Early Fall Favorites

Every season brings new trends and I don't know about you, but I LOVE going through pages and pages of new arrivals each season and seeing what's new, what I love and what I think is absolutely ridiculous - there's always a few, lol! I've said many times that although I do like fall, I'm 100% a summer girl and I can't believe we're already talking about the cooler weather but it's quickly approaching! If you're looking for some new pieces to add to your closet this fall, these early seasonal finds will have you swooning!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14

1. Black Removable Hood Moto Jacket: this is one of my favorite new purchases and it hasn't even come in yet! It's been around for a while (also comes in multiple colors - check out the gorgeous dark/forest green - it's stunning!) but it hadn't caught my eye until I saw it in the store a few weeks ago. They didn't have my size in stock so I ordered it and it's perfect for fall. The hood is detachable so if you want a bit more dressed up look you can remove it, or wear it for a simpler, casual outfit. I find it to run a tiny bit small, so if you're in between sizes I'd size up.

2. Tortoise Open Hoop Earrings: the never-ending saga where I hunt for the best, lightweight earrings that my ears can handle continues on this fall! ;) These are not the lightest I've felt, but are totally doable and aren't by any means heavy. I love the shape and that they're opened hoops! They'll go with just about everything and make a fun, understated statement.

3. Converse Shoreline Sneakers: I *LIVE* in these shoes year round. I take them on every trip, wear them with nearly any outfit and could fill a closet with these so I'd never run out. I'm obsessed. They're a great shoe to transition in from sandals to cold weather shoes and you'll find yourself wearing them nonstop! They're comfortable AF and last forever! I've had mine for two years and they're still as good as new.

4. Suede Stripe Gucci Crossbody: this is the splurge of these finds but I couldn't not include this beauty! The shape, the colors, the style... It's the most perfect, beautiful fall handbag and if you're looking to treat yourself to something this season, it should 100% be this bag. *heart eyes*

5. Kate Spade Bucket Bag: at first I wasn't quite sure how to feel about the bucket bag trend but the more I see it, the more I love it! This color for fall is beyond words and there's nothing prettier than Kate Spade's pebbled leather. Obsessed!

6. Velvet Bow Scrunchie: and $8 velvet scrunchie that comes in four colors, couldn't be more trendy and looks super cute in your hair?! Give me all of 'em! I love the way these look and love that they're so trendy. Feeling like I'm back in the 90's but not as extreme! Hah!

7. Striped Sweater: this time of year is so weird weather-wise. I'm seriously considering finding somewhere warm to call a second home because I'm not sure how much longer I can take the super cold weather! And for all of you cold weather lovers out there, more power to ya. Once it starts to drop below 30 degrees I'm outtie. Anyway - all that to say this sweater is lightweight and great for when it's still too warm for jackets and scarves, but too cool for tees and sandals. The colors are beautiful and it'll double as your favorite fall AND early spring sweater!

8. YSL Lip Stain: I've never been huge on bold lip colors on myself for some reason. I love buying them, testing them and seeing how gorgeous they look on everyone else though! Lol! One of the very few lip products I love to wear are the YSL lip stains; they're pigmented but not so much so that it looks like you're making a statement with a lipstick and that's what I personally love on myself. They're kind of pricey but last all day long and look and feel really beautiful on. This is #16 and it's the most beautiful shade for fall!

9. Basic White Tee: you can never have enough basic tees! I find myself replacing my white tees every few months and if you're going to do that, this is the perfect option since it's under $10! It's nicely made - not too thin and not too thick - and you'll get so much use out if it, of course! I basically live in cardigans and this is a great tee to wear with one, or you can do a little front knot with a sporty blazer or even wear it alone.

10. Bow Mules: I bought these during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and they are hands down one of my favorite things I bought and one of my favorite pairs of shoes that I own. The color is simply stunning and they are surprisingly comfortable! A lot of reviews have mentioned that they run a bit small but I find them TTS.

These aren't on sale right now, but the black version is! Everyone needs a simple, black shoe for fall - get those here for $51!! They're 60% off!

11. Black Distressed Raw Hem Jeans: lately it's been very hard to resist a pair of jeans if they have a raw hem! Obsessed! These will get so much use and the quality will never not surprise you. They're amazing and only $25!

12. Adidas Hoodie: I shared this hoodie with you guys last week and I love it so much that I bought it in this pretty coral/pink shade! Athleisure is #life. I love dressing up and love fall trends but nothing beats my favorite sporty clothes that are comfortable! ;) This hoodie is the best for running errands, working out in, wearing around the house - endless possibilities. Perfect weight and perfect fit!

13. Layered Coin Necklace: so many of these pretty layered necklaces are SO expensive (for good reason - they are beautiful statement pieces!) but if you're looking for something more affordable, this is it! It's just under $50 and it's delicate and wearable every day, with any outfit. One of my favorite fall outfits - basic tee, cozy cardigan, distressed jeans and a layered necklace like this one!

14. Tortoise Sunnies: while these aren't necessary meant for fall or only to wear this fall, I've been looking for a round shaped pair of sunglasses and these are a winner!
