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

September 1, 2021

Fall Neutrals I wit & whimsy

Happy September! Fall is nearly here and I am even more ready for it than usual this year after a very hot, very humid and very rainy summer in New York.

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year for so many reasons but it is also my favorite season to get dressed. I’m excited to begin pulling out all my Fall favorites that I have rounded up to share with you today. 

Long time readers will recognize a lot of these pieces and already know that I truly believe in making investments in your wardrobe for classic pieces that you know will be in style for years to come. In a time where we are all shopping less, I think key investment pieces can be far more rewarding than buying a lot of things you may discard by the time next Fall arrives.

  4. This made me soooo excited for fall! I’m going on year five with that dreamy Vince leather jacket because of you. The best investment piece I’ve ever bought!
