Fall Fling

Mrs. Dub has sent her readers on a Fall Fashion Scavenger hunt, so of course, I'm on that like white on rice! We're supposed to find a Fall shoe, a piece of outterwear, and a smashing accessory.

Here are my picks:

Chie Mihara shoes in violet/brown would look super cute with a swing or trapeze dress, tights, and some long necklaces. (Maybe throw in a chunky cocktail ring too! Oh-la-la!)

This super cute Gap jacket is fleece, which makes it both stylish and wicked comfortable. It's also a good bi-coastal jacket, which is hard to find. The style is all uptown East Coast, but the fleece will make you fit right in if you find yourself in the Pacific Northwest, as I sometimes do. (PS. I also really like the striped turtleneck you see peeking out there too. A sucker for turtlenecks, I am.)

Speaking of the Gap. Hello? have you been to the Gap lately? Yeah, me neither. But I went in today, and I just about had a heart attack at all of the CUTE CUTE CUTE things they had! I found a short sleeve turtleneck, an item I've been looking for for literally YEARS! I should have bought out their entire stock, given how hard they are to find. Well done, Gap. Looks like your efforts to get back on track are working. You're back in my Mall rotation, right between ALDO and Nine West.

I really like this little cocktail ring form Urban Outfitters. It'll sass any outfit up, for sure! Comes in 4 colors and is a very reasonable $16.00 (especially since UO is always really overpriced.)

If you decide to do this scavenger hunt too, let me know in the comments, I'd love to see your picks!

Gretchen, I enjoyed your comment! And I think you are hilarious! I am going to add you to my blog list.

By the way... you are living the life I always wanted to live if I were still single. 32, East Coast living, cheeseburgers, fries, and a diet coke. Trips to the mall to find a short sleeved turtleneck. We have so much in common... kind of.
