Autumn Wish List

12:00 PM

I know it's a cliche at this point but Fall is truly my favorite season. I love wearing layers and being able to bundle myself up in sweaters as I run out to the coffee shop to grab a hot tea. Halloween is my favorite holiday which is smack dab in the middle of Fall. The food is better what with apple cider, pies, and soups. I just love everything about it. When Fall rolls in I can't wait to start stocking up on new things to wear or use. I suppose it's a hold over from when I would go back to school shopping as a kid and the excitement of starting a new school year. It always felt like a chance to redefine yourself. All that being said, here are a few things I'm eyeing to start my Fall with.

  • I'm very much over skinny jeans. I've been leaning towards more loose fitting and wide legged pants and have been on the hunt for a good pair of wide or straight leg denim. My friend Lauren recommend I give this slim wide leg jean from Madewell a try and I'm a big fan. I recommend trying them on if you can - the website has it listed to "size up" but I found I had to size down. It's the perfect cross between a wide leg and a straight leg. Not too wide, just right.  
  • Another Madewell find: How cozy this sweater does this look featuring all these beautiful Fall colors? I love nothing more than a good oversized sweater to pair with jeans or leggings so I'm ready to live in this sweater if I get my hands on it. 
  • I went through a bit of a phase in the summer where I was anti all jewelry. However by the tail end I was beginning to eye some necklaces. I'm slowly coming around again to wearing necklaces, bracelets, rings. I've actually been lusting after this necklace for nearly a year now so I think it's about time I bite the bullet. 
  • Not exactly something "for me" more so for my home.... but I really, really don't need any more art. Regardless I am obsessed with this eye and moon print in a wooden frame. I'm antsy to redecorate my room (getting a new bed frame, moving things around... Autumn is my fresh start so I tend to do the bulk of my adjusting then) so I'd love to introduce this piece into my "new room". 
  • Is there anyone who isn't obsessed with Susan Alexandra bags? I'm not exactly a "bag girl" - I tend to find one bag I like and wear it to death - but I'm very guilty of wanting about 4 different Susans. While I think this will be more of a dream than an actual item I possess I do love the Soraya Bag so much. Not exactly "Fall-esque" but I know I'll find plenty of reasons to use it. 
  • I tried these shoes on at my local DSW a while back and have not been able to stop thinking about them. I have a similar pair of boots that are quite old and have become not so comfortable over time so I'm thinking about swapping them out for these. I also love that the ankle on these is a bit looser than normal booties in similar styles.
  • My make-up routine is pretty streamlined now to where I've found my favorite products and use them/re-buy regularly. But I have wanted to introduce something new to my routine and give it a try. I'm love the packaging and branding of Rituel de Fille so I am keen to try the Inner Glow Creme Pigment in Desire
That's it! Just a couple new things I'm looking at to perk up my Autumn. To wear while pumpkin patch strolling, visiting Farmer's Markets, and celebrating Halloween and Thanksgiving!
