Fall Back to Basics

So it seems I've skipped pre-fall and dove straight into full blown fall with this little round-up of lust worthy items. While I'm still sporting summer dresses on the regular, my mind has switched into planning and prioritizing mode - the fall budget can only stretch so far, you see, so it's always important to gather up all the items you're lusting over, compare them with what you actually need, and prioritize! 

Of the above items, the one most likely to make it into my fall wardrobe are those darling Steve Madden booties. They are seriously perfect and would fit so well into my current wardrobe! Knowing that my tall flat boots from last winter are still in great shape to be worn again this year, I'm shifting my focus to a flirty little heeled bootie for this fall's boot purchase.

I picked up a cute black skater skirt at Joe Fresh already (the one above is literally 50x more, but the scallops sure are cute) and am on the hunt for a great fitting pair of dark denim jeans and a fresh pair of black flats for the new season. Seeing as I wore my white sleeveless peplum a million times this summer, I'd like to winterize the look and find a long sleeved black peplum top as well. Cozy scarves and glittery polishes are also a must and will be accumulated throughout the season!

What's on your must-have fall wishlist?


  1. I just felt in love immediately with those ballerinas from Zara!


  2. I love the black Karen Walker sunnies you picked...so chic! Also, I have those J Brands and they are the most flattering jeans ever! Definitely my all time favorite pair. The booties are super cute...even better that they are affordable!

  4. What a fun roundup. Loving the details on these black pieces. We're excited about all the fall trends - a bit of control. But plaid or camo with leather sound great. We're starting to slowly incorporate these trends into our warm weather ensembles!

  8. Kate, these are some great fall items! I love those flats with the cute little bow. And I can definitely see you sporting this booties! Sounds like you have fall all planned out. I am not sure yet what's on my list. Definitely cozy knit wear and some fall dresses - also loving long sleeve peplum - and just peplum in general! xo
