New Neutrals for Fall

So I've been doing some shopping lately. And by "some" I mean "a lot!" 

I love everything I've bought, but want to hear the weirdest thing? Nearly everything is neutral - black, white, cream, etc. Maybe it's because summer's ending soon and fall is right around the corner? For a self proclaimed lover of hot pink, neons, and sparkles, I must admit I'm a little perplexed by what I've been drawn to lately, but I think these new neutral additions will fit in nicely with what's already in my closet!

Here's what's made its way home with me over the past few weeks:

neutrals

ONE:
I saw this ikat tunic in the window of Anthropologie and couldn't run in fast enough to try it on! This style dress - empire, with a poofyish skirt - is very flattering on me. I'll wear it as a dress now with flats and over leggings with boots when it gets colder.

TWO:
I don't know why I don't shop in Topshop more often - especially when they've got pretty dresses like this one on their racks! This waterfall trapeze dress is so fluttery and feminine, and the shade of cream is perfect.

THREE:
I've been searching for a leopard boot or bootie for ages. Maybe this Dolce Vita flat boot is the one? I ordered it online and it hasn't arrived yet - I'll keep you posted if it's a keeper.

FOUR:
LOFT is another store I don't often hit up, but their stuff is so cute! Believe me when I say that this scribble-patterned dress is INSANELY comfortable... plus it has pockets! Right now it's 40% off - go get one for yourself!

FIVE:
Three Dot leggings are my favorite - they're comfortable and soft and they last forever. When I say forever, I mean it - I bought my first pair the summer before my senior year of college (2006!) and I literally JUST replaced them because they finally got holes in them. Yay for a new pair!

SIX:
Last year, J.Crew released this shoe in bright pink suede - I bought them and have worn them nonstop since. Now they've come out with it in basic black suede - AKA my wardrobe's new go-to shoe!

SEVEN:
I first spied this Free People peplum blouse on the rack in white and fell in love, but ultimately went for it in black. Rest assured I'll be wearing mine with a tank, not a sports bra :) I think it'll look equally nice with a pencil skirt and a pair of skinny jeans!

Don't worry - even though I'm considering these to be purchases for fall, I'm gonna start getting my money's worth out of them ASAP. They're too cute to leave in the closet for two more months!

Great, I just spent a small fortune on Lilly Pulitzer's sale, hit up GAP/ON/Banana last night and Saks yesterday afternoon. I want much of this list! :) PS, if you haven't Checked the Lilly sale, get there ASAP! There is some adorable stuff for a steal!

Yeah I'm going to need those flats. You and Kate Middleton are my major fashion influences.
