Autumn lovelies

I was inspired by this post over at Our Suburban Cottage yesterday, so I wanted to share some of my newest loves. I'm a big fan of window shopping online (and real shopping too, much to the chagrin of my husband), and if you don't know about my intense love of list making, you'll soon learn. Here are some of my favorites for fall:

Cable-knit throws
This one from Pottery Barn just shouts Fall to me... so cozy! Like your favorite sweater, right? Perfect for curling up in with a good book and a cup of coffee.

I can't find a picture of a less expensive, similar version at Target -- but I know it exists! I promise. It's cream, I saw it on an endcap near the fashion bedding. It even has a matching cable-knit pillow, cuuuuuute!

Chai lattes with a shot of espresso
Or without espresso, whatever makes you smile. Don't worry, I love pumpkin spice lattes too! (I don't want to offend anyone, and I know these are considered by many to be the drink for Fall... but if you haven't tried chai, please do so.)


Or if you want to save a little money (for a chai, I'm sure), here's a really similar one I stumbled across at Kohl's last weekend:

Pretty much I love all jackets. Last month I bought a classic trench which made me supremely happy, but today I was reading spark! and I seriously died when I saw this jacket from Target's juniors department:

Why did I die, you may ask? Um, because for over a year I've been secretly lusting after this sort-of-similar-but-way-more-expensive jacket at Victoria's Secret,

And I also want her glowy skin and skinny behind. How do I add those to my shopping cart?

And lastly,

Specifically, those cute ones you see everywhere with the bills... maybe I'm not really making sense. Are they called newsboy hats? Lurve. I'm not sure they're at the cutting edge of fashion, but they look dang cute and they're great to throw on with a ponytail when you just don't have the time to get yourself looking like the Victoria's Secret model above. I have a great charcoal grey one I picked up at the Buckle last year, around the same time that I foolishly ordered this pattern off etsy:

You see, I forgot that I don't know how to crochet. Silly me.

What things are you loving for Fall?


  1. Thanks for the shout out! I think I like the jacket even better in the darker color. I love your blog! :)

  2. oH gReAt....bEsT sEeStEr eVaH...just totally made me think of leaving this stupid dumb office that has offended my senses and made my behind go numb yet again (day 2)this week and spring for a pumpkin latte...are they available already? and, I have to agree, while a Chai with a shot is available all year round I only get pumpkin lattes when the leaves turn AND they make me think of when I was skinny and visiting you with your new little fresh from heaven bundle (Wes) a few years back and we escaped for one at that delish little shop not far from that other house you own in Utah. That was a happy time...let's revisit the skinniness (if only in memory) and the latte. What say you?

  3. Oh seester, I'm for sure down for a pumpkin spice latte. I'm 99% sure they are indeed available. When dost thou want to partake in this autumnal deliciousness?

    You can revisit the skinniness in your memory, but I have none to revisit, what with a 6 day old baby and a still-pregnant backside. Sigh.

  4. Yummy cable-knit afgan there. Target, you say? Dare I hope I might see it as a bed throw? ;)

  5. Sigh. Of course you'll have one. I have to live vicariously through you, sniff.


I ♥ comments. Me + you = BFFs 4VR.
