Oh, this is about me. I absolutely LOVE FALL. (If you’ve got that summertime sadness, please click here). I purchased and tweeted about (obvs) my first venti non fat extra hot Pumpkin Spice Latte (#PSL) of the season on September 4th, when it was 85 degrees here in the district (caveat for not purchasing on September 1, I was on a 4 day bender somewhere south of the Mason Dixon).

After somewhere around four too many vodka sodas last night, I found myself wasting away this beautiful feels-like-fall day on my couch. I trekked to Starbucks for a PSL and am bundled up in last year’s lulus and fratagonia, (p.s. didn’t you always love your boyfriend’s Patagonia more than yours because it was roomier and lightweight? They now have a women’s version of my favorite men’s design, adding to my shopping list for a rainy day or another paycheck) watching Kardashian reruns with the air conditioning off and the windows wide open. I decided if I’m not going to spend this perfect day outside, despite my fellow SR ladies’ best efforts to get my ass downtown to shop and nosh (Happy Yom Kippur Stace, how’d that fast go?), I might as well gear my closet up for fall!

My country-club-Republican-but-secretly-backwoods mother has owned these for as long as I can remember; seriously, the EXACT. SAME. PAIR. For 20 years! I’m currently super into “investment” pieces for my closet; timeless, high quality pieces that my daughters will be begging to borrow in 30 years (maybe I should find a boyfriend first). Of course, now that I’m off my parents’ payroll and supporting my shopping habit with my teensy tiny D.C. paycheck, I’m lusting after these classic Bean Boots on steroids, and absolutely have to have them in case shit gets real again this year.

Next up, another “investment” piece. I already have a beloved late fall jacket, but am in the market for something a little more versatile and casual. Cue another classic, the Barbour Utility Jacket. I can add a liner for chillier days, or go au natural on crisp days to pop over to brunch or the office! I’m also coveting this Barbour for J Crew version, but the price is a little steeper than I wanted to go. #Protip: for the same style, but a fraction of the price, go this route.

Aside from WUN too many of these in various styles, my final purchase of the day was a serious game changer. Drum roll please, for the sweater I will surely try to get away with wearing every day….merino. leather. pocket. SWEATER. TUNIC. Oh baby. I hope you all love this because I plan to purchase this variation as well, and you will be seeing a lot of it. The only thing I love more than investment pieces are versatile pieces, and this sweet thing has got it all goin’ on. One more plus, use the code FALLSTYLE at checkout for 25% off at J Crew!

I’ll give my bank account a break for the rest of the day, but I make no promises as to what’s in store for next weekend….
