Hot pink maxi skirts are a popular topic, it seems. Just after I posted Monday's entry, a commenter pointed out that The Sartorialist had posted this on his site. And THEN I saw this one, from Zara, on Pinterest.

PS, If anyone wants to go to their local Zara and buy this for me (it's on sale for $19.99!), I won't stop you. In fact, I urge you to try. Go out and hunt, Internet.

Anyway, this post isn't about me and my insatiable need for that Zara skirt. It's about fall. Now, although I find it deeply depressing that it won't be actual fall here until, say, December, I get just as excited as y'all do about all of the new fall stuff we start to see in late summer. J. Crew has the entire Internet in a tizzy about their fall lineup, and you best believe I'll be buying both of these outfits in their entirety.

I will be wearing those wool pants in October with a tank top and flip-flops, but nevertheless, I will have them. Also: bell-bottoms with a velvet jacket? I AM IN.

I haven't seen much buzz around Madewell's fall offerings, which surprises me, because they are KILLING it. Here are my top 5 from their 2011 Lookbook.

I love it all: the silk dresses, the hot colors, the Hunter boots with socks, the leopard print, the lumberjack thing. Let's talk about the shoes on #4 for a minute, though: those are old-school Birkenstocks, y'all. Several of Madewell's other outfits feature cherry red Doc Martens. It really does all come back around... to my freshman year of college. If they start carrying Dickies and athletic socks with floral skirts, I am out.

What are you looking forward to for fall? Is it that it will actually be cold where you live? Then I don't want to hear it.
