I was going to call this "Coffee Break," but since I got hot chocolate (and don't drink coffee) I think my choice is more appropriate. I wore this last weekend for a long overdue meetup with Lydia and Christine. We hadn't seen Christine since before she had her ADORABLE baby last year so it was great to catch up, and meet her daughter.

It was actually a super warm day so I didn't need to bring the nice chunky sweater that matched perfectly with my look. I did throw it on for a few photos though. My Lanvin sandals perfectly matched with these jeans so I was super pumped! I'm hoping to get a few more wears out of these before it gets too cold, maybe I'll wear them with socks! ;)

I'm also looking forward to many more wears for this Saint Laurent patchwork blouse! This is only it's 4th appearance on the blog since buying it last January but I've worn it at least 6 times bringing it's cost per wear down to a (still high) $58. Now that we're getting into cooler temperatures I can bring it out more and more!  The sandals, on the other hand are down to $45 (or less) and I've only had them since July.

I wore this a couple weekends ago to go shopping and have brunch at Terrain with Lydia. I had been here to shop before (during Christmas time!) but had never been to the cafe they have. I had some delicious french toast and Lydia had eggs benedict. After that we perused the store and I ended up buying a super cute pumpkin with succulents for my Mom's birthday. I wanted one for myself too but resisted! It was a pretty dreary day so I was dressed for comfort and in shoes that can get wet. I've had these boots for 3 years now (in brown too) and they're still going strong!

*Thanks to DITTO Endless Eyewear for partnering with me!* 

Love designer sunglasses but too fickle to pick just one pair? Have no fear! Endless Eyewear from Ditto is here! I've been a fan of Ditto for a couple years but had yet to try out their subscription program. One of my favorite things is their DITTO Tool. You take a video of your face turning from side to side so you can try on any of their sunglasses on your face! So cool.

I've been wanting to try their Endless Eyewear program for a while so when they contacted me about testing it out for a few months my answer was easy! The program is super simple: pick a pair of sunglasses, wear them as long as you want then swap for a new pair! Shipping is free and you have unlimited swaps. Don't worry if you get a tiny scratch, your subscription includes insurance if there are any mishaps.

At $24 per month for sunglasses and $34 for prescriptions how can you go wrong? If you like the pair you're currently testing out you can purchase for 15% off. Sign up for Endless Eyewear with code CLOSETFASHIONENDLESSDITTO to get your first month FREE!

Normally I go for classic styles but since there was no pressure to keep them I decided to try out a "wacky" pair by Miu Miu for my first pick! I might try these fun Selima Optique's next, or maybe this Ray-Ban pair.

And Lydia and I coordinated by accident so we had to take a photo together:
I told you I loved these shorts!! This is what I wore last Sunday to go to the Tanger Outlets with Lydia. We both had a gift card to finish using so we were on a mission! I ended up buying marshmallow roasting sticks, a sifter (for baking) and a black bikini from Old Navy (top & bottom).  I've been wanting a black suit for a quite some time and while this one isn't perfect it will do for now. Gotta love free. Yay gift cards!

After we went shopping I headed home for our early 4th of July celebration with the other side of the family. It was a small gathering and we ordered pizza, but it was a nice low-key evening. Just how I like it!

I wore this on a VERY windy day two weekends ago to watch Lydia in a panel at South Moon Under in Westport.  They did a fashion police panel and then answered audience questions about style and breaking into the industry.  After the event we braved the wind for outfit photos and finished off the afternoon with ramen at Mecha Noodle Bar and some shopping at Marshalls where I successfully resisted buying an adorable tank top!

Originally I wasn't too keen on the pairing of my bomber with this shirt dress but in the end I really like the combo! Although, with the wind, I had to keep holding down my dress to avoid a wardrobe malfunction!
