I have been gathering a list of things I need to add to my fall/autumn fashion wardrobe. I have a lot of clothes. This allows me to not have to pick up too many things and be a smarter shopper with the changing seasons. I decided to share some of what I consider to be essentials in the hopes that you guys can gain some inspiration.
I attended the Aldo A-List event on Sunday evening and one particular item stood out to me the most for the whole night. Aldo has recently revamped their fall line and included some coveted genuine leather handbags. I have my eyes set on a pair of printed flats. If you follow my fashion sense at all you can come to the conclusion that I love two things… Animal print and Pink. These flats are super comfortable and a must have for the fall. They also come in Natural (beige), a black and white marble print which is equally gorgeous, cognac, navy (more royal in person) and black.

Every woman should have a structured leather handbag. Since we are still in Aldo I decided to talk about the bag now. Ostwald Helgason x Aldo Rise have collaborated on a line for fall fashion 2014 with Aldo and I love their top-handled carryall in classic maroon. The bag features distressed matte gold hardware, pockets front and back, and room for just about anything!
Lily handbag in Bordeaux $85
We never really had a warm summer… But, fall is definitely here. It’s time to take your outerwear out of storage. If you don’t have a coat yet you might want to head over to H&M. I spotted a chic wool blended coat with a pile collar and imitation leather sleeves. I love the combination of materials and I’m sure if you can get your hands on it you will definitely turn heads this fall.

Sweater weather is definitely in full swing. If you aren’t one to layer then you should definitely try to start dressing warmer with sweaters. I found a great jewel tone cable knit sweater at H&M. The slight metallic finish makes the chunky relaxed sweater perfect for a night out for Drinks with the girls after work or a date with the mister. I have a style prediction that this Forrest Green will be big this winter.
Pattern-knit Sweater in Teal $49.95
No matter what the season hats are one of my favorite accessories. I love the power a hat has to completely change an outfit. I have began collecting a series of interesting hats and I gasped when I spotted this fabulous hat from H&M. I can’t wait to style it!
Finally from H&M I ordered this Faux Leather circle skirt. The schoolgirl style pleats give the black leather skirt lots of attitude. Coming in two options of a black and light blue I decided to go with the black. I have a feeling that this skirt will be in my wardrobe for a longtime.
I am a tall girl as I have stated in earlier posts. Therefore I find riding boots to be super flattering on my long legs and tall frame. I stumbled on these amazing oxblood riding boots by Alberto Fasciani but they are way out of my price range right now. Hopefully I am able to get my hands on something similar soon. If I do I will be sure to share it with all of you. But for now we can just sit here and admire these.

Everyone needs to have one great statement accessory that can be paired with everything!!! Try to stick to natural metal tones and clear jewel stones or something that will accent your personal style. On my wish list is a statement necklace from fancykouture.com. This beautiful piece will be worn until the wheels fall off…
