Fashion Fix {Fall Wardrobe Wish-list}

When my weather app starts teasing me with cooler temps in the fall and warmer temps in the spring, I go into full blown closet organization mode.  I usually focus most of my energy on my three kids' closets, leaving not much time or money for myself.  Over the past few years though, I have really made an effort to stay up with current fashion trends, add a few key pieces to my wardrobe each season, and make the effort to actually get dressed and be presentable...most days.  I've found my mood is instantly raised when I am wearing a cute outfit instead of my workout clothes.  And, I've learned my go-to mom uniform can still be casual and comfortable while looking cute and put together.

Last week I was on Pinterest looking for some fun fall outfit options when I got a little carried away with my pinning.  I found so many great looks that I want to try to recreate, but a few of those will require a few new pieces.  The good news is, I have a birthday next month and my mom has already asked my family for our Christmas wish-lists, so I'm hoping to get a few of these as gifts.

On my wish-list: 

Gold Watch 
Statement Necklace 
Toms 
Uggs
Booties 
Military Jacket 
Plaid Shirt 


*Big Chunky Gold Watch*
I really, really, really want a Michael Kors watch for Christmas this year.  I have a nice silver watch that my hubby gave me when our oldest was born and I have worn it pretty much every single day for the past 7 1/2 years. I love it, but I wear a lot of gold jewelry now so I'd love a big, chunky gold watch to wear some days, too.  


*Statement Necklace*
The other jewelry piece on my wish-list is a statement necklace.  Until Jen found THESE last week I wasn't convinced I needed one, but now after seeing all of the awesome outfits I pinned that include a statement necklace, I know that I most definitely need one.  I love how it adds just a little bit of sparkle to an otherwise casual outfit.  The good news is, with that $10 price-point at Wal-Mart, one of these might make it's way in my cart the next time I'm there. 




Toms:
Last year for my birthday my mom gave me a pair of Camo Toms and as soon as I put them on I couldn't believe that they were my first pair.  Where had they been all my life?!?!?  They were so comfy and so cute.  I love wearing mine in the fall with jeans and I'd love to have another neutral pair in maybe leopard, navy, or cream.


Uggs:
I have one pair of Uggs that I have had for 7 years. Another pair I've had for about 4-5 years.  I wear them very regularly in the winter.  I doubt I will get another pair this season just because they are so pricey, but I have been eyeing these cute ones with the bows for a few years now and they might just might go onto my Christmas list.  I love that they are girly and preppy and I know they would make me feel like I'm walking on clouds.




Booties/Ankle Boots:
I feel like I am ready to finally jump on the bandwagon with the trend of ankle boots (aka Booties).  I really like riding boots and wear those a lot, but I think a pair of booties to wear with cuffed skinny jeans would look super cute and super trendy. The verdict is still out on what type I want, but I am liking the suede look of these two:




And how fun are these with the glitter for adding a little sparkle to your outfit?!?! Maybe not practical for casual everyday wear, but for a night out, these would be so fun.




*Military Jacket*
A few years ago when these jackets came into style I surprised myself by already having one in my closet from literally YEARS ago.  I wore it a few times, but because it was so old it was a little out of date.  It's more of a cropped jacket, just coming to my waist, so I am on the hunt to find one that is longer and I really like the ones that are cinched at the waist and kind of fitted.  I've struck out so far, so if anyone has any suggestions, please leave me a comment to let me know where to find it! 

Statement necklace + Military Jacket = Adorable! 

This outfit is really casual, but really cute.  Perfect for my life as a busy mom! 


*Plaid Shirt*
The last item I'd love to add is a plaid shirt.  I think they are so cute and preppy and can be worn so many different ways.  They look great under sweaters or cardigans, under puffer vests (which I happen to have a LOVE for) and even alone with jeans. 

I love this one peeking out from under a basic sweater and you can't miss that gold watch! 

Plaid shirt + Puffer Vest + Big Gold Watch + Monogram = Preppy Perfection...I'm dying! 

Um, hello navy gingham shirt, nautical sweater and puffer vest...I love you! 

And this girls has it all...booties, plaid shirt, big watch and a statement necklace! 

That's it for my fall fashion wish-list, but I'd love to know what is on yours or if I'm missing something that I really should be wishing for!  Leave us a comment and let me know.  Also, don't forget to enter our giveaway for a chance to win this gorgeous statement necklace HERE.
