M-65 Field Coat
it’s back to jacket wearing weather here in NYC, and I’m actually enjoying it. The M-65 Field Coat could certainly get some use in the fall too, layered over this. It comes in a nice range of colors and I’m always on board with clothes that guys and girls can share. Find it here.

Mark McNairy Navy Bucks
classic pair of bucks, and these are just so cool. I mean, anything by Mark McNairy is, but I am happy to see his shoes for us ladies too. These can take you through any season, and anyone of any age can rock these. Lucky for us, he’s also doing a women’s clothing line – I’m such a fan!

that you end up dressing your kid similar to whatever your own style may be (until they develop their own, of course!). I personally like to dress comfortable and easy, which is exactly what the clothes from Vintage Kit are all about. Keeping in mind that kids need to be kids, they have pieces like cardigans, knickers, overalls, tops and swimsuits. Sure to make children and parents happy too.

Moore & Giles McMillan Tie Case
gentleman traveler, the Moore & Giles McMillan tie case seems perfect. Packing is not my forte, so whenever I open my suitcase, there ends up being a wrinkled mess of clothes. This nifty accessory holds neckwear in place so there is none of that to deal with while unpacking. Obviously an investment, but if you are a guy who is constantly on the road, it may be worth it for you. Find it at Sir Jack’s, a new to me e-shop that has a quite impressive assortment of goods to browse.

Pretty little things..
Black Mountain Maxi

Wednesday Shirt Dress
from Dear Fieldbinder fall/winter 2011. The DF HouseLabel is a small collection of seasonless clothes. These versatile pieces can be layered in the colder months, and I also love that they’re perfect for day or night. Some of the styles are made from vintage fabric remnants, and the entire line is produced in NYC. But, no need to stop at just the Dear Fieldbinder label, peruse the entire assortment of other designers at this fantastic shop!

FM908 Coat with Removable Hood
a certain sense of style while not spending a ton of dough can be a tough balance. So, it was a pleasant surprise to come across the label FM908. I’m not only loving this coat to transition from summer to fall, but I’m also thrilled there are many other reasonably priced styles available at this Etsy shop. Yep, that’s right, all of these unique designs are hand made too. Maybe it’ll be one of the things in your closet you won’t have to live on PB&J sandwiches to obtain.

I Love Your Style
someone else to take care of other than myself, I feel my personal style slipping a bit. I definitely had to put in more effort when I went to an office everyday, even more so because I worked in fashion. But since my day usually consists of chasing around a kid on the playground, I need to dress more sensible. Finding a balance of practicality and individuality has been tricky – especially when my clothes are constantly covered in food, paint and dirt. With that said, I thought the book I Love Your Style by Amanda Brooks would be a refreshing and fun read. I’m not trying to get snapped by The Sartorialist, but ideally I’d like to be able to look back on pictures years down the road and smile!
Juni New York
sunny daisies, sweet hearts and a little bit of flower power, stylist Shannon Hodgson created the collection Juni. A little girls clothing line that is wearable, completely adorable and hand stitched right here in NYC. Made from 100% cotton fabrics that have a retro vibe, similar to the handmade clothes Shannon’s mother, June, used to make for her when she was a kid. So sweet, I wish Juni made clothes that came in my size too!

I’ve got to give credit..
JandHP Lapel Flower
to my hubby for finding this one. Well, actually proper credit goes to Satorially Inclined, but he did bring these lapel flowers by JandHP to my attention. The hand-made button on flower is made of cotton, and is a detail that brings a subtle flair without being too bold. A husband and wife duo started JandHP, which is based out of Nashville. All of their goods are made in small quantities to ensure quality and originality. And not just for him, JandHP is a great place to hit up for the ladies too.
