Freakin' Friday

Heyo.  It's Friday. I don't have anything witty to say because this was the dumbest week in existence.  I'm just glad its the weekend and there are cocktails waiting for me.

What am I doing on this Friday, September the 14th (Happy Birthday Dad!) at 1:20 pm you may ask? Well, I'm staring out my window into this 80 degree day, wondering why it isn't Fall. I'm simultaneously getting mad at myself for wishing away summer.  Someone slap me in January when it's -10 degrees and I have to put on a parka and snow boots to walk outside.

However, because I can't dress for the season in my mind...I'll share my fashion wish list for this Fall...whenever she comes.

Ostlie black flats from Aldo.  They're a moderate smoking slipper and moderately priced...and black. Get in my closet please.

Tahari Clementine Suede Flats in Burgundy from DSW.  Oxblood/burgundy/maroon is one of the "it" colors for this Fall.  I don't necessarily care about that but I've always loved jewel tones and I'm definitely a sucker for this style shoe right now, so here she is.

Sole Society Camila Flat in Leopard from Nordstrom. Last one I promise.  But it's leopard. Come onnnnn.

Mossimo burgundy jeans from Target. Right color. Right style. Right price.

Milk Stud shirt in white from Tobi.
I love a good button down. They are one of my favorite pieces for Fall year in and year out.
And let's face it...menswear-inspired pieces are making a huge comeback.
There's a gorgeous studded collar.
Note the cutout (that doesnt involve the midriff - thank you!)

Leopard print blouse (button down preferably...hello predictable girl).
I swear I've never been into animal print before. But apparently I'm having a moment.
So, if someone could track down this pretty gal's blouse that would be fab. It's all over Pinterest with no source. Uh. #firstworldproblems

Everly Sea Island Shimmer dress in taupe from Red Dress Boutique.
Chevron...imagine that.
Also - shimmer, sleeves, shift style.
That'll do ;)

Red Dress Boutique
Cowboygirl boots. If I found a way to put these Ariats on my feet, Lord knows I would. I like their simplicity more than anything. But frankly I'm just hoping to find a sale on a decent leather pair that hits my calf at a flattering height. Is that too much to ask? Probably...

Dot Cross Gold bracelet from Derng. 
Because I'm attempting to have a wrist stack up to my elbow. 
Because I love crosses.
And because sometimes sideways is better!
Here's hoping that at least a few of these items make their way to my closet! What's on your wish list this Fall? Is anyone else silly enough to wish away the 80 degree temps in exchange for fashion?

Playing Catch Up

So guys...I was working (aka slangin' boots & champs) on the Dubarry booth at the Hampton Classic in NY from Aug 23rd to Sept 3rd so I left the blogosphere for a minuto.  Here's what we were up to....

It was busy.  It was fun.  It was tiring.  But all in all it was a great 2 weeks for Dubarry and our team.  And BONUS - we had some great celeb spotting including Bradley Cooper, Julianne Moore, Kelly Ripa, Kelly Reilly, Ramona Singer from Real Housewives of NY, and Jill Zarin also from RHONY :)

Now its back to life, back to reality (remember that song?) And that means getting my Brand Ambassadors excited for this semester AND more personally...obsessing over Fall fashion, football, and the last few days in the sunshine (and the pool). guys...what is the 411?  What has everybody been up to? What is the hottest gossip?
