This fall is full of neutrals – except this time it’s not just black and tan but amazing blush tones and rich metallics that are making the cut. September is always a tough time for shopping; you’re not quite ready for fall yet because it’s technically still summer so clothes never seem THAT cute to you. I always think it’s a good thing because mental note what you want and once we are all in cold weather mode, buy it when it goes on sale! Oh and WHOOPSIES if you got this to your emails yesterday!

I’ve had a lot of gifts to buy lately and that always leads me to a monogram. I’ve had a lot of fun finding new and fun ways to add a touch of personalization and thought. My favorites as of late are below. Gift away!!

I sound like a broken record but every year around this time I struggle. It’s warm but not hot, it’s cold sometimes and then it’s not. Layers are obviously key. However, what to buy during this season is even tougher. You have weddings to go to, kids birthday parties to attend, beaches to visit (and beach bodies to work on)…I mean LIFE IS TOUGH. So when my lust lists are even more random than usual, let’s blame the April/May transition.

Once I do actually make my move to my new apartment, I have been leaning towards a new look. It’s been in the process this year (a few vases and trays here and there) but now that I’m moving to a place I’ll actually own I want it to look like an actual home. Not just a home but the perfect one for me to come home to and to entertain! Here are some things I’m thinking about…

Things that are hard for me these days include getting up early to go to the gym when it is snowing/icing like crazy AND creating lust lists when I am not shopping. Do you guys believe it? I’ve bought one blazer since Christmas and that is the only purchase I’ve made in 2015. Trying to stay strong!!! Meanwhile, my eyes are lusting over the below. Sigh.

I’ve been very good about not shopping this month (it’s going to last through March people so keep your fingers crossed) but that doesn’t stop me from looking.

My lust list this week is a bit confused because I am confused. Do I want winter cozy clothes? Fall day looks? Holiday sparkle? Fun accessories? I mean I just do NOT KNOW. I want everything apparently so please excuse the hodge podge. What I’m really lusting for is a replacement to my black wool winter coat (mine don’t fit so it’s a reasonable excuse) so stay tuned for options on that this week.
