This is a very dangerous time of year for me. I’m starting to see all the amazing Fall fashions and I’m itching to get started…. but….. I also don’t quite remember what I have in my closet because I haven’t done my seasonal change-over yet.
So, to stay on the safe side I’m adding just a few items I know I don’t have. I also tend to go with basic black because it will work with those forgotten-friends that are currently packed away. I’m also avoiding tops for now since I’m pretty sure I have plenty tucked away and generally speaking, they’re easier to find.
I’m super attracted to leather for this coming season (or rather, faux leather because real leather is just too damn hot!). Spanx faux leather leggings are right at the top of my list, followed by an A-line skirt similar to this one from La Maison Simons.
Although I have a pretty cool vintage leather Moto jacket, I’m looking for something a bit more updated and sleek. The Vegan Leather Moto Jacket from Banana Republic fits the bill perfectly. I’ll probably wait for one of their 50% off online sales before I add this one to my cart!
Dress and Duster
Being petite – and about 10 inches shorter than my hubby – I’m constantly looking for clothing that make me look taller. Often times, this means wearing heels or wedges, but I’m good with that! A cool shirt dress with booties or a super-long duster over jeans is a look I’m loving and can’t wait to add to my wardrobe.
Bonus – Bralette
Over the summer, I wore my white Free People Lace Bralette constantly. It looks great under thin shirts or peaking out under thanks and dresses. Honestly, it was my most worn item. So I’m thinking I have to have it in black for winter. Yup. It’s a must.
I think this will keep me busy for the next couple of weeks…. and I haven’t even started (in earnest) to look at shoes, bags and accessories so keep an eye out for that post coming soon.
What items do you have on your list the cooler months ahead?
