Fall Favorites

GUYS, Louisiana is having a cold front this week, meaning we're no longer in the 90s, and the crisp morning breeze has me in such a fall mood! I'm stocking up on all my basic layering pieces and finally getting to break a few out, so I thought I'd share them with you. 
Since I'm now an alum of Chi Omega, I've tried to stop wearing so many Chi O tshirts, but really just tshirts in general. That baggy tent look is great on campus, but I work more than I actually have class now, so I've moved to more structured, albeit still relaxed options. Gap and Old Navy have some great classic options, but I've found the Gap ones hold up a bit better. Their soft spun knit tanks are AMAZING and I now have one in every color. They're super soft and the high cut on the neck is very flattering. Plus, they wash well and don't shrink. The striped tee is another winner because it has a curved hem, great for leggings, but is very light and breezy. Great for layering when it gets a bit cooler, but perfect for going to class now when it's still 80+ in Louisiana.
I just got these mid-rise ripped up black jeans from Old Navy and I have already made them a fall staple. I love that they rough up my uber preppy look a bit and they're SO comfy. With a basic tee and a pair of Chelsea boots I'll be good to go. 
If I'm honest, besides Gap, I do all my shopping at Nordstrom lately. I love J.Crew, but there's just not much variety there. With the free shipping and free returns, there's no risk at Nordstrom...plus they have everything! I've already blogged about this green corduroy skirt, but this neutral suede one is calling my name. I tried to buy a suede dress and it looked WAY too 70s hippy on me, but I think this skirt is the perfect "trendy but still classic" look I'm going for. 
I just got this white tee shirt from Nordstrom last week and I've worn it so many times already. It is very see through, but it's super soft and flowy without being shapeless. I actually wore it tucked into my green corduroy skirt for dinner and it looked just as good as worn casually with my ripped jeans. Win win. 
As far as accessories go, I'm still trying to convince myself to buy a pair of Raybans. I love this Erika style and the tortoiseshell color, but my goodness I'd never forgive myself if I lost them. 
On the boots front, I LOVE the look of these Chelsea boots. I've been looking for a good, well made pair that won't break the bank since I came back from England and I think I finally found them. The cut and color are so basic and simple that I think they'd pair well with anything in my closet. The Calypso boots are another recent purchase. I'm not so sure about these, so we'll have to see when they come in what they'll look like on, but I love the idea. They lighten up a dark fall wardrobe so well and I think they'd make a good alternative to my Tory Burch leather riding boots. 
All in all, I love the comfy laid back look for fall. I think an easy white tee with leggings and boots and a cute scarf is so precious and I can't wait for cooler weather to wear that all the time. I love the emerald greens and soft suede looks this fall, as if you can't tell, and I can't wait to *hopefully* document some of my favorite outfits with my new camera. We shall see!
