Love List

Happy Monday!!!

Our backyard turned into a winter wonderland over night and my kids have their first snow day today...we are loving it!  I'm staying warm by the fire and enjoying some downtime this morning so I thought it was the perfect time to share another love list! I've recently picked up a few things I'm really loving so I thought I'd share them with you...good things are meant to be shared, right?!


1.
Faux Fur Collar Coat
Forever 21


Living in the mid-west, I wear coats every single day for months on end so I never worry about getting my money's worth from a coat. Especially if I can find a ridiculously cute coat for under $60! Actually with the discount code I had this one only cost about $45...even better!  I bought this in an x-small (it's from the LOVE 21 line which runs slightly larger than Forever 21's main line) and it fits like a glove!  It looks much more expensive than it really was, for sure!  I can see this looking so cute with dresses, skirts and skinny jeans!


2.
 Knit Cowl-Neck Sweater (in powder pink)
H&M



After seeing a picture on Instagram of the cutest cowl neck sweater/jeans/boot look I have not been able to get it out of my head and have wanted to re-create it.  An H&M opened up at our nearest mall just a few weeks ago so I decided to go walk through and see what I could find.  There it was...hanging on a side wall...the cowl-neck sweater I had been searching for!  I took it in an x-small and absolutely love the color!  At $29.95 this is a steal!!


3.
Rose Druzy Statement Ring
Wrenn Jewelry 


After a friend pointed out this cute shop on Instagram I was hooked! I ordered a few rings from the shop and love all three!  This rose gold colored ring however, goes with everything and I find myself wearing it all the time.  The shop owner is a stay-at-home mom who is chasing her dream and love of jewelry which I also love and can totally relate to...so before I even had the rings in my hands I loved them!  Check this shop out for holiday gifts for all your girlfriends!


4.


Every time I go to Target I quickly walk through the clothing section to see if anything catches my eye.  This cardigan leaped out to me last time I was there and when I tried it on I didn't want to take it off! It is absolutely darling and at $29.99 I couldn't say no!  It's a great neutral and will go with everything! It lays perfectly and is so flattering.....basically you need it. =)

5. 


We all know I can't post a love list without something from Piper Street!  And right now I can't tell you how much I LOVE these two skirts!  There's something so exciting about watching pieces you designed yourself (with my partner in crime, of course) fly off the shelves! These two skirts are perfect for the holidays and look so glam! I may be slightly bias, but these are by far my favorites on my love list.  Both are part of our Piper Street Holiday collection...check out the entire collection HERE...it's all fab!  And stay tuned...new arrivals are coming tomorrow night!


6.
"Canton" Over the Knee Boots by Hinge
Nordstrom



Last month hubby and I went on a little getaway to Paris by ourselves...it was amazing!  I knew the fall weather would make the temps a little cooler over there so I wanted some great over-the-knee boots to wear while there. I found these and fell in LOVE!  I can't sing their praises enough...they are my favorites! The heel height is perfect (not too low, not too high), the color is just what I wanted (in between brown and gray) and most importantly, the circumference around my legs is a great fit.  Usually I struggle with boots being too wide but these were narrow enough to not swallow me up.  I highly recommend these!!


What are you loving lately?  

Do you own any of the above items?? What do you think??

Family Pictures are coming...

It's my husband's favorite time of year again (can you sense the sarcasm??)...family pictures are scheduled for next weekend so I have been rushing around to make sure I have everything I need for everyone to look coordinated to a degree.  I certainly don't want to be all matchy-matchy but it does take a little time to pick everything out...for me at least.  

Every year I wear jeans and boots in our pictures but I decided to break my streak and wear a dress this time around!  I had been eyeing the "Patchworked Chevron Midi Dress" for quite a while and thought it could be the perfect dress for pictures, so I went for it.  I love it!  I ordered a 2 Petite to begin with for the shorter length (I have short legs and a long torso) but it ended up not fitting properly so I reordered it in a regular size 2...crossing my fingers it fits right!  

Here's what my crew will be sporting for the Christmas card pic this year (click on picture for item details):

Family Pictures-2014 by jennifoundinmycloset 


I'm going for an overall dressy-casual look this year.  I love getting dressed up but hubby and boys prefer to be more casual so we meet somewhere in the middle.

Have you planned for family pictures yet? What are you wearing?  I'd love to hear!

If you're still looking for ideas of what to wear for your family pictures this fall check out THIS post over on the Piper Street blog...we've put together six family picture set looks to give you some ideas!

Happy Monday!

Currently Obsessed With...

Hi all!

From time to time I like to post things I'm currently obsessed with...some things are just too good not to share, am I right?  

1. 


When I was in New York last weekend for Fashion Week we managed to fit in a little shopping...I found this awesome coat at H&M and just couldn't pass it up.  I am slightly obsessed with faux-leather details lately.


2.


