Fall Favorites

Happy Friday guys! Last night I attended Back to School night with Madelyn in tow (Jack was at soccer practice). It was nice to get to chat a bit with the teachers because when I ask Madelyn how Kindergarten is each day she eagerly tells me every detail….. about her teachers outfit, ha! “Oh, Mom, her skirt was beautiful!” But I’m happy to report that things are going smoothly in other areas of the classroom as well ;)

With each season there are always a handful of pieces that I end up turning to the most frequently. Here’s a little breakdown on what I’ve already been and plan to be wearing in the upcoming weeks…


A classic pair of booties are a must. Knee-highs are great, and I recommend having a pair of those too, but my everyday always revolves around a comfortable pair of booties.

Plaid shirts scream fall to me. I adore the colors of this one and I plan on getting a ton of wear out of it. Worn alone or layered under a jacket or fleece. It’ll be a workhorse for sure.

My skinny jeans aren’t going anywhere, but I’ve been loving the straight leg option that’s gaining popularity. My legs can breath a bit but they still have a beautiful silhouette.

I picked these faux leather leggings up during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and am so glad I did. These things are amazing! I laughed when I pulled them out of the package because I didn’t think they were even going to go over one leg! But sure enough they did and now I can’t wait to wear them…dressed up with heels or down with sneakers and a cozy sweater. (PS they are currently on sale for 20% off here!)

I wanted this fleece last year, but it sold out before I could get it. When I saw it back in stock in the blush I jumped on it!  They offered a sale a few weeks ago and I’m hopeful they will again because I know a number of you were interested in it! It comes in a few other beautiful color options as well.

This tote remains my go-to year round, but fall is always my favorite time to wear it because the cognac pairs so beautifully during this season.

Maybe it’s because I can be lazy with my hair, but I love having a baseball cap on hand to throw on when I wake up with crazy hair (hello short hair problems) and lack the time to wash it!

I haven’t pulled the trigger yet (I’m hoping to catch them on sale) but I love these sneakers. I typically turn to my Converse but I’m looking to step up my sporty look and think these might be the missing link!

I have an almost identical jacket that I purchased earlier this season and I love it. It’s a perfect light layer for the brisk days ahead and it can be thrown on over a dress just as easily as it could work with a t-shirt and jeans.

Any other scarf hoarders out there?? There’s something about a new season and a new scarf…isn’t there?!

I know I had this sweater on my list last week, but guys, I’m telling you, it is the softest, most comfortable thing in my closet. And I want to wear it everyday. Seriously.

Mules now have a solid space in my closet and I don’t see them going anywhere. They are perfect for fall and the ease of slipping them on/off is a huge plus.
