Five Fall Basics

With a baby on the way (like any day) and finances being a bit tighter now that I am not working full time I know my wardrobe purchases will be far and few between. I still want to make sure that I invest in myself and add quality timeless pieces when I can. Us momma's deserve some lovin' too! 

Now that September is here I've rounded up five items that I'll be sure to keep my eye on this fall season. I really want to try my hardest to not purchase anything besides these 5 key pieces. I'll have to see how my pre pregnancy clothes fit before I make any promises. I'm sure I'll add some more to the list (like jeans, my skinnies might not fit like they used to). But like I said, I want to keep it as lean as possible. Good quality basics! I'll keep you all updated as I make my way through the list.

I really can't wait for this Florida summer heat to disappear. Jeans, sweaters, and booties are calling my name! Can you hear that?...

1 // Warby Parker 'Collis' Frames - The last time I've had a new pair of glasses was about four years ago. I know my prescription has changed, so it's definitely time for an update! I love the quality and pricing of Warby Parker. Now that we have a store in Tampa, it's a ton of fun to go try on frames and I love that I can order them right then and there!

2 // Madewell x Biltmore Fedora - I purchased a Madewell x Biltmore fedora last fall and love it so much. It fits great, and the quality is amazing. I definitely want to add this 'forest moss' style to my collection!

3 // J. Crew Sadie Snakeskin Flats - I love, love, love anything with a snakeskin print. It's super easy to style (a basic in my book) and adds a pop of print to an otherwise neutral look. I can already picture myself styling these with black skinnies and a classic white button down. Plus, J. Crew flats fit my foot really well. 

4 // Dolce Vita Black Ankle Boot - I had a pair of black booties that I've worn the past two years and finally had to throw them out a few months ago. Thy were worn out and very loved. This Dolce Vita pair is the first pair I have seen in awhile that I fell in love with. I love the pointed toe, and the minimal heel. Black booties are always an essential in anyone's closet! 

5 // Madewell Black Transport Tote - I've had this tote on my wish list for the past year. It will definitely be my first purchase for the fall season. I plan on using it as my diaper bag as well. I don't want lug around two bags. I have a large Baggu pouch that I will use to put her things in so it all stays organized inside. I did buy her a canvas backpack that we will use for her when she stays with family or for traveling. But for everyday, this will be my purse/diaper bag. I can't wait to order it! 

Well, that's it for now. What do you have on your fall wishlist? Let me know in the comment section below! Maybe there's something I just absolutely HAVE to add! ;)
