Ain't Nothin' But a Houndstooth

This fall, my trend radar has been on high alert. I've kept my investment pieces such as my black riding pants, cardigans, J Crew cords, boyfriend jeans, skinny jeans, and Tory Burch Revas.

To jazz things up and update my fall wardrobe, I've added lots of fun scarves, booties, tall boots, fun tights and unique jackets from J Crew and Loeffler Randall.

One trend that has caught my eye is the oversized graphic houndstooth print that both fashion and home furnishing designers have incorporated into their designs this year. I'm loving it!

Here are the great houndstooth print pieces I'm salivating over right now!

Dear Hubby, I don't know if you ever read my blog, but I'd love this for Christmas or even a "thanks for birthing my babies" present.

J Crew Houndstooth "Greta" Jacket

I have this jacket in the gray color. It's from a few seasons back and I still love it. It's an all-around versatile coat. I've paired it with skinny gray jeans and boots and also worn it with wide leg trousers and a dressy top.

Here's a whole page of wonderful houndstooth pieces.

Here's just a little sampling.....and BTW, Santa, I'd love this little jacket for Christmas.

Have a great Friday!!!!


  1. Yeah...I just drooled all over the place! Total eye candy! Hope your having a great day!

  2. I love it esp. the J Crew jacket. Does the orange work well with red heads? I usually stay clear, but I totally trust your judgment girl!

  3. Short Southern Momma, I hope you had a great birthday!!!

    ChatTeaKathy, I wear orange a lot. I usually wear rust or more muted oranges though. I'm really liking the dusty rose color with cognac boots/belt. Ann Taylor Loft had a lot of sweaters that color and I snagged one during the sale. I saw Chloe on chloeconspiracy wearing those colors and branched out and started wearing that dusty rose color, and love it.

  4. We so think alike! I have been stalking this houndstooth Nanette Lepore skirt all season:

  5. Total eye candy! Hope your having a great day!
