Over the years, ‘less is more’ really rings true for me with my f/w wardrobe. I’ve learned to focus on collecting quality pieces that I will hold on to forever. My trick has been to sift through my closet this time of year to feel out what is needed for the colder months ahead. Tip: try selling a bevy of unworn items and put that money towards something nice!

From there, I make a list of a few investments to keep an eye out for. I’ll collect a bunch of options and go with my gut on which piece I’ll treasure most and will work best with what I’ve got. This usually entails an amazing pair of boots, a beautiful coat, or maybe a new bag. Since I mainly live in quality layers this time of year, I prefer to go big with the accents!

Some of my go-to brands that I love and trust—IRO (I have a good collection of their jackets at this stage, the best), Totême, Bottega Veneta, Isabel Marant, Anine Bing, Theory, Dear Frances, LOQ, Freda Slavador —to name a few.

Once I narrow down a goal for the seasonal investments I hope to find, I then keep an eye on a handful of favorite affordable shops that are both great quality yet easy on the wallet. I like to buy a couple things to rotate throughout the season. A few places I like to browse regularly—& Other Stories (for great knitwear, coats, and boots!), Sézane (swear by their knitwear), Mango (huge site-wide sale right now!), COS, Aritzia, and Massimo Dutti.

If you’re more in the mood for minimalism this year and just want little things that go a long way… try a new autumnal scent, test drive a few new nail colors, or add something pretty to your jewelry collection. Last year I collected two amazing Anderson’s belts and a cashmere beanie… and I am excited to revisit them this year!

This post is just a starting point to our fall style chats. My annual roundups are coming soon (boot edit is up next!). In the meantime, you can browse my fall/winter shop here… and be sure to take a peek at my Fall Capsule board. x

I can’t forget one of the most important parts of fall/winter shopping… especially amidst 2020…

Lounge!

It’s the time to treat yourself in the lounge department. Cashmere and knit joggers, thick knit socks, fluffy slippers, charming pj sets. ‘Tis the season!

I personally like to have a few joggers on hand—I prefer them over classic sweats if we’re playing favorites. Just because I like the fit and you can wear them out for coffee runs without feeling like a complete slob. No shame though! In 2020 it doesn’t really matter! See my whole lounge shop here
