Fall is in full effect over here and I’m finally ok with it. I’m getting used to putting on a coat or vest every time I leave the house, and I’m embracing cozy sweaters like it’s nobody’s business. I thought I’d share my fall wish list, including some pieces that I’ve already picked up, and some that I still hope to buy in the coming weeks.
I’ll start with plaid shirts. My collection is already insane so my rule this year is to only by classic versions that I know I’ll wear year after year. I started with this classic Stewart plaid from J.Crew (worn earlier this week) and then hit up LL Bean for this red plaid flannel (in the Prince Charles Edward option) that I’ve wanted for a few winters now. And that’s it! Unless something insanely good comes along for winter, I’m all plaid-shirted out. Although if I didn’t already have this pattern, I would snap up this shirt which will be perfect for the holidays.
Now onto sweaters… Now that I work from home, I’m opting for oversized, thick cozy sweaters as opposed to the more structure, professional ones I was drawn to for the office. This turnleneck sweater, hands down, is my favorite so far this season. I have it in light grey, but it comes in 10 colors, so there is something for everyone. It’s a great price too! I find myself reaching for it almost every day and have to stop myself. I also love this tunic sweater that is the crew neck version of the v-neck I wore in yesterday’s post (no longer available). It comes in five colors and is only 39!
I have a lot of outerwear already so didn’t really need to stock up this year but have had my eye on this plush fleece vest after seeing a few of my friends wear it. I picked up a new Barbour during the Nordstrom sale last month (sold out now) but love the selection here. Barbour coats are classic and you’ll own them forever. I’ve had my olive one for almost 10 years now! While I love my Hunters, I have been looking for a pair of rain booties. They feel like less of a commitment and make less of an aggressive statement. I found this pair that comes in three colors and will look quite chic with leggings or dark jeans. Note: I just heard from a reader that Sam Edelman has a similar pair on sale for $39.
As far as accessories go, I added this leather-handled version of a classic tote to my list after seeing it in Carly’s post earlier this week. I’ve been wearing a lot of baseball caps lately, especially for dog walks. I got this needlepoint hat over the summer, and am looking to pick it up in red for fall.
