I know a lot of bloggers, myself included, write posts about things you simply “must have” for a specific season. And I don’t know about you, but reading these posts I automatically assume that the person writing them must own the items that they are claiming are needed. And that’s where I come in. I’m here to tell you all that I don’t own all of the Fall “essentials” and that’s ok!
So I thought I’d lay it out straight and come clean about why I’m missing a handful of Fall staples:
- I want staple pieces that will last a long time (more than a year or two)
- If you want pieces that last a long time they have to be higher quality
- Higher quality comes with a higher price point
- Higher price points make me super picky about finding the perfect whatever I’m looking for
- I spend too much time looking for said “perfect” item and never end up purchasing it.
I can’t be the only one who has the same thought process, right?
Any who, I thought I’d share with you my handful of Fall “essentials” that I’m essentially too picky to spend money 🙂
- Cape– I need one that’s black, preferably wool, has a hood with no fur, and comes down to about my knees.
- Booties– I need suede boots in a taupe color that have a rounded toe, the perfect heel height, have a large enough opening at the top for my large ankles, and come up to above my ankle)
- Peacoat– I need a neutral peacoat, preferably with toggles that has a loose hood and comes down to my knees..
- Vest – I need a slightly down vest in a neutral color (I’m thinking army green) that has a spread collar, and can go over a sweater without being too tight or too loose
