My Fall Wish List

The thing that’s awesome about being a lifestyle blogger is we love to write about seasons and holidays. I know that might sound a little sarcastic but I mean it. I enjoy reading posts about what others love about fall or Christmas or summer. I think it’s the voyeuristic trend our society has taken in the last 20 years. I love knowing what others are doing and how they are doing it.

Every year I look forward to October – December because I love fall, I love the holidays, and I love to write about what I love.

That’s a lot of love right there folks!

I’m not a fan of what comes after fall but how can you not love this time of year. Especially if you live in an area of the country where seasons change. Who can resist the beauty of leaves turning? The smell of cinnamon and pumpkin spice lattes? Sweater weather, hot apple cider, and bonfires?

Not this gal that’s for sure.

This year I decided to mix it up a bit and write about what I WANT for fall rather than what I love about fall (of course I already mentioned what I love. I had to get that in somehow.)

There are a few key things that have been on my wishlist for fall that I wanted to share.

I need a new scarf. I used to have a million scarves. Ok, I had about 25 and when I did a minimalist stroll through my closet earlier this year I tossed all but 2. Because I didn’t wear them. When I went to Australis earlier this year with my friend Gina I’ve been coveting her scarf. It was neutral in color and light so good for year ‘round use. 

Now that it’s fall I’ve been thinking more and more about that scarf and decided it’s time to get one of my own. Since I wanted it to be all season I steered away from knitted and fur though this is a pretty kick ass looking scarf. I just don’t think it would go well with my yoga pants.

Since I primarily wear black, or some shade of black like grey, I wanted to go with a black scarf but not all black. Even though that was hard for me to stay away from.

I finally came across this one and ordered it. 

Next on my list was a new cardigan. I have 3 black cardigans so I was looking for a grey or a cream. Again something that would go with all my black and maybe spice it up a little. I decided on this one.

I love the texture. It’s a little pricier than what I wanted to spend but I will wear it almost every day so it will pay for itself.

Last year I threw away my everyday boots that I’d worn for the last couple years. They were scuffed to the point they didn’t look good and I needed new ones. I knew if I threw them out I’d have no choice but to buy new instead of wearing threw or out ones another season.

For as long as I can remember I’ve spent most the winter in tall boots. This year I decided to go out of my comfort zone and get these ankle boots. Yeah, I live on the edge. I like the way they look and they seem super comfy.

I’ve wanted a pair of Hunter rainbows for years but I still can’t get past the price. But aren’t they so pretty?

The last thing on my fall list has been on the general list of things I want for the last 2 years. When we moved into our current house we bought this gorgeous table and chairs set. However, after getting shipped 3 tables that were all sent back due to defects we canceled our order.  We’ve been searching for the right table ever since.

We’re having Friendsgiving on November 4th so I have a renewed sense of urgency for a new table. I’ve bought a lot form Hayneedle this year, as I was working on our outdoor space, and I found this table which I love. But I’m still looking.

I recently ordered these items and they haven’t come in yet. So you get to see the pretty stock model instead of me. I know, you’re totally disappointed. 

Well, don’t be!

Happy fall!

  1. Fall is by far my favourite time of year and I love to stock up on cozy scarves, big fluffy sweaters and rustic boots. I just love everything about fashion and home decor in this season.

  2. I agree that writing about what you love is so important!! I love that there are so many of us that love so many of the same things! I can’t wait to see pics of you in that scarf!!!

  3. Hi Laina, I also love fall and holidays. I liked your decision of wearing the cardigan. I will also try wearing cardigans in fall season to look fashionable. Thanks for sharing such a nice blog.
