    Good Afternoon, friends!

Hope you all had a fantastic Veteran’s Day! I kicked my day off with a little run, then spent the day shopping (duh) with a carrot juice in hand/planning all of my fun DIY projects coming up!

When this time of year rolls around I am all about cozy slippers, staying in and getting creative! Fall & Winter are about recharging your battery and getting into an awesome groove! By the way, just because it is getting dark at like 5PM doesn’t mean you have to sit on the couch the rest of the night… Get your booty in gear!  Get out for a walk with your babe (or furry babe), enjoy the cool, fresh air, and take a warm glass of chamomile tea with you OR if you’re feeling extra frisky, a little Irish Coffee (in this mug = everything)!! Sooooo relaxing (trust me).

So let’s get to the business.. Have you guys seen the new Piperlime site?!?

I’ve been a maj fan of Piperlime for years, let me tell you. Their free shipping/free returns policy is a LIFE SAVER. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve splurged on items online and got the short end of the stick when it comes to returns.. A lot of online retailers do free shipping, but not free returns, so you’re stuck paying $5-15 to ship back an item YOU DON’T EVEN WANT! What!?! Sucky, just saying. At Piperlime, it’s so easy. They even include a cute little green card inside with your packing slip already printed and ready to go- just in caseies.

Piperlime also always has bomb @$s sales.  I’m talking 15, 20, sometimes even 30-40% off sale merch and new arrivals. I. Can’t. Get. Enough.

So ya, 1/2 of my shoe collection is from Piperlime.

Ob-sessed.

So this week’s top five is all about Piperlime and all of the amazing need-now essentials you may or may not need to buy like now.

1. Pim + Larkin Adriene Vegan Leather Jacket, ON SALE!!!
I understand if you are no longer reading this post because you just had a mini heart attack and are already in your cart for this coat.. I mean really, $109 for a coat you’ll wear about 169497598759 times this fall/winter is nothing. I love the Vegan Leather sleeves with the asymmetrical sweater draped in the front for the perfect relaxed style.

2. 525 America Traveling Cable Knit Sweater, $225 Babes, don’t flip on the price.  As a girl in her 20’s, I have absolutely NO misconceptions about my peers being able to afford certain items.  Unless you’re independently wealthy/married a Doctor/wtf ever, you’re probably not buying this sweater if you’re on the youngish side.  I mean, let’s be real, we’re just starting out. However, I know plenty of babes that are young hotties that will splurge on key items, the trick is finding what pieces are worth the hit to your checkbook.  Ie: the perfect shoes, a DVF dress, a Chanel bag… Pick your poison, it’s all good to me. If you’re in to invest in a sweet, timeless sweater this one is amazing. If you’re game for something a little less expensive ($64!!), try this little Pim + Larkin cable knit, also amazing.

3. Loeffler Randall Rain Fenton, $195 I will make no apologies for adding a pair of LOEFFLER RANDALL boots on the top five. At just under $200, this is splurge-worthy to the MAX.  These are edgy, chic, and who can’t justify rain boots??

4. JOA Brushed Plaid Skirt, ON SALE!!! Ok- here’s my quick guide on navigating through sales… Have you ever been at a Nordstrom’s when their Half Yearly Sale is going on?  If you haven’t, let me just paint the picture.  Think screaming babies, pushy women, eyes glazed over, women literally bumping into you left & right, men sleeping in chairs…. AKA complete utter MAYHEM (ahem #WhyIOnlineShop ahem) Pretty much, if you’re at a big sale, look at every item critically. For me, it’s just taking that extra glance and thinking, “do I love this because it’s on sale, or do I love this because I love it?” Usually my inner voice screams one way or another, and I just get freaking brutal with it. I recommend being superrrr critical with yourself when sale shopping because let’s face it, who hasn’t ended up with some FUGLY items as a result of a good sale at least once or twice in their lives? Guilty. As. Charged. This little plaid skirt for a mere $34.97 is flirty, cute, fun and perfect for work during the cooler months.  Add black tights, black booties and a cute little blouse and you’re out the door!

5. Keepsake Hearts On Fire Dress, ON SALE!!! Guys, this adorable, must have dress is on sale right now for $84.. The bustier top, the mini silhouette, this dress is the perfect date night dress for the cooler months, just throw this show stopper Fur Twill Jacket over it and you’ll be warm throughout the night.

Babe Walker Babe Walker Babe Walker

Ok so remember close to two months ago when we announced our new book club??

Well, the first book chosen was Pyschos by Babe Walker.

I am now finished and want to share a little fun, self-deprecating recap!!

I didn’t realize this until after beginning the book, but this was the follow up “memoir” from Babe’s first book, “White Girl Problems.”

After reading Psychos, I’m so down to read the first book very soon! (I have a few in between I need to get to first though..)

Basically, I’m not going to do a full on book recap because A- I don’t want to ruin it for you if you’re still reading and B- you can google the plot if you really want to (highly recommend reading though). ;)

I’m just going to reflect on one of my favorite themes throughout the book, the use of Babe’s alter ego “Babette.”

I freaking LOVE Babette.

Now, at first, when Babette was introduced in the book I was like WTF…. Why? So dumb/kind of annoying/over the top. But the more Babette showed up, and the more she described Babette’s behaviors I couldn’t help but dive right in to Babette’s crazy/hilarious ways. The truth is, every girl I know has a Babette side to her personality, and it doesn’t necessarily take a “Roberto” to bring Babette out.

If you’re totally playing catch up with WTF I’m talking about right now, let me just clue you in. Babette is Babe’s crazy alter ego that she snaps into when she’s around her on again/off again BF Robert.  He makes her crazy because she loves him so much, so she occasionally freaks the F out on him and does crazy ish that can only be described as the work of Babette.

