Gingham in the warmer months makes way for leopard print in the cooler ones.

Fall(ing for) Patterns

It's been fun thinking of what I want for the cooler months in terms of jewel colors ... and now I'm also dream shopping in accordance to pattern as well. Leopard print is a favorite "neutral" of mine for fall and winter so I am excited about adding more to my wardrobe - those mules are a must! Dark florals seem edgier than the normal bright flowery prints and plaid is a no-brainer. And of course stripes are good for me any time of the year!

16 Years


Now we have inscribed a new memory alongside those others. It's a memory of tragedy and shock, of loss and mourning. But not only of loss and mourning; it's also a memory of bravery and self-sacrifice and the love that lays down its life for a friend, even a friend whose name it never knew. - President George W. Bush

Jewel Tones

Cooler weather makes me think of richer colors and I am all about the jewel tones right now. Below are some of my current faves. The fuzzy green faux fur looks fun and luxurious but I don't think I could actually pull it off (plus it's a wee bit pricey for me). The red purse? Super duper high on my wish list right now - hoping for a sale soon! And both the yellow and blue slides? I am having a hard time picking between the two ...

August Wish List: Low, Mid & High End (& Bonus Sale)

My personal shopping wish list is never-ending and always-changing. Here are my latest wants - from the actual affordable things all the way to the "I wish I could" dream items. As always, links below are not affiliate. Have a lovely week!

Shopbop 1 LOW
The low I-can-actually-afford-these-things end of my wishlist. Actually about to hit "buy" on that cuddly BB Dakota coat right now even though I won't be able to wear it for probably another two months.

Shopbop 2 MID
The mid have-to-really-think-about-whether-I-want-to-spend-all-that-money-on-one-item part of my wishlist. The Tory Burch purse is a gorgeous shade of red though.

Shopbop 3 LUXE
The true "wish" part of my wishlist - the luxe items. I'm a sucker for a nice handbag and MCM has made a few of my recent favorite silhouettes. 

 As a bonus, Shopbop's sale items are on sale! Starting today for three days only, get an additional 20% off special sale styles with code TREAT20. This promotion ends on Thursday at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time. Shop early to get the best picks!

Wishlist at Every Price Point

We are still deeeeeep into summer right now but thanks for all those tricky retailers out there, part of my brain can't help but to think of fall fashion. So my wishlist of the moment revolve around pieces that I could wear now and into early fall.

I thought it'd be fun to show you my Shopbop wishlist broken out into a few price points - from less-than-$100 goodies to splurges that run closer to the $500 range (see below - the links are non-affiliate). Near the top of my wishlist now? Probably those gorgeous silver mules (under $100! ... having trouble narrowing down just one color), olive-hued anything from Rebecca Minkoff, and the sequinned patched Kate Spade beauty.
