My fall accessories wishlist has no rhyme or reason. If I'm speaking truthfully, I really don't need anything - but that's no fun! This season I'm particularly drawn to studs (big shocker there) and fun animal prints.
I've also come to the executive decision that if I buy a bag it's going to be an investment piece - no more faux leather for this girl! My mom recently purchased the Kate Spade Lola bag in hunter green and I fell in love with it's shape and large buckle. I realized I have no white handbags, so I purchased the Lola in the horchata color. I happened to get the bag on a flash sale for $199.00, plus an extra 15% off - it was quite a steal.

I only wear flats - I have never found a pair of heels to be comfortable. For fall I'm leaning towards unique flats with fun characteristics - multiple straps and big bows to name a few.
I am always on the hunt for great sneakers. Vans is one of my favorite sneaker brands, and to no surprise, they have some awesome options for fall. I find that a good pair of sneakers goes a long way in NYC, as I do a ton of walking.
Lastly, I'm looking to purchase whimsical and western-inspired jewelry. Ever since my trip to Santa Fe I cannot stop lusting after western jewels. One of my favorite jewelry designers, Vanessa Mooney, has a great selection of unique pieces. I'm particularly drawn to her dreamer necklace that is reminiscent of the Native American squash blossom necklace.
I have already stocked up on a few of my favorite accessories from the list above. You should expect to see me wearing some on the blog in the near future!

I wanted to write this whole post about how I'm so above fashion week - but maybe I'm not. It's 10pm at night and I'm enjoying browsing through the street style photos from this September's fashion week.
I'll go ahead and say I'm not opposed to the deluge of street style photos. However, I'm not a huge fan of the runway pictures themselves.
What better way to honor fashion week than with a post on my favorite street style icon, Joanna Hillman. I love Joanna's quirky and eclectic style.
Joanna's fashion choices always stand out which is something I hope to do with my own personal style.
I'll shut-up now as the photos truly speak for themselves.

Fall is upon us. It seems like only yesterday I was bundled up in sweaters wishing for summer. As typical of me, I have quite a lengthy fall wishlist - some of which is already in my closet.
For this upcoming season, I'm craving chunky cardigans and statement sweatshirts.
A couple of weekends ago my parents and I visited Lululemon and Kate Spade where I was able to satisfy both of my wishlist desires. While you wouldn't expect Lululemon clothes to be wearable outside of the gym, I'd like to argue that they are definitely street style worthy. I bought a great chunky knit cardigan from their fall collection that I plan on wearing over all my dresses during the colder months. I really love how Luluemon's long sleeved items have thumbholes to keep you hands warm in the cold.
I also went ahead and bought another pair of my favorite pants, from Eileen Fisher, in dark blue. They are incredibly comfortable, which is probably why I own them in several colors. I think of them as my Audrey Hepburn pants, as they hit me right at the ankle and are very classic.
Lastly, I'm lusting after unique dress silhouettes in fun prints. Old Navy has outdone themselves again this fall with some great items. I'm really loving the snow leopard shirt dress that I plan on wearing with boots and a belt.
I guess you can say my 2014 fall wishlist is all about classic, comfortable clothes.
Stay tuned for my fall accessories wishlist coming up next week!
