Daily Covet: Boden in the USA

So, I got my very first fall BodenUSA catalog yesterday.  As my husband slept last night, I was up perusing the many pages of this fine little book.  And while it’s not quite a best seller, Boden does a great job of selling me.  Everytime.

I was thinking of cooler days and picking all the things I wanted to buy – a fraction of which, I actually will buy – and I couldn’t come up with just one… my problem more often than not.

So for today’s covet, I have put together a few cute things that I would like to be wearing when it’s time to give my Little Black Sweats a break!

Skinny Belts, $54; Rosy Melange Stripey Jumper, $98; Black Straighleg Wool Crops, $128; Navy & Scarlet Breton Tunic, $118; Navy Quilted Jacket, $138; Tan Leopard Tote, $224; Spot Cardigan, $88, Everyday Tweed Mini (Duck Egg Melange) $98; Shocking Pink Essential Crewneck, $24; Mushroom Wedge Desert Boots, $224


Wine – No cheese party

The color for fall is anything in the red wine category.  Lucky for us winos, right?

Also lucky… it’s almost everywhere you look.  Les Pommettes, Neiman Marcus, J. Crew and more are featuring beautiful hues, fabrics and details that will make wine fun – even without the cheese!

Here are some of my favorite garments, shoes and accessories, perfect for fall and right into the holiday season.

Clockwise from Left: Crystal bar ID bracelet $50.00, J.Crew $50; Red Penny Loafer, toryburch.com $250; Burberry London Silky Velvet Puffer Jacket, Neiman Marcus $1095; Kanupriya Coral Ring, LesPommettes.com $145; Peach Corset-Toe Platform, Blood Red, Lastcall.com $114.50; Prada Tessuto Gaufre Nylon Tote, Neiman Marcus $1295; Gurhan Ruby Wire Earrings, Neiman Marcus $ 5420

Daily Covet: Falling for fall… already

New café capri in wool, J. Crew $118

It’s that time of year again.  It’s 1000 degrees out for days on end.  I’m sweating before I even leave my bathroom because of the 100% humidity.

And I’m thinking about wool.  Wool pants, that is.  J.Crew is already sending me my favorite catalogs with a hint of fall dressing in them.

The adorable cafe capri in wool is back and in some awesome new colors – too many really to choose my favorite… Ok, I like the “bright dahlia” ones!

And I also like that the inseam is only 27″ so that means, I don’t need to make a trip to my wondeful tailor, Sen.

Sorry Sen.

Daily Covet: Happy Birthday, Love Louis!

I know, I know, it’s so cliché to covet a Louis Vuitton handbag.  But this particular bag has a slouchy style that is casual, yet it’s one of the most classic luxury designer handbags ON EARTH.

This means it is wearable with anything from your little black dress to your power suit to khaki shorts and a tunic.   It’s “cost per use” is really quite low!

So for my birthday, I am posting my most current covet, a Louis Vuitton Artsy MM.

Let’s hope my husband is shopping my blog this week!  After all, it’s the smaller version…

Artsy MM, LouisVuitton.com $1610
