When the seasons change, what I like to do is draw up a fashion wishlist before I actually go out and buy anything. This way, I have an overview of the things I would like to have, what I have to splurge on and finally what items I can really do without. What I also find is that it not only helps me to select which items and trends I like, but it also allows me to have an overview of what’s out there. I often find myself not liking many of the items I see around, until I start gathering all items and then realize it is in fact, a sizeable amount. Meet my fall favorites.
Asos Cape in Tweed Check
Asos 60s Longline Duster Co-Ord
I am not really in the market for a new winter coat, but when I find some fun ones, I can’t help but having a look and at least putting them on my wishlist. This year, capes are all the rage and I am still lusting after the perfect burgundy coat.
Checkered fringed Poncho
Pieces Heidi Cape
Apart from capes, ponchos are also all the rage and I have added a few to this wishlist to find the right one. I am liking the one on the left the best, but since that looks more like a blanket than anything else, I am still a bit on the fence about it. The one on the right I am finding a bit simple, but that does mean it will go with a lot of different outfits.
Vila Aztec Poncho
Forever 21 Boxy Plaid Sweater Dress
Out of all the ponchos I found, I think I might like this one best. For one, it’s navy. Secondly it’s a knit/ crochet look and has fringing on the bottom. What’s not to like? And I’m a sucker for a good A-line dress and this long sleeved version looks very warm and cozy.
Urban Outfitters Bubble Shirt Dress
Asos Dress with Bonded Asymmetric Wrap
Dress wise, I find this season quite bland. Most of the dresses are super boxy and flowy and that is not a good look on me. I’m still a little hesitant about the shirt dress, but this flowy one from Urban Outfitters looks like a cute basic. And I just love that powder/ baby blue color of the much most structured Asos dress.
Forever 21 Dainty Rose Skater Dress (sold out)
Forever 21 Grid Patterened Shirt
This dress is perhaps a bit too summery for some people, but I like a good floral dress when I see one. And grids, tartans, plaids and checks are all around this fall and I just love this fun navy colored number Forever 21 is doing.
H&M Flannel white grid pattern blouse
H&M Grid patterned cotton blouse (sold out)
Apart from prints, flannel shirts are also making a huge comeback this year and I am very happy about it. I used to own quite a few of these shirts, but then they went out of style and I didn’t like them as much anymore. I kept my favorite ones around and I bought a green one last year, but now that they are back in full swing, I thought it would be a good idea to add a few more to my wardrobe.
H&M Cotton shirt with plaid design
H&M Seamless Bra
The seamless bra seems like a good idea to have not so much for aesthetic but more for practical reason. I am a person who cannot go without a bra. Too much boob. But I figured that if I had a soft, wireless bra I would at least get a bit of support without having to wear a full on wired push up for a change.
H&M Orange knit sweater
H&M Navy wool cable knit sweater
Fall is the perfect sweater weather and I love a good weather (I can feel another blog post coming right there!), but some reason half of all the sweaters I own are grey. Or black. So I vowed to myself to no longer buy any black or grey sweaters, but only colorful ones. I think I am on a safe side by adding a blue and orange one to my wardrobe.
Urban Outfitters Retro Triangle Button Skirt
BDG Cord Utility Pelmet Skirt
I absolutely adore the left hand skirt from Urban Outfitters and it is a style that I would definitely wear. I also love rocking some corduroy during fall so when I spotted this navy corduroy skirt I thought it would be perfect for fall. It also comes in burgundy and mustard: now all I have to do is pick the color I prefer.
ASOS Denim Dolly Button Through skirt in Mid Wash Blue
ASOS AIRBOUND Leather Chelsea Ankle Boots
I love these types of denim skirts, but I do not always find them flattering on me. I always think I look a little country in them, but then again, I should just figure out how to rock them. Asos do many different ones right now, so there should be a style there that is right for me. And I have decided a need a pair of brown shoes, preferably leather, preferably a Chelsea boot. I live in Chelsea boots during fall so it would be a nice change up after all the black ones I usually wear.
H&M Leather Loafers
H&M Brown Jodphurs
Shoe wise I think of rocking a pair of rad loafers as well. I already own a pair, but those are a greyish navy color and it would be good to have a pair of black ones. I had never heard of Jodphurs, but I do really like this style of shoe. And if I buy a pair of Chelsea boots, I think this would be a good brown option for when I don’t want to wear that type of shoe.
H&M Grey Wool Hat
H&M Messenger style shoulder bag
A hat is an essential accessory for fall and I have a few black ones, but I thought a grey one would be nice for changing it up. I am curious how wide the brim of this hat will be and what it looks like. Hats can be a tricky thing. And when you’re buying brown shoes, you will need a brown bag to match that, not?

Het zwarte en blauwe jurkje vind ik erg mooi! Mooie wishlist!
Thanks 🙂 Er zijn momenteel niet zoveel leuke jurkjes te vinden maar deze springen er voor mij echt uit.
Wat een heerlijke wishlist vol mooie items! Vooral de jurkjes en geruite blouse vind ik erg tof. Een hoedje mag bij mij ook niet ontbreken dit seizoen!
Ja in het najaar zweer ik bij hoeden. Heb er al een aantal, maar die zijn allemaal zwart. Zo’n grijs exemplaar vind ik stiekem leuker.
