Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. I’ve fallen in love with this very affordable plaid print skirt, but I can’t decide what color to get! Black/white or navy/red? Decisions…decisions!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Love this fall/winter look from Kendi, and you better believe I’ll be duplicating this one before the year is over!
  3. The perfect neutral fair isle sweater. 
  4. 35 furniture finds under $200…and they’re not from IKEA! ;)
  5. Majorly crushing on this checkered plaid coat…now only if I could justify needing ANOTHER coat!
  6. Loving this floral print a-line dress that comes in two different colors. Perfect now with tall boots and later with tights and ankle boots!
  7. Get your Kleenexs ready, this is the sweetest story ever about a boy who makes stuffed animals for sick kids! I’m not crying…you’re crying!
  8. These over-the-knee boots come in brown and black, and I LOVE them! The best part? They’re affordable (well…as far as boots go)!
  9. Never have truer (or funnier) words been spoken/written about the struggles of having bangs.
  10. I need another puffer vest like I need another hole in my head, buuuutttttt this one is green and navy plaid! HELP!
  11. BONUS: Happy Election Day to my American readers! No matter who you are voting for (or if you decided to not vote at all), I hope you take a moment to think about what a great country we live in!

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. Plaid cardigan (in two different color combos!)? Yes, please!
  2. Blogger love of the week: I’m catching up on my favorites blogs, and I just had to share this cool look from Jen (but seriously…love that necklace). Perfect for work (in a non-conservative office) or weekend or date night!
  3. Some of you have previously have asked me about styling brooches, and I plan to do a post about this later this year, but how cute are these little bug brooches?! Wear them on a cardigan together or pin one on your favorite fall hat!
  4. J.Crew is killllling it with their latest blog posts…this latest one is how three different body types can wear three different styles of jeans all fall long. 
  5. This decorative pearl sweater is so pretty and so fancy looking and comes in 3 colors! Grab it during one of Macy’s many sales and wear it with everything!
  6. Nicole linked to this dress in her September budget post (and a recent blog post), and I just thought it was the prettiest, moodiest fall floral pattern ever!
  7. Facebook recently told me about this neat idea called Homesick Candles (here). The idea behind the company is combining scents that take you back to your favorite memories to make you feel that sense of home. What a cool gift idea for someone you love that had to move away from their favorite/home state!
  8. These black and white grid print pants are super chic and super affordable!
  9. I’m sooooo Type A that it’s really not funny sometimes…which is why I could totally relate to this list of 13 things that don’t make sense to Type A people.
  10. This red plaid shirt is the shirt of holiday/winter dreams…

Obsession doesn’t even begin to cover how I feel about this new black/white grid print shirt dress from Merona’s fall line (comes in other patterns too). I keep choosing to wear it over nearly almost everything else in my closet (you’ll see it again next Tuesday on this blog)!

The shape of this dress is obviously timeless and works for work and play. And the pattern itself is so classic and allows for maximum remixing capabilities, since it can work with nearly any color.

I kept it classic this time around with a denim jacket and some black sneakers that the lovely Anne peer pressured me into buying right before Europe due to this post (thanks Anne!). I had to wear them around a bit before heading out of the country (you know, to make sure they were comfy and such), and I already love them!

Nothing beats classic, comfy style!

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. Happy second anniversary to my stud-of-a-husband! He’s truly my soulmate (but not my blazer soulmate…that’s a completely different post), and I can’t wait to celebrate with him tonight!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Loving this striped dress and red purse combo by Sarah! Now I just need to make a trip to Nashville, so I too can take blog photos in front of the most perfect striped wall ever!
  3. This scallop tote is the perfect spring piece and is under $50!
  4. Espadrilles are my choice of shoe all summer long, and these stripe ones are perfection! And beyond affordable!
  5. Favorite video of the week? This lip sync battle with Jimmy Fallon and Melissa McCarthy. When she catches the animals, I lost it! You have to watch it!
  6. Number one contender for the perfect white summer dress? This one from…of course…Tommy Hilfiger!
  7. I love good advertising (I was a marketing major in college), and I am always interested in why brands come up with what they do. That being said, I think Keds new ads are perfect and empowering for girls everywhere…and make me want to get a new pair! Maybe these perfect-for-spring gingham ones?
  8. This gorgeous stripe + floral print tee is not only pretty, but it does all the print mixing work for you!
  9. 31 Airbnb rentals that make me want to pack my bags and head out! But seriously, when can I stay at the Dog House, and who wants to rent the castle with me?
  10. Give me enough gingham print, and I’m convinced that I can conquer the world. Like maybe this gingham print rain jacket?

Yeah, I just made this blog title out of a grade school rhyme.

But can you blame me? It’s Monday. I’m wearing a grid print (like sidewalks, you know), annnnnnnnnd it’s my mom’s birthday!

Happy Birthday to my mom, aka “Schmom”! Hope you enjoy your day, and I’ll try to avoid all the cracks today…just because it is your birthday! But tomorrow, I’m back at it. Watch your back! ;) #loveyou

ps. The Husband called this my “spider web sweater”. Can’t make this stuff up, folks.
