fall wishlist

Fall is in full effect around these parts and before you know it, Christmas will be knocking on our door!  Here are a couple of my fun finds for Fall - maybe a few will make their way under my tree this year....???

As much as I love fun, bold jewelry, I tend to gravitate toward smaller, simple pieces for everyday wear.  I fell in love with this asymmetrical mini letter necklace - I want a "J" for my man and I'd wear it all the time!  It looks just as beautiful on its own or layered with other necklaces for an even more dramatic effect:

This camel Brooklyn foldover clutch is, perhaps, the perfect accessory for Fall.  I love the brass detailing and leather tassel:

I always ask for my design books for Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries - the hubby knows that when in doubt, buy books!  I absolutely LOVE The Great American House by Gil Schafer - I make a beeline for it whenever I'm at Barnes and Noble and immediately proceed to drool all over the pages:

And while we're on books, might as well add this one to the list!  Nate Berkus' latest, Things that Matter, was released last month to rave reviews.  I can't wait until it's gracing my own bookshelves!

You can never go wrong with a little Greek key and this new fabric by the yard by Premier Prints is killing it!  So many color options, perfect for throw pillows, trim on curtain panels or recovering an ottoman for a fun, fresh touch to your Fall decor.  Here are some of my favorite colorways:

            

            

 My burlap Toms are some of the most comfortable shoes-I wear them almost every day when working onsite, but I am really jonesin' for these gorgeous brown herringbone peep-toe wedges!  I can hear my trouser jeans calling their name....thanfully, it doesn't get too cold here in the South to wear open toed shoes!

OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark is my usual go-to nail polish for Fall, but Essie's Mink Muffs is taking a close second - the perfect taupe-y neutral for this time of year and, might I add, it goes pretty nicely with those peep-toed Tom's!

I love anything monogrammed and this set of three serving platters by Etsy seller inherwordsceramic is not only adorable, but a great conversation starter at your next dinner party!

What's on your wishlist this Fall? 

Happy Weekend!
