FALL in love: '11 edition
It’s so fun to dress up in the fall because you can layer with lots of simple items and look so cute, so easily! The best part for me is that you can do your hair and makeup and not worry about sweating it off and
freaking frizzing out.
The go to outfit consists of a combination of the following:
- skinny jeans/ patterned or solid tights
- over sized sweaters/ blouses
- statement jewelry
- big bags
7 fall essentials.
even though the temperatures have been coasting in the 80 and 90’s during the day, it’s hard to resist the temptation for fall!
with the early morning sunrise and the evening sunsets offering cooler temperatures; coffee to start out the day off right, long walks to conclude an exhausting day… it’s been a nice welcome as i’ve started this first week.
m.j. asked me to post some of my fall essentials, so while i continue procrastinating from schoolwork, i have given into the temptation of ushering in a little fall fabulosity (p.s. kimora lee has totally given that word a bad rep!)
without further digression, i bring you my 7 fall essentials. keep in mind i can’t go all hog wild.. i don’t mind stretching the envelope so to speak with most of my campus looks, but i think over the knee red soled boots might be a little much.. even for me!
#1: Marc by Marc Jacobs sweater/tunic/dress. on the mornings of exams or after late nights of excessive writing, i want nothing more than to throw on a sweater, leggings/skinny jeans and tall boots. this is perfection.
#2 Frye boots i bought these boots during the nordy’s anniversary sale for nearly half the price. as much as i wore my gray frye’s last year (seen here, here, and here), i know these will be a tried and true essential to my everyday chaotic life.
#3 Anthropologie earrings. on dreary days when i’m dressed in grays or blacks, i’ll be adding some color with the help of some danglers….
#4 Joe’s skinny jeans. as much as i adore a good jegging, the quality and fit of Joe’s skinny jeans can’t be beat. they’re comfortable, classic, and look quite lovely with flats, heels or tucked into tall boots!
#5 the perfect flat. (or close to it!) these are definitely bright and can bring up the mood in the midst of cooler temperatures, early morning classes, or weekend apple picking.. (if that’s your sort of thing)! i’m usually not a fan of the jessica simpson collection but i do love a good flat (seen here, here, and here)!
#6 Matta scarf. seriously an essential! i discovered the matta through emily and maura’s blogs and dug right in; i’ve never looked back. i’ve worn it in the fall, in the spring and even in the summer. (i actually bought mine on ebay…bargain shopper, i tell you!)
#7 DKNY plaid sleep shirt.. after a long day of reading, writing, analyzing.. there’s nothing better than craving comfort… and donna karen has delivered just that in a bright and soft plaid design… amen.
