Fall Essentials: Slip Dresses & Turtlenecks + Link-Up

Ah Fall, don’t you just love it? I teamed up with amazing bloggers Larissa from Living in Color and Jacqueline of Stylin in St. Louis to let you in on our Fall essentials that you definitely need in your closet. Go check out their blogs for what they suggest and be sure to read the rules and join the link-up at the bottom of this post.

Obviously, these picks are not the end all, be all for Fall essentials. Also, everyone is different, these are just a few items that are super versatile and perfect for Fall 2017. Let’s start with my favorite, the slip dress. One of the best trends to make it out of the boudoir and into the streets IMO. For Fall the best way to go it at the knees or longer, take for instance the Zara slip dress I am wearing here. I think it’s meant to be midi but being petite it’s more maxi on me but I love that. Slip dresses are perfect for Fall because of the thinness of the material, the hundreds of ways to style it and layers upon layers are possible with my beloved slip dress. What do you think about slip dresses, love em’ or hate em’? Here are a few of my favorite’s:

Next, we have a classic, the simple black, slim-fit turtleneck. Not a sweater but more of a stretchy, cotton piece that hugs your curves and can go under anything. This piece is something I like to purchase on the cheap because it gets so much wear you may need a new one each season. I hope you like these options:

If you don’t already have a black crossbody handbag, why? I am making this one a Fall essential because it is absolutely something you will grab again and again. The cooler temps mean we tend to wear darker colors, as we get into the later part of the season you will have event after event and I don’t know about you but I much prefer a nice, small, leather handbag that also leaves my hands free over some fancy minaudiere. Unless of course you’re headed to a black tie affair or the equivalent. Here are some small, black, crossbody bags. I included the super affordable to some that are a couple hundred:

Wearing a basic turtleneck from Target with this gorgeous Zara slip dress (similar). As for my accessories I am wearing my beloved Balmain pumps, a Vera Bradley (currently 30% off all styles!) handbag (similar) with added pom keychain, YHF sunglasses and a Case Cavern Honey Bee phone case.

    I love this pairing! I have so many slip dresses that I never had the chance to wear this summer. I am going to try this layering with a turtleneck and see if I can transition of my summer pieces into fall. Great look! Thanks for the inspiration!
