Crew 2009 (option) // Gold Ring: Tiffany & Co. (here) // Wire Bangles: c/o Reece & Blaire (here) // Black Bliss Bracelet: c/o Eff-Y-Bee (here) // Diamond Bracelet: c/o Brina Box (here)
Shamefully, this is only my third PSL of the season.  In an effort to cut calories & cash, I have been faithfully making coffee both at home and the office.  However, I forgot to make coffee Friday morning before work and found myself in Starbucks drive-thru ordering a venti Pumpkin Spice Latte  AND one of the new tomato/mozzarella pastries.  Hooked.  I am trying to justify them now as a seasonal item {read: drink as many as you can before they take them away}
This outfit has so many of my old fall favorites.  I have had these riding boots since I first met my husband {sadly, I know the exact date I met both my husband and my J.Crew boots} and they honestly have gotten better with age.  I think they are a wardrobe staple for fall/winter and you will see them over and over again on the blog with jeans, dresses and skirts.  The vest is over a decade old {so now you know I am a clothes hoarder} and honestly, I haven't found a vest I love more since.  It's so lightweight, making it the perfect layering item for fall.  You still get the effect of the texture and structure without any of the bulk.  This Tiffany & Co. Ring is one of my most coveted pieces of jewelry.  It was a Christmas present from my parents that I begged and begged for.  It's such a timeless piece and something I know will be passed down one day.  
Newbies I am loving are these Reece & Blaire bangles.  They make the "stack" almost daily.  I just love how unique they are! 
Go Crush your Hump Day!  Thanks for Reading!
