The first day of fall was Tuesday, and though it doesn’t especially feel like fall here in Texas, at least we can start gearing up for it! I am definitely a summer girl at heart, but there is something I love about the coziness of fall. And the clothes — bring out those boots, scarves and vests, people!
As usual with the change of seasons, I tend to do a big closet clean out and assess what I need to be on the lookout for in order to round out my wardrobe. I can already tell (pre-clean out) that I will need to invest in some staples this season. And here they are — my favorite fall basics!
I know I said stripes were one of my favorite spring-time looks, but I’ve been seeing stripes everywhere for fall, and I love it! So much so that I actually already bought both the Old Navy dress and the Madewell skirt a couple weeks ago. They have been great wardrobe additions so far!

Throwing on a scarf is my favorite way to accessorize an outfit because they can serve multiple purposes (and I’m all about efficiency). They keep you warm (HUGE plus in a freezing cold office!), as well as add a little color to your outfit if you happen to buy a lot of neutral colors like me. I love the look of a plaid scarf for fall, but I’ve also found several other patterns that I like too!

I talked about distressed denim a couple months ago, and I’m so excited to see the trend continue along into the fall. I’m especially going to be on the lookout for some black distressed jeans this season!

I surprisingly have never owned a pair of booties — weird, I know! It took me a while to get used to the look, but now that they’ve been around for a couple of seasons I think I’m finally ready to take the plunge and get some!
