Fall Finds

So this last week has been an exciting one for me. 3 words: J.Crew fall line. For the last couple weeks I’ve been getting pretty giddy every time a J.Crew email lands in my inbox (which is often). Only to be disappointed moments later by another summer sale. I’m not going to lie, I was getting pretty pissed off. I know its 90 degrees outside but I’m ready for some chunky sweaters ok? And then it came. I probably looked through the 12 pages of beautiful new arrivals online like 5 times. Once a day. Thats not weird. Anyways…this is what I found (photos are linked, just click).

These two babies are the perfected sweater of the one below that I lived in last season. This was the first thing that I saw on my email and my eyes popped into hearts and I knew it would be hanging in my closet some time soon. It currently is…

They brought this guy back… It’s an amazing sweater and everyone should own it. It has hidden pockets. Enough said.

So if you haven’t gotten the memo, stripes are the bees knees, for every season. Above are two of my favorite trends, somethin sparkly and a pop of leather. Also, I keep finding myself drawn to maroon and I think this shirt is perfection.

More stripes. But seriously..this sweater has all the best colors of fall and will go with ANYthing. I also think I can get away with I will wear this when its a little cooler (liiiike 80 degrees?). Whatever, no judgements.

Outerwear. So I missed out on this vest last year and I never forgave myself. I wanted the pink so badly but convinced myself I don’t need a pink vest (what was I thinking? Yes I do). Anyways, theres a similar one at J.Crew Factory that I’ve had my eye on for the past couple weeks. Crewcuts also has a similar one that I was so close to buying, I probably shouldn’t admit that. So, THEN I saw this one and the hunt was over. This goes with everything, the color is amazing and we all know I have a fair amount of pink shirts that I pair it up with. Now for the cocoon coat. It’s been on my wishlist for awhile now, they keep bringing it back! Coral probably isn’t the most classic color, maybe I’d opt for grey.

Now for accessories. As you have probably seen, camo is taking over. Its everywhere. And while I can appreciate it because its all about the casual-esque look, I opted for a camo accessory–a scarf. One: because I love all scarves. And two: because I don’t want to wake up a year from now and wonder why I have camouflage pants. Although I do LOVE my army green utility pants pictured here. I’m all for the trend but I do think it might be short lived. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect camel colored hobo. This Michael Kors one has fortunately¬†unfortunately been spotted and now I can’t stop thinking about it, its amazing.

 

In other news (shopping aside), I love this city! I was lucky enough to see my family this weekend, they’re the best!

Hopefully I’ll have some pics up soon of some fall outfits! Off to Ames next weekend for the first Iowa State game! Go Cyclones :)

 

All for now,
