Fall Mom Fashion Follow Up

Who knew that my back to school shopping guide for moms would hit such a nerve? People really came out of the woodwork to tell me they liked that post! So, after feeling such confidence from my picks online, I had to go test the waters in real life. Read: I did a little shopping.

With baby burrito in tow (my g-d he was an ANGEL!), two of my friends and I dragged strolled our little bundles of joy around the fabulous stores on Armitage Ave. this past Saturday to check out what is in for Fall. At least those stores that are still open. And, score! Score we did. Herewith: my key pieces for Fall 2010.

This 525 America leather trim riding jacket. I got it in black from Art Effect. Don’t laugh if you see me wearing it every day.

This desert boot by DV by Dolce Vita. I was debating the Clarks version, but they didn’t sell that at Lori’s.

And the Pièce de résistance — the Gap jeggings. In indigo wash. They’re already sold out online, but I got mine at the 1969 store on Rush. Better than J brand!

I’m still coveting:

These Sam Edelman shoes. I know they’re like the desert boots, but the wedge is for nighttime… right?

The Effie. They’re effing awesome. (Photo courtesy of Shoes.com – 15% off right now too!)


This bag. OMG This. Bag.

A Marc by Marc Jacobs bag would make a nice accent piece, right? (photo courtesy of Shopbop.com)

What is your key Fall item! Do share! I know I will covet it, too.


  1. I am in love with the jacket! My husband might kill me though if I come home with another one 😉

  2. I gots my jeggings!
