Five Pre-Fall Items to Buy Now

It’s hard to believe that fall is just around the corner! While I’ve enjoyed summer and all that comes along with it, I am VERY ready for fall! Even though we still have quite a bit of warm weather ahead of us, I’ve pretty much stopped buying summer items and I’m gearing up my closet for fall. Today, I wanted to share five pre-fall items that you need in your closet this season! These are items that you will get a lot of wear out of into the fall and even winter!  P.S. The outfit I’m sharing in this post is from last year- but every single item is in stock again this year! YAY!

FIVE PRE-FALL ITEMS TO BUY NOW

When it comes time to prepping for fall, there are a few things I like to make sure I have in my closet so that when the cool weather hits, I’m prepared for it! Each season I take an inventory of the items I have in my closet and figure out what I need. I like to write out a list of those items so that when I’m out and about or perusing online I can scope them out. I tend to gravitate towards more essential items versus trendy items- but it helps me get more wear out of each item in my closet.

JACKETS | I like to have a variety of jackets for the cooler weather. A few of my favorites include a denim jacket, a utility jacket, a chic blazer, and a moto jacket! Each of these are different, but ones that I get plenty of wear out of throughout fall.

BASIC TOPS | There’s nothing better than a collection of good basics. From button downs, striped tops, to little white tees, make sure you have your closet stocked with the basics! DENIM | I tend to grab denim in the summer during sales, like the Nordstrom sale, so that I can have it once I need it! I always try on my denim from previous seasons to see if they still fit & to make sure each pair is still in good condition. I like to have a pair of dark wash denim, cropped denim, distressed denim, and a pair or two of boyfriend jeans.

FLATS | Fall is my favorite partially for the shoes ha! I love all the chic flats that come out in anticipation of the cool weather! I like to have a few basic pairs of flats (my favorites are Sam Edelman Felicia flats) and a pair of more trendy flats, like slides or mules!

BOOTIES | Booties can be pretty underrated, in my opinion. They’re not only for fall! They can be worn with shorts and dresses right now & with denim into the fall. There are always SO many great booties at various price points.

 

I would love to know what your must-have items are for fall!
