Beanie - I LOVE baggie/skater beanies for the fall and winter. Though I'm not so sure if I've love them as much without my long locks, but I'll still wear them anyway :)

Coat - You know me and oversized/menswear styles. This has become one of my key staples for the cool weather. I bought a thicker one from Zara last year and made a thinner one (see on my instagram!) from that design.

"Chelsea" ankle boots - I prefer pointed toe shoes, especially with heels. I feel like it gives it more of a feminine touch. And it certainly gives me more confidence in my walk! Just purchased these from Zara and I can't wait to get them in!!

Butter London Polish in Union - You guys are going to think I'm completely nuts, but I've been buying nail polishes of every shade for years, but only wearing one or two colors..Black and White lol I tried this polish while it was on sale at Marshalls and fell in LOVE! It's so smooth, dries instantly and only requires one coat! Too bad I just missed the buy one get one free sale at Ulta :( Read those magazines they send you ladies!

Chanel Coco Rouge - This is by far the best lipstick out there! I always get my lipsticks for free at MAC with Back to MAC and if I'm in a hurry to get one, I usually go with whats second best and conveniently at the drug stores..Revlon Super lustrous. But I strongly suggest investing in the Ballet Russe color this Fall!

Leather Pants - Really? Is there a need for description?! All day, every day if I could ;)

Oversized chunky turtlenecks - These are really hot this year, but for some reason I can only find them sold for $$$ (Acne, Artzia, even Asos) So instead I checked my local Goodwill and boy did I find some good ones! I highly recommend checking them out there- even in the guys department! That's where you'll find the oversized anyway ;)

Over-the-knee boots - Another hot item this Fall are these boots! I've always had a thing for thigh highs and a little skin showing, but with all the creeps out there in this world it's hard to dress like that :( So carrying pepper spray while wearing these (if you don't already carry on anyway!)

Converse - I still wear mine from middle school is that not crazy!!! lol Did anyone else go through an "Emo" stage in school? Well, bring them out of your closet and pair them with some leather skinnies and duster coat!

Daniel Wellington - My love. Best dollar ever spent! You will not regret this investment. Watches are pretty much the only jewelry piece I wear most days...but don't ask me what time it is lol

What about you guys? What are you're Fall Favorites?!

Photo credit: the hubs ;) We road our bikes around town and stopped for dinner and drinks. I've got a "grown up" excitement about riding bikes now. Before I used to love riding through my parents old neighborhood chasing down the ice cream truck and now I'm riding in town to pick up things from the store and grabbing a drink at the Carolina Ale house up the street! I loved how chilly it was outside! Perfect for a chunky knit and Woodchuck :)
