The new season is fast approaching, if you couldn’t tell, open up your eyes!

But, with the breezy weather on its way in, I have begun my seasonal stock up-this is honestly my favorite time of the year!

True, it may be a l i t t l e early for Pumpkin Spice anything, but I’m going to go ahead and embrace a good thing when it appears.

Summer is great and all, but fall is what I live for. The shoes are cuter, the colors are richer, and I can bundle up in my favorite sweater(s).

Not to mention boots. I love the boots. I just added these classics from Lands’ End to my collection last week:

NOTE: If you aren’t already a fan, the Wisconsin based Lands’ End has a LOT to offer. Not to mention killer sales throughout the year.

My daily wardrobe consists of the usual staples of long sleeves, dark skinnies and scarves. My accessories are where I add in the fun. You can mix and match, play it up or down, look classy and comfortable. (Between errands, office work and studio meetings, comfort is key.)

So, before I get sidetracked, I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite things.

Clutch: Tortoiseshell anything will always be in style; ask your grandmothers. The mix of the black and brown print blends everything together. The clutch caught my eye back in MARCH and with that said, it is something that is not just a seasonal staple, but a daily staple.

Flats: These calf-hair cuties definitely make a statement on your feet. After having to throw out my first beloved pair after wearing them out on wedding days, I was more than happy to see that they were still available two years later!

Studs: I have a collection of Kate Spade gumdrops, but Kendra Scott knows how to make an entrance. These Morgan studs are perfect for everyday wear and the smokey quartz is eye catching.

Lips: Day to day, I try to keep my makeup routine simple. Groomed brows, mascara’d lashes, colored lips. Regardless, Bobbi Brown is my go to girl-I can probably thank Tayla LaMacchia our go to make up gal here in Milwaukee for this obsession. The sheer lip color in Cherry Pink is always in hand and on lips.

TIP: Versatility is key. True, I am stating these are my fall staples, but all items can be worn throughout the seasons! Hence making them great additions to any closet!
