My Fall Wardrobe Essentials

Happy Wednesday loves! Unfortunately, we weren't able to squeeze in another outfit shoot but oh well--it's always fun to switch things up. Since we're getting closer and closer to fall and the stores are all stocked with fall fashion items, I just wanted to share a few of my staples from last year that I know will get a ton of use again this year!
Cozy, Neutral poncho + Burgundy Accessories--This poncho got so much wear last year and I actually just unpacked it when we moved into the new house which reminded me how excited I am to wear it again! I love this cream version that is really similar. I also got so much use out of this little Rebecca Minkoff crossbody last year. I haven't seen it back on Nordstrom's site yet but I feel like it might return once we get closer to fall! I'll let you guys know if I see it restocked. In the meantime, here are a few other gorgeous burgundy bags that are pretty similar (1 or 2)
Moto Jackets--I have one in brown and one in black and they both get SO much use! I am eyeing a few suede ones to add to the collection since the one I ordered during the Nordstrom sale sold-out. Here are a few moto jackets on my radar currently--1,2,3.
Neutral, lightweight scarf--Everyone is all about the blanket scarves and I absolutely love that trend, but it really doesn't get cold enough to wear those until closer to winter in VA! During that early fall transition time, I love scarves like this one that seriously go with EVERYTHING and are cozy enough but not too heavy. This one is almost identical to mine!
Neutral booties--I love the pair I'm wearing here but I just bought these from Vince Camuto during the Nordstrom sale and also HIGHLY recommend this pair that you guys have seen me wear a million times.
Statement denim in fall shades--These plum jeans from Paige Denim were worn on repeat last year along with an olive pair that really work year round! Here is a really cute pair in burgundy.
Last but certainly not least, the Floppy Hat--you guys know I'm ALL about the hats. My hat collection has grown exponentially over the last year and this one is definitely my absolute favorite! It goes with almost everything and is just so adorable. This one is super similar--I really want to buy the grey version!

I need both the RM and TB bags, they're so beautiful and versatile for the fall and really the TB one can be worn all year long! I also need to get a pair of black Hunters, I love the look of them and they way you've styled them in that post! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a lovely day!
