Sandy blew in... and so did Fall Accessorizing

Whew!  We've all been on pins and needles this week with the Great Storm of Sandy making her way up the East Coast.  And, we're keeping those in the Northeast in our thoughts and prayers as they make their way back to some normalcy over the next few weeks.  We hope that all your friends and family were safe.  Here in Greenville, we had quite the blustery winds bringing in some serious chilly temps - which for fashion's sake, I was thankful, as it provided a great excuse to get out a few of my favorite fall wardrobe pieces:

A Trench Coat
- Whether you prefer classic khacki, or to think outside the box with a fabulous fall shade, the trench coat is a must -have for any woman's wardrobe:

 Hunter Rain Boots:
- Short or Tall, Traditional green or bright purple, these boots - or whatever brand of rain boot you prefer take a dreary, drizzly day to savvy, sassy style!

A fabulous umbrella:
- Same as the boots, accessorizing with the perky umbrella can take your rainy skies from gloom to glee:

Cozying up...

Sweater season is upon us and there's nothing better when the weather gets colder than a warm, fuzzy sweater to keep you toasty and fashionable.  Here's a few examples that make me thankful for the change of seasons:

2 down - 2 to go - Wednesday's workweek wonder outfits.

For a week that started off wet and chilly, it's turned into some beautiful Fall weather.  With that in mind, here's a few Fall inspirations getting me through this work week:

Love her or hate her.  Anna Wintour sure knows how to rock the layering look this season.  

I love how Rachel Zoe can totally pull off the over-the-knee boots with such panache.   Can't wait to try to emulate this ensemble. 

I just look at this image and am transfixed.  By the dress, the shawl collar, the bag and most of all, the cityscape.  I feel transported to a block of glamour, if only for a second. 

Happy Humpday, everybody!  Back to work!

Fall finds- On the hunt!

I am thrilled that fall is here, the mornings are crisp and cool and the afternoons are sunny with open, blue skies.  At home, I am currently culling my closet through last year's wears.   And of course, for all those gaps made from clearing out, I'm making a "gotta-have-it" list to keep me focused on my Fall Fashion hunts. Here's of a few pieces I'm currently coveting:

I have literally been stalking an affordable/reduced pair of these Rag and Bone Newbury boots going on 2 years now.   Sadly, we had a pair walk into Labels, and they were 2 sizes too big.  But, for one lucky customer - she scored a practically brand new pair for 40% off retail price!

A creamy leather short jacket in tan would be a go-to in our milder climate all Fall through Winter.  This Theory 'Madigan - Juno' Crop Leather Jacket would be perfect with it's simple silhouette and slight angle of edginess to keep it from looking too extreme or too bland. 

Speaking of great jackets, this Kate Spade animal print jacket is a MUST HAVE for me this year.  I have always been drawn to animal prints, especially leopard and love that they are making a come-back, still-classic and sticking around for the past few years.  Love how this blogger took something very feminine and juxtaposed it with stripes for a more rocker
