Told you you'd be seeing this Autumn Cashmere landscape sweater again soon! I wish I could wear it every day, but that would be a little much don't you think? This time I wore it with my patchwork boots because the colors all match. Might be a little odd but I think it's fun! Also decided to use my fun orange Louis Vuitton bag to pull out the orange in the sweater.

Sweater: Autumn Cashmere Landscape Intarsia Sweater, Jeans: Everlane high-rise skinny jean in mid-blue, Bag: Louis Vuitton Epi Leather Sac D'Epaule (HauteTrader), Boots: IMPO Patchwork Suede Boot (DSW), Sunglasses: Chanel

Still looking for last minute gifts for the lady in your life who has everything? If she likes jewelry which, let's be honest, most women do, find her a beautiful pair of gold earrings. I was recently introduced to sustainable jewelry brand AUrate and sent this pair of gorgeous Sensu Ear Jackets in rose gold vermeil.  AUrate has everything you could want, from statement pieces to classic staples you'll wear for years to come. I have added quite a few other pieces to my wish list including this amazing Halo Diamond Opal Pendant. What pieces would you buy for a loved one?

What's great about AUrate is their mission is to offer sustainable, ethical handmade jewelry at affordable prices. The pieces are handmade by artisans in New York City, not a machine churning out hundreds a day. These earrings were $150 and would retail at most other stores for $390. This is because they cut out the middleman and sell directly to buyers without retail markups, much like Everlane, another favorite brand of mine.

The company only uses ethical solid gold from conflict-free suppliers in vermeil, 14K or 18K gold as well as white gold and rose gold. I had heard the phrase vermeil many times but never really knew what it meant. In essence, gold vermeil is a higher quality gold plated product. A base metal, usually sterling silver, is dipped into a coating of at least 10K gold to a thickness of 2.5 microns (one-millionth of a meter.) AUrate uses 14K gold to go the extra mile.

And, to make an even bigger difference AUrate donates a book to a student in need for every purchase made! So really it's like two gifts in one. Giving a beautifully made piece of jewelry to a loved one (or yourself) and the gift of learning to a student.

Enough about the companies awesomeness, on to the outfit! I styled the earrings for a holiday event but they would also work well with a simple outfit of jeans and a sweater.  Also - you can wear these with any studs you want! I'll probably try them with some pearl studs or my usual diamond studs in the future for some extra pizazz.

Sometimes experiments fail. Such was the case with these photos. We tried out some new techniques that were supposed to be better for sunny photos and sadly they didn't come out that great. The detail shots are perfect but the full body leave a bit to be desired.

Other times, experiments work! My photographer picked out this whole outfit for me and I think it looks pretty darn good. I may have suggested the boots as an option, but they had the final decision. Maybe I'll start a new series - Photographer's Choice. ;)

This jacket is one that my siblings and I gave to our mom for her birthday a few years ago. She decided a couple weeks ago that, even though she likes it, the jacket is just not her style since she feels too constricted in stiffer fabrics. So now it's mine!

Jacket: LAUREN Ralph Lauren (similar), Sweater: Everlane cashmere crew, Jeans: Everlane "The High-Rise Skinny Jean" in Mid-Blue, Boots: IMPO (DSW), Sunglasses: Gucci, Eyeglasses chain: Tinksky (Amazon), Bag: LAUREN Ralph Lauren, Rings: Lumo 'Violet', Mejuri 'Stellar', Moon Magic 'Eclipse', Moon Magic 'Petite Double'

It's still chilly out there, folks! Hopefully Spring arrives soon, but until then I'll continue to get wear out of my favorite sweaters before they go away until next Fall! I wore this over the weekend for a quick trip to Terrain and Home Goods. Getting home inspiration is always a fun Sunday activity.

Sweater: Everlane Wool-Cashmere Oversized Cable Turtleneck, Jeans: J Brand 'Maria' High Rise in Supreme (Gilt Groupe),  Boots: Impo (DSW), Bag: Emm Kuo 'Calle Bahia' (Roundabout), Sunglasses: Gucci, Eyeglasses chain: Tinksky (Amazon)

I wore this over the weekend to do some shopping with my mom. She had a DSW coupon so I went along "just to look." But of course I found something to buy. I got these Franco Sarto mules for $20 thanks to 50% off clearance and a $5 coupon! Speaking of clearance deals and DSW, I got these boots there for $12 last Spring.

Double V-Neck Cashmere Sweater: Calypso St. Barth 'Gylden' (Gilt), Cardigan: Forever 21, Jeans: J Brand 'Maria' High Rise in Supreme (Gilt Groupe),  Boots: Impo 'Omega' or 'Onnie' (DSW), Necklace: Acanthus 'Gemma', Bag: Dark Purple Chloé Faye (eBay)

This is the first outfit that popped in my head when I thought about styling these boots I first posted last week. So far these boots are down to $6 per wear (I paid $12,) and I only need to wear them 10 more times to be at the optimal $1 per wear many strive for. I do love a good deal! Especially one that perfectly matches my Chloé Faye.
