Cravings Corner: {Early Faves}

It's t-minus 2 days until the return of my all-time favorite fall beverage the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks! I'm so pumped I may even spurlge a little and get whipped cream on mine Wednesday morning, haha. I'm told some locations in the U.S. have already started selling these delish treats again, but here in AR, we must wait until Wednesday.

Did y'all have a good weekend? What did you guys/girls do?

This was another absolutely perfecto weekend for yours truly...for some reason, I have a sneaking suspicion they will just keep getting better and better, since fall is my favorite season.

Before we get started, I just wanted to thank everyone for your great questions and comments on Friday's "Fierce and Fit" post. The Muscle Maniac and I would like to extend our gratitude for your interest in this new little segment : ) For those who submitted questions, MM or I will be replying to each of y'all and some of them may even be answered here on the blog!

Also, PLEASE say a prayer for me tonight because tomorrow marks the start of my training with The Muscle Maniac...nervous much? I am. Thing is though, I cannot preach the importance of fitness here on the blog without practicing it myself, so I'm putting my triceps, quads and abs in the hands of MM to whip me into shape.

Ok, well with the looming resurrection of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, I thought I'd share with you fine folks, my list of "ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, WITHOUT A DOUBT, MUST-HAVE IT OR I'LL DIE" items for fall. Ok, so I probably won't die if I don't get them, but I might shed a tear or fifty:

The Laced Julia from Follis - $347

I've blogged about this beauty several times on here already, so y'all know I'll be adding this to my purse collection this fall. LJ is the perfect shade of rich brown and the stunning laced-up detailing make her stand out in a sea of blah messengers and ho-hum satchels. Talk about some sexy arm candy....

Click here for the post with the list of stores where you can purchase your very own Laced Julia OR buy online here or here.

Jessica Simpson "Winsy" Clog- $89
I've walked past this shoe on the display at Dillard's as much as I can bear...it's time to buy, girls. Tomorrow, my pal Euni and I are going to The Mothership (a.k.a. Sephora) and Dillard's on our lunch break at work and I'll be picking up a pair of these. Cannot. Flippin. Wait.

Element "Derry" Womens Hooded Jacket- $59.99

Saw this in a store in San Luis Obispo, CA last month and just had to have it. Problem was, they didn't have my size (cue sad Debbie Downer music), so I scoured the World Wide Web last week and found it! It feels like a hoodie, but looks and fits like a sturdy pea coat. Fashion + Comfort= It Must Become a Resident of Leslie's Closet.

Is anyone else eagerly anticipating the Pumpkin Spice Latte as much as I am? What about fall clothing or accessories...have y'all found any must-haves yet?

Be blessed, lovelies-
