let’s go pretend shopping for the season transition {horray!}

My Fall Transition Wishlist

It won’t be cool enough for boots, coats and scarves around here for a while, but I’m definitely ready to incorporate some new pieces into my wardrobe for the new season. {summer rut, anyone?} On my radar: darker palettes, classic shoes and bags in rich shades of camel, a practical and stylish backpack for every day, heavy shorts (perfect for pairing with tights and boots down the road), lightweight jackets, new shapes in denim, and lots o’ leopard. I spent entirely too much time perusing Polyvore this evening picking out my favorite things, but no bank accounts or credit cards were harmed in the making of this wish list set. All of these items are budget friendly basics and they’re just begging to jump in my closet before the end of September.

    oh my gosh summer rut, YES.
    I’ve been craving sweaters, boots and scarves SO much in the past couple of weeks.
    I just want to skip on out to the east coast where it’s at least a little cooler than Arizona and be happy as an acorn (is that even possible?). Ahhh. WINTER NEEDS TO COME. It’d at least make going to school a little less miserable.

    Keira! I bought some wide leg jeans by Olsenboye at JCP that fit beautifully! They’re very similar to the pair in your collage. I wore mine today, and I’ll have the post up this week.

    Thank you so much for this list! It’s perfect. I’ve been reading fall must-have lists from other bloggers, but you have things I can actually afford! I’m loving the safari jacket and the leopard scarf.

    I just put platform Guess loafers on layaway today, but I’m sorta coveting those loafer wedges from JCP! Decisions, decisions…
