Falling for Fashion

I like to try out all different things when it comes to fashion. Sometimes I buy on trend and other times I go for more timeless pieces. I always describe my style as timeless with a twist and a dash of prep. Here is what I am loving/inspired by for fall 2012:

Desert wedge bootie. You can find this look at any price point. The reason that I love these shoes is because they are not only comfortable, but also versatile. Plus, you can hide a warm sock without anyone knowing! These are really versatile because you can wear them with anything and everything-- I love pairing them with cuffed denim and skirts!

Cartier is known for making the classic tank watch (it was a favorite of Jackie O), however, a lot of companies make a similar style. Being the watch connoisseur that I am, of course I would rather have the Cartier, but my post grad budget does not support the several thousand dollar price tag... one day! This is a classic, timeless watch, so it is worth to invest in a good brand. The above Bulova has a lot of the characteristics of the tank watch (think small rectangular face with bracelet band) but only runs at about $200.

I've certainly blogged about the Barbour Beaufort before. This is a wardrobe staple and is truly an investment piece that should last you a good 10 years. It looks great with anything casual and pairs fabulously with tartans.

Speaking of plaid, these are a few of my favorite tartans for this fall season that are totally fun in small doses (but I even like plaid in large doses!).

I am loving structured bags. While I love the look of some "slouchy" bags, structured bags make it so easy to store things and find them without having a mess of pouches floating around. I just ordered the above Kate Spade bag in a tan shade and cannot wait until it arrives. Pink Tulips, which I've previously blogged about has some great structured bag options as well. 

Scroll through for more of my picks for fall... Peplum, plaids and a punchy orange shade! What are you loving for fall? Have a fabulous day!

I'm pretty sure once it gets cold enough, I just hide in my Barbour everyday! Loving the wedge boots too

Did you see the collaboration Barbour did with Liberty over at JCrew. Perfect!
