Bring on Fall {my fall necessities}

So....as per usual...I'm ready for summer to be over.  Weird right?  I'm ready for the crisp weather of fall, the changing leaves, the pumpkin spice creamers and kids back in school.  I'm learning as a mom, I like the routine that school has provided to my 6 year old.  It gives a great balance to our little fam and this working from home mom that I am.  So....bring on fall!

With fall comes the want for a whole new wardrobe! Hey, a girl can dream right?  I thought today I'd just share with you what I have in my "carts" all over the web.  (Do you do that....add things to your cart, just to pretend you're buying?)

I'm on the hunt for a great pair of low heeled ankle boots and I'm thinking these are a winning pair.

The Sam Edelman Petty style seem to be my top runner at the moment

I'm also looking for a great fall hat.  Something that has a good size brim, is wool and just screams "I'm looking good hiding my not so clean, mom hair"
This one from Free People is pretty amazing

I'm also loving the Dalila from Brixton in moss, because I am a red head and we look good in green. =)

I also learned pretty quickly last year that getting my son to school on time and me looking even half way decent was a challenge....not to mention in the fall and winter months it was chilly.  I'm loving this look I found on Pinterest
Head over to Happily Grey and you'll see so many cute inspiration items
I'm thinking I need to grab me a puffy vest

And lastly...I'm working on making a pair of my existing favorite jeans into the perfectly "loved" jean.  Do you get what I mean by "loved"?  I'm mean ripped just so perfectly that they look like I've had them forever.  Have you noticed that if you find the perfect pair of ripped jeans already made that way, they cost a fortune?  And then you kind of have to realize...I'm paying how much for a destroyed pair of jeans? So, I'm just going to do it myself.

I have these slightly ripped ones from the LC Lauren Conrad collection from Kohls in the medium wash (which are on clearance right now)
I've cut my own slit on the knee, rubbed it on my concrete outside, washed them a few times so that they start to fray and then repeat and repeat.  It isn't that hard to get the look of the perfect ripped jean, if you just put some work into it.  It will save your pocket book!  I'm sure you'll see me wearing them all fall. 

While I'm dreaming of fall I'll continue to sit here in my cut-offs and tank top because it is definitely still summer here in So Cal.
