August Wish List

CorkBoard[1]

  • It must be getting closet to that time where I tire of summer and think of nothing but tweed and wool and tights. I've been coveting that adorable peter pan collared dress from Lover for ages. It's completely out of my reach, but I also really like the tweed one from UO.
  • I somehow always end up with lots of sleeveless jumpers and wool skirts for winter and can't figure out what to wear with them. I dreaming a bit here, but cashmere t-shirts sound like the perfect answer.
  • A military inspired short coat for those days in between summer and fall.
  • Maybe this will be the year I finally get my hands on a pair of brown riding boots. I like these Frye ones but don't have the patience to break in a new pair, so I'll be looking for used ones on Ebay
  • The cut-out details on these lace up oxfords would look perfect with tights.
  • Of course I'll be topping everything off with a wool beret. One in each color please!

Great wishlist!
I finally scored a pair of riding boots this past spring from Anthropologie....I waited forever for them to go on sale since last fall. I am dreaming of cashmere t-shirts too.
I know most people are not ready for fall, but I can't wait - this TX summer of 100+ temps is getting old fast.

Such a beautiful array of items to wish for. Berets are my list too, I'm convinced that this year will be the one in which I finally muster up the courage (I've never thought I looked good in hats) to wear one.


Wishing you a gorgeous, serene Sunday,
♥ Jessica

I do a lot of cashmere t-shirts. Very useful!

That Lover dress is just so adorable- but then all of their stuff is. You're making me even more eager for Fall then I was- and I didn't think that was possible!

Ahh I'm totally the same, peter pan collars and berets and lace up oxfords! I can't find any to buy in the shops though, and I never have a clue what to search on ebay to find anything :)

Autumn?! Already?!
Nah, I'm already planning outfits in my head... I just can't bring myself to really admit it.

Just found a military/flight jacket at the local thrift store and I am so psyched to wear it during the season transition.

Mm I second the military coat, rainbow of berets and those heels, whoo! That photo of that girl is adorable, liking the androgyny.

I have also been looking for a pair of flat riding boots. Tough hunt for a vegetarian...

But yeah, really can't wait to see you in some of these things. :}}
