Loving Laveer: A New Line from Kate Ciepluch.

I love jackets.  Mostly because I'm a little lazy and throwing a cool jacket over a good pair of jeans and a tshirt is the fastest way to chic I've found.  I think Kate Ciepluch, former fashion director of the beloved e-tailer Shopbop, agrees with me.  Hence, her creation of Laveer, a line focused on easy yet impossibly cool jackets that are quickly becoming an addiction for me.

I'm loving my "Revelry" Jacket, but I'm told it's nearly sold out now.  It's great with my Celine tote I use as my diaper bag.

This was the other option I was considering and now I'm kicking myself I didn't get both. Isn't is so Isabel Marant?

I'm also loving this style.  It's so easy!

You can shop Laveer here or here.

Because who wouldn't want a sweatshirt that is reminiscent of a down comforter?  I certainly wouldn't kick it out of bed- or the closet...

Smooth Move: Alterna Caviar Perfect Blowout Creme

I got a very bad haircut recently.  Against my better judgement and my husband's warnings I got a haircut out here in the 'burbs instead of my tried and true place in the city.  But I'm short on time, as most new moms are, and getting your hair done is one of the only things you can't bring your little one along to.  So I went and it was bad.  I asked for a dusting, she cut over an inch off.  I told her I don't like blunt ends and that I wanted a few long layers, she started using words like "shatter" which I've never heard used in a salon before.  That's when my stomach started to sink and I knew I was in too deep but there was no going back.   Now, I'm left dealing with the fall out- or grow out as the case may be.  The thing that's getting me through is a product I found recently. Alterna's Caviar Perfect Blowout Creme.   It's helping to smooth out my rough edges and allows my hair to bend.  It also doesn't make my hair flat like a lot of smoothing products which is essential.

I've learned my lesson and I won't stray again, but on the bright side I did discover a product that's earned a permanent place in my heart and on my hair.

Super Storm Shoes: Sorel Boots.

It's been an interesting few weeks here on the east coast weather wise.  It's only the beginning of November and we've already been rocked by a hurricane so powerful it was named a "Super Storm" and now I'm looking out into 5 inches of snow.  So,  what kind of footwear goes with this wet slushy horribleness?  Sorel Boots.

Wouldn't these be great with thick tights or skinny jeans? Chipahko Blanket Boots. $225.

These might be my pick, although you might have to treat the suede to make them water repellent.  
Joplin Boots. $125.

All can be purchased at here.
