Fall Uniform Inspiration

Can we all just agree that this is the best season for getting dressed? Crisp mornings mean plenty of layers, bringing out the boots and endless plaid. Ok, glad we’re on the same page. Each year as we head into autumn, I tend to turn towards the same essentials and basic pieces that build a perfect fall wardrobe. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite fall ensembles and autumn uniforms, all built from similar pieces, for those days when you need a little inspiration…

Fall To-Do List

October is simply the best. When pumpkins started popping up on front steps in my neighborhood, I think my heart skipped a beat. Even though I’m always up for any fall or Halloween-related activity, I created a little condensed list of things I definitely plan on doing this season. Hello favorite month of the year, I’m ready for all your autumnal adventures.


Fall To-Do List


One // Go apple picking

Two // Do a closet purge for the new season

Three // Go tailgating (I’m not so concerned about the football piece, but a big yes to pumpkin beer and good food)

Four // Carve a pumpkin and make toasted pumpkin seeds

Five // Bake an apple pie from scratch

Six // Go on a fall hike

Seven // Give a seasonal update to my front porch

Eight // Find the best vegetarian chili recipe

Nine // Host a Halloween party with good friends and good wine

Ten // Make some fall floral arrangements for around the house

T-Shirt Dress


This easy outfit was from a couple weekends ago when the crisp autumn air hadn’t quite arrived yet, but I could just as easily wear it today layered with a sweater or denim jacket. There is no denying I love a classic t-shirt dress. I mean, could there be an easier outfit? (Hint: NOPE). Even though I’m been pulling out all my favorite fall pieces, these heels are still in heavy rotation. The print and chunky heel are everything.

Friday Favorites

It truly boggles my mind that tomorrow is the first of October. It’s not only my favorite month, but my 30th birthday is on the 30th, so that’s definitely exciting to look forward to. This weekend we are going apple picking if the weather holds out and I’m going to make my annual attempt at baking a pie from scratch. Wish me luck. Hope your weekend is wonderful!




A few favorites from around the web…

I’ve definitely been stocking up on booties for the fall. They mighttt just be my favorite shoe. These Dolce Vita booties are on sale for under $120 and I also love these olive Marc Fisher pair.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know this is my new favorite mascara. Eyelashes for days. And I’m also addicted to this lipgloss.

I love the little front tuck detail of this sweater knit top and these distressed legging ankle jeans that are on sale.

If you’re in need of a good, new read, do yourself a favor and read Amy Schumer’s Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo. It’s the perfect blend of her humor and more sentimental moments from her childhood. I also recently finished Eligible, which was a cute, easy read.

Fall Essentials No. 2

We’ve enjoyed our first cool days of the season this week and I’ve busted out the booties and layers. It’s the best time of the year. Today I’m adding to my fall essentials list, with classic options at every price point.



1 // Cardigan
Cardigans really are the easiest layering piece to ever exist and make getting dressed a cinch. This week I’ve thrown one on over both blouses and dresses and headed out the door.
Splurge // Banana Republic $78
My favorite // Halogen $46
Save // Old Navy $24


2 // Loafers
Loafers are where it’s at this season. I’ve yet to invest in a pair, but have narrowed down my options. They look perfectly tailored with jeans and add a little menswear edge to dresses.
Splurge // J.Crew $198
My favorite // Franco Sarto $109
Save // Steve Madden $80


3 // Vest
I love throwing on a cute vest over a sweater or button down. The cozy vest says “Fall is here”, while the lack of sleeves says “It’s not that cold yet”. (deep thoughts). Anyway, it really is another easy layering piece and perfect for outdoor weekend activities.
Splurge // J.Crew $138
My favorite // J.Crew $128
Save // Old Navy $35

Cranberry Cardigan


This past weekend fall finally started to make its debut. Not a full-blown appearance, but just a quick peek into what’s to come. Since the transition from summer to autumn seems to be a little longer this year, I’ve become a pro at layering. Cardigans are a no-brainer (and will be a part of my second Fall Essentials list) since they are the easiest layering piece in existence. I’m stretching this summer blouse into fall with this cranberry cardigan, and stocking up in every color.

It’s officially fall! It doesn’t quite feel like it yet, but I’m anxiously awaiting those crisp fall temps. This weekend is supposed to cool down and I’m looking forward to heading to a football game and spending some time downtown. I’ve started my annual Fall To-Do list and I’m really looking forward to experiencing all those quintessential autumnal activities. Hope your weekend is wonderful!



Cardigan: J.Crew


A few favorites from around the web…

Madewell is offering 30% off sale (so good) through midnight tonight so act fast! I’m obsessed with this cozy sweater, these booties and this field jacket. Also this buffalo check shirt is quite cute.

Love these leopard heels on sale for under $80. Also these Vince Camuto booties are perfect. Ok fine this pair too.

Did you hear that J.Crew is now available at Nordstrom? Because I’m pretty excited about this development. Love this little leather bag and I adore this simple striped tee.

It’s about that time I’m ready to wear a plaid scarf everyday.
