Guest Post: Sarah from Apparently Obsessed

Thanks so much to Sarah from Apparently Obsessed for guest posting for me while I am on vacation! Sarah has sophisticated style, with a sensible feel. She is also a Kansas City mom, and posts about great things for kids (especially little boys!). Here is her Fall 2011 lust list...

I am SUPER excited to be guest blogging on Scout today.  Big thanks to Melanie, who was a real-life acquaintance, became a blogging friend and is now a real-life friend too! 

Compiling my Lust List was a treat...and gave me a chance to take all the Fall trends I am seeing and bring them to (real) life.  Here we go!

Manly Things.  Masculine is a big trend for Fall.  And while the pantsuits and ties are a little much for my every day life, something we can incorporate is a great loafer.  And I love this "Glenda" Loafer from Lauren by Ralph Lauren.  The perforated trim is a nice feminine touch and you can never go wrong with black patent.

Colored Pants.  We saw a bit of this trend last year but it's sticking around.  And again, not really my thing.  So I plan to add my pop of color on my lips.  Mac's Brave Red is perfect.  It's a creamy muted red with a bit of a sheen.  It's very dewy looking and feels nice on the lip.  It's a great entry in to the "red lip" look that is also pretty popular right now.

Hippie Chic.  LOVE this trend.  Channeling my inner Zoe is right up my alley.  Can't wait to pair these Citizens of Humanity "Hudson High Rise" jean with a wedge and a silky blouse.  This will quickly become my go-to going-out outfit.

Geometric Prints.  I have always been a stripe girl.  They are kind of geometric, right?  But I adore this polka dot scarf by Marc Jacobs.  So great to pump up a simple t-shirt and jeans or as your go-to every day scarf.

Bags.  We got new backpacks every year, right?  So a new handbag seems fitting.  Personally, I think a handbag should be a classic shape and color - something that can last a few seasons and trends.  I cannot stop thinking about the capsule collection Sofia Coppola did for Louis Vuitton - classic speedy shape, rich colors, top handles AND a strap!  While this leather one is beautiful...

Look at the gray suede!  Love that it will get more relaxed and broken in with use.  (Unfortunately, this is pretty much sold out everywhere so it will have to remain a lust.)

Thanks for having me Melanie!  Be sure to stop by Apparently Obsessed for musings on all my favorite food, fashion and finds!
