Fall Fashion

’m linking up with Sarah and Emily today to share some of my favorite fall staples and get some ideas for a few new items to purchase this season.

As you’ve probably figured out by now, fall is my season. I swear, my soul just comes alive once there’s a chill in the air and the leaves start to change colors. Give me crisp jeans, cashmere sweaters, and wool socks all day, every day.

Puffer Vests
I own way too many of these but I wear each and every one of them every fall, winter, and spring. I love how they make it so easy to mix and match with different shirts and sweaters to create a new look. This brand is my go-to for these vests!

Jackets
I love a good fall jacket — this is my very favorite one, but a close second is a black trench coat that I purchased in Italy a decade ago.

Denim
I really need to do a post dedicated to denim one of these days because I’m a huge believer in quality denim. I’ve bought my share of cheap (both in price and quality) jeans in my early twenties and it just doesn’t pay — they never fit right, stretch out, and show signs of wear so early on. I’d rather more upfront for a pair of denim that is going to fit perfectly and last for many years verses buying cheap jeans over and over again. Wearing jeans that fit correctly not only make you look your best, but you also feel so much better since things aren’t sagging or needing to be adjusted all of the time. I purchase most of my denim from Nordstrom and J. Crew and my favorite brands / styles are this, this, and any of the toothpick styles.

Sweaters
My favorite places to purchase sweaters are J.Crew (let’s be honest, 80% of my clothes come from there), Banana Republic, and Nordstrom. Sweaters are one of my favorite things to wear because they’re comfy, cozy, and plain old EASY! Throw one on with jeans and a statement necklace and you’re not only warm, but also feeling cute!

Booties
Definitely my go-to shoes come fall! I love the TOMs brand — especially these little cuties.

Socks
These socks are my favorites to layer over leggings / pants on a chilly day at home or to wear under my boots to keep my feet warm on my commutes!
