Ava Grace's Closet: All About Fall

All About Fall

September is here. (when did that happen?)
Every year around this time, without fail,  I find myself sick and tired of my summer wardrobe and excited to start wearing fall"ish" clothing again.  
I love the change of season but unfortunately, the excitement never lasts. Before long, the real cold arrives, and I'm left wishing for warm weather, bikinis and ice-cream all over again. 
A girl can never win.

I have begun to hunt out and purchase a few fall must-have's; this year being especially fun since I haven't shopped for any work attire in like, forever...or at least since buying maternity clothes. And we all know those don't count.

I have already purchased a few key pieces that include:
1. a black pencil skirt with gold zip closure
Zara - $49.90
2. Black everyday pumps (with bow accent ~ so sweet)
Nine West "Alice" - $79.99
3. Chocolate Brown wedge boots (anxiously waiting for these to arrive!)
MsKG via Asos - $108
4. Handfuls of gold necklaces (here are two of them ~ I'm planning on layering like cray-zay)
Forever XXI "Circle Pendant" - $3.80

Forever XXI "Cross Accent" - $5.80
5. Cozy sweaters with interesting sleeves ~ there might have been a few.
Sweater by BCBG - $128 (note: I found mine sans stripes in charcoal for $59.95  at Winners aka TJMaxx)

I continue the search for:
1. The perfect navy blazer
(this lovely by Balmain on  Ms. Aniston would totally do)
2. The perfect trench. 
I contemplated this one from BR at length. Which also comes in black.
And then decided I didn't like the pinstripe lining. Or do I?
Classic Trench by Banana Republic - $240
3. The perfect wedge ankle boot. 
In soft, black leather. I have tried these pretties. I may go back.

Michael Kors "Bromley" ankle boots - $199 
Fall is in the air.
I can feel it.

  2. I feel exactly the way you do about fall...I love it, but I don't like what comes afterward here in Northern Illinois!

    I absolutely love the "key pieces" you've bought and are looking for. I'm also on the lookout for a navy blazer, and a new black one as well.

    You're GORGEOUS, by the way!

    Found you through Fashion Friday...I will definitely be back!

  10. I love that blazer on Aniston! Well luckily or unluckily, however you see it, we only have two seasons here. Hot and rainy...so that means summer wear and raincoats!
