We’re heading towards the end of October and it’s still 90 degrees out this week — can you believe it?! It cooled down temporarily late last week, and that’s when I started to reorganize and transition my wardrobe into more fall-appropriate wear. One of my must-have fall pieces is the flannel! They are so soft and cozy, and I love that they can be styled in so many different ways. Not to mention, they are so effortlessly stylish — I could wear them out on the streets or fall asleep in them! With the holidays getting closer, I’ll definitely be wearing more plaid flannel with holiday colors. I scored this one from Forever 21 in stores for just $20 (similar one online here) and can’t get over how soft and lightweight it is. I can even get away with wearing it on a hot day… with sleeves rolled up, of course. Paired with a classic pair of jeans and over-the-knee boots, this look is perfect for the cooler weather that LA will *hopefully* experience soon!
Another one of my fall must-haves is over-the-knee boots! I’ve learned that a lot of over-the-knee boots don’t stay up. Is it just me and my skinny legs, or can you relate? My first pair was a classic black one by Ivanka Trump that I got online, and that pair fits me perfectly. So, I never thought to question the fit of any other OTK boots. I recently got a bunch and to my surprise, most of them are a bit too loose around the leg. 🙁 Luckily, this pair has the tie-string which allows me to tighten the top of the boots to fit, but these jeans also help to hold them up. I haven’t tried to wear these boots with a skirt or shorts yet, but so far I’m happy with how they look with denim. The rich burgundy color matches perfectly with the wine accents of my plaid shirt, so I had to make it work! I’m all about color blocking and matching when I can.
Do you have any fall-must haves? I’d love to hear about them! xx
