Pumpkin Spice Latte Inspiration

Gilded Glamour Pumpkin Spice Latte Inspiration

We've recently been experiencing a "cold front" (aka temps under 100 degrees) here in Texas, and It. Is. Wonderful! Today we have a little Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte inspiration. I cannot wait for the fall weather, even if it's only for 2 weeks! With fall comes layers, earth tones and rich jewel tones, Starbucks PSL, football and deer season.

Tote | Jacket | Wedge Boots | Nail Polish | Watch | Shirt

My husband and I go hunting a few times a year. I have a rule that we eat what we hunt. I guess you could call it my Pocahontas diet. With that said, the "Axis Collection" for this tote is printed and is not actual fur. However, it would be a good use for the hide if I could learn to make a bag similar to this. 

These Sorel Boots are the perfect combination of premium full-grain leather and coated canvas. I came across this brand last year, and have fallen in love. I have 2 pairs of their wedge boots and have my eyes on the pair above. Check out my posts here, here and here on their awesome collection. Psssst! They're waterproof!

At some point I'd like to invest in a Barbour Jacket. I have a similar one here from J. Crew. Barbour, frequently worn by Princess Kate, is an English luxury fashion brand best known for its waxed cotton jackets. They're so well known that people tend to refer to any waxed cotton jacket as a "Barbour Jacket" much like how we tend to refer to tissues as "Kleenexes." Tid bit of history, in existence since 1894, Barbour now designs, manufactures and markets weatherproofed outerwear, ready-to-wear, leather goods, shoes and accessories for men, women and children.

Menswear-inspired items in a woman's closet is not a new concept. The feathery-soft fabric of this shirt eases a menswear-inspired plaid shirt complete with rollable long sleeves and a drapey shirttail hem. I'm also very intrigued with the menswear-inspired oxfords currently at Nordstrom. I'm not sure if I can pull them off, but maybe I'll try them out this season.

The Tory Burch Reva watch boasts a supple, stitch-free Saffiano leather that comfortably shapes the trendy wrap-style wristband. I typically don't wear watches since I just use my phone to tell me the time, but this design sure makes me want to!

Last but not least, check out this Essie Nail Polish collection of four mini nail polishes in shades perfect for fall with intensely saturated hues. The "In the Lobby (exotic cinnamon plum)" shade would be my first pick! :-)

Thanks for reading!

    […] in all Starbucks across the country (In fact, we even curated a look based off of the #PSL drink here). Hints of pumpkins, corn stalks and other Fall decor are slowly popping up in stores and around […]
