FALL staples

And so the best season of the year has officially kicked-off. I love (love love!) everything fall has to offer - including the best weather for fashion. Not cold enough for coats and gloves yet, but chilly enough to wear scarves and closed-toe shoes. Hey, I'm just glad I'm not sweating through 95 degree weather still. The struggle is real.

I've rounded up my fall staples for the season - including everything from leather jackets (always a must-have in my book), to oversized watches. Check out my style inspiration board and fall picks below. And fret not, almost every option has a splurge vs. steal idea - so lots of price ranges available! 

Neutral Booties ($40) - I love the cut of these - and they are so inexpensive! I find myself wearing my tan booties all year around, so this is a great option if you go through them like I do. This way you can get them in every color!

Plaid Scarf ($60) - I love plaid. I love scarves. This one is a match made in heaven. If you want a cheaper version, I love this one, and have this one. And this patterned gray option isn't bad either.

Leather Jacket ($685) - As you may know, leather jackets are quite the investment, but it's one I think is well worth it. I love that this one is navy instead of black, and the cut is perfect. But don't fret if you don't have an extra $700 laying around! This is a great inexpensive option, and this is a great faux-leather option. 

Oversized Watch ($275) - I am a sucker for a beautiful watch. My dad has quite the watch collection, and his love for a good timepiece has certainly rubbed off on me. I'm loving the unique coloring and detail in the Cora Series Zebrawood + Turquoise JORD watch - and yeah, it's WOOD. How freaking awesome is that? Obsessed.

Oversized Sweater ($168) - Free People kills it when it comes to anything oversized and bohemian, so there's no surprise here that their sweaters are on point this season. Looking for something a little cheaper? I love this one and this one too.

Striped Shirt ($34) - I love stripes and I'm so glad they're getting their comeback - although they never really ever go out of style. I like the flow of this loose one from Urban Outfitters, but love a good classic crewneck too. 

Plaid Shirt ($49) - Luckily these days, you can get a decent plaid shirt pretty much anywhere. I have a few of these ones by BDG, and they have a great "drape" to them and come in SO many different colors. I also really like the color scheme and style of this one.

Knit Beanie ($27) - Etsy is the place to get hand knit, quality made items, and this beanie is the perfect example of everything I want in a warm, stylish fall staple. The grey tone/marbled coloring is perfect for every skintone, and for $27, you might as well buy two ;)
