If any of you love school as much as I do, you’ll know how exciting it is getting ready for the first week back, whether it be high school, college, or university there is always some preparation (and shopping :p ) required.
Although it can be tempting to go out and do a total wardrobe overhaul for the new school year, it really isn’t practical. It’s best to get a few things you’re really looking forward to buying and any basics you may need (jeans, tanks, sneakers), then add to your wardrobe throughout the year.
So these are my wishlist items for Fall 2012.
#1) Jeans!: I personally can never have enough jeans. They go with everything, are super easy to incorporate into an outfit in a rush, and are a wardrobe basic. Of course I will be getting super basics pairs like; dark wash, light wash, and black. I also want to add some burgundy, floral, and leopard prints to my closet.
#2) Black Purse: A black hobo bag/satchel with gold accents is most definetly on my wish list for fall. Over the last few years I have been trying to control my purchasing when it comes to purses, bags, clutches because I had so many (too many?) However I have grown out of several of them, and really only have about 4 or 5 I actually use. I mean seriously, can I really pull off the preppy, baby blue barrel bag from the 7th grade anymore? Nope. Which also leads me to my next fall must-have…
#3) Big Blue Purse: Since I have the black purse on my list I figured I should have a statement bag to have a somewhat brighter bag in the fall and winter. These may not end up being the exact purses I purchase, but they’re my inspiration while I’m looking. 🙂
#4) The Ciate Caviar Manicure: This two-step manicure kit from Sephora comes in three colours (rainbow, mother of pearl, black pearls) It looks like a cool, and relatively inexpensive way to get fabulous looking nails at home. I’m thinking of trying out the black version first, then maybe the white. Still undecided on the rainbow (maybe if the black and white workout well) Basically the kit includes the nail polish in Ghetto fabulous (opaque black) and the Black Caviar Pearls.
#5) Peplum Skirts: Peplum is everywhere right, and since I already have a dress, and two tops with the peplum thing going on I think it’s time to add a skirt to the mix. As for colour I’ve decided to go with a classic black first, but I’m sure hot pink, or coral isn’t far behind.
#6) Cobalt Blouse: I just can’t remember who I saw wearing it, but whomever they were convinced me that blue was a good idea. I used to never wear blue, I don’t know why. However I have wanted a beautiful, flowy blue blouse for ages, and now would be the perfect opportunity to pick one up.
#7) Basic Tanks: A good thing to stock up on are tank tops. Basic colours, crazy colours, dark colours, light colours. You can never have enough. They come in really handy when your shirt cuts a little too low, or your shirt just so happens to be see-through. Tanks also make for some cute layering.
#8) Triangle Necklace: I’m not too sure what inspired my desire for a simple little triangle necklace, but I know this one from House of Harlow is super cute, and is my inspiration on my hunt to find the perfect necklace.
