5 Basic Items to Add to Your Closet For Fall

Sep 26, 2017

I don’t know why but Fall is always my favorite season to shop for.  Today I wanted to share  5 basic items to add to your closet for Fall!

Tee Shirt | Leggings | Booties | Sunglasses (only $12) | Necklace similar | Gold Hoops

To take this look to a more Fall look I just tossed on a cardigan.  It is still pretty hot here in Charleston so it may be awhile til it is legit sweater weather for us.  I have however been wearing this cardigan around the house over my lounge clothes!



1 | a white tee shirt– I love love love this white tee because of the length.   It is perfect paired with leggings and cute with skinny jeans too.  Also how cute is the split back???  I am wearing a size small runs TTS.  This white tee is another favorite, not quite as long but a great basic tee for layering.  I also own it in the gray and black, you can’t go wrong with any of the colors and it is under $20.

2| faux leather leggings– I used to swear by spanx and still love them but after I ordered these faux leather leggings I have to say I like them better than my spanx.  I love the fit, they are high waisted and they suck everything in.  I also like the finish better than my spanx they actually look like real leather.  I am wearing a size medium, with leggings I always err on the side of caution and order a size up typically.  I promise you will love these leggings.  The day I wore these to shoot pictures with my mom 3 people stopped and asked me what brand they were.  Plus they are really flattering, they will make your legs look crazy skinny. They also come in a really pretty gunmetal color as well.

3| booties – I am a loyal fan to Rag and Bone booties.  I have had these several years and still love them.  I realize they are an investment but worth every penny in my book.  This is an almost identical pair for a fraction of the price if you don’t want to spend as much money.

4| a long cardigan – I bought this cardigan in 2 colors I loved it so much.  It is crazy soft and great to toss on over so many different outfits.  I am wearing a size XS, it runs on the large side.  It comes in 5 colors and they are all great for Fall.  I am wearing the heather petal color.  I bought this cardigan during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and it is another great one to add to your closet.

5| fun sunglasses I am obsessed with all the BP sunglasses at Nordstrom.  They are cheap and just a fun way to switch up your glasses.  The pair I am wearing is only $12!  I am notorious for scratching or losing my sunglasses so at this price point I don’t feel bad about that!

    Thanks! I never know what shoes to wear with leather leggings (leather on leather vs suede etc) but love how the r&b booties look- another reason I need another pair in black. . .
