Happy Friday loves! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer adventures. We have officially entered into the pre-fall season and I’m counting down the precious moments until Pumpkin Spice Lattes are touching my lips and layers are acceptable. But first things, first – what exactly is pre-fall? Pre-Fall is a smaller capsule collection before the fall collection hits stores. Just like how ‘Resort’ lines hit the stores around the December/January – before you’re officially thinking about spring or vacation. It’s still warm enough for summer clothes, but people are starting to do back-to-school shopping and gearing up for the fall season.
For today’s Friday Favorites, I’m sharing 7 of my favorite pre-fall must-have items that you can stock up on and wear now through the fall season. This means light layers, new statement accessories, and conversation-starting shoes. I know it’s hard to imagine throwing on a light-jacket over your slip dress right now, but the time has come! Let me know what your favorite item is below in the comments, and if I’m missing any of your favorite pre-fall items, share your style secrets with me! TGIF! xo
If you haven’t already noticed on Instagram, kimonos have made a major comeback, and they are here to stay! When it’s too hot for a normal jacket, or you’re looking to spice up your look, a kimono will help you slay the OOTD game.
YES. It’s finally appropriate to wear light jackets! *cue the chorus If you’re a jacket-wearing fiend like me, this item is a must-have in your pre-fall wardrobe. You can’t go wrong with a moto, bomber, camo or denim jacket this season – they’re versatile and lightweight enough for a warm day.
Midi dresses have been a long time love of mine and they’re one of my favorite pieces this season! They’re super versatile to style with and won’t weigh you down during these transition weather months. Add a jacket and boot, and you can easily go from the office to cocktails without having to change!
It’s officially time for you to pull out those brimmed hats. I know we all lived in a baseball cap this summer but now it’s out with the old and in with the new! Brimmed hats are so easy to throw on and for some reason just scream FALL to me.MAROON HAT | BERET | BLACK HAT | GREY HAT | BLACK HAT | GREY HAT
If y’all know me at all by now, you know I’m obsessed with bandanas! On days that I’m keeping things casual and don’t wear a lot of jewelry, I tie a bandana around my neck to top off the look. Also, there are endless possibilities on how to style them – wear it as a scarf, bracelet, or even an anklet!
I am so happy that I can break out my booties again! I prefer booties over heels any day because I can easily run around town in and they’re more durable for a long day on my feet. Style these with a midi dress and kimono and it’s the perfect pre-fall look!
I saved the best for last. I’m offically obsessed with loafer slides. They are the easiest thing to slide on (get it) when I’m in a rush. Now I know we can’t all splurge on the OG Gucci loafers, so I rounded up some of my favorite affordable loafer slides that are must-haves! If you haven’t invested in a pair of these bad boys yet, I suggest you go and buy some now for fall!
