We are into the thick of October but it hasn’t felt very autumnal. Ohio has been warmer than usual and sadly, the trees have barely begun to change color. I finally packed up all of my shorts and summery bits and I’m already wearing my flannels and sweaters on a daily basis thanks to extreme office AC. At the first signs of cooler weather, you can bet that I will be finally adding my boots to my daily routine. I have been watching various YouTube videos about autumn capsule wardrobes and I have added a couple things to my wardrobe already but I wouldn’t mind adding a few more pieces before winter hits. As is my tradition, I have put together my autumn picks and current wish list for fall.
For summer, my wish list wasn’t terribly long but sadly I have only picked up one item from it, the Daisy Natives tee. Chris and I need to get our spare bathroom in order with the wall paper I just haven’t taken the time to measure the walls yet (I really am terrible at accomplishing home projects).
I’ve said it a million times but one of the best things about autumn is the fashion. I live for jeans-and-sweater weather. I probably have more sweaters than I really need but Madewell makes some of the softest sweaters and this cashmere style and color is not something I currently own. One thing that I currently do not own but have been eyeing towards the end of summer is a camel coat. I love my grey coat I picked up a couple of years ago but I would like to add some variety with a different style. A camel coat is classic and definitely something I see myself wearing for many years.
The two miscellaneous items on this autumn picks list are the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and Bleachers LP. In the autumn, I still don’t wear too much makeup but I love the idea of a dark, vampy lip. I have a couple Velvet Matte Lip Pencils and they are great. I have dry, sensitive lips so it isn’t the most comfortable formula but it does last quite well, which is a must for me. As for the record, Chris and I are slowly adding to our collection and especially in cold weather, there is something magical about playing a record rather than streaming music through our Google Home. This Bleachers album has been one of my current favorites.
Wrapping up my autumn picks, I have a couple home wish list items. I have been thinking about purchasing a set of linen sheets for a while now, as I am someone who runs a bit hot at night and love that linen sheets stay cool to the touch yet are soft. I probably have no business putting all white sheets on my bed since I have pets but they are just so pretty and crisp! If I do place an order, I will likely get the light grey just to be a bit more practical. The second home item is the Save the Bees print. I am forever decorating my house with pops of yellow, as it is my favorite color, and this print is perfect for that. I love the bold graphic style and color and have a few different places in mind in my home.
Just like with my past seasonal wish lists, I am sure I will not pick many of these up. If I had to pick my top items, I would go for the Zara coat, Bleachers album, and NARS lip pencil. I could see myself enjoying these items over and over throughout autumn and winter (which is coming all too soon). Happy Friday, everyone!
