  3. Thanks for this post, it's inspiring, especially silk scarves. I'm trying to track down a black peplum shirt from Zara that they have on their site, but didn't find it in the store :( and this year's must have for me are heeled boots, also from Zara. I've been craving about them for at least a year :)

  6. I don't know if I'm so into the trends, but more textures. I'm obsessing over houndstooth, wool, and chunky knits. I really want to have that chic fall look this year that's girly and boyish, so I'm finding cardigans, boots, long socks, coats, and blazers. The trends are definitely inspirational though. I do love me a good military jacket! <3

    1. I'm on the same boat! I think mixing textures will be a lot easier during the fall since there are more knits and leathers coming out. I can't wait to see your OOTDs once it gets colder :) I loveeeee long socks.

  12. Great list! I am wanting a nice fall satchel, a new pair of oxfords, and I am loving the silk scarves. I am hoping I can get them all vintage or thrifted though, we will see! I usually cave in and buy it somewhere if I cannot find it fast enough! haha
    Hope you're having a great day !
