My Future BFF

If I buy only one thing this Fall it will be Rebecca Minkoff's Clutch.

I think it is the most perfect clutch in the whole wide world! Ok, that might be a bit much but I think it's so versatile and the size is great. You can wear it during the day to run errands but it's nice enough to go out at night for dinner and drinks. The problem is I've already bought a $400 dollar bag this year and I only allow myself one per year. Though it was for work so it shouldn't really count, right?

Summer Score

I love cute little summer dresses. Who doesn't? That's why I'm extremely thrilled that I was able to grab Anthropolgie's Bubble Hem dress that was originally $128 for $29.95!!! $29.95!!!! (Glad I got it when I did, my size is already gone!) I sometimes go straight to the sale section of the the website to see what deals I can score. I already know what shoes (black strappy wedge sandals with a cork heel) and jewelry (long gold chain with small gold medallions hanging around half the chain) I'm going to wear with this dress. I love bubble hem dresses. I know they're not a favorite of many people but I can't get enough of them. I just can't wait for it to come in. Had to be delivered because the closest Anthropologie to me is like an hour away. Not cool.

The Study of Human Nature

Lately, I've been in love with just about everything at Anthropologie. They have the cutest "girly" dresses that make me want to buy them all and the then wear them while frolicking through a park. Which, if you knew where I lived that would be a priceless image. Not only do they have great clothes but they have an amazing line of home furnishings. Every time I go to their website I get the urge to redecorate. I only wish there was a store closer to me. Actually, it's probably a good thing that there isn't.

Here are some of my favorites at Anthropologie:

Biker Babe

I don't know why but recently I've been really into leather. Wait. Let me be more specific. Lately, I've been into leather jackets. Whether it's paired with floral dresses or skinny jeans and tanks, I'm really digging the look. I always think of leather jackets as a way to make your outfit a little edgy.

Express now has faux leather jackets. Their (MINUS THE) Leather jackets are animal friendly and inexpensive. I haven't seen them in person (hmm, maybe I'll stop by this week) so they might look like cheesy pleather but if that's not the case then I wouldn't mind picking up the (MINUS THE) LEATHER BELTED JACKET.

I know it's summer and I should be thinking of summer dresses and wedge sandals but honestly the way this summer has been going, how can you blame me for thinking of outerwear. Anyway, I would lose the belt and wear it unzipped with a plain white tank, dark grey skinny jeans, and black open toes booties. Now that would be a pretty edgy outfit. For me at least.*

Wishing Away

So far my one and only item I would put on my Fall Wish List would be these:

I love these these grey Stella McCartney Slouchy suede-effect boots! I think they are perfect in every way. Ok, I haven't tried them on and they might be incredibly uncomfortable but I love their look. I like that the heel is 3.5 inches and a little wider then most of the shoes I wear. Believe it or not I can walk in a heel of 3.5 inches very comfortably. All that being said they are quite expensive and for now they will remain only a wish item unless they miraculously get marked down to an affordable price. Keep wishing, right!

Getting Back in the Swing of Things

I recently got a new AWESOME job which I already love after only three weeks! My old job had an extremely casual work attire policy; not so much in the financial industry where I work now. Everyone is always professionally dressed and almost always wearing suits. So I figured I needed to go out and get some basics to add to my wardrobe that could go along way. These are my picks:

As you can see J.Crew is always a great place to start!
