🍂I love seasons. I love the transition between them. How they gradually (or not) breathe a different feeling into the atmosphere. Of all season transitions, my favorite is the one between summer and fall. The leaves are changing colors. There is so much excitement in the air. The holidays are nearing. The weather is cooling. Our favorite fall outfits are on the horizon. Jeans. Cardigans. Hoodies. Boots. Jackets. Scarves. I love them all.🍂
🍂When we think of fall, we think of our kids going back to school, Friday night football games, bonfires with smores, and all things pumpkin. And truth be told- I think about not having to shave my legs as often (girl win)! What can I say?!? I literally suffer through summer just so I can make it to autumn! 🍂
🍂I wanted to write this post to discuss 5 items I believe you HAVE to have in your fall wardrobe. These are staples. No woman should go without them. I can not think about fall style and these items NOT come to mind. I am giddy just thinking about pulling these items out of my closet! So without further ado- let’s get stylin’!!!!!!!🍂
Jeans. These are my numero uno. My all time love. My go to. Yes I am a true leggings lover- but a good fitting pair of jeans can make me feel like a vixen. Unstoppable. Watch out world- here I come kinda feeling! I LOVE me some distressed skinny jeans! So many shoe options for dressing up or down. Put on a sexy pair of heels for date night, or a cute slip-on sneaker for those beloved target runs. Oh Target how we love you.
My last tip before we get into viewing my faves is that you invest in a quality pair of jeans. I know- those $30 jeans will do- I have plenty. But will they make you feel like a million bucks? Probably not. I’m telling you- it is SO worth the investment! One pair. Just one pair of high quality jeans. You will not regret it!
Ok let’s get to it!!!!! Get excited y’all! Cover up those hairy legs!

Cardigans. I almost had to list this one first because I LOVE THEM. They are so versatile and cozy. There is nothing better than getting bundled up in a soft, warm cardigan. Throw one over a basic tee with leggings and you have a perfect errand running outfit. Put one on with a pair of jeans, ankle booties, and a statement necklace and ta-da; perfect dinner/movie date night ensemble. I was looking through my Pinterest boards for inspiration and I realized that almost ALL of my pins were cardigan related! I’m pretty sure I need help.
Right now I am OBSESSED with long cardigans. Thin. Chunky. Patterned. Solid. I just can’t get enough. I think they emit a chic style that can’t be beat. Comfortable and chic? Sign. Me. Up. I had trouble finding my favorites, so I am only showing my VERY VERY favorite cardigans. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Jackets. Leather, faux leather, bomber, anorak, moto, jean; they can truly ELEVATE any outfit. Throw on a leather jacket with a pair of black skinnies and a bright colored pair of heels and you will feel unstoppable. Or better yet- throw in a leopard print heel! Use an olive colored anorak jacket with a knit striped dress paired with an over the knee boot to get that casual outing outfit. Wear a blush colored bomber jacket with a basic tee and leggings to ramp up your
errand running, weekend go-to gear.
I never used to wear jackets. Confession- I actually didn’t own a “stylish” jacket until last year! It amazed me how a jacket could take an outfit from boring to amazing. I actually looked like I had my “stuff” together! Trust me- don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it! Check out my favorite jackets- I hope they inspire you to elevate, elevate, elevate!

Scarves. A must as the weather becomes cooler. They can add a touch of warmth on a cool night. A fun accessory that adds style to your otherwise basic outfit. Just like a jacket, they literally “wake up” an outfit. Plain solid knit dress? Try a leopard print scarf to add some flair. Basic crewneck sweater? Add a plaid scarf for a polished fall outfit. Scarves can be simple. They can be oversized. The options are limitless! And let’s be honest here- we like choices! Lots and lots of choices!

Boots. Booties, riding, over the knee. They all add their own flair to an outfit. They can make you feel sexy. They can be comfortable. Such a versatile staple to add to your fall wardrobe. Pair an over the knee boot with a cute dress/ cardigan pairing; don’t forget to add tights if cooler weather draws you away from dresses. Get a classic pair of riding boots to wear with skinny jeans, a basic tee and a chunky knit scarf. It is a perfect outfit to wear when visiting those wonderful pumpkin patches.
Here goes another confession- I DID NOT own a pair of booties until last fall. I didn’t understand them. Then one day I found myself aimlessly wandering through Target as we all don’t get to do often enough, and grabbed a pair of tan ankle booties. Life. Changing. Seriously y’all- how did I live without ankle booties?!?!?
These boots will get your fall wardrobe ready for all things pumpkin spice- because lets be honest- that’s why we all love fall so much! 🎃☕️🎃
