Wishlist :: back to school fall favorites

Wednesday, August 5, 2015

Summer is my favorite season, and although I'm sad to see it quickly passing, autumn is the perfect opportunity to upgrade your closet and invest in some forever staples. Each of these pieces are also very chic and comfortable enough to wear to your fall classes. For this post I've put together a few of my current fall favorites that can be worn now and later - it's a style win-win!

1. Silk scarf: This watercolor scarf from Anthropologie provides the perfect dose of color to a monochrome or neutral outfit. The fabric is light enough for summer while being thick enough for fall. This is the piece that will make your look pop this season. 

2. Chic backpack: Sometimes a backpack is more practical than lugging around a large purse all day. This one from Fjallraven Canada is super sleek in black and holds all of your fall essentials - it even has a special padded pocket for your laptop! Black not your color? They have an array of other gorgeous hues too. 

3. Striped tee: A striped tee is an item that I have duplicates of in my closet. It's a no-fail option when it comes to staying trendy, not to mention it's completely seasonless. I like dressing mine up with statement accessories and bold pops of color. 

4. Vintage-inspired sunnies: Eye protection never goes out of style, especially when you're sporting a polished pair like these Madewell beauties. Handmade from the best possible materials, I love how these have an old-school flavor and can easily be dressed up or down. 

5. Caged sandals: When it comes to sandals that effortlessly transition into the fall season, opt for an edgy pair with a block heel. I love these Franco Sarto ones from Nordstrom and they're less than $90. Black is my go-to color for fall footwear, but these also come in light brown and coral. 

6. Gray denim: This fall, gray is the new blue. A pair of jeans in a stone-colored hue is fresh and extremely versatile. I love this pair from Ann Taylor because they come in tall, petite, and regular sizes. Plus the lean fit is universally flattering and comfortable.  

7. Statement lipstick: I picked up a tube of Bite lipstick in Barberry this past weekend but now I'm itching to get this beautiful shade of Black Cherry as well. Both colors are limited edition and are go-to fall colors. Matte yet moisturizing, this lipstick is about to become your new favorite.

  16. This is the perfect list Kat! I can see myself having all of those items you showed us in the collage! And I would surely not mind having that lipstick as I think that fall is all about deep burgundy color! One of my faves!
