore tights under my jeans.

I stole my sister's dog Teddy for my photos. Isn't he the cutest?

Vest: Ella Moss 'Nico Faux Fur Vest' (Marshalls - in black, also here), Polar Bear Sweater: Stella McCartney 'Polar bear intarsia wool and alpaca-blend sweater' (The Outnet), Jeans: J Brand Danica Moto Skinny with Ankle Zippers (Marshalls), Boots: Eighteen 68 'Megan' (Gilt Groupe), Sunglasses: Gucci, Eyeglasses chain: Tinksky (Amazon), Beanie c/o Ricefield Collective (out of business)

P.S. Someone stole one of my outfit pictures for their eBay listing for these jeans! haha!
