Fall 2020 wish lists

Fall 2020 handbag wish list from top left: Small shoulder bag / semi-circle shoulder bag / grey soft satchel / black puffy woven bag /

Can you believe fall is in roughly one month?! I cannot wait! It has been over 90 degrees here in the San Francisco Bay Area along with massive wildfires. Our air has been humid, smoky, and very hot. The cooler fall season cannot come soon enough!

This fall season I plan to keep my clothing simple and classic. To compliment this timeless vibe, I am wishing for a few fabulous handbags to spice up my looks. These four handbags would do just that; while reflecting current trends. Love!

I love my puff clutch, and this mini version with a strap; it’s a great alternative to the clutch. It fits right into the puffy clutch trend, yet offers a convenient strap. Love a strap!

How cool is this semi-circle handbag?! It is handmade in Italy, and so unique. I love the classic hue and eye catching design. This is a bag collectors must-have. I plan to place my order soon!

You know I love Antigona! I have my eye on this pretty grey soft version which just came out this season. I cannot decide between the medium and small sizes, so I am waiting until a size speaks to me. Which do you prefer?

Lastly, this puffy, woven shoulder bag is a current IT bag on the streets. I love it and feel like I need it in my life. It comes in several colors, but classic black speaks to me. What do you think?

 

Fall 2020 shoes wish list from top left: grey stamped croc loafers / classic black loafers / black tie up combat boots / square toe stamp croc pumps /

I have a good stock of booties from last fall, and the fall before. This fall season I feel like I need to up my classic loafer game, add a pair of trendy combat boots, and refresh my black pumps. After all, the square toe is back with a vengeance! It’s a must-have in everyone’s shoe wardrobe.

In addition to the square toe, stamped croc is hotter than hot this season. This pair of classic, stamped croc loafers is something I know I need in my life this fall. These pretty loafers come in too many colors to count. I am leaning towards the grey stamped croc. Which color is your favorite?

The black loafers pictured above are a closet staple, and they are timeless! I hope to add them to my closet this fall season. They are definitely an investment purchase I know I will enjoy for many years.

These combat boots remind me of high school when the lug sole was king. They have a fun ’90’s vibe, and they also look like they will be easy to walk in; and this season I need walkable shoes. What do you think of the combat boot trend? Are you jumping on the trend?

 

Fall 2020 home wish list from top left: foot rest-so perfect for underneath a desk! / hot/cool air purifier-must-have with all these wildfires in California! / area rug-this one is machine washable-love that! / chic umbrella-OK not really a home item but this one is super cool /

Well, three of the four items on my home wish list are actually home items. I included this umbrella because it’s fabulous and I feel like I need it in my life. Check out how the interior contrasts the exterior! Love that!

Also, I have three kids and hardwood floors. We have wanted to add a few rugs to our home for quite some time, and this one is neutral and washable. Yes, you read that right! You can throw this rug in the washing machine. I am not sure it would fit inside mine, but I will try! haha

With all these wildfires, I am more conscious of air pollution inside the home. My mom owns this hot/cool air purifier and she swears by it, so I feel like I need one too. When the fires are going, we can smell them inside the house, even with the windows shut. So, this seems like something we could use to help decrease the pollution inside our home from the smoke.

Lastly, I find myself constantly looking for a place to prop up my feet while I work. This foot rest is practical, and looks like it will offer me the comfort I need while I work from home.

What are you wishing for this fall season? Are you thinking about fall yet?

Thanks for stopping by!

Fall 2018 handbag wish list

fall 2018 it bags

from top left: brown shoulder bag / black box bag / brown puzzle tote / black mini tote (under $300) / pink tote bag / blue shoulder bag /

Although the fall 2018 season isn’t quite here yet, it has hit stores with a vengeance. Since I couldn’t possibly walk around in a cozy fall sweater just yet, I could walk around with a new fall 2018 it bag on my arm!

Handbags, aside from nail polish, are the easiest way to feel like you have a head start on fall. Although makeup can also be worn now, the fall 2018 beauty looks are little too dark for our warm summer temperatures; and they look funny with shorts. Whereas nail polish and handbags always seem to be able to transcend seasons, and easily shift us from hot to cool weather with ease. Perhaps that is why I love handbags and nail polish so much!

For the fall 2018 season, we are still seeing circles, geometric shapes, and ties on our bags. In addition, we will begin to see more fringe as the season heads towards winter. When shopping for a fall 2018 handbag, we need to watch for these silhouette trends, as well as look for hues which are easy to wear on a daily basis. Perhaps that is why I am drawn to black and brown bags this year. As shapes become more prominent in the handbag world, I feel the need to counterbalance them with neutral hues.

My fall 2018 handbag wish list is quite long. Unless I win the lottery, I won’t be investing in everything I want. For fall, I plan to pick up a new shoulder bag, and a new tote. The question is, which ones will I choose?

Current wish list

Happy National Splurge Day! Well hopefully you have some extra cash burning a hole in your wallet-because today is the day to splurge on that special somethin’ somethin’ you have been eyeing for awhile, but haven’t pulled the trigger on.

I have been eyeing soooooo many pretty things! Of course, I can’t splurge on everything; I need to have money left in the bank for silly things like, well you know, food. haha That being said, I plan to pick one thing from this post to splurge on. Right now I am debating if I need these boots or this bag more. What do you think?

All the things I wish I could splurge on:

What do plan to splurge on today?

Thanks for stopping by and happy national splurge day!
