I can’t wait until fall officially starts on September 22nd. Although it doesn’t feel like fall in Arizona, I can assure you, we are bound to get there. (; Fall is definitely one of my favorite seasons of the year since Pumpkin Spice Latte’s at Starbucks are back! Did I forget to mention that fun scented candles at Bath and Body Works and fuzzy socks are back too!? And let’s be real, who doesn’t like getting warm and cozy in an oversized sweater while stuffing their face with s’mores?
Along with getting to pile your plate high with a bunch of delicious food, a major part of transitioning to fall is changing your closet! So unfortunately it’s time to put away the bathing suits and tanks, but it’s time to take out the cozy knit sweaters and combat boots because it’s time to conquer fall! Although fall is a time to relax, I find myself stressing about which pieces to trade off in my wardrobe. So here are a few staples to start you out this fall! (Disclaimer: You definitely don’t need all of these items to be a part of your closet. These are just a few items that can enhance your personality and let your love for fall shine through! You can even try incorporating and mixing a few items from your summer wardrobe into this season’s. Just remember to have fun and make it your own!)
Scarves: These are definitely one of my fall essentials since you can just throw it on when you’re on your way out the door to tie your whole look together or need a little bit of warmth while still staying fashionable. And one of the best parts is that they’re so versatile!
Boots: These will forever be in my heart. Whether their combat boots or Uggs, zip-up or pull on, black or brown they’re probably in my closet. They’re so comfortable and they are always the perfect accessory. You can even add knit socks peeking out of them for a more comfortable and laid back vibe.
Cardigans: These are absolutely perfect to just throw on. They give off a warm and loving vibe that just shouts fall to me. They make a great addition to any outfit!
Sweaters: There’s a reason they call it Sweater Weather! Although winter is truly the time for sweaters to make their entrance, you can never be too early! The bigger, the better! I like my sweaters to slouch and just be comfortable overall.
Beanies: Whether you’re having a bad hair day or not, hats are the way to go. Especially when they’re beanies! I think short, and curly/wavy hair looks best with beanies, but you can totally rock these no matter how your hair is styled!
Well these are just a few of my fall staples and I’m sure there are plenty more, so feel free to add to the list in the comments below! I hope you found this list helpful!
Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to go to the Back To School Bash last week, but I loved looking at all of your pictures and fun times!
Till next week, XOXO Adithy.
