Fall Fashion Favs

Around this time of year I'm always pleasantly surprised that I'm not completely disgusted by the idea of having to start dressing in warmer clothes. Granted, the excitement wears off by about January 1st, but at least there are a couple of months in there where I think winter clothes are fun.

I've been craving a major shopping trip. Too bad it's November and my spending money is basically exiled until after Christmas.

So,  if I WERE allowed to go shopping, here's what I would be/am all about this winter (and, okay, maybe a lot of these things are the same things I was into last winter... and the winter before that... I'm not big on change):

Leggings. Obvi. Does anyone else get completely stuck on something for years at a time? I've been living in these things from the moment I get home until I get ready for work the next morning. I just love them because you can wear them anywhere and dress them up or down accordingly. To lounge, to sleep, to workout, to the grocery store, to dinner paired with a cute tunic. With flats, with boots, with tennis shoes.

When you can't get away with wearing leggings, skinny jeans will do as a replacement. But I still refuse to wear them with anything other than boots. And I usually find 9 out of 10 pairs that I try on to be absolutely hideous on me. As far as skinny jeans are concerned I must have a really awkward body ratio. If they fit me in the hips, the waist is about 4 inches too big.

{My favorite pair are Joe's - but for the record, this particular image is absolutely heinous in my opinion. I can't stand the way skinny jeans look unless they are covered by boots}

Any and every long top. Sweatshirts, sweaters, tunics, v-neck tee's. Anything that can be easily paired with leggings. Being only 5'1" you would think that finding long shirts would be an easy task. Notttt so. I've been on the lookout for several weeks now and have only found two or three good ones. As an alternative I've stocked up on some t-shirts from Victoria's Secret that are really long and I just layer them under shorter shirts.

I've also really been wanting a long sleeve lace shirt (and to be as cute as this model!). Preferably in white or cream. I think they look perfect paired with a cute scarf. I would definitely be wearing a non-see-through shirt underneath though. :)

Trouser jeans. I don't have a pair but I'm on the lookout. I think they are so classy and chic!

Cute, bright-colored lacy and frilly scarves. Love them.

{Of course my favs are at Target}

As far as shoes go, some things never change. I'm obsessed with all of the following:

Boat shoes. 


{Classic TOMS in Ash Canvas}

Fuzzy moccasins.

And as always, for the coldest days, Uggs.

If you're someone who needs Christmas ideas for me, I just made your life pretty easy.

Now... let's see how long it takes for me to start blogging about summer clothes.

Hey Jenna! My bf just found Sperry's at Kohl's on sale for $20!! He was at a Kohl's in Laredo (and I assume the Sperry's trend isn't quite the things amongst the drug runners) but still worth taking a look in Lubb!

I also started a blog! Come check it out!
