10 Fall Wardrobe Favorites

We are officially in fall, yay!  Depending on where you live in the US it may still feel like the dead of summer or you might be enjoying crisper/cooler temps.  In NC we can have both on any given day.  I don't know about you, but I'm ready for a little change in my wardrobe so adding in some fall pieces to my closet is fun, even if we are still in the 80s.  Below are my 10 favorites for that early fall weather.  They are pretty versatile and can layer well for those days when the weather is all over.  I love that from the 10 pieces you can create numerous outfits and then so many more with a few other things you already have.  Its all about creating a simplified wardrobe that can easily be mixed and matched.

Here's my List (sources linked):

2. Chambray Shirt (similar)
5. Olive Utility Vest (similar), (similar)
9. Leopard Scarf (similar), (similar)
10. Ankle Boots (similar), (similar)

So this is just a few ideas for transitioning your wardrobe from summer to fall...even if the weather is not cooperating.  One of the things I've been trying to do is to create more out of my closet.  I know I seem to get into a habit of wearing the same pieces together all of the time but having a more streamlined and simplified wardrobe allows you to be more creative and get lots of uses out of less things.  Just with these ten items I can think of at least 20 different outfit combinations!  

A good way to look at an outfit is in 3's (not including your shoes).  Adding a scarf, a vest, a button up or even a statement necklace helps to create a more put together look.  I think that is why fall is so fun because you can add more layers and more combinations.  
So this week try and see which 10 favorite fall items you can choose to create multiple combinations from and get more out of your closet!


  1. I too am working on minimizing my wardrobe and I like your style (I just might have to order that striped tunic)!! I think something like this would be a good challenge for me..trying to figure out multiple outfits from 10 key pieces. Thanks for sharing!! -Kristi

    1. Thanks Kristi! I love the striped tunic! I have found that minimizing is almost a constant thing - I have to stay on top of it or I can get easily out of control again. Its definitely a discipline but it has been so nice. Thanks for stopping by!
