That being said....what are some Fall staples to keep in your closet? And what are some typical outfits for a a day/night in this chilly weather? Well, let's observe, shall we??
1.) A good pair of riding boots: This is pretty standard. Nothing says ease and comfort (and warmth) on a chilly day like a pair of "to the knee" or "over the knee" riding boots. Black, tan, brown, gray, whatever. With popular fall hues such as brick, hunter green, indigo, plum, and my all-time-favorite, mustard yellow, any shade of boot will compliment your outfit perfectly.
2.) A casual yet "can be dressed up" jacket: Whether it's a trench, denim-material, or short and double-breasted with a hood, you can't go wrong when splurging on a sturdy,"transitional" (weather-wise) jacket. Sometimes you just need something to throw on with your leggings and uggs to run to the store. Or maybe your friends planned a winery trip and, although you don't have to dress up like the Queen will be there, you still want to look fashion-savvy - after all, you know there's always that obnoxious photographer friend hanging around (a.k.a. ME). I really stress this with the men in my life, as well. Getting Tony to understand the importance of a wardrobe piece such as this is similar to trying to explain The Pythagorean Theorem (that's right) to a 4th grader. Hence why I will be shopping for him, without him : )

I have to say, of the handful of places I've looked for jackets, Gap has been my favorite! So many different options and styles - plus, you can't beat the prices!
Boyfriend WILL BE in one of these (or something like it) by the end of October. He's so lucky to have me.
3.) SCARVES!! Oh, how I love scarves. I wear them all year long, you will rarely find me without a scarf around my neck or at least in my purse (seriously, I'm wearing one right now). Probably my favorite place to find scarves is Urban Outfitters, they have so many! With a plethora (i so love that word) of lengths, styles, and patterns you can literally buy one for each day of the week in one trip. I'm partial to the infinity/eternity scarf - so simple to just wrap it around without having to worry about tags sticking out or it slipping off from around your shoulders. These, in my opinion, can seriously make an outfit. Take a plain white T and skinnies with flats, add a bold-colored/printed scarf and BOOM you've got yourself an outfit! Ditch the flats for heels and you can even pull this off for casual Friday at work or a casual date night with the man.
