Happy Monday Pumpkin Spice Latte Day!! (Yes that’s right… the PSL is back at Starbucks today.) If that doesn’t signal the official start of fall, I don’t know what does! That’s why I’m bringing you my favorite fall basics today… the items that are the building blocks for essentially every fall outfit you can imagine. 
First, we have the perfect white blouse: great for layering with vests, blazers, cardigans, or worn by itself. This one is PERFECT because it’s nice and flowy, but still fits in all the right places (I’m wearing an XS!). The next fall basic is a pair of distressed black denim like the pair I’m wearing from Rag & Bone. They are not too ripped, just a little bit at the knees, which is exactly what I was looking for. Let me also say that these are THE most comfortable pants I’ve ever put on my body! When I say obsessed, I really am obsessed. These are going to be really “in” this fall, mark my words! Last but not least, a good fur vest is a must-have for any woman’s fall wardrobe. I love this textured vest because it’s so unique (and it’s really soft). In the above photos I’m showing the same look with and without the vest (so you can get a better look at the blouse). 
All three of these basic pieces can be found in the Americana collection at Nordstrom… so be sure to check there for even more fall basics!

  12. I love this! And it's easily adaptable for someone who can't wear heels all the time. I have to sub in flats because I have a four year old to keep up with, but I can do the rest. I love it!

  34. Fall is my most favorite time of the year. Your outfit is really cute on you. That white blouse is pretty and feminine. Love the back of it, too. I popped over to Nordstrom to take a look. Great vest and fun leopard pumps. And, that lipstick is beautiful on you. Perfect Fall outfit!

  42. This looks great. I always struggle with vest and what size to get. Is this your usual size you wear? For reference can you tell me the size. Would you say the vest should be more fitted or loose?
