I always jump the gun on fall. Especially the clothes. I love summer, but by the end of it I’m always ready to move on to the next season. I remember one particular first day of school in 5th or 6th grade, I was so pumped to wear this new fall outfit. My mom helped me order it from the J.C. Penney catalog, and it was a purple print turtleneck with a purple knit cardigan that went over it. And I reallllly wanted to wear it, and I did, and I roasted all day long. But I loved that outfit.
I still do the same thing, and I pull my sweaters out way too early. But I don’t care. This year, I’m relying on maternity jeans and loose comfy sweaters with lots of accessories to trick everybody into thinking I don’t look like a house. I’ve been eyeing this yellow sweater (my tastes haven’t changed much since elementary school, apparently) for a few weeks and wouldn’t you know it, it’s out of stock now. Dangit! Should have jumped on that when I had the chance. But in the meantime, here are a few of my fall faves.
Ahhhh it’s all so good. Don’t you just love to switch gears in the fall? For some reason one of the things I most look forward to is leaving behind all the bright crazy nail polish colors and going for something either so dark it’s almost black, or a barely-there neutral. And that little cat ring would look pretty killer on some digits with a fresh manicure.
And okay, okay, I know the watch is a pipe dream (I usually only share things here that I would actually spend the money to buy), but it was too pretty to leave out. So while I won’t be owning it any time soon, I’m on the lookout for a similar mens-inspired leather watch to rock out this fall.
What’s your fave? Do you look forward to a little fall style refresh? Or do you hang onto summer for dear life? xoxo
P.S. Apparently I always do this.
