Hi friends, hope you are well! The weather has been so gorgeous lately and we have even had a few evenings that warranted a sweater…how exciting! Really gets me in the mood to usher in fall, in? all its glory. I LOVE fall/winter dressing. Makes a great topic for today’s post. Incidentally I have done a little clothes shopping lately so feel well versed on what is out there for every day casual chic dressing with a few dressier pieces thrown in that can be dressed up or down…found some goodies and would consider just about every piece here a true closet staple that will stand the test of time. SO if you could choose any 2 of these staples which would be your top picks? Hard to choose…..so put on those thinking caps:) Here we go…. CHOICE 1 This is such a smart looking sweater dress and what a price. I could see it with riding boots as much as I could a pearl necklace and heels…click here for info CHOICE 2.
