Must Have Fall Basics


I am SO excited that next week will be August 1st which means that fall is (hopefully!) just around the corner and I can enjoy my favorite season of the year! I been slowly transitioning my wardrobe for the upcoming season and every year around this time before school starts, I like to clean out the closet for the boys and myself and really get an idea of what will work for the season and to get rid of items we no longer wear or fit. It also helps with back to school shopping and making sure we get pieces that the boys can really some good use from. With the recent Nordstrom anniversary sale and fall releases happening at some of my favorite retail stores, I have purchased some key pieces for fall that I feel could work with anyone. One Fall basic that I will for sure be wearing a lot this fall will be this black and white gingham dress from J. Crew Factory. It's a great fit and will be so cute with booties and then as it gets colder, you could easily layer on a cardigan or a military jacket. 

1. Taupe Booties 2. Distressed Jeans 3. Comfy Cardigan

A good pair of booties is a MUST and I think if you are going to own only one pair then it needs to be a good taupe color bootie because it will basically go with anything. Along with the perfect pair of booties is a pair of nice distressed jeans like the ones I am loving right now from Loft and of course, I can never have too many cardigans and I love this oatmeal color cocoon cardigan from Old Navy. 

1. Classic Black Sweater 2. Neutral Flat 3. Crossbody Purse

I think a good black sweater is a MUST for fall and can be worn so many ways. I found the perfect black sweater this year and it has the cutest ruffle sleeve and it's from Loft. Next up is a good flat and it I tend to learn towards a more neutral color which you will start to sense a team but for me, simple is more my style. I really love these Vince Camuto flats I scored from Nordstrom Rack on sale and I plan to wear them a lot this fall. Another MUST is a cute crossbody purse and I love the style and color of the one I recently got from the Nordstrom anniversary sale. 

1. Black Comfy Cardigan 2. Gray Top 3. Classic Black Blazer

Another few must have fall basics is a good black comfy cardigan and I really like this one from Loft, a cute fun top that can be dressed up or down and this one from Loft is so cute and I adore the back of the shirt and last but not least is a classic black blazer and this one from Old Navy is such a good staple piece. It can easily be worn during the day, at work and then transition it for a night out with a pair of cute skinny jeans and heels. 

Ok, that is the first of many installments of my Must Have Fall Basics and I hope you found it enjoyable and hopefully helpful as you are building your fall wardrobe.
