fall essentials

As I've said many, many times, fall is my absolute favorite season. When the temperatures start cooling down and the leaves begin changing, I know fall has officially arrived and my fall essentials will be making appearances more often! 

In the fall I tend to gravitate more towards basic pieces, such as knit sweaters, denim, and button downs. Often times that leaves the outfit lacking a little something...so that's when I wear a pair of statement earrings to bring a little life to the outfit. 

I kind of have a thing for handbags (especially this one from GiGi New York). Having a classic handbag in a neutral color that can go with all of your fall outfits is essential. 

The blanket scarf has totally taken off and has already become one of the biggest style accessories this fall! Last year Zara had the best blanket scarfs (but I missed out on them). Luckily they came out with even more this year and everyone followed suit. Even Target has blanket scarves now! I'm excited for the cooler weather to break out mine.

Booties are my absolute go-to shoe in the fall. They go with everything from dresses to denim. I have had my eye on these Sam Edelman booties for the longest time (not kidding) and I'm thinking I may need to make the purchase, especially since I wear booties so often.

Sneakers are one of those trends that I never thought would be a "trend," but it's totally taken the fashion world by storm. I see celebs on Instagram and in magazines wearing sneakers all the time to make a normal outfit a little more sporty chic! I think these are so so so cute. Personally, I love the trend...and so do my feet! It's a nice break from heels.

When I think of fall I instantly think of plaid. Something about the pattern is just so "fall" to me! Not only do I love the pattern on shirts, but it totally works on dresses, pants, and even shoes. In my mind,  you can't go wrong in plaid.

Cozy knits are also one of my go-to pieces in the cooler fall months. When I am cold I want to be warm and comfortable, don't we all? Chunky knits are not only on-trend they are weather appropriate and cute!

Fall Pastels

I used to think that pastels could only be worn in the spring and summer months. After reading up on the September fashion magazines and attending the Lookbook Live Tour event my mind totally changed. Pastels are on-trend this fall, so I decided to give it a try! Another thing that is on trend this fall? Statement pieces, like these earrings and necklace from BaubleBar. They both complement each other so well! Loved the combination of pastels and these statement pieces.