I have the HARDEST time finding boots that fit my chicken legs.  Last year I didn't really need to buy boots as I had purchased some the year before when we moved to Ohio but after two winters some of my boots are looking pretty sad and need to be replaced.  When I came across these boots my jaw dropped...talk about PERFECTION!  The best part...the circumference is 13" (instead of the typical 15")! Perfect for my legs!  I ordered them last night and am excited to get them!  When it comes to boots I don't mind investing a little money because living where I do you need good, solid, warm shoes...I wear them CONSTANTLY in the winter!  


3.


I'm a little partial to all things "Piper Street" for obvious reasons but this top is one of my FAVES right now!  I wore it to NYFW and it was perfect!  It's great to dress up or down and the pattern is just gorgeous!  


4.


I recently stopped by Sephora (ok, I've been there like 3 times in the past two weeks) looking for some eye primer.  I've just never been able to find one that really keeps my eye make-up from smudging and helps it stay put all day.  The cute lady helping me was fantastic and gave me a sample of the NARS eyeshadow base...after using it just one day I knew I had found what I was looking for!  It is amazing! My eye make-up doesn't move and looks the same at night as it does in the morning.  It's magic!  Highly recommend this!!!


5. 


I picked up this top when I was in Nashville over the summer...I instantly fell in love!  It's the perfect boho-chic top you can dress up or down and looks AMAZING on!  I wore this past weekend to NYFW with coated faux-leather pants and black heels and it was one of my favorite looks. This top is a new fave!


6.


I have been obsessing over this shoe since I first laid eyes on it in a fall preview months ago...I just love the texture and print...not quite animal or snakeskin print but somewhere in between.  They are gorgeous!  


7. 


I recently picked up a few items from Baublebar and threw this in my order after seeing a similar ring floating around on a few style websites.  It is sooo cute and eye catching...and goes with everything.  Bonus! I love it!

As you can tell I'm all about a neutral palette...bring on fall and winter!  

What are you currently crushing on??

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

I look forward to the Nordstrom Anniversary sale every year.  I always manage to find a few goodies to bring home and this year was no exception!  I headed out this past week to shop the sale with my good friend and found some gorgeous new fall items!

Here are my picks for this year's sale:



Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks



SO what did I actually bring home with me?  There were a few pretties I couldn't pass up:

Faux Fur Vest (Top Shop)


My store didn't have this in stock so I ordered it and it just arrived yesterday!  I have wanted a faux fur vest for years and even bought one a few years back but ended up not loving the neckline on it so I returned it.  This one, however, is a keeper!  It's the perfect shade of gray/brown and fits so well.  Sadly it's now sold out online....hopefully they'll restock!




I sort of have a thing for neutral heels and this one had me at hello!!!  It is a stunner on and I love the fun heel...you can't tell in the pictures but it's metallic!  These will look great with skirts and skinnies!




Kate Spade has the most gorgeous jewelry!  I loved this fab cocktail ring...so pretty!




Perfect to throw on when headed to the gym or a work night!



 

Love these bracelets to throw on with a stack...perfect for fall! And both are just under $18 each...steal!!!  I couldn't pass up getting one of each color.


And there's a few things I'm still on the hunt for or still mulling over...





I love Zella workout clothes...they are great quality and just really cute!!!  I would wear these a ton!  I had them both in my cart and just yesterday they both sold out online so I'm wondering if maybe I can track them down at a store...hmmm...




Another cute bracelet that would look great stacked.  This one is also sold out online now...perhaps a restock will occur???  We'll see.


Surfice Pointy Toe Pump (Steve Madden)


These heels are so eye catching and I think they would be so fun to style.  I'm still trying to decide...what do you think???


The one item I really love but just didn't work out for me was the Steve Madden "Carrter" Knee-High Leather boots in Cognac...these are gorgeous and exactly what I'm looking to add to my closet this fall but they were just a tad wide around my chicken legs.  The circumference is 14" so I thought there might be a chance but they just looked too big.  BOO!  If you don't have an issue with the circumference you should give them a try...they really are adorbs!

What have you picked up during the sale? Still looking?  Headed back for more?  I'm going on a girls trip to Nashville in a couple weeks with friends so we'll be shopping the sale once more I'm sure while we're there.  Never know what you missed the first few times! =)

**************

Since we're on the topic of shopping great deals, don't miss out on Piper Street's latest new arrivals!  We have TONS of great summer styles in the shop right now!  Plus we're releasing the MUST HAVE white summer maxi tonight in the store at 9pm EST...this gorgeous dress is amazing!


Shannon from Birdalamode looks so fab in it!  We're so excited to release it tonight!  Don't miss out!

Happy Tuesday!!!

Summer Maxi

Summer is nearly here and I am all about the maxi dress.  After a few days of wearing jeans or shorts I'm usually in the mood to change it up and go for a maxi dress...it's just so comfortable and there are so many amazing maxi's out there!  A recently wore a maxi dress I found on sale at Nordstrom and I can definitely say it'll be in my constant rotation all summer long.  I love a great short sleeve maxi (although you can't see the sleeves since I have a jacket on...it was a chilly morning)!!!


Caslon High/Low Maxi-Nordstrom (sold out online but new prints on sale HERE)
Ivory Statement Flower Necklace-Piper Street (sold out)

Have you jumped on the tribal/aztec-print bandwagon??
