September is here which means fall is finally here! My favorite season of the year! Even though technically it doesn’t really turn fall here in our part of Texas. While most states are lowering into cooler temperatures, good ole’ south Texas is still and will continue to sit up in the high 90’s with the exception of a few random weeks of cold temperatures. Mother Nature sure does like to play with us. Regardless; Halloween, thanksgiving, (my birthday), and Christmas are all right around the corner and I’m beyond excited! This girl is ready to spend her pay check in Kirkland’s and have no regrets.
It may not get exceptionally cold here but, fret not, we still whip out our fall and winter wardrobe no matter if its 50 degrees in the morning and back up in the 80’s by noon. The secret to combating our bi polar weather is Layers. You start off with a loose tank or shirt, throw on a thin sweater, your jacket and maybe throw on a cute scarf and you’re set to go! Lunch time rolls around and you’ve peeled off 3 layers and are down to just a tank or shirt. *Shrugs because it’s Texas*
Now, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t go shopping from all new statement fall pieces. Sure I could pull out last year’s clothing… but think of all the cute new fall clothes target is going to put out! As much as I’d like to buy a whole new fall wardrobe, the way my bank account is set up is just not going to let that happen Haha! So, a few signature statement pieces to pair with my already too full of a closet will do. Check out some of my fall must haves!
Faux leather jacket – This is the perfect jacket for fall and winter. It may not keep you the warmest on exceptionally colder days but thankfully it’s a perfect piece to layer up!
Ankle booties – I am obsessed with booties. Period. Ankle booties is something every girl should have in her closet. Taupe, black or even grey booties are bound to pair great with whatever fall outfits you’re ready to put together!
Scarves- To keep you warm or to add a little extra style to your outfit? Both! Scarves are near and dear to my heart (and closet lol). They always add a little extra UMPH to your outfit and get the job done of keeping you warm when you’re like me, and chose a cute jacket vs. a jacket to keep you warm.
