On Monday, Amanda reminded us all that there are still so many wonderful summer deals out there waiting to be had. She’s a smart cookie.

But I have a sickness for autumn and it runs deep. Yesterday — as the ac was blasting and the temps reached 90 degrees — I indulged in pumpkin sage ravioli for supper, tore through a bag of Halloween candy like a raccoon on trash night, and sweater browsed online for a solid two hours. Things unraveled fast. So fast.

Before I knew it, I was drumming up my fall fashion wishlist. I outright bypassed the “transitional” clothing and went straight for the chunky knits and studded booties. I even re-introduced the flat iron into my beauty routine and my hair was all like, really? REAAAALLY? C’mon lady, this is not cool!

And I was all, zip it. This is happening.

Yes. I’m ready for apple picking and pumpkin lagers with cinnamon & sugar rims, long weekends leaf peeping and Christmas decorations at the mall (in October). It’s the most splendid time of the year and I — for one — am ready to backdoor summer in exchange for some new duds.

One of my favorite looks for fall ’13 is the preppy, menswear-inspired lines. Boxy car coats, classic button-ups, tartan everything! It’s like all our favorite retail stores enrolled at Oxford and majored in CHIC.

Hey, sign me up, too! I’m totally ready to ace the semester.

  1. Love this look. I was so sad to see that the company with the skirt didn’t ship outside the UK. I’ve been looking for a tartan skirt like that for such a long time!
