Fall 2016 Style Inspiration

These are the things I want to add to my fall wardrobe.

A classic beret worn just so.

UPDATE: I literally bought a raspberry beret in a secondhand store.

An Elizabeth Suzann duster in black. This is a perfect layering piece for work. I’d wear a white button-down shirt under this. It has an art professor vibe that I love.


A skinny silk scarf to add a little color and interest to my outfits. Instead of buying a new scarf, I recommend just buying a vintage men’s necktie and just wrapping it around your neck, like so. Maybe alter the necktie by adding a little fringe as seen below.

I’m interested in these Everlane pants. They look like great everyday basics.

This fall I want to splurge on socks. And since I splurge on basically nothing this is really saying something. They have to be just right. These two below fit the bill. The pink socks on the left say –  “My favorite salad is wine.” The photo is from an adorable Instagram account called ChinaTownPretty. The account was created to celebrate the street style of seniors living (and grocery shopping) in SF Chinatown. You should definitely follow. The photo below on the right is from The Sartorialist. It is from the Fall 2011 Dries Van Noten runway show. These pairs of socks inspire me to buy socks that add a little color or pattern and humor to my wardrobe. Just something that would make yourself or someone else smile when you sit down and cross your legs.

I need to wear comfortable shoes that I can walk in. I want a pair as seen in the image below on the right. I can’t find them anywhere. Zappos offers a couple of pairs that are kinda cool. I’ll probably keep looking.

    You probably know this, but just in case… Those wine socks are from Blue Q and they have loads of cool socks! Thanks for your blog. I enjoy it a lot. Best Wishes, Jennifer

      Thank you Jennifer! I did not know that. I will Google them now! 🙂

    I saw some pink Doc Martens that a lady said she bought online – that seems like a fun piece to add.

      Indeed! And vintage floral Doc Martens are great too!

    Check etsy for creeper shoes.

      I have seen pairs in the past but they were not my size. Now I don’t see anything drool-worthy at all. Maybe they are becoming more popular again.
