The holiday season is almost upon us and, judging by the volume of emails in my Promotions folder, retailers are eager to liquidate old stock. Ann Taylor is running another 60% off sale today (discount applied at checkout). Here are some of my picks: Mini Signature Tote (reviewed here), Double Layer Sweater, Soft Twill Jacket, Mixed Media Wrap Top, Faux Leather Pencil Skirt, Lace Flare Dress, Wool Twill Peacoat, City Cape, Seamed Pencil Skirt, Sleeveless Sweater Dress, Double Breasted Blazer, Lace Tee, Long Peacoat, Two-in-One Sweater, and Classic Trench.
I picked up the Refined Pocket Cape, Ribbed Turtleneck Poncho, and Cozy Open Cardigan for myself. Sizes are still aplenty online.
And without further ado, some light reading for hump day:

Happy reading! And this week’s reading list has two fewer links because I have been too preoccupied with reading every postmortem on the latest episode of the Walking Dead. For those who follow the show, (spoiler alert) Glenn is totally alive, right?!
(The internet is, as one former professor of mine liked to say, just one giant confirmation bias machine.)
