There are some pieces so essential to a season that you find yourself reaching for them multiple times a week. Fall calls for leggings, boots and oversized everything. That goes for the coffee, too.
Here are my top eight, can’t-be-without style necessities that I will be living in for the next few months.
SCARF [etsy, $19], #PSL [starbucks], ANKLE BOOTS [charlotte russe, $18 on sale!], OVERSIZED SWEATER [nordstrom, $30, on sale!], BEANIE [nordstrom, $18], RIDING BOOTS [target, $50], LEGGINGS [matty m, $15], TOTE BAG [tory burch, $245]
Since my work “uniform” consists of all black everything, these leggings are a godsend. They are super thick, so they don’t become suddenly sheer when I bend over and they keep me nice and warm come the colder months. And yes, they are $15 at Costco and probably the best purchase you will make all year. Seriously, go ahead and buy two.
Footwear is a funny thing for me. I need comfort. But I also like to look stylish (of course). So finding a great flat or stacked heel boot that not only looks pretty but will also allow me to stand for 6+ hours at a time makes me a very happy makeup artist. Target has been my go-to for riding boots for the past few years. They are fashionable, comfortable and won’t make my credit card melt. And don’t you think they look like they cost way more than $50?!
A cozy sweater, roomy structured tote and snuggly scarf round out the rest of my essentials. I also love beanies during the fall because they are a totally acceptable way to hide a bad hair day. Or just a lazy day.
Oh, and the Pumpkin Spice Latte was probably a given, but I just needed to throw it in there for the newcomers that don’t know how much of a pedestal I put those things on.
Now you know.
