september crush list!

1. burgundy bags Don't get me wrong, I dig burgundy-hued bags year-round, but when those autumn leaves begin to fall, I ditch all of the colors in favor of burgundy. This year I'm feeling the mini crossbody / saddlebag aesthetic so I've got my eye on Jerome Dreyfuss' Twee Mini Cross Body Bag in BURGUNDY {which I actually want in every color, but the burgundy is my fave!}, Rebecca Minkoff's Small Feed Bag in TAWNY PORT / SILVER HARDWARE {because that stud detailing adds a little punk to the prep}, and Cambridge Satchel's Saddle Bag in OXBLOOD {that scholarly style slays}.

2. jewel-toned otks I typically seek out boots in blacks and cognacs, but last year I picked up a few suede styles in jewel tones and I tell you I wore them all. the. time. Thus, I'm crushing on OTK's in all of those opulent hues starting with Stuart Weitzman's Lowland Over the Knee Boot in LONDRA SUEDE, Halogen's Noble Over the Knee Boot in BORDEAUX SUEDE {under $200!}, and Stuart Weitzman's Thigh Scraper Over the Knee Boots in NICE BLUE {the color pairs perfectly with dark wash skinnies. Trust}.

3. earthy eyes I may love a good glittery eye, but at the moment I am so feeling earthy tones - rusts, browns, taupes - as they capture pumpkin spice season so well {and make green and blue eyes pop!}. My current obsessions are Anastasia Beverly Hills' Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette {need this like yesterday!}, Marc Jacobs Beauty's Twinkle Pop Stick Eyeshadow in LEILA 416, and The Estée Edit by Estée Lauder's Metallishadow Crème + Powder in SCARLET ECLIPSE {the color is so fire!}.

4. monograms I am so incredibly {fashionably?} late to the monogram party, but better late than never, amiright? While I'm not necessarily feeling those larger than life monograms {you know the ones I'm talking about}, I am seriously swooning over mini monogram necklaces and earrings. My numero uno picks? BaubleBar's Monogram Disc Studs, Square Monogram Necklace, and Threaded Medium Disc Monogram Pendant.

Wonderful things to be crushing on this month! I really like those bags :)

I think I've loved monograms ever since Carrie Bradshaw rocked her famous gold "Carrie" necklace (not a monogram, I know, but sort of the same concept, right?).

I so badly want to rock over-the-knee boots, but to summon a Bridget Jones quote, I definitely have "climber's legs" if you know what I mean! ;)

Hurrah for September being here!

I like some monograms. I'm not that much of a fan of the big ones on bags or something, but if it's a bit smaller and chic, it's nice. LOVE the color burgundy too!

I love summer, but I sure am glad to see burgundy pieces coming around again! That saddle bag is too perfect.
