Fall Wish List

I cannot wait for it to get cold. I am so looking forward to tights and boots and it being acceptable to wear black during the day. I'm also looking forward to cocoa and pumpkin flavored things and Glee and Gossip Girl and holidays that get me time off work.

Whenever a new season comes it's hard to not notice a shift in mood, dress, activity, and more. I think some people get sad the summer has passed but there's so much to look forward to in Fall and Winter. Including these lovely things.

Pants! We can wear pants again! I love a great dark skinny jean. I live in them all year with the exception of Summer. They go with anything, look fantastic with flats, fit into boots, and can be dressed up or down. Don't listen to what anyone says, skinny jeans aren't just for skinny people.

I love wearing black opaque tights with boots in the winter. This dress would look fabulous with black tights, a black pea coat, and some brown leather or grey suede boots. Bonus, there are snaps in the back of this dress to make it fit tighter or you can leave it all loose and boho. Or belt it! Oh my goodness...the options are endless.

Oh hi, I'm just going to stand around looking effortlessly sexy. Don't mind me.

I would very much like to wear this with some slouchy brown leather boots.

What is more fun in cold weather than a hot red lipstick? This one is by Dior and stays true to their magical formula that deposits color yet feels and acts like a gloss. I would actually trust myself to put this on without a mirror or liner and be fine.

I've tried the whole not being girly thing and it doesn't work for me. I love ruffles and lace and sparkle, albeit in a sophisticated way. This top is my ideal way to work a ruffle without looking too young. Throw a cardigan on with some skinny jeans and metallic flats and you've got yourself an outfit.

Well, this looks like pretty much the best hoodie ever.

Boots, I loooove you. Seriously. Please be mine.

I would love to throw this on over a black tank dress with some brown leather boots and bare legs on a sunny fall day when it's not so much cold as crisp...perfection.

Can you ever have too much nail polish? Can you ever have too much Chanel?

So, according to the Free People website this scarf is eight feet long. Which sounds about perfect to me. I hate buying scarfs that end up with these weird short little ends hanging down once you wrap them around your neck. This seems just right for snuggling into on those days when you are wearing a scarf for a reason.

And, last but not least, I would like this haircut. But with bangs. And brunette.


  1. Hmm... my husband might end up hating that I'm reading your blog... Unless I learn how to cook some of your food options!

    I'm hopefully getting this haircut on Saturday!: http://www.hji.co.uk/blogs/pictures/sbs-mar20-after.jpg

  2. Liz, that is a hot haircut. Hopefully you will have less hair in your eyes though. What color is your hair?

    My hair is too short for that cut I posted right now but I think I could do it soon. I love the bluntnees.

    I'll post some more recipes soon so your husband isn't grumpy.

  3. I will certainly keep my hair out of my eyes more than that model, haha. I work in front of a computer; I wouldn't be able to get anything done! My hair is *apparently* blonde (according to my stylist sis-in-law), but I think of it as brown. I'm considering going red, but probably not until the fall.

    I'm jealous of all short hair right now! I've been growing my hair out for locks of love and I'm soooo tired of my long hair. I can't wait to chop it all off!

  4. I'm loving all your clothing finds. I'm a lazy dresser. I could definitely dress up WAY more since I'm in an office, but....I don't. Your style is adorably cute.

    If I had the hair to "do" short hair - I totally would. What a cute cut.

  5. I LOVE the blue sweater. Cable knit sweaters are so cute ^^. I can't wait to break out all my fuzzy warm soft things in the fall. Until then, I'll be enjoying the heck out of all my summer camis and tanks *_*!
