fall festivities

so it's not quite fall yet in palo alto - it's still 80 degrees and sunny, with no fall foliage to be seen. regardless, i've been thinking about fun fall looks that i would love to start piecing together.

i've made a smorgasbord for the occasion:

neon colors were my favorite thing for summer, but now that it's fall and the tans have faded, i'm looking towards bold and bright options that are a little more seasonally appropriate. circling around, we have some beautiful deco bangles from j.crew that might be an option once they go on sale, but would add a great contrasting color to an outfit. next we have a knit cream colored circle scarf from h&m...i love circle scarves, especially ones that are warm, but a little lighter. and this cream color is kind of dreamy. the gold accent necklace is also from h&m, which i like because it matches the hardware on the shoes. 

next, we have sinful colors nail polish in big daddy - tangerine is my favorite color for fall, and i got this nail polish about a month ago to test out how much i actually like tangerine before investing in tangerine colored clothing. turns out i love it. 

these pants, from the gap, combine two of my favorite denim styles: skinnies, and a little bit of flare. i don't go for boot cuts because they don't flatter my figure, but i really like how clean and elongating these pants are. i also like these cole haan loafers - i'm not usually into brown, but they look really nice with this color palette. plus they have some sort of nike air situation going on, so they're meant to be really comfortable. and they're on sale.

and lastly, the blazer of my dreams, from jcrew. the color is fabulous, and i love the thin collar that you could pop without looking like a tool. the asymmetrical pockets are awesome too.

so that's the fall look i aspire to achieve, once the weather turns more chilly and my pocketbook turns less empty. what fall looks are you excited to sport in the coming months?
