Falling for it.

There was a nip in the air today that felt distinctly autumn and it already has me compiling an extensive Fall wish list ("wish" being the operative word here). If I had to narrow it down, it would most probably consist of jackets, sweater and shoes.

Because I spend 90% of my non-working hours in some sort of lounge-wear- I'm definitely overdue for an upgrade in that department (considering I am wearing flamingo pink sweats with paint stains on the butt at this very minute). I'm thinking some casual sneakers will be in order to wear with aforementioned lounge garb, like the preppy-cool, French Bensimon sneakers that have made their way to the States of late and come in a slew of fun colors.

I am also absolutely obsessed with finding the perfect knit blazer that I plan on wearing with absolutely everything, and I think I may have found one from Madewell that fits the bill. For a musty version, I thought this Spiegel number, despite looking a little Talbots, could be kind of cool if accessorized correctly. I'm diggin' the look from Madewell below paired with shorts and tights and am imagining some over-the knee boots in camel to finish it off (they're not just for hookers anymore).

Finally, taking the cue from my favorite hungry stylist, Miss Zoe, who I watched spend probably enough money to pay off my mortgage on Chanel tweedies, I'm looking to add a more affordable version of the Jackie-O staple which I hope to be pairing with some perfectly embellished leather flats.

Ann Taylor Loft Long Sleeved Cowl-necked tunic, $49.50
Bensimon Sneakers, $55
Madewell Sweater Blazer, $168
Free People Over the Knee Boots, $170
Free People Coco Tweed Jacket, $198
Mango Studded Ballet Flats, $84

Now, time to find a night job :)
