Autumn/Winter 2019 Wardrobe Update

October 4, 2019

Fall fashion is finally here, folks. It is my favorite time of year! But, you already know that, and no I don’t mind sounding like a broken record. I already have a lot of pieces I am excited to wear again from last autumn/winter like my white ankle boots and teddy coat. I do not plan to buy a whole lot this season because I simply don’t need it. I have some great pieces in my current wardrobe, patiently awaiting my return. I want to focus my monies on saving, travel and decorating our new place. So, here is a list of items I’ll be re-wearing, and what is on my wishlist. I plan to buy gently used or resale when possible. 

FROM LAST SEASON

& Other Stories Pointed Toe White Booties

I used to be so afraid of white shoes, but I took a chance on a pair of white booties from & Other Stories. They were the perfect addition to my winter wardrobe last year. They look very similar to the Tom Ford ones. They are comfy, stylish and they instantly elevate a simple outfit. Similar pair here. 

Zara Oversized Check Blazer

My husband gifted me this for my birthday last year, and I’ve been in love with it ever since. The fabric is just heavy enough for cooler temps here in LA, and I can wear it with so many items I already have in my closet. Another great style here

Everlane denim

The denim invasion happening in my closet is from Everlane. They just fit so perfectly without getting stretched out over time.  My go-to’s are the Kick Crop in light blue and the Cheeky Straight  Jean in faded indigo. 

& Other Stories Sweaters

I have developed an obsession with their sweaters. The quality is so good and so is the fit. I have two that I am excited to wear this season. One is bubble gum pink and the other chocolate brown. See similar sweaters here and here.

Zara Woven Mini Bag

I can’t stop wearing this it bag. Every time I pull it out, it makes me happy. It is my go-to for nights out. Plus, the removable gold chain makes it versatile for when the evening evolves. Zara needs to drop this again. See similar woven mini bag here

Zara Woven Mini Bag

Uniqlo Women Supima Cotton Stretch Long Sleeve Shirt

Please, Uniqlo, never stop selling this. It is great for tucking in or wearing out. Very comfortable, yet structured, it is a great smart casual white shirt. I alternate between this one and the Everyday Button-Up by Aritizia. 

Zara Skinny Faux Leather Pants

I always make sure I have a pair of leather pants in my fall wardrobe arsenal. I recently purchased these on sale over the summer, and I am excited to start rocking them soon. Zara has a variety of different faux leather styles right now. This trouser is also on my list. 

Zara Teddy Coat

I purchased the tan teddy coat last winter in Spain, and this coat trend is not slowing down anytime soon. It is perfect for cold weather adventures. See similar coat here.

Pull & Bear Black Moto Jacket

No surprise, here. My classic moto makes the cut every year. It has been my staple for the last 10 years. See similar jacket here

WISH LIST

Everlane Boss Boot in Snake print

I’ve been looking for the perfect snake boot since 2018, and Everlane dropped the heat.

Nike Airmax 200

Don’t laugh. I’m kinda sorta starting to get into the dad shoe trend, and these spoke to me as soon as I came across them. 

Oversized Black Blazer

I have a few great blazers that will be in heavy rotation this fall, except the most important one – BLACK!  I am keeping my eyes open for the perfect one.

Dr. Martens

I never thought I’d finally add a pair of these to my wardrobe, but for some reason, I have been jonesing for ‘em.

Faux Leather Skirt

I had an amazing faux leather A-line skirt that I LOVED and wore for the last 4 years from F21, but it started falling apart, and I had to let it go. 

DeMellier London Oslo Bag

I have talked about this bag before in another blog post. It is mine in the name of Jesus! I claim it. LOL.  I am not a big handbag person as I usually wear the same two bags all year-round but Meghan Markle loves it. It is woman-owned, and for every bag you purchase, they fund a set of vaccines and treatments to save the life of a child in need.

Black Everlane Cashmere Crew 

This is another item I need to replace. I love crewneck sweaters, and my black Zara one fell apart after so many years of wear. It’s time for an upgrade! 

I am also selling some shoes on Poshmark that I’ve barely worn over the last couple of years, shop my closet!
