Above you will see the newest addition to my growing collection of "statement" sweaters or, as I like to refer to them, "bedazzled" sweaters. If you've followed my blog closely, you will remember that I have a twisted love hate relationship with them, but I keep coming back for more. However, I think nothing adds a little "visual" interest to a simple crewneck sweater like some "jewels".
My next fall wardrobe staple are loafers. I don't wear loafers that much on my blog, but trust me, I have a lot. Loafers like these are great with jeans, cropped pants, and I am just now trying to wear them more with skirts. I like to have something a little unique on my loafers, in this case, these "Darby" loafers from J. Crew are sparkly and covered in sapphire colored sequins. I get a lot of people giving me weird looks directed at my feet as I walk by, but I guess that's because I choose to wear shoes in the shape of bunnies, taxi-cabs, or, in this case, sequins on a regular basis!
Full skirts, pleated or otherwise, are another staple. The length is perfect for work, but still sort of fun and youthful at the same time. Plus the bows. I can't get enough of bows. It's kind of my thing.
Last of all, a great clutch. A few years ago I only wore clutches for dressy events, but I have come to appreciate the virtues of a more casual clutch, such as this leather one from Vince Camuto. Plus, this one looks a little like a version that begins with an "H" and is in the five figure range. (I won't name names, but you know who I mean!) Clutches are more practical than you might think and this one fits all of the necessities.
Well, that concludes my musings on some of my favorite staples for fall. I could add more, but this will suffice for now. What are some of the staples in your fall "uniform"?
