Essentials

As the cooler weather approaches New York, I am thriving on wearing thin layers, booties and fresh makeup to welcome the change. It also has me thinking of fall essentials I already own, and ones that I need. While I acknowledge that not All of these items on my list are "essentials," I do feel that Fall would be all the more enjoyable if these lived in my closet.

ESSENTIALS-Fall3

1. Modcloth lace blouse, $50
2. Olive green wrap/scarf, $50
3. Topshop tall ribbed socks, $12
4. Judith Jack Large Onyx Ring, $199
5. Carven Vintage Clear Frame Sunglasses $180
6. Rachel Leigh Gunmetal Blush Drops, $48
7. Mulberry Neely tote in Spongy Nude, $1200
8. Tommy Hilfiger Benningon Low Duck Booties, $298
9. Essie nail color in Little Brown Dress $8
10. Monica Vinader Nugget amethyst earrings, $270

  13. oh man there is that mulberry bag again. And I went into Intermix yesterday and saw a beautiful Chloe brown bag (cross body) for $1800.00. Crazy but gorgeous. Love those sunglasses and the cocktail ring too.
    (oh and returned the boots and got the other ones..in black not grey b/c they didn't have my size).

  20. I always make a list of autumn 'essentials' which aren't exactly necessary but I wish I had them in my wardrobe. Great picks, especially the lace blouse.
