Hi Guys, Happy September!!!
Fall is my favourite time of the year here in Winnipeg. Although the perfect weather really only lasts like 3 weeks, it is the BEST THREE WEEKS. I do have to add that my birthday and now my babies birthday’s land within those three weeks, so it makes it extra special.
Fall fashion to me is dressing up the basic t-shirt & jeans by adding fun layers. Throwing in pops of colour or print within scarves, or fun accessories. This fall the trend seems to be focused heavily on prints. That print is leopard to be exact, and I am obsessed.
I have really been into the cognac/brown colour for years, and mixing with your basic blacks/whites is like my favourite style. I have shown below a few staple pieces to have in your wardrobe this fall.
Shopping can get excessive, however if you build your wardrobe with your KEY STAPLE items first, adding in a few trendy pieces can keep any look current.
Okay so let’s talk about your first must have in ANY wardrobe. A basic white tee. You can have your choice of any neck line, fit, whatever you choose. This is a MUST. I have been loving on THIS tee lately and the best part? It is $22!
I love a good pair of jeans, and I just recently invested in a good pair of jeans however they are not the colour I would love to show in this post. I purchased more of an indigo shade. For this post, I will share a pair of jeans that I have my eye on to invest in which are THESE ones. Investing in good jeans will save you money in the long run. I was purchasing jeans from a lower quality brand and spending $50 every 2-3 months to replace them. I spent $175 on my newest pair of jeans (the most I have ever spent on a pair of jeans) and I have worn them constantly over the last 4 months and they look BRAND NEW.
As I had mentioned, the trend this fall is Leopard print. You can pair the jeans/tee combo with a cute leopard scarf which is the least expensive way to get in on the trend. THIS scarf is so cute and only $25!!
Now another must for this fall is a great leather or faux leather jacket. I love THIS one and currently have my eye on it.
If you aren’t a leather jacket kind of girl, then true to my style, I would reach for a cozy cardigan. One of the cardigans that sold out from Nordstrom last year SO fast that I couldn’t get my hands on was THIS one. I have it in my cart right now, so it will be making a debut to my wardrobe really soon!
On to shoes, I would go with a basic flat to bring this look together. A lot of bloggers have been adding another pop of the leopard print loafers, however I’m not sure how long that print with the loafer style shoe, will be in style for. If you want to get in on the loafer trend then I would suggest THIS pair. However, I gravitate towards THIS pair. Plus, they are $28!
I also want to do a splurge/save post for following trends this fall so stay tuned! It will be up in the next few weeks!
I hope you all enjoy this post!
