Like a tall glass of lemonade

Fall's hottest new accessories (at least according to me) are knit scarves and structured satchels!

By knit scarves, I mean HUGE knit scarves. The kind that can sweep the floor unless you wrap it 5 times around your head. I'm loving this style not only because of it's warmth potential, but because of its shape. It can take a plain, form-fitting jacket/trench, and turn it into something fun and entirely different. I especially love this kind of scarf on petite people, because it's so overwhelming. It gives the person a kind of a whimsical/boho look without looking too hobo. I'm determined to find a scarf for under $50. I've perused Zara and H&M, but I'm pretty particular about the chunkiness that I want.

I know that satchels have been around for a while, but I'm really in to the new, boxy shape. I think of these as 'doctor' bags. Of course, the cross-body option makes it very popular as well. I'mfavouring these bags in a brown colour, especially cognac. The double buckle is a nice (nonfunctional) detail, and I love the texture on the first bag. The second photo is technically a laptop bag, but I love the stud details, and the extremely rectangular shape. My ideal satchel would have the shape and flap of the first bag, but in a smooth cognac leather, with shiny gold tabs instead of buckles (aka the bag that I saw on some girl in my dentist's office, but who left before I could ask where she got it from).

What fall accessories are you guys on the hunt for?

Ooooh, love the scarves. I'm after a new bag, shoe boots with fur trim and a nice matching hat, scarf and glove set. My mum used to make me wear the matching sets and I hated them but now I think they're totally awesome :)
