wish list inspired by fall

happy september.  i can't believe its almost autumn already.  ill admit it, fall is quite possibly, okay, most definitely my most favorite time of the year - season wise anyways.  id have to say my favorite time of the year is christmas (obviously) but christmas alone will  have so many posts devoted to it that i won't go on about how much i love it.

here are some pretty things that i love and most definitely am adding to my wish list.  all are inspired by fall. enjoy.

many things i love about fall are obviously:
1. the leaves changing colors.
2. the cool temperatures.
3. the sweaters, the scarves.
4. okay everything fashionably wise about autumn.
5. pumpkin bread.
6. that one night when it hits you that its autumn and you know that your comforter has to be slept with because your sheet or blanket aren't enough anymore.
7. not receiving the "are you crazy" look when i order a hot coffee or hot chocolate (okay i only do this once or twice during the summer).
8. pumpkin spice lattes.
9. autumn just has cozy written all over it.
10. its soup weather.
11. back to school season.
12. when you walk outside in the morning and frost sticks to the grass.
13. seeing your breath for the first time because its so chilly out.
14. boots can be brought back out of the closet.

Some of the pictures above can be found below: 


for any of you who know me, you know how important love is in my life.  for those of you don't, well, now you know that love has a very big role in the way i go about things, the way i live, and my views on life in general.  i have been in love before and it was a great love.  one that i miss more on somedays than on others.  its taken me a long while to get to the point where i am at with it today, but ive grown up a lot in the mean time and my perspective on love has changed as well.  i do know more of what i want in a partner in life though and i do know more of what i want in a husband.  so someday, we will see if that will be found in someone new or if it can be found and grown from the past love.  i know that the answer to that can only be figured out in time, but i'm willing to wait, because i know it will be worth it.

thats another things im going to be writing about as well in this new little blog of mine.  i came across this lovely blog called "the wild and wily ways of a brunette bombshell" in which she writes about her life in new york city.  she also writes these little letters to her future husband she hasn't met yet.  some people might think thats a little bit odd, but i think that thats so neat and romantic almost.  i love that idea.  maybe i'll start doing that too. we'll see.

i wanted to share with you some quotes of love that i've found that hold some sort of meaning to me, or have struck me in some way.  i hope you can enjoy them too.  the first quote i'm sharing is one that especially holds a lot of meaning to me because I have felt exactly this before. i adore this quote, and the book it comes from.

hair muses

these two lovely ladies are always the first ones i go to when i can't decide how i want to dye my hair. 

i absolutely love zooey's hair color and style. the straight across bangs are so fabulous.  i love them.  her hair is so cute and 60's.  i really need to cut my bangs like hers before too long.  just so i can say that i've tried that look on myself (besides in 3rd grade).  i just love everything about her and i have adored her for as long as i can remember.

mila kunis is absolutely beautiful no matter what she does.  hands down, she is one of my most favorite actresses in hollywood right now.  i love her slightly off-center part, and i love the golden tones highlighted throughout her hair.   the light waves and then in one of them photos how its so straight.  i need to get my hair back to a healthy state so it can be shiny and naturally long like hers.  so gorgeous.

being sickly && the new girl...oh && rachel zoe too

being sick today has allowed me to just lay on the couch and watch "the real housewives of new jersey" marathon that was on bravo ALL DAY.   can i make a bold statement and just say that i love the new jersey housewives the most out of ALL the housewives.   it could be my new jersey ties with my entire family living back there, but i just love everything and all the ladies this season.

anyways, another new show starting up again is "the rachel zoe project."  i absolutely adore rachel zoe, if you couldn't tell by my post about fashion muses/inspirations.  if i could have a career anything like hers, oh my.  you could count me as the happiest girl in the world if that were to happen. but first, i need to get my own closet/wardrobe/style in order.  she has a great fashion blog though. if youve never seen it, i highly recommend taking a look.  i'm sure i'll be referring to it quite a bit as time goes on.

has anyone seen the previews for the show starting in a week or two "the new girl" ? zooey deschanel stars in it. i am so excited to watch this. i know its going to be a show ill love. i swear to you the first time i watched the preview for it i thought "...zooey deschanel is me in this show." no joke.  so im even more enthusiastic to become an avid watcher of this show.  im wondering if i'll still think the same thing as the show goes on, but im sure i will.

fashion inspirations && muses

when writing about fashion, i have to share some of the people and era's the inspire me the most.

as far as time's that influence the way i dress and the styles and fashions i love are:

now as you can see above, i obviously love a lot of decades that i love.  if i could take little pieces of each one and insert them and infuse them in every which way in my wardrobe, oh my. PERFECTION would be achieved.  i don't think that i have a favorite time period however though. i adore the 60's. i suppose that could be my absolute favorite if i had to choose. so we'll just go with that.

as far as style muses and inspirations i would have to say that i absolutely always look to the styles of:

mary-kate olsen

rachel zoe

sienna miller

audrey hepburn

nicole richie

rachel bilson
