Something about the first day of fall gets me in the mood for cozy sweaters, stylish boots, chic scarves and pumpkin spice lattes. This year it feels more like summer than fall but there’s a feeling in the air that the weather is changing. With crisp mornings and cooler nights packing a light sweater is advised and perfect for this time of year. When fall comes that means play time is over and it’s time to buckle down— I know… I know… Luckily, there’s the need for a back-to-school wardrobe. A beautiful consolation prize that’s definitely not just for students!!!
In my case, I’ve made denim and knits a HUGE part of my back-to-school essentials! They’re warm enough for the cooler temps outside and still breathable for sitting in back to back classes inside. Denim is effortlessly cool while knits offer contrast by adding something more substantial. Given the awesome rainstorm yesterday (hello, September!), I live in my boots come fall. Try a riding boot or an over-the-knee to round out your look. Pair it with a neutral cross-body bag or backpack and your outfit is set for cycling, catching the bus or hopping a ride with friends.. whichever way gets you to class on time and not borrowing a classmate’s notes your first month back! Speaking of being on time, I’ve completed my look with an equally casual watch that features a natural wristband— I love my Lachlann! It’s simple enough to wear everyday and everyone seems to be loving it! I’ve found my essentials at Fine Finds Boutique in Yaletown— take a look at my outfit combos below that will give you all the fall feels!
