I had to give you a close-up of these BCBG shoes, because well, just look at these white-heeled beauties.

So, the ubiquitous Zara skorts. How cool are these? Instant polish for something so casual as a pair of shorts.

What are you wearing as the summer winds down?

Rag & Bone ‘Jefferson’ Blazer in White; Joe Fresh Soft Pull-On Pants in Cream (I also have these and love them); Gap Essential V-Neck T in Heather Gray; Zara Basic Sandals in Black (old); H&M rhinestone necklace (old); BCBG Stone Dome Ring (old); Multi-strand link bracelet (old).

So, was I right about these pants? I did a dressy and casual look. These pants are a dream to wear and very easy to mix up for different styles. Not bad for $21. I’d get more if they had more prints. But it’s just as well, getting used to elasticized waists on pants can be a dangerous thing. For me, at least, ha.

must-have pants & more ikat

Joe Fresh Soft Pull-On Pants in Cream.

From JC Penney, the Joe Fresh line. I just got them in the mail and I am officially in love. They are super comfy, have an elastic waist (no muffin top potential) and they drape beautifully. Plus, no alterations needed for length (which never happens to me). $20.99 on sale, true to size. I got the print (“cream”), in a black and white/cream combo, which will pair well with any other color.

I plan on wearing these with a slouchy tee and heeled sandals. Or strappy flat sandals (can you guess which sandals? lol). For a dressy outfit, yet still easy, pair it with your favorite sequin top. I don’t want to take these pants off.

jcp Print Denim Shirt in Ikat Print.

I also got this ikat print denim shirt, it’s TTS. I ordered a small and a medium, but will stick with the medium since the shoulders and upper arms were a little tight in the small. I love it too, but I love the pants more, ha. It also comes in plus sizes, see here.

It will look so sharp with white jeans/bottoms. This is the Pinterest pin that instigated the online shopping at JCPenney. For good reason:

I just ordered a few things for fall from J.Crew Factory over the phone. They honored the 30% off online promotion and customer service gave me an additional 25% off because I purchased with my J.Crew card. Sweet.

**8/16/13 Update**: online & in-store code CARDPERK for that extra 25% off your total purchase if you use your J.Crew card. Ends today!

The houndstooth sweatshirt was the catalyst. This print is a huge trend for fall and the sweatshirt craze is a carryover from last year. Seriously, how cute is it? I had to have this sweatshirt.

I’ve wanted a puffer vest for awhile and thought the subtle herringbone made it grown up.

And of course, you can never go wrong with something green and a little leopard.

What are your must-have’s for fall?

new shoes!

Steven by Steve Madden ‘Slater’ bootie in Black leather.

I’m so excited for my new shoes. They are great transitional shoes from summer to fall. Both are peep toes, so you can still show off your colorful pedicures.

The flats remind me of the Jenni Kayne d’orsay flats, but at a small fraction of the price. They are very comfortable and they mold to your foot shape, like a fancy wearable slipper.

The booties are HOT. I saw these at Macy’s and I instantly thought of so many outfits to pair them with. These Steve Madden booties are made in Italy and they look well constructed. I think these are a great value, even at the regular price. The leather is ridiculously soft. Don’t wait on these, I don’t think they will last long in the stores. One tip, it’s $11 cheaper if you buy at the booties at Macy’s ($149.00).

Any new shoe purchases that you’re excited about? Let me know. 🙂

Impromptu dinner with a girlfriend tonight. The maxi dress is a quick no-brainer outfit. It was a beautiful night to catch up with a dear friend.
