My Pantone Sweater + The Smith + Quick Bendel Picks

Just like last Friday, I am doing more of a wrapping up the week with a few thoughts/favorites today rather than strictly a favorites post!

First, I’m finding it really funny how last week I complained about the Pantone Color of Year for 2019 AND THEN I went and wore a pretty sweater yesterday in a shade of coral.  While it’s still not my favorite color, I have seen some pretty event set ups using coral since the Pantone announcement and I do like this sweater so I guess it will all be okay.

I had that large mug of coffee at a late breakfast/early lunch meeting yesterday at The Smith. Although I do love The Smith, I was a little upset that we couldn’t get the lunch menu while we were there. I ordered some sort of egg white omelette which was fine but I prefer the lunch menu offerings.

Prior meal recaps from The Smith including this dinner in 2016, brunch with my son in 2014, and dinner in 2013!

Smallcakes had their RAINBOW COOKIE CUPCAKES available yesterday so I made a mad dash to the store late in the day to pick them up. Best cupcakes ever.

It’s been such a busy week that I really didn’t have time to shop or even browse clothing links! But don’t worry, I did have time to remember that Henri Bendel is really closing soon which means I MUST purchase exactly what I may want before I can no longer get my hands on it.

I decided this week that I probably need the treats pin set for the tag that hangs on my Influencer Tote. I used this tote just yesterday (see below) to hold my computer and whatever else as I trekked around the city.


Still haven’t bought the Socialite Charm Necklace but know that I need to! I’m running out of time! The Sequin Party Clutch is a good catch and still think I probably need the Miss Bendel Pouch on a Chain. Going to be really sorry if I don’t make some Bendel moves soon.Check out my Henri Bendel Must-Haves list here if you missed it.

Have a great weekend!

Any fun plans for this weekend?

Have you bought anything recently at Bendel since they are closing soon?
