Somehow I haven't done a wish I were wearing post in months. It's those transitional seasons that make me post them a lot, so I guess it was about time for another one. No matter how many pumpkin spice drinks I order, it doesn't really feel like fall here yet. However, that's not going to stop me from dressing like it!

My legs might be bare, but I'm still all about fall prints, pretty neutrals, and cozy layers. I love that this dress is navy and cognac, rather than the ever-popular black and cognac. Navy is one of my favorite colors to wear and it doesn't get enough attention. I really want one of these long, chunky cardigans this fall, but hadn't considered navy. Boden may have changed my mind on that one!

As for the clogs, I know I seem suddenly obsessed. It's because I am. I'm constantly searching for clogs other than Swedish Hasbeens (specifically options less than $100)! I found these Fine Life Co clogs on Pinterest and fell in love. They carry some really cute pairs, and for a much better price than Hasbeens. I love the idea of a closed-toe option for fall, and it doesn't get better than a smooth cognac.

Has anyone else noticed that bucket bags are back? These little totes were my jam when I was a kid in the '90s. Of course, today's version is updated and chic. This ASOS bag is right up my alley with its tassels and gold detailing. Speaking of tassels, I'm into Bauble Bar's delicate take on the tassel necklace, with a longer chain and more charms to love. 


  1. I love that dress and the sweater looks so comfy!

  2. I am really not a dress person, but almost every time you highlight a dress I think I could maybe wear it & feel comfortable. Navy and cognac is a color combo I'll have to investigate further.

  3. So I really love this outfit. I can definitely see you rocking this exact ensemble - it has "Nicole" written all over every piece.

  4. This is definitely a Nicole outfit! That dress is adorable, and I kinda sorta really need that necklace in my life.

  5. I love those clogs! I've been wanting a neutral color pair but man, Swedish Hasbeens are so expensive! Thanks for finding some alternatives for me to drool over :)
