Favorite Fall Staples

Fall is my favorite season-- you may here me say that about 800 more times in the future, so I'll be discussing it a lot prepared.
I've rounded up my favorite Fall staples, because these are my go to items year after year for the season- no matter what the current trends. It's fun to add in those frills depending on what is IN that particular year, like mustard and mules in 2017...but these are my every day basics for Fall.

I' ll admit- I haven't shopped at Abercrombie & Fitch since I worked there in college, but when I came across this cozy scarf online I fell in love with the mix of patterns and how soft it looks. It's a great fall staple that you can mix with a lot of outfits.

While we're on the topic of scarves...I definitely consider leopard a neutral and must have in your closet. I mix leopard with hot pink shoes and bold accessories because it's so fun. I own and love this BP leopard scarf. I scooped it up during the Nordstrom sale for an AMAZING deal and it's so cute.

I'm huge on booties and have added quite the bit of TOMS to my closet. Who knew they could be so cute? I picked these booties during the Spring and LOVE that you can wear them for so many seasons because of the peep toe. They are insanely comfortable and such a good buy in several colors.

When people say they don't wear leggings, I don't believe them. How could you not? I mean you look put together but feel like you're in pajamas...these people are totally missing out. My favorite brand of leggings has been HUE due to how well they hold up and the inexpensive price tag. I love these faux leather leggings that can be worn with a mix of different items from you closet you probably already own like a crisp white classic tee or a feminine pink top. 

Cardi's of al shapes and sizes are my JAM. I wish I could wear them year round, and not end up with obnoxious armpit sweating that comes too easily for me. Lindsay turned me on to this Old Navy cardigan and since it fits like a dream and is so soft & cozy I may grab it in another color. I love a good staple you can wear year after year.

Accessories can be difficult since trends change so much. As for me, I always love a classic hoop earring or big and bold ones. But nail polish is an easy go to that helps add to your look and this isn't the first time I mentioned Smith & Cult. It holds up SO well and a standard manicure usually lasts me about a week--can't beat it. Their colors are so unique and the names are awesome which is an added bonus. 

Maybe it's the kid in me, but I just love backpack's. It's the perfect way to be hands free and not worry about straps falling or having a free arm to carry something else with. Gap has a great bag this season and that velvet is giving me ALL the heart eyes!

As the weather cools off, you need the perfect jacket that you can grab from your closet each year and while the trend really took off a few years ago, I think a moto jacket is a classic and cute option. There's SO many good ones out there, and I'm digging this olive color. 

Last, but definitely not least is a a good lip to finish off your look. I love how the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil's from NARS apply and look and have a handful of colors, and think I should add the Chestnut Rose to my makeup bag for sure. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Fall filled weekend enjoying the first weekend of October!
