My Style: A Few of My #ZapposStyle Fall Essentials

A few days ago, we talked about my must haves and wants for the fall; I mean that list was long. But what I really did not cover were the key pieces that I needed to have, the essentials, for my life to at least be on the right foot! Essentials are not fleeting, changing each season or fall, they are tried and true. These items I invest a bit more in or get a hell of a deal on, because they will be worn and live in my closet for AT ELAST two years. So, they have to be good.

AND NOW, that I am in a new town with a REAL FALL? This changes everything for me! I am excited and the pieces I have longed to live in? I can now get my life in because of the weather! So, today, I wanted to share with you, ONLY a few of my #ZapposStyle Fall Essentials.

My Style: A Few of My #ZapposStyle Fall Essentials

What is this ZapposStyle? Well, Zappos reached out to me to choose a few of my fall essentials and with that, I chose three from opposite corners of the world. I have been dying for a nude-to-me pointed toe heel, a new leather moto or bomber jacket, and I can never tire of chunky knits! I have quite a few over the knee boots, what I am on the hunt for? Is the THIGH HIGH boot option, with a heel- I could not find this at Zappos (because: wider calf), so I chose these three!

Item #1: My Jessica Simpson Nude-to-Me Pointed Toe Heels

I am living for these. LIVING you hear me?! With denim, bold hued skirts and dresses, I mean… with everything, I now have a pair of heels that speak my color and language. Maybe I should go and buy another pair for backup? You can snag these shoes here!

Yeah, so there are times when my black tried and true Marina Rinaldi leather Moto does not work. Black is too harsh or it doesn’t mesh, this is where I imagine my new brown leather moto will take front and center! Score this jacket HERE!

Worn with: City Chic Sheer Stripe Top and City Chic Skinny Cuffed Jeans

Item #3: My BB Dakota Chunky Knit Sweater
