My 2023 Fall Wardrobe Fav’s
It’s Fall Baby!
Hello friends, and happy Wednesday. It’s a good day to have a good day.
I know my days are better now that it’s getting cool, and I hope yours are the same. I hope you’re staying hydrated, checking in with friends and family, and giving yourself some grace.
About twice a year, I’ll go through the current style trends for the season to see if the year’s current style is something that I’ll actually buy or naw. Do I like anything that is “trending” this season …Mostly, No. But there are a few things that I would actually wear. The rest just aren’t realistic for real people in everyday life. The goal is always to buy less, but hey …there are just some things that a gal’s gotta have.
Here are my favs for the season!
and yes, some of these pieces are on trend for Fall.
 (TRENDING FOR FALL) Oversized Striped Sweater
(I can get with this as long as I don’t look like I’m wearing my big brother’s clothes)
 Sling Bag [HACK: These bags can be expensive; find a cheaper version, and swap out the plain strap for something more stylish like this from Etsy.]
(This little bag is a go-to in my book. I’ve been wearing one all Summer for outings and short trips because it’s so convenient to slip something across your body with just the essentials.)
 Puma Smash V3 (Nordstrom Rack)
 Faux Leather Pencil Skirt (River Island)
 (TRENDING FOR FALL) Long Wool Trench
(I can live in the Matrix all day) ABSOLUTELY!
 (TRENDING FOR FALL) Flare Jeans & Pants
(I’m digging the nod to the 70s)
 (TRENDING FOR FALL) Gothic Romance
(This is one of those trends that didn’t make sense at first. One…I don’t want to look like I’m stepping out of a 1930 Dracula film or that I belong to a vampiric coven, so I tweaked my search and found a top with some of the elements of this style that’s more suited to my taste. So it’s Gothic but more of a Steampunk style. My top will arrive in October, and I’m excited. Paired with some black trousers and a blazer with boots, this is the perfect outfit for the day or evening.
 White Doc Martins Chelsea Boot
(I kept this boot in my cart for a long time, trying to determine what I would wear it with …in a word, EVERYTHING! So after the debate, I just purchased them. If they don’t work out, I can return them).
Extras for Fall not pictured:
- Camisoles to wear under my sweaters
- Wide-leged pleated pants
- T-Strap pump (These are essential for outings and my work meetings)
After this retail therapy, I’m done. I have everything I need to carry me through the Fall and most of the winter season. These pieces, paired with what I currently own, will work out nicely and give me more options when I’m headed into work.
What’s you’re favorite item to wear during the Fall season? A great scarf, a cozy sweater, or boots. Let me know in the comments.
