Dear Fall: I hate you...please come soon!!!

Fall, oh Fall, wherefore art thou, Fall???

Now that all the new lines are coming out, I'm jonesing for fall somethin' fierce.

I didn't know if I could like the whole "paper bag" look (the name is seriously atrocious), but this whole look is giving me my answer: YES.

Hello, sexy secretary look.

I've already gushed about this top, but now I'm thinking I need the whole outfit.

PERFECTION. The stripes, the high-waisted flares, the blue frickin' shoes.
Anthro

I mean look at how adorable this top is:


And then there's the whole "Mad Men" craze. I'm crazed right along with everyone else.

Usually my rule is just accents of animal print...but this trench has me singing a different tune...


Perfect classic tie neck blouse...RAWR.


And Miss Kate always gets it right and I love this entire ensemble, especially the neon necklace (c:


Classic and comfy...and that color is *divine*...

What are *you* coveting this fine Friday?

OH I am very excited about Fall Fashion...however, I'm ok with the warm summer weather for now. I'm not ready for it to get cold yet! Burr!

Katie said...

Oh, me too! That green stripe top from Anthro is awesome... and the grey jcrew skirt in the top picture is great too!

I always feel like I miss out on the last little bit of summer because fall is my favorite season. So this year I'm trying really hard to make summer last. Not sure how long I can hold out though as I'm already going through my closet putting together fall outfits... which of course all include boots!

I have to say I'm leery of the paper bag skirts. I feel like they're doing nothing for my wastline. But I'm so happy that wide legs and flares are back! I can look taller again!

Natalie said...

So funny I almost did a post today about fall too! I am ready for some cool weather and to wear jeans again! BR knocked my socks off with the new collection and normally I am not too impressed.

Now I'm thinking fall! I love that feeling of slipping on jeans for the first time (probably because they are a bit loose after hectic summers) and a big chunky sweater! I also love the jeans with the green and white striped top!

Audrey you are reading my mind - I want fall clothes but just not yet (still too hot) but loving so many looks.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE all your picks! The paper bag skirt is something I'm still on the fence on (you really have to have a particular type of body to rock it) but the first look is absolutely to die for.

I'm coveting a whole new wardrobe! I feel like I've been wearing the same boring clothes forever, and I want to kick things up a notch or two. I'm diggin' that leopard print jacket, and love the colour of the sweater in the last picture.

Carrie @ Hazardous Design said...

Yikes! Fall is going to be here before we know it! I need to start saving some cash for new fall clothes. I'm loving the Mad Men look BR has going on.

I love love love that Antro shirt. That's going to be my new weight goal, if I can reach a weight where horizontal stripes don't make me look like I'm in two states at one, I'm totally getting it!
