Fall Wardrobe Thoughts

Today felt like Fall. I wore a sweater and cropped dress pants (had a presentation and crushed it!). So the warmer, cozier clothes made me start to think about things that I'd want to consider purchasing around September. Also - I saw Xin do a post like this and was inspired! Check out her blog to see her post. 

1. Clarks Desert Boots - specifically in this color. I've always loved this style of shoe - it inspires a sense of adventure in me, à la Anthony Bourdain. I also really like the masculine look to them too. 

 2. A Jean Jacket in a Light Wash - I've been wanting one for a while now. I admit I haven't been actively searching for one, and just hoping that I'd encounter one that fit my criteria. I'd like it just slightly cropped, and in the right blue. A jean jacket is so versatile across seasons. Lately with the cold summer we've been having, I find myself standing in front of my closet wishing that I could just throw one on. 

3. A Structured Leather Crossbody - Something along the lines of this look, but a little less deep. Or maybe exactly like that, as in that specific one. I love leathers in the fall, especially in a rich cognac. 

4. A Black Leather Jacket - Again, this is something that I've been searching for, for a long long time. Something classic, probably biker inspired and on the tougher side. Especially because my entire wardrobe feels soft - cottons, rayons, really flowy, comfortable and loose fabrics. I look to jackets and handbags for the structure in my outfits. 

What are you thinking for fall?


  1. congrats on your presentation! I think the desert boots are a good choice, classic.
