I might have skipped a month, but hey! This will be the third Favorite Things post! I hereby declare it an official series. You’ve been warned.
On a rare date night last month, Mike and I had some time to kill before our movie. We wandered around Nordstrom for a bit and I found what I thought was a steal: this Drape Neck Zip Cardigan by Caslon. It was one of those pieces I wasn’t sure about, but if I’ve learned one thing when it comes to dressing myself, it’s to never judge an outfit on the hanger. The cutest things on the rack will look terrible on me, while that one thing I couldn’t possibly wear will look absolutely fabulous. This jacket fell under the fabulous category, and I thought it was $40. SOLD. It turns out I’d looked at a tag for a different color. Sadly, the black was $68. I loved it though, so I gritted my teeth and bought it anyway.
Such a good decision. I wear it a couple of times a week, and it looks cute dressed up to go out or dressed down with jeans and tennies. Bonus: it feels like you’re wearing the most comfortable sweatshirt ever.
It’s the season of all things pumpkin, and while I don’t go crazy with the pumpkin spice (I’m even over Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes, which would’ve made 2009 Angie unfriend 2014 Angie), I do like pumpkin things in moderation. Except this Pumking brew from Southern Tier. I could drink a lot of it, all the way through spring. Try to find some before it’s gone.
I’m a magazine junkie, but I’ve tried to cut down and simplify my subscriptions over the years. I just don’t have the time or the money to subscribe to all the magazines I love. I got a free 60-day trial to Next Issue from Klout, and I have to say, I think I’m going to keep it going. For $9.99 a month, you get unlimited digital access to over 140 magazines. All of my favorites are there, as well as titles that the kids enjoy as well. And as loyal as I am to actual books over e-readers, I kind of love not dealing with a physical magazine. I always felt so wasteful when I’d finished one in 30 minutes and had no use for it anymore. You can get a free trial for 30 days, so if you have a guilty magazine habit like I do, check it out!
