The Two Fall Must-Have Essentials

Fall is just around the corner. So let's talk fall weather essentials. What are the two items every woman needs to have in her closet this fall? At the top of my list you'll find blanket scarves and ankle booties. Here's why and how I'll be wearing them through the rest of 2016 and into 2017.


Comfy and cozy, the very same blanket scarf can look completely different day-to-day based on how you wear it. It's a quick and easy way to switch up your look with a single item. #Winning. And a good ankle bootie can take you from carpool to the office to a night out with the girls to date night to running errands to the tailgate. (Whew. And that's just to name a few!) That's why a good ankle bootie is my go-to shoe come fall and winter. Every. Day. 

And that's also why we're celebrating Fashion Friday's birthday by offering our popular annual boot and scarf Fashion Friday deal for just $29.95 + free shipping!
