My Fall Wishlist: Modcloth

Items Beginning at top: Got it Going Pom Headband in Teal, Sweet, Sweet Fantasy Dress, We Umber-stand Socks, Upwardly Mobile Satchel in Cambridge University, Scales of Justice Heel, Woodland Wonderland Jacket

Like I said in the previous post, it's finally beginning to feel like fall down here in Tennessee. The leaves are falling, the wind is blowing, and in the mornings it's down to a crisp 55 degrees (unfortunately by the afternoons it's still up in the 70s, but that's a minor detail...). This is the first fall where I won't be traveling back up to NH even for just a few days since my family is down here now. I'm wistfully thinking of the gorgeous leaves in my old neighborhood, chilly afternoon drives up to the mountains, and hot apple cider. Oh, and of course being incredibly jealous that their fall is in full swing up in New England (and probably has been for over a month!). To celebrate autumn's slow but sure creeping presence down South, I've made a little wishlist on my favorite site to peruse for outfit inspiration, gifts, and of course, fun wishlists (that I pleadingly send to my parents around Christmas-time and Birthdays as well :).

It was so difficult to narrow down my choices, my wishlist was full of fun blouses with bows and peter pan collars, a striped skirt, a pair of cream clogs, and many lovely fall dresses! I was most taken with the green coat, which seems as though it would be the perfect solution to this transitional period of seasons that Nashville is experiencing, something that is not too light yet not too heavy of a coat. Paired with knee socks, a lovely and cozy looking cream dress (I can't even begin to tell you how obsessed with cream I am right now!), those fun little chunky heels, and a collegiate satchel (which is unfortunately sold hoo). Last but not least, I added the adorable pom pom head band for a pop of color and whimsy..very Sonia Rykiel F/W 2010, no?

Now I'm off to do a bit of studying and paper writing..oh and LOTS of tea drinking (caffeine is the only thing that will get me through it all!) Happy Sunday Darlings!

Outfit Revisited: Autum Update

Outfit Details:

Dress (worn as a top)- Vintage
Skirt- H&M
Tights- Target
Boots- Dolce Vita for Target
Necklace- F21
Suitcase Purse- Anthropologie
Jacket- Macy*s
Sunglasses- Fred Flare

I loved this outfit so much over the summer that I decided to put it on again! Only now since it is a bit cooler (finally!), I added tights, boots, and a little jacket. It's one of those outfits that makes me feel really awesome all day, a lacy, sparkly, combat boot mood-booster for sure! Yesterday I had to take my exit exam at college and it covered everything I've learned in the past 4 years in my business classes (eek!). So naturally, I needed an extra special ensemble! Later on I treated myself to a pedicure, Sweet Ceces (to DIE for frozen yogurt in Tennessee!), and even landed myself a job interview for next week at the company I REALLY want to work for! So besides the test, it was a pretty lovely Friday!
