Fall is my favorite season, and fall clothes are the very best. Give me dark jeans, neutral ballet flats or boots, a striped tee, and a cardigan ALL THE DAYS. I love it!
Just for kicks today, here are some fall “basics” I’d love to add to my wardrobe this year…
This thing has been ALL over the internet lately, but I’m absolutely not above jumping on the bandwagon. I really like that it looks tailored and “put together,” but feels like a cozy sweater. Plus, my dad actually got one of these for my mom for her birthday last week, and I was pleasantly surprised to find it a little longer in person (at least on my 5’3″ mom) than it looks on the model.
Basically, this has all the things I love in one shirt — boatneck, stripes, AND a fun detail at the cuffs. I feel like I’d reach for this one ALL the time.
I really think of black/white gingham as a neutral (right up there with leopard print), and I love the choker neckline and the slight puff to the sleeves on this one (plus, Loft always has such great sales… definitely wait for one!)
This looks PERFECT for pairing with leggings (thank you tunic length) on Saturdays!!!!
A jacket like this is PERFECT for fall layering (key when Mother Nature can’t make up her mind about the seasons or your school/office blast the a.c. year around). I just adore the “popped collar” look on this one, and the material looks so soft and worn. I actually already have a similar olive jacket (that I wear all the time), but I love the “Teak It Away” version too!
I wrote a few weeks ago about my plans to buy ON high-rise jeans… Well, I did buy them, and I really like them! Now, I think I’m ready to add a little excitement to my jeans game with the “it” color for denim this year – gray. Apparently, they go with everything. (Anyone have gray jeans? Do you wear them a lot? Are they flattering on non-toothpicks? Speak truth to me.)
A perfect black dress for everything from work to date nights and beyond… I’m crazy about the simple cut and the gold zippers.
I’ve literally been wanting these for years, but have settled for a Target knock-off instead. This year, I really need to replace my old ones, and I might just splurge on the “real thing” (or ask for them for Christmas). I truly do wear riding boots SO often in the fall/winter (with jeans, dresses, etc.), and this look doesn’t seem to be going out of style anytime soon, so it feels like a pretty good investment…
Now, if I would just win the lottery! 😉
What’s on your fall “shopping list?”
Have a great weekend and… GO TIGERS!
