the friday five

October 17, 2014

the friday five via M Loves M featuring J.Crew sloucy sweater, python-jacquard pencil skirt from Altuzarra, plaid Manolo Blahnik pumps, Furbish black and white spotted pillow and Top with Cinnamon cookbook @marmar

I'm ready to live in a SLOUCHY TEXTURED SWEATER like this one! The sandstone dusk color is a great neutral and will go with so much. You can also use code SHOPFALL to get 30% off!!

Have you guys been obsessing over the Altuzarra collection for Target? This PYTHON-JACQUARD SKIRT is just gorgeous, and it looks like a thousand bucks but it's only...wait for it... $34.99! Major steal!

I love wearing plaid during fall and winter! These pretty PLAID PUMPS would look so chic with an all-black outfit, don't you think?

I feel like I have home decor on the brain these days! We're making so much progress with our house and I am dying to share photos with you! This BLACK AND WHITE SPOTTED PILLOW from Furbish Studio just speaks to me. It's black and white meaning it could go anywhere, and it's so fun with the spots, yet more grown-up than just regular polka dots.

One of my favorite food bloggers came out with a cookbook, aptly-named after her blog TOP WITH CINNAMON, and I can't wait to pick it up! 

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Lately I've been dreaming of fall travel. Places like London and Paris, even NYC, are on my wanderlust list. The weather in LA is finally cooling down and I'm so ready for cool, brisk weather, although I'm worried it's going to heat up again next week! I just want to wear cozy knits, fluffy scarves and lots of plaid! This red plaid dress is so cozy though and makes me think of autumn! I'm a huge fan of the ruffled, asymmetrical hem and since the skirt is a little shorter I paired the dress with some over-the-knee suede boots. I'm ready to stomp around on some red and orange-hued leaves!

Happy Friday everyone! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? I'm hoping to catch up on some sleep after a crazy busy week. Oh and cleaning up our house! Even after doing two shoots at our place this week, it's still a mess! Yikes!

 Make sure to check back later for the Friday Five!
