No-Spend August is coming to an end in just a few days, eek, so we’ll have a big update next week all about how it went and what we learned. But in the meantime, I just can’t help but think about ALL the things I could buy on September 1st!
I hate to get all “it’s fall, yay” like every other blogger out there, especially because it’s not at all fall. It’s been hovering steadily around ten thousand degrees all week, so fall just doesn’t really seem like a thing quite yet. However, these fall-like colors have been ALLLL I want for months now. Almost every single thing I’ve bought this summer — no, this whole year — has been mustard, olive and navy. Seriously, every single thing. Throw some blush pink and that lovely rust color, and it’s exactly the color palette that has been swimming in my head for months.
So while I haven’t quite decided exactly what I’m going to buy at the stroke of midnight on September 1st, haha, chances are some of these things will make the cut!
Pillow covers — left, right — both H&M: I love this color right now and love how it would play with the blush pink and cooler teal/aquas in our living room. Bonus, both of these pillow covers are less than $10 each!
Wooden plant pot, H&M: I’m pretty obsessed with everything in H&M’s “Wild Wood” collection, which is full of the best warm neutrals, like the pillows above, and lots of different wood tones. I’d particularly love to stock up on a couple of these wood plant pots.
Rust trench coat, ASOS: ever since we started watching Suits a few months ago (because Meghan, of course), I’ve been wanting a classic trench coat so badly. I can’t afford Donna’s perfect Burberry trench (you know the one, season 4, ep 3), but this ASOS version is much more affordable AND in the most wonderful warm cinnamon color that just screams pumpkin spice latte.
Toddler girl fox jumpsuit, Target: the kids need new things too, probably even more than me, and I’ve stopped to look at this adorable jumpsuit at every recent trip to Target. Those bell sleeves, the fox print… it’s so, so cute.
Toddler Harry Potter sweater, Target: I’m also in love with this sweater. I showed it to Joey and she said she didn’t like it. WHAT? I’m so glad Olly doesn’t have fashion opinions yet. My goal is to get the kids to love Harry Potter as much as Andy and I do… start them young!
Olive joggers, Ann Taylor: I really want a pair of pants that’s somewhere between leggings and jeans to take the kids for a walk or run errands. I’m so sick of tight pants!
What are you guys wanting for fall? Are you even thinking about fall yet or are you hanging onto summer as long as possible?
