Must-Haves Accessories for Fall – Under $100

We are now in it – that crisp air, those early morning brisk walks to the car – yes, fall has arrived in all of its glory. As those glorious months of summer are now in the past I do find myself searching for that chunky, cozy scarf, that oversized sweater, leggings and riding boots. Now THAT is fall! I think investing in a few, neutral, classic accessories is not only smart for this season but for seasons to come. The pieces that are below are not only timeless – they are within budget, all under $100! (ok, the sunnies are right at the $100 mark…) You will get so much use and wear out of these items because they can be matched with so much of your wardrobe – versus trendy pieces that really only go with certain outfits. What are your fall must-haves? What are you most looking forward to wearing as the cold weather creeps up on us? Here’s a little more info on the fabulous accessories in my fall picks:
1. Leith Mixed Media Infinity Scarf, Nordstrom, $28
2. Michael Kors Tortoise Shell Bangle, Macys, $95
3. Fendi sunglasses, Amazon, $100
4. Sweater socks, Free People, $20
5. Classic length leather gloves, Lord & Taylor, $60
6. Wool felt fedora, Sole Society, $40
7. All the above accessories will thank you for purchasing this one – keep your skin and lips looking and feeling great with this Burt’s Bees kit, Debenhams, $21
Must-Have Fall Accessories

Give Yourself a Pop of Color

Something happens to me at this time of the year. It happens every year, actually. As the crisp days of autumn approach us here in the northeast our days get shorter…and darker. My wardrobe seems to take a hint from the chilly weather and also goes dark. During these next few months, when I enter my closet, its like all I see are grays and blacks. I am drawn to them like peanut butter is drawn to chocolate, like mint chocolate chip ice cream is drawn to a warm waffle cone. Sorry, I digress.  I think the thick grayish clouds inspire me to want to be dressed just as they are…but I can’t wear grays and blacks EVERY day till April, can I? Well no, not without a pop of color. To avoid looking totally goth or appearing like I’m dressed for a funeral everyday I need to inject a bold burst of color into my solemn wardrobe. For this season, I think eggplant, ruby, lime, canary and cobalt blue are some of my favorite wow colors that can really spice up an otherwise boring outfit. These colors can take clothing from totally drab and dull to hip and wow! Take a look at some of these pics, hopefully they will inspire you to jazz up your own wardrobe with some hot pops of color during this season!
