fall basics part two

part two of my fall basics series, some great picks and alternatives for all items! details after the jump!


01 | FAUX LEATHER JACKET -- i have a similar style in black from last year, but this Forever21 faux leather moto jacket in grey is looking like a good option. hmm......
02 | ANKLE BOOTIES -- as much as i love booties, the low heel bootie is the most comfortable, here is a good pair of black suede slip ons from Sole Society mars elastic gore bootie. similar to the Vince Camuto corter bootie (but with a zipper).

03 | TURTLENECK/SWEATER DRESS -- this is going to look good with OTK boots or ankle booties! this is the Banana Republic turtleneck micro-stripe sleeveless dress in gray. similar ASOS Glamorous ribbed long sleeve in gray. this ASOS petite swing dress with long sleeves is also a great loose-fitting option! (because we are all about options!)
04 | FAUX FUR STOLE -- stiles are classy and can be used to dress up any neckline, especially jackets! this one from Nordstrom BP faux fur stole in tan has an opening where you can criss cross the ends. another option from Sole Society faux fur stole in brown (doesn't criss cross).
05 | CAPE -- there's something you should know about me. i love capes. i don't know why. they are sometimes difficult to wear and people either like or hate them because you can easily "get lost" in them. but there are ways you can wear them, like with a belt to help. i really like this fall color palette from ASOS River Island blocked sleeveless cape. here is another option in a single camel color ASOS New Look fringe poncho
06 | FLOPPY HAT -- Topshop floppy felt hat in black the Nordstrom floppy wool hat is also very cute and available in a variety of colors. also love $$ on the Old Navy felt floppy hat, see @stylemissmolly rock it in her recent post!

white oxford & taupe booties

the white oxford button down. it is the ultimate preppy--Ralph Lauren style. it's clean. it can be worn year-around. and it goes with everything! definitely a staple for every closet.

for spring/summer, i would pair it with some chino shorts, Keds canvas sneakers, and top it off with a straw fedora. here i've dressed it up for fall with skinny jeans and a pair of taupe suede booties. i always like to add a statement necklace and earrings for an extra feminine touch. other great options for this top in the fall/winter include: riding boots, over the knee boots, vests, blazers, and a floppy hat!

and finally... after months of being in the dust bag, my navy Celine micro luggage tote makes a debut in a blog post! i felt it matched so well, especially with the white and taupe color scheme.
