1- As I mentioned yesterday, it was far past time for a hair update. And in true Elizabeth fashion, once I have my mind set on something, come hell or high water, I’m getting it accomplished. What do y’all think?
& just as a tease (pun intended) more big hair changes soon to come. eek!
(dress: Marc by Marc // boots: Rachel Roy (similar) // belt: J. Crew)
2- I found (and obviously purchased) another perfect sweater (+ 25% off with code GOODCHEER). Looks fabulous with leggings and booties.
3- If you’re searching for a solid hostess gift for the Holidays, let me suggest this and a nice bottle of Bordeaux.
4- And for those of you looking to jump on the Moscow Mule Mug trend, these are for you. Plus I can think of about a dozen other ways to use these little copper darlings. (+ save 25% with code MITTENS)
5- I’ve fallen MADLY in love with the Gold & Gray jewelry line. Lily (owner & designer) uses natural stones and materials to create the most splendid pieces. The greatest part is they are uniquely beautiful on their own- or even more spectacular paired with another piece currently residing in your jewelry box.
I am just a slight bit obsessed with this shark tooth necklace. And when I say “slight bit” I mean a lot. A whole, whole lot.

Happy Friday to you all! oxo
I think Banana Republic has been KILLING it lately. Here are a few of my favorite picks (30% off right now with code BRBEST):
Jacquard print "Camden" pant that I’d wear with a cream lace top and this
black velvet puff-sleeve blazer
plus this striped number, this navy plaid blazer, and this super sexy corset dress (which- you can’t tell from the photo- has the prettiest bright pink piping) might also be sitting in my online cart.
Apparently it’s the year of the appliances in the H house. Thanks to Blake, my blender is hopefully Jimmyrigged until Christmas. Nothing lights a fire under a man’s ass to “fix” something like the thought of spending $400 unexpectedly at WS. I’ve also been on the hunt for a new coffee maker and I think we’ve finally committed to the Breville above. We wanted a “real” coffee maker (sorry, Keurig) and but one that could still brew individual cups with fresh grounds (I prefer half-caff; Blake goes for the real deal). There you go, Santa. One stop shopping for us this year.
Related: are we the only couple in the world that has more trouble picking out appliances than purchasing a home? Yes? I thought so.
Our next large (read: expensive) project at Casa H will be redoing our master bath (just to clarify- that’s my inspiration photo). I’m fond of the black and white floors- no surprise there- and I’m sure those green walls would soothe after even the most chaotic day. Who am I kidding? ANYTHING would be an upgrade from our “vintage” shell sinks we’ve been living with for nearly 6 years.
And finally- a great reminder found via a Facebook friend.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! oxo
Today in probably not profesh to death ensembles but really it’s too cold outside for me to care …
I’m sure you all remember my epic search for the perfect cableknit sweater (following my epic search for the perfect coated black skinnies. methinks I use “epic” too loosely). I think I brought home no fewer than 12 options. Either they were too boxy, the sleeves were too long (a common problem with my apparent T-Rex arms), the material was too itchy, or they shed all over everything. I can’t wear angora either which makes sweater hunting even more fun (not). I finally committed to one — above — and the good news is that this bad boy hardly broke the bank at just under 60 bucks. I do think I’ll get a good amount of wear out of this well into Spring. In fact, I’m considering grabbing the navy to wear with white pants as the weather warms up in March. Do you guys do that too? Find something you love and buy one in every color imaginable? [please say yes so I don’t feel like a total outcast…]
cableknit boyfriend sweater: Gap; take 30% off all orders with code GAPMORE // coated black pants: Madewell // pumps: Sam Edelman (now on sale)! // nail smear: Essie “Wicked” (a fall favorite) // Taryn necklace: Sweetie Pie Jewelry (available in a couple of other fun colors. I’m a fan of the natural one)
& yes Mother- I wore a coat to the office :)
I’ve been lusting over a pair of Rag & Bone Newbury booties for quite a while now though I’ve yet to “pony up” and actually add to my shopping cart (too much commitment at that price). I think these Kinsey booties are just as cute and they are now 40% off at Nordstrom.
Worn with this outfit, the Kinsey booties are pretty close to fall perfection in my book.
