1. H&M embellished shoulder tunic top
I have strong (read: negative) feelings about H&M not being located here in the south and not having an online shopping site. Grrr. Couldn't find this online, but it's such a cute top/tunic. I plan on wearing it as both-- with a chunky cardigan/cape that I purchased a few years back, with jeans or leggings. It looks great belted (because of it's extreme over-sized body) and is super cute set off the shoulder. (Got an XS)
2. Patterson J. Kincaid Harlow blouse
3. F21 shoulder padded top
4. Urban Outfitter's Puff Sleeve blazer
This doesn't seem to be in grey online, but that's the color I purchased (plus, as it is with UO, god love 'em, this is much cuter in person). I loved this the minute I put it on-- it's got a nice weight to it and fits beautifully (in a size up). The only issue I might have is the material-- it's a cotton/linen blend that seems to get wrinkly quick. Oh well, I don't mind steaming! (Got a S-- XS was a little too tight)
5. Anthro's Perilla Dress
So, I definitely veered from my pact to stop buying summer and made an exception with this. But the reason is sound-- it is so comfortable and will be wearable in Dallas through October. $59 for something I might just wear the next three months straight is fair to me. :) Seriously, it's perfect for work or the weekend (I'm wearing it today and wore it to a baby shower on Saturday!), plus the jersey material is the softest damn thing I've felt in a long time. It's totally adorable, too. (Got an XS, and prolly coulda used an XXS if they had one!) I'll post an OOTD with it tomorrow. :)
6. Anthro's Windstorm Necklace
Hubs bought this for me as a "going back to school gift" when it went on sale. I remember loving this when I saw it in the store modeled with a simple blouse, but $52? That was way too much for what it is. At $30, I feel much better about the price and know the jewel tones will work with a whole slew of stuff!
The ongoing theme? Neutral, neutral, neutral. Basics, basics, basics. To pair with all those other wacky items I own. How do you plan to style your fall?
