Things in My Closet I Can’t Wait to Wear This Fall

Fall Outfit in Central Park I wit & whimsy

Fall is nearly here and I am ready for it! This past weekend I did a huge closet clean out and it had me discovering so many things I can’t wait to wear as soon as the temperatures start to feel a bit more crisp. I rounded up some of the pieces to share with you today – many of which I’ve owned for years and stand the test of time year over year.

Plaid Blazer + Loafers I wit & whimsy

This Gap blazer. They brought back a near identical version of it here.

Fall Neutrals I wit & whimsy

This & Other Stories sweater (size down – wearing a Small – so glad they brought this back this year! It sold out multiple times last Fall).

Styling Classics I wit & whimsy

These beloved Levi’s jeans. More about them here. And also this button down which remains one of the best classics in my wardrobe. I’ve tried a lot of button downs and this is the best ever. I’m wearing a size 40.

French Girl Style I wit & whimsy

These favorite jeans (size 27) and my beret.

Gucci Mini Bag I wit & whimsy

This little mini Gucci bag. It is one of my Fall & Winter favorites. It doesn’t fit much – just my phone, credit card and keys but it makes the perfect teeny companion to a lot of my outfits and ensures I let my doesn’t-show-up-often minimalism shine.

Stuart Weitzman Lowland Boots I wit & whimsy

These Stuart Weitzman boots (still one of my best investments) and my favorite cashmere sweater I’ve had and worn on repeat for the past five years. Other, more affordable cashmere sweaters in a similar style that I can endorse (as I own them as well) include this one from Talbots and this one from Everlane.

  1. This roundup has me SO READY for fall now! Wow lol. Love a lot of your picks too! Such great staples for everyone’s closet.

  2. I’m so here for your fall content. Would love current scarf ideas if you have any! The ones I find are always too bulky OR too light/flimsy.

  3. I’ve been impatiently waiting for fall weather and your round-up has me even more excited now. I’m happy to see the & Other Stories sweater is back since I could never catch it in stock last year. I’ve also been eyeing those Sarah Flint boots so can’t wait to see how you style them!
