I've been sick this week, which is why I haven't been posting much lately. I thought I would compile my most current wishlist for these sick days.

The past few days of chilliness has got me thinking: I need something to keep me warm for the winter! I've been thinking about getting a fur trapper hat for a few years, but have always decided against it. I guess I wasn't sure I could pull it off. Keeping this blog has taught me many things, but above all, not to be afraid of things I haven't tried before. So I think it's time to get a big fur hat for the winter. Since I walk to work everyday, this will be perfect to keep my ears warm. And rabbit fur is just so fabulous!

I got these sneakers back in the spring and I got a lot of use out of them through the summer. After taking them back out a few weeks ago, I realized they might need a makeover. Take a look at what a simple move can do to make a big difference, after the jump.

I was very excited for this collaboration to launch and had my list of must-haves ready. After ten hours of waiting outside of H&M, I grabbed everything on my list and then some. Take a look at what I got.

I had a great time at Fossil last night picking some really great items for my Holiday wish list. They have a ton of awesome gifts to get some people crossed off your list! Take a look at some of the pictures I took and the video I made of my personal wish list.

This is the Denim jacket that I am currently studding as a DIY project. I was pretty excited about it, even in its un-studded state, so got some wear in before it went under the knife. I absolutely love it because its a great layering piece that won't make me too hot. Here, I layered it over a button-down shirt and a sweatshirt. With the sneakers and some leather bracelets, its a cool look for a casual day.

I've clicked through this show few times since it was put online because it is really one of my favorites for the coming spring season. The black, white, and denim look has always kind of stood out for me - and it is very Dsquared. It's interesting to see the variation too, from dressy to casual.

I chose the location for these photos because I love the water fountain in the middle of the road and the trees were making cool shadows on the houses, but when I got home to see the pictures I realized it may not have been a good choice. The pictures were much darker than I thought, so I used this fun App on my phone called Camera + to enhance the color.

Leather Weather is the time of year when its chilly enough to throw on a leather jacket but warm enough where your parka isn't quite necessary. I always make sure to fully enjoy this time of year because it doesn't last forever.

I went to H&M a few weeks ago to get some new fall-hued basics for the new season and I am thrilled that the cooler days are here so I can begin filtering them in. These burnt orange were only $30 and I spent $10 to have them hemmed - an affordable way to update my closet for the fall. I am also getting a lot of use out of this leather shirt-jacket I bought last spring. This is my favorite time of year because I think the population looks better covered up a little more... Layering does everyone a lot of good!

We shot this on the Upper East Side before the FNO fun started. I was excited to wear this new camouflage print shirt I got a few weeks back and I love the way it worked out. I am also loving my new Reed Krakoff cuff in alligator... it feels super luxurious! You should really check out the whole collection on his website [HERE]

I know my last post was also about shoes, but I had to share these boots with you all. Coach is doing another collaboration, this time with Frye, on a small collection of boots for men and women. Out of the two style for men, this is the one I really like for myself. Now I just need to get over to Coach to try them on! The leather was picked just for the project so I'm sure it will be a great choice for a fall boot.

Prada has another collection of stunning shoes starting to trickle in stores now. The first two are straight from the runway show... definitely attention grabbers. My favorites are the oxfords dipped in rubber because they are really unique but easy to wear - I've also seen a cool camo version too. I predict we will be seeing a lot of this shoe this fall. I also like the flowered pair, but I think the style is limiting. The two shoes on the bottom were not in the show, but deserve some attention. Those brown monk-straps are looking really good with some tassel detail. So very Prada and very cool.

Is fall here yet?! I am so ready for the heat to be replaced with cool breezy days so we can all start wearing layers again. That being said, I really need to start doing some fall shopping done to be ready when that weather decides to roll around. H&M has a lot of great sweaters this year - now I just need to find them in store. The striped sweater is definitely on my to-get list, and maybe a varsity jacket too since I didn't get my fix last fall. I am really loving navy, burgundy, and grey for this fall and it looks like H&M will have some good pieces to start with.

I recently bought this silk wrap bracelet from hermes.com. It was created to celebrate 10 years of their online shop, so I thought it was kind of fun. There were three colors to choose, and I thought I couldn't go wrong with classic orange. So far I've been wearing it with this silver watch, but it also looks great layered with a leather bracelet. This little thing is just the piece to hold me over until I get a CDC!

Diesel is all black and blue for spring! And while the looks as a whole are a little to rock and roll for my taste, there are definitely some stand-out peices. The suede biker jacket is killer with embroidered leather sleeves, and the leather bomber is cool too with a detailed body and plain sleeves. I wouldn't mind if either of those pieces made it into my closet! The black and blue brogues my just be one of my top favorite shoes for the spring shows so far, love the boot version too.

I've always said that clothes don't have to be expensive to look expensive - its all in the fit, and this shirt proves my point. This cotton button down has a thicker weight so it can be worn alone without being see-through. I didn't have this one tailored, but I do recommend you invest a few bucks in custom fitting your shirt because it really does make a wold of difference! With the white shirt and khaki shorts, I thought the high tops would be fun - they are definitely my current favorite sneakers. And as I am posting this, I realized that the fun teal zip envelope I was using didn't make it in any of the pictures. (sadface) Oh, and the sunglasses were an early Birthday gift from my sister. Yay!
Shorts: DIY Cut-off's
