A Few Favorites for Fall

The weather has been so mild this month that I’m starting to feel a little touch of fall fever! I really can’t wait for the leaves to change so that I can try to capture all of that amazing autumnal foliage with my DSLR. This will be my first fall since buying it, and I mean really, can anything beat Central Park in the fall? I think not. 
Of course with the change of seasons comes the urge to pick out a few special pieces to add to my closet (just a very few…I’m really all about thinning out my clothing collection these days). Here are a few pieces that I’m considering adding to my wardrobe (or at least my wish list): 
I really need to overhaul my pajama drawer! Chic and cozy oversized nightshirts, adorable pastel colored shorts, yes. Stretched out old boxers that I have from the Gap from a hundred years ago…yeah, no. 
I LOVE that studded sweatshirt. If only it looked longer (I have a long torso since I’m tall), it would be in my shopping cart right now. 
I’ve never bought an official pair of “boyfriend” jeans, but I do have a pair that’s gotten so worn out and soft over the years that they qualify as such. I wear them CONSTANTLY (to the point that one of the belt loops is hanging on by a thread), so I think it might be time to spring for a real pair. I’m obsessed with Madewell’s denim and I like that these are more on the slim side. 
I really hate to be a bandwagon-jumper-on-er (that’s a new phrase I invented) but the more I kept seeing bucket bags EVERYWHERE….well, I slowly started to want one. This has a more friendly price tag than the Mansur Gavriel that’s all over the place, and since I already have other bags from Madewell, I know that I love the quality and style of their leather. It looks comfortable since it’s crossbody, the color is gorgeous, and I just think it has a cool, downtown vibe (like all of Madewell’s stuff). 
What’s on your fall wish list?

    There's a Loft by my office and they have a bunch of sweatshirts with lace that would be soooo cute with skinny jeans and an oxford underneath.

    Bean boots, a navy wool blazer and a tartan scarf are at the top of my wish list for autumn. I usually cling to the end of the summer but this year I am ready for cosy boots and scarves as big as blankets!

      A tartan scarf sounds great! I'm definitely going to be needing one of those 🙂
