Outwear Must-Haves | Part II

Master these classical cool aviator and bomber jackets and you'll be feeling fly in no time.  Foxy Flirt: This look is for heading out on the town.  Pick an unfussy leather bomber that can be dressed up with a sequin tank and glitzy accessories.  Opt for curve-hugging skinny jeans and cute leather booties to complete the look.  Girl-next-door:  Perfect for heading to class and other everyday activities, this ensemble calls for a furry-collared aviator.  Throw it over anything---especially your favorite fair of skinnies, a comfy tee, and boots that are made for walkin'.  Classy Lady:  Who knew a bomber could be so ladylike?  Select a jacket that falls at the hip, zips up instead of buttons, and features soft fur.  Keep things classic by wearing a slimming pair of bootcut jeans, sleek brown booties, and a cashmere top. 


The peacoat should be a wardrobe staple---it's great for all body types, is extremely versatile, and comes in a variety of styles!  Houndstooth:  Purple gives the traditional houndstooth pattern an edge with this coat.  Look trendy with a pair of gray skinny jeans, a slim-fitting black top, and bold purple booties.  Grayscale:  You can't go wrong with gray this season.  This cowl-necked peacoat doesn't even need a scarf.  Play it cool with dark wash skinnies, a graphic tee, and matching booties.  Mad-for-Plaid:  Go a little crazy for a plaid peacoat.  Wear it with faded-wash blue jeans, a comfortable shirt, and sassy black booties.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
