I’m aware I am probably going to get virtually egged here, but summer is not my favourite season. In fact, it may come in dead last on the season scale. I just don’t think I’m meant for warmer temps; puffy, sweaty skin, light, pas colours that I will undoubtedly spill something on, and work outfits that are appropriated the freezing-cold office temperatures but completely wrong as soon as you step outside are just a few reason why I obsessively count down the days leading up to autumn.
Being as we are in the home stretch of summer, I decided to create one of my favourite things: A shopping list, of my must-haves and current obsessions for fall 2017.
Sheer EVERYTHING – tops, bombers, dresses… my fixation on sheer clothing is getting a little over-the-top. Ive been on the hunt for a sheet white bomber FOREVER, so I was ecstatic when I found this one: Forever 21, $39.90 GET IT!
Clean Stripes – Seriously though, who doesn’t love a stripe? These wide-leg, striped pants would pair perfectly with a bodysuit, for a quick and easy look that could smoothly transition from the office, to a dinner date. ASOS.com, $49.99 GET IT!
Puffer Coats – Where I live, (Calgary, Canada), coats are an integral part of your outfit. There are so many styles I can’t wait to get my hands on this winter, and #1 on my list is this navy blue one from TopShop, $80 GET IT!
Fringe – I am currently lusting hard over anything with fringe, so when I saw this leather, fringe skirt from Shoptiques, I knew I needed to have it. How cute will it be with a plain T-shirt and some pumps? Shoptiques.com, $180 GET IT!
Fun Fur – If you know me, you know I will wear faux-fur anything, alllll winter long. The obvious choice is a fur vest, and the runways were full of them for the Fall/Winter 2017 season. One difference? The typical blacks, browns and tans were given a makeover, and fur apparel in all colours of the rainbow were everywhere. You probably don’t want to break the bank on a light pink, faux-fur vest, so I love this multicolored one from Forever 21, $40.99 GET IT!
Dark, Romantic Florals – Floral prints are not relegated just to summer anymore, and the super-extra girly-girl in me is tickled pink. I love this floral blazer from Zara, $49.90 GET IT!
