5 Essentials for Fall



Hello Beauties!

Cooler weather is finally here–thank you God! Freaking out because you’re not prepared?

Well don’t.

Today we’ll cover the trendy 5 essentials for fall to protect you from the chill in the air. There are many different styles, colors, and shapes for each piece offered below so select those that fit your body type and personality!

1.) Poncho

This outerwear piece is a fashionable replacement for a traditional jacket or sweater if the weather allows. I adore the ones made with wool or cashmere material which keep your body warm and cozy.


2.) Plaid Shirt

Plaids are back in action this season and look adorable partnered with a fur vest, topped with a blazer or poncho, or layered with a basic tee and sweater.


3.) Flared Jeans

These jeans were retro and hip for the spring but can also be taken into the fall/winter months. A darker wash is the best for every body type and can be accessorized with a belt and finished off with pumps or ever ballet flats. Try high waisted styles if you dare.


4.) Tall Riding Boots

I can hardly wait to pull out my tall riding boots with a pair of skinny jeans and a tunic style denim top. Black or brown can work but brown tends to be more versatile. Get crazy and partner these boots with white jeans to winterize that key essential from spring.

5.) Long Sleeve Tee

Like I mentioned in last week’s post {Four Ways to Style a Basic Tee}, this is such an easy and versatile essential for all year around. It can be easily dressed up or down. Make sure you focus on the neckline fits you best as you get creative on styling this key wardrobe ingredient.

I hope this summary of the 5 Essentials for Fall will help you take inventory and be smarter with your shopping habits.

What are your favorite places to buy fall clothes and your go-to pieces in this chilly weather? Share the love.

Fashionably Yours,

The striped tee never goes out of style. It pairs perfectly with other patterns as well as with denim, leather, khaki and the list goes on and on. Screen Shot 2016-04-25 at 10.29.33 AM


Paired with black trousers at work or thrown over jeans while running errands on the weekend, the white oxford is easily dressed up or down.

Don’t be afraid to partner denim with a bright colored pair of jeans, a fancy skirt, or even with denim jeans. Denim on denim is a popular trend right now! Think of this chambray shirt as a neutral.

Paired with blue jeans and a fun flat or wedge, a patterned shirt {A.K.A. stand alone top} can dress up any outfit and add a punch of something fun to your look. Screen Shot 2016-04-25 at 10.31.24 AM


Layered under a leather jacket/ blazer or just thrown on for a day out with kids with a scarf, the lightweight layering tee is versatile in so many ways.

1.} Chambray Popover Shirtdress {Madewell}: Denim is all the rage this season so be sure to add this easy to style dress to your list of spring essentials. This is the perfect fuss-free solution for every body type. Cinch your waist with a woven belt to define your curves.  Add a cute pair of leggings for a different spin.

2.} Tropical Stripe Burnout T {Gap}: Although prints are personal, all things tropical are making headlines this season. Channel your inner Tommy Bahama and look sheik.

3.} Vince Camuto Lorin Drawstring Tote {Nordstrom}: A bucket style handbag is a smart addition to your everyday list of wardrobe essentials. While on trend, this classic shape will hold the test of time given its neutral color and practical design.

4.} Lace up Wedges {Tommy Hilfiger}: Comfy. Affordable. Need. These three words subtly suggests you CAN and should buy these shoes. Espadrilles are back baby and look sophisticated even with a pair of casual shorts or dressed up with a maxi skirt.

5.} Faded Gingham Shirt {J Crew}: Piggy backing on the buffalo plaid of last season, the smaller checked gingham alternative emerges as a must have. For both men and women alike, finally a wearable trend for everyone.

Hope these spring trends we love inspire you. What are you digging? Join the conversation and give us your favorites.
