Currently Coveting - Basic Instincts

I sort of hate myself for thinking of fall fashion when the summer season is still so fun and full of life. I honestly haven't picked up a single thing for the autumn but that doesn't mean my wish list isn't growing by the day. When it comes to dressing for the cooler weather I alway like to build my wardrobe on quality basics. Things that work well with one another, share a common color palette and that will stand the test of trends. A few of my favorites finds for the fall are below. What are you wishing for your closet come October?

A great blazer will get some serious wear before the cold weather really hits. It's a clean cut and so perfectly preppy with it's popped collar and rich navy coloring {several other colors available}.

When it comes to shoes, I tend to splurge a bit. I love a quality flat as they get worn the most with city living. I absolutely love a stylish flat in a sassy leopard print for adding a little pattern to a basic outfit. A great looking black bootie is also a must have for me, I adore the pointy toe on this pair. Finally the scalloped edges on this pump have me weak in the knees. I just love the sweet simplicity style of these suede babies. They look great with dresses, skirts, denim and so much more.

It goes without saying how important a great pair of denim is. While I do like a distressed look, I don't want holes all over the place, especially when it's cool out. This pair is a steal for under $50 but I also really love this pair & this pair too. Want some great fall colored denim, check out this pair.

Accessories are my favorite things to shop for. Whether it be a great hand bag {my absolute favorite thing to buy} or some pretty jewelry, I always like to keep it rather simple. A gold hoop is my go to most days and when I want something more I'll add in a statement earring. A great watch is a must and a clutch in a fun pattern or print is a great way to elevate an otherwise simple outfit. Finally a stylish scarf to wear around your neck or tied to your bag and definitely don't forget to add some classic aviators for those sunny yet cool days.

Is there a better fall jacket then a trench? I absolutely love this one which looks exactly like the much higher priced tagged version. A great poncho over a stylish sweater is another fall favorite. I lived in this one {can purchase here} all winter, it's like wearing a hug.

Last but not least, my favorite wardrobe essentials are a great little black dress {seen in floral here} something striped like this cute sleeveless top {also love this always stylish tee} and a solid colored silk blouse. I love the lace up details on this one, the double pockets on this one as well as all the colors it comes in & the tunic style of this one
