"Pre-Fall" Wardrobe Obsessions

Labor Day has come and gone and now we are officially into September and unofficially into fall!

September is a tricky month for the NYC area - warm days and often cool nights makes dressing a bit of a challenge. Since starting the new job, I'm scanning my closet to see what I can utilize in my current wardrobe to look fashionable yet managerial at the same time! I have a bit of flexibility in my styling - business casual with flare might be a good description! But here's a few things that I'd love to add to my wardrobe...

Nine West "Jarrad" Ankle Booties

I know the black is practical but I'm also lusting over the taupe suede color in these "Jarrad" booties by Nine West.

Nine West Genevieve Booties
I want to wear all black and have these as my "kick." Black leather leggings and black tunic sweater paired with an amazing gold necklace seems to be my mental vision of the perfect outfit to pair with these navy Genevieve booties. Of course I also want the light taupe suede color too. Decisions, decisions. I tried them on yesterday at my store and they are so comfy!

H&M Pattern-Knit Sweater
While it's not a tunic sweater as mentioned above, this H&M sweater is the perfect transitional piece from summer to fall... The knit is much more looser and "light" in person vs. the product photo. Side note, having two H&M's within a 5 minute walk in opposite directions of my workplace may be the death of me and my wallet. Upside, it's great window shopping for potential blogging ideas. Downside, I'm trying to resist the urge to buy EVERYTHING.

H&M Plum Circle Skirt
While I will always continue to be obsessed with black, this plum circle skirt would be perfect to pair with all black - tights, booties, tee, and maybe a moto jacket? Loves.

In other news, I need new leggings. This year I'm thinking about trying the Style&Co. Petite Ankle-Length leggings at Macy's because I'm 5'1" and I'm tired of having extra fabric bunching at the ankles. I love Hue leggings but wish they made a petite style and their crop legging is a weird length!

What's on your must-have list for fall? 

ps. Are we friends yet?
