YSL

As sale season comes to a close, I decided to make one last pass (and risk loosing an arm) to see if I could find some lingering steals.  Level 9 at Saks is currently a mecca for the true bargain hunter.  With whimsical Chloe dresses being snapped up for 80% off and once out of budget Balenciaga and Celine pieces now attainable, I decided to have one final look early Saturday morning.

Once in the dressing room with a rack full of goodies, I heard a knock at my door. “You’re not going to believe what I found” said my sales girl with the excitement of a kid on Christmas morning.  I opened the door and there hung the buttery goodness of a YSL leather jacket. I knew it would fit like a glove as I’d tried the black leather version many times before, but never wanted to pull the trigger due to the hefty price tag.

The white leather popped against black zippers and the distressed details gave the jacket that street chic vibe of a Golden Goose sneaker reincarnated in a fabulous leather jacket.  I was sold.

After some much needed time off, my little clan headed down South to spend Thanksgiving with my family.  It was Pepper’s second time on a plane and he did so well (even met the captain). It was also the first holiday without Nanna which was hard but also nice to visit some of the places we use to go when I visited.  As I was heading towards Cameron Village (our lunch spot was always the Village Deli), I noticed the gates were open to Tatton Hall-a stunning estate flanked with the last of the Fall leaves. Everything about the grounds were Southern and provided the perfect backdrop for some photos.

Neutral territory

Always one to hang on to warm weather as long as I can, I am slowly easing into Fall (at least my accessories are).  I’ve always invested in good accessories.  Bags, shoes, sunnies-all are key pieces that if purchased with some thought, can carry you through every season.  I always gravitate towards a version of a neutral as these colors are the way I go with many of my investment pieces.

The warmth of my bag and suede texture my shoes added just the right nod to Fall.
