Hello! For those in the U.S., I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend. I have to be honest that since I’m currently out on maternity leave, all my days just seem to kind of run on together. I kind of miss looking forward to those holidays from work.
Since September has arrived, and now that I finally can start fitting into “regular” clothes again (just barely…and I haven’t even attempted my old skinny jeans out of fear), I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to pick up for fall. Not surprisingly, the items I’ve been drawn to are a lot more practical this season – I don’t think I’ll be buying any more Chanel jackets this season (unless they reissue that classic black one from 2011…die hard RTW fans will know which one I’m talking about). Here’s my wish list below – and would love to hear yours!
Frye Jackie boots in Cognac ($420). I LOVE my Frye Jackie boots. You can see my original review from 2013, and my love has not faded. I haven’t found a better all around casual boot. You can also see a photo of me wearing the black from my Canada Goose review. I wear mine so much that I’ve decided to branch out from my all too familiar black color family and would like the cognac, next. I think the color will go well with all the tans and grays I have in my wardrobe.
Reversible fringed cape ($78). The price is right on this one, and I love that it’s reversible. This cape also has all the colors I like, and is fringed – almost perfect, except for the material, which is acrylic. Augh! I always try to stay with natural materials, so may try to find a similar alternative. If you have any suggestions, please share!
Saint Laurent Wallet on Chain ($1490). Now that I have a genuine diaper bag (or two), I realize the need for a little slim bag that I can easily tuck inside, that can hold my credit cards, phone, keys, and sunglasses, which I can easily wear cross body (to free up both hands!). I really like this wallet on chain from Saint Laurent – it’s larger than the classic Chanel WOC size, and fits quite a bit more. Not to mention…the price is a lot friendlier too. The textured leather is great for scratches and the black hardware means it’ll go well with silver, gold, or rose toned jewelry! I’m dithering between this one, the Gucci Soho Disco (first Gucci I’ve liked in a long time!) or some unknown other alternative.
Chloe Lauren ballet flats ($475). I need a new pair of flats and not only have I heard great reviews about these Chloes, they were very comfortable when I tried them on in store. The sad state of designer shoes means that a sub $500 price point is starting to seem quite reasonable to me (is this insanity?) though I might try and wait for a sale. I always get great cost per wear from my comfortable flats though, so I don’t sweat the price too much if I love the shoes.
Not on my list this fall/winter season? A coat or winter jacket! I finally have come to terms that I have too much outerwear – a step forward since I have a major addiction and love a beautifully cut jacket or coat, especially one out of gorgeous fabric. I’m going to try my very best to stay strong.
