It's no secret that I love fall. Besides the weather and beautiful colors, it's a great time for fashion. It's cool enough that you can layer, but not so cold that you can barely tell there is a person under all the layers. Winter will come soon enough, and the opportunity to take advantage of layering will be gone. So hurry up- plan a picnic or frolick in some falling leaves. Take advantage of all that fall has to offer, and enjoy my top ten must haves for mastering fall layers.
WHO - Ellsworth & Ivey - WHAT- Oxblood Marilyn Cape - WHY - EVERYTHING. The Silhouette, the color, the leather accents. Everything about this cape is beautiful. It is made from 100% baby alpaca fur, imported from Peru.
WHO - Barbour - WHAT- Women's Tack Fedora - WHY - Barbour rarely does wrong. With this hat, they took a classic style and updated it with a felted wool exterior, a wide brim, and an authentic rope trim. Heavy enough to wear for warmth but light enough to wear for style.
WHO - L.L. Bean - WHAT- Irish Lambswool Scarf - WHY - Classics never go out of style, and L.L. Bean is full of classics. Their original patterns are woven at a family owned mill in Ireland and the updated scarf length makes it easier to wrap!
WHO - Ray Ban - WHAT- Erika Glasses (blue nylon frames, gunmetal accents, gray gradient lenses) - WHY - these have the classic Ray Ban style with contrasting rubber and metal frames giving them a modern twist. The oversized lenses add a glam touch to any outfit.
WHO - LINE - WHAT- Marris Sweater in Rosewater - WHY - I love the feminine color and the relaxed, casual silhouette. Curl your hands up in the long sleeves and snuggle into the cashmere blend. Perfect for a cool day out or a chilly night by the fire.
WHO - Madewell - WHAT- The Lydia Flat in dark cabernet - WHY - these d'Orsay flats are sleek and sexy. I love the pointed toe and color blocking. The flat features a suede toe and leather heel. Wear to dress up a pair of jeans or to dress down an LBD.
WHO - Bella Dahl - WHAT- Pocket Button Down - WHY - okay, yes. This shirt is 100% cotton and not authentic flannel. But it's so soft and warm that you won't care. The vintage wash gives it a great worn in look, and the contrast cuffs make it pop.
WHO - 7 For All Mankind - WHAT- Mid Rise Skinny with Contour Waistband in Fatigue - WHY - I love 7s. I feel like they last forever. These skinnies are 5% spandex, giving you a structured fit with a little stretch. The faded army green color is accented with eye-catching gold hardware. The comfortable contour fit will take you from day to night to day again.
WHO - Elizabeth Suzann - WHAT- Large Knot Bag - WHY - This bag is beautiful in its simplicity. The bag is 100% soft leather. There are no cold zippers or hardware. Just toss in what you need, slip the short sleeve over the longer one and you're on your way! Each bag is handmade in Nashville, so you can take a bit of southern craftsmanship wherever you go!
WHO - Kendra Scott - WHAT- Alexis Earrings in White Howlite - WHY - I developed a Kendra Scott obsession the first time I was in Austin with the boyfriend and we wandered into one of her stores. Her earrings are big, but not too heavy, so you can make a statement without the pain!
