MY TOP FALL WARDROBE ESSENTIALS FOR 2019
I have finally wrapped my brain around the Fall season and I am excited. I love chilly mornings, football, anything with apples in it (not a pumpkin gal) and, most importantly, Fall Fashion. Today I want to share some of my key pieces in my closet. These are all staple items that will be in heavy rotation this season. My theory when it comes to getting dressed has always been good quality basics paired with a few inexpensive trend items to make your closet seasonal. Without further ado, here they are:
ANIMAL PRINT CARDIGAN
I am a sucker for anything aminal print and it is a neutral to me. The animal print cardigan is everywhere right now and it is the quintessential Fall item to have in your closet. It is so versatile and goes with everything from my beloved Spanx (which I talk about below) to denim and dresses. I share 3 ways to style an animal print cardigan in my Instagram stories today. Check them out here.
Admittedly, I was slow to hop on the faux leather legging train. I was not sure they were “me”. Boy was I ever wrong. I finally got a pair a couple of years ago at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and I have been obsessed ever since. I live in these leggings now and wear them everywhere from soccer games with a sweatshirt and sneakers, to date night with a cute tunic sweater and open toed booties. They are also part of my go-to travel outfit for long flights. I can’t live without them. They suck in all of your lumps and bumps and are super comfy. They are my go-to pick for travel and long flights as well. Sizing tip: These run small. I sized up 2 sizes in these for the most comfortable fit.
Seriously, is there anything worse than uncomfortable and unflattering underwear? Like primer on a wall, good underwear is essential in making all of your fall wardrobe essentials look good and making you feel good in them. I am extremely sensitive and hate ill fitting underwear, or a tag that is itching you all day long. I recently started wearing these Fruit of the Loom Breathable Micro-Mesh bikinis and I am loving them. They feel like nothing at all and keep me cool and comfy during this weird transition weather. I love that they are affordable and flattering and they come in many colors. Breathable Micro-Mesh bikinis are tag free, (#halelujah) have a cotton liner, and a smooth and comfortable waistband. I wear them almost daily and they have become a true wardrobe essential.
PLEATED MIDI SKIRT
As a 40 something woman, the pleated midi skirt is a trend I can definitely get behind. This style is so flattering on women my age and can be styled in many different ways. I also love the comfort of the elastic waistband. Comfort has always been key for me and this easy pull-on style is right up my alley. I love this paired with a graphic tee, denim jacket and sneakers, or a chunky sweater and open toed booties for date night. There are so many cute and affordable options out there. It is a great trend piece to incorporate into your wardrobe.
This is another holy grail piece for me this season. My husband has lovingly dubbed it the “sweater suit”. I am always chilly. ALWAYS. This is a fabulous and stylish alternative to the cardigan. I have never been a cardigan lover and always felt they were a tad frumpy. In turn, I have also never loved a blazer. I never felt quite like myself in them. However, throw the two together and something magical happens. For me, anyway. I adore the combination. It feels stylish and sassy and this one is oh-so-cozy, like a soft sweater and comes in quite a few colors. I love pairing it with a graphic tee and jeans, or my Spanx, and my Adidas Rockstar sneakers. This is the perfect look for running errands, or for meeting a girlfriend for lunch.
A CUTE PAIR OF SNEAKERS
In my opinion, a cute pair of kicks is the best way to stay on trend, and for women my age to look fashion forward while still being comfy. I love my adidas sneakers and pair them with everything from my Spanx, denim and even my pleated midi skirt. They are perfect for soccer games, running errands and other mom related activities.
A GRAPHIC TEE
All hail to the graphic tee. obsessed with them and own many. I just think they are the cutes statement piece and a great way to spruce up a basic jeans and tee outfit. I am also a big fan of paring fancy with casual. Pairing a tee with a fancy skirt or dress pant adds interest to any outfit.
