The fall list




Shirt, button-up, shorts, chukkas: Old Navy {whoa...that never happens}, Trench: F21, Bag: Vintage Gucci, Jewelry: DIY, Guess, Premier, F21, gift
I got a little jump start on the list this weekend with the trench and chukkas. And the cool weather from last, week which spoiled me so, is now gone. So in effort to tell fall to hurry up and get here already, I present my fall list. Oh the deliciousness.
1. Something red. Hott red. With two t's. Hott red bottoms means hott red bums.
2. More leopard. Goodness, I can't get enough of this! I'm thinking shoes right now, but I wouldn't say no to a shirt if it looked at me sweetly and asked, "pretty please."
3. Glorious riding boots. It's a wish list right? In my wishes they would be gorgeous leather with vintage-looking brass buttons all the way up the side.
4. Something mustard. Like a pencil skirt. But in a woolly fabric that just smells like fall. Yes, I associate color with smell. I think that must say something about me.
5. Polka dots. Any color. Any size. I'm reverting back to kindergarten and geometrics are boss.
6. A school boy blazer. Or just a blue blazer that I can replace the buttons on and pretend it's a school boy blazer. They look so smart. I think it would definitely make me smarter. Or look smarter. Which practically mean the same thing.
7. A fur vest. I had a run-in with a lovely one the other day in Dillard's. And drooled on it a little bit. And petted it softly. We've been daydreaming of each other since.
8. More color. Deep, royal, jewelish color that says, "I am a big girl and I know exactly what I'm talking about." Purple is authoritative.
What made your list this season?

Can I just say that leopard anthing is my favorite for fall. I love how it never goes out of style---It's simply timeless. Love your ten for fall!

"Purple is authoritative." :D Love that (and it's true).
Hmm ... well, we don't really have fall where I am, but I never let that stop me from making a wish list. Some of my wishes: comfortable yet sophisticated shoes, colorful jewelry, and more pencil skirts!

I just finished my fall season shopping ("ahahahaha, you wish," laughs my closet). I ended up with a camel-colored trench, a leather bomber, a school boy blazer (great minds), some super flattering navy flares, a cherry red scarf, vintage cowboy boots and a belted shirt dress. Now I would like some 61 degree temperatures, please.

I've been meaning to do this. I need to make a list of things on my list for fall, and go shopping.

Your blog is one of my fave fashion blogs. I love seeing what you are going to wear next. I'm now making my blog more like that and incorporating more fashion posts. You have inspired me girl :)

Savannah said...

I love your trench! A new one is on my list for sure!

Jenn said...

I love those booties on you! I can't wait to wear mine when it gets cooler around here. And I think I'm in need of a new pair of riding boots.

I love the way you layered this outfit. I have been very into sweaters with collars sticking out in my own outfits lately, as well. Fall just makes me so excited to experiment and try on new combinations of clothing.

My wish list has some similar items! I am ALWAYS on the hunt for gorgeous boots, and leopard is a must have. I don't wear much color, but my favorite red item is lipstick -- always! :)

Glad I stumbled upon your blog. Link after link led me here.

well, these aren't just like the dreamy boots on your list, but they have the buttons and they're actually affordable:

I'm very new to your blog, but loving it already :) Don't know if you like to thrift shop much but I just picked up the cutest blazer from goodwill. It's a little boys school navy blazer and I got it for $2!! I have a hard time fitting into adult blazers anyways because I'm petite so this worked perfectly for me. You should take a look at your local thrift store!
