My Current Fall Wishlist


A week or so ago, I would have felt like I was jumping the gun a little bit by posting a fall wishlist. It still felt like SUMMER. But this week... this week I have shut my windows, turned off my ceiling fan, spent the nights curled up in my blankets and shivered when leaving for work in the morning. Even if not officially, fall has pretty much arrived.

I'm envisioning a more casual fall. I always fill my closet with dresses, many of which I rarely find an occasion to wear, but this fall I want lots of skinnies, sweaters, plaid and general coziness. The equestrian style Hunter boots are on their way to me now from Shopbop (cannot waaaait) as well as that cute v-neck varsity sweater. My closet seriously lacks sweaters, last fall & winter I ended up rotating the same 3 sweaters over & over, so I jumped at this one - such a good price at Eluxe!

I also mentioned before my growing love for leather leggings & pants, and these French Connection ones look absolutely perfect, and they're at a great price point, too! 

So overall, I'm feeling comfy, slightly edgy basics with cute accessories like cute winter hats, shimmery green nail polish, and always gorgeous Kate Spade accessories! What's on your fall wishlist?

Happppy Friday! I am so glad the weekend is here. It's been a long, sleepy week - I can't quite tell if I've been battling some sort of sickness or what, but I've had zero energy all week and an overwhelming desire to go to bed before the sun even sets. 

But now the weekend is here and that energy needs to kick into high gear because I've got all kinds of fun ahead. Today is my pal Kristin's birthday so we're having a little soiree for her tonight, and I'm pretty certain tomorrow will be full of social times as well.

This dress has been a go-to for evenings out this summer. It's a super easy throw & go dress, but the  low strappy back makes it a little more evening appropriate. 

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Happy September! Can you believe September is already here? As sad I as I am to see summer go, there are so many amazing things happening this fall that I can't help but be excited!

And as fall approaches I'm having a serious moment with leather leggings and pants. From coated jeans to the real deal, these slick pants have me swooning. While they can look super hot dressed up with heels, I'm finding myself really drawn to the more casual looks with oversized sweaters and flats or sneakers. They add an instant edge to an otherwise casual look and I definitely hope to add something similar to my closet this fall. These are definitely something I'd want to try in person before committing to, but a few great styles can be found here, here & super affordable here
