Favorite Fall ’15 Fashions
Fall is one of my favorite seasons for fashion (and alliteration apparently). The temperatures are just cool enough to add an extra layer or two without bulking up… and those topper pieces make all the difference! Plus, scarves. And boots! Flip-flops are comfy and all, but nothing sharpens an outfit like a classic pair of boots or a cute pair of patterned flats. Here are a few items that I’ll be adding to my wardrobe for the fall, and I’m sure they’ll stay in the closet for years to come! There’s definitely sustainability to items like shoes and outerwear that will carry you through multiple seasons and changing fashions.
Ankle Boots / Booties
I just purchased these babies on Amazon, and I am in love! They are super comfortable and a lower heel makes for easy all-day wear, even when I’m on my feet a lot. They look great with scrunched or cuffed skinny jeans, as well as boot-cut jeans. Basically the perfect bootie! I’ve been looking for some to replace a super cute pair I bought at the Nine West Outlet about 4 years ago, but didn’t have any luck with that particular style (almond toe and a dip at the ankle which was flattering to my short legs… the closest I could find were these, but they seem to be out of stock everywhere). So I tried a different style, and they definitely work. Plus, these Nicole boots have a zipper on the side (which the others did not), so they’re much easier to slip on.
I’ve been looking for a new cargo jacket for a while, and I finally found this one by Love Tree at one of my new favorite places to shop Refined Threads Boutique — a clothing store on wheels! Owner/stylist and the brains behind this cool concept, Kristin Bontrager, stocks her mobile boutique with unique seasonal items in all different brands, styles, and sizes. She can even host a clothing party at your own home! I love her sense of style and know I will always find something to add to my closet in her magical fashion truck!
Classic Wrap Dress
A piece like this is always going to be versatile in your wardrobe — perfect for cooler days, but not too heavy, and layers well with just about any blouse, tank or tee. I like the ones with a tie for some waist-defining action, and a removable tie is even better if you feel like leaving it open. I haven’t bought a new one yet because I’m still looking for just the right style/color, but I’ll let you know when I find one I love!
