Wear it Now Wednesday: Get Cozy

October 9, 2013 at 9:00 am , by

Apple picking, visits to the pumpkin patch, leaf gazing, and chilly nights by a campfire — these are a few of our favorite fall things — along with boyfriend jeans, beanies, and booties. Dressing for fall is all about being cozy-yet-chic and this outfit is our idea of a perfect fall ensemble. A jacket cardigan is a softer, more casual choice than a standard boyfriend blazer and distressed jeans with a rolled cuff will give the look a little something special. Don’t even get us started on that leather tote! Buttery perfection!

Cheat Sheet: Four Things You Maybe Missed This Week

1. First, a Word of Warning

Never say no to Panda. Just don’t.

2. Remembering Eileen Nearne
I wish we could’ve featured Eileen Nearne in Ladies We Love. The 89-year-old British woman, who died earlier this month, was one of 39 women who parachuted into Nazi-occupied France as part of “Churchill’s secret army.” She gathered intelligence for Allied Forces and coordinated weapons drops to the French resistance, helping prepare them for D-Day. Eventually the Gestapo caught up to her, placed her in a concentration camp and repeatedly tortured her, but she managed to escape with two French women and meet up with American soldiers. She led a quiet life after the war, and never sought celebrity status for her actions. “It was a life in the shadows, but I was suited for it,” Nearne said in an interview years earlier. “But I wasn’t bored. I liked the work. After the war, I missed it.”

3. OK Go Is Always Welcome on Cheat Sheet

We’ve already featured a fun video by OK Go here before, but they keep coming out with great ones! This one, for White Knuckles, has some special four-legged guest stars.

It’s officially fall: time for apple cider, pumpkin picking and my personal favorite, sweaters! As always we’ve got great fashion advice here on Ladies’ Lounge, but I have to say, these 22 kitties, pups and pigs are very on-trend for the season.
