Friday Five | Fall Essentials

Happy Friday fam! With fall well underway, we wanted to roundup some of our favorite fall/winter essentials. We had our first snowfall in Upstate NY this week, so what better time than to make sure we’re prepared for the colder months.

Melina and I love fall fashion, it’s definitely our favorite season for clothes. Anything that involves layering and big scarves you can count me in for. Here are 5 of our must have fall items this season:

Blanket Scarves

This is pretty much a given but also a complete necessity if you live in Upstate NY or the New England area.  You can wear and style these in so many different ways, which is why we knew it had to be on our list. You can throw one on when you feel your outfit needs that extra something or if you’re just plain cold (confession: I actually wear mine as a blanket sometimes). I recently ordered this scarf from Asos and I’m in love! So cozy.

Is it actually a fall essentials list without a classic boot on there? We didn’t think so. Chelsea boots are simple yet classic which make them the perfect item to add to your closet this season whether you’re dressing up or going for a more casual look. It may take a few trips to the mall to find the perfect pair but, trust us, it is definitely worth the hunt. These are my favorite wear to work boots and are slowly becoming a real wardrobe MVP of mine.39074489_023_f

Utility Jacket

Is it really fall if you don’t have one of these? I scored this amazing Free People one from Lord and Taylor (on sale of course) and I’ve been wearing it non stop ever since. This is the perfect transition piece when it’s too chilly to go without a jacket but you’re still not ready to put on that winter coat. We are definitely no strangers to the cold but let’s be honest, nobody is ever ready for that.screen-shot-2016-10-28-at-8-40-47-am

Dark Nail Polish

Is it just us or is it something about fresh perfectly polished nails that makes you feel like you have your life together? Your fall outfit isn’t complete without a dark mani (in our opinion). Think deep reds and purples dark enough to make you think it’s black. Make a serious statement in our go-to shade, Wicked by Essie. Something about a dark manicure makes you feel like you can take over the world.


Cute PJ Set

We know, it sucks you can’t sleep with your window open bringing in that warm summer breeze at night. But like everyone always says, you have to look on the bright side and that means a cute new pair of PJs to accommodate the colder days ahead of us. So, shut that window and bring out those warm fuzzy blankets and cozy up people! A few of our favorite sets can be found herehere aaaand here.


We hope this list made you a little less depressed about the colder weather and a lot more excited about killing the fall fashion game.
