On My List This Season...

Fall Wish List

What I've learned about the most these past few months is how to budget my money.
Life became much more real when my paychecks started going towards medical insurance, rent, and student loans. Why is it again that when I was in high school I couldn't wait to be in my 20's? Anyway, my budget is tight, but I have portioned out some spending money for the times when window shopping just.won'

I chose these 5 pieces to complete my fall wardrobe--knowing I only really want these five items, makes it easier to ditch the impulse buys and random purchases I don't need. 

1. Ballet Slipper Pink. OPI nail polish. I was fully on board with the pastel trends of spring and can't seem to let go. And this whimsical pink never gets old.
2. Brocade Skirt. My mom bought me a black and gold brocade dress earlier this year and I instantly fell in love with the texture. I think the rich gold and classic patterns pair great with a soft sweater, worn in boots, and tights. 
3.  Polka Dot Skimmers. The fact that these are neutral, gold, and covered in polka dots is perfection--classic and fun.
4. Lavender Chunky Knit. The color and cut of this cozy sweater caught my attention immediately. I can already think of a million different outfit combinations to wear it with. 
 5. Black Maxi Skirt. I would have loved to add this to my summer wardrobe, but am still on the hunt for the right one. I think this piece easily transitions into fall and can't wait to pair it with my cream colored moto jacket.
