October Wish List + Two Major Sales

October Wish List

Happy Friday! This week has been chilly but extra sunny and beautiful, my favorite kind of fall weather. It makes me so so happy. The leaves in Connecticut are starting to turn, and everything is feeling quite festive with the change in season. I spent yesterday morning decorating my front steps with mums and pumpkins and I get unreasonably excited whenever I come home and see it all.

I have had my eye on all of the cozy things for October including my favorite fall candle that I always buy around this time of year and burn through the winter. It smells like a fireplace and I love it. It’s also velvet bow season (yasss!) and J.Crew made a bigger version in satin this year which I’m loving. Mine is already on the way! For a more affordable velvet bow hair tie, Factory has one for only $8.50.

Scroll down for my full wish list and info on two big sales that you definitely don’t want to miss. And be sure to come back on Monday because my Dudley Stephens mommy and me fleeces are dropping at 7am and I’ll be revealing the color here first. Seriously I can’t wait to share this with you guys!

Two Killer Sales
J.Crew: 40% off coats, sweaters, and boots plus 25% off everything else with code BUNDLEUP. Last week when I posted my favorites from their site, outerwear was excluded from the sale but this time you can actually get a classic cocoon coat (I have it in Sandstone) or the Chateau Parka (I have it in red) at a pretty great price

Stuart Weitzman: Everything at Stuart Weiztman is 25% off with code FALLEVENT including their some of their classic over-the-knee boots. I wear my 5050 over-the-knee boots almost daily from November-March (although I just learned they are excluded from the sale). They make even yoga pants look extremely chic. The price tag is ridiculous for sure, but I’ve had mine for I think five years now and they last forever because I have them refurbished every spring. The Julia Boot (great name) looks very similar to the 5050 and is a part of the sale!

My October Wish List
Scarf, $59.50
Bow Hair Tie, $19.50 (Similar for $8.50)
Teddy Coat, $149
Oversized Earrings, $88
Tartan Shirt, $238
Bow Sleeved Sweater, $24.50
Leopard Backpack, $368
Something Navy Two-Tone Cardigan, $89 (Similar for $49, I have it in brown)

    Hi Julia. The Stuart Weismann site says the 5050 boots are excluded from the sale. They look like really nice boots though.

    I might have to indulge in the J Crew sale.

      I know, such a bummer! The Julia boots are very similar though (and have a great name lol!).

    Woo hoo!! The J Crew coats are finally on sale. I’ve had my wool toggle coat from there since 2003 but the lining has shredded to bits and I think it’s time to invest in a new one. How do you find that the sleeves run on the Chateau parka? I’m debating between the regular and tall and there is a 2 inch difference in sleeve length. I don’t want them hanging over my hands, but it also annoys me to have them above my wrist bone.

      Hahah sounds like it’s about time! I don’t have long arms so mine is regular and it fits me well. But not sure how the tall one fits, so sorry.
