CAbi Sloan Coat

Little Red Dress

Sloan Coat

CAbi Sloan Jacket

CAbi just released their new Fall arrivals and I could NOT wait to get my hands on their Sloan Jacket. I’ve been wanting a red coat for YEARS. It is still WAY WAY too hot to wear it, but I threw it on for a quick outfit post so you guys could get a glimpse of it before it sells out. They show it on their website with their distressed boyfriends jeans (which I also love!) but I decided to go with a little mod 60’s vibe and wear it with a short a line dress and booties!

Weekly Linkup

jack skellington

Yesterday we took Eep to Disneyland for his 5th birthday. So unfortunately by the time we got home at 11pm, I was just too dang tired to put a post together for today. But I thought I would share a pic I got with Jack Skellington of The Nightmare Before Christmas! I am still putting the weekly linkup below so feel free to add your fave #ootd or fashion related post using the linky below. All I ask is that you link back to The Stylish Housewife. Can’t wait to see what you guys are wearing!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Shopping for jeans is *almost* as bad as bathing suit shopping in my book. Ok, nothing is that bad. BUT, I do have to try on TON of different styles, brands and sizes to find a pair that fits just right. I get emails from dozens of PR firms telling me about all of the latest and greatest products but unfortunately I just don’t have the time to share most of them. But THIS collection spoke to me and since Shopbop is one of my favorite one-stop-shops, I thought you might enjoy it as well. Thanks Shopbop for taking some of the legwork (pardon the pun…did I use that right? lol) out of the hunt for the perfect pair of jeans. See the full collection below:

P.S. These are my favorite from the collection…in case you were wondering.

Chaser Brand Bat Sweatshirt

Chaser Brand Swirl Boutique

Chaser Bat Sweatshirt

I’m not one to dress up for Halloween. To be honest, I can’t even remember the last time I dressed up! It must’ve been when I was in my twenties. But a couple of weeks ago I brought Eep with me for a quick stop at Swirl Boutique. I went in looking for a new outfit for date night with my hubby and instead came out with a new Chaser sweatshirt. With bats on it. And Eep was ecstatic. We go for “nature walks” almost every night and lately we’ve been seeing a ton of bats so he got a real kick out of it. And now I can’t wait to wear it to his school for his Halloween parade. Oh, and for trick-or-treating, of course!

P.S. My¬† Chaser Brand “I Heart Camping” sweatshirt was a HIT when we went camping this Summer!

P.P.S. LOCAL FRIENDS: Chaser is launching their Fall collection at the Swirl Boutique Encinitas location on Thursday Oct 8th {5pm-830pm} along with a special POP-UP from the cutest bag line Rais Case! Be there or be square! Hope to see you there!

Ted & Muffy Demeter Boots

I originally bought this tunic with visions of wearing it with “jeggings” or something similar but it is just WAY TOO HOT to wear it any way other than a dress at the moment. Most days I feel like my days are numbered when it comes to wearing short skirts/dresses, but then I think of Jennifer Aniston & Jennifer Lopez and say “what the heck”. Forty is the new thirty, afterall. =) I love the juxtaposition of a feminine dress and edgy moto boots anyway. BTW, if you are still looking for the perfect pair of boots, look no further than Ted & Muffy. They have EVERY style of boot your heart could desire. Oh, and be sure and sign up for their newsletter to get 15% off your first pair. They are on the pricier side but I don’t mind spending a little extra on investment pieces that you will have for years to come. I am wearing the Demeter Boots and they are BEYOND comfortable. I should also mention that you can custom order your foot & calf width on these boots so you can be sure they will fit you like a glove!
