Back to School

I’m sending my first born to school in 6 days.
He’s excited.  I get knots in my stomach just thinking about it.
He’s ready, but I can’t believe he’s going to be gone all day, every day.  He’s been with me for almost 6 years… my buddy. my associate.  my Tomas the Train enthusiast.  my personal shopper.  my lunch date. my baby.
So, in honor of my little guy’s first day of school, I’ve put together a fun collection of “Back to School” items that any girl could show off — in class or otherwise!

Daily Covet: Luxe Leather for Fall

Good morning bloggy friends, and TGIF!

This morning, leather is on my mind… even with the expected 90+ degree temperatures where we are going!

But it’s the time to start thinking about our fall wardrobe right?!

Leather has long been an iconic style choice.  It can be rugged, like a black moto jacket.  Or more demure, like this Piazza Sempione lady coat… which happens to be my covet today.  But coming in at $4500, I may have to settle for my second favorite, which is this red quilted coat for Neiman Marcus.

Here are some other beautiful leather options from Neiman Marcus.  A leather coat or jacket for every occasion, if you ask me!

This assymetrical leather hooded jacket is another one of my faves.  Casual, elegant and unique.  So versatile!

Daily Covet: Wild for Spring Suits

This little RED Valentino suit is absolutely at the top of my list of covets.  The ever-present animal print, mixed with a mini and a jacket with modern flare can just about go anywhere.  The sleeves alone sold me on this one, and it’s so, so, so on sale at GILT.com today!

Daily Covet: 10 Items I wish Crewcuts made for J. Crew women

I just received a couple of catalogs from one of my favorite stores, J. Crew.  I’m sure you’ve guessed this by now, as I feature them frequently.

But one thing bums me out.  There are some really cute things in the Crewcuts catalog (children’s line for those of you not from this planet) that I would love to have in regular women’s sizes.

In fact, there are 10 things off-hand that I would kill to own (well, maybe mame) in my own size.  And they are as follows:

Girls' jaspé zip cardigan, jcrew.com $55

Kids Coats

This jacket is from the super kid-chic brand, Morgan and Milo, and I’m in love with it!  I love navy and green both.  Together, it’s the perfect cold-weather combo!

And it’s a 2-in-1, twill parka and comfy puffer coat, which also makes it a 3-in-1… seasons that is!

A definite must have for my middle America kiddos.
