Fall Buys!

Autumn is right around the corner, and there's no season I like better than fall! The turning of the weather, the orange-drenched sunsets, the crisp smell in the air, and of course autumnal style is right up my alley!

Soon, I will begin another year-long hiatus from shopping, more to come. So, I've been stocking up on garments for the fall/winter. Here are some of my best finds:

First up, dresses!

What's more fall, than a plaid shift? Loving the color palette of grey and pink, which will transition into winter and early spring of 2017. #stylestrategy

Do I already have several LBDs? Yes, but I don't have a really quality black sweater-dress with pockets. Pockets are key!

This midi-shift is definitely outside my usual style wheelhouse. I'm loving the 30's-esque print and the flared sleeves, I see them poking out of a navy blazer come fall.

Can one have too much plaid? Hell's to the no! This shirtdress-tunic hybrid is giving me 90's teenage nostalgia realness (!!!) and while it's a bit cazh for the office, I see this getting a lot of weekend use with leggings and boots.

And of course, you need a few pairs of trousers:

These are similar to a pair of navy satin culottes I picked up at ridiculous mark-down over the summer. I'm not sure how practical a culotte will be post-October, but I HAVE THEM and I think they'll get some play at a holiday gathering, or two.

I love Gap cords. I have a pair in red, seen here, that are currently hanging tight as my body continues in it's transition towards pre-pregnancy form. In the mean time, I'll have to satiate my need for ribbed pants with this navy, "baby" boot-cut pair.

And of course I've picked up more Uniqlo pull-on pants. These trousers have served me so well. They are comfortable, functional, flattering, and stylish! I, of course, got a pair in plaid, while these bird-printed pants are my poetic swan song to summer. As the birds migrate south leaving behind grey skies, so will my pants signal a fond farewell to the care-away days of summertime. DAMN I LOVE FALL! 

On a practical note:

This crossbody bag is a replacement to one I've had for years that's been falling apart. Seen here.

Blazers are so my jam, and what fall wardrobe would be complete without one? This version is a bit boxy, and I think will pair sickeningly with the bird pants above. Plus, more pockets! 

This pintucked popvoer is a fem alternative to the standard button-downs that I usually sport. Hoping this version will be less gap-prone at the bust than my menswear-inspired shirts have been. Again, body still in transition...the joys of motherhood.... 

And for some fun:

From the men's department, this galaxy-sleeved sweatshirt is so f*cking cool! And fun, and I can't live off plaids, pintucks, and practical pants alone, now can I? What are some of your favorite fall finds?
