BIG SALE ALERT: LOEFFLER RANDALL F/W SALE

 

LR sale

Happy Friday to you. This news should make your weekend a little brighter: Loeffler Randall has just launched their fall sale. Everything you see here (including my beloved Milou over-the-knee boots!) is 30% off. There’s some really good stuff in this one – everything from a must-have clutch in the perfect shade of pink to to the best in ballet flats to essential winter boots. But it doesn’t stop there…

Loeffler Randall is offering Luella & June readers an additional discount. (I told you this was big sale news!) All you have to do is enter the code EXTRAFALL15. The code is only good through Sunday night so start your shopping now. The early bird catches the worm with this one as sizes are sure to sell out quickly. Happy weekend!

Here’s what you can’t miss:

  • Remember those pink scallop ballet flats that I’ve been wearing non-stop (see here)? Yep. On sale!
  • With a perfect block heel height, this pair of ankle boots would get plenty of love over the next few months.
  • When I need a break from holiday heels, these shiny ballet flats will sub in just fine at a cocktail party.
  • Speaking of shiny, I love this mini version of the gold Ryder bag.
  • Looking for a black over-the-knee boot with some heel height? This is your pair.
  • My all-time favorite print from LR is the cheetah. Check out the print in this pair of pumps.
  • I’ve said it before: LR is a master when it comes to mixing prints. This pair of pointed-toe zebra flats is the perfect example.
  • I’ve loved my brown leather pair of these boots so much (see here and here) that I think it’s time to take the plunge on a pair of black.
  • I’m a sneaker girl. Thoughts on these?
  • I actually still really love these almost-a-Birkenstock style sandals. With Harbour Island just over a month away, now would be a great time to grab a pair.

A VALENTINO HOLIDAY

nordstrom valentino

If there’s one designer that’s synonymous with the color red, it’s Valentino. (The designer claims it as his “lucky color.”)  With this year marking the brand’s 50th (!) anniversary, I’ve been paying extra special attention to the new pieces. And what do you know? They’re holiday perfection. From the festive dresses to the wear-all-the-time flats, the selection of covet-worthy pieces is vast. Whether it’s his signature red (a bright orange-red that you see in this collared dress) or an embellished pair of heels (I’m still loving the Rockstuds) in any hue, Valentino always looks extra special this time of year. Start making your list and checking it twice…

THICK KNIT

5N2A0793

Well, it finally feels like November. We got our first dose of cold weather last week and it looks like it’s here to stay. (One never really knows in Texas. It could be 80 degrees on Thanksgiving Day and I wouldn’t be surprised one bit.) I’ve been taking advantage of the cooler temperatures by doing my favorite cold-weather things: staying in, burning this candle non-stop, catching up on my stack of mags (I finally read through the new Bon Appétit and it’s oh-so-good.), making lots of these soups, and, best of all, cozying up in my all my favorite winter-wear.

There’s nothing I look forward to wearing more during this time of year than my chunky sweaters. Is there anything cozier than a thick knit? I pulled out a huge stack from hibernation over the weekend – along with buying this new one from J.Crew, too. Whether you’re a turtleneck person (I am) or not, a good, heavy sweater is a must-have in your fall/winter closet. While jeans are my most frequent pairing, I wear mine with a mini-skirt and tights or pair of cropped pants to cocktail parties and such, too. (I have a black one that I wear with my leather pants all the time to dressier things.) Dressed-up, dress-down – anything goes with an essential like this.

SATURDAY SALES

sale

If ever there was a time to score some deal, holiday shopping it is. There’s nothing better than crossing some gifts (stocking stuffer for my husband and plenty of these for the hostesses) off your list early – especially if there’s a 25% discount involved. See below for everything you need to know to get shopping.

Kate Spade New York

Code: BEMERRY 

  • Something for the hostess: A good bottle of vino or bubbly is always a go-to. This year, I’m going to adding a special touch with these adorable wine totes.
  • Something with sparkle: This red glitter clutch would do the trick.
  • Something for the party: This dress. I love it.
  • Something for the bar: A pair of polka-dots, if you please.
  • Something for the stocking: These bluetooth speakers are just $60 and would make ideal stocking stuffers.
  • Something for yourself: I love a good bow. I’m going to pair this top with leather pants to give it some edge.

