cool mornings, warm days

cool mornings, warm days

I’m so grateful that we’ve been spared much cold weather thus far this fall. The weather has been chilly in the mornings, but then warming up considerably throughout the day. Most days, I’ve only needed a sweater, not a coat, but it’s nice to have a few pieces that can do double duty.

Dusters are everywhere this fall, but I’m on the shorter side (5’3”), so I wanted one that was still above the knee. This sweater is comfy and cozy for brisk mornings. I made it work appropriate for some client meetings by adding boots with a heel, a silk tunic, and some jewelry. I found this sweater secondhand at The Vault, but here is a similar quality version (in regular and plus sizes) and a lower-priced version (regular, plus).

I’m also wearing AG jeans (purchased on sale at Nordstrom Anniversary sale), Eileen Fisher tunic (purchased discounted at Nordstrom Rack and hemmed), Dolce Vita booties (similar) and an old Madewell necklace. 

What are your tips for chilly mornings and warm days?

Unlike in past jobs, now there's only one thing that keeps me up at night. And that's whether stores will have the items my clients need. I can find almost anything online, but when you need things within a few hours at one physical location, I always get anxious until I get in there and start finding pieces. I don't have control over what’s there. Almost always, my fears are unfounded and I find what we need. Except for last week, when I didn’t. Come on stores, where are the fun printed three-quarter sleeve poly blend blouses for my active chiropractor mom client?

I was feeling terrible, but in the end, we did find the perfect dark high-waisted denim (on sale now for a great price!), the perfect long-sleeved white tee, and the perfect go over anything jacket. Not too bad and then we’ll both keep our eyes out for that blouse.  (this post contains affiliate links)
