This is my fall/winter wardrobe. We don't really have a winter here so I can get away with wearing these things through February. The great thing about these pieces is that they all go together so if I'm packing to go somewhere, I just throw them all in a bag without much thought.
I've got two quilted vests that I wear almost everyday. Lands End makes a great affordable quilted vest in fun colors. I have an orange one that I wear over long sleeve t-shirts and yoga pants when I'm just out running errands. I bought the navy quilted J.Crew vest a few weeks ago. I also spotted a bunch of colors in the Talbots catalog last night.
Long Sleeve Tees
Finding a good long sleeve t-shirt is nearly impossible. It needs to be long in the torso, have a little bit of stretch so it keeps shape, have long sleeves (not short long sleeves, you know what I mean?), not shrink, and be affordable. Last year, Target (Mossimo) had a long sleeve shirt that fit the bill perfectly so naturally I bought 15 of them (in black, white, grey & white striped). They have the same shirt again this year but for some reason it has a seam down the middle of the back.
J.Crew Minnie Pants
I love wearing Minnie pants with flats. They're so comfortable especially for riding in the car which is what we seem to do a lot of in the fall. I get mine from the factory store because they seem to have a little more "curve" to them. I stick to black.
Ankle Corduroy Pants
Last year I bought a pair from Lands End because you can customize the length. I thought that was genius and more stores should offer custom lengths! They weren't advertized as ankle pants but I ordered them that way and ended up wearing the heck out of them! This year, they have slim ankle cords in some great colors!
Button up shirt
I love a button up shirt under a vest. Plaid, gingham, I love them all.
I never would have thought I would love a pair of skinny jeans but Banana Republic makes some awesome skinny jeans. The pair that are linked in that set are really thin so they're perfect for stuffing in boots. They are super dark so they're more slimming than any pair with whiskering and they've got a little stretch. They also come in petite so I don't have to get them hemmed.
Speaking of boots, if you don't own Jean Straps you are missing out! They are elastic straps that attach to your pant legs to keep them pulled down while you're wearing boots. Because they're elastic, when you bend your knee your pant leg doesn't pull out. Seriously, if you're duct taping your pants to your sock (I know you do!), do yourself a favor and get some Jean Straps.
Flats & Boots
Duh. What else are you going to be wearing?
Scarves are my accessory of choice. I wear them to work with black dress pants and a long sleeve tee (and every other day). J.McLaughlin makes a great scarf. I spotted a really cute leopard one at Old Navy that I think I'm going to add to my collection. Love sleeve tee
