Fall Essentials

Juicy Couture Leather Jacket, Asos Leather Jacket, Quicksilver Leather Jacket

A leather jacket is a must-have item in one’s closet. I have two, a carmel colored one similar to the Asos one above and a black Zara one. Leather jackets can be expensive, but they are a good investment and you can keep it for forever if you buy a good one that will last, which is what I recommend doing. Since they can be pricey, try asking for one for your Birthday/Christmas/etc or save your money for one. 

Mother Corduroy Pants, Hudson Skinny Corduroy Pants, J Brand High-rise Corduroy Pants

I love corduroy because it can be dressed up or down. I have a pair of J Brand skinny corduroy pants that I wear religiously when it’s cold out. Mostly because they are super comfy, but also because I can dress them up for work or pair them with a sweatshirt on a lazy day. Also, how delicious are those pumpkin colored Mother corduroy pants? That color is amazing!

Piperlime Blazer, TopShop Boyfriend Blazer, J. Crew Wool Blazer

Blazers are a great way to polish off an outfit. I like taking a top that I would wear out at night with friends, put a blazer over it with some black skinny jeans and wear it to work or class. You look professional, but fun at the same time. I like to wear colored blazer like the TopShop one above. It will add a nice pop of color to your outfit without being too loud for Fall.

I couldn't agree more on these fall essentials! The leather jacket is the one item I don't have in my closet! That will be changing.

Would love for you and anyone else to stop by my blog and help support my Breast Cancer Awareness month cause! Thanks for caring and saving the ta-tas!

I got a Mackage leather jacket and it was SO worth it despite the steep price tag!

I'm all about the blazers and leather jackets! The corduroy pants I'm not so sure I'll pull them off, but I'l try some on!

I love blazers and I admit that I don't own a leather jacket, but I'm thinking of buying one!

Cara October 5, 2011 at 3:42 pm

Definitely 3 essentials this season, I've got the leather jacket and cords off my list, but I do need to get my hands on a fun new blazer!

I'm with you on the cords…just bought a great camel color pair at forever 21 actually – the fit seems to get better and better at that store!


Kelsey October 5, 2011 at 4:14 pm

Ohhh cords are the best. I haven't gotten a new pair in a few years…maybe that'll be added to my wish list!
I have a vintage leather jacket that I wear with everything in the fall. Just love it!


Sammie October 5, 2011 at 5:55 pm

I want a leather jacket!




Antonia October 5, 2011 at 6:43 pm

Leather jacket and blazer are must have for me! :D




Christina October 6, 2011 at 12:07 am

I love the cords – for some reason, I always associate that type of pant with fall!

I also really like the blazers, especially the one from J.Crew. They are a bit pricey but I think a great blazer is also a wonderful investment – I have a brown wool one from the Gap that I bought two years ago and still wear it to work all the time!

I definitely agree on all your essentials! Love me some blazers and cords!



Karen October 7, 2011 at 1:41 am

This is great! I definitely need a blazer! … And a leather jacket would be amazing :)

I love the high-waisted corduroy pants. Would love a pair. I've been looking for a motorcycle jacket and boots for a few years. They are my must have for fall, with a hot coat and cape.

totally agree with the blazers and jackets!! :)
