Fall Finds: Plaid, Fall Skirts, Capes, and Wool Panama Hats
Since coming back from the perfect summer weather of New Orleans, it feels like fall is officially really here. I found myself feeling a little unprepared, did you? I went from wearing a few fall things to suddenly needing an extra layer in the mornings and even later.
I've gotten many requests for personal shopping so I know lots of you are panicking about not having the clothes you want to be wearing for fall. Here's my thought: look through your clothes to see if you already have some fall basics, the things that are in style every fall. If not, I've got some affordable ideas for you. But don't feel like you need an entirely new wardrobe every season-that can get very expensive! Instead, look for basics that last year to year and top them off with a few fun pieces.
Skirts and Tights. An easy way to transition to fall is by adding tights. I say that because we all know that-but sometimes in looking through my clothes I forget the basics. An outfit like this is perfect for fall, and all it is is layered basics in the same color scheme.

Fall hats. Speaking of trendy, an easy way to feel extra fallish this season is with a hat. The wool Panama is an easy way to do it, but I do recommend that you try this on to see how it suits you. I've yet to find one that didn't feel too huge for my head, even though strangely I had a straw Panama that I loved. Try it with your hair down, hair in a side bun, in braids, etc. to see if changing that can make one of these hats work for you. You'll find them all over, including Nasty Gal, Sole Society, Asos, and beyond. I've seen them at those random kiosks at train stations and even airports so keep your eyes open.
