Reader Request and Fall/Winter shopping all rolled into one!

I gots an email.

With a GOOD question…

Dear Fashion Guru,

Here is my current situation.  I’ve been creeping the pages of Pinterest looking for some insight into what to purchase for Fall/Winter that will carry me thru till the spring. I’m seeing lots of layering, and cardigans, huge chunky sweaters, boots, leggings. All things I’m a BIG fan of because I’m ALWAYS cold! So, if you had to suggest some KEY pieces for Fall/Winter what should I be on the look out for? Secondly, if you have some packing/travel tips. What should a girl take on a week-long trip to maximize space to allow bringing home more items!!! Thanks so much, can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

Becky

LOL…I like my new title. Y’all can refer to me that way from now on, K?!

Kidding.

Kinda.

Becky does bring up a good question though. What pieces are good from fall thru till spring. Because I know my bank account doesn’t support a full seasonal wardrobe change…and becuase I always feel a little weird wearing chunky southwestern-y sweaters in the spring. They look FAB in November. But come March…I don’t know. Am I alone in this?!

So, hmmmmm. Here are some ideas.

And if you all have any other suggestions…chime in!!!

military coat

First up, Military Coat. This trend has been around for a while, and looks like it will be staying. I like it. A military coat is a good neutral that matches pretty much anything, and can be layered to keep warm. I still wear mine in the spring without feeling too bulky or outta place…

plaid

And always a classic, and available in SOOO many colors and price points is the plaid shirt…look for ones that have colors that can translate to spring. Or if you find one that fits your body fabulously, buy it in a fall/winter color and in a spring color…

And this one combines a military coat AND a plaid shirt. GENIUS!

native inspired

And of course. Native Inspired. Love it. Always have, always will. Not easily translated to spring, but will truly never go out of style, so fall after fall you will be able to break this stuff out!

My 100…

Continuing my top 100 (can’t live without) list!!
