Fall Fashion Must-Haves

 photo FALL 2.png/>

One of my favorite times of the year is Fall. Give me all the pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves--the list goes on. I'm also a lover of jackets, boots, and leggings. This year being pregnant with our sweet Carson I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a new fall wardrobe, so I'm bringing you Must-Haves that you can use pre, during, or postnatal. Some of my favorite pieces are the ones that aren't maternity, and even at 29 weeks I am still able to wear them! The items I included are essential items that anyone should keep in their closet all year long.

1. Utility Vest
I have a gray vest similar to this and absolutely love it. It is perfect in the hot months where I want to dress something up for fall, but can't cause it's too hot to throw on a jacket. Light vests are perfect for long sleeves tees!

American Rag Utility Vest $69.50
2. Jean Jacket
I have had my vest for quite a while now and it's my go to for all seasons. I love throwing it on over my strapless maxis when pregnant, as it's freezing inside but hot outside. I highly suggest investing in a jean jacket. 

J.Crew Denim Jacket $51
3. Black and White Stripe Dress
I have seen stripe dresses every where this year. I have one that will fix pre-pregnancy but want to invest in one to wear home from the hospital. One that is comfy that I can throw a kimono over when it's chilly out. 

BCBG 3/4 Sleeve Dress $138
4. Black Jeans
I got these jeans a while back when my mom found them for less then $3 at our local Gap. I got lucky and they were my size, and fit perfectly! I love wearing black jeans in the fall and winter and dressing them up with some gold accents. 

Gap STRETCH 1969 full panel true skinny jeans $75
5. Leggings
I actually had never heard of the brand Rune until I purchased these leggings on a maternity swap site on Facebook. But oh my goodness they are my favorite. I will definitely be wearing these after pregnancy and want to invest in one more pair!
Rune Maddy Maternity Legging $100
6. Leather Purse
I've been on the search for a leather bag to monogram and I'm pretty sure I need to find one now. I am loving this wine color, but I'd also be fine with a camel or black. I might pick one up this week. 

Monogrammed Leather Purse $40
7. Booties
So I have this gorgeous dress for my shower that I believe will only go with booties--I can't wait to pick some up though and wear them all the time. There is so much that they can go with, and I will definitely get my wear out of them!
DV Cognac Booties $38
8. Blanket Scarf
Blanket scarves are so trendy right now--my cousin sent me a plaid scarf last year with my monogram, and I wore it all the time. I want one of the blanket scarves with my monogram though, hopefully I can find one soon that I am loving. 
Plaid Blanket Scarf $25
9. Jord Watch
Jord sent me a watch about a month ago--and literally the next day my Michael Kors one broke. It was a sad day, but I am definitely using my Jord more then I thought I would. They have lovely women's wood watches that go great with anything! 
Jord Wood Watch $139
10. Flats
I literally buy these shoes every 6 months--they are so comfy and a great flat that go with anything! 
Womens Scrunch Ballet Flats $17
