It may be cliché, but no one is going to stop me from playing in a pile of leaves like a crazed 5 year old. Nature is showing off big time and the temps are really dropping. In fact, excuse me while I throw on a third layer because I am stubborn and refuse to turn on the heat in our house yet. (Being raised on a farm, I consider myself pretty tolerant – but I think tonight is going to break my streak!) With Halloween behind us, you need to get serious about sweaters.

If you are finding yourself grabbing for knits, you NEED to add this gorgeous lace-up one to your arsenal. It is casual and cute as they come. Also check out the great distressed denim I listed at the bottom as well as the backpacks – I can’t get over the practicality of this trend. I got mine for last month’s trip to Arizona and I came home and never switched it! It really works for everything! Go ahead, give it. You’ll be glad you did.

The details…


Knits: Try the Fine Gauge Lace-Up Sweater, the Lace-Up Front Ribbed Sweater, the Lace-Up Grommet Sweater or the racey Lea Grommet Top

Denim: Check out the ‘Good Vibes’ Distressed Skinny Jeans or the 721 High-rise Distressed Skinny Jeans

Shoes: Super comfy Sam Edelman Nude Pumps

Backpacks: If you are in the market for a Louis Vuitton backpack, one of the routes I take to save a bit is to purchase them pre-loved HERE from The Real Real. They have lots of fab options so just check back often! I stalk items regularly and am not ashamed.

Here are some similar styles without the scary price tag: The Rockee Suede Backpack, The Julian Backpack and The Ranier Backpack
