October 1, 2014

Good morning Y’all! I am doing something a little different for today’s Wednesday Wants. As October 1st has always seemed like the true start of fall to me, today I have selected what I think are the “fall essential” trends.. and given you a number of options under each of the trends! I have scoured the internet for the best of the best (and the best deals!) for each of the trends, so hopefully I have made it easier for you to jump right on in to fall trends. Without further delay:  

Fall Essential 1: Plaid / Tartan Scarves


1. Ebay $12.99

2. Ebay $9.99

3. Joe Fresh $14

4. Zara $29.90 (almost sold out (again!))

5. Nasty Gal $44.69

Plaid scarves seem to be the obsession of the fashion world this fall. I personally adore the first one, and have purchased the Joe Fresh one as well. Plaid in fall is essentially a neutral and you can wear it with anything. I plan on wearing the first one with lots of winter white and navy and the Joe Fresh one with mustard. A huge fashion win this fall has been mixing plaid with leopard or checked, so get your print mixing on! đŸ˜€

Fall Essential 2: Leopard Print Shoes

1. Sole Society $69.95

2. Tory Burch $250.00

3. Ivanka Trump $128.85

4. BCBG $69.95

5. Nine West $69.95

6. Minnetonka $65.95

Leopard print is often popular in the fall, but this fall it is especially popular as a footwear trend. Whether you are interested in reasonable height work heels, party heels, flats or even moccasins, I got ya covered for this trend. 

Fall Essential 3: Puffer Vests

1. Old Navy $34.94

2. J.Crew Factory $114

3. J.Crew Factory $124

4. Target $39.99

5. Shoptiques Online Boutique $117

I may have a puffer vest obsession. I love them and there are so many fantastic options! I love the rich wine colour of the old navy one, the J.Crew Factory ones are classics that the fashion world loves and look fantastic paired with plaid, the Target one is a beautiful plaid and I love the warm faux fur trim (and it’s wicked price!) and finally, the one from Shoptiques… this. is. a. peplum. vest. Are you kidding me?! I loved the peplum look this summer and love how flattering it is on a vest in the fall (vests can make you look boxy, but this vest fixes that problem entirely!) I cannot wait to get this peplum vest! 

Fall Essential 4: Faux Fur Vests

 1. Chic Wish $42.42 (almost sold out, get on this deal!)

2. DKNY $295

3. Jack by BB Dakota $62

4, Choies $49.99

5. Sirens $39 (not online- check your local sirens)

YOU GUYS. I am in LOVE with the faux fur vest from sirens. I have been looking EVERYWHERE for a faux fur vest for fall, but found every one I tried on to be entirely unflattering (adding way too much bulk, having no shape).. until this bad boy. Seriously, this vest is thin enough to not add bulk and is the right length to remove any boxy look. I cannot speak highly enough of this vest (and the price!) so get your butts to a sirens and get one! 

The other faux fur vests here are all great options. I particularly like the Jack by BB Dakota one

Well, that is all for my Wednesday Wants: Fall Essentials Edition. I hope you enjoyed it! Today is a HUGE day for me.. I am officially moving across the country back to Vancouver, BC. I am excited and terrified and cannot wait to get into my new apartment! I will definitely be posting apartment decor pics on instagram, so be sure to follow me!
