Today is the first day that it actually feels like fall in my city. It’s crisp, cloudy, and blustery outside, and inside, I’m thinking about all things fall wardrobe. This year I’m striving to go back to basics with my fall capsule, and I want to take you along with me. I’m paring things down, making sure everything works together cohesively, and being mindful about new purchases. As I’ve worked through the process of getting my closet in order for the new season, I’ve been thinking a lot about the building blocks of my fall wardrobe. These are the classic pieces I wear year after year, and when they wear out I purchase them in a new iteration. I’ve come up with a list of five classic pieces I love for the autumn season. These could be adapted in so many ways to suit your own personal style, and I hope this list is a helpful start to building your fall wardrobe.
Fall is quite possibly my favorite time of year when it comes to dressing. I love all of the layering, cozy knitted pieces, plaid, tweed, and combinations of neutral and jewel tones. The textures and colors create so much warmth, dimension, and interest allowing for a wonderful sense of creativity in the construction of an outfit. As I’ve approached autumn dressing this year, I’ve found myself browsing vintage shops. There are so many incredible classic pieces available for this season, making it a great time to experiment with vintage shopping if you haven’t already. From cable knits, to unique outerwear, here are some of my favorites this fall.
Happy Monday friends! I’m starting to plan for my fall capsule wardrobe, even though the weather has gone back up to summer-esque proportions this week. I recently pulled all of my autumn clothing out of storage, and began to evaluate what I wanted to keep, get rid of, and purchase for the new season. Unfortunately a few of my pieces were attacked by some moths with expensive taste, so I’m anticipating having to replace a few more pieces than usual. While I’ll be thrifting and sewing several items, I also want to purchase from a few ethical brands this fall, both so that I can try them out, and so I can share my experiences with you. Here are some of the pieces I’m eyeing for autumn!
I love wardrobe staples that can be mixed up across all four seasons, and today I wore an outfit that was entirely made up of pieces I wear all year! Basics are awesome for pairing with statement pieces, but I also love how they look together for a more simple and casual look. Today’s look is a combination of a striped shirt, anorak jacket, and jeans. These are pieces I always have in my capsule, so today I’m sharing how I style them for the autumn and winter seasons!
Because basic doesn’t have to mean boring, does it?
Happy Thanksgiving friends! Over the past several years this holiday has become more and more special to me, and gratitude has become something I try to be intentional about practicing. It is so easy to get caught up in day-to-day business and forget to take time to reflect, so I love that we have this time set aside each year to remind us of all the good in our lives. One of my favorite quotes reads “interrupt anxiety with gratitude.,” and I’ve been working to live this quote out.
