We’ve been officially in Fall for a few weeks now and as is typical for sunny SoCal it’s still quite warm over here. As I await the cooler weather I’ve been shopping for a few items to add to my wardrobe with the help of my Pinterest boards. When I pin images, I do it quickly and don’t really think too much about it, just whatever I’m instinctively drawn to, and so it’s interesting to go back and take a closer look at what I’ve pinned and take notice of similarities among my pins. I’ve used those similarities as cues to zone in on my style and come up with a list of what pieces I want to add to my wardrobe. I’ve found that by focusing my shopping with a list, I’m less likely to get overwhelmed and frustrated and less likely to be tempted to buy things I’ll hardly wear and I’ll eventually have to get rid of because they’ve become clutter in my closet.
I haven’t really shopped for myself in awhile so my list includes classics that I’ve been needing to either add or update. Here’s part of my ‘To Buy’ list (I’ll share the other part tomorrow!):
Lots of cozy and chunky sweatersFlat riding boots -any recommendations? I’m looking for a pair that is high quality, comfortable, and fits my thin calves (I hate when there’s a huge gap). Currently considering these, these, and these.

What pieces have you recently added or plan to your wardrobe? Do you make a list of what you want you want to look for before you go shopping?
Back when I was studying abroad in Spain, I remember walking into a Zara Home store and feeling like a kid in a candy store. There were so many lovely decor items everywhere I turned. I was sad to find out though that there were no Zara Home locations in the US, and while that’s still the case, as of this month the line is now available online. I browsed the selection this morning, and found several great trays, boxes, bins and baskets for beautifully organizing the home:
I have to admit – I’ve always been the walk-in-and-throw-everything-on-the-floor type. My poor purses used to find themselves discarded on the floor on a daily basis. But when I became the proud owner of a chew-happy puppy with a penchant for raiding my bags, I knew it was time to find a better solution.
We rent a home without many built-in hanging solutions, so we utilize these over-the-door racks in several rooms. This particular one used to hold towels in our guest bathroom, but now it hangs in my office and is the home for my most-used handbags. (As you can probably tell – I have a bit of thing for black, gold and sequins.) The office is close to the front door, so it’s a quick, convenient spot to unload my purse before I head in to greet my puppy. Plus, I love that my favorite bags are on display instead of hidden in a closet!

A fun idea for clothing storage is utilizing an open rack. It could be a nice spot for organizing outfits for the week or for an edited selection of favorite pieces that also serve as eye candy. A little inspiration…

I love when pieces of furniture are used in a creative way. These glass front display cabinets are no exception. They work so beautifully as shoe organizers:
