And just like that, it’s September! As much as I love summer and hot temperatures, I also like fall a lot. Nature is glowing one last time before winter is coming – the falling leaves and the changing colors of the trees always remind me of the time when I had to go back to school after the big summer holidays. So to me September always feels like the start of a new year. Of course it also means I get to wear all my favorite jackets, boots and knits again, which is a very welcome change too.
It’s been quite a while since my last wishlist, so I thought I’d share some of my cravings and recent purchases with you. I hope you had some great first days of September and wish you all a happy start into the new week – and season!
GUCCI Dionysus bag
It seems like it’s a never ending love story with this bag. For the second time already it’s on one of my wishlists, and it hasn’t left my mind since I was super close to buying it on our trip to Australia (reason told me no back then). When I was back at home I wanted to get it but then the medium size was sold out everywhere. Now that it’s back in stock I’m not sure if it would be better in large. If you have any experience with either of the sizes, do let me know please. Oh well, #firstworldproblems.
You’ve probably seen me wearing my new VIU glasses a lot on my Instagram Stories, because I basically wear it every day. I’m so happy I found a great alternative to wearing contact lenses all the time… Plus, I think the glasses are a cool piece to spice up an office outfit. I’m super happy with their quality and am already contemplating whether I should get a second pair in a different style…
MANGO suede leather jacket
Comes fall, comes my desire for leather jackets. I’m wearing my classic black leather jacket a lot and find it very easy to style for so many occasions. However, I’d love to add a lighter version to my closet. This little suede number doesn’t only look super soft and comfortable, but also like the perfect fall staple.
GIORGIO ARMANI lipstick
I was invited to the intentional launch of Armani’s new Ecstasy Shine lipstick in Paris this August and got to experience it first hand. Back then I had one of the lipsticks in my goodie bag and have been wearing it almost non stop. The creamy texture is very nurturing for the lips and gives them a shiny finish instantly. My favorite color is 505 – Ecstasy. Stay tuned for more infos about the new Armani lipstick – there’ll be a separate blog post soon.
& OTHER STORIES dress
Colorful maxi dresses with preferably with floral prints are one of the trend pieces this fall. While everyone was falling for this version by H&M, my eyes caught the gorgeous red dress from & other stories and I instantly knew which dress I want to celebrate my birthday in this year. Fingers crossed it arrives on time!
& OTHER STORIES boots
While shopping for my birthday dress, the cool embroidered boots popped up and stole my heart right away. They make a wonderful statement piece and would be perfect for fall. But I promised myself (and Patrick) not to buy any other shoes before sorting out my closet… so unfortunately these didn’t make it into my shopping cart yet.
