Fall Must Haves

I am personally not shopping for Fall for many reasons, mainly because I don’t need new clothes and I live in South Florida (it’s still hot here). I recently did yet another closet cleaning, and now I can see everything that I have clearly (this time I was drastic). I was slightly inspired by Chelsea, she got rid of 75% of her clothes. After I was done, I can say I kept only 3 to 5 pieces that I’m not crazy about, these are special occasions items that I just don’t wear often. Everything else is something I enjoy wearing.

I’m not going to lie, I have a couple things in my wishlist but they are not at all necessary. I do however have plenty of pieces that I am dying to wear again, that are in no way outdated.

Classic Sweaters & Plaid Shirts

I have very few sweaters but a couple years ago, I focused on getting a few basic ones, so that I don’t feel the need to update them often. I think right now I have 4 to 6 plaid shirts and for me that’s a good number. I can wear them now with jeans, skirts and later layered with sweaters and jackets.

Depending on where you live Fall may not be too intense, so a denim jacket can still work. I got an oversized denim jacket as a birthday gift and I must say, I like it a lot more than my regular one above. By the way, my exact plaid shirt is back.

Long Cardigan

These are a must and there’s so many affordable options out there. I got the one above at H&M and it’s still a favorite. I lied when I said I didn’t shop for Fall, because a few weeks ago I caved and got this Chanel-esque cardigan, was planning on returning it but it’s so good. That’s it I swear.


casual blazer and jeans outfit

I have a small blazer collection that I love, they are great for work and can easily be dressed down. Overall just a nice layer for a more structured look.

Teddy Jacket or Vest

These are not at all necessary but they are so cozy. I have the vest because it is more appropriate for South Florida but I also love the pullover versions.


grey adidas sweatshirt outfit

I love sweatshirts, and it’s been so hard not to get all the cute new ones I”m seeing. I do have plenty and I wear them casually, and even over button downs to work. They are so cozy and I prefer them slightly oversized.

Faux Leather Jacket

I had to retire this exact jacket because I wore it to death and it got damaged, but I already have a replacement. These are a must for me, specially for night outs.

This post further proved that I have no business buying anything. No worries, I will keep the fashion related posts coming. As usual, my go-to stores are always Nordstrom, J.Crew, J.Crew Factory, H&M, Zara, Everlane and Gap. Do not sleep on Zara and H&M, yes they are fast fashion stores, but they have a lot of great basics, that you can cherish for years.

I didn’t cover shoes and I will work on another posts. Overall, if you have all of these, great jeans, coats, you are probably ready for Fall as well.
