I’m definitely not ready to put the short skirts and cute sandals into the back of my closet quite yet, and let’s be honest, I’ll still rock my mini skirts when it’s snowing and 20 degrees outside, but Fall is on my mind and that means cozy sweaters and cooler weather are just around the corner. It’s the perfect time of the year to start pulling the knitwear from the back of the closet, dusting off my worn ankle boots and dressing for transitional weather.
This season is so lovely to witness here in the mountains. The leaves start to turn and the nights get cozier, as well. It’s all about planning warm meals, turning the fireplace on (we have a gas fireplace, so it’s literally just the flip of a switch!), and snuggling up for your favorite movie with your significant other. It’s also about having fun with fashion’s favorite season. Discovering new textures, layers and shades to add to my seasonal staples is something I truly love. I am always so excited with each shipment from my favorite brands to the store and love to start pairing unexpected colors, prints and pieces together.
The usual culprits for fall, like chunky knits, soft leathers and anything suede, make their way quickly into my shopping cart. But I’m trying to keep an open mind for what could be worn in the Fall this year to push my wardrobe. Here are some amazing pieces I’ve found for dressing for transitional weather!
One of my new favorite colors is quickly invading my Fall wardrobe and I’m loving all of the options that I’m finding in green this season! I love how easy this shade is to wear and incorporate into every look. It’s bringing some new life into my old looks. It all started with an amazing wool dolman sweater from Just Female that I couldn’t stop thinking about once I saw it (and the matching sweater pencil skirt!). The one item that is hard to find in a shade of green are shoes, so if you spot any tag or tweet me please!
SHOP GREEN FOR FALL
Fall textures are definitely some of the richest feeling of all the seasons. Chunky knits, structured jackets, suedes, leathers and cozy textiles make pieces feel luxe and special. Leather is something I’m always excited to break out this time of year. From boots to bags and skirts to jackets, it’s something I like to have in my wardrobe towards the end of Summer and beginning of Fall. This year the selection has me craving leather everything!
SHOP SUEDE FOR FALL
If you know me at all, you know I love my chunky knitted sweaters and roll necks! I love feeling swallowed up by an oversize sweater. There are always amazing knitwear pieces to have every year, and this season is no different. Navy, grey, cream and black will be my go-to colors for this Fall.

Jackets are another classic for dressing for transitional weather. I love to push the boundaries with most items in my wardrobe, but when it comes to jackets and coats I like to invest in classics that I can wear for multiple seasons. I am still really into bomber jackets, and have been wearing a wool moto-style jacket for the past year.
SHOP JACKETS FOR FALL
Last, but not least, boots! If there is one item I can’t live without in the Fall it’s a boot or bootie. I love my pair from Fortress of Inca so much, but as the weather gets cooler and the skirts get longer, I like to elongate my legs with closed toe, statement heeled boots. I’ve already got my eye on several pairs that I am dying to have and I can’t wait to pull last year’s favorites out to combine with this season’s outfits.
