planning ahead

it may technically be "fall" but we've still got a few warm days left. nevertheless, i'm already accumulating a long list of must-have fall pieces that i can't wait to wear! between gleamy new jewelry and super-soft sweaters and scarves, there's a lot in store for us this season. trust me.

1. this monogram necklace is at the top of my list. the epitome of wear-with-anything chic.
2. i may have a huge collection of bracelets, but none are as bold and slick as this hot pink j.crew bangle.
3. this multi-chain cuff will be a fabulous replacement for my current warn-to-death {and tarnished} chain bracelet.
4. and as i always say.... some leopard never hurts. i have almost every form of clothing & accessories in leopard print (i.e. scarves, skirts, sweaters, shoes, hair clips...) but no leopard bracelets. which means these dannijo beauties are a major necessity.
5. everyone tends to wear more neutrals in the winter, but this season is emphasizing jewel tones. an easy way to add that rich pop of color to your wardrobe is what a cozy scarf, like this orange one from h&m.
6. neutral cable knits have long been a favorite of mine, and this season they look better than ever -- worn few sizes up with some slim jeans and tough boots.
7. fur is having a moment this fall, but i just can't do a full-on coat. this faux-fur stole is just as luxurious, and looks a little more youthful - especially worn with something unexpected, like a black leather jacket. 
8. you know i'm digging plaid this season, and this blazer is still one of my favorite pieces yet. it looks all at once boarding-school polished and a bit rebel-chic. 
9. just like fur and plaid, leather (or pleather, in my personal opinion) is attracting a lot of attention this fall - and it's not just for boots and jackets.  touches of leather elevates any piece, and i especially love this pleather skirt from f21. the twirly, ballerina-esque shape makes it pretty and chic, not overly tough and trashy.
10. i've been after these dr. martens since finding them in london this summer, and i now believe they're the perfect fall shoe. i'm anticipating seeing a lot of these marching around with tights, baggy sweaters and chic layers.
