Fall Favorites: My Go-to Fall Wear

October 3, 2016

Guys? I have happily hopped onto the fall bandwagon in blogland… also in real life 😉 The temps have finally dipped (enough) here in TN and it’s made my heart pretty happy to have to throw on a sweatshirt in the mornings. So let me just say it right here and now – today, I am grateful for FALL. While summer might be my favorite season over all, fall is actually my favorite season when it comes to clothes. I am a layers kinda gal – nothing makes me happier than to wear three different shirts at the same time. I also feel like messy hair is completely acceptable in the fall time – expected practically. And, if there’s any other “kinda gal” I am – it’s a messy hair kinda gal. Dark nail polish, dark eye with a pale lip, everything flannel and anything leather (my maroon leather jacket being one of my faves), always wearing leopard and turquoise accents – all of these things scream FALL to me, and all of these things make me feel like me. (I also tend to feel the most creative in the fall time – anyone else get that way?)

Here are two looks that tend to be my go-tos this time of year:


Fall Wear 1



Fall Wear 2


Another fall-ish thing for me though tends to be the accessories – this is the only time of year when I wear the most jewelry, layering it all of course! As it is, I wear a ton of black and dark blue – but, yes, especially in the fall and winter – so when JORD introduced their new Frankie 35 wood watch in Navy, you can bet I was already daydreaming about all the ways this little beauty might fit into my fall wardrobe. Ever since I was first introduced to JORD (wow, it’s been over a year now!), I have now added “wood” as a new must-have category for not just fall, but for all the other seasons too.


Frankie 35 – Zebrawood & Navy

This watch? LOVE. I’m so obsessed with this color, but I also love the fact that it’s a bit smaller than what I’m used to wearing… gives more room for layering on more jewelry 😉 I know I talk a lot about JORD on EG, and I hope you all know by now that it’s because I honestly love their product (they’re also seriously wonderful to work with though too), and when we bloggers come across something we love love LOVE, we share… right?


To give you an idea of the size of some of JORD’s watches, check out the photo below.


The Frankie 35 (in Navy here) is JORD’s new smaller sized watch. You can gauge the size a bit against the one right next to it (this is my go-to – the Fieldcrest in Zebrawood & Maple, I wear this watch all the time!). And then of course the watch on the far left is JORD’s new Koa & Ash color in the Frankie series. You may recognize this watch from this photo – this is Christian’s newest and favorite piece to wear! It’s large, yes, but I think it fits just fine on a woman’s wrist too. (I have this same watch but in Ebony & Gold – recently wearing it here.)

But I never really stop wearing black tees and skinnies, I just add on a plaid shirt or an army green jacket for the cooler temps. I did buy a long chunky knit cape cardi in the Nsale and I’m pretty excited to pull that baby out…its almost cold enough!!
    Loooooove the navy Jord watch. Maybe I should note it for Christmas from M…. ?

    • I am so with you on the tees and skinnies – my go-to is a heather gray vneck tee. I have so many of them and wear them all the time. (People prob think I’m wearing the same dirty shirt… which, let’s be honest. Some days I just might be. haha #momlife)
