Survival Guide To Fall Fashion

Survival Guide To Fall Fashion

I wanted to share a post on everything that you need to get you through the fall season whether it be the top trends or just some really good staple pieces! There are so many amazing pieces out right now that I needed to share! I seriously think I need every single piece on this list! While realistically, that isn’t possible because hellloooo is money no object? I wish that was the case. But really, at least consider one of these pieces! I’ve got you covered from head to toe, literally.

Outerwear:

_103283853.jpg
Sam Edelman Short Faux Fur Jacket | $200

This might be one of my favorite jackets that I’ve seen this season! I love the white and black together but it’s a different take on this style jacket.

_12094457.jpg
BLNKNYC Morning Suede Moto Jacket |$188

I got this jacket last season and I don’t regret it! It’s such an easy piece to layer with and getting it in a neutral color like this makes it easy to wear with black or brown.

Topshop Mary Kate Trench Coat |$110
_102741856
Topshop Ava Double Breasted Jacket | $44.99

I love layering with a blazer because it totally changes an outfit! Plus, who doesn’t love pink…

_103422755
Topshop Lily Knit Back Midi Coat | $125

Everybody needs a coat like this. I’ll be getting this one!

Knits:

_103407656.jpg
Wildfox Palmetto Frayed Sweater | $168

Perfect for wearing with a pair of jeans!

_103519861.jpg
Moon River Fringed Sweater | $69

This is a different take on a sweater and I love it! This also comes in black if that’s more your style!

_103717454.jpg
Topshop Super Crop Sweater | $55

I love that this sweater is cropped because it gives you the tucked in look without the bulkiness of actually tucking in a thick knit.

Free People Menace Solid Tunic Sweater | $128
_103841680.jpg
Free People Knit Tunic | $148

A super cozy turtleneck is a staple in my fall/winter wardrobe! They’re perfect for everyday wear but you can totally dress it up or down depending on the situation. For class I’ll wear these with leggings and my vans but you can also pair it with black jeans, a coat that I showed above this and some booties!

Tops:

_103363045.jpg
Free People That Classic Girl Bodysuit | $48

Again, turtlenecks! I swear I’m a grandma because I like them but they’re so easy. I love that this one is a bodysuit because that means you won’t have to worry about tucking it in constantly and it will stay down! Since this is fitted, it’s perfect for layering!

_103188393.jpg
1.STATE Twist Front One-Shoulder Top |$49

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this top! It comes in a few different colors but I think this white color is really nice! I also love the red version. I would pair this with again, black jeans and a pair of heels for an early fall going out outfit!

_103553267.jpg
Topshop Animal Print Pajama Shirt | $68

Okay, leopard print is so in this season and I need this top. It’s perfect for work but I think you could really have fun with this top and wear it for going out! If I was to wear it out, I’d unbutton it a little more, roll up the sleeves and layer necklaces with it!

_103401946.jpg
Free People Square Eyes Bodysuit | $58

Again, anther basic bodysuit that’s great for layering but I love the square neckline!

Bottoms:

_103705672.jpg
ASTR The Label Dionne Skirt | $98
_103537309.jpg
BLNKNYC Double Buckle Suede Skirt |$98
_102847801.jpg
Free People High Waist Skinny Jeans | $78

I swear by black denim. The ones I wear basically all the time are by Topshop but these are the most similar pair I can find! Plus, I think they’re cheaper 😉

_103422009.jpg
Reformation Julia High Waist Cigarette Jeans | $128

We’ve seen these jeans for a couple of seasons now and I don’t think they’re going anywhere. A straight leg style like this makes it super easy to wear with booties, sandals, heels or a cute pair of tennis shoes. They’re comfortable enough for the day time but can transition to a night time pant as well!

Shoes:

_103644167.jpg
Kristin Cavallari Satine Bootie | $174.95

White booties have been in since last year and I don’t see them going out of style this season! I really like the zipper down the front for a different look than your standard bootie. But, I really love the wood heel with this boot! I typically see black heels on a white bootie but I love this look.

_103785890.jpg
Marc Fisher LTD Alva Bootie | $199

I think these are a pair of boots that will never go out of style. These boots are something you could honestly wear year round. During the spring and summer they’d look super cute with dresses and shorts but during the fall and winter these will look good with jeans or a black denim. I don’t think you can go wrong with this color but they do have so many other color options if these aren’t up your alley!

TS32M04PNAT_M_1.jpg
Marcel Snake Effect Ankle Boots | $180

Um, you need these. You’re welcome.

TS32M03PBLK_M_1.jpg
Mason Crocodile Effect Chelsea Boots | $160

Again, another bootie that you need! I love that it’s a new look to the chelsea boot!

