Autumn wishlist!

w i s h l i s t !
a u t u m n
I try to do four of these a year, and I have found that the Spring and Autumn ones are my favourites to do! So this Autumn, I have been thinking a lot about Hoisery (Australia is so hot that socks, knee highs +stockings all together have had to be put on a stand still for the summer); dark, rich colours (very autumn) and long sleeved dresses.
So here is my (rather extensive) dream wish list!
i) stockings + socks....I know I have said it on here many times, but I am still on the search for those heart printed stockings, grey stockings, grey + navy + black socks and white stockings with black polka dots, a la Lula.

ii) Long sleeved, loose fitting dresses in white, blue and black.
The one Erin Fetherston is wearing (her design evidently) is a dream dress. I have been looking for a perfect one like this for over a year luck! The black one Jen Brill is wearing is also lovely! But I would have to say the winner is the baby blue Lover dress which is probably the most unrealistic one for my to buy, sadly!iii) a military style jacket---but not one that is too heavy. I am loving 'olive' recently. I blame Chloe and Secret Squirrel.iv) Navy, Emerald green, Mustard and Maroon knits. Such a perfect autumn pallet. I am in love with this sweater from Partof (I love the lilac shorts too!!) but I will probably end up buying these vintage.v) Loose fitting black or beige pants! I am not really a pants person, but I would love to give pants this shape a try! They look ultra flattering, and they just look so cool + relaxed, while being feminine at the same time. I love how this girl has styled hers!

vi) a denim/chambray dress! I have been searching for a vintage one and have had no luck size wise, but there are a few out there. There are so many pretty new ones out there also, like this Secret Squirrel one! (to the left)vii) anything that looks like 'Alexa Chung for Madewell" I wonder how expensive the clothes will be when converted to Australian dollars? Regardless, I am in love (more specifically) with the coat, the velvet top, the chambray top, the striped top and the velvet shorts ( I would love to re-create that look!)
viii) clogs! I know I have been going on about the clogs, but I think I am going to buy the Funkis ones. The only picture I could get of them is the black ones, but I want the light wooden ones. They are so quirky and sneaky heels. Love it!
And that is my make believe Autumn wishlist!
(although Im sure in two weeks, much more additions will need to be made)
Au revoir!
