This week I got my first Lush classic roll tab tunic and I will definitely be buying this in more colors!!! This week it's on sale here and also here. You probably want to size down. I'm 5'8" and wearing an XS. I ordered a small also to compare and that one is too big (I'm rarely an XS, normally an S and sometimes a M.) Length is nice and long even with XS, and you can wear it with leggings.

I also got these gorgeous Frye Melissa zip back boots. I ordered from the Rack but they're no longer in stock there (worth checking back though.) You may want to go up half a size on these - they run a little tighter than my other Fryes - although they do stretch some as you wear them. Also I found the zippers were sticky at first at the bottom, so I put rubbed some chapstick onto either side of the zipper and zipped them up and down a few times to loosen them up (great trick - works amazingly well!!) They have that divine leather smell and look so nice! Shown with 7 for All Mankind skinny jeans.

Love the zippered-back look!
I ordered this Patagonia Better Sweater for my son. It's in between a sweater and a jacket. Since it's not quite Winter-jacket-weather yet, he layers this with his blue North Face fur-lined hoodie. Great for days when it's really cold in the morning but warms up later in the day. He's 11 and wearing a large, which fits perfect!

A couple of GREAT gift-y things I picked up (but I bought them for myself!) Got an insulated Yeti coffee mug, since I was sick of having to microwave my coffee 3 times (they come in a bunch of color options - make sure to buy only from the seller "Yeti Authorized" since they are currently the only authorized dealer on Amazon.) Also bought some Death Wish Coffee - which is quite tasty (strong!!!) and I'm a sucker for great package design!

Another cool gift, for those who want to be more environmentally-friendly - reusable, all cotton produce bags! You get a big set of 9 in various sizes (which is plenty for us.) My husband was excited about these (which is good, since he's the one who usually gets stuck doing the shopping!)

Got a great deal on these off-season Toms from Nordstrom Rack - they run true to size and they are very comfy (surprisingly). They seem to keep restocking different styles. If you're going to be shopping the Rack, make sure to check out the steals on Brooks running shoes and Barefoot Dreams blankets too!

Last but not least, I got three delicious (well I've only tried one, but that one IS delicious) bottles of wine from Firstleaf for under $20!!!! This is an intro offer, after that you'll be enrolled for future deliveries at about $15 per bottle, including shipping. I'm going to continue mine since it's both easy and cost-effective, but you can cancel any time after getting the initial shipment. Wine makes a great gift too!

It's October, so time to put away all the Summer tees and get out our sweaters and boots!! Here are some of my (mostly very recent) purchases that I've been extremely happy with!

Above wearing my extremely SOFT, cozy, amazing sweater from Barefoot Dreams. Lots of options at Nordstrom - (including socks!!!) also a few options currently marked down at Nordstrom Rack (limited sizes in the cardigans at the time I'm posting, but they have robes too!!!) I'm usually a S but went with a M in in the Cozychic style because it runs a little tight in the arms. M is absolutely perfect, and it washes well too. Also shown - Hunter boots (often marked down in various colors here.) Dark wash Levi's pull on jeans and a white BP tee.

Speaking of Barefoot Dreams, they make these incredible, soft, beautiful blankets too!!! Get them at Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack when in stock. These would make a perfect holiday gift. Everyone fights over this one at my house so I just ordered another.

I just got this Naketano jacket - it's so well-made (nice detailing, flowered lining and little touches, the inside of the hood is super soft.) As of the time I'm writing this, this exact style of jacket is sold out, but there are over 1,000 other Naketano items on Amazon. Note that the hoodies run really small so size up TWO sizes on those - but I find the jackets are pretty true to size. I'm wearing my normal size, small, in the pic above. Also note.. this is a German brand and some of the names are a bit, er... obscene. You'll see what I mean if you look at enough of them.

Shown here, Athleta tank (love these, they are nice and long for us tall people!), Oalka leggings (similar to Lululemon but way less expensive!) and Brooks sneakers, which you can often score a great deal on at the Rack.

Best inexpensive jeans ever!!! You can find the  lighter wash of these Levi's here (click 'more' in the listing to see all sizes available) and both the  lighter or darker wash here. However, they are often out of stock or backordered due to their popularity. Very comfy, look great, and there is no hardware (snaps, zippers) to dig into your waist. They have a soft, thick waistband too. 

The  Frye boots I'm wearing are 15 years old!!! They last forever with a trip to the cobbler every year or two. 

Get the Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palette  here or  here or this  other set here - all on sale! Goes on easily, stays on ALL. DAY. Gorgeous colors for Fall!! I have several of these and cannot get enough of them! It's hard to see scale from the photo, but these are quite large. 

The perfect shoes for Spring, Summer and into Fall  Converse Shorelines. They're  on sale today here! I have two colors so far and I feel like I need to get  red ones too!
