Even though it is still REALLY warm in LA, I have slowly started adding fall’s best colors and fabrications, layering items, staple prints, and festive occasion pieces that are versatile to carry me through the season.

Here are 10 new items I have added to my wardrobe:

Oversized Ripped Denim Jacket

RACHEL Rachel Roy Curvy Collection {available at Macy’s}

Longer length jackets and bombers are on trend for the season, and I plan to embellish this jacket with buttons and patches, just like I did back in the 90’s. [SHOP]

Quilted Pencil Skirt

Ashley Nell Tipton for Boutique+ JCPenney

Olive green is always a go-to for me this time of year, especially paired with nude and black. This skirt is comfy, chic and the rose gold zippers are perfection! [SHOP]

Smocked Bib Plaid High Low Tunic

Melissa McCarthy Seven 7 {available at Nordstrom}

I have at least 5 different button-down plaid shirts in my closet and I wear them all, especially this time of year. I love to layer them with graphic tees, leather jackets and cozy cardigans.  [SHOP]smocked-bib-plaid-high-low-tunic

“Petty” Chelsea Bootie

Sam Edelman

If there is one pair of shoes you buy this season, it should be a tan bootie. I love this one because it is super casual with a low heel and pairs perfectly with dresses, skirts and jeans.  [SHOP]

The texture and dimension of this dress are everything! It can be styled sporty, classic or trendy, which makes it a must have for me!  [SHOP]

Studio Tie Waist Cape

Eloquii

Capes are a huge trend again this season, and the style and color of this one are perfection. I love to layer but I always get hot, so outerwear like this is great for me because it is not restricting and allows my arms to breathe.  [SHOP]
