My fall favorites are a mix of high and low end pieces, which is pretty typical of my shopping habits. I love a good bargain, but I hate sacrificing quality. Case in point...I can't tell you how many black blazers I've been through over the years. I've tried them from everywhere from Target, to H&M, to Forever 21...and they either didn't fit quite right, or showed signs of wear after just a couple of uses. I recently decided to just bite the bullet and invest in the J. Crew Schoolboy blazer (which I found on eBay in my size!), and IT. IS. AMAZING! I got it in petite sizing it's the perfect fit in the shoulders and torso, though the sleeves are about half an inch too short for my taste (I just cuff the sleeves). Perfect example where it's better to invest in the pricier option for a closet staple...and I'll have it for years to come!

On the other hand, I can never get enough of Forever 21's blouse selection. Their quality seems to be a bit better in recent seasons and you can't beat the prices! Another favorite of mine this season has been the patent flats from Forever 21 above, and the ankle boots from Old Navy...seriously, these are sooo comfortable!

What about you...have you found any must have items this fall? I'd love to hear about them!

  1. I love the red plaid coat! I keep wanting to buy something similar, but then I remember that I already own a couple of similar red coats and don't need another ;)

  5. I love your fall picks! It is always hard to narrow down what is necessary and what is just an "I want!" Everything on your list is obviously necessary, right ;)
