We’ve been getting small doses of fall weather up here in Minnesota, and I’ve actually been embracing it pretty hardcore. On the first day that cool temperatures came through, I made my favorite butternut squash risotto recipe and savored every bite. And now I’m all about sweaters, fall colors, and everything in between. I have my eye on two brands right now who are doing this season right : Cuyana ( new lookbook here!! ) and The Citizenry. Both of them exude all of the beautiful warm colors we all associate with the fall, so naturally, I want to buy everything. And I mean everything. Also included above are a few other fun things that you can shop through below :
SO! It’s officially summer and getting hot here in good old MN. I approve. ;) That said, I’ve pulled a few items on my wishlist ( literally, some of these are on our wedding registry ) that fit the bill. This cotton v-neck tshirt from J.Crew has quickly become a staple in my closet. Seriously. I have it in grey, but am basically looking to buy ALL of the colors. Because really … when you find a good tee that fits you just right, you gotta capitalize on that. PLUS, they are 30% off right now. The other thing I’m thinking about purchasing ASAP is another pair of Saltwater Sandals. I got some last summer for our trip to Europe, and literally walked 100+ miles in these guys without my feet hurting once. They’re affordable, too! Feel free to shop around these pieces below :
Last weekend, while shopping with my mom, I found myself grabbing three colors consistently : white, black, and various shades of neutrals. My mom kept pointing out other colors that would “look good on me,” but my plain jane self stood firm in her comfort zone. I’m not sure when all of this happened, but my style preference nowadays is a far cry from the fun + bright dresses I used to wear just a few years back. So as I was putting together today’s wantlist, I landed on white. Good old white. With summer on the way and a chaotic schedule piling up, perhaps this is my way of seeking simplicity? The more I think about it … that may just be the case. Happy weekend to you all! Relax + enjoy.
PS. My good friend Cassie of The Veda House is off getting MARRIED this weekend!! So while she’s away celebrating, I am guest posting on her blog today with another wantlist for her notables column. So basically, you get two in one. ;) Feel free to head on over and see what goods I’ve picked out for the home.
