5 Cozy Fall Fashion Essentials

5 Cozy Fall Fashion Essentials

Everybody knows that fall is the best time to dress for. The weather is getting colder, which means we have the freedom to wear cute articles of clothing and accessorize as we please. For today’s post I wanted to share with you all the items of clothing that I’ve started incorporating into my wardrobe for the fall time.

Boots:

What is fall without heeled boots? Boots spice up literally any outfit. You can wear them with dresses, pants, shorts, just any outfit you could think of. Ankle boots are my go-to footwear during this entire season, but there’s one pair in particular that I’m really loving lately:

These boots have been with me for two years now. You saw them in my Fall Haul (Pt. 2) matched with a gorgeous yellow sweater. Well, here they are again because they automatically Autumn-up anything. The heel is slightly higher than most of the boots I usually wear, which I like. They’re pointed toe as well, so they’re perfect for a witch’s costume, which I’m considering for this Halloween. These boots were made for walking (over fallen leaves of course).

Boots like these are simply a must-have. The heel, the pointed toe, and the color is just the epitome of what Autumn is all about. There are actually really comfortable too. They stretch to put on, so there’s no annoying zippers to mess around with. Click on the picture above to find a similar pair to these!

Cardigans:

Cardigans are so easy to throw on to elevate an outfit. I love over sized cardigans like the one pictured above. They’re so cozy for lounging around in the house to read a book, walking around shopping, or bundling up on the ride to school. I’ve had this one for some time now, but never got to put it to good use until recently due to the weather. I feel like fall isn’t really fall if you don’t feel the need to carry around a blanket like jacket or sweater. If you want a similar one (but in a burnt orange color), just click on the image right up there.

Thigh high socks:

Thigh high socks have been a staple for me these past few weeks. Honestly, I started wearing these because it’s that time of year again where I keep forgetting to shave my legs. There’s a good hack for you. If you forget one too many days of shaving but you really want to wear that dress, find some cute thigh high socks. They are such an essential this season because they make it so easy to keep wearing certain pieces such as dresses or shorts. They also help warm you up because if you wear tight skinny jeans (like me), you can easily pull these over them to add a little style and some extra coziness to your look.

Mittens:

My hands get so cold during this time of year that my fingers have actually turned blue before. I’ve decided to do my hands a favor and dig out a pair of gloves that I’ve been knowing I had but never put to use.

Mittens are like, the ultimate cozy accessory. There are so many cute ones out there at almost any store right now. I really like these plain white ones because they could match any outfit, but I’m looking to invest in some other pairs as well. I personally don’t like those mittens where the tips of the fingers are cut off. Like I get it, but I just always found them to be useless because that’s like, the coldest part of my hand. You can find them at Walmart or Target, but whatever you do, get yourself a pair.

High-waisted Sweatpants:

Ever since I found these high-waisted sweatpants I haven’t wanted to take them off. I’ve worn them 3 times since buying them like, last week. I can’t help it. They are honestly so comfy. They have the effortless cool vibes that joggers provide you, along with the flattering aspect of being high-waisted. To me personally, I didn’t like sweatpants because they don’t flatter my figure at all. Now that I’ve discovered these, I’m determined to start a collection. I got these cozy ones cheap at my local Walmart.

These are super easy to pair anything with. You could wear these with a sweater, t-shirt, tank top and cardigan, the opportunities are unless with this piece. Boots, running shoes, and VANS look amazing also. I’m looking to invest in more styles of the exact same pant, so let me know if you find any.

 

Well that’s all for this post, folks! I hope reading this keeps your fall vibes going. I love being comfy and cozy, which everyone should be. Until next time,

Fall Haul (Pt. 2)

Everyone, I have a confession to make. I am a shopaholic.

I know. Who would’ve guessed? Well, probably my boyfriend.

Last Monday I showed you some new pieces I bought over the weekend. Wednesday I showed you some looks from a new eyeshadow palette I got. And Friday I was sick… but here we are Monday and as promised, I have Part 2 of my Fall Haul ready to go for y’all. Brace yourself. This is one of my best shoots yet.

This haul was created to highlight the new items I bought from Forever 21. Unfortunately, this post is not sponsored.

Starry Day:

Yellow, we meet again. And I see you brought your old pals mom jeans and ankle booties. How clever of you.

This color yellow is a more vibrant hue than I would normally shoot for. But as soon as I laid eyes on it, I fell for the stars. It was unique. It was dramatic. And it’s super soft.

The purple boots balance this look perfectly. This is an ideal example of how contrasting colors can really bring an outfit together. The top and the jeans are both from Forever 21. I’m back on my high waisted craze.

Queen B:

Queen of damn near everything and it’s about time y’all recognize. You all saw this killer crop top in my last Haul post because I just got it. I saw the fishnets online and immediately thought of this top and thus the outfit was born.

Fishnets were really trending starting in the spring, and over the summer. However, I’m FINALLY jumping on the band wagon, just as everyone else is hopping off. I do not mind that at all. The fishnets look so good under these jeans, the crop top lets them peep through on my midsection, and your girl slays. As usual.

