Fall Essentials – My Wishlist

I always have a wishlist.  What is the purpose of this you ask?  Well, it helps me with budgeting mostly.  If I had tons of money I probably wouldn’t have a wish list…or maybe just one or two items would be on it.  But because I have a small clothing budget, I make these wishlists and watch until one (or more) of them go on sale.

But, not just any old sale will do for me lol!  I actually know what a good sale is at the stores that I shop most frequently at.  For example, at Ricki’s, a 15% off sale won’t even make me blink an eye because I know the item that I want will be reduced even further if I wait.  Of course, I risk the item selling out before I get the price that I want, but, that’s a risk I’m willing to take.

Amazon is different though, the items on my wish list from Amazon don’t usually go on sale…at least not like at other retail stores.  I have found some good sales on Amazon though so it does happen.

I also sign up for the email lists at my favorite stores so that when the sale I’m waiting for happens, I’m the first to know.  Then I jump online and grab what I want before it sells out!

So, I thought I’d share the items at the top of my wish list right now.  And they are mostly basic fall essentials.  I am still in the beginning stages of rebuilding my wardrobe to be more functional and versatile rather than just buying the standard black dress pants and some sort of colorful floral top which is what I wore pretty much every day until I decided I needed to learn more about style, trends and fashion 🙂




















Clockwise from the top

Olive Skinny Jeans – I have olive pants in a chino ankle length and love them.  I need this color in a warmer skinny jean style!

Olive Utility Jacket – Not sure why I don’t have one of these in my closet…it is a basic fall staple (and spring) and I really like this one from Gap.  If it goes on sale I’ll be scooping it up!

Leopard Print Pumps – I wear my leopard print flats a lot right now.  They are a neutral pattern so they go with everything plus they add some nice visual interest to an outfit.  I need this print in a pump for work and I love this pair!  Heel isn’t too high, the print is perfect (not too orangey and not too big or too small)!

Cognac Ankle Boots – LOVE cognac for fall!!  Also love ankle boots for fall!  So these need to get into my closet.  These will go great with skinny jeans or boyfriend jeans, with a dress or skirt…very versatile!

Gold Circle Pendant Necklace – goes with any outfit…need this.

Burgundy Skinny Jeans – Love me some burgundy for fall, need it in skinny jean form!

Plaid Blanket Scarf – I can’t believe I don’t have a plaid blanket scarf already!  This NEEDs to get into my closet for fall!!

Mustard Yellow Infinity Scarf – Mustard yellow adds a beautiful pop of color for a fall outfit!  Plus, this color will go with just about any color you want to wear with it!  And again, warmth!

Quilted Vest – This would complete some many outfits and add just the right amount of interest!  Plus of course, warmth in these cooler months!
