OK so maybe fall isn't really here...but the weather in Chicago would have you believing otherwise. It has just been beautiful out. The bike rides (yes I started riding a bike again) that once brought about a nice sweat now require that I wear a jacket. I love this time of the year. It just feels like the air is laced with anticipation or hope. Fall will forever hold a special place in my heart and the clothing is my favorite thing about it. As I have been making the rounds on my favorite blogs I see too that everyone else is equally as excited for autumn. Of course the dilemma is always the same...what do I wear? What new pieces do I buy?
The above is the new Built By Wendy Fall 08 Collection. I am fairly certain that I need every single piece. Can it get any better? Not only does it have the perfect plaid shirts that I am longing for (I have decided that I just need to make one), but it has the corduroy jumper I would covet. I think this collection would feel right at home in my closet!
The always fantastic Jenny Gordy of Wiksten Made debuted her new fall collection last week and I just can't get enough of it. This outfit is just the epitome of everything I want this fall...vibrant color, mixing of black and brown, scarf, flat boots. NEED NEED NEED! I do believe that the Alison Skirt would be perfect with my mustard color tights, thats all I am saying!
And then there was TOAST. This amazing British company has just about the perfect fall catalogue right now. Every single picture is amazing and I just want to be a TOAST girl. That is now the number one goal in my life...to eventually look like I walked off these glossy pages!
