eSTYLIST: Fall Uniform 2018

I’m just now getting used to cold mornings, warming my car up, and having to wear socks practically everyday. However, I’ve finally come to terms that I won’t be wearing flips flops anytime soon. Most seasons, I have a go-to outfit; usually mixing of simple pieces and casual accessories. Basically, I have a uniform each season and now it’s time for my fall uniform this year.

This season, I decided that I need to finally step away from my favorite go-to look of leggings, oversize tee, combat boots, and denim jacket. Instead, I want to go wit a slightly relaxed pair of blue jeans; not too dark or light. Although I still can’t turn away from a comfy tee, I will look for tees that are more formed tees and less oversized, stretched out options. Also, I want to move on from combat boots to more structured shoes and with a heel, which will make my insteps totally hate me. Finally, time to let my denim jacket get some rest and not wear it everyday. Instead, ovesized and cozy looking cardigans are my jam for this season. However, I will still reach for my denim jacket, just not as much.

Accessorizing Fall 2018

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been slowly acquiring fall pieces that can mix and mingle within my closet. However, I haven’t really been focusing shoes, bags, and tidbits that can use when accessorizing fall wardrobes. Although I have a few key pieces from previous years, it wouldn’t hurt to add a few more.

SHOPPING FOR: Keychain Wallets

This past weekend, while strutting out of Sprouts feeling $20 lighter with bag of attempts to be healthy, I heard metal hitting the ground. I instantly stopped and looked down even though I already knew what made that sound. The sound was my keys detaching from my wallet. Before I left my house, I noticed that they fabric holding the key ring on my wallet was tattered and falling apart. At that moment, I knew that my beloved Rebecca Minkoff wallet/ key chain hybrid didn’t have long. However, I did not realize that it had less than an hour left and I would spend the rest of my night looking for keychain wallets.

TREND WATCH: Clear Purses and Bags

One of my favorite bags I’ve ever owned is a clear tote bag that I got from Baker Shoes back when I was in the 9th grade. It was just a simple clear final tote; no zippers, closures, or details. Despite the fact that it was so basic, I got so many compliments on it. I got that bag back in the spring of 1996 and 22 years later, clear purses and bags are back.

I recently fell down a rabbit hole of scouting possible purse contenders for fall. However, I couldn’t get over all the clear and semi-clear purse options out there.

We’ll see, but check out some of my favorite clear bags as I try to remember what happened to my clear tote from 22 years ago.
