I am probably a tad bit late in getting this Fall Fashion Guide post out, but can you blame me? I have been having way too much fun in places (rather destinations) where it was bright and shiny, and hot and humid (Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, and my most recent trip to NOLA) and in between all of my travels, Fall crept up on me even before I could bid Summer goodbye. Not that I am complaining, I can’t stand the heat (65F to 75F is my sweet spot), and especially when there is still ‘sunshine’ this time of the year in Seattle (very unusual BTW, cuz the last 3 years by this time it had already started to get gloomy and was drizzling, gah. OK, now let’s not jinx it!).
Anyhow, getting back to Fall, who doesn’t love this season eh? Fall (and Spring) are my 2 most favorite seasons. But Fall a little more than Spring I’d say, cuz this season really sets the tone for a nice and long few months of festivities that follow, starting with the changing colors, and Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice… I am not a #PSL kinda gal, but I do love all things pumpkin, and my home is currently brimming with all things Fall, pumpkin, and orange haha (and yes, I know, I owe you all a post on Fall Home Decor, promise to publish it real soon). 

And as far as Fall fashion goes, it is so much fun picking out clothes from your wardrobe and sprucing them up (layering, mixing and matching, and curling up on the couch with a hot mug of cocoa. Now I can’t explain how the last part falls under ‘Fall fashion’ but it.just.does, and I bet that you all agree too! LOL). 

On that note, today I want to share my Fall Wardrobe Must-Have Staples, a Fall Capsule Wardrobe if you will. This list is a nice blend of both basics and Fall fashion trends that you can’t go wrong with, of course, with hints of comfort and cozy, and the undying love for layers and details…
