Fall Wishlist + Hello Monday Linkup

Happy Labor Day!! The weather is finally cooling off a little, and it has me vying for Fall layers and rich colors.   I don't like to shop too far ahead, but there are a few items on my wishlist that I'm eyeing already...

I've also recently scooped up a couple goodies that blew my 'budget' this month (I say 'budget' but I don't have a set figure, just a ballpark range and I know when I've over shopped...)

This suede jacket was something of an impulse buy, but the leather jacket I acquired last year was a major wardrobe staple, and I couldn't pass up the gorgeous shade of olive.  It also comes in a wine color or deeper green.  The style is selling super fast everywhere- so if you're interested, now's the time to buy; the charcoal gray and coffee color are already sold out!

The orange dress was an add-on clearance find at ASOS.  For $18 and free shipping and returns, I figured it was worth a shot.  I also got the olive t-shirt dress at ASOS, which is an item I've been searching for awhile.  I'm picky with my t-shirt dresses- I hate 3/4 sleeves- so with Fall approaching, I demand long sleeves.  I actually narrowly preferred this silhouette, but the olive color wasn't available.

I also redeemed some Old Navy rewards for the cute criss-cross front sweatshirt I've been eyeing at Athleta forever...

Speaking of forever, I've been coveting the stunning Kendra Scott 'Kaplan' statement necklace since it came out, and when I saw it for nearly $200 off and free shipping and returns, I had to at least order it and try it on with a bunch of outfits.  If it's as versatile as I hope, it will be a keeper, and I will feel insanely glamorous  every time I wear it.

Despite my above average amount of shopping the past couple weeks, there are still a few items left on my wishlist...

Olive camera crossbody | How adorable and versatile is this bag?!  A crossbody that holds a camera is hard to come by, and the price point is pretty stellar.  I'm also lovinggg the new Rebecca Minkoff Florence saddlebag- it's quite similar to the Gucci saddlebag I've been drooling over, but at a much more attainable price.  

Edgy black booties | I've been eyeing this particular style since last season, but they sold out super quickly!  They're back again, and I'm seriously considering saving up some Shopbop credits to get them.  I just wish the hardware was gold!  My dream bootie is the Chloe Susanna, but I'm pretty sure there are 1857320 more useful other things I could do with that much money.  Ha!  

Classic black loafers | The perfect loafers are another item I've been vying for a few seasons now.  These are quite the splurge, but they would last for seasons to come.  I'm thinking they may be a gift to myself upon my next promotion or raise... Alternatively there are a few really great dupes out there too, like these 40% off and under $100, or these.

New Kendra Scott pieces | There are a few (more) goodies I have my eye on at Kendra Scott currently- namely the red jasper collection *swoon*, particularly the Kimmy pendant.  After wearing the banded agate 'Rayne' nonstop, I also want the matching Brinkley bangle.  I will definitely be using my birthday 50% off discount on one of the two, I just haven't decided which.  My husband's birthday is the following month, maybe he can get me something for his month too ;)

Olive d'orsay flats | Evidently black and olive are my colors this Fall... really though I've been hunting for a pair of emerald green flats since mine were stolen years ago, but olive seems a good compromise.  I particularly love the cut of these, and have a pair of leopard d'orsay by Madewell also that I absolutely adore.

Wine leggings | I still haven't decided on an exact style- I'm not sure if I want moto detailing or not.  If Zella would just make a wine live-in legging, the decision would be made for me, but for now I'm still actively shopping the selection.  Encountered any great wine colored leggings lately?

Dark wash destructed denim | So this exact style is on sale right now and is getting rave reviews, but frankly I'm not thrilled about my current jean size and don't want to invest in a pricey pair until I shape up a little.  Ugh the dilemma.  We finally found somewhere to move, and I'll be way closer to work, so hypothetically I can spend that time working out, right? :)  Maybe later in the fall a new pair of designer jeans can be my reward when I achieve my goal.  

Phew!  That was some serious shopping chit-chat.  Thanks for hanging in there, and I'd love to hear what makes up your Fall wishlist!
And since it's Monday that means Linkup Day! (yes, totally a proper noun)
