November Wish List

Between losing an hour of daylight this weekend and witnessing the return of the Starbucks red cup, I feel like winter has practically arrived overnight! Not to mention it’s suddenly freezing, which means the time has come to bust out the cold weather apparel. The vibe? Cozy as hell with a hint of girly glamour. Hello ridiculously soft sweaters, slouchy knits, and furry scarves. Top off the look with some glitzy jewelry and metallic nail polish…and a skirt that fans out when you twirl. Those are the best.

I also have my eye on Diptyque’s newest candles, though I should probably sniff them in person before I commit. What’s on your wish list this month?

October Wish List

Welcome to October, the most confusing time of year to get dressed in Seattle! One day you’re dealing with a torrential downpour and gale force winds, and the next, it’s back to being 70 degrees and sunny and you wonder why you ever bothered to pull your boots out of storage. It doesn’t help that everything cute seems to be suede, a fabric destined for destruction if exposed to the elements. (Short of a full-on Bubble Boy getup, I can’t come up with a way to protect against this. Any ideas?) For now, I guess I’ve got to settle for light, cozy layers. Or just stop going outside, maybe.

I’m obsessed with that drapey waterfall coat! And my fingers are crossed that the plaid scarf goes on sale sometime soon. What’s on your wish list right now?

Loafer Love

loafer fall 2015 fashion julia malinowskiThis fall, I’ve been on a mission. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of both oxfords and loafers. I think I’ve found the ideal oxfords in the new TOMS brogues. Most oxfords are narrow in the back, mercilessly pinching one’s heels. These have a wider back and extra cushioning, making them the most comfortable “dress” shoe I’ve honestly ever worn. Also, they’re super cute. I actually bought my pair at the Nordstrom Fall Beauty Trend Event with Mil.
.
However, I have yet to find the perfect loafer. This year, I’ve seen a number of interesting updates to the standard penny loafer and am having a hard time deciding on the right choice. For me, the perfect shoe is wearable on an at least weekly basis, but it’s so basic that it completely blends with the outfit. It needs to bring some punch and purpose.

celineThe “tuxedo” loafer, aka black and white, has been everywhere! This Celine pair, spotted on Julie of Sincerely Jules, is priced beyond my wildest dreams. However, here a few more affordable options I’ve been eyeing:

On the other hand, I’ve also been loving the “smoking” loafer, a softer take on the more traditional shape. Lots of interesting colors and more of a blurring with a flat or a slipper.

gal-meets-glam-ripped-denim14This Stubbs and Wooton pair, spotted on Julia of Gal Meets Glam, is also out of my price range at $400+. Unfortunately my job at Porch.com has yet to pay me the big bucks. So goes working for a start-up… Naturally however, I hunted down a few more realistic options:

What are your thoughts? Black, white, and bold? Or something a little bit softer? I need your weigh-in, as I’m hopeless at making decisions on my own!

XOXO,
Jules

September Wish List

Aside from Christmas, there are few times of year that put me in the mood to shop like back to school season. Which is fortunate, because I desperately need something to pull me out of my end of summer funk. Bidding my sundresses farewell always fills me with a deep and profound sadness, but I’m excited to gradually phase some deeper colors, richer textures, and pieces with a little more structure into my wardrobe. All while keeping some pink in the mix, of course.

What about you? What’s on your must-have list this month?
