The Gray Area

I have seen lots of suede boots and platforms for the fall and the more I see the more I think I want to roll the dice and scoop up a pair. Here are a few that I really like. Its not like I can really afford all of these, but its nice to daydream.

Leather Lovahs

I own one leather jacket. I love it to pieces, but I have never been a big leather lady. But I am definitely digging the leather bomber and military-inspired options that are big for the fall. I can't say that I have decided, but here are a few that I am mulling over:

KORS Michael Kors Walnut Belted Jacket - $375

Andrew Marc Leather Bomber - $315

Kookai Leather Bomber - $351.54

Asos Pintucked Bomber - $158.10

Ted Baker Bomber - $548.70

Calvin Klein Leather Scuba Jacket - $298.00

Kenneth Cole Reaction Short Jacket - $338.00

The Most Versatile Piece

I am over the moon for this jersey cardigan by C&C California. It works by just throwing it on, wrapping it around the back of your waist, knotting it in front, or even swinging it up and around your shoulder. I just ordered this one from Shopbop in black and think it will be a piece I live in as the weather starts to cool off (at least until I can bust out my thicker knits).

Affection for Anthropologie

I have tons of reasons for being smitten with a lot of stuff that Anthropologie offers. The first being, their pieces have lots of personality. I also feel like (whether its actually true or not is another thing) that I don't run the risk of seeing stuff that I grab from Anthropologie on one of my friends. That's not to say my friends don't have great style, I just feel like its more likely to happen with stuff from J. Crew or the Gap. And finally, I always feel like their clothes are feminine without being too girly, which I absolutely love. I am smitten with three different dresses that I discovered in my newest catlog, including Buttonwood Sweater Dress - $158.00; Rippled Jade Dress - $158.00; and Alloy Strapless Dress - $188.00.

I am also digging the Labyrinthine Tee - $48.00; the Sidewalk Bistro Pullover - $88.00; the Contoured Cardigan - $88.00; and the Gouache Blouse - $78.00. I think I have narrowed it down to one or two pieces that I can swing, so enjoy the others for me!

Nuts for Fall Knits

I am so excited about the abundance of cozy, chunky sweaters for the fall. In my opinion, if you are can only manage to add a piece or two to your fall rotation, consider one of the following options...they are fashion-forward (if that's important to you) and will keep you cozy and warm. I tried to post both casual options and versions that will get you through the work week.

Fall Accessories Obsession

In line with my previous post, these are the accessories that I lusting after right now for the fall.

Fall Dress Obsession

This is a big week for me...I plan to tackle my closet and then get a reasonable grip on what I need for the fall. However, I am obsessed with dresses...particularly ones in jewel tones that I can wear now and, with the right layers and accessories, work into the fall.
