I'll be honest with you: I didn't do too well with last month's wishlist. I was able to find some fun tops and I have a shirt dress in my "hold bin" at work but the sweet retro styles of the 50s and 60s are forever in my mind...in addition to nude shoes, be they wedges or heels, which I consider a must-have for every woman's wardrobe.
This wishlist reflects my desire for cooler temperatures and more layering:
As I mentioned in my last post, I need come color in my life. Fall is a great time for darker colors and neutral combinations but that doesn't mean no color. This wish can be broken down even further into 3 categories:
- Bright colored skirt (hopefully cobalt blue, but purple would work nicely too)
- Bright tanks, tops, blouses
- Bright cardigans (for layering and color-block happiness)

2. Pussy Bow Blouse
I love blouses for fall. They look perfect tucked into skirts and fabulous with my 70s style bell bottoms that are just dying to be brought back out. The pussy bow, which basically just means elongated, is universally flattering as it vertically lengthens your silhouette.

3. Polka Dots
Not only are polka dots on style.com's Fall Trend Report, but I have none in my wardrobe! Polka dots give a fun, flirty, and youthful vibe to an outfit and are perfect for print mixing.

Gorgeous, right? Bold metals are a trend drawn out on fashionising.com and I love the simplistic, minimalistic appeal as well as the glamour that comes with bold metals...be it silver, gold, or (my personal favorite) rose gold. And they match everything!

5. Lace-up Ankle Boots
The perfect transition footwear! Ankle boots are cute with shorts, skirts, and dresses as they anchor down the look and keep your feet warm as the weather gets cooler. These have been on my list for a while now...here's to finding a pair this time around!

Let's hope I can find all (or at least most) of these pieces this month! Stay tuned to see what I'm able to cross off, and how I'm wearing the pieces I got last month!
What's on your wish list? And are you patiently awaiting Fall or savoring Summer?
