Gearing Up for Fall & Giveaway Winner

I think the temperature is finally going to drop into what I call the fall range here in Tennessee on Friday. I can't wait. I still need to unload my fall/winter clothes from their attic storage, air them out and change out my summer wardrobe for my fall one. This is also about the time I start shopping for a couple of new pieces. 

I only had time to hit a couple of stores at the mall, one of which was Express. I don't go in Express very often (the head-throbbingly loud music usually puts me off), but it's right next to J. Crew, and I was looking for something different. I didn't actually buy anything, but I put some items on hold so I could go back later when I have more time. Here are the items I tried on . . .

This Long Belted Sweater Jacket (the belt is actually a sweater sash, not the belt they show here).

  this Flyaway Cardigan in camel not gray (just couldn't get the photo to download).

They had lots of sparkly sequined tanks.

I really liked this Piped Military Jacket. It's a jersey material so it allows more movement than some structured jackets. Don't worry, I won't attempt the rest of the outfit.

So, what do you think? Any keepers in the bunch?

And now without further ado, the winner of the $35 credit from CSN Stores is: 
Aurel who wrote, "I just wasted about an hour lost in the CSN website! They seem to have everything! Please put my name in the hat. I love that they carry Plan toys. I'd like to get a wooden kitchen dish set for my toddler for Christmas."

Congratulations, Aurel! Someone from CSN Stores will be in contact with you soon to let you know how to access and redeem your credit. Thanks to everyone for entering the giveaway!

I always thought Express had a very European vibe.... I am glad sweater coats are back in...

I do forget about Express! Great tips (and you are right, so cheaper than J Crew!)

Hey- great news on the CSN gift certificate! I already know what I want, and even have it bookmarked!
Thank you!
*Sweater coats- sigh. I adore them, but my hubby seems to think they look like schoolmarm fashion. I suppose it depends on how you wear it!

Cute stuff!

I think I may have a J Crew gray sweater coat around here last time from the last time they were in style. Now, if I could just FIND it....
