Thursday Threads: Fall, Is That You?

Oh fall...where are you? The idea of you is here with college football kicking off this weekend...but the temperatures are saying otherwise. However, when the mercury starts to fall...this is what I want!

These needlepoint leopard beauties are from C.Wonder and can be yours for $148. I love how preppy they are, yet funky in this leopard print. This is not your grandmother's loafer...unless your grandmother is more like my mom or Mrs. Robinson.

This gorgeous navy leather "moto jacket" is from the Gap! Though it does not have a Gap-esque price tag, it can be yours for $298. I can say if I had this, I would wear it all the time, well into early spring! Love this!

Music Monday: Take Back the Night

Confession. I could not peel my eyes away from the Miley train wreck last night...BUT unfortunately missed JT kill it. All day today I've heard how great his performance was, but have been too busy to watch. In homage to his performance tonight, today I am feeling inspired by "Take Back the Night" which sounds like old school MJ.

Have a great week!

Wardrobe Wednesday: Summer Grey

I am so glad it is Wednesday, although I know that there is a lot of activity between me and Friday. I have been swamped and there has just not been time to write this week, which makes me sad. I thought I might roll my Music Monday into today's post...and well doesn't this drawing count as my Art Talk Tuesday? let's just go with that, shall we?Now as for what I am wearing...

1. Beaded Collar necklace, Anthropologie
2. White collarless shirt, Gap
3. Grey skinny jeans, Levis for Target
4. Grey and white medallion printed ballet flats, Old Navy (here)

I have apparently been under a rock. Bob Schneider's Moon Song apparently was released 13 years ago...shows how much I listened to before my XM days. I recently discovered it and I immediately added it to my "Songs to Download" list on my phone.

Hope you are having a great week!

Music Monday: Matt Nathanson Mission Bells

A few years ago I first heard Matt Nathanson and really enjoyed his sound. This go about, his sound is still memorable and definitely worth a download. His single "Mission Bells" has the same catchy quality that his previous body of work had. The video is also a fun black and white campy Hitchcock inspired story shot in San Francisco.

Hope you had a nice weekend and had a great start to this week!
