OOTW: 8/25/14 -Back to Work

Sweater: J Crew | Skirt: Kate Spade (sim)  | Shoes: Lands End | Bag: LV Neverfull | Necklace: self-made

Tee: J Crew | Skirt: J Crew Factory | Shoes: Lands End | Bag: LV Neverfull | Necklace: Lucky Brand

Baking: Maple Brown Sugar cookies with cinnamon chips. Yum! I think I'll make some of these every day just so the house can always smell this good. I'm sure Husband and Child will support this idea. 

Just Bought: a bunch of J Crew Factory Claire Pullover sweaters (the Factory version of the Jackie). I hit that magical hour last night were the old markdowns still applied to the new flash promo they had going (FACTORYFLASH) which brought the sweaters down to $10.50 a piece (orig. $49.50). Um, yes please. I wanted to update some of my basics for the season, and I love the shape and less sweaty-hot material of the Claire. Night-owl habits totally Winning!

Wondering about trying: Seche Vite quick dry nailpolish. Has anybody had luck with this brand?  No matter what I do, I can't get a manicure to last Monday thru Thursday. Is that really so much to ask? Just a 4-5 day manicure to get me through the week without chips? I'm not hard on my hands, I do all the normal protective stuff--not too much hot water or extreme temps, make sure there's no oil or lotion on my hands before polish, no exposure to harsh soaps or chemicals and I buy decent brands of polish. I'm ready to give up and (gasp!) just go bare. So I've read good things about this Seche Vite quick-dry top coat, and was wondering if it's worth it.

OOTWeekend: 8/23/14

Dress: Banana Republic Factory | Shoes: Birkenstock | Bag: LV Neverfull 

Dress: via TJ Maxx | Sandals: Sven Clogs | Bag: LV Neverfull

Currently: in the midst of a week-long downpour. While the rest of the country is getting a lovely fall-ish cold front, our front comes in the form of hot, humid sticky rain. Awesome. Gotta love Texas.

Drinking: My own cheap-*ss version of the PSL (that's Pumpkin Spice Latte). Baileys has brought back their pumpkin spice coffee creamer for the season, and it's an acceptable alternative to the apparent chemical sludge that is in Starbuck's version. Wow. I'll still probably break down and drink a PSL sometime this session, because I'm all about living dangerous like that. 

Thoroughly enjoyed watching: The 2 hour Bill Maher special on HBO last night. Yeah, that's right. I'm a huge flaming Bill Maher fan. No apologies here. 

Excited about: the Joe Fresh deals I found at JCP yesterday. I found this cute stripe cardi, this J Crew look-alike plaid flannel, and best of all this dress (in blue) for only $9! I plan to fall it up with tall boots and a cardi. I had a $10 rewards card and a $20 off $50 coupon as well, so it was a damn good shopping trip.
