Ann Taylor cape (sadly sold out, but love THIS one)  ||  J.Crew shirt (old, but similar HERE)  ||  Flare jeans (find your perfect pair HERE on major sale)  ||  J.Crew heels  ||  ASOS clutch  ||  Julie Vos bracelet  ||  Elizabeth & James ring  ||  Hourglass lips "Fable" & Dior gloss

The cape trend this fall/winter has to be my favorite.  It started with this gorgeous Club Monaco cape in this post.  I just love the ease of a cape.  It's chic, you can throw it on and walk out the door.  It's warm enough to get you from the car to the store, but not too hot to wear while shopping.  Have you bought the cape trend?  I highly recommend it!

It seemed like this weekend time was an ever present thing on my mind.  Mostly I was thinking how fast time goes by and how much we let it pass us by without being in the present.  Being in the present is difficult isn't it?  With all the gadgets and gizmos, it's easy to be distracted.  This time of year it's important to be in the moment.  With so many things to do, places to be, I'm working hard to be present.  Thanksgiving and Christmas are times to enjoy, be enjoyed, and remembered.  

A few things coincided this weekend to bring about these moments of time.  First, my Nana celebrated her 100th birthday.  What an accomplishment no?  Unfortunately we did not get to celebrate it with her and I'm not sure that she even understood that it was her birthday.  My Nana is a sweet, beautiful woman, with powder white hair.  She always wore a smile on her face.  On the other side of the spectrum, we celebrated a special time with our nuggets this weekend.  Each year we give back to children who need hope.  The nuggets, fill a shoebox with all kinds of goodies from candy, to books, and toothbrushes.  We drop them off at a church around the corner to be sent around the world (check out their picture HERE).  The drop off location was their preschool which we remember fondly.  We visited their room and my lovely Ella and Jack reminisced on their time with Mrs. "R".  Ella especially looked sad and I know she is bucking growing older.  My little "Ella B" would stay a youngester forever if she could. 

Time is a funny thing.  Sometimes it feels like it moves so slowly and in other ways, it goes by too fast.  You can feel like you have deja vu or day dream about things to come.  Give someone the gift of time this season with a beautiful watch from Daniel Wellington.  This Classic Sheffield rose gold watch is a stunner and there are so many beautiful options to choose from your special someone will love. 



It's a short week :)!  Here's to a beautiful day.

If any week I want to say TGIF, it's this week.  I've had some physical things to deal with this week and a terrible chest cold.  I'm ready for the weekend!  And. It. Has. Been. Chilly here!  No doubt about it, at 19 degrees when I'm driving the nuggets to school, it's arctic!

This Chicwish Prairie coat now has to be a favorite!  The wide and wonderful collar is so great to cozy up to since the temps have dropped.  The beautiful cut of the jacket is flattering when a lot of coats can be big, bulky, and boxy.  Can you tell I'm a little obsessed with this bag?  I just had it pictured HERE.  Next to my latest purchase (HERE), which was a total splurge, this is my go-to fall bag.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Happy Wednesday!   I was thrilled to receive this skirt and coat from Chicwish.  When I perused their shop I immediately swooned over them and thought it would be perfect for the holidays.  This midi skirt reminds me of all the beautiful holiday lights that are to come (and it has pockets)!  The mid-sleeve red coat is beyond chic (I'm wearing a small).  The color is amazing and I can picture wearing it with skinny jeans and another great pair of heels for a night out.  It also comes in this beautiful winter white.  Chicwish has more gorgeous pieces for the holidays and every day.   Check out more of my favorites below and on Pinterest!
