I did alright last month, finding a pair of trousers and an obi belt...I'll be showing how I'm wearing these pieces soon! Since September turned out to be more of a Summer month than a transitioning period, many items on this month's wishlist are for transitional weather. Here's what's on my wishlist this month:
1. Printed Button-Downs
Button-down blouses make the perfect addition to any perfectly layered outfit. Recently I've been seeing a lot of button-down shirts layered under pullover sweaters and I just love it! I'd really love some prints like stripes, plaid, or polka dot to add a fun pop under a basic cable knit.

2. Leather Skirt
A leather skirt in a neutral color adds the perfect twist to any basic outfit. Not to mention it is perfectly 70s-inspired with tights and knee-high boots! I'd love one in a chocolate-y brown...

3. Animal "Print" Jumper
This is just too cute. As I mentioned above, I'd like button-downs to layer under sweaters...well, I'd like sweaters to layer over button-downs! I called this pullover a "jumper" which is what our fine friends in Europe call 'em and British stores like Topshop and Zara seem to have a lot of these...

and layered it over an animal-print button-down!
4. Tights and Socks
I'm not going to give up wearing skirts and shorts just because the weather gets cold. Just layer some tights and socks underneath and you're good to go! Tights look sleek with a skirt and boots, socks look great layered over tights and under boots, and, of course, there's the socks-in-sandals trend so that you don't have to say goodbye to your summery shoes either anymore!

5. Casual Blazer
Since I don't work in an office setting, I don't really need a fancy blazer. But a casual style in a neutral color is the perfect addition to any basic outfit. It dresses up your jeans and adds a cute touch to a dress. In fact, H&K Style Journey just did a fabulous guest post on the many different ways you can wear a blazer - check it out here!
