Daily Covet: Athleta Fall Dressing

Seriously, is it fall yet?

I’m ready.  My wardrobe is in limbo.  I wear a ton of linen, and it’s much too late (early?) to be wearing linen.  I have wool trousers, my favorite denim shirt and a velvet hacking jacket just screaming my name.

So, it’s no wonder that I am falling in love with this trés adorable dress from Athleta.  The material is presumably comfy and cozy.  The off-center and exposed zipper is trés chic.  And the draped collar/hood is trés unique.  That means I am wanting it trés beaucoup!

What can I say?  I’m in a dress-loving daze!

Wear it with leggings, knee high boots or tights…  I’m not picky, I just want to wear it!

Daily Covet: Leather Jacket with Peplum

I’m a fan of leather jackets, and always have been.

I think there has been maybe one jacket that I actually got rid of.  The rest of my jackets hang on a rack in my basement or in my coat closet until they are needed.

When I found this Imogene leather jacket from Tory Burch, I immediately fell in love.

The color is unique, the peplum is so right now, and I love the collarless style too.

Oh, and it matches an absolutely delish leather pencil skirt too.  YUM!

Daily Covet: Franco Sarto Riding Boots

Riding Boots.  Yep, I’m still looking for great black riding boots.

I have needed new black boots for 2 years now, and just hadn’t found the ones I wanted (and could afford!)  But I think I have finally found the boots that will replace my favorite black boots with a broken zipper.

These Franco Sarto Carlotta boots are perfect.  I love the low heel, which means they will be easy to walk in.  And the butter black leather is beautiful like a dressage boot .  AND the cool buckle detail is a little biker chick, to boot… pun intended.

I think I gotta have ’em!

Daily Covet: Missoni Umbrellas

What better way to welcome fall showers than with an iconic Missoni-print umbrella.

Missoni’s Tiffany compact umbrella has the exact print that comes to mind whenever I think Missoni.

It’s vivid.  It’s chic.  And it matches everything!

Missoni’s umbrella goes from a compact 11″ to a 42″ arc with an auto open and close button too.

Stylish and easy — rarely do you come by that combination!

Daily Covet: Initial Charms & Delicate Chains

I love wearing delicate chains with my kiddos names or initials on them from time to time.  Call me sentimental.

So I was particularly excited to see this deal from Lucky Magazine.  You can get a delicate chain, 1 large initial charm and 2 small initial charms for $34 at Moon & Lola! That’s half off , if you use this Lucky link and enter “luckydaily2” at checkout.  (And no, I’m not getting incentivized to say that!) 😉

What’s cooler?  You can find them in both gold and silver styles.

These initial charms hanging sweetly on dainty chains are super cute on their own or would be even better layered with other fun pendants and chains.

Daily Covet: Modern Tartan Jacket

Plaid.  It reminds me of Catholic schoolgirl uniforms and Scottish kilts.

But here, a cute tartan jacket with an origami shape is super modern.  These tartan jackets are the granddaughters of the wool windowpane blazers of the 90’s.  Thankfully they are lighter, more flattering and frankly, far more chic than their predecessors.

I love them paired with skinny jeans and pumps like Nordstrom shows it here.  But it would be a great holiday outfit with black satin pants.  Or schoolgirl meets biker chick with a fitted leather skirt — leather is all the rage this fall!

It’s also on the very affordable end of the spectrum too… always a bonus!

Shades of Jade

One of the hottest colors for fall also happens to be one of my favorites.  Call it “Jade”, call it “Peacock”, call it whatever you want, but call it “gorgeous!”

Here are a few of my favorite things for fall, not only in shades of jade, but in super luxe fabrics and super feminine styles.
