Wednesday Want: Williams Sonoma Pumpkin Spice Candle

williams-sonoma-pumpkin-spice-candle

A few weeks back when I was at Williams-Sonoma, I came upon this deliciously yummy smelling candle while at the check out counter.

I’ve honestly been quite good lately and have yet to purchase this candle until it truly is fall *pats myself on the back*. However, come September 22nd, I may not be accountable for my actions when it comes all things pumpkin, including this candle.

Wednesday Want: Leopard Print Tie-waist Skirt

Wednesday Want--Leopard Tie Knot Skirt

As mentioned in my previous post, there are so many things I’m loving at J Crew right now. Not only do the majority of these pieces work for my petite yet curvy body, but they’re also versatile. What a win win!

I love how J Crew paired their tie waist skirt with a khaki shirt and pink coat, giving it a safari inspired vibe that’s also quite feminine. Personally, I’d tone down the print of the skirt by pairing it with a chambray button down and some black booties.

However, you can honestly put just about any colored top with this skirt as leopard print is basically a neutral in its own right.

Wednesday Want: Obvious State’s Bloom Collection

 

Obvious State, a New York City-based design studio cofounded by Evan and Nichole Robertson, combines gorgeous patterns with “provocative language and literature”.

Their most recent collection, the Bloom collection, combines quotes from 6 Romantic Period poets (Blake, Byron, Shelley, Keats, Coleridge, and Wordsworth) with beautiful florals. It currently consists of: 8 totes, 2 mugs, a set of bookmarks, 8 prints, and 8 cards.

I personally just ordered the “Harmony” Mug  and the Bloom Bookmark Set (both pictured), and I am happy to say that the price tag of these items are just as wonderful as the items themselves.

Wednesday Want: KMB Rovira Wedges

WW-KMB Rovira Wedges

There’s nothing quite like a nice wedge sandal. It’s a shoe that you can not only wear to work, but also on the weekend and to all those graduations/weddings everyone seems to be having.I also love how wedges tend to be the most comfortable show you can wear, while still managing to add some height.

This wedge sandal, in particular, is wonderful as the shape and material of it is quite modern, which is refreshing, as is the shorter heel. When you have knee issues, a high wedge is just a nightmare waiting to happen. (Kudos, though, to those who can wear them!)

Wednesday Want: Celane Lace Dress

WW- Celane Lace Dress_1

You know those pretty Self Portrait dresses that you’ve been seeing everywhere (literally)? Yeah, this dress is just like those but half the price. Half!

I also love how the lining is longer than most (a little bit just above the knee) and the light gray-almost lilac coloring of the dress. All in all, this lacy dress from HD in Paris is so chic and perfect for a night out.

Wednesday Want: J Crew Laila Wedges

J Crew Laila Wedges_1

When I recently thumbed through the latest J Crew Style Guide, I was immediately drawn to these wedges.

I love the ankle strap, the variety of colors and fabrics they come in, and the height of the heel. Personally, this floral leather print is my favorite but the blush colored suede ones are gorgeous as well.

Also, now that Phil the Groundhog didn’t see his shadow, these babies will surely see some action with Spring soon to come.

Wednesday Want: UD Gwen Stefani Collection Lipstick

UD Gwen Stefani Collection Lipstick

It’s been awhile since I last wrote a Wednesday Want post, but I knew once I saw the UD Gwen Stefani Collection lipsticks I had to make a post about them.

They’re wonderfully priced below $20 at $18 which is a great price in comparison to other lipstick brands you’d find at Sephora or a department store. I also love the variety of colors, from a deep red to a more sheer nude. The sheer nude color, called Ex-Girlfriend, has to be my current favorite as I feel you can wear it for work or just out and about.

Unfortunately, Ex-Girlfiend and two other shades are out of stock at the moment but there are seven colors to choose from and those out of stock will be available again soon.

Best,
