Good morning and Happy Friday!
If you haven’t looked outside yet, it’s fall today. Actually fall. A classic fall day at that– windy, chilly, cloudy; the best. I’ve finally busted out my tote of sweaters, scarves, hats, and fall/winter accessories to make it official. I am absolutely giddy every time I go outside, look outside, or just feel chilled.
Like I’ve said approximately 8,391 times before, my fashion peaks in the fall. It’s the season for strategic layering, jewel tones, ankle boots, and artful accessorization. I luckily enough look pretty fab in jewel tones, which may be a contributing factor to why I love fall so much. I stepped up my jewel tone game this past weekend while meeting up in Dubuque with a few friends for dinner. In fall, I always start off simple and then layer on depending on my mood. For my starter pieces, I went for a chambray popover and olive skinny chinos. I next went with a chic pair of suede ankle boots and my favorite fall-friendly, burgundy leather satchel. Last, I layered on jeweled accessories: a bold bracelet, edgy ring, and dainty drop-earrings. What I loved most about this look was that although it was clearly well thought out and perfectly paired together, it felt effortlessly sophisticated in such an easy way. And topping off a fall look with a berry lip? You can’t go wrong.

Looking over my fall wardrobe, I’m realizing a lot of my jewelry and accessory pieces are from Target. They have great satchels, scarves, and bold costume jewelry that works across seasons seamlessly. They’re definitely my secret to fall fashion completer pieces at insanely low prices.
Well, until next time–
