Fall Wardrobe Staples

I decided that in lieu of an August favorites video I'd share some of my fall The first day of fall is September 22nd, but I'm ready to start dressing for fall now! Of course, I live in Texas, so there's a pretty good chance I'll still be dressing for summer for the next few months. Oh well, a girl can dream! When the temperature finally does start to drop, there is no guarantee it will stay down, so layers are key. Temps can go from 90 degrees one day to 40 the next (and sometimes it changes in the same day!). With that in mind, I decided to round up some of my fall wardrobe staples.

A really great scarf can totally make an outfit, and they're great for adding warmth! Even when I don't leave the house with a scarf on, I always have one in my purse just in case.

Target /  Gap / Anthro /
Burberry / BP. /
Sole Society / Mindy Mae's Market

When the skinny jeans trend first started, I was sure that I would never buy them! Now it seems that they're all I wear! Okay, that's not completely true, but more often than not in the fall you'll find me in a pair of skinnies. I rounded up some of my favorites here (the first three are under $100!).

Topshop Moto 'Leigh' Ripped Skinny Jeans / Vigoss 'Chelsea' Distressed Skinny Jeans /
Express Dark Rinse Mid Rise Bootcut / AG 'The Legging' Ankle Jeans /
  7 For All Mankind Destroyed Ankle Skinny / 7 For All Mankind 'New Iconic' Bootcut Jeans

I am all for splurging on a really great pair of shoes or an amazing handbag (or that Burberry scarf♥), but if you can find something similar for less, why not try it? Here are a few examples of steals I've found lately.

Dolce Vita created a line for Target called dv, and the these Nya booties are nearly identical to the Noa booties from Nordstrom. At $34.99, you can't beat the price, and I think the closed toe is more practical for fall. I actually scored them a few weeks ago when they were having a BOGO 50% off sale, so I got an even better deal!

I absolutely love my Clare V. foldover clutch (I have it in British Tan) and have been lusting over the leopard print one, but I found this one that looks almost identical and it was on sale for $18.99 instead of $275! Um, sold! Regular price is $49.99, which is still so much better! Okay, so the clutch arrived yesterday. I have to say that I'm not at all impressed with the quality of the material used on the outside. When I pulled it out of the package I thought it was wrapped in paper - it wasn't. It's cute enough, and from a distance you can't really tell the quality. It will work for now, but if I find that I'm carrying it enough I'll eventually get the Clare V. clutch. My recommendation for you is to snag it on sale like I did - $18.99 (or even $24.99, which is what it's on sale for now) is a pretty accurate price. Don't pay full price.
