Late Fall Fashion Essentials

If there’s one part of fashion I do well, it’s fall fashion. As a born and bred New Englander, I am more used to the colder months than I am the warmer ones. What I consider fall weather lasts from September to (sometimes) December up here. And in New England, the cold weather in general lasts from October to April, and sometimes even May.

So now that we’re in this colder weather, I thought I would share my fashion essentials for this time of year. This post was originally going to be a lot longer, but my arthritis decided to be an asshole yesterday – to the point where I’m not taking the GRE today and I’m supposed to – so this is where we’re at. I’m hoping to do another post about accessories and such in a week or two.

Let me know what your fashion essentials are!

Note – some of the items are actually on sale and cheaper than the price I have listed here.

    I just bought the pixie pants from Old Navy and I LOVE them! I should probably buy a few more pairs because I wear them almost every day.

    Cardigan and those light scarves are definitely my fall essentials. Especially when it's not cold enough for a heavy jacket I love throwing those on over a t-shirt. Love all of your picks!
