Fall Favorites - Chanel Jacket Swaps

Canadian Thanksgiving has come and gone, and for me that officially signals the start of fall.  Although the loss of summer weather is one of the major disappointments of the seasonal change, fall fashion is one of the greatest benefits.  Blazers, loafers, and sweaters - oh my!

Riding jackets are a forever staple, but there's something so chic about Chanel's famous tweed topper.  From fashionistas, to ladies-who-brunch, it's a must-have for any truly fashionable woman (who can afford it, that is).

Thankfully, the elegance achieved with a Chanel jacket is available in a myriad of different price points, colors, and updated styles. 

Lilly Pulitzer Hagen Jacket | Estee Lauder Lipstick in Electric Mauve | Milly Chain Trim Jacket | MAC Lipstick in Girl About Town | J Crew Maple Tweed Jacket | NARS Liptick in Afghan Red | Banana Republic Piped Tweed Jacket | NARS Lipstick in Niagara  

So pick your favorite jacket, add a fabulous shade of lipstick, and take possession of your own future!

Pajama Sets for a Night In

There's nothing better than coming home after a long day's work and collapsing into bed or onto the couch in your favorite set of pajamas.  Sure, an old t-shirt and flannel pj pants are also easy and comfortable, but there's something more fashionable and fancy about having a coordinated nighttime uniform.  Add a glass of something hot (or calming), your go-to nail color, and a great book (or stack of magazines), and it's the perfect night-in.

So pick your set, any set:
1. Brooks Brothers Pajamas | 2. Wedgewood Tea Set | 3. Pride and Prejudice | 4. Julep Nail Color | 5. Pottery Barn Throw | 6. W Magazine | 7. Vogue Magazine | 8. Grace: A Memoir | 9. Kate Spade Wine Glass | Julep Nail Color | 11. Cosabella Pajamas |  12. CB2 Blanket | 13. The Atlantic JFK Special Edition | 14.  Vanity Fair Kennedys Special Edition | 15. These Few Precious Days | 16. Julep Nail Color | 17. J. Crew Pajamas | 18. Cape Cod Lighthouse Mug | 19. HBC Collection Blanket

Tortoise Shell-Shocked

I consider tortoise shell up there with pearl, tweed, and herringbone as wardrobe pattern/texture staples.  Multi-tonal, it has the ability to complement almost any color and is now incorporated into a myriad of different products.  From shoes to glasses (drinking and sun), you can make tortoise shell your go-to pattern of choice in almost any aspect of your life.  For the truly obsessed, you can try your hand at tortoise shell nails.

I may pass on the complicated nail experiment, but I couldn't pass up these Ralph Lauren beauties (on sale!).
I mean, they're a classic....

Ralph Lauren Jewelry | Anne Klein Watch | J Crew Hair Accessories | Lookmatic Frames | Design Darling Necklace | H&M Shoes

And, frankly, whatever Grace wears is forever a classic by me!  Pearls, tortoise shell frames, and red lips - oh my!
