Fall Wardrobe Staples: Jackets and Booties

It’s Wardrobe Wednesday again!  Although it doesn’t feel much like fall lately here on the East Coast, I’ve got my closet stacked with fall wardrobe staples that everyone should have: jackets and booties!  These are the best fall basics!  Shop my outfits and my favorite items throughout the post.

The Jackets

I’m so glad to see that embellished bomber jackets are still on trend!  I bought this one at Nordstrom last year and have linked some very similar options for you.  These jackets make a fashion statement no matter what the rest of your outfit is!  It’s really one of my jazzed up fall basics, which means I can look polished and chic no matter what when I wear this bomber.  I’m so glad I get to wear this as one of my fall wardrobe staples of 2017!

It wasn’t until recently that I added a trench coat to my wardrobe, thanks to Two Feathers!  I love all of their modern classic items, and this trench is no exception.  I’m a little dressier here with a slip dress, but you could totally wear this trench with jeans.  I’ll definitely share my look with you when I do!

I will always have a special place in my heart for military style jackets.  You can wear them as a top or a jacket, and they inspire so many layering options.  This one is my current favorite.  I am just digging the oversized look!  It’s so of-the-moment!  Plus, I love the embellishment on the sleeve.

Most of you probably have a denim jacket in your lives, but do you have one that you absolutely love?  This one has just the right amount of distressing and a cute little embroidered heart (had me at hello).  Plus, this jacket is super soft- not stiff at all like some denim jackets I’ve worn in the past.

The Booties

I have problem feet, but when I bought these booties last fall, they were a problem no more.  When I wear these booties, I feel like I am walking on air!  They are more comfortable than sneakers, and how cute are they with their ruching?!  I need to find more by the same brand to add to my wardrobe.  But for now, these are it!

    The outfit combinations are amazing – so effortless but still stylish. Personally on the hunt for an affordable trench coat but good to go on the bomber trend 🙂
