Fashion Friday: This Week’s Best Finds!

My random shopping notes from this week:

I went to J.Crew this week in search of pants. J.Crew pants have NEVER fit me so I’m not sure why I went there, but I must have been guided by the hand of the shopping gods because I hit gold, people. The whole line of toothpick ankle pants literally left me jumping up and down in the dressing room and not even caring that it wasn’t financially responsible for me to buy three new pairs of pants at once. I ended up justifying it as an “investment” since they will be on my body all fall. And winter, mind you, since they are also perfect for wearing under tall boots without the dreaded pant cuff roll bulging through from regular pants. You’ll probably see me and be all ” Hey Erin, don’t you think it’s time to wear some other pants?” To which I’ll reply “Hells no, not on your life.”

My Fall Uniform: my new jeans/shrunken blazer/ graphic tee/ layered chain +pearl+gemstone necklace/platform pumps/ striped scarf/messenger bag.

J.Crew Ankle Jeans

The Minnie pant is oh-so-Audrey. Going right in my suitcase for Paris because they look sleek and sexy with heels but cute and sweet with flats. Made in a super stretchy but substantial fabric they feel like wearing leggings but with more polish.

The toothpick ankle cord. I want them in all colors. Like, yesterday.

Ok, moving on. Sorry, I’m just way excited about these pants.

Old Navy’s v-neck pocket tees are soft as anything and fit like an absolute DREAM (better than Madewell’s and for 1/4 of the price since they are on sale for $7.50 each!) Buy in bulk, you’ll wear them non-stop. Pair them with a printed scarf (also from Old Navy), jeans and these adorable cutout flats you’ve got a cute weekend outfit for next to nothing!



Ann Taylor has stepped it UP this season under the lead of their new designer. No longer a frumpy, business suit mecca they have added some seriously stylish stuff tot heir repetoire.
A couple perfect black dresses- for night or day.

A fabulous short jacket and leopard shift.

Loving this blouse with ruffle front detail and this clean cut fitted blazer

The accessories look ridiculously great- the perfect pump and slouchy bootie

Platform pump and leopard flat

Both these bags are bananas!

Happy fall shopping everyone!!! :)
