the FASHION MUST HAVES FOR THE SEASON

It's officially winter, but don't tell Nashville because apparently the city hasn't caught on yet. If you're like me in the summer, you can't wait to wear fall/winter clothing and by mid-winter you are ready for summer clothing. I'm still in the phase where I'm still loving the clothes for this season. These are the pieces I keep picking from my closet.

the NAVY BLAZER - You can find navy blazers just about everywhere now, and they are so versatile. Pair them with a bright colored pant for a more bold look or go classic with jeans and tall boots. You almost can't go wrong.

J.CREW for $188

** I love the way this look is styled.  What an updated way to wear a basic navy blazer. If you don't have a lot of money to spend (I feel ya), you can find these at Forever 21.  I was lucky and found a great deal on one at Banana Republic.

Forever 21 for $28
** So no this isn't navy but a little color never hurt anyone. Having a blazer that fits you well in any color would be a great addition to your wardrobe. Stacy & Clinton (from the TLC show What Not to Wear) are always getting those women to buy jackets/blazers because they are so flattering.


the SCARF - This is such an inexpensive accessory that can really add a lot to your outfit. Scarves are great because they provide style and warmth. You should be picky when you're buying a scarf, and definitely try it on before you buy it. Filmsy scarves are awful, so look for one that has thickness to it (not too thick though because then you'll fill suffocated).

Forever 21 on sale for $8


** Savannah just bought this scarf and I love it. It looks amazing with my navy blazer :) Forever 21 is the single best place to buy a scarf. There is no reason to spend lots of money on one and they have so many to choose from. I like this and this too.

Charlotte Russe for $9.50
** This is one of my favorite ways to wear a scarf and this type of print has been everywhere this season. I love it!


the BOOTS- Boots might be my favorite part of fall/winter. They are what I look forward to most when it's 100 degrees outside. To me the season hasn't changed until I've worn my boots.

Nine West boots on sale for $99.50

** These are classic and can be worn with just about anything. Now, I love to wear brown boots with black & I remember years ago when I would have never done that.

Nine West for $96

** I think you could survive the entire fall/winter season with only a pair of brown flat boots and a pair of brown boots with a heel.  These are gorgeous.


the TRENCH - Trench coats never go out of style. I am aware that for some this may not be warm enough for a winter coat, but I hate coats so this is perfect for me. This is another piece that can be worn with anything. 

Juicy Couture trench coat for $154
** I got a great deal on my trench coat a few years ago when I bought it at T.J. Maxx. Discount stores (Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, etc) are a great place to find coats, and they usually have a big selection.


Jones of New York for $53

** Maybe the basic tan trench coat bores you.  There are lots of options out there for fun colored ones too.  I love this plaid!


the LEGGINGS - I remember when leggings first came back into style and I was a little skeptical.  Oh how I love them so, BUT they must be worn right.  They are not pants, so if you are wearing a tunic with leggings, the tunic should cover your tushy well.


Gabriella Rocha leggings for $35

** These are amazing.  Of course there are the basic black leggings that are a wardrobe staple, but having a patterned legging really makes a statement.

Summer Solstice Leggings for $28
** These are wild and not for everyone, but I think they'd be really cute with a black shirt dress and some booties.


the NECKLACE - Specifically the bike necklace. I'm obsessed with bikes, and I would wear my bike necklace every day all day. In general I prefer a long necklace to one that sits on the collarbone but there are some great ones out there like this and this and this


Rachel Pfeffer Designs on etsy for $88

** This necklace is the jam. I got mine at Target for way less than this one, but Target is "the Man" and this lady handmade hers so.....
