Fall Palette

It's officially pumpkin patch season so I'm embracing my basic, fall obsessed vibes and checking off fall bucket list items. On Saturday I went to a pumpkin patch and had so much fun sippin' apple cider, exploring the pumpkin patch and eating apple cider donuts.  I found the cutest pumpkin in the patch that matched my sweater! Afterwards we went to a winery and did a wine tasting. I had the perfect fall day doing one of my favorite fall activities. When I got home I knew it was time to cook everything with pumpkin

I've been doing some online shopping to pull together all the colors I like to wear in the fall: burnt orange, plum, taupe. Everyone needs a pair of taupe booties, they've been in style for the past few years. The pair I'm wearing in the photo is peep toe with a high block heel that I bought last year which I thought was the perfect shoe. But to be honest, I've only worn them a few times last season so I need another pair that is more versatile so I can wear it for a longer period of time. I really want a wedge heel because I feel it makes wearing a boot look more feminine. I'm really drawn to a suede grey/taupe color over a cognac brown.

Everyone needs a pair of ripped jeans and a corduroy skirt in a harvest color. A long cardigan is another must. Have you heard of the Third Piece Rule? If you count your shirt and pants as your first and second pieces, then you add a third piece to your outfit (not counting shoes), that third piece makes your outfit more put together and polished.  Your third piece can be a cardigan, vest, belt, or statement necklace. That third piece adds the finishing touch to any outfit to transform it from boring to fab. Not only do cardigans pull together any outfit, it's great for transitional weather months.

My favorite sweater brand is Free People. They're pricey but are so stylish! I'm not a fan of how they style their sweaters on their website because they usually tuck them in so you can't see how long they are and go for a boho look. But the weave, knit and cut of their sweaters is what stands out for me. My mother used to knit all my sweaters as a child so I appreciate quality. They have a store in Georgetown if you want to see it in person.

This is basically my fall capsule collection of clothes below.
