Fall Trends Obsessions

i have two new obsessions....cargo jackets/vests and ox blood colored anything.
i admit i am very persuaded by the Fall trends. i can't help myself. after flipping through September and October issues of Elle, Marie Claire, Lucky and Glamour, all i crave is deep burgundys and reds in my wardrobe. i foresee that my Fall and Winter will be full of blacks, greys and reds with pops of mint, forest green and whites. i snatched up this awesome French Connection Jacket from Loehmanns. When I saw it i knew immediately that it can be paired with skinny jeans, pencils skirts and just about anything else I have. its best to invest in pieces that can be worn with anything and that you know you will wear on a regular basis.

Jacket: French Connection | Top: H&M | Skirt: Zara see it worn differently HERE
Shoes: L.A.M.B. Mya | Clutch: Zara

im so sad that summer is over but i finally get to wear all my favorite boots and jackets which makes me happy. this is another spin on my Fall Uniform which consist of a jacket and skirt like this post from last week. its also a similar color concept. i really have to force myself not to buy any more burgundy and red pieces. lol. seriously considering cutting my hair this or this.
UPDATE: i actually bought these fabiana's thanks to a reader alerting me to the sale at
