Hey guys! Welcome back for another installment of Friday Fives! Is the weather getting colder where you live? It has been getting colder for a while in my area and it is making me so excited for fall! Since I’m excited, I’ve been eyeing fall fashion and figuring out ways to still wear my summer favorites before fulling transitioning to fall. I figured this week instead of focusing my Friday Fives on my favorite things from the week, I would focus on….
F A L L E S S E N T I A L S
I’m not saying these are must haves that you absolutely need, but I am pretty sure that any basic girl out there would agree that they are excited about at least one (or all) of my essentials. Throughout this month, I’ll be posting ways to wear these essentials during the month of September so you can be sure to be all fall fashion ready!
So, lets get into it!
Booties can help transition any summer outfit to fall! They are perfect to wear with jeans, shorts, dresses, skirts, anything. For some reason with my booties, I am much more of a brown bootie kind of girl (I do own black booties…I don’t discriminate). These two booties are my favorite because 1. the details and 2. They look like they can be worn in any season, not just in the fall or winter)
- Oversized Sweaters
I love sweaters, once there is even the hint of sweater weather in the air, I automatically get excited and pull all of my sweaters out (if you follow me on Instagram, you would know this for sure). I think Rob wants to take my long cardigans away from me because I wear them so much and then become a child when they have to go in the wash and I have to choose something else to wear. Cardigans and sweaters are just so easy to throw on and go out the door no matter what you are wearing.
I have never really been one for vests…I just never understood the whole jacket without sleeves thing. I mean I have worn vest my whole life but, I never fully appreciated them until now, or really until I started riding horses seriously and competitively. I started loving to wear vest while riding and now that love has transitioned into my time out of the saddle. Again, just like sweaters and cardigans, they are so easy to throw on and be on your way. They do add a layer of warmth (just not your arms because….duh jacket without sleeves) and they also really pull your outfit together whether you are running errands or going on a hike.
Just like the whole vest thing, I never really understood the whole flats thing. They hurt, pinch your toes, and the tops of your feet are always cold. But, hear me out on this one. Once you find a pair that fits perfectly, you fall in love (obviously). I love the whole loafer trend that has been going on so I can embrace my inner grandma and I still seem fashionable J You can get them suede, leather, pleather, printed, solid, embellished, whatever! I love how they can dress up a casual outfit and again, go with anything
5. Girlfriend Jeans
I was a true, die hard, always faithful skinny jeans gal. Never did I stray from my beloved skinny jeans. Well, that is until I heard of girlfriend jeans, the sophisticated older sister to skinny jeans. They are just the right amount of being loose while also still being skinny. Now, these aren’t to be confused with slim boyfriend jeans, there really is no comparison between the two. You can get girlfriend jeans in an array of colors with different levels of embellishments and destruction. If you enjoy having a diaper butt (not actually, I’m just weird), you’ll love this style of jeans!
Let me know in the comments below what your fall essentials are and I’ll talk to you guys soon!
