Fall Essentials :: Guest Post by Alex

Today's post comes from Alex, at Monster Misa. She has an adorable blog, and as a fellow lady from the 518, I have to show her some support - so go check her out! She was kind enough to share with us Part 2 of her 12 Fall Essentials. You can see the first 6 on her blog. And without further ado, I bring you Alex's Fall Essentials!

I am very honored to have been recruited by Jess to do a guest post on her amazing blog! First of all let me introduce myself, for those who don't know me my name is Alex and I am the blog author of Monster Misa. I am a 23 year old semi-adult who loves cooking and fashion! Jess asked me to write a post on my favorite fall essentials. You can find my first 6 fall essentials on my blog, and the second 6 right here on Jess' blog!
  1. Infinity Scarf: Now that it's officially fall it's time I bring out my scarves. I love to pair scarves with long sleeved shirts or sweaters. There is nothing like having a cozy scarf around your neck on a beautiful fall day. I especially love this navy and white infinity scarf, which would be perfect with a pair of skinny jeans.
  2. Suede Booties: I've been on the hunt for brown suede booties for quite some time and I think I found the perfect pair! While the ground is still dry, these booties are the perfect fall staple (plus the heel isn't too high so they won't kill your feet)!
  3. Navy Pencil Skirt: I love taking traditional office wear and finding a way to transition them to night-on-the-town wear. This navy pencil skirt has the perfect amount of edginess with those zipper pockets to look great with silk tank and a brown bomber jacket. Plus, pencil skirts are so flattering on every body type!
  4. Brightly Colored Cardigan: Just because it's fall doesn't mean you have to put away all your bright colored clothing. On those days that it's cool enough that you want something over your shoulders, but warm enough that you don't want to wear a heavy sweater, a fun cardigan with a pop of color ends up becoming the perfect fall essential. I especially love the tiny bow buttons on this Kate Spade Cardigan for when you're feeling extra girly.
  5. Navy Nail Polish: I had this amazing navy nail polish from OPI for years and it finally went bad so I had to pick up a new one. I love the Midnight Cami color from Essie because its got that perfect navy color with a hint of sparkle. I put on a clear top coat to really bring out the shine.
  6. Color Block Bag: For years I hated the idea of combining black and brown, it was always a fashion don't in my book. But recently I've loved the idea of mixing tan and black together especially because it saves me from having to change my purse every time I change an outfit. This Kate Spade tote is also the perfect size purse, not to big but not too small and with the cute button detail.... it's definitely a great statement piece!

That wraps up my 12 Fall Essentials, did I miss anything? 
What would you add to my list?
