Daily Covet: Lilly Pulitzer Charlene Dress in Stripes

I know it’s only early January, but Spring Fever is kicking in hard core.

I’m tired of knee boots, jeans, turtlenecks and heavy coats already.  I’m really wanting to wear lightweight dresses and sandals or flip flops, open-toed shoes and bright-colored shorts.

Obviously, there are a few months — even after the snow is gone for good — that sleeves and heavier fabrics are still in order.  That’s why this adorable striped Lilly Pulitzer Charlene Dress would be the perfect transition to warmer weather and shorter hemlines.

Daily Covet: Pink Sequin Mini

Pink is possibly my favorite color when it comes to dressing.

Sometimes, it’s hard to give it up when all the beautiful new fall colors hit the stores each year.  But thanks to this LOFT mini skirt, I won’t have to.

Pink.  Sequins.  And Mini.  Three of my favorite words — now they are all in one delicious skirt.  And because it’s from LOFT, I know it will fit great and be very affordable.  25% off the purchase price will also go towards the Breast Cancer Research Foundation®.  What’s better than looking great AND being philanthropic?

I can’t wait to play around with this little number!

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!

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.

Daily Covet: Schoolboy Blazer

With a schoolboy blazer for fall, you can go virtually anywhere.

Wear a schoolboy blazer to work with a pencil skirt.  Wear a schoolboy blazer on a date with jeans and heels.  Or wear a schoolboy blazer over a pair of cargo pants to run your weekend errands.

No matter where you wear your blazer, you’ll look polished and stylish.

I have a navy velvet blazer, but am on the hunt for a charcoal or black schoolboy blazer, nipped in at the waist, that I can wear with the sleeves rolled or not.

This cute TALULA shrunken blazer from Aritzia is perfect for my needs, and it’s inexpensive too!

What’s your must-have item for fall dressing?
