For example, I have an intense inexplicable desire for a denim shirt. Which, admittedly, is odd for a girl who lives in her jeans and avoids the whole Canadian tuxedo/denim onesy look like the plague. I am loath to invest in a denim shirt because I think it ultimately boils down to a ‘trend’ item and I am way to old for that whole dumpster-chic thing that all the people wearing the aforementioned shirt around my town seem to have going on. I am also not a waif – far from it in the chest department – so I am wary of resembling some sort of cowgirl-hooker as I am also blonde and have a penchant for a bright pink lip. So, alas, I think this is one item I think I will have to consign to the style scrapheap. Sigh. On the other hand I spotted a lovely khaki silk shirt that fits well with my colour scheme and I am still on the look out for the perfect pale blue linen shirt. Any ideas?

Time for a quick list update as it is now completed for Autumn:
-long sleeve Breton tops
-taupe suede booties

For the record, in the staples department I have bought:
-pale blue legging jeans
-dark skinnies (that I am going to crop to the perfect length)
-white cotton tee
-gray marle cotton tee
All of which were insanely cheap for the quality and all were bought in Singapore.
How are everyone’s seasonal shopping lists going?
