shopping list 1

I don't spend too much time on Pinterest, and—try not to laugh—just recently created a "buy" board for clothes, beauty products and home goods that I actually plan to purchase (separate from the strictly inspirational fashion looks, painted faces and entertaining spaces I pin). Genius. It's so much easier to maintain my ever-evolving wish list digitally than with old-fashioned pen and paper. This season, the board helped me sift through an assortment of moto-inspired jackets and sweaters just right for transitional temperatures. The style fluidly blends edge and comfort. It's a piece I've wanted to invest in for some time—cooler and more casual than a blazer, but something you can similarly wear just about everywhere. The tweed and leather Rebecca Taylor (5) is pretty nearly perfect, I love the exaggerated draping on pick 3, and the Piperlime Collection coated version (1) has a luxe appearance for retailing under $200. But I've narrowed myself down to the styles that look most natural both indoors and out (more bang for your buck!): Anthropologie's sweater-knit paneled jacket (4) and the cotton contrast-sleeve jacket (7) do it best. Pick one for yourself because whatever you've got going this weekend—cocktails, apple orchard, Gone Girl (I'm planning on all three)—the Moto Jacket's revved up for the ride.
