The life of a fashion blogger is not easy when it starts getting dark at 6pm and you have a full-time job… and you leave the office at 6pm. Clearly I am not used to this mayhem, and thus have no photos of my own for you today. But, now that I know, I’m going to try to better plan in advance. Can’t it just get dark at 8pm year round? I like that better.
But, I’ve been shopping a lot as usual (though not actually spending much of my own money, I’ve actually been doing pretty good this month!) and have a round-up of some of my favorite items that really scream “FALL!” to me.
My Fall Fashion Must Haves
1 / I shared this on Twitter earlier this week, but this blanket scarf is definitely topping my list for next purchase. It looks so snuggly and warm, and I absolutely love the colors in this one. I feel like it would go with anything! (ASOS, $34 use code RMNOCT if you’re spending $75+ for 10% off!)
2 / These Ponte Zip Leggings are so versatile! I absolutely love the zipper detail, and they can be dressed up or down. I’d love them with a cute blouse for work (I doubt anyone would know you were wearing leggings!) or my Everlane white tee on the weekends. (Ann Taylor, $79 Use code “RMN50” for 50% off pants to drop them to $39.50!)
3 / Love the new color that Old Navy is offering this bucket bag in! This emerald-green really says autumn to me, and I’ve heard nothing but good things about the quality of this bag! (Old Navy, $30 in Green, Black, or Cognac Use code TREAT to save 25% off through Saturday, 10/18!)
4 / The J. Crew City Coat has been on my must-have list for many seasons, but I’ve never found just the right color…. or just the right price. But right now it’s a bargain at less than $150! I’m loving all colors offered, but the Heather Cloud seems like the perfect neutral. (J. Crew Factory, $136.50 in Navy, Green, or Heather Cloud)
5 / These riding boots are totally “inspired” by the Frye Melissa Button Boot… but are less than a quarter of the price! And they’re even real leather. A great deal and pretty good reviews! (Target, on sale $64 in Black, Tan, or Brown)
6 / As the temperature drops, I love wearing hats to keep my head and ears warm. This floppy hat looks gorgeous, and much more expensive than it actually is. Win-win! Oh, and I may have to pick up a friend, like this fedora in burgundy. (Nordstrom, $28 in Gray or Brown)
7 / This shift dress is so cute… and it has POCKETS! Everyone knows the only thing better than a cute dress is a dress with pockets. Oh and it’s on sale too! (Lucky Brand, $50)
8 / Finally, my office blasts the AC until mid-November (our building managers are awesome! not…) so I pretty much always have a knit sweater on me in case I freeze to death. The asymmetrical zip on this one is such a fun detail! (Piperlime, $89 Sign up for their email for 30% off!)
What are your fall fashion must haves?
I need one of those blanket scarves. So I can use it as an actual blanket.
Haha, I know right? I need to use it as a blanket at work so I don’t freeze half to death!
Even though I just picked the Target dupe for that scarf up yesterday, I’m finding myself tempted to purchase this one as well!
What do you think of the Target version? It looks so cute online but was sold out at the Target I went to this weekend!
It is soooo soft! Seriously one of the softest scarves I own. When I wore it the other day though I did find that I swallowed about a month full of fuzz throughout the day but I think that’s just because I had it bunched up really tight around my neck and it was getting caught on my sticky lipgloss.
Haha! That is too funny! I did locate it at another Target finally… can’t wait to wear it :)
I am definetly on the lookout for a plaid scarf this fall <3 I might have to checkout those Target boots too!
I love the Target boots – they seem great for being leather and under $100! :)
I don’t have any of these. I need to get some Fall shopping done.
Fall shopping is my favorite – hope you find some good stuff! :)
How cute is that blanket scarf! I absolutely love it. I usually stay away from warm colors like red, but find that a scarf is the perfect way to bring a pop of pattern or bright shades into my outfit. The 6pm sunset is SO inconvenient now… I’m starting to have my boyfriend do two photoshoots for me on the weekend, haha. Even more frustrating than fashion is trying to shoot food photography, since I can only work on those cooking projects midday on the weekend now :(
Totally – I usually am a neutrals fan for scarves but I’m really liking the bold colors. I know, I need to get back on the weekend photo shoot train, but it’s tough to work around plans and whatnot. I’m thinking I may try to get some morning photos in, may start having to get up earlier!
I just ordered a Zara Dupe off Groopdealz last week for $25!! I’m so excited, so you might check to see if it is still available.
Ah I saw that one and by the time I went to buy it after work, it had already sold out! I think it’s gone, but I’m hoping they bring it back! :(
You were really speaking my language today. I was just complaining how it’s been getting dark before I leave work at 6 and how it’s ALWAYS cold in my office. Thanks for sharing all the cute items. I think I NEED those leggings.
I know, I’m loving those leggings too! And they basically look like pants. Love. What is it with offices being perpetually freezing?!
Yes, please, all of it!! That scarf is adorable. Thank you so much for the tip on the discount code. Every little bit helps!
Of course, anytime! I never shop without one (a discount code, I mean ;) )
Love the scarf and I really am so tempted by that bag! I don’t normally love synthetic bags because of the quality but I’ve heard such good things about this one!
I know, me too, but after I picked up their cheap crossbody for Disneyland, I’m thinking that Old Navy’s synthetic bags aren’t bad at all!
It would be so nice if it could always get dark at 8 – can we figure out a way to make that happen?!
I know right? It’s so frustrating not being able to take photos after work anymore!
I hadn’t seen the Asos version of the blanket scarf yet – I LOVE IT!
I know, me too! If I can’t track down the cheaper Target version I’m definitely ordering this one ;)
