It’s Wednesday! The middle of the week and one step closer to Thanksgiving!!

Star prints are trending right now and no one is doing them better than kate spade new york! Their collection of starry pieces are a must see and must have!

This star sweater is the cutest! I love the stitch detailing and the pretty gold buttons going up the shoulder. It will keep you warm and cozy this Fall/Winter!

Here is some more starry goodness:

Not sure how many times I will say this over the next coming month, but as of now this black crossbody is the best holiday gift I have seen. At first glance you probably just think it is a pretty black crossbody. It is actually A HUNDRED BAGS wrapped up into one. How? You can actually change out the front flap on the bag!

Basically, you can buy the bag and then get a couple of the flaps to change out to match your specific outfit. Kate spade new york has tons of these flaps! See them all here, or see my favorites below:

Red pumps aren’t a new trend, but they have definitely come back with a vengeance. They go great with pretty much anything and it is a great way to be bolder with your wardrobe in a small way.

These red suede pumps from Ann Taylor that I am wearing here are my personal favorites. They are so pretty at a great price and you can wear them all day long.

Skinny Jeans for Christmas

Give yourself the gift of some skinny jeans this Christmas. I own these in just about every color Ann Taylor has ever come out with. Usually I go with 2 TALL since I am almost 5’11, but these I am wearing here are regular because I grabbed them in store!

They hug you in all of the right places and just fit so extremely well. They are perfect for all day wear! I have an entire post on them HERE if you want to learn more.

Ann Taylor also has some velvet jeans right now that are to die for. You can see me wearing them in grey on this post!
