Fall Style Checklist!
Fall is only a couple of months away, and since it’s my ALL time favorite season, I couldn’t resist getting a head start on my fall content. Summer is cool and all, but I’m ready for cozy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes and cooler weather! Since we do still have a couple of months to go, I figured now would be a perfect time to give you a shopping checklist filled with all of the important fall basics! Pretty much every single one of my fall outfits consists of some combination of the above, so they’re such good pieces to have in your closet, because they’re all so versatile and can be styled in SO many different ways!
I’m actually currently working on a blog post about all the different ways to style a striped turtleneck because there are seriously so many options! I love them under sweaters and cardigans, but they’re also cute alone with a scarf or fun long necklace! Definitely a great versatile piece to have in your closet!
I have had my utility jacket for YEARS (like literally since high school!) and it’s always one of the first pieces I pull out every fall! They’re nice and lightweight, so they are the perfect fall transition piece! Throw it over a cute cami with some distressed denim and a pair of booties and you look pumpkin patch ready without dying of heatstroke in the still 75 degree late September weather!
Y’all know how much I LOVE my comfy pieces, so it probably isn’t a surprise to you that my sherpa pullover is one of my all time favorite pieces! I love it alone with leggings, or layered underneath a vest or jacket with a nice pair of jeans for a more dressed up casual look!
Chambray shirt dresses are a great fall staple and an amazing transition piece! You can dress them up or down depending on the look you’re going for, and can wear them alone while it’s still warm out or layered (hello, utility jacket, cozy cardigan or oversized scarf!) when it starts to get a bit colder! So many ways to wear them!
Short booties are my favorite for early fall, and they make your legs look so long, especially if they have a bit of a heel to them! They’re a great way to dress up any outfit with jeans, and I love wearing them with leggings with a cute pair of socks peeking out of the top for a cute, cozy fall look!
The right pair of rain boots can brighten up any rainy day! Over the years I have accumulated quite a few pairs of rain boots, and I honestly look forward to rainy days because I love any excuse to pull them out! I have three tall pairs that I love for casual outfits, and then two pairs of rain booties that are great for dressing up! If you want to start with just one pair, you can’t go wrong with a simple pair of black rain boots, short OR tall!
So, I’m kind of a tote hoarder. I seriously can never have enough of them! Maybe it’s because I carry around way more stuff than I need, but I love them! I love them so much that I actually have and can personally vouch for more than one of these bags (I used to carry all of my school books and laptop in number 3 and it’s still in almost perfect condition 5 years later! Talk about a solid bag!). I also plan on buying number 1 for the fall, because it’s so cute!
Let’s be real. Fall would not be fall without oversized sweaters! They’re literally my favorite thing about fall, because you can throw it on with leggings and boots and look like you actually tried, when let’s be real, you didn’t. Seriously the best piece of clothing there is.
Cardigans are my favorite not just for fall, but all year round! They’re perfect for transitional weather because you can throw it on over a lighter dress or tank for a cute cozy look without getting too warm, and they’re my favorite thing to lounge around at home in!
A hat is the best (and easiest) way to up-level any outfit and make yourself look instantly put together and fashionable!
