Between me and you, I try to keep the #basicgirl thing under wraps. I like to think I often march to my own beat, but when it comes to Fall (and Christmas), I’m both hands up….#BASIC! For me, there’s no mood changer greater than opening the back door one morning to finally feel that chill in the air. Pumpkins, warm cups of perfection, and Fall candles are my JAM! Plus, that feeling that Christmas is just around the corner is an absolute BONUS. But most importantly, it’s time to rediscover the other side of the closet. I swear I can hear hymns the first time I flip through those oh so lonely jackets that have been hanging there just waiting to be worn! Without fail, year after year, I’m surprised by those awesome pieces that I totally forgot I had!
At the beginning of the season, I’m normally super inspired! I start picking out outfits the night before and using my creativity to mix different pieces. This leaves me feeling really good about myself and like all of those years of shopping really paid off! (Cue husband's eye roll.) Let’s be honest though, the new eventually wears off and somedays, you just need that go-to uniform. True story, when we were shooting this week, I put on this very outfit (below) and thought, “I want to wear this every single day”. It was easy, chic and comfortable…check, check, check! That inspired to me to share my four Fall essentials with all of you. For me, it's the recipe for the perfect outfit!
If I could wear a sweater 365 days out of the year and not have a heat stroke, I probably would. So, the fact that trendy sweaters are such a craze right now literally makes my year! Shag, Cold Shoulder, Off the Shoulder, Ruffle Sleeves, even One Shoulder…you name it, it’s out there. Invest in some chic, easy sweaters, and you may shave a few minutes off your morning closet ponder.
There’s truly nothing that makes me feel instantly cool like stepping into a pair of coated or leather skinnies. Whether it be jeans, coated denim or a leather legging, I guarantee you'll wear a black skinny more times than you can count! Invest in one or ALL of these and you'll thank yourself. Of course, ALL can be found at Golden Hanger. : )
Versatile Black Booties
So as you can imagine, like most women, I have a plethora of shoes. You name it, I can probably crawl to the back of my closet, dig around a bit, and find it. ; ) However, that perfect black bootie, the one that you can dress up or down, is essential and surprisingly hard to find! That gem of a shoe that you could wear to an important meeting followed by a hot date seems like an urban myth! Think somewhere between over the knee and basic casual bootie. Enter, half calf, snake embossed, suede bootie. They’re also insanely comfy!
The Statement Piece
Okay, okay, I am fully aware that not all of you would wear a piece of burgundy fur draped over your shoulder. Truthfully, on a daily basis, neither would I (but isn’t it pretty??). I am however, a firm believer in the fact that wearing 3 pieces just makes an outfit look more polished and complete. Invest in a practical jacket, fun vest, or chunky scarf (or all three) and you're good to go, girl!
