Fashion Friday: New Site & Navy!

You may be a little surprised this morning with the new appearance of EOS. We’ve been working on an update with JSGD the past month or so since my site’s code was SO DAMN OLD that we could do nothing to it to make it function better. So we had to redo it. Here is the new (hopefully improved) EOS with a cleaner look, a navigation bar and ability to reply directly to specific comments (the comment button is now at the top under the title!) Oh, plus a little portfolio imagery (some sneak peeks of the book). PLEASE be patient while we work out all the kinks! It just went live late last night and there are some adjustments to be made. That said, if you have any suggestions or notice anything not working right, please leave a comment.

In other news, my bag with Gigi New York is now available in new fall colors- the best one in my opinion is the NAVY!  If you haven’t noticed while shopping this fall, navy is the new neutral.  There’s lots out there in the bag/ shoe/ leather goods category done in the classic shade. I happen to love my bag in this shade and brought it with my on my recent trip to Nantucket and paired it with my preppy best!

Ann Taylor- Not Just for “Working Girls”

So I am in the throes of trying to pack for my book tour and I’ve been shopping like a maniac.  I’m trying to stick to a simple palette for all my outfits- black, white, leopard and hints of red- so that I can mix and match pieces (I’ll be doing a full post on how/if I manage to succeed in this feat!)  While at the mall this weekend I wandered into Ann Taylor after seeing a really great coat in the window. And I was shocked- SHOCKED- at how many things I loved in the store.  With a previous reputation of being a store for women looking for affordable business suits and professional attire, the new collection totally blew my mind (and found me at the counter checkout with four items!)  So I had to share some of my favorites and finds in case you typically skip over this store when shopping- think again!

LOVE this cable knit sweater in cream and the grey, and I bought the faux leather skirt at right- the fit is AWESOME and it looks just like the leather my real leather pants are made of!

Naturally I adore this blouse (would also be adorbs with jeans) and this poncho (which I didn’t buy and now regret).

Fashion Friday: Wrap Up

One trend I’ve been noticing this fall that I’m loving are blanket coats and ponchos. Burberry has the most coveted one (shown below on SJP) that comes monogrammed with your initials (apparently already sold out everywhere) but there are many options in different price ranges that help you achieve this style. It’s cozy, flattering to many body types and a great way to add some pattern, texture and layering to your look. First, some inspiration…

Fashion Friday: Perfectly Prepped

Ok, so I obviously have all things preppy on my mind since I am currently in the preppiest place on Planet Earth.  There is something about fall weather that just brings out my inner preppy girl.  Here are some of the prep essentials for fall (half of which I’ve already bought, like the Barbour coat and cable sweater- as seen on my Instagram).  It helps that J.Crew, harbinger of all things preppy, is having a big fall sale (25% off with code SHOPFALL)!

Fashion Friday: 25 Best Boots for Fall

With fall comes BOOTS!!!! I love, love, love fall boots- from winter snow boots to riding boots and various booties.  So I picked my 25 favorite pairs for the fall season from Nordstrom because let’s face it, it’s awesome to go to a department store that carries tons of brands versus going shop to shop.  Also, there’s a new feature here where you can click on each item when you see the icon pop up on hover. Easier than matching numbers up at the bottom! :)

Any boots you’re craving for fall I need to know about??
