Fall Staples

fall staples

I’m so happy that the weather in STL is finally starting to cool off. The night time temps have been in the 50s! Perfect for apple picking, pumpkin farms, and bonfires (I have had 2 already).

In honor of fall temperatures, I decided to put together a list of some of my fall staples that are perfect for cooler weather! How cute is that faux suede skirt!? Everything is linked below. I also found a similar skirt that is a bit cheaper than the one above (which you can find HERE).

Happy Monday! Last week was such a crazy week for me. On the Fourth of July I had about 25 total people come by my place for a BBQ (it was the first time we had this many people in our little apartment). I was SO worn out and for some reason I thought it was a good idea to work overtime everyday…Let’s just say I’m excited for this week to go back to normal (even though it’s going to be almost 100 degrees this week in St. Louis).

The weather here in St. Louis is always so up and down. One week it will be 70 degrees, and the next 100 degrees. For those weeks that are 70 degrees, I love pairing my favorite shorts with some sort of light weight cardigan (especially for the cold office at work). This pineapple cardigan from Target has been on major repeat this summer. In this look, I paired it with white shorts, a basic black tee, black booties, and a tassel necklace. I found this cardigan in store, and have yet to find it online since I posted it last, so I’m linking another option.

Have a great week everyone, and stay cool during this scorcher!
