A quick Friday outfit post. Enjoying the cooling and yet sunny weather that we have been blessed with last week. I like wearing new clothes, but I also consciously rotate out my old clothes so they get the love they deserve. This include shoes as well. The boyfriend cardigan was an oldie (but goodie) from Loft years ago. Even though I started migrating to blazers more, I still enjoy the casualness and comfort of a cardigan. When I'm wearing form fitting pants - like this pair - I also prefer to get a longer top to cover my bums. Oh and the sandals are definitely not getting enough wears. Mental note to myself to pull them out more often.

Fall Trend: (Faux) Leather

9/29 update: Ann Taylor surprise sale. 60% off sale items. This skirt is now $33.95 with code EXTRA60.

(Faux) leather clothing pieces are all the rage this fall. When combined with the fall color - burgundy, it makes the piece all the more irresistible. There was no reason not to have it when Ann Taylor ran its 50% off sale last weekend. So here it is. Perfect in every way - Ann Taylor Riverside Colorblocked Pencil Skirt - on final sale now for $42.44. The side panels are made of stretchy material making the skirt very form fitting. The faux leather looks very nice and odorless (which is important to me, since I am super sensitive to it). Just a great piece to add to my wardrobe.

French Connection Dress and Michael Kors Selma Satchel

Update: House of Harlow Black Leather Necklace on sale for $49. I don't think I've ever seen this necklace on sale, ever. Snatched one to try. free shipping and returns.

* Please scroll down to the bottom to see the Phillip Lim for Target items for sale*

The crazy temperature fluctuation has gotten everyone in the house sick. Well, everyone but me. But I'm feeling queesy nevertheless just because I'm surrounded by sick people. This outfit was from last weekend and I was too busy to write any blog post for the whole week. I decided to get this navy Michael Kors Selma Satchel as an alternative to the Prada tote. (Figured the Prada needs to take a break once in a while). I love the quality of this bag and it looks sturdy and very functional.

Intarsia Sweater and Military Jacket

Sale alert:
- Ann Taylor 40% off all full-price tops. No code needed. here and here. My picks: Lane Striped Shirt, Silk Blouse in 5 colors, 

Intarsia is a new word that I learned recently. It means decorative pattern, as in knitted garments, resembling inlay. It's all the rage this fall as you can see the designer knit pieces coming out with patterns, animals, and designs that are knitted in. As weather gets cooler, I can't wait to get out my good old meerkat sweater from Madewell last year and pair it with polka dot shorts and military jacket. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see some of my fascinating intarsia sweater finds this season.

Fall Tweed and Boots

A quick Monday morning post to say hello. Weekend weather was perfect. A bit chilly in the morning, so I was fully equipped with fall tweeds and boots. I must have mentioned it a million times already, but I'll say it again - I love fall! I love everything about it. The cooler air, the turning color of the leaves and the ability to create layer to my outfits.  I bought this jacket a few months ago in store for a whopping $10.50 each. I am so happy that I can use it now. I love the rich brown/black/cream color of this jacket. It's still available in some sizes online with 15% off (ONEXTRA15) here. I also picked up the Goodnight Nora color too and love the dark blue color as well. 
The boots are Madewell zipcode boots from last season. This season's Winston boots are very similar in looks, and softer in touch (yes, I tried it on in store). I love these boots for its versatility and comfort. The heel height is just right for me.  Madewell is running a 25% off select shoes sale and these boots are included. Price as marked. Free shipping. For all selections, here.

Geo Print Legging Jeans and Silk Blouse

Update (Friday): Found this Equipment Brett with Metal Geo Collar in black. Love the collar design. Such a great piece with 40% off.

It's almost Friday! And that means weekend is coming. I love short weeks. Makes going to work more durable. I love my work most of the time, but I do get frustrated and demotivated at times, and unfortunately I'm feeling that way now. I keep telling myself that things will get better. For the most time, it does, but it sucks when you can't see it.
I have stayed away from geo print pants for obvious reasons. It's hard to pair with. It tends to make my legs look fat and stumpy. After trying these Gap legging jeans on, I changed my mind. I think it's actually quite slimming due to its fit, and it goes so well with any solid colored camp shirt. I found these pants in store for $18.88 on final sale (orig. $75). I'm wearing a size 24 (which I think translates to 00 online).

On a separate sale note, Loft is having a flash sale again. extra 60% off till tomorrow morning. Some of them are final sales, so be careful.  
Ann Taylor also loaded up on their new arrivals today and is having a 25% off full price items sale. AT/Loft card holders take extra 10% off. No code needed. My picks:
- Dusk Peplum Top (the faux leather peplum is so cute)
- quilted skirt (this one is faux leather too, very Chanelesque)
- Crepe Wrap top (beautiful colors, but doesn't come in petite sizes. :( )
- Maven Leopard Jacquard Pencil Skirt (Have it, love it, see it on me here)
- Lane Striped Shirt (so classic looking, see it on Kelly here)

Ann Taylor Maven Leopard Jacquard Pencil Skirt

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a great long Labor Day weekend. Mine was filled with Musical, food, visiting friends, board games, and some house straightening. I didn't do my usual long weekend marathon shopping because I had done enough damage this month already with this beautiful Prada tote that I just don't seem to be able to get enough of. However I did use my birthday gift card (used it on the day of expiration, phew) and store credits to take home this Maven Leopard Jacquard Pencil Skirt from Ann Taylor. I love this skirt! The pattern is gorgeous. The material is a medium weight jacquard. The fit is impeccable. If you are still debating on what to get from the new Fall new arrivals from Ann Taylor, I suggest that you give this skirt a try. Currently they are running a 30% off full-price purchase sale (no code needed). I feel that the skirt is true to size, (I'm wearing size 00P here), so folks smaller than me might find it a tad too big.  The skirt is fully lined and doesn't wrinkle at all. Pretty and functional. Couldn't ask for more.

Aggie Ankle Boots (in chester brown leather or black Suede)
