Happy Friday, friends! What is everyone up to this weekend? I'll be heading up to Boulder for a little rendez-vous with some old friends. I can't wait! In the meantime, I'm lusting after this adorable faux fur chubby by Ms. Kate Spade. Isn't it so adorable? I do believe it's the perfect outerwear for cocktails on the patio, no? Or a little something to throw over one of those ball gowns hanging in your closet.
OK, all - Fall is here and that means I'm waaaay overdue on creating my Fall Wishlist. Lucky girl, you say, to have BOTH a Proenza Schouler bag as well as a Burberry trench on her list of must-haves. HA! This is my wish list meaning I will never actually own these things but I'm hoping some magical fairy godmother will swoop down and place them in my closet. What? It could happen. ANYWAY, here is what I'm coveting for fall.
Purse: I'm way into all these Aztecy (yes, that's a word - according to me) prints, so when I came across dear Proenza's version I immediately swooned. It's colorful! Earthy! And costs more than my car!
Boots: I live in Colorado, so let's be real. There is no way in hell I can even pretend I'm going to be flitting around town in a cute pair of heels. Why? Two reasons: who are we kidding, I never wear heels because I feel tall and gangly and weird. Also, I suffer from a rare condition called Frozen Foot and unless Louboutin's come with socks, they're a no-go. Hence, these Frye boots are perfect for me. They allow me to wear tights and socks, plus they won't get my feet wet when I step into an ankle deep puddle, which I most certainly will.
Sweater: Everyone (yes, everyone) needs a classic navy blue sweater. Why? Because it's warm. And you can wear it with jeans. And it fits under a coat and won't make you look "puffy" (as my dad so nicely told me once when I wore a sweatshirt beneath my coat). You can even get this one monogrammed like all the fancy people! Done and done.
Jeans: I need a new pair every season because I am a jeans-a-holic. There, I said it.
Trench:Dahling, every girl needs to own at least one Burberry coat. It's, like, SO necessary*. I say go for something yummy and camel colored. It's so Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffanys.
*Don't worry if you're evicted because you can't afford rent after splurging on a $1,000 coat - the coat will keep you warm while sleeping on a park bench. Plus you'll be the best looking homeless person on the block.
