Wishing to Wear My Fall Wardrobe

I "tossed and turned" so to speak about what to write about today. I was going to do my foundation review but decided to hold off on that. Then I was going to write about friendship but I'm not sure my heart is ready to yet. So, let's talk Fall Fashion.

Yesterday's post on the RoseRags Leopard Poncho [which you can win!] got me thinking about styling different pieces together and about how stellar that poncho will look with my brown faux leather jacket. [Remember when faux leather wasn't cool? SO glad it is now. #idontwearrealleather] Hashtagging in a blog post is cool now too, luckily.

Anyway - the temps are supposed to be in the 80s here in DC today. It's rainy. Muggy. I'm over it. I know some of you around the country are getting this same kind of weather too. It's October - come on now. Bring me the cooler temps! Here are the outfits that I wish I could be wearing right about meow:








1. This warm sweater/poncho is from Old Navy [Last season. Boo!] Have you heard of the blog Workday Weekend? Go check it out. I've apparently been hiding under a rock that I'm just now finding her.
2. I just want to wear my blazers! I have some fun colors this year like this one from The Pink Peonies and I want to wear 'em!
3. I like to call this look business meets urban meets a polo match. Kinda cute mash-up, yes?
4. I'm obsessed with plaid button-ups. Not pretty "J Crew plaid" but the "kind-of-worn vintage surfer plaid."
5. Do I even need to say it? I want to wear an animal print infinity scarf. Note: As of now, I still have not purchased one on Etsy. Soon! I love this outfit with the camel blazer. Although those particular heels aren't super "me."
6. But what do most of these outfits have in common/what is the #1 Fall item I am waiting so patiently to wear? Boots! Chambray and boots together = perfection.

Next week, I think I shall do the other half of my Fall fashion “wish” list. And when I say “wish” I mean “I have most of this stuff already and just wish to WEAR it.”

Which outfit is your favorite? :) What Fall items are your favorite to wear? Anyone else impatiently waiting to wear their Fall wardrobe??

I love the blazer looks. Brown leather boots are on my wish list this year. I love the plaids!!! Plaids with leggings and boots are a weekend staple for me.

It has now been over a year that I've been wanting to buy a blazer and some nice boots. I think the time has come... I will, I will, I will!

I love blazers but I am so long torsoed that finding a good one is really hard for me. They are always too short or don't fit right through the arms. I have hope that since there are so many stores that have them this season, they'll be one or two that fit me correctly. We'll see though! I think my favorite outfit is the kelly green blazer with the striped shirt and orange belt. It's a very "me" color combo

We're having an Indian Summer, but it's still not that hot! I don't envy you at all - I've been wearing my boots for weeks.

I was trying to figure out which outfit I liked the best, but honestly I love them all. I'm also a huge fan of blazers this season. Hoping so hard for some cooler weather!!

That poncho in the first picture is ridic cute! How come when I go to shops like Old Navy I don't see cuteness like that?!?!

Laura said...

Chambray and boots...drool. I love your "right meow" reference.

Kristen said...

i've been wanting a new plaid shirt that's NOT red/blue like the 2 i already freaking own and it's so hard to find a good color mix. everything at target is weird...and way too short!

I love number 3. I did a Friday's Fancies inspired from that one. I got a blazer for my birthday that I can't wait to style.
