Winter Boots

The winter of 2014 in New York, was beyond horrendous! I am hopeful that this winter will be much more mild than the last one. Last year I seemed to squeak through the winter with my trusty Hunter wellies,but on those cold snowy days they definitely did not keep my feet warm enough, so this winter I'm thinking I better invest in a proper winter boot, and with the days getting cooler I'm thinking I better order them sooner than later.
If the snow does pile up like it did last winter I am betting on these boots from Sorel to keep my feet warm and dry.

And on those wet slushy days these Sorel Out n About boots are perfect for running around town

A pair of Hunter Rain boots is always great to fall back on, I also think this pair of boots from Ugg will keep your feet warm and dry, and so will this pair from The North Face I love the cable knit detail

Shop Nordstrom for chic winter boots for every occasion. FREE Shipping. FREE Returns.

My Gift to You...

The Gift of Cash Back...

I think these days many of us do the majority of our shopping from the comfort of our livingroom couch. Lately I have been doing most of my online shopping through Ebates. Maybe it's me who is in the dark and this is not actually a gift to you, and you all know about Ebates and already use it.
I signed up for Ebates years ago and for some reason just never got into using it, but I have been wasting money all of these years by not using it. Ok, so here's how it works, you sign in to Ebates and set up an account and then you access all of your favorite stores through Ebates, and then Ebates gives you back a percentage of the sale. Some stores as much as 8% back! That is like saving on the tax, and when making a big purchase that is a huge savings!
Here are some of my favorite stores and the current promotions that I can access through Ebates.

Saks 4% back (I have seen promotions on Saks for as much as 8% back)
Nordstroms 3% back
Bloomingdales 6% back
Shopbop 3% back
Amazon 3% back
Neiman Marcus 4% back
Barney's 2.5% back
iTunes 7% back
Theory 5% back
Snapfish 10% back
Topshop 8% back
Intermix 4% back

2%, 3%, chump change you say, well I can tell you that chump change adds up quickly and every 3 months, I am happy to get back a little bit of what I have spent.

Fair Isle

What's better than a nice cozy sweater especially on a wet blustery fall day. I m so in love with this Fair Isle style sweater (30% off all weekend) from Mango, it's equal parts soft and cozy and not at all scratchy.

I can't wait to wear this with a pair of black jeans like these faded black jeans from Mother, a cool messenger bag like this one from Rag & Bone,  a great pair of booties like these Acne Pistol boots, and this adorable Beanie a perfect weekend outfit

Lounging Around

Today was our first really cold morning here in the Hamptons, 29 degrees when I drove my son to the bustop, fall is definitely in the air. On these kinds of mornings I just want to lounge around in something comfy warm & cozy, especially something cozy on my feet. I am really loving the sock trend that is happening right now, with boots or birkenstock, I love a cute cozy sock. Here are a few cozy pieces I have my eye on from Urban Outfitters to get me through the cold days of fall and winter.

I love a cozy slipper like these Minnetonka slippers for lounging around the house or to throw on to drive the kids to school or drop them off somewhere

                                             Slouchy sock

                                                            Loving the socks & Birks....

Who doesn't love a candle burning on a cold day.....
How awesome are these candles, they also make a great gift!!
You're F'N Awesome, Bad-Ass Bitch,Soy Glad We're Friends

A cozy cute sweatshirt is a staple and I love this Eye sweatshirt

What goes best with  a sweatshirt comfy pants of course

When I finally venture out into the cold you can't go wrong with a fingerless glove

My house is freezing when the weather turns I love a big scarf like this to wear around the house

Straight into Combat

In the 80's and 90's punk or grunge fashion was not complete without a pair of Doc Marten's, and it seems like this fall no look is complete without a pair of combats boots, if the iconic Doc Marten's (on sale) aren't for you maybe a couture combat boot is more your style, like these from Saint Laurent, or maybe a heeled version like these from Tory Burch, how about these from Sam Edelman,(on sale) or these from Alberto Fermani (on sale), or maybe this pair from Joie or Dolce Vita is the combat boot for you.

I would pair my combat boots with a pair of skinnies like these from Blank NYC, this great cozy cardigan from Mango (30% off), and this simple muscle t-shirt

Sweater Weather Under $40

This Boucle Moto Jacket from Forever 21 is very reminiscent of a Iro jacket that I have had my eye on but for a fraction of the price.
While perusing Forever 21 I also came across so many great sweaters like this open cardigan, this cardigan, this cool chevron zip sweater, this poncho, wait I am in love with this cowl neck tassel poncho, this zip neck sweater and this classic cowl neck sweater.

Coated Cool

Totally digging this cool coated pair of 7 For all Mankind Sportif Pants and aside from them being super cool, they are on sale at Nordstrom $235 $157.45, I do love a sale! I also love these coated Rag & Bone, love the ankle zipper.

Would pair both of them with a great white blouse like this one from BCBG and a killer pair of heels like these from Schutz which are also on sale $195 $116.99
