Fall is upon us!!! Okay, technically it’s 2 days away but still. This is my favorite season ever and I want to pack in as many fun fall activities as I can this year. The NC temps are slowly cooling and there’s nothing that gets me more excited than fall fashion. Here are 10 of my must-haves for the season:
1 // Vests
I finally got my hands on this vest and am patiently waiting for cooler temps to bust it out! Vests are everywhere right now (I especially love the fur ones) and are great for providing that extra layer of warmth… and are super cute to boot!
2 // Booties
My obsession keeps growing. I love booties (especially suede ones) because they’re just so easy. You can easily pair them with jeans, dresses, and skirts and you don’t have to worry about stuffing jeans in them (although I still love my riding boots… #shoeaddict).
3 // Coated Denim
I got my first pair of coated skinnies last year and they were seriously the best gift ever. They are black, but instantly add a little something extra to your outfit and look oh so sleek. I think these give you the look of leather leggings, but are way more comfortable and breathable.
4 // Printed Scarves
I confess, most of my scarves are plain and I’m hoping to change that this season. It’s all about mixing prints these days and whether your prefer plaid or houndstooth, a fun scarf can add a pop of color to any outfit.
5 // Quilted Accessories
A quilted texture adds a little bit of class to your wardrobe. Whether it’s a fall jacket or a pair of boots, the quilted look is here to stay. Ps. I would kill for those Tory Burch riding boots… they are seriously perfect!
6 // Leopard Loafers
If you follow @thebloggercloset on IG, you may remember me saying “every girl should own a pair of leopard loafers“… and I mean it! They were one of my favorite purchases last year and I have gotten so much wear out of them- I can pair them with pretty much anything. Plus, we all know leopard is a neutral.
7 // Cozy Cardigans
Oversized sweaters are always in for fall. What’s easier than throwing one of these over a pair of leggings and running out the door? My favorite part is fall staples like this really allow you to be comfortable and look chic at the same time.
8 // Plaid Button-Downs
I just got my first plaid shirt y’all! Yea, I know I’m behind the times. This is a must when you go apple picking or to the state fair… or any fall for that matter. Extra points for flannel!
9 // Lots of Leather
Back and more popular than ever, leather details are everywhere. Whether your sport a dress with leather details like I did here or a classic black leather jacket, you can’t go wrong. I’m hoping to add some more leather pieces to my wardrobe ASAP!
10 // Stripes
The easiest of all the patterns, you can mix stripes with just about anything (even plaid if you’re super brave… but I’ll pass). They look great with statement necklaces or under vests and come in so many variations, it’s hard to choose which one!
I hope y’all have a fabulous Friday! I’m officially back in Raleigh reunited with the roomies! Today I get to go back to school for our end-of-rotation day and see all my classmates that I haven’t seen in a month. After that, it’s off to the airport to catch a plane to NY for Ryan’s sister’s wedding. TGIF 🙂