J.Crew

Code: SHOPNOW 

  • Something red: I already snatched up this cozy turtleneck.
  • Something under $100: Pajamas are one of my favorite gifts to give (and receive). I love this swiss-dot print on this pair.
  • Something for yourself: A classic shirt updated with a stripe of subtle sparkle
  • Something for the baby: How precious are these?
  • Something for him: I purchased a pair of these for my hubby yesterday. Just a little something to get him in the holiday spirit.
  • Something to keep you warm: Staying warm is better done in a pink parka.

A HOLIDAY HEEL: SOPHIA WEBSTER x J.CREW

sophia webster j.crew

Hello, holiday! Just in case you were on the hunt for a good heel for this festive season, here it is: Sophia Webster’s Amma pumps. This is a pair from the current collaboration between J.Crew and Webster. (J.Crew teams up with the best people, don’t they?) While there are plenty of other pretty pairs to love in the collection, these golden beauties are by far the best. The gold jacquard gives them just enough of a fancy touch yet the silhouette (I love the multiple straps) is cool enough that I would totally wear these with a pair of boyfriend jeans and chambray shirt or cozy sweater. ‘Tis the season!

SALE ALERT: SHOPBOP

unnamed-1

Guess what? Shopbop’s sale just got even better. Not only did I find some things I’ve been holding out on (like this little top and these green K. Jacques sandals) now marked to 70% off (!!!), but there’s also a whole new batch of goodies (hello.) in the sale.

Here’s what you can’t miss:

TURQUOISE TASSELS

5N2A0855

Black-on-black, boring? Not to me. (As the holiday hustle-and-bustle gets going, black – and lots of it – will be my best friend.) Like I told you all in this post, the key is just to add some color or interesting texture or print where you can. In this case, it’s my Lisi Lerch earrings. These turquoise tassels have been a mainstay for me over the past couple of months. The aqua color was obviously a favorite during the summer months with little white dresses, but I love them just as much now, too, with camel turtlenecks and such. I love the way turquoise looks paired with navy blue. The turq color seems to make the navy look even more rich.  The best part? The earrings are under $100 making them a great gift for a gal pal – or yourself.

NIKE ROSHE RUN

sneakers

Since most of my days are spent running to and from various appointments and shoots for work, high heels (God love them) just aren’t practical for me. Flats make the long hours on my feet bearable. I love my ballet flats (these are a favorite right now) but lately I’m becoming more and more of a sneaker girl. From my New Balance kicks to my slip-ons to my tried-and-true Supergas, I’ve somehow found myself with a mini-collection of sneakers. And none of them are for wearing to and from the gym.

My latest sneakers obsession? The Nike Roshe Run. The design of these sneakers is super clean and simple. It’s a straightforward design. That’s what makes them a chic sneak. Not to mention, the minimal look allows them to be paired with everything from skinny denim to leather pants to skirts. I honestly have no idea if they’re really the best “running” shoes per say (thought the thick sole does look to be quite supportive). I already have running shoes and that’s not what these kicks are for anyway. The Roshe is for wearing around town and what not.

They come in a million colors which always presents a problem for me. I’ll probably end up with this gray or another neutral like this one and if I really like them then I’ll go ahead with a super bright (orange or neon pink). There’s also a print option which I’m surprisingly not averse to. It’s a good-looking sneaker. You can’t go wrong.

COLOR MOMENT: GRAY MATTER

grey

While my closet is packed with a color palette of grey, white, and black year-round, this is never more true than in the winter. Cold months call for heavy layering and it’s just easier for me to do this when I stick to the basics. Not to mention, I love a tonal look – especially a gray one. The various shades of gray play nicely together which makes achieving that head-to-toe look fairly simple.And, of course, all of it looks good black and white.  Dark charcoals like this coat (Gap! Under $150!) pair perfectly with heather-grays like this cozy sweater or these leather pants. I also love the idea of a grey sweater dress with charcoal tights and some ankle boots. I bought these jeans last week and can’t wait to pair them a range of various grays (mainly this jacket that I’ve decided I have to have). There’s just something about winter that makes me want to cozy up in the color so I’m going to fully embrace it. I’ve rounded up some of my gray favorites here for you to check out.