I laugh/love this because women do this a lot.. We can be the sweetest, most calm, understanding, loving, nurturing women ever, and when we are pissed (for whatever the reason) flip the F out.  I blame this on many things, but my personal fave is hormones, because that sh*t is REAL.  Men have a hard time understanding hormones because they don’t have a menstrual cycle that brings their hormone levels up and down on a daily/monthly basis (TMI? IDC.) Want more info on this complex cycle? I LOVE this article from Woman’s Day explaining the different hormone levels throughout women’s cycles and what those hormones produce.

Anywho- Babette is hilarious, and I love how real the book gets (even though it’s fiction.) I could hardly complete a chapter without seriously laughing out loud and taking a moment to digest Babe’s hilarious observations. This is a must read for the girl who wants to get real with herself.

I will be announcing the next book next week! LMK if you want to join in on the fun!!

Have a great weekend!!

There’s something that happens to girls when October rolls around… It happens every year. Every. Year.

We go from #EndlessSummer/loving our warm weather/eating watermelon/wearing flip flops every day to complete and utter pumpkin insanity/buying every candle there is/knitting scarves/making DIY turkeys/playing Christmas music.  Blame it on Pinterest, Target, all of my fave online shopping sites, OTHER GIRLS, whatever. Whatever the cause, we are down to get down with Fall like no other.

Yesterday was October 1, so you know what that means….

IT’S FALLLLLLLLLLL!!!

Love.Can’t.Won’t.Will.PUMPKIN EVERYTHING FOREVER.

Ahem. So, YAY top five with my faveeee October snags to start this season off right!

1. Urban Renewal Overdyed Flannel Shirt, $49

Fall1There is something so incredibly sweet and comforting about a flannel shirt done right.  This classic flannel can be styled in a million ways, and I love it as a layering piece, to get you through those days that start out icy and progress to warmer temps. Buy here.

2. Whistles Nami Crop Pullover, $125

Fall2Just because it’s Fall, doesn’t mean we have to tuck away the crops.  Thou shalt wear crops, forever.  This turtleneck crop is so chic and a beautiful staple for your Fall to Winter wardrobe.  Bonus- paired with this soft winter white skirt is everything. Buy here.

3. Bianca Sweater, $68

Fall3This is the type of sweater that I swear to you, you will wear about 95 times this Fall to Winter.  I can’t get enough of the color/bell sleeves/cowl neck.  It gives me goosebumps.  Can we also just take a moment for me to be Captain Obvious here?  The first three of this top five all involve winter white. I swear I didn’t plan this, but….. White!! So chic. Buy here.

4. Pendleton X UO Reversible Poncho, $198

fall4If I had kept what I originally wrote about this poncho on the first draft, you might feel like I had just a tad too much enthusiasm for this piece.  For once (in my life, ever) I’m going to scale back and be calm about this perfect jack… because I don’t need to freak out when clothing moves me.  So, in my calm voice, I will say, that this tribal ponch is killing it in every possible way and total bonus/winner of everything moment is you will wear this a billion times this fall/winter.  Think traipsing through a river bed (pictured), or sifting through a Christmas craft fair.  I mean, it’s literally perfect. (How’s that for restrain?) Buy here.

5. Nasty Gal Fast Lane Leggings, $48

fall5Leather/black goes with just about everything you are going to wear this fall.  Pair these leggings with the Bianca Sweater (above) and a little poncho (above), and you’re perfect. Buy here.

What are your favorite fall staples?

Well babes, it’s football season. (sigh).

As in, every man I know is obsessively watching football from the moment he rolls out of bed on Sunday, until he’s yelled at to get off the couch.

Sound bitter?

No… not at all..

As you can probably tell, I’m not a sports watching gal, but I’m also not a negative Nancy, so here’s what I LIKE/can get down with RE: Football:

1. THROWING A PARTY! OMGGGGGGGG snacks/drinks/infused waters/themed desserts.  Now you’re speaking my language.

2. Mimosas in the day. Somehow football makes day drinking more acceptable.

3. If I’m forced to attend a game, it’s allllll about the outfit. Think sporty, meets “I woke up like this,” meets girl next door/I totally dig sports/but not really kind of vibe.

In honor of getting through this season of football loving we all have to endure, a lil top five for my fave pieces to get you through the longggg season ahead. :)

1. Heroine Sport Boost Jacket, $185

FB1If I’m going to be braving the crowds for a FB game this season, I need a little dime like this.  This amazing jacket is made of soft French terry, and zips to an asymmetrical dream.  Throw on over your fave FB team’s tank, and you’re on your way to being the cutest FB babe around.

2. Pong Head Game, $18

FB2Okay, this is strictly if you like to party.  Think extreme tailgating/your pongs will bring all the boys to the yard. Side note: if you’re on a second or third date with a guy, and you’re still keeping up the charade that you love FB, I suggest throwing this baby in the mix.  If he doesn’t laugh/love it immediately, you may just want to end it right there.  Buy here.

3. Bailey of Hollywood Dorsan Leather Baseball Hat, $50

FB3If you’re keeping it real, as I always do, you can’t be repping a team you really don’t give 2 s&&t’s about. I mean, it’s totally cool to throw the tee on, it’s distressed, it’s fitted, I get it, but the matching cap too? C’mon… #KeepItReal. Buy here.

4. Sam Edelman Becker Slip on Sneaker, $88 (ON SALE!!)

FB4At this point you might be asking yourself, “hold on, leather?” I get it, it’s unexpected, but with all of that other neutral ish you have going on, it’s everything. Buy here.

5. J Brand 620 Super Skinny Jeans, $218

FB5

If you’re going sporty, it’s always a safe bet to go with some torn up jeans.  Buy here.
