8 fall must-haves on my back-to-school wish list


This week, two things happened: I had a coffee date with my super stylish friend Ali, and Alan started school again (he takes night classes after work). It’s back-to-school time! So, on our date, Ali wore a pair of leopard print flats with a chambray shirt and looked like she was ready for fall. Her cute outfit inspired me to start thinking about how I want to dress this season, so I’ve pulled together a fall shopping list. Here’s what’s on my wish list, starting with #1: the perfect pair of jeans that’s equal parts stylish and comfy.
fall trend 2012: jewel-toned blazer
#2: a jewel-toned blazer
fall trend 2012: chunky knit sweater
#3 chunky knit sweaters that can be dressed up or down
#4: black opaque tights for looking chic and staying warm
#5: TOMS desert wedge boots which look so comfortable
fall trend: leopard print shoes
#6: leopard print flats 
#7: a timeless camel-colored coat

#8: a pair of Hunter boots—these have been on my wish list for years!