This look totally gives me 90’s grunge mixed with modern high end style vibes. It’s the fishnets combined with the GUCCI rip off and the heels that do the trick. I’m in awe. This was definitely one of my favorite outfits.

As the weather slowly changes from scorching hot to mildly chilling, a look like this is perfect to transfer from day to night. The crop top is not too much, the jeans are loose fitting, and the entire fit is comfy. Ahhhhhhh!!! I need more cropped hoodies!

Vintage Babe:

Vintage has never been a style I go for. It just wasn’t anything I was into. I loved grunge and girly things in high school, but slowly I find myself bouncing between vintage and streetwear looks, or mix matching the two. For the look above, I kept the fishnets on, changed into my HUF shirt that I also got last weekend, and changed my jeans….

LOOK AT THESE JEANS!!! You can see from my face how comfy they are. They’re two toned, the left leg being the medium wash and the right leg being the light wash. I admire these jeans.

The reason this look reads as vintage is because I get the vision of a mom taking two completely different colored jeans, having to sew them together and hand them down for their kid. I love it. A piece like this would usually be completely out of my comfort zone, but I’m into it.

If pants aren’t your thing, F21 has a skirt and I believe a jacket version just like these. I hope these become a major trend. Go get your piece for they’re all gone.

Moto Baddie:

I am warning y’all right now, do not sleep on me this season.

Red and yellow are calling my name, but burnt orange will always be my fave. The jacket, the jeans, the boots, I got it all honey. You need it too.

The jacket is the Red Moto jacket from Forever 21. Every girl deserves a nice faux leather jacket, and while it used to be that black was the staple, I am living for this red one. Dare to stand out my ladies.

I used my hand painted boots to bring this look together. If you love these booties as much as me, fear not, they will soon be up for sale on my Depop. I got you covered, don’t worry.

Thank you for reading. I hope you loved this post as much as I loved putting it together for y’all. Shoutout to Cassidy for taking these super awesome photos for me.

If you’re enjoying these hauls/ mini lookbooks, let me know. They’re one of my favorite things to do. Let these looks inspire you this season. I’d love to see any recreations you come up with.

Until next time,

Fall Haul 

Recently I have been on the no spending game. Like maybe I bought food and school supplies, but I NEED those things. So for a few months it was “no new clothes”, “no new makeup”, and it was also closet purging time. So I ended up with literally nothing. I didn’t have any new looks to show y’all because I had no new clothes, and most importantly, no inspiration. Well last week, I said “you know what, I deserve to let loose.” And I took myself on a shopping spree. Today’s post is Part. 1 of 2. The next part will come next Monday.

This adorable mustard shirt I got at Pacsun. I love the color, which I never thought I would. I hatteedd, I mean absolutely despised the color yellow, but it’s hitting me hard this season. The little pocket in the front is cute, even if I’ll never use it.

Shirts like these I don’t usually go for because they’re just plain. I’m more drawn to graphic tees because I feel it is so much easier to translate your true self when wearing them. But a shirt like this is good for layering, which will be a must(ard) this season.

The next thing is probably my fav:

This is the only Huf shirt I own. The pale pink and light brown are just so cute. I saw this shirt and instantly imagined it tucked into high waisted jeans and I said “yep, need it.” But then I put it on and realized it could just as easily speak for itself. The only thing I wish is that the bold neckline was repeated on the sleeves and hem. But I’m still in awe for this top.

I mean look at it. Is it vintage? Is it modern? I can’t tell. I don’t care. It’s my new staple. That’s for dang sure.

But in case anyone forgot I was a 90’s girl:

“Mamaaaaaaaaa, ooooooohhhoooo, I don’t wannaaaa diieeee”

I know this isn’t Queen band merch, but that’s all I can think of when I see this crop top.

I’m almost positive this is a GUCCI design knock off, but I prefer this. The red stripes against the white instantly reminds me of 90’s fashion for some reason. I actually saw this in the window display, ran back into the store to get it, and left. I needed it. How else would everyone know I’m royalty? You gotta tell em.

My new car is turning me into a new person. You can see my attitude through my pictures. It’s gotten out of hand.

If you follow me on Instagram (Emmakaty_), you would’ve seen this cute little piece down below.

Just your local cool girl doing the same pose but from two different angles. I’m a creature of habit, what can I say? This jacket was actually 50% off, so I think it came in at an astounding $8.50!! How insane is that? It’s velvet AND embroidered. And pink. When do I wear pink???

I love this jacket. Bombers and motos are so in for fall every year. Velvet is still going strong, and I have a feeling it will stay that way all the way up into the holidays. New color trends: mustard, orange, denim, and browns. But there’s one more trend I have for yall:

I don’t remember what on the ground was so interesting.

I’m telling y’all right now, don’t sleep on me. I’m really feeling this season. Follow me on twitter  (Jesuisart) or whatever you gotta do to keep up with my #ootd.

The burnt orange in this shirt is just perfect. It’s so vibrant and noticeable.

It’s really easy to make a statement outfit with this shirt alone. I’m in love. Tie Dye is gonna be in y’all. You heard it here first.
