Fall is here! Basic girls of the world, rejoice! (Myself very much included)
This is my favourite time of year for many reasons, but fall clothing is definitely numero uno on my list. Few things make me happier than a cozy sweater, fresh new ankle boots, and not sweating every time I walk outside! I love shopping all year round, but something about autumn makes me extra excited.
We all know I'm far from trendy or high fashion. I'm all about my staples and basics! While it's nice to fawn over beautiful clothes or buy a funky new piece or two for the season, there are a few items I always buy at the end of summer and completely wear to death by spring: a solid knit sweater, black denim, and black ankle boots. With these three pieces in my arsenal, my fall wardrobe is good to go!
I saw these boots on Instagram and knew I had to have them! I've been on the hunt for a black ankle boot with no heel and just the right amount of decoration for months. The fun side detailing on this pair makes them interesting without being too much. I've never really tried shoes from Call It Spring for fear of them being poor quality, but these boots are changing my mind!
This sweater from Joe Fresh is a dream. So soft, and so affordable! The colour is rich and the knit is tight enough that you can't see skin through it. I believe I also saw it in grey at my local store, so I just may need to make a trip back there...
I'm looking for fun new ways to style knits this fall, aside from my usual jeans, leather pants, or mini skirt. Maybe some layering is in my future? Hitting Pinterest as we speak.
I wear black jeans to work prettttttty much every day. I have to replace mine every few months...they get so worn in that they can't even pass for black anymore! I picked up this pair of ankle length black jeans from Banana Republic during a 40% off sale, and I'm so happy I did. They are so soft and stretchy, and the colour couldn't be darker. I'm slowly learning that it's ok for my pants to be too short (long leg problems!) and I'm digging this whole "short pants with boots" thing.
