My Fall Wishlist

Hello, World.

As I write this, I’m sipping a venti chai latte (hot, of course, as we’re well into September) and wearing a cardigan, despite the fact it’s still 80 degrees outside. I keep seeing northeastern bloggers going apple picking, snapping fall foliage, and wearing chunky sweaters. I almost burn up wearing a cardigan and it’s nearly October! Anyway, I’m trying to get into the fall spirit and would like to share a little fall wishlist with some pieces I’d love to add to my closet this year. I love the cozy, brisk mornings of fall, but I have yet to experience one… here are pieces that are getting me excited for the day it feels like fall.

Baseball Cap | Leopard Flats | Green Belt | Patagonia Fleece Hoodie | Patagonia Popover | Burnt Orange Sweater | J. Crew Bell Sleeve Top| Monogram Leather Gloves | Cashmere Beanie | Over the Knee Boots | Barbour Plaid Scarf 

I love over the knee boots… ever since Serena van der Woodsen wore a gray, suede pair with her Constance uniform. I have only owned one pair, but I’m tempted to invest in another pair this season. They look so good with skirts, bare-legged on not-quite-cold- days! I also love the fuzzy Patagonia fleeces, but I have yet to invest in one. Speaking of which, I also love burnt orange! I think it’s the quintessential fall color.

What styles are you loving this season?

Fall Inspiration

Hello, World.

I am one of those fall obsessed people who gets to September 1st, and thinks its time for boots, sweaters and jeans. Unfortunately, the world doesn’t seem to be with me since it’s still regularly 90 degrees and humid in Virginia. I have been trying to not let the heat get to me, but I’m really really ready to walk outside and feel a crisp chill in the air. In light of my love for fall and my desperation for the leaves to change, I wanted to share a little fall inspiration, meaning items that immediately make me think of fall! Below are items I’m currently loving, and would love to invest in for fall ’16! As a general aside, I’m excited to be somewhere that actually has stricter seasons. I love California, but the weather is almost too perfect because it doesn’t really change too drastically. I’ve heard that VA is beautiful in the fall and too cold in the winter (but is DOES snow!!!). I cannot express my excitement for the coming seasons. I plan to take a ton of photos of William and Mary’s main campus when the leaves change!

The above items are all things I absolutely love at the moment! Something I want to get more of? Matching PJ sets. I don’t know why, but having matching PJs make me feel more grown up and put together. I get a set of flannel PJs every year for christmas, and I love them! I also would love another pair of Tory riding boots. I wear mine almost daily during the winter months, and they’re such comfortable boots. I also really want the 6″ Bean Boots. I got the 8″ against my original instinct, and while I like them, I think the 6″ hits the leg in a more flattering place, and are easier to put on and take off. Also, the BP scarf from Nordstrom embodies every fall color, and just screams fall to me. As for the Marley Lilly pullover, people who know me know I cannot resist a good monogram, and I think this piece is just SO cute. It’d be perfect for long days at the library.

If you need a good fall scent, I highly recommend the Leaves scent from Bath and Body works. It smells like fall in more ways than I can explain. A lot of pumpkins and apple scents smell great, but leaves literally smells like a fall day. I just love it!

Are you ready for autumn?

Hello, World.

Even though it’s mid-September, it’s definitely not feeling like it. There weather is really not feeling like fall, given that it’s 90 degrees almost daily, with a few 75 days thrown in. All I really want is for it to be cold, so I can wear sweaters and boots, and not be way too hot. In light of the warm weather, I wanted to share some of my favorite fall looks to inspire those of you who, like me, are suffering in still too warm weather.
