I don't consider myself glitzy by any means, but I love anything that J.Crew does involving jewels. Somehow classic, their statement necklaces are always the answer when an outfit just needs something extra. They work just as well for daytime, under a shirt collar paired with a sweater (seen here), as for nighttime, to dress up a simple blouse. The holidays are as good a time as any to give some jewels a try, as somehow these necklaces make anything look more festive.
I have posted about Wolverine 1000 Mile by Samantha Pleet boots a few times before, but they are really worthy of their own post. I own the three pairs here- the Arc boot in taupe and black and the Bonny in dark tan. The taller dark tan ones were my first pair, which I got a year ago. They wore in so perfectly that I added the taupe ones this summer, and obviouisly had no choice but to get the black ones this fall. They're ahead of the pack in their quality, comfort, construction and styling, and are the right price for such versatile classics. Trust me guys, these boots are the very best!
I can't stop listening to HAIM and can't get over how cool Danielle Haim is. I love her signature white tees, leather and hats, and how she makes that long middle-parted hair look better than anyone. Also, she told Teen Vogue: "the Canadian tuxedo is kind of my vibe," proving that she really is a girl after my own heart.
Between the incredible views, drinking in the dining car, and the shockingly beautiful Seattle train station, taking the train turned out to be the best! I'd go to Seattle anytime and any way, but this was a great way to get there.
