Fall Essentials

Now that we are back in school and Summer seems like forever ago, it is time to start taking inventory of our Fall wardrobes to see what needs to be purchased for this year! When making bigger purchases for a season I like to buy more classic pieces that I know will last a long time and not go out of style. Fall in New England is absolutely beautiful, and the crisp air allows for lots of cute layering pieces and it is not horribly cold like our brutal winters. Although it is still pretty hot here I am looking forward to pulling out these pieces and putting them to good use!

Quilted Jacket// I have this navy jacket from C. Wonder and it is the perfect weight for fall. I love the corduroy elbow patches and collar and the pop of orange when you cuff the sleeves. This jacket is timeless and goes with everything! 

Simple Sweater// A basic sweater is perfect to pair with jeans and completes a layered look. This J. Crew Factory elbow patch sweater is the softest thing and so comfortable! 

Riding Boots// If you are going to make one investment for the fall I would suggest getting a nice pair of riding boots. I have the Dolce Vita Lujan Riding Boot and Julinna has the Frye Melissa Button Boot! 

Black Flats// A black flat is the perfect shoe for that transition time in between sandals and riding boots. I am really considering splurging on the Tory Burch black and gold Reva flats, they are so chic and match almost anything. 

Plaid Shirt// I might consider myself a plaid addict. It is a great pattern because it incorporates so many different colors, so you can really wear it with so many different things.  

Puffer Vests// I have three vests, the warm bisque and herringbone from J. Crew Factory and a cobalt blue one from J. Crew. Last year I wore a vest at least twice a week in the Fall and Winter, they are so cute for layering and they keep your warm. I highly suggest purchasing one before they sell out! Also, if you want the look for less, check out Old Navy they have some really cute ones for a fraction of the price!

Jeans// I am fairly particular about my jeans and the way they fit, so if I find a pair I love I am definitely willing to splurge. The 7 for all mankind "slim cigarette" is one of my favorite styles and I also like majority of Joe's Jeans. 

Fun Dress// A cute shift dress is my final Fall necessity. Recently, I have seen a ton of cute kids dresses at Crewcuts that I can actually fit into, which is a plus! I love this orange dress with the zipper detailing and a good long sleeve striped dress is always a favorite of mine! 

What are you favorite things for Fall?



  1. That Crewcuts dress is absolutely adorable! I'm going to have to try it on this weekend... Hopefully I'm not too hippy for it. Great picks, dear!
