New Fall Goodies!

Normally I'm not a big shopping girl but I must say this Fall I've seen so many wonderful things I want to buy - and I've bought a few of them!

My most recent purchase are these adorable arm warmers from REI.

I just love how they keep your fingers free for gear changing. Living in LA it's never really freezing here so these should be plenty warm. And that little button detail is tooooo cute!

I also got these awesome boots on sale at Land's End.

You won't be able to find these anymore on their website, as they seem to be all sold out. My sister got in just under the wire and purchased them in black! They do have a couple of other similar styles, though, I'm not sure the quality of those quite rivals these. These were called the Women's Favorite Riding Boot. I'm pretty sure they meant horse riding but I'm gonna pretend they meant bike riding! I love the cognac color and they are super high quality. I thought I remember the website saying they were Italian but they are stamped "Made in Mexico." Either way they are beautifully made and will last me for many years to come.

I also got a pair of Highwaist Skinny Jeans (I refuse to call them "jeggings") on sale (40% off!) by 7 For All Mankind.

The pictures are a little deceptive. On me they come way up above my belly button which I love. They kind of a have an 80's feel to them and the fact that they are high waisted means no worries when I'm riding my bike cause they won't slip down and reveal any underwear waistbands. And they'll be great for tucking into my new boots!

I also got some fun, cheap sweaters and a great scarf from H&M. I'll be posting pictures of those as I wear them.

For some reason almost everything I've bought this year is some version of grey - it seems to be my theme for the season! Now if I can just find some grey suede shoes!

Thanks for putting up with my conspicuous consumption. I hope I didn't bore you.


  1. Oooh, i bet you'd love the stuff at "Sock-Dreams"; armwarmers, legwarmers to drool over. i've got a couple pairs of the orkney angora wristlets and as soon as things turn chilly i'm thrilled to wear them.

  2. I just went to Sock-Dreams and bought some legwarmers. Thanks for the tip.

  3. love that youre pretending theyre bike riding boots. although i'm not a fan of wearing skinny jeans while riding, my lower body feels suffocated by there tightness, but you be the judge of that. the boots are gorgeous though, they'll look great with knee length skirts and tights too. can't wait to see your fall riding look.

  4. I just saw some of the arm warmers! I tried a few on but wondered if they would get soggy in the rain that seems to fall 40 out of any given 50 days up here. I'm going to keep them in mind though, as its my arms that get cold most of the time.

  5. Very late to the party, I know, but those boots must be Fryes made for Lands End because they look identical to the Frye Melissa Button Boot which are handmade in Mexico. I love riding my bike in them.
