Fall Closet 2014 : The Accessories

Yesterday I debuted the 13 base pieces to add to your closet to mix and match all season long. Today comes the fun stuff; the accessories! I much prefer to shop for accessories, mainly because necklaces, earrings, scarves, etc. always fit and look good. No fitting room strife here, no siree! Keeping in mind the color palette from the Fall Closet, I've picked these add-ons to take your look the extra mile. Don't forget to come back tomorrow when I put it all together into outfits!



Jewelry:

Jules Smith Small Imitation Pearl Hook Earrings  • $39.00
I love this edgy take on a classic pearl earring! The perfect way to femme up an outfit.

Karen London Free Bird Earrings • $80.00
The deep jewel tones make these the quintessential fall earrings!

Anna & Ava Maci Statement Necklace • $28.00
Tasha Natasha Couture Crystal Leaf Statement Necklace • $46.00
Statement necklaces like these are great for glamming up an everyday look.

Bags:

H&M - Leather Bag - Gray  • $79.95
An on-trend bucket bag in the perfect shade of gray!

H&M - Handbag - Black • $34.95
A simple black bag will take you from day to night with no switching out needed.

Shoes:

Unisex Adidas® Gazelle sneakers • JCrew • $65.00
Comfy sneaks are a must must must.

Lucky Brand Women's Allways Two Piece Flats  • $49.99
I have fallen in love with these and need to purchase asap!

Sol Sana Toni Boots • Anthropologie • $126.00
Another item in the perfect shade of gray. It's not easy to find a gray boot that looks luxe without a $500 price tag, and I think this one has done the job well!

Jacket:

Women's Moto Jacket Black - Mossimo • Target • $44.99
The streamlined cut and minimal detailing on this moto jacket keeps it from looking too cheap. Would love to see this in person.

Scarf:

ASOS Scarf In Gray Plaid Check  • Asos • $30.32
I just ordered this big ol' scarf for myself and can't wait to wrap up in it all season.

Fall Closet 2014 : 13 Perfect Fall Pieces to Mix and Match

Okay everyone, it's here! My fall capsule wardrobe for 2014. I really hadn't been in the mindset because it has still been pretty warm here, but October is almost over so I needed to get on with the show! Originally I planned on doing mostly black, white and gray, but that got boring quick. Everyone needs a little color in their lives. Falling in love with this blue buffalo plaid top definitely helped.

This year I have picked 13 main clothing pieces for the capsule, and have made an extra category for accessories, jackets and shoes, which I will blog tomorrow. 

Below are my top 13 picks for pieces to add to your fall wardrobe. Later this week I will be rolling out all the different outfits I made from these pieces. Enjoy!

PS- Check out all my previous capsule wardrobes right here!



Tops:

Flannel shirt in brilliant sea check • J.Crew • $89.50
You can read all about my blue buffalo plaid experience here, along with more options. I found a more affordable optional at Kohl's, which is currently sold out online, but check your local store! One of my local stores was chock full of them.

Ultrasoft Turtleneck Sweater - Mossimo • Target • $22.99
A simple, sleek black turtleneck to layer is one of my must-haves.

Mossimo Supply Co. Long Sleeve Button Down Shirt • Mossimo • $24.99
A gal can never have too many fall flannels, and I love the elbow patches on this one! More colorways available as well.

Piperlime Collection Mix Print Blouse • Piperlime • $98.00
A pretty blouse for fall will soften any look, and is also great for layering. The pretty florals and painterly plaid paired together (say that 5 times fast) on this blouse is just lovely. I am definitely looking out for a sale on this before I buy though! Pretty pricey.

Sweaters:

Tracklist Side-Zip Pullover • Madewell • $69.99
A side-zip sweater was another wish-list item I blogged about here. I actually bought and then returned the Gap version listed in that post. It was really boxy and unflattering. I think I will go the sweater route instead of the sweatshirt route. This olive option from Madewell is a nice addition of color to the closet.

Piperlime Collection Leoprint Print Cardigan • Piperlime • $89.00
Don't miss my other selections from my fuzzy sweater postI think this leopard cardigan makes a great outer layer.

Piperlime Collection Drapey Sweater Jacket • Piperlime • $98.00
I like this cross between a sweater and a jacket. The perfect piece to grab and throw on over anything on a chilly morning.

Turtleneck sweater tunic • Gap • $51.99
A long, chunky, gray turtleneck is also high on my fall wishlist. So cozy!

Vest:

Excursion quilted vest • J.Crew • $120.00
I know everyone and their mom has these, but they really are a great piece to throw on for extra warmth. Out of all the quilted vests I have tried on, the Jcrew versions are the most flattering. They are cut well and aren't too puffy. Check the outlet for better prices.

Bottoms:

Grey Jeans Legging - Mossimo® • Target • $27.99
A must have for the gray monochromatic looks that are hot for fall!

Knit Leggings • Madewell • $34.50
I purchased a pair of these this year, and they are a great quality for the price. Nice and thick, holds you in up top, and doesn't slouch by the end of the day.

Toothpick jean in destructed miller wash • J.Crew • $130.00
A slightly distressed pair of denim will give you that worn look without the cold from actual holes! I get cold so easily, so I have to completely stop wearing my distressed boyfriends in the fall/winter. (Hello icy drafts! Yikes!)

Dress:

Women's 3/4 Sleeve Flannel Dress - Cherokee • Target • $29.99
A flannel shirt dress? Yeas please! Love this black and white version, but the red plaid version is also a winner.

Weekend Finds



I have both E & J perfume rollers and love them. I usually wear the white during the day and the black at night. Or sometimes even a mix of both, as they were made to compliment each other. They recently came out with perfume oils and it totally intrigues me:


Piperlime recently came out with their own collection. It's a little strange as far as pricing goes. Sweaters are around the same price as tops and blouses, which I don't think is right. At any rate, I really love these two sweaters:


Digging the pale gray and camel paired together on this satchel from Gap:


The packaging got me on these. I believe I read somewhere this brand is from the makers of Hard Candy. Remember that polish from junior high years? Smith & Cult has a small, but nicely curated selection of colors :


Python print is a must-have this season. Start with these fun Vans:
