9 Fall Transition Essentials You Need

fall essentials
From bell sleeves to utility jackets to mules–there’s an assortment of trends and fall basics that can Β add some serious style and versatility to your wardrobe. I’m still loving jewel tones, camel (forever and ever) and now rusty tones for fall–and anything suede before the snow hits the midwest.




I wore this to work last week. Finally, an outfit that appears more dressed up that I love to wear and am comfortable in. I snagged this dress from Shopbop a couple weeks ago and knew I could easily dress it up or down, so boots and a leather jacket seemed like the perfect pairing. I got a mani the night before and I was trying my hardest to preserve the perfect white nails and it only last for maybe 24 hours before I completely destroyed them.
I got to see my mom last week too (the day I wore this!) and we grabbed a way early dinner at a bar in Coopersville and wandered off to a bakery across the street. The sign was a donut so naturally I was curious and had to go in. I ate two sprinkle donuts. No regrets.

Culottes for Fall

I hate dress pants and when I have to dress up for work, I’ve been slowly finding comfortable, less stuffy versions of something I can wear if jeans won’t fly. Like these culottes feel like pajama pants, but I wore them to client meetings last week.

Apple Land

So I successfully convinced Kyle to visit an orchard to buy apples (a peck of Jonogold and half-peck of Empire) and visit one of my most favorite people on this planet, Dave, who was essentially my FFA advisor in college. His family still owns and operates the orchard and I realized it had been an entire decade since I had last been there. God, I’m old. Dave let Kyle and I taste test some apples before we settled on the most tart varieties.
