Ready, set.....FALL!

I am (sooooo) ready for the kids to be back to school (they go back the 7th of September here) and excited about what the new year holds for them and for me.  For me, the season of autumn with the leaves changing and going back to school is my "new year" rather than the typical calendar New Year on January 1st.  In the fall I feel rejuvenated and ready to get back to routine (I love structure, both in my life and my jackets!) and being healthier (eating better, exercising more and drinking more water), happier and just ready to tackle all that life has to offer! 
I have begun my Fall rejuvenation process with a new's not that different from my old one but basically growing out my bangs to be more like a swoop down across my forehead (since I have a large one).  My hairdresser cut them so that I can put them to either side or even part in the middle....think Victorias Secret model! To style he put a few drops of  Moroccan Agadir Miracle Oil along with some TIGI Bed Head After the Party Smoothing Cream. before blow drying.  That Moroccan oil is pricey but he gave me a few sample packets to try that I bet will last me 6 months to a year (you just use a touch)! 

I am ready but bust out my old leopard pointy toed slingbacks that I got 2 years ago from Ann Taylor.  They are the bomb!  However I may have to invest in a new pair because I wore them a LOT last year and they are really worn down.  This is a problem, since we are still saving up for our big ticket items (couch, computer, etc.) and cannot spend as much $$ on clothes as I have in the past.  Any tips for me??

I have also been eyeing some really cute riding boots. I am a pre-school teacher 3 days a week and as much as I love heels they are just not practical for my job.  I think a riding boot like these might work....
Also my wishlist from titlenine is loooong!  Their clothing is the perfect mix between fashionable and casual for my lifestyle.  Here are a few loves (PURPLE seems to be the new color for fall):

Happy Fall....Happy Shopping!

I found your blog through the SITS Girls Facebook list. I've been looking for more beauty/fashion blogs to add to my list and yours looks great. :)
