my fall basics...

After I put together the 2011 fall looks:book I combed through it myself to start making some decisions on what I would be purchasing for fall clothing this season.  I knew I wanted a classic, slightly preppy and very versatile closet for fall.  So when I started making decisions on certain items I kept those three things in mind.

Right off the bat there were three items I knew I had to have...

I specifically chose these three items for their versatility while they still are modern, classic and trendy at the same time - can that be!?!? I think so!

Next up I'm still looking for a gingham top... a new pair of flats... and a new pair of jeans.  I'll keep you updated when I find the perfect pieces.  In the meantime... look for the three above pieces on the blog soon!

After perusing the 2011 fall looks:book.... what do you have your eye on for fall?

Definitely those Minnetonka booties...and some oversized cableknit sweaters, like the j crew one with the button. a little twist on the preppy classic.

love the blazer choice!

Bestie, I lOVE the Minnetonka booties (I have a pair from last year!) I might do Minne's as my flats, still deciding! And I tried on a cable knit sweater at J.Crew and LOVED it too. Great fall picks!

60's silhouettes, 70's flare jeans, bright bold seperates, and graphic prints!

I got the looks book and have all kinds of ideas! I just bought a pair of real cowboy boots today, which I've wanted for a good 5 years, but the other things I'm looking to buy are 1: a pair of black boots, 2: A leather jacket, and 3: Some cable knit sweaters!
