In case you missed it, last month we introduced a new monthly feature called Team GYPO’s Word of Mouth where we share all things that help us feel pretty, get organized and just plain feel wonderful!
This month we are getting closer and closer to that fall feeling and the promise of colder weather. It is time to start switching over our closets, rediscover our favorite pieces and fall in love all over again. I love breaking out my sweaters, scarves and boots. I’m also excited to add a few new items this season, which is what led me to ask our GYPO team:
What new fall clothing piece are you most excited to wear?
This fall I purchased my first ever vest. It’s a 32 Degrees Puffer Vest. I bought a deep purple one to keep me warm while I take my morning walks. Can you imagine how excited I was when I saw a similar item on the Style Challenges Fall 2018 Capsule Wardrobe shopping list??? Not only will it keep me warm, but Alison is also going to teach me how to wear it as an adorable, anytime layer. Now I just need the temperature to drop enough to actually wear it.
Suzannah – Boots
I need to update my boots. I’m trying to decide between ankle boots
and riding boots
, but regardless, they’re on my short list!! I have a little bit more time because I live in California, but I cannot wait until I find some great cognac colored boots.
I’m most excited to have some real fall days so I can wear my schoolboy camel blazer
. Menswear-inspired pieces are really having a moment and this piece is both on trend and a wardrobe staple at the same time. It’s a two-fer! I have all sorts of plans for layering it up – with gingham and chambray button downs, over a striped shirt, with fall florals, over teal and burgundy blouses – the weather just needs to hurry up and cooperate already!
I’m really excited to wear my new Old Navy High Rise Rockstar Jeans
! They have built-in sculpting, which is perfect for a curvy size 14 like me! I thought the high-rise cut would be unflattering, but it’s surprisingly comfortable and cute. I’m looking forward to ditching shorts and this hot Florida weather to get back into jeans. In the fall, I typically wear a good pair of denim with a basic white tank
.- my go-to weekend uniform!
I finally found a pair of booties that I LOVE. I’ve been making do with a cheapie pair of booties (honestly they are more of a shootie style) that I just didn’t love so I’ve been keeping an eye out for a new pair. A small display of western inspired embellished vegan leather booties from Seven7
caught my eye in a store and I pulled the trigger. The leather is super soft and they are so comfortable!
Kathryn – Long Cardigan Sweater
I’m excited to wear all my long cardigan sweaters again! They make the cold weather and snow much more bearable and they are so cozy to wear.
So after years of eyeing them up, I finally made the plunge and bought myself a pair of Hunter Rain Boots and they were on sale! I am so excited to wear them and with all the rain we are expecting I shouldn’t have to wait long. They are not traditional but I love the bright colors and they will pair nicely with my black rain jacket. Did I mention they are actually comfortable too? Bring on the rain! I’m ready!
Your turn! What fall piece are you most excited to wear?
