Fall Fashion Lust List

Have you entered our Corral cowboy boots giveaway? Tomorrow is the last day to enter!

Happy Monday lovelies! This weekend was seemingly gone in an instant and I think it’s because the hubs was outta town…so you know what that means…the dude ran me ragged yet again! He just refuses to stick to his normal bedtime routine when Daddy’s not home. So, thanks to lots o’ middle of the night wake ups, I am T-I-R-E-D. I will say though, having your toddler give you smooches in an effort to convince you to let him stay up is truly heart melting. He’s such a little manipulator. HA! Anyhoo, whatΒ  do ya’ll do when you need to draw from energy reserves that simply aren’t there? Hook a sister up with your tips!

One thing that does typically perk me up is fashion. And while I may not be in NYC for fashion week right now, I’ve spent the last several days glued to Twitter, so I could live vicariously through all my lucky Tweeps who are at fashion week and, so I could drool over the collections. As much as I’ve been longing to bust out the fall fashion, I’m now dreaming about next spring thanks to so many fabulous showings at Lincoln Center! But it’s not spring after all. Autumn is officially upon us, so I thought I would show you what’s on my mind when it comes to updating my wardrobe for fall. They’re the pieces that are haunting my dreams mixed in with some reality!

    I recently moved from NYC to Florida so fall fashion is not really on my mind right now. ha But those are some beautiful finds! Since I’m northeast in Florida it can get quite cool in the winter. I’m really loving corduroy right now. Would love a coat in a truffle colored corduroy for the cooler days here!

    Those Steve Madden booties and that feather skirt are just perfect. I would love a feather skirt!! (probably for much less though, I fear). Not sure where I’d wear it, but maybe just wear it for the joy of wearing it I guess!!

    RE: The Tucker x Target butterfly cami – totally look online. They had a full selection still last night and the tank is only $22.99 I believe (or something close to it). I was lucky to score the dress online at Gilt and it’s equally as cute. Hey, $23 is almost unheard of!! Good luck and I hope you get one! If you have any trouble let me know and I’m happy to look for you down here.
