I Want To Wear This: Fall Fashion and The Mighty Pound

This year has been an expensive one to say the least.

Every dime/10p I've earned over the past 10 months has gone to visas and plane tickets, which is exciting in a big picture kinda' way, but actually just expensive in an everyday kinda' way.

Needless to say, there hasn't been a lot left over for my favorite pasttime of internet shopping + wearing PJ's + eating raisins out of a bowl.  So, as soon as I get my first British paycheck I'm going to do some good ol'British High Street shopping.

Here's a few things I might buy:

Second Floor Flat—I Want To Wear This

ZARA Short Military Coat

Second Floor Flat—I Want To Wear This

Topshop Cut Out Boots

Second Floor Flat—I Want To Wear This

Joe Fresh Shell Tank

Second Floor Flat—I Want To Wear This

ASOS Suede Pocket Shirt

Second Floor Flat—I Want To Wear This

Land's End Long Pleated Skirt


Second Floor Flat—I Want To Wear This

ASOS Dress With Trumpet Skirt


P.S.–if you don't already shop at Land's End, you totally should. They have good quality stuff at decent prices and some of it is really cute...totes not just for moms (not that there's anything wrong with moms).


Gooo fall!

Skinny Heels and You

I’d already been thinking about incorporating more heels into my wardrobe. I figure that if I’m going to be the type of girl who runs away to live with a man in Europe, I should start dressing like it.


After talking to a friend who recently passed through Paris during rush hour on a weekday afternoon (ho hum) and noticed women commuting home in stilettos, I realized that I was out of excuses.

While I  prefer my commute in flats, I’m determined to become the type of girl who can wear + commute in skinny black heels without slowing up the stairwell or looking high maintenance (not to mention tripping, getting stuck in a subway grate, sliding on a recently waxed floor, etc).

Spoiler alert: this probably won’t happen.
