I've been trying. I really have. But sometimes, shopping just gets the best of me. I picked up the booties and blazer in NYC so I don't count that as too recent, but I've yet to wear them so I'm beyond excited to pull those out. September is still so hard. You see other people wearing jeans, vests, and scarves, but here in Carolina, the shorts and sandals are still everywhere. And is it just me, or does it not look a wee bit silly to see people wearing cable knit when it's still 80 degrees out?
I spotted the infmaous Zara scarf last year when in New York at Thanksgiving and failed to purchase it. So this year, when I saw they had this version available, I didn't wait. It came in yesterday and I am in love. I also snagged the camel cowl-neck sweater from Forever 21. Won't this be perfect with skinnies and boots or booties? I really felt like it looked so much more luxury than the Forever21 price tag that came with it. And then, of course, I spent way too much effort adding red into my fall wardrobe for the NC State football games, so when I saw this red peplum top, it immediately went in my hands.
There are still so many things that I have on my wishlist for fall. Something about this time of year just makes me want to buy everything in sight. But for now, I can't wait to put these to good use.
