Why am I already thinking about St. Patrick’s Day? I’m not so sure but I saw this Irish Fishermen cardi on sale [for $29.99] at Urban Outfitters the other day and thought it would be perfect for gallivanting around on St. Patty’s. Can’t you picture wearing it with a kelly green tee peaking out from underneath? Okay I’ll stop talking about St. Patrick’s Day seeing as how it’s November, but while we’re on the subject, I’m a firm believer that a girl can never have too many cardigans. They’re so versatile and instantly cozy up any outfit. Here are some that go beyond the basics:

1. Modcloth Hard Rain Cardigan [$57.99] This typically sweet silhouette gets toughened up with some silver studs.

2. American Eagle Cable Knit Wrap Cardigan in Birch Heather [$89.90] This sweater is essentially a blanket that is socially acceptable to wear out in public. Sign me up.

3. J.Crew Merino Sequined Crochet Cardigan in gold [$148] No list of mine would be complete without something from J.Crew. This mustard-gold shade oozes sophistication.

4. Anthropologie Bright Specs Cardi [$98] Feminine frills make this cardi pop.

1. sequin studio sweatshirt $168 in heather stone [my wardrobe-go-to, the sweatshirt, all dressed up!]

2. wool bell skirt $79.50 in henna [this feminine skirt is flirty yet office-appropriate. i love the unique silhouette and unexpected pop of color.]

3. alecia suede platform peep toes [was $265] now $198 inĀ  pumice stone [i've had my eye on these since their debut several months ago - gorgeous]

4. braided chain-and-pearl necklace $118 [i never spend this much on costume jewelry but this is just too pretty to ignore]

Oh no, they’ve gone and done it again. If you’ve haven’t checked out the J.Crew Fall 2010 collection yet, go go go. I’m absolutely smitten and want every.single.thing [a girl can dream...].

If there’s one thing J.Crew does well, it’s make high-quality essential pieces that stand the test of time. Their collections consistently range from super affordable [$10 cotton tanks] to obscenely luxurious [$1,200 wool poncho - yikes] but there’s a sweet spot for everyone, no matter how much, or little, extra moola you have to spend. This fall I’ll be doing lots more browsing than buying but it’s still fun to window shop!
