Tying a bow on “The List”

November 17, 2009

Here we go!  This is going to be a long one my friends!  The fall season is wrapping up and it is time to wrap up my “List.”  I think I will be continuing this tradition most season to come!  It was fun, I liked this and my husband is now determined to do the same, I will post on that as well.  Now let’s get to it!

Below is my list of fall must-haves:

  • Boyfriend Blazer – Well I kind of ended up with a couple. I returned the first and kept the second two.

Express Blazer: $12.99 via Marshall’s; J Crew Triomphe Blazer $198

  • Black Motorcycle Boots or Ankle Cowboy Boots – I kind of already had these in Brown, so I just made them work.

Blowfish Boots-$?, had for a couple of years, save some $$$!

Floral Sneakers: U.O. $12

  • A digital or bracelet Watch (no I don’t own one, yes it drives my boss crazy)- On my Christmas List!  Therefore I CAN’T buy one.
  • Ankle length black Skinny Jeans– LOVE my Gap Jeans.

Gap Premium Denim “Always Skinny”-$69.50

  • High Tops (yeah I went there)– Also on my Christmas List
  • The Perfect Loafers (no link, they do not exist)- They don’t exist….
  • A Trench

Guess Trench via The Rack-$79

  • Pyramid Stud Studs– Yup, you guessed it, Christmas List!
  • Sleeveless Shells to wear with and under everything- I got a couple, one is pictured above (leopard B.F. Blazer) the other is below:

Aqua Shell- 365 Hangers, $35, Leopard Shell-Marshall’s $12.99

  • Vintage-looking Oversized Tees– I don’t have the best pics, but both of these are over-sized burn-outs.

Oversize Blue Tee- Nordstrom Junior’s $28, White Burnout Tee-Target $7

  • A lacey off-white Mini Shift– I quit this bitch, I chose this dress instead, and I LOVE it, I am saving it for the Holiday Season!

Parker Dress- ModCloth $72.99

In conclusion I didn’t get everything..yet, and I wasn’t great at sticking to “The List” but I did stay on budget.  I am in the works for creating a “Winter” list.

Do you have a list?

    The list is great! I totally agree about the lacey off white mini shift…yeah I quit looking for something like that a while ago. Not the best mama outfit.

      Hi Alexa,

      I have never had a blog on tumblr but It is my understanding that most bloggers use wordpress and blogspot. I do guest blogging on a site that uses blogspot and I prefer wordpress. I think wordpress has cleaner templates, but you can’t do google ads unless you use wordpress.org, but you can always upgrade. I hope that’s helpful!

      I also email wordpress support constantly for help and they are great. I also know some of the biggest bloggers use Tumblr so I guess to each there own. Don’t sweat it either way, it’s about your content!

      Good Luck!
      -Jade
