Everything I’ve Bought for Fall

Fall is my favorite season to shop for, mainly because cold weather kind of consumes our lives from October through April so it’s easier to validate my purchases. Chicagoans complain about how long our winters are and then by the end of summer we are always ready for layers and cozy nights spent indoors. So it goes, never satisfied I guess!

I have been getting so many questions about either the things I’m wearing on Instagram or the purchases I’ve made for cooler days ahead! I thought this would be the easiest way to refer to everything I’ve personally added to my closet and my reasoning for certain purchases. For example, I wear my clothes to death in the winter – coats, sweaters, boots – they are used and abused day after day so I have learned that investment is key when it comes to building a reliable fall/winter wardrobe. I usually like to survey my wardrobe before it really gets cold because more often than not there are some things that have to go due to over wearing, maybe they aren’t my style anymore or they didn’t hold up from last year. It’s always inevitable that I stock up on a few new sweater styles, a quality cashmere sweater (my most worn!), a few coats, new winter boots and maybe some new denim. For the most part my style is pretty basic but it’s always nice to add some novelty items here and there. Here is what I bought for fall with sizing details for everything…

*note: all of these items are pieces that I have worn and personally approve of! The fit, style, quality – I love it all! So if I don’t go into a ton of detail then just trust me that I approve. 

Rebecca Minkoff Rosie Sweatshirt, wearing an XS.

Agolde Riley Jeans, wearing a 26. Very little stretch in these so I would say true to size, they don’t stretch out much!

Lele Sadoughi Headband. My favorites! So comfortable on the head. 

White + Warren Essential Cashmere Sweater, wearing a small. 

Citizens of Humanity Charlotte Jeans, wearing a 26. More stretch and tend to bag out after a few wears, amazing fit, super comfortable mom jeans!
