This is my first fall in SF and I’m starting to notice it doesn’t feel quite like the fall I’m used to in Iowa. The leaves don’t change colors and I haven’t felt a crispness in the air. I’m told October is the best month of the whole year here in the Bay Area because it’s warm and sunny all the time, which is an interesting thought, but an exciting one. So while it’s not 50 degrees and cold enough yet to break out the pea coat and chunky sweaters, I am getting verrryyy anxious as I see all of the new cozy arrivals. SF actually feels like fall 3/4 of the year so I’m creating my wish list and stocking up on my must-have fall pieces.
Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots are more of a fantasy item on my list. Their $600 price tag is a little (ok, alot) high, but a girl can dream, right? I definitely think it’s worth investing in certain pieces (like leather boots I’d wear for years), but unless someone is feeling realllyyy generous, I might have to hold off on these for a while. *Sigh* Luckily these black over the knee boots (only $70!) (similar) are close and cost a fraction of the price. Stacked heel booties are so versatile (wear with dresses or jeans) and I love the warm brown color. Fall is all about layers and I love this Target dot blouse for under itchy sweaters or just for fun like Christine did here. This dolman sleeved sweater is quite possibly the softest and coziest looking sweater ever. I love wearing jackets and blazers so this is a perfect layering tank to wear underneath. I cannot get enough of faux leather jackets (on sale!) these days. I love these chic Gray suede booties. I’m breaking the no white after Labor Day rule and wanting to finally get my hands on a classic white blazer. This past weekend I tried on this cocoon sweater and ended up not purchasing it, and now I’m regretting it.
What’s on your fall wish list? Is there anything I should check out? I’m still on the hunt for a new wool coat and taking recommendations!
