october wishlist

one // two // three // four // five // six

Staying in line with the holes in my closet for fall, I'm wishing for some really versatile, stylish pieces this month. I've been lusting over the wool J.Crew mini skirt for two years now, so hopefully I can add it to my closet this month. I've been trying to thrift a knee length, navy, polka dot skirt for pretty much my whole life, and I might just give up on the dream now that I've found this skirt from Ruche. My fall wishlist also included a big leather bag and a peter pan collared sweater. I would love to be able to splurge on this scalloped bag from ASOS. It's the perfect big girl bag, am I right? And I'm digging the stripes and lace on the Anthropologie sweater. Finally, I'm all about head scarves right now, and this sweet floral print one will go with so many different looks.

The big wish this month is a new pair of specks. Specifically, the Simply Fabulous frames from BonLook in Havana. I tried them on at TxSC and fell. in. love. I really need a new pair because my prescription needs to be renewed. I've always wanted tortoise shell frames that were a little bigger than my current pair, and these caramel-colored ones fit the bill better than any I've found. I'm trying so hard to win BonLook giveaways across the blogosphere, but since my promotion at work comes with a salary, I might be rewarding myself with a splurge purchase.

What are you wishing for this month?


  1. That bag is a must have! I usually love anything with scallops, but this is just soooo amazing.

    Congrats on your promotion, you totally deserved it! And what's a celebration without a splurge and marg?


  2. I love everything on this list! I love my current glasses, but I've been wanting a bigger, nerdy girl pair and haven't found the perfect ones yet (I really feel like I need to try them on in person). I have a small face, so it's tricky found a pair that's big but not too big, but someday it will happen! The past couple of winters I have been the worst about wearing jeans and boots and a sweater and a scarf every day (with some dresses sprinkled in there), so this year I'm really hoping to venture out and try layering skirts. It gets tricky because you've got to match a skirt and a blouse and tights and shoes and accessories, but that also makes it fun.


  3. I literally want everything in this post. That sweater is calling my name, and I'm still on the hunt for a midi skirt!

  4. I will take one of everything, thank you very much!

    (seriously.. I shouldn't have looked at this. I WANT THAT J.CREW SKIRT MORE THAN SHOULD BE ALLOWED.)


  5. Such a vintage wishlist, I love number one! Couldn't resist all those things <3

  6. those glasses! That bag! did you go for it?!
