Helen’s August Wishlist

August wishlistI was browsing one of last night and made a fun little wishlist to share with you! It’s August so I’m shopping for summer pieces that can easily transition into Autumn. This is one of my favorite color palettes too. I cheated a little because I already own the coral sunglasses (love them). I’m pretty sure I’m gonna order those color blocked flats too. Extra cute flats are hard to find. And the bag… I’ve been carrying the same purse for over a year. Crazy, no?

Helen’s Wishlist Links: /////////

Do you guys love window shopping? What are some of your favorite shops? xo. elsie

  • I am soooo looking forward to autumn– what a great late summer to autumn transitional wardrobe {I especially love those loafers!}

  • ooooooooh I love me some Modcloth! I’ve been super into shopsosie and Ruche too. SO many cute things to choose from. 🙂 I just bought a pumpkin colored dress from modcloth that I am super thrilled about… hoping the orangey hues stick around for more fall clothes! Love those sunglasses by the way.



  • I won’t pretend that I don’t have a personal connection to this etsy shop – but I think that my mom is really talented and I love browsing through all of the creative pieces that she makes. Just thought I would share 🙂

  • Yay! I love that the beginning of fall colors are making their way out again =)

  • Fall is the best season for clothes, I love the colors, the knitwear and the layered style that comes with it! I don´t have one favourite shop actually, I tend to find things here and there. 🙂

    Love the dresses above!

  • Super cute!!! I LOVE buying clothes in the Fall. Those are some of my favorite colors for the season too. I got a few things at Target this weekend…mainly mustard + rust colors. I’ve also been making a wishlist with the Boden magazine. ♥

  • That is a MAGICAL wish list. Every single thing on it is lovely!!! so cute.

  • Dress number 9 is so cute! 🙂 I don’t think the colour would suit me though because I’m ginger! D:

  • How funny, I just did my on “wishlist”. Not for autumn though even if autumn is coming early to Stockholm, Sweden. Please check out my list:

  • lovely list, and my favorite color palette, too 🙂
    i’ve been all over modcloth, ruche and anthropologie lately!

  • adorable…although I have to admit that the prospect of fall shopping makes me a little sad! I always miss the ease of dressing in the summer when the seasons change.

    at least there’s a whole slew of September issues to look forward to, right?

  • Yay Modcloth! I recognize a lot of stuff from there…it’s a fantastic store. And best part – they ship to Taiwan for the same price! That made me ridiculously happy. 🙂

  • This is darling, and I absolutely adore ModCloth! The “For Many Sunsets Dress” is going right on my ModCloth wishlist. If you don’t mind me asking, what program did you use to create this wishlist and add the cute little text?

  • that’s some great stuff! i’m loving number 4 and 6!
    hope your wishes come true! 😉


  • The dresses are so adorable! Love the color palette and definitely need those coral sunglasses, so pretty!

  • All those items are very nice! love the sunnies!! the cream dress with the orange stripes is really cute!

  • Number 3 and 4 are my favorite. Not only do I love dresses, but I’m really into the muted, warm, fall colors right now.

    – tianna 🙂

  • Love the colors…Fall is my favorite season for that very reason 🙂 The bag is great too.

    May I ask when the contest winner for the July giveaway will be announced? I’m not even sure if my comment was recieved because I didn’t see it later when i visited the page…

    Have a stupendous end of Summer!

  • Those shoes!the #5…I remember them in the 90’s, I loved them back then…I think I would love to have them again. My birthday is soon, so I’m going to make my wishlist, maybe I’ll include the shoes, the dresses, the purse…mostly everything you picked here 😉

  • Whole lot of cuteness in this post! Modcloth is definitely one of my favorites! Nasty Gal is a close second.

  • So pretty!!! I love #3 and #9. I recently bought a dress at smart set and it’s very similar to the pleated mustard dress. <3


  • I really want a key necklace as well! And all those dresses you picked out are so cute!!


  • Eeeeeek, I want it all. Except the loafer pumps, I don’t think I could pull that off (aka I can’t walk in heels so that’s my excuse). Love anything mustard, as well.

    xoxo, hm

  • Oh my goodness, I love everything on this wishlist. You have great taste 😉

    As a side note…I’ve been using my 10-cent purse (from the Goodwill outlet, no less) for around two years yet, and it’s never let me down!

  • My favorites are No.4 and 5, are cute and perfect for color pallete of autumn
    Some shops I love are: H&M, Asos, Modcloth, Bershka.. mmm I wish to buy at Forever 21 but they don´t ship to El Salvador T_T, but I read they are going to open one shop in my country, so I can´t wait.
    Great list.

  • I love your wish list! I actually those flats on my wish list too! Happy shopping!

  • Love all your choices but especially that key necklace – its beautiful, ooo and dress number 9!

  • I love number 3! But all of these items look great and most of it would go together so well! Very nice list.

  • Love all the dresses and other items you picked for autumn. Such lovely colors!!! Living in south Florida we don’t get autumn and every year I miss it terribly!!!

  • I absolutely LOVE the key bracelet! J. Crew is the place I most often find myself window shopping but Ruche is a very close second!

  • Oooh these are just the types of colours I’ve been rocking this winter down-down-under!!! (New Zealand). I’ve been getting heaps of compliments so the colours have been making my day in more way than one – which is just what you need on grey days. Check out the mustard items I’ve lived in this year and more colours for fall 🙂

  • I believe those are ModCloth dresses, or is that just me? Hahaha! I love your list Helen! Oh, and before I forget. I nominated Spiegeling to the Versatile Blogger award. Here’s the link: Versatile Blogger Award xx

  • Hi! I really love reading your blog. There’s so many creative and wonderful ideas. I’d like to ask: How do you do that kind of collage thing or I don’t know what it’s called and number it just like in your photo above.

  • My wife loves the dress in number 3. Have to keep my eye out for it as a Christmas gift. Thanks for the inspiration!
