Early Fall Wish List

Just a few things in my shopping cart at the moment. I'm sticking to the items I may actually pull the trigger on because, for content so seemingly fluffy, these posts take a very long time! Haha. Also, it's my birthday month, so...

Pintucked Lace Tunic, $98- I LOVE romantic tops with slouchy blue jeans and tailored outerwear/accessories.

Slim Boyfriend-fit Ankle Jeans, $30- Uniqlo (and Muji!) might be the two big chain stores I miss the most in NYC. Big in Japan.

Leather Bucket Bag, $145- A glossy navy crossbody bag in a clean silhouette.

Dover Italian Wool Blazer, $198- THIS COLOR. A blazer somewhere between camel and chocolate.


Gingham Flutter Wrap Dress, $158- Classic/Retro/Hitchcockian dress for fall.

Ariella Tapestry Boots, $40- I saw these in person the other day at Target and was seriously impressed by the quality to pricepoint ratio. Selling out very quickly.

Ribbed Boat Neck Half Sleeve T-Shirt, $10- Comes in lots of fall colors, 100% cotton and ribbed, long and slouchy, the price is right... I miss Uniqlo SO MUCH.

Relaxed Striped Chino Pants, $88- Definitely want a pair of chinos or jeans with a ribbon or piping down the side seam, just haven't settled on the exact pair.

Cream Elinor Loafers, $158- I destroyed a pair of white Chanel loafers in NYC (*sobs*), so I may have to find a replacement pair this season. Wore them almost every day.

Violette Dress, $225- Discovered this brand on Instagram and now I want all of their girly 90s style dresses.

Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Treatment, $16- Sampled this cult lip moisturizer the other day and was seriously impressed. No petrolatum and lips so soft for hours.

Classic Retro-X Fleece Jacket, $198- Need a lamb-esque jacket for fall.

APC Candle in Toumbac, $50- One of my earliest candle splurges (maybe 10 years ago?) and now I'm ready to revisit. Smells like cigars but much better.

Ultra High-Rise Cropped Wide-Legs, $40 (from $148)- Tried these on months ago and loved the fit, the thick cotton, the stitching, and the frayed hem. The reviews are immaculate. It's a bit late in the season but may have to go for it.

Scout Bags at Whimsicality

Scout Bags at Whimsicality

I was so excited when Georgetown-based Scout Bags reached out to me recently. They sent me a couple of pieces to test out and wanted me to share more about their brand.

I felt like it would be the perfect opportunity to feature a local shop, Whimsicality, run by mother and daughter duo Tricia and Christine Hylind. Whimsicality is one of four Scout destination shops in the country and is located in Cape St. Clair.
