Fit Review Friday! Rothy's Merino Wool Loafer & The Belt Bag

  Happy Friday! Isn't it crazy that summer is starting to wind down? The end of August is coming and I always get a little sad because I do love the long summer days but I also really love fall weather. I was hoping to travel to New York again to visit my family for Thanksgiving (isn't it nuts that the holidays are only a couple of months away?) but with the Delta variant, I am not sure about traveling again. Sigh. In other news, my ban is still going strong and today I have a Rothy's review. These purchases were made a while ago. The Belt Bag I ordered back in June and the Merino Wool Loafer I ordered last month when Rothy's had their big summer sale.  Rothy's sizing reference - I wear size 5 in The Point, size 5.5 in The Loafer, (but a size 5 works in Merino Wool) size 5 in The Mary Janes.  The Belt Bag Biscotti Brown I've been digging the belt bag look these days if worn crossbody and the Biscotti Brown is a gorgeous neutral. The two colors compliment each ot

Fit Review! Rothy's Merino Wool Camel Herringbone Points

  Hope everyone had a nice relaxing weekend! I've updated the look of my blog. A few of you asked for email notifications. Click on the subscribe link at the top right corner and new posts will be sent straight to your inbox! Please let me know what you think and if you see anything funny going on, definitely let me know. I'm still playing around with it but would love to hear some feedback. Can you guys believe it's already mid November? The holidays are right around the corner. Normally I would be heading back to NY to visit my family but not this year. On the other hand this will be the first Thanksgiving I get to spend with my husband in 4 years. I was thinking it would be nice to stay at home and have a Thanksgiving meal (he will be the one cooking of course) and maybe actually put something nice on instead of my usual joggers and pullover. What are you all doing for the holidays? I really want to go back and visit my friends and family, but I just can't risk it. L

Fit Review Friday! J.Crew Merino Wool Sweater Blazers

Happy Friday everyone! It's my favorite day of the week! This week I have for you guys my recent fall purchases for work. I'm always looking for comfortable blazers and it isn't easy finding them. I didn't know sweater blazers existed until last month! Is this now a thing? Whoever came up with it deserves an award. J.Crew released a few made out of merino wool that are not itchy, at least to me. I love them so much I plan on wearing these to work a lot. Because they're made of merino wool, they are much softer and so much more comfortable than wearing an actual blazer. For reference I'm a size 4 in Lululemon tops and this translates to XXS in J.Crew or PXS. Merino Wool Sweater Blazer in Black Size XXS This sweater blazer is medium weight and made of high quality merino wool. The fit is tailored but roomy enough to layer for fall. This blazer does come in XXXS, but I think the XXS works well on me.  I totally love the large pockets. I often
