Lately when I’ve been shopping for basics, I’ve gravitated toward items with special touches. Forget boring, basic navy trousers! Hello, slouchy and silky navy trousers. Forget your boring, basic black blazer! Hello leather-sleeved black blazer! I’ve been craving everything with leather details this fall, so a blazer like this was at the top of my must-have list. 

So who watched the premiere of New Girl last night? Don’t tell me what happened! I’m still catching up on season two … but I plan to be caught up by next Tuesday’s episode.
