Classic Fall Staples


Everyone has a favorite look that that they gravitate towards - a specific pairing of pieces that will always make them feel their best.  So today I thought it would be fun to share with you two of mine!  These are somewhat simple combinations, but when you pay attention to special details & select your items carefully, they will appear much more expensive. I'm wearing one casual style (for the weekend) & one sophisticated look (that's work appropriate).  I chose to specifically highlight classic styles that are pieces you can wear over & over again and mix & match with items you already own.  I consider everything I'm wearing in this post to be wardrobe essentials for the season & I'm breaking it all down for you below!

CARDIGAN SWEATER + PLAID SHIRT + TALL BOOTS


I was thrilled when I discovered these over-the-knee boots that are identical to a designer style I've been lusting after for years.  They have a much more reasonable price tag than the $800 high-end version & I can't say enough good things about how comfortable they are!  I found them to run true to size - they stretch to fit & you can tighten the top using the string in back so you won't be pulling them up all day.  

A classic plaid shirt is another fall staple, but it can be surprisingly difficult to find one that has a flattering fit so you don't end up looking like a lumberjack!  The neutral colors & easy draping of this one is perfect - I'll be wearing it under blazers & my favorite knitwear all season long.  This lightweight cardigan is a must-have layering piece for the season - the open front & rich hue give it a more feminine feel + an extra dose of polish.  I also picked up this cable-knit sweater & this cozy poncho.  Right now you can get $10 off your $25 purchase using code GOSHOP34 or get 20% off any order amount or 25% off when you spend $100 or more using code SALE33.


What I'm wearing:
c/o a.n.a Cardigan Sweater (another option here), c/o Arizona Plaid Shirt
c/o Levi's 524 Skinny Jeans, c/o Style Charles Over-the-Knee Boots, c/o SWG Saddle Bag

TRENCH COAT + FEMININE BLOUSE + PENCIL SKIRT

We all know that a trench is a timeless coat every woman needs in her closet - I love the luxe feel of this faux suede version, which also comes in burgundy.   I decided to create a more sophisticated look by pairing it with this gorgeous lace-neck blouse & a sleek faux-leather pencil skirt.  I'm loving all the soft flowy blouses this season - you can wear them with jeans, skirts or faux leather pants for a little edge. Other pretty options to try are this lace-sleeve top & this bow-tie blouse.
