Major Fall Haul

I've been browsing all the new magazines and got a great glimpse at all the Fall Collections this past week while out and about for Fashion's Night Out and have come up with my top few "Must-Haves" for this season.  The all mix and mingle well together, so these 6 updates to your Fall closet could be all you need for a few fresh looks!

#1 - Fitted Blazer

I went with this kaleidoscope patterned look from ZARA.  It has a tailored, sophisticated fit and will allow me to wear it a million different ways.  It's one of those pieces you might pass by as it's a little much on it's own, but layer it to tone it down or make a simple LBD a bit more interesting.  All those colors make it an easy piece to pair with just about anything.  Striped shell underneath is J Crew.

#2 - Ankle Boots

While these are to be found in all the stores this season, I got lucky organizing my shoes this Summer and found this great pair that are already broken in and a little rugged.  Pair these with some navy or burgundy cords, boyfriends jeans (strategically rolled up, of course) and for a little adventure try with a sweater dress and vibrant tights.


#3 - Textured Handbag

A great way to spice up a basic Fall look is to have a go-to bag that adds a pop of color on the days you just want to keep your clothes basic.  Forever 21

#4 - Lightweight Sweaters

I found these two at Old Navy, but the inspiration came from a few looks I saw in J Crew - Uh, HUGE $ savings!  You'll find them great for mixing in with some varying patterns (perfect for under my new blazer above or one of the skirts below).

#5 - Pencil Skirts

Found at my Majorly successful trip to the Trina Turk Sample Sale, tweed pencil skirts are a definite part of this year's Fall to Winter look.  

And #6 - Subtly Patterned Skinny Jeans

For a little bit of whimsy I am drawn to the patterned skinny jeans (no florals, please) and got lucky once again finding these at Forever 21.  Love the slimming effect of a dark, black jean and the slight hint of the polka dots make it easy to just throw on a basic tee, easy infinity scarf, ankle boots and a chunky statement necklace for a casual & fun look (zero effort)!

Happy Shopping!
