Favorite Purchases for Fall so Far

what I packed to Milan // packing photo // fall essentials

It might not feel like it in most of the country (well, the USA at least), but it is officially fall! I love this time of year so so much! And I especially love all the new arrivals that hit the shelves; Fall is my absolute favorite seasons to shop for! Before leaving for my trip to Europe, I shared a few of my early fall buys that I’m bringing with me on on my trip!

These are all amazing pieces that I packed for my trip and have been wearing on REPEAT. And there a few that I think I need to call out to y’all and tell you why I love them so much.

pink boucle sweater, levi's mom jeans, gucci slides, gucci velvet marmont bag at Florence duomo

For starters – this pink bell sleeve sweater. The price is excellent (under $40), the material is AMAZE, and it comes in cream as well! You can see I wore it in this instagram post here if you’d like to see it on! All in all, it’s a great purchase!

V-neck cream sweater with white jeans and brown leather booties

And then I think this sweater is going to be one of my MVP’s for this fall season because I’ve already worn it SEVERAL different ways while in Italy. It’s just such an easy throw on and so comfortable. But also, the color and fit of it make it a super simple sweater to style multiple ways! While we’re on the topic of this outfit, I wanted to bring up these brown leather booties (fit TTS – I got size 7) again. They’re the perfect color and look so cute on! They’re like $80. But I’ll be honest, they’re not the most comfortable. So if you’re looking for something cute and don’t need to be on your feet for 4+ hours, these would be great! Otherwise, I would recommend investing in something nicer!

It comes in a few different colors too – I wore it in hot pink in my blog post about self awareness, too!

Black and white striped sweater and cognac suede moto jacket at gucci caffe designer outlet mall florence

And then I got this simple black and white v-neck sweater (I ordered size reg. XS) too! I love how thin it is, which makes it super easy to wear for layering under jackets and chunky scarves. I wore it to the designer outlet stores outside of Florence last week under a suede jacket and it was perfect! PS: in this photo, I’m wearing Sonix glasses ($120) and Blank NYC suede jacket ($188 – I got size S so I could layer).

europe travel outfit, black jeans white tee off white cardigan

And I got this cardigan too which I’ve been wearing at night when it gets chilly – LOVE!

I also just picked up these Gucci slides after swooning over them since August 2015 – I finally caved and got them and am so obsessed! Also, if you’ve been following along on instagram and stories, then you might have seen I also purchased the Stuart Weitzman leopard mules while I was in NYC last week. Speaking of, I’ve been wearing both pairs of mules on repeat! I love how easy they (both) are to throw on with just about any outfit and are so comfortable too!

I think that just about sums out my most-worn early Fall purchases! What do you think? Have you found any great finds for Fall?
