We were lucky enough to flirt with Fall temps this past week. Although they are not here to stay, the idea of layers and warm colors makes me so happy. I am a big believer in a great set of basics. Many of these pieces have been in my closet for years.
These are all great Fall basics that you can mix and match. I love the warm tones of this collection but the mix of plaid and gingham keep it from looking too basic. Let’s take a closer look at each piece.
Love a great jean jacket. I recently added this one to my wardrobe (love the shoulders) but this one is on sale for 40% off this weekend. If you don’t already own one, it’s a great basic. I wear mine year round.

Every Fall wardrobe needs a fresh white t-shirt. Hopefully you already have a long-sleeved one, but if not this is my pick. It’s a great layering piece and looks so cute with a scarf or gold necklace.
Can’t go wrong with a great plaid scarf for Fall. The price is right and I love the warm tones of this one. I also saw that this one is back in stock and an all time favorite of mine. It always sells out quickly. This one is also crazy classic and gorgeous. I think I need to order this one for Fall.

Another Fall staple, for sure! I live in my booties. I wear low heeled booties during the day (unless I am running around in my Converse) and the high-heeled version when I go out at night.
Time to make a statement, ladies! I wouldn’t go crazy with this trend, but if you are going to step out of your comfort zone I recommend going neutral. These are so pretty and look fantastic with a simple dress.
How fun is this? I LOVE the color and the draping on it. I also like how it covers the bum and can be worn as a cardigan, too. But I must say that the draping on it is why I love it so much.
I’ve carried this for a couple of years now and love it. It has such a fun shape and a crossbody is so easy to wear. Looks good with pretty much every Fall outfit. It also comes in black.
You know I love a great pair of distressed denim. Nothing to ripped up but enough to give it some edge. I love this pair and they are only $65. They look great with a white t-shirt and blazer for Fall. Preppy with a bit of an edge! This blazer is on sale for under $50 and comes in a ton of colors! If rips and tears aren’t your thing (and I totally get that!), these are a great option.
Classic, pretty, practical. These are so fun for Fall and add a chic touch to a basic pair of jeans and t-shirt. They come in five colors but the almond suede is winning me over for sure.
I’ve always loved gingham. That’s no surprise. I wear it and I decorate with it. Recently, I added the green one to my wardrobe and wore it yesterday for the first day of Fall. It looks great with white pants or denim.

Lastly, my pick of the week is this scarf. I chatted about it above. If you’re looking for a timeless and classic scarf to wear with dresses, jeans or coats . . . this is it. These always go quickly this time of year, too.
What does this weekend hold for you? We have a mix of sports, time with the family and football watching! I am more of a college football fan so Saturday is my day.
Also a huge thank you to everyone who has sent in questions for the upcoming Q & A. I am blown away and I think it’s going to be so much fun. Feel free to keep them coming as I will definitely be doing more than one post to cover it all.

I’ve veen a silent reader of your blog for a few years now. I love your way of writing and your style. I, too, am drawn to soft material and comfortable clothes.
I’d like to send in a question for one of your upcoming Q&A:
When I was 16 years old, my godfather died in an accident at the age of 32. I am 35 years old now. Sometimes I think of him and all is well. But sometimes the pain over his loss hits me out of the blue.
Do you have any advice on how to deal with this? In this very moment?
Thank you so much for openly sharing your own grief. I feel for you.
Enjoy your day!
