An ode to fall

Our weather as of late has been cloudy, dreary and cold. As awful as that sounds, it actually makes me excited because it’s a reminder that fall and cooler weather are on their way! Of course, that meant I took advantage of the weather and crafted an early-fall ensemble. Here’s the breakdown:

Blouse: American Eagle via Garage sale (with DIY studs) (similar)
Trousers: J.Crew (similar)
Heels: Nine West via Goodwill
Bag: Vintage Coach via Garage sale
Bracelets: Banana Republic/Nadri (c/o Vogue) 

One of my favorite pieces for fall is a clean, classic trouser. I found these at J.Crew on super sale, and black is truly an ideal color for mixing and matching with everything in my closet. However, I would have loved a raspberry or a mustard color, too. Maybe later on this fall? Also, this is my newest vintage Coach bag that I’ve added to my closet. I paid $10 for it at a garage sale. LOVE!
