I am all about great basics because they are the foundation to every wardrobe. Each season has its own key items, for example summer is all about cutoffs, sandals and the perfect sunnies. A lightweight sweater, suede jacket and open toe booties are three items to make up the perfect fall basics.
This lightweight sweater from Luxe + Stone (discount code below!) is my current favorite. I love a good chunky knit, but lightweight sweaters are great fall basics because they’re great for layering. The relaxed fit of this sweater it what makes it great for running errands or a date night, plus the navy is so pretty. I paired it with my favorite skinnies, but it easily pairs with cutoffs, and the length is perfect for leggings too…talk about versatile!!!
Our winters are not that cold, but cool enough to layer with jackets and cardigans, check out this post for 5 Jackets you need for fall. Suede jackets have become as much of an essential closet staple as the leather or denim jacket. I got this one last year, but it is back again and you NEED it. This color layers over just about anything! I love to layer it over tees, sweaters and dresses.
I think any bootie is a Fall and Winter essential, but I especially love the open-toe bootie for Fall because it is still pretty warm. Lately, I have been loving all things Vince Camuto lately in the way of booties because they are so comfortable. I actually purchased this pair during Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, but they were on back order so I just got them in last week. I’m dying over this color, it’s a great neutral, and the detailing is so pretty.

I also want to talk about this gorgeous necklace from the Starfish Project. The Starfish Project is an organization restores hope to women escaping human trafficking and exploitation in Asia. They provide vocational training, healthcare, shelter, counseling, and education grants for our women and their children. I love that they share what your purchase will provide for these women. For example, the Pamela Gold & Agate Pendant is equal to the cost of one week of computer classes and Abby White Agate & Gold Bracelet is one week of shelter. Shop some of my other favorites below.
