friday's fancies #43.

Welcome to my favorite season of the year: fall! {and a very happy Friday, of course!} In honor of this change in seasons, I thought it was only appropriate to set our sights on autumn for this week's Friday's Fancies. The cozy side of fall is probably one of my favorite features of this season...I love the smell of the crisp air which also requires protection from a cuddly sweater. Take a peek below to see how I'd stay chic and cozy if I had an endless budget...


1) I've always loved the idea of sweater dresses, but I rarely find ones that I want as desperately as I want this sweet and simple LNA Sweater Dress. I like that the thin belt would give me some shape and I can't get enough of the gorgeous draping!
2) Come to Mama! I adore the structured pieces coming out for this fall and this J.Crew Edie Tote works perfectly into that trend. It's a great size for a day of autumnal exploration ;) and that color? SWOON!
3) Since this is a cozy outfit, I didn't want to overpower it with lots of bling. This bluma project Paper Bead Necklace did the trick. It adds color without being overbearing--and it helps women in Africa create a sustainable lifestyle.
4) Every fall, I find one pair of boots I would love to find a place for in my closet. This season, these Frye Shirley Multi Strap Harness Boots are the winner. In my opinion, they are perfect in every way. Maybe one day...
5) I think a great jean jacket is a fabulous addition to any wardrobe. Though it may not be the most fashion forward piece, this Notify Coquelicot Stretch-Denim Jacket certainly serves its purpose and makes me think of autumns past...and smile.

What is at the top of your fall wish list?

  1. Cute sweaterdress. And I love the boots. Judging from my last two Friday's Fancies, I'm feeling the boots hardcore this year too... maybe it'll be a splurge item for me this year?

  13. I love those boots! I just wish they had a zipper. My calves hardly ever fit into the pull-on kinds of boots. It's so sad when I find a pair of boots I love and then they don't fit over my massive legs haha.
