Happy Friday everyone! It’s been awhile for me doing a Five on Friday, but there were so many new fall items I wanted to share I made sure to get my act together and put this post up! I hope you are planning an amazing weekend with friends and family and doing all the fun fall things. We have a few things planned and I’m looking forward to catching up with friends I haven’t had a lot of QT with lately.
For today’s post, I’m talking cold weather clothes. Bring on the sweaters, boots and soft fabrics. Not to mention, I’m getting used to the whole flipping out my closet thing as each new season approaches. In Florida, it was like one long season of the same clothes, except you usually busted your sweaters out sometime in November. Now, I like to keep my closet reflecting the current season only so it looks less cluttered and it’s easier to find something to wear when Shep is screaming for a snack and Beau is unrolling toilet paper (real-life example right there).
My fashion purchasing has also changed over the years. I’ve tried to stick with a “unless you are crazy about it, don’t buy it mentality.” I was just sick of having 5 cheap t-shirts that I didn’t really love hanging in my closet but that never got worn. Such a waste of money and space. Here are 10 of my favorite fall picks, from dresses to accessories, and only the things I’m absolutely crazy about sharing!
1 / Vineyard Vines Embroidered Dress: I got this dress for our family fall pictures, and I know I’ll be wearing it lots, so fair warning you’ll see it again in my Instagram feed 🙂 It’s so comfy, forgiving and will look great with boots and tights! Here’s a good shot of the dress from our family pictures, and the boys are in these adorable polos. Clint’s wearing this one. If you can’t tell, Vineyard Vines is my go-to spot for family picture gear because all the colors work well together.
2/ Sam Edelman flats I’m loving the fall prints and shades in these flats, but they look dressy enough to pair with jeans or a fall dress out.
3. Free People Ottoman Slouchy Tunic: I’ve worn this a few times since it cooled down and I’ve gotten tons of compliments. Yes, it runs big, but it’s also supposed to fit big. I got a small, I probably could have gotten an XS but I liked how roomy it was. It’s also super warm, so I’m sure I’ll get lots more wear out of it during the winter months.
4. Zella Twisty Tee: This tee is my favorite either taking the boys to the park or heading to the gym without having to drag a bulky coat.
5. Rebecca Minkoff Small Crossbody in Vintage Pink: I’m a big believer that pink is a neutral. I got this pretty purse and have been wearing it nonstop with almost everything. I have a bucket purse I was wearing all the time and I love it, but I finally jumped on the crossbody bandwagon and I’m not going back.
That’s it for today – have an AMAZING weekend! And leave a link to your favorite fall fashion finds in the comments. I’m always looking for special finds 🙂
