style: fall must haves

fall must haves

With summer coming to an end, I’ve been taking my Fall clothes out of hiding and making room for new items.

Every season I find myself in the same predicament, my clothes from the previous year tend to pull a disappearing act. It always seems as though I have less clothes than I did the year before; the only way to remedy the mysterious dissipation of said clothes is to purchase more ;)

As much as I enjoy shopping, what I enjoy most is shopping smart. I always purchase items that can be “recycled”, meaning paired with various items in my closet or with each other.

If you’re not sure how to achieve that, worry not, I’ve got you covered. I created a chart with some of my Fall must haves to display how I plan on using the garments pictured above. Doing so will allow you to get more bang for your buck, hence shopping smart!

Below are some of my favorite combinations:

1, 8, 4 and 5 for running errands.

2, 5, 3 and 6 for lunch with the girls.

8, 7, 5 and 3 for a fun day out with Neriah. As you can see the possibilities are endless, so before you head out shopping for your Fall wardrobe make sure you’ve got a plan in mind.

For details on the items listed above see below.

1. Textured weave parka – 2. Short jersey dress – 3. Wool hat 4.Sweatpants 5.Converse 6. Bucket Bag 7.Skinny high jeans 8.Oversized jersey top
