Weekend Update

Sale PSA: An easy military green shirtdress from Madewell, now 40% off, an ivory and black colorblack long cashmere cardigan from Temperley, now under $370, a simple striped cotton shirtdress with a cut out back from Free People (pair with boots and tights for fall, now $53, and this cashmere ribbed circle cardigan from Vince, now $208 (assuming the max discount of 30% off). 

Ann Taylor also has 50% almost the entire site, through Sunday. My picks include this simple and versatile black sweater skirt, this super easy turtleneck tunic, and this merino wool ruffle cuff sweater (just enough ruffle in my opinion). Enjoy!

Do you know how much I was hoping and praying that these would be Sam Edelman, or Vince Camuto , or some other decently priced brand?

Of course, nope, they are Jimmy Choo and $900. Such is my life. They’re on my wishlist for sure, although sizes seem to already be going. I love everything about them – they’d look great with both pants and dresses – and they even look pretty comfortable. Crossing my fingers to the sale gods on this one!

PS: I just realized, also available at Neiman Marcus in a full size run.
