Fall Is Here

I spoke to my mother today, and it seems that fall might not be in Dallas yet (is it Hopsy?), but the temperatures in D.C. are dropping and no not from the health care debate.

One of my favorite things about fall, and winter for that matter, are sweater coats. In fact I will try to wear them as long as I can instead of a blazer, jacket or coat. Mr. Grove refers to my collection as daytime pajamas. Make fun of me all you wish, but let me tell you, pair a sweater coat with a classic preppy basic like black pants or dark rinse jeans, a statement handbag and some black wedges, boots or heels, and well you are the perfect combination of chic, preppy and stylish. And the bet part.....you are COMFORTABLE and WARM, and as a working mom, that is a big deal.

I haven't decided on my fall handbag purchase ( I still have a month and change before Care for Kids Card and Partners Card...read GUCCI 20% for a good cause), but here are so
me of the sweater coats and jackets I am considering from anthropologie this fall.

Its not fall yet in Dallas. Tonight it rained so the temp dropped to 78! It normally doesn't cool off until after the State Fair...which starts really soon.

I love the current cardigan! I bought it and can't wait for the weather to get cool so I can wear it.

I love these sweater coats! I can't believe I don't own one. Well, I can believe it because there was no in between weather when i lived in the wild west- it went from hot to freezin. I think I must get one this season! thanks for the suggestions!

My heart just skipped a beat when I got to the orange jacket with ruffles! I know, a bit dramatic. Great post. xxo
