Autumn Essentials

In my closet there are a few pieces that I just can’t help but return to season after season, year after year.  Today I’m sharing a few of my Fall staples that will remain classic, and versatile.

Tweed Skirt: This skirt is a J.Crew 2010 purchase and one of my absolute favorites. It looks great with cable knit sweaters, dressy blouses, turtlenecks — pretty much everything. I shared a few similar styles on the scroll bar below but I love, love this skirt for the very same reason. It’s easy to wear and can be mixed and matched to create a range of looks. 

Hunter Boots: My go to shoe for outdoor adventures, rainy days, or snowy weather, Hunter Boots look great with everything. I love the Packable Tour Boots best as they are light-weight and easy to pack for weekend getaways. 

Ruffled Blouse: This Goodnight Macaroon lace ruffled blouse is so feminine and pretty. I just love the lace details and ruffled collar. My favorite way to wear it is to dress it down with jeans or a Barbour jacket for a more casual look. 

Wool Trench Coat: I have a few renditions of the classic wool trench, but I always resort to this piece (also love this and this) . It makes every outfit appear effortlessly classic, and sophisticated. It’s not too heavy and perfect for brisk fall days when only a little extra warmth is needed.

Riding Boots: My fall wardrobe would not be complete without a pair of Tory Burch riding boots. They scream fall to me and are a reminder of all the wonderful traditions that accompany the season. I love the way they look with plaid shirts, vests, dresses, jeans, and oversized sweaters. 

Black Mini Skirt: This piece is a 2012 purchase from Topshop (similar). I love the fit and pleated look. It’s the perfect length to wear with heels, flats, or even knee boots. 

Necklace: I don’t wear statement necklaces very often but every once in a while the right necklace can really switch up an otherwise basic outfit. I purchased this vintage piece from a local antique store and it’s one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. I love the way a little glimmer can change a whole look.

    about to do a closet purge and will be keeping your style ideas in mind. But-it is still warm in the midwest-hard to even think about layers, and flannel and tweed and all those cosy things.

    Best Africa Wazifa to Get Your Husband Love and Attention Back
    My ex and me were together for a years and 4 months, we were very happy to be husband and wife, last month we went to Los Angeles and stayed with his family, after we got back he started acting distant, then he started hanging out with a girl, and kept sneaking off to go hangout with her, so i got upset, i could not endure, i tried to do everything to please him but it got worst, one day he left the house and never came back, i tried reaching him but no way i could reach him, because of the heart break he has put me into, i went into search of a real spell caster but I was scammed several times, but I never relented in my search because I want a happy life with my boyfriend, when i saw testimony about spell caster Dr Joy on the internet, so i contacted him and to my greatest surprise ((( restored my relationship, my boyfriend came back to me, i took him back and I am now settled with him by the magic power of Dr Joy spell Thanks Julie Derby From Usa Arizona

    It is something really amazing I found .

    You both look so classy and I am in love with your leather shoes.

    Just one word to describe you "WOW"!

    And I must say that always Choose clothes that are colorful as well as those that reflect the girl's personality.

    In addition to the season, the size, and the color, you need to have in mind the cost price. The evolution of clothes has led to expensive outfits. The cost is influenced by the trends as well as fashion.
    There are so many beautiful dresses of women's that are you can found on clothing store. Or you can also buy them online.

    A big thanks to you buddy for this share.

    Keep doing Good work.

    Blessings to you 🙂
