Fall Wardrobe Essentials (and What I Packed For The British Isles!)

I think it's safe to say that we all know I'm no fashion blogger. But, hey, a girl's gotta get dressed in the morning, right? And, when I asked my instagram followers if you all would be interested in reading up on some of the great fall wardrobe essentials I found while packing for our current trip, the answer was a resounding YES.

I'm one of those people who binge shops. I loathe shopping for clothing. I basically have to mentally prepare myself for hours of hunting and trying on, and I usually end up dropping quite a bit of money, but then I'm set for the season (and beyond). Anyone else shop like this? Having a trip always motivates me to get some new pieces into my wardrobe, so planning for our cruise through England, Ireland and Scotland was the perfect excuse! And perfect timing for some lighter fall wardrobe additions.

Yellow is having its moment right now, so it seemed quite fitting that I found the only yellow phone booths I've ever seen in Geurnsey on the first stop of our cruise. Layers have been the name of the game for this trip. It's been so hard to figure out what's going to happen next at each port! We've seen mist, sun, downpours and rainbows. So my shopping mainly consisted of lighter sweaters and jackets. And, always my trusty Nikes!

  1. striped rain jacket | 2. leather backpack | 3. nikes | 4. black skinny jeans | 5. eyelet cream sweater | 6. leopard print sweater | 7. green coat | 8. biker suede boots

You guys - those black jeans are my favorite, not only because of their fit but the price tag too! And right now they are 40% off - eek! I think I need to stock up. I hope that doesn't mean the style is being discontinued! I love a good cropped denim becuase it means this shorty doesn't have to deal with alterations.

Also, the green coat was my major splurge purchase for my Ireland & Great Britain trip and I don't regret it one bit. The thin, unlined wool slips on like silk and the weight is just perfect for fall. Three of us on the cruise showed up with leopard print sweaters, so I think it's safe to say that's a trend? I say leopard is always a good idea.
