There are so many ways to wear a blanket scarf, but I think my new favorite is with this little black dress!  This outfit is so easy to throw together and looks instantly chic for day or night wear.  When it gets chilly you can also add a red or beige coat!  How do you wear your blanket scarf?

I don’t know about you, but I am so guilty of impulse buying clothes, especially during the fall.  Sometimes it’s hard to resist the trends, even when you know they can only be worn for a short time before it gets cold (front button skirt I’m looking at you!).  That being said, you want a closet full of clothes that will carry you from season to season, not just pieces that are ideal for a few weeks at a time.  That’s why it’s so important to make sure that you are stocked with the essentials.  Four pieces that I can’t go without are a vest, a gingham or plaid button up shirt, a floppy hat, and some ankle booties.  Not only can you mix and match these items in a countless number of ways during the fall and winter, but they can also be worn year after year without going out of style.

TIP: To get the most out of your closet, try to purchasing as many of these pieces as you can in a neutral color so that they go with everything.  You’ll never have that, “I have nothing to wear!” moment again.  What are your fall essentials?

Side note: I’m totally loving the vampy lips for fall.  Revlon “Black Cherry” was the perfect color to match this burgundy hat!  This lipstick is normally glossy so I dusted some translucent powder over it to create the matte effect that I love.

Love,

Who says you can’t wear white after labor day?  I don’t know who decided that was a thing, but I find myself breaking that rule all the time in the fall and winter.  In particular, I love the way white bottoms (pants, skirts, etc.) contrast with a plaid shirt.  Add some pearls, ankle booties, and a fall lipstick and you’re ready to go!
