Baby do you like my sweater?

My twenty-sixth birthday has come and gone… September is winding down, autumn is fast approaching, wool and tartan are all that is on my mind, and PSL are every girls dream.

My birthday was awesome! (For once I had a great day!) I had lunch at my favourite restaurant The Beekman Arms, in Rhinebeck, NY. For anyone in the area who is not in the know, drop what you are doing and go there now! Not only is it a Historical Landmark, but the food is amazing. Then I went down to Woodbury Commons for some shopping. I picked up some things from J.Crew and Calvin Klein. More on my haul later…

Let’s talk a bit about Autumn and the wonderful world of FW14. Autumn is my favourite season for fashion. If I could wear wool, tartan, khakis, and sweaters all year I would be one happy girl. This season I am excited to wear my flea market find in a million– the Equipment blouse, it’s a great neutral Navy/Cream collar with Hot Pink cuffs. I want to wear it with everything… Even if it won’t match… That’s how much I love this blouse. I also want to wear a lot of monochromatic ensembles i.e. Burgundy on Burgundy, Navy on Navy, Grey on Grey… endless possibilities. I have incorporated some of my latest Woodbury haul already: J. Crew: Blouse, Button UpPants, Sweater, Sweater, Sweater, Dress, Skirt. I’ve worn everything new except for the charcoal skirt. I plan to wear in with either the cream blouse or the hounds-tooth sweater. On top of all of my worn in, loved heavily, tried and true autumn clothing. I love my nightwatch tartan trousers from last autumn from Ann Taylor Loft, my J. Crew Hounds-tooth Boy Blazer (also last year), Navy Ralph Lauren dress (the price was so good, I felt like I stole it) {Also very Kate Middleton esque}, Nude Nine West pumps, DM pumps from two years ago, Halogen cashmere sweater from last winter (also a steal at under $50.00)… Or any of my other 40 some odd sweaters that I have been accumulating since I was in high school (when I thought that dressing like what we would now refer to as a hipster was cool, you know suspenders, ties, cardigans over slogan tees and big black or tortoise shell glasses finished off with chuck taylors). I also want to accessorize more, I have been wearing my watch daily… Not that I need to, with the fact that I sit at a computer all day. I try to wear earrings, for some reason lately every time I do my right ear bleeds, a lot, like scabs over and I need to wait a couple of days before I shove an earring back in my ear. What’s weird about that is I have had my ears pierced for twenty years. Wow, I can say that something has happened in my life twenty years ago… Now I feel old. And on that note it’s time to end…

All for now,
Kiki
