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.
Fall Clothes I Can’t Wait to Wear
This bodysuit I own in both black and white (L) and this Madewell blazer (S).
This Madewell Chore Jacket (L).
This J.Crew cashmere crewneck sweater. Wearing a M but if I bought another color I’d get it in a L for a more slouchy fit.
These black Levi’s jeans. Wearing size 28. And this jacket from Mango. I found a similar style – the perfect lightweight layer.
These classic Veja sneakers.
My magic pants aka the M.M.LaFleur Curie Pants! Wearing the 6S (I am 5’5″) These are so versatile. Wearing with a Bash Paris sweater.
This Amazon sherpa fleece I lived in last Fall for walks and hikes. I own the zip up version, too! M in both.
This Senreve bag that I’ve been wearing non-stop since I got it and for which Fall will be no exception! It’s the perfect size. Code WITWHIMSY will get you $50 off your first order over $300.
This cozy Alpaca sweater I live in come cooler weather. Wearing a M. Coat is also by Everlane from a few seasons ago.
This turtleneck I love with jeans and with leggings. Wearing a M.
This slouchy, soft striped tee by AYR. Wearing shade French Toast in a M.
The classic Sézane Colette Marinière Striped Tee. I am wearing a size M above. Comes in a variety of colors. I own the Large in the Ecru/Black.
This pullover that I have worn so, so much since getting it. (Size M). So affordable and the perfect pairing with all my favorite leggings.

I also love my Brighton Boatneck Dudley Stephens. Size L.

This favorite super soft hoodie (M) and these leggings (L). And of course my all time favorite APL Techloom sneakers that I sport all year round. I size down half a size to 6.5.
These Lululemon Align joggers (size 6). So comfy that I practically lived in them during cooler months earlier this year. I know I’ll be reaching for them a lot come Fall.
If I had a $1 for every time my girlfriends and I have discussed how amazing the Vuori joggers were this year, I’d be rich. We are obsessed. They are so soft, so comfy and manage to be stylish enough for both outdoor and indoor wear. I sized down to a Size Small. Read my full Vuori Joggers Review. (Wearing the Vuori Energy tank with the joggers in a size M).
These Rag & Bone boots that were a favorite investment purchase two years ago and have gotten so much wear. I am also eyeing the new colors they just released for this Fall. These are SO comfy and truly great for walking lots. Similar for less here.
Also this cozy sweater (wearing a S).
The Ella Sweater Blazer Coat that’s so easy to throw on and look put together. Size way down in this!
This lightweight and super affordable puffer jacket I wore on so many walks and hikes last Fall. Wearing a M.

These favorite jeans (size 27). You can find my whole love letter to these jeans here. I now own them in 3 different colorways.
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.
My Vince leather jacket. I bought it back in 2014 and it is still one of my most worn items that I own. It is the most buttery, soft leather and I love the fit so much. Faux, affordable similar style here.
If you’re looking for a good investment of real leather, I suggest this Madewell leather jacket or this Sezane leather jacket.

This coat is a workhorse in my coat closet. I love the tailored fit of it and that you can wear it layered and accessorized in cooler months or with a more feminine blouse in warmer months. I recommend sizing up. I’m wearing an 8.
I also love adding a ruffled collar top under coats or sweaters in the Fall. Perfect for a feminine French detail.
These booties that are the most comfortable, most worn in my closet (similar more affordable style here). See also: all my favorite shoes.
