Loving Lately

Spanx Twill Leggings
I was pretty excited when I saw these at Nordstrom yesterday, until I saw the price tag $98?! I may as well buy a new pair of Hudson's at that price. Anyone have these? I am wondering how awesome they would be on this new postpartum body of mine.

Philosophy Loveswept Perfume
I randomly sprayed this on me in Macy's yesterday and found myself sniffing my wrists all day. Smells so delicious!

 Merino Wool Swing Sweater
I have been hearing other bloggers sing this sweaters praises but for some reason I never tried it on. Well again dressing post baby is...weird. This sweater is perfect for wanting to be on trend but not too tight! And lucky me, my mother in law treated me to two as a treat! Looking forward to cooler weather and busting them out!

BP Tall Boot
These caught my eye but I didn't allow myself to try them on since I treated myself to new brown boots last fall. However I strongly believe every girl needs a pair of OTK boots.
Oversized Plaid Scarf
Similar in style to the coveted Zara scarf you can find this baby at Target with a much smaller price tag.

Fur-Trimed Down Puffer
I am going to plan more trips to the snow just to warrant purchasing this adorable jacket. Also comes in a vest version.
Kate Spade Initial Pendant Necklace
I can't part with my F necklace for Finn by Maya Brenner so logically I should just add another one. I really would like another Maya Brenner necklace but they are pricey, this Kate Spade one would hold me over in the meantime!

Fun fact: On this day in 2004 I boarded an airplane from San Diego, California to Kansas City, Missouri to visit David on a free flight from Southwest Airlines. I had no idea I had a free flight and when I discovered it I saw it was going to expire in two weeks. Southwest happily reissued the flight and in turn I booked my October 14th flight. The rest is history...


  1. That coat is perfection! Sadly it gets cold enough here that I'd have to wear it every single day, ha!

  2. i love that scarf + boots! i tried on those leggings and i was NOT a fan -- they were super tight around my stomach (even pre-pregnancy)... i get that's probably the point but eh no thanks. xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  3. That coat looks so cozy! I need to get a good winter jacket before the snow shows up here...I'm running out of time ;)
    Love the "P" necklace too - perfect for layering with your "F" one!

  4. That necklace is adorable, you need it :)

  5. I have been eying that Zara scarf for weeks, so as soon as I saw this post I hopped on over to Target's site to buy their version. Apparently everyone else did too, because the scarf is now out of stock online! Luckily I located one down the street from my mother-in-law and she's going to pick it up for me this afternoon. Oh the things we do for clothes :)

  6. Love that initial necklace! I have been eyeing one from Wrenn Jewelry with a stone and an initial, you should check those out too!

  7. Great picks! Love the Kate Spade necklace and target is great, period!

  8. Target has been ON POINT lately! I love all your picks!

  9. Aw great story! Look for the Spanxx on ebay - I found a great pair last year new for about $30 less.

  10. I am loving those boots you picked!! Love the color and how tall they are!


  11. i love philosophy's "amazing grace" scent...i'll have to check this one out too!

  12. I've been looking for a new perfume. I think I'm going to have to check out that Philosophy scent!

  13. Um, I want that entire outfit from Nordstrom! This is how I justify the price.....is it going to last me a couple years? Is it better quality than Forever 21 and Target? Yes? Okay then, I'm buying them. SO, I think that means you should buy them too :)
