fall faves


fall is my fave.  favorite for weather.  favorite for wearing.  favorite for sharing.  the breeze, the colors and the crunch of the leaves make room in my soul.  every switch of the season bids for a little shopping (or at least wish listing).  and, depending upon what you need it can vary.

here are a few things on my list this fall/

1/  quilt coat–  two things i love; quilts + coats.  not sure how i wouldn’t love this white loungy yet modern wearable quilt.  also loving every plaid variety i can find too – like this.

2/  the best yes–  currently reading this and loving it.  i have been looking for a decision making book for a long time (i’ve been trying to get better at decision making.  yes, what to do but more so, how to have to courage to commit to the decision sooner and then own it).  thank you lysa terkeurst for writing this.  this is for anyone, who feels bad when they say no.  say yes, when they want to say no.  really want to say yes not to just good things but the best things for you personally.  learning to say no so that you can say yes to what you are meant to spend your heart and time on.

3/  tizita stacking bracelets–  the lastest from fashionable (you know i love their scarves – never travel w/o one + their blanket totally makes my bedroom).  i really love fashionable because they continue to create sustainable business for women.  their products have a story behind them and many happy futures ahead of them.  the story of these bracelets comes from the entoto mountains in ethiopia.  the beads are repurposed bullet casings and scrap metal by farmers in the area.  they are hand made by a group of beautiful women at entota – a place of healing for those affected by HIV/AIDS, treating them with dignity + respect, and providing a fair opportunity to support their families.

4/  kate spade glazed mug–   fall requires a good mug in had at, almost, all times.

5/  doc marten boots–  well, i already took the birkenstock plunge this past summer (and have not regretted it one bit).  so i figure i might as well make my 90’s revival complete with some docs.  i never had a black pair and i think i should do something about that.

what about you?  what is on your fall wish list this year?

    LOVE that quilt coat. Want it desperately. Off to rob a bank right now so I can get it. (Even though it is quite affordable, just not in my budget right now. And thanks for posting something actually affordable rather than a $2000 lovely.)

    Just this morning I was on Amazon looking at Lysa Terkeurst’s book, The Best Yes. I’m thinking about using this book for a small group study. You are the second person, in as many days, that has told me it is a good and helpful book.

    The book sounds interesting and useful! On my wish list for autumn/fall, I want a knee-length woollen jacket and some trendy sweaters for the colder days that are about to come – still want to look good as well as being prepared!

    Nice fall pics! I think I could use some Docs too. Is there an age limit on those?
