Despite Wednesday being the first day of Fall I wasn't one of those people prepped and ready to post about their new favorite sweater. Mostly because DC is doing that cool in the morning hot in the afternoon thing and I'm just not in the sweater wearing mood yet. I *am* apparently in the mood to window shop for things though, and I noticed that I'm leaning towards a very particular color palette this season. Since actual OOTD posts will come later I thought it'd be fun to talk about the common themes I seem to be gravitating to right now, and the pieces I think I'm going to add to my closet:
I have been hunting for that perfect Olive Green piece for what feels like years, and this time I'm determined to one pair of pants and at least one top to my wardrobe..and probably a hat.
Surprisingly I don't have a lot of grey in my closet. I think I bought one causal shirt last year from Banana Republic, but this year it's turning into a neutral I just really enjoy pairing with other neutrals, especially black. And how cute is that polar bear sweater?! I'm not sure I can justify it's $138 price tag at the moment, but I enjoy admiring it from afar.
Not very interesting, but the ubiquitous brown and black are big parts of my Fall wardrobe, especially in the shoe department. Booties have been impossible for me to find, as in I've been looking for literally years and haven't found any I like, but these Blowfish ones from DSW turned out to be unexpectedly cute. And the Michael Kors boots, if they fit my calf, I'm hoping will be my perfect (& slightly more budget friendly) OTK option.
1) French Connection Sweater (I saw this in TJ Maxx so no link, but here's a beautiful olive green cowl neck sweater at Anthropologie) 2) Marra Bootie 3) Old Navy Fedora 4) Etsy Shirt 5) Ellis Blazer 6) Skinny Stretch Cargo Pants 7) Animal Intarsia Sweater 8) Joanie Boot
And that's it! I don't have a specific budget in mind for the season but I'm hoping to only add pieces to my closet that are unique and make me happy, which I think is a resonable goal.
What about you, do you have anything you'd really like add to your fall wardrobe?
