I have to admit my fall shopping list is pretty slim.  I have a few things that need replacing and as my strategy is now quality over quantity I am not rushing out to buy lots of new trends this fall.

Here are the goodies on my list:

Wedge desert boots. I've been in love with these Doc Martens for months now.   Whether I come home with the purple (below) or grey version is yet to be seen.  I like this style because they will work great to replace my long time wedge loafers with pants for work (which makes me lean to the grey).  They will also look fun on weekends with skinny pants or my boyfriend jeans.


I also have like these other Docs, in an oxford wedge style.


Lady Like Blouse - I still need more blouses in my closet.  Too many years wearing t-shirts and cardigans and it is time to grow up.   I was thinking a peplum might be a fun, lady like blouse, to add  to my closet.  But as I reviewed my pinterest board from the fall shows, almost everything I pinned was a dress, a suit or a dramatic coat.   So I'll share the latest item on its way to me from Kiyonna.

Fall colours - This year the hot fall colours are literally fall colours with lots of  lovely deep reds, burnt oranges and mustard yellows.   I have no particular piece in mind, but would love to add a dress, blazer or blouse in one of these colours.  I have always been attracted to these colours and know I can mix them easily into my wardrobe for years. Love this mustard dress from Haider Ackermann.

Still on the hunt for... a white button down shirt.  This item has been on my list for 2 years and I still haven't found a fantastic white button down shirt that fits my shoulders, chest and waist. While I haven't been looking that hard over the summer for this closet essential, I would like one for fall. Although I am tempted to give up and try a chambray/denim shirt instead.


The Essentials...

I also need quite a few boring, but essential pieces.  They include:  new Zumba sneakers, sports bra, new spanx, new bras, a new convertible or strapless bra (a challenge to find with my ummm curves).

What do you plan on picking up for fall?  Do you have any favourite trends?
