Fall '12 Wish List

Since I've been gone, I have seriously been shopping my cute little face off.  Something about the change from summer to fall makes me forgo food, gas money, & common sense and just splurge on tights and sweaters like it is my job.  It's not my job, though, and I have to tone it down before 2013.  However, there are some must have grabs on MY list of things I cannot live without during the upcoming chilly months.
Here we go...

1. Classic white button down:
I have to replace my old standby, the J. Crew WBD is imperative to winter layering and look chic in an instant.
Gimme gimme.
2. Oxblood:
It is everywhere on the fall fashion line, so it is very easy for me to find a piece to add to my collection. The must have color translates easily in to any ensemble.  Although I'll probably browse for a good sweater in the enviable color, I love these leggings!

3. Loafers:
I am a self-denying shoe addict, but there is one exception for this fall.  I will own a pair of nice loafers! I love these from calf hair loafers from Gap, but budgets might prohibit me to finding a less pricey pair around town.

4. A Serious Splurge:
This is it, folks.  A culmination of perfection in this merrymaker's opinion THIS COAT!
I love the Gossip Girl-ish vibe from it, plus I've never said no to anything leopard.  It's plush and looks warm, and I just think I would be the most chic teacher with carpool duty!  Give it to me, baby!

So far, that is what I am craving adding to my fall/winter wardrobe.  What items are on your must own list?  What trends are you most looking forward to? Let a girl know!

The Sass Is Back!

Boy, oh boy, I have missed opening up my Blogger dashboard on the daily.  I have missed my camera timer, the dinky tripod, the interaction with my great friends of the interweb, comments and feedback from family and friends, everything!  You may ask, "Dear Merrymaker, what has kept you away for almost TWO months?  You don't write, you don't call!  What is this madness?"  And I will tell you, my dearest little chickens, that LIFE has happened.  I cheated on Robert Pattinson, had a baby named Maxwell, and married Justin Timberlake in Italy. What have you done recently? 
Wait, maybe I didn't do those things... but the point is I did not want to be one of those bloggers who take a break and constantly apologize for lack of updating.  That's no fun.  No one likes to read that.  I wanted to get my new school year figured out, and take some time to focus and be sure I was really ready to blog again!  Honestly, I have just been watching a ton ton of Gossip Girl.  I miss this hobby, and I am very much looking forward to getting back in to it.  I hope all my little dear chickens are out there and ready for some merrymaking! Thanks so much for all of the emails and texts checking up on me.  My favorite one might have been from a little blonde Southern blogging friend of mine, who told me "she missed my sass." I cannot wait to catch you up on my life and my fall wardrobe.  Well you know what, the sass is back and better than ever.
