Fall Additions

I'm looking forward to pulling some of my fall favorites off the top shelf of my closet, steaming them and getting them back into the wardrobe rotation. But what fun would fall be without a few new pieces of clothing, too? Here's what I'm adding to my closet this season:



My friend, Sarah, at Sealed with a Kiss has told me I'll fall in love with their Monica Jeggings. She's never steered me wrong before; plus they're long enough for those of us who are taller than average. And I picked up this Tiger-print skirt from the clearance section of Talbots. It's going to be so versatile, and will go with practically any solid-colored top in my wardrobe.



I love plaid but have such a hard time wearing button-down shirts. They always make me feel manly. But the ruffle detail on this version by Lane Bryant is a great feminine detail; and I'll tailor it to fit my curves to perfection. Fall is a season that begs for structure, just like the Trapunto Trim Long Top from eShakti. It'll look great with jeggings or a skirt. And the Pima Cotton Turtleneck that I ordered from Talbots is so soft and light; it'll become my go-to piece for layering under sleeveless dresses all fall and winter.



I need to jump on the Allegra Dress from LucieLu - the sizes available are very limited. I love the simplicity of this classic dress, from the flowing hemline to the puffy ruched sleeves. Maybe Lucie will cut a few more of this cutie...



I wear the heck out of my pale pink Open Cardigan from Sealed with a Kiss, and think this luxe grape purple shade would be a pretty shot of color to lighten up my darker fall clothing.



And last but not least, I've had City Chic's gray Military Jacket with Tails sitting in my hall closet for weeks now...it seems like a terrible idea to actually wish for colder weather, but I can't wait to wear this.

Your turn- what are you adding to your wardrobe this fall?

  5. I bought that tiger print skirt too! At that price I couldn't resist. I recently discovered Talbots and I'm in love :) Now I'm thinking about adding a sunny yellow coat (from Old Navy) to my winter collection.

  6. I also bought this skirt, but I'm stumped as how to wear it beyond a black top. Would love to see your styling ideas!

  7. I love that skirt... I am right in the middle of the sizing chart and have never ordered from Talbots. It's either an 18 regular or 16W.... thinking the 16W because it has elastic and would be a bit more forgiving. My sizes are all over... generally a 16/18 but of course they don't make that size range so I end up going bigger to an 18/20 for room. Ugh. I love/loathe online shopping ;)
