No surprises here – lunch is leftovers!
More of that oat groat salad with zucchini, tomatoes and chickpeas.
Plus the last of my roasted broccoli and cauliflower from the other night.
Not super exciting, but tasty!
Fall, for some reason, is the time of the year that I get most excited about fashion.
I’m not sure why – maybe all the colors, the thick sweaters, fabulous coats and scarves…it just makes me want to bundle up and look good doing it!
Plus, there is nothing I like better than wearing a pair of dark jeans and a huge sweater that just takes me over. I’m pretty sure Nick does not enjoy my “grandpa” sweaters, and I have gotten rid of a few over the years because they are not flattering at all, but I still love them! I love that feeling of just being completely engulfed in a sweater – so warm and cozy.
Since I can’t stop thinking about that dress I saw yesterday, I thought I’d do a little “fantasy shopping” with all the things I would love to buy for fall right now if I had the cash.
I also found a list of the 7 trends for Fall over at Banana Republic – interestingly enough, most of my picks fall into their categories!
Interesting to me because I normally don’t follow trends. I am a jean / tshirt girl any day that I can be, have never ever owned Uggs and don’t go shopping for the new “thing” very much at all.
Ann Taylor Loft started me on this yesterday, so I’ll start there.
Plaid dress that I’m loving – it has POCKETS!!! I am such a sucker for dresses with pockets.
This navy coat is beautiful – too bad I have quite the coat collection and do NOT need another one…but I don’t have a navy one. Everyone needs a navy coat, right?
This outfit makes me happy – it would be better if it was in my colors but I love the jeans + jacket + scarf combo.
Moving over to Banana Republic…and wishing I would win the lottery…
This dress –
And this one!
I love them both, and I think I’m just a sucker for gray. You can put any other colors with it and it always looks good.
And who knows if I would ever wear these necklaces, but I think they are awesome.
A little bit closer to my actual budget, I found some great sweaters at Old Navy!
The gray cardigan would go with just about anything, which I love. Any color underneath, all kinds of jewelry options, jeans, skirts, dresses…you name it.
I also love this deep purple button sweater, although I’m sure it’s the wrong color. I am horrible at picking out the right purple for myself! I would have to use my swatches.
And…a grandpa sweater. Love it.
It just looks so cozy!
