6 Must-Haves for Fall


Happy Wednesday! I hope you've missed me as much as I've missed you all... It has been a whirlwind few weeks as we've ::

  • bought a house
  • gutted the house {by ourselves is the key word... and I wouldn't recommend it for those of you who don't enjoy manual labor}
  • finished renovations
  • moved in
  • got a brand new puppy

Does that get me off the hook for my lack of blogging? I hope you will forgive me. I'm settled in and back in action! September is here and this morning I felt the slightest crisp in the air and got so excited for the fall season. It's definitely my favorite time of year not only because of the crisp temps, beautiful leaves and pumpkin spice lattes, but because of the FASHION. Fall fashion is by far the most effortless, and in my opinion, flattering. Today I'm telling you about 6 things you must have in your closet as the fall weather approaches ::

  1. Lightweight Scarves...The perfect accessory for a chillier day or an evening out. Simply throw on the scarf and let it hang without tying it, or circle it around your neck to use it in place of a necklace as your main accessory. Think of a lightweight, fun scarf as the cherry on top of your ice cream sundae.

  2. Riding Boots / Booties...Need I say more? Fall is all about boots in my opinion. They are chic and stylish yet easy to throw on. They give a polished look to an outfit that's as simple as leggings or skinny jeans or as dressy as a dress and tights. Try a bootie with a block heel.

  3. Pixie Pants...I live in pixie pants during the fall and winter. They are basically a thicker, more sleek version of leggings with seams that run vertically down the pant and a zipper in the back. Who doesn't wish they could wear leggings all day, every day and it be socially acceptable? Now you can...if those 'leggings' happen to be pixie pants. They come in multiple colors so you can play around with your pixies.

  4. Ballet Flat...Ballet flats are essential for fall. Try a leopard or a fun color and add a little extra something to your t-shirt and jeans ensemble. These leopard Steve Madden flats have become my go-to; the main reason being they are lined with a SUPER soft material and you feel as if you're wearing slippers all day! Yes, please.

    By far my new favorite flats!

  5. Patterned Blouses...My go-to outfit in the fall is my pixie pants and a flowy top. I accessorize with jewelry, scarves, belts and layering pieces but these are my foundation. If you're not too budget-conscious, you can find amazingly unique and fun tops at Anthropologie. If you're really trying to watch your wallet, try places like Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx, Old Navy and Marshall's. You'll be amazed at what you can find!

  6. Vest for Layering...My military vest has seemed to stay with me year-round. From maxis in the summer, to blouses in the summer-fall transition, to layering over blouses and cardigans in the cooler months, this olive green vest is the perfect layering piece for your fall needs, and the perfect neutral for the other colors in your wardrobe.

    Layer over a maxi while the temps are still warm, or over a cardigan this fall!

    So start prepping your closets for the fall season... It will be here before you know it!
