I love feeling like a little French girl with my basket bag and chic lace blouse even though in reality, I’m so from New Jersey. No, not Jersey Shore-like, but a-cheeseburger-preferred-over-a-croissant-and-baguette-like. I’m just glad I get to express another side of me through my clothing (not exactly through what I eat haha!).

I scored this adorable vintage blouse at the thrift shop years ago and I just recently put it to work after it’s been sitting in my closet forever. Does that happen to you guys, too? Not realizing you love a piece of clothing so much after it’s been sitting in the back of your closet for a few years? #Storyofmylife.

fall fashion essentials

September 5th, 2017 | 1 Comment

Time to buy those layers and sweaters and scarves and….pumpkin spice coffee. Although there is an abundance of fall ’17 trends, you can never go wrong with a smaller fall wardrobe this year with these key fashion essentials for the unpredictable season.

01. Layering Pieces

Don’t put away those summer camisoles and tanks…keep them for layering! Put it over a t-shirt and under a cardigan.

02. Long Sleeve Blouse

A beautiful long sleeve blouse would look awesome tucked into some of your favorite jeans.

03. Midi Skirt

How can you not?! A midi skirt is the perfect length for this kind of weather, and a bonus tip: wear it with some tall boots to give a vintage vibe.

04. Mini Skirt

Don’t pack away these babies either! A mini skirt and thigh high boots are probably one of my most worn combinations ever.

05. Hats & Beanies

A fedora if you’re feeling fancy and chic. A beanie if you’re feeling cool and casual.

06. Scarves

A scarf adds the extra mile in your outfits. Put it in your hair, around your neck, or even around your bag. I’ll be making a video and a blog post on how to style scarves for the fall very soon!

07. Cardigans

So you’re in class or at the office and you’re cold af wearing your camisole. Put on a cardigan and it’s a dream!

08. Sweaters

I love to wear sweaters with jeans and skirts, don’t get me wrong. But there is nothing better than chilling at home in a big comfy chunky sweater, who agrees? I can’t be the only one!

09. Thigh high boots

I swear this will be the only boot you need for fall. Wear them with a mini dress or skirt, wear them over skinny jeans, wear them with nothing else (lol just kidding).

10. Flats

When it’s a little bit of a warmer day outside and I don’t feel like sweating in my boots, I love to just slip on a simple flat. Plus, I think simple flats with jeans or leggings look super feminine and effortless.

11. Leather jacket

You know I had to bring this one up! This is just the epitome for fall. It’s what we all wait for all year ’round.

12. Denim jacket

When I’m going for a super casual day-time look, I love to throw a denim jacket on. I’m especially digging oversized denim jackets — to make an outfit less feminine and more grunge-y.

13. Trench coat

Fall is rainy, fall is sunny, but a trench coat will never fail to help you survive in any weather condition.

♪ listening to Nirvana – My Girl (Where Did You Sleep Last Night?) ♪

I’m enjoying these final moments of hot hot 80 degree summer weather before the f word rolls in…you know–fall. I bought the famous AA white tennis skirt but I really didn’t know how to style it that matched my personal style. But I finally found this old super pale pink cami and thought it looked ultra feminine. I love it and I feel like a ballerina in it for some reason? Maybe it’s the bun?

As we say goodbye to summer and hello to fall, here is my playlist and fave music picks for the upcoming season…I hope you have Spotify 🙂
