So what do I have in my closet this fall?

Dresses:

As you will well know by now, I *love* dresses and wear them far more than any item in my closet; therefore, it is is fitting that I am carrying 10 dresses in my capsule this fall.

Pants

I don’t love pants, but I do like these three pairs for different reasons: 1)Shiny shiny shiny! I am basically a magpie — plus they make me feel like Buffy! 2) Plaid — I’ve talked about why I love these pants here. 3) These rust harem pants were the first item I debuted this fall — they are comfortable and a lovely fall shade.

Scarves! Most of these were gifts brought back from Europe, excluding the bottom middle which was a gift from my mom from The Library of Congress in Washington :)

Footwear

I have been wearing these Steve Madden purple boots on repeat for the last month (and discussed why I love them here)! I am also carrying a pair of black ankle boots, shoes, and sneakers.

Outerwear

I will be wearing this Le Chateau black leather coat until it gets too cold; I love the braided details!
