The craziness of October seems to have calmed down in the last two weeks. Media previews and fashion events have given way to quiet weeknights at home with a glass of wine and Netflix (perfect for this self-proclaimed homebody). Even my workload is more manageable at the moment. A slower pace of life has also made want to "slow down," sartorially speaking, with easy outfits and minimal makeup, of which this is a prime example. These photos were taken the weekend I pulled outerwear pieces from Wear Else for our shoot. It was after my craziest week in October, when I had ten events and appointments in five days on top of a full work week. Phew!

The only downside of resting is that my body has mistakenly interpreted a slower pace of life as permission to get sick. I'm feeling a bit under the weather right now and hope it doesn't turn out for the worse. *crosses fingers*

So you may remember me mentioning earlier this week that I bought something at Privilege. Well, here it is: the MICHAEL Michael Kors tweed blazer with faux leather sleeves. I love the sleek lines and classic styling, and how its vibe is equal parts equestrian and edgy. The sleeves are a bit long in these photos, but I discovered that they can be folded under very easily, which means I can wear them a little longer when I want to forego gloves or tuck them away if they bother me. So far it's proven to be a solid transition piece for this middling weather we've been having.

Have a great weekend!