TS32M09PTAN_M_1.jpg
Morty Angled Heel Boots | $130

A good everyday bootie! This color also makes it easy to wear with black or brown since both are on this boot!

Accessories:

_103440195.jpg
Brixton Audrey Wool Felt Beret | $48

Berets were in last fall/winter and they’re back! I didn’t jump on the trend last year but I will this season! Lol, last winter I was out and found a red beret so I totally grabbed it and it’s now mine. I also look like the pillsbury dough boy in it so I need to work on that.

46878633_011_a.jpg
Leonard Braided Band Hat | $98

I didn’t know I was a hat person until I tried this style! There are a thousand different versions out there but I personally really like this one! Lack of Colour also makes some really awesome ones. For me, it’s key that the brim isn’t flimsy so that it stays flat like this. I find that when the brim is flimsy, it looks weird on me.

TS24R01PRED_M_2.jpg
Panther Cross Body Bag | $48

This reminds me of the prada bags but for like 1,000th of the cost.

Topshop Taylor Crossbody Bag | $55

I think that this is such a fun statement bag! If you had on an all black or white outfit, this would totally pull it all together! A statement bag like this can bring together a really simple outfit and make it look like you tried harder than you did.

Easy Summer Dress.

So….what’s the point in wearing a dress if you can’t twirl around in it?! This quickly became one of my favorite things over the weekend. Since realizing that, I’ve missed out on so many twirl-able dresses. It was fun and definitely made the dress more breezy in the 110-degree weather we were having.

I picked up this dress in March/April planning on wearing it to my sorority formal but decided against it because it is somewhat casual. Although I got it a few months ago, I have been seeing dupes everywhere now!!

What I really love is the blue embroidery against the white. I like the blue and white because 1) it makes me look more tan and 2) this blue is such a pretty color.  I also really like this dress because it’s so easy to wear! You can throw it on and you don’t have to worry about accessories because the embroidery speaks for itself.

It’s not super light weight which can make it difficult to wear in the 100+ Saint Louis weather BUT if you live where it’s cooler, then it would be perfect! This dress can easily be worn in the fall as well with some brown booties. I think the long sleeves help with that aspect.

Target has a similar dress right now for $29.99. It comes in a white/red version as well as a black/white version!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

Hi!! Today I’m sharing my top Nordstrom Anniversary sale picks for you all! I looked through every single page (46 to be exact) to make sure I was picking items I would actually buy for myself and not just picking items to fill a page up. Anyways, I hope you enjoy!

CaptureTopshop Moon Suede Biker Jacket / Hinge Tie Front Pullover / Chelsea28 Bell Sleeve Sweater / Sub_Urban Riot ‘Work Hard’ Tee / Topshop Studded Angel Boots / Tory Burch Mini Frida Wallet

I reallllly like this biker jacket by Topshop! I had one similar from Urban Outfitters but ended up returning it because I got the wrong size. I never got around to getting the right size or another jacket like it but if I did, I’d get this one! I really love the color because you can wear it with black, white, grey, or normal jeans.

I also really like the boots by Topshop because it’s a different approach on a Chelsea boot. The ankle looks a bit more fitted and taller which is nice! I have skinny ankles that I can thank my Great Grandma, GG, for. Because of that, it’s hard to find pants or shoes that are tight enough around my ankle. I haven’t tried these on but I think they’d look really nice paired with the biker jacket!

For the Tory Burch Wallet, I LOVE mine and I’m so glad I bought it. I think a wallet is one of those things that you use everyday, multiple times a day so it’s an investment piece. I’d much rather bite the bullet, pay the price now to have a wallet that will last me a bit than having to buy a $10 wallet from target frequently.

Levis Faux Shearling Bomber Jacket / Women’s B.P Tie Front Blouse / The Laundry Room ‘And Then Brunch’ Sweatshirt / Free People Beach Haven TeeHalogen Corbin Slide LoaferTopshop Buckle Cuff Stripe Sweater

Ok..this bomber jacket. I love. If you haven’t seen the True Grit jackets, it’s almost what it reminds me of but the dressier version. Since it’s a bomber, you can definitely dress it up with jeans, but you can also dress it down with leggings! I really love this.

The Free People top is a basic everyday shirt. I’d definitely wear this when going to class with leggings but you can also wear it with jeans if you’re going to dinner with friends! I think I “need” it.

The SHOOOOESSS. They come in silver and they’re perfect. I’m so obsessed with these. The slide loafer is so in right now but this is a different take on them!! I’ve seen a lot of Gucci want to be’s but these Halogen slide loafers in sliver are so so cute.

Lastly, my favorite, Topshop. This sweater is super cute!! I’m a sucker for stripes and this is definitely one of those pieces that I’d buy. I like that it has the buckles on the arm because it takes it from your basic black and white sweater and gives it something more.
