Fall Wishlist

Each morning I wake up to another beautifully warm, humid, summer day here in the nations capital. Unfortunately, these mornings are starting to come with a crisp bite in the air as we flip our calendars to September reminding me that fall is indeed coming. Normally I’m the kind of girl who’s all about summer. Winter invokes an insatiable wanderlust in me as I take any and every excuse to vacation south or across an ocean. This year’s fall fashion however has me looking forward to those months with suede, leather, and knitted layers galore.

Heres a peak into what’s on my Wishlist for fall!

My wishlist highlights some of the hottest trends for fall; the continuation of all things tassel like with these gold and black pair.

Flare Jeans are back, b*tches! Get in on the 70s style while still remaining work (casual) appropriate with this cool pair from MiH.

A classic wool cape has been on my wishlist for quite some time. I’m still beating myself up over the vintage plaid one I passed on at a consignment shop last year. Lucky for me, the trend isn’t going anywhere!

Bell sleeves a la the peasant blouses of the early oughts are headed back in style. Paired with a karate style belted waist of a chic romper and you become modern bohemian royalty of the office.

As a proper wanderlusting soul, this “Nomad” enscripted cross body is perfect for weekend adventures! And, it’s by Coach, who has been making a new name for themselves that is already clearly resonating with me and other millenials.

One of the hottest pieces for the upcoming fall is a button front skirt. I recently took to Twitter to figure out your thoughts on denim, suede, or cord…and well, you’ll have to check back to see which one I ordered!

Lace up flats are the it shoe of fall; I’m loving these JC’s in navy for a paunch of color!

Last but not least…suede in fall is a wonderful marriage of cozy and sexy. This Anna Sui dress is everything I need! Plus, it’ll look great with thigh high socks as the weather gets cooler and a white turtleneck for when it starts to get bitter cold.

What do you think of these picks? What styles are you stocking up on for fall!?

She Spits on Summer and Smiles Into The Night

I think I’m falling….for FALL! Normally I thrive solely for summer; shorts and tees and tanks. But this current change in weather has me looking towards the future. I’m so excited for what fall has in store (see my color & accessories post on FemInspire, as well as my Fall Wishlist). I was thrilled to find these perfectly hued ankle boots at H&M, and threw on this chambray DIY shirt. I’m also ecstatic to be wearing my leather jacket again (from H&M) which has been a favorite of mine since I first bought it.

On the non-sartorial aspect, I’m excited for crunching leaves beneath my feet and New England adventures that I can only hope to include apple picking, pumpkin picking, and a belligerently drunk trip to King Richard’s Faire. What are you excited about for fall (fashionably or life-oriented)!?
