Autumn Wish List

Autumn WishList

I’m just so giddy that we’re entering my favorite season!! If it wasn’t so hot here in NC right now (and if I didn’t want to look ridiculous), you’d already see me in scarves and boots. And a Pumpkin Spice Latte in my hand. (Can you believe they’re back already??)

I have my eye on a few things that will make Autumn be fabulous in the style department. When we move into the colder months, I tend to gravitate towards blacks, greys, and smokey purples. And this season it’s no exception.

Polka Dot Top | If it has polka dots or stripes, I’m hooked.  Cute little collar? Even better! (I avoided opening up the Fall Boden catalogue for weeks! I just want everything in there!)

Quilted Riding Boots | I would love a pair of two-toned riding boots, because there is so much versatility with them. I still regret not snagging these during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  I love the quilted pattern! And Cole Hann is my favorite “quality vs. quantity” shoe brand. Their shoes are so comfortable and last for a long time!

Pretty Scarf | I have a million scarves already, but I should snag another one 🙂

Eye Shadow Pallet | I love pretty neutrals when it comes to eye shadows. When autumn arrives, my color choices swing from shimmery bronzes to purpley greys. This pallet would be perfect!

Clutch | While a clutch isn’t exactly the most functional bag in the world (can you fit diapers and wipes in one??), I like having pretty small clutches to stash my “mom gear” in to keep it all together in my diaper bag. That way I don’t accidentally smear Butt Paste all over my hands!

Quilted Vest | Every season, I see one.  I want one.  I just never purchase one. Maybe this will be the year?

High Low Styling with Striped Dress

Hi Lo with Striped Dress

I bought this striped dress at Old Navy this last week. Love it!  And love stripes!

This dress was so inexpensive (cost me $15 on sale!) that I thought it would be the perfect item to pair with low priced accessories as well as expensive items.  Some of these items I have already (or similar), but added a few other touches that I’d LOVE to have.

First, the shoes.  I’ve been wanting a pair of brown wedges forever.  These Tory Burch ones are so awesome with the metallic detailing in the heel.  BUT they’re pricey.  If I was searching for a wallet-friendly version, I’d pick up these from DSW.

I love the bright color of the bag.  I have a similar Kate Spade Outlet bag, and used it when I recently wore this dress.

To pick up the same pink/coral color, I found an inexpensive statement necklace from  Forever 21.  The watch is also el cheapo!  I have something similar from Target. I hope the large watches never go out of style, because I love them!  And if I had my ears pierced (seriously, I don’t!), I’m sure I would own a pair of these bow earrings from Kate Spade.  Both the watch and the earrings are a nod to the gold in the wedges.

And finally, a few items in the “Beauty” category.  I’ve been searching for cute cosmetic bags recently, and was pleasantly surprised to see that Forever 21 had some adorable ones, especially this floral version!  And that Essie nail polish is just the right blend between nude and pink.

I seriously can’t get enough of stripes this spring!  I think by the end of the season, you could look at my closet and see nothing but prison stripes.  Ohi.
