So I’m sitting in the San Antonio airport right now and decided I should probably get started on Fashion Friday because once I land in Birmingham I’m going to be very busy trying to act like I’m very busy. Plus I’m hoping that Sophie and I will get to go out and eat some Mexican food. Do y’all know that Birmingham has a Chuy’s now? It makes me so happy that the Tex-Mex love has spread to the Deep South.
I feel like before I begin that I need to confess that I walked Caroline into school this morning wearing a black fleece pullover backwards. Sure, it could happen to anyone. Except for the fact that the tag was visibly sticking up right under my chin.
This is why no one should expect anything of me before 8:00 a.m. It’s a wonder she doesn’t want me to just drop her off at the curb.
But all that being said, I did spend some time at the mall this week. I even wore my shirt the right way. I think. And here are a few cute things I found. Feel free to add them to your Christmas wish list.
Listen. Do not judge me for my occasional love of A’gaci. It is a great place to find super cheap leggings and long sleeve t-shirts that have just enough spandex to keep them from getting all baggy around your elbows. Which is a major pet peeve of mine.
I walked in there the other day and saw this darling houndstooth coat. This is in no way an endorsement of the University of Alabama, although it would be a great addition to anyone who is a fan of the Crimson Tide. I just happen to adore this jacket and its kicky oversized buttons.
I have long believed that there is nothing like a little fur leopard coat to add some pizzazz to your wardrobe. I used to have this fab leopard fur coat. And then some social reprobates broke my car window in a parking garage in Austin, Texas and stole it. Along with my leather jacket from Harold’s. And all my makeup. And I had to drive all the way back to San Antonio with a piece of cardboard and duck tape on my window even though it was freezing cold and I had no leopard fur coat to keep me warm.
That happened about ten years ago. Really, I’m over it.
I love a good statement ring.
This is really similar to a sweater I bought at Steinmart a while back. And I love it. It’s the perfect thing to throw on and immediately look pulled together. Especially if you don’t put it on backwards.
This top is so versatile and I love the gray.
6. Skinny cord
If you would have told me last year that I would even be considering a pair of skinny cords right now, I would have called you flat crazy. But here I am. Considering a pair of skinny cords.
I think they’d look cute tucked into some boots with a cozy sweater. And they’re on sale.
I feel like I need to order this to celebrate Christmas. And then Valentine’s Day. It is so dang cute.
Put this together with some flannel pajama pants and I believe we have found my happy place.
9. Empire car coat
I saw this earlier in the week and just thought it was darling.
These would make me so happy. Never mind that it hasn’t rained here in over two months and that it’s rarely cold, I’d still wear these every day just because FAB.
That’s it for today. Y’all have a great Friday.
