My mom walked to me work before she left yesterday (aww) and snapped these photos. As you can tell we caught the early morning light so the trees were absolutely gorgeous (and I was absolutely squinty). 

This weekend we went to the Tanger Outlets in Long Island and I picked up this elbow patch sweater from Banana Republic. I don't know what it is about elbow patches, but they add instant charm to even the most ordinary sweater. 

In fact, I have had this heart shaped elbow patch DIY on my list for about a year, and I promise this winter I will finally tackle it. Until then (or if you're not the DIY type) here are a few cute and reasonably priced options to get your elbow game going.
