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: Emerging Artist, Leigh Viner

One Kings Lane often features emerging artists with some really fantastic art.   I am usually drawn to landscapes (although I own almost none!), but I also love fashion-y inspired art, as well.  Shocker, I know.

Leigh Viner was one of the artists featured recently and I adore pretty much everything One Kings Lane is offering.  Here is a sampling of my faves…  And the price points are UH-MAZING!

Insoucient, Leigh Viner, OneKingsLane.com $189-$299

Lanvin, Leigh Viner, OneKingsLane.com $199-$289

Abstractions Aside, Leigh Viner, OneKingsLane.com $199-$289

Cricket, Leigh Viner, OneKingsLane.com $199-$289

Daily Covet: Cowl off the dogs!

I have found the sweater for every occasion.  I love this slim fitting sweater with the peplum bottom, scrunchable arms and of course, the deep cowl neck.  I’m thinking tweed mini, tights that pop, some lace up booties and voila, you are day to night ready!

I just can’t decide which color I like better…

Winter Beauty Pullover (Brown), Anthropologie $128

J. Crew Erez Skirt, sadly unavailable

OH, how I love sequins!  And lucky for me, they are HUGE this year.  Anything and everything is being juxtaposed with sequins.  While on the virtual hunt for a sequin tunic to wear with some black skinny jeans, I ran across this gorgeous skirt at JCrew, one of my favorite retailers.  How fun would this skirt be for Girl’s Night Out with the back in action denim shirt and some booties or with a black cashmere turtleneck for your holiday party?  The possibilities are endless and bling is an almost everyday favorite!

Unfortunately, in the time it took me to finish up this blog from this morning, the skirt is SOLD OUT at J.Crew so will remain on my “Covet List” and not my “Season Splurge” list.  No fair!
