Everyday Life

New. #write31days

Sleep is running low this week (no that isn’t anything new), so I’m going to take the easy way out since my brain is too tired right now.

Next month (!!!!) I’m going to NYC and it has gotten me all kinds of excited but also all kinds of itching for new clothes/shoes/makeup/bags/YOU NAME IT.

Because out of everywhere I have been in my life, NYC is one of my very favorite places in the world and it deserves my best, ya know?

So I’ve been on the search for a few new things for fall and winter and NYC combined.

1- The perfect plaid shirt. I’ve literally been on this search for a month and haven’t found the right one yet.

I am loving this one From Target – can’t get over the patched elbows. This is the #1 contender. It comes in 3 different colors.

2- The perfect scarf. If I can’t ever find a plaid shirt that fits well and that I like, I’m going to try for a big plaid scarf. Otherwise I want maybe a leopard print and/or aztec print.

Here is a neutral aztec I’m really liking from Forever21.

I tried this leopard print scarf on at Torrid and it was hard to put down (didn’t have any $ at the time to get it).

And OH MY GOODNESS LOOK AT HOW PRECIOUS THIS BOW SCARF IS! *runs off to get it immediately*  (from Torrid)

I’ve had my eye on this scarf at Target for quite sometime.

3- The perfect tall boot.

Now. Girlfriend (meaning me) has some wide calves. I’ve ALWAYS had wide calves. Always. So I have to look for wide calf boots. And btw- MOST OF MY FRIENDS at ALLLLLLL sizes have wide calves too and have a hard time finding boots. Why don’t people get a clue and design for real people already?! Gah.

I bought these boots at Torrid and I loooooove them. Love. Looooove. They fit SO WELL.

I would love some black boots as well but they really aren’t in the budget.

4- A gold watch.

I love classic watches like this Michael Kors watch. I wonder if I can convince Andy I need it? Like NEED not want. HA.

5- Makeup. We all know I’m obsessed with makeup. Here are a few things I think I’m gonna need going into the fall/winter and for NYC.

Naked2 Basics – I didn’t think the first Naked Basics was for me but I’m loving the 2nd one. I have the Naked2 palette and have had it ALMOST TWO YEARS without running out. It is AMAZING. But I’m finally to the point where I’m needing a new palette and the basics are small and great for travel. I don’t need as many as the regular Naked’s so I’m thinking the basics would be the perfect fit.

I also feel a strong need for a new blush. I’m DYING to try this Ambient Lighting Blush by Hourglass (loving the Ethereal Glow). I’ve heard so many things about it and I need a color better for the cooler months.

I’m also looking for a great eyeliner- any recommendations welcome!



What are you looking for this fall? I’d love to know!
