Fall Fashion Staples with JORD + Giveaway

Not to sound repetitive, but fall, ahhhh, my favorite time of year.  Nights get a little chillier, clothes get a little cozier, and fashion gets a little more fun.  There are several staples that everyone needs in their fall wardrobe and I’m going to share a few of my favorites.

O N E – Puffer Vests or Utility Vests

These have been all the rage for several years now and they are adorable with a long-sleeve tee, skinny jeans, and boots.  They are also uber warm for those of you who live in colder areas.  Down here in the south it doesn’t tend to get super cold, and that’s why I’m loving this vest. It’s very slim and not too bulky.




T W O – Boots

If boots over skinny jeans is wrong then I don’t want to be right.  This is my go-to look for all of fall and winter.  What did we ever wear before that?  



T H R E E – Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans look fabulous with pretty much any footwear – tall boots, booties, heels, flats, Converse… they are extremely versatile.  You can dress them up or you can dress them down.  I wear them non-stop during the winter.  My favorite pair (and the ones I’m wearing in these pictures) are these from Target.  They are comfortable, they have the perfect amount of stretch, and they don’t slide down when you bend over.  The fit is perfection and they just got a fresh batch of them, so buy away!


F O U R – A Flannel Shirt Dress… or any Flannel for That Matter…

My new favorite purchase is this flannel shirt dress from Target.  I saw the red and black one online and I was heading to grab it on my lunchbreak when Jennifer from Jenuine Happiness told me how beautiful the green one was in person.  Y’all, she was right!  So I bought the green one!  I love everything about this dress.  It’s comfy, it fits perfectly, and the details are so beautiful.  The inside of the dress is lined with black and white gingham for an extra pop of pattern when you roll up the sleeves.  So fun!



F I V E – Booties

I wasn’t so sure about booties when they first came out, but last season I finally embraced them, and I realized that they are perfect for dressy dresses and skirts that don’t look right with taller boots.  


S I X – Scarves

My love for scarves runs deep.  So deep.  The scarf trend is one that I have participated in from the very beginning.  I was the first of all of my friends to wear them, and one of the few in our city to start wearing them for fashion rather than the cold.  I got some weird looks in the beginning, but they have since exploded, and so has my collection.  They are perfect for spicing up an otherwise boring shirt, and these days you can find a scarf to go with pretty much any type of outfit.  





S E V E N – Flats

Since I live in the south, our winters are pretty mild, so flats are perfect for transitioning to fall and winter and they are also perfect for those odd warm winter days that are too hot for boots.  I have lots of flats and these days they come in all colors and funky patterns.  Oh, and they’re comfortable!



E I G H T – Leggings and Tunics

Holy comfort!  Anything that allows me to be appropriately dressed for the public, but feeling like I’m wearing PJs is okay in my book!



N I N E – Game Day Gear!

My personal favorite… If you’re a long time follower, then you know that we cheer for the Georgia Bulldogs.  I was born and raised a Dawg fan, and I bleed red and black.  We are all about the team spirit here on Saturdays.  Heck, I usually wear red and black Friday and Saturday during the fall.  And sometimes Sunday, too!



T E N – Accessories

Since fall and winter is full of long sleeves and layers, I tend to keep my jewelry (especially on my arms) pretty minimal as most of it gets covered up with sleeves anyway.  One thing that I’ve pretty much always worn since I was little is a watch.  I’ve always been a very punctual person, and time is always in the forefront of my mind.  




JORD has a gorgeous collection of watches that just screams fall.  Gorgeous dark browns, blacks, and burgundys are perfect for pairing with your fall wardrobe.  I loved my first JORD watch so much, that I have partnered with them again to showcase another one of their watches.  


The CORA Purpleheart & Mother of Pearl is stunning.  I may even like it better than my first JORD watch, the Fieldcrest in Zebra and Maple.  The CORA features sapphire crystal glass and Swarovski crystal markers, and the color of the wood against the mother of pearl is perfection.  The pictures don’t even do it justice. 

I have received tons of compliments on my first watch... numerous people have asked about it including my midwife’s assistant while I was in the middle of my annual checkup earlier this year.  Haha.  Probably too much info, but I’m just keeping it real over here like I always do!  At least it kept the conversation flowing so things didn’t get awkward!  Anyway, bottom line.  You’ll get lots of compliments and questions about this wrist watch.  



JORD has very graciously offered to give one of my lucky readers a $100 e-gift code for the website, and all other entries will receive a $20 e-gift code… everybody wins something!  The winner will automatically be picked and notified via email at the end of the giveaway.

Christmas will be here before you know it, people, and JORD makes women's watches as well as men's watches.  So even if you don’t want one for yourself, it would make the perfect gift for your husband… and your wives, men!  Do I have any male readers?!   

ENTER THE CONTEST HERE, FRIENDS!

And if you use your prize for a gift for someone else, put one of these on your Christmas wish list.  It will be the most unique watch you will ever own.

  7. I, too, love so many of these things for Fall/Winter. I sometimes wonder if others think I'm weird because I do like those little vests. Now, I know there's at least one other person in the world who thinks they're great and likes/wants to wear them too! :)

  9. YESSS...the green looks SO good on you! Love it. I also love how the color pops when you roll the sleeves too. So perfect for fall. Also, your Jord watch looks awesome with every single outfit. I have a vest in that exact color too...except mine is from Francescas, but they look almost identical. Double twinning, haha!

  18. I was this close to buying that green dress from Target the other day. I had it in my basket and everything. It's so cute! But then I didn't get it... Maybe the next time I go? Also, those jeans. I've been on the lookout for a cute pair of skinnies and those look perfect, I'll have to give them a try the next time I go. Thanks for the recommendation!

  23. Lindsay as you know I love your style. I am all down for everything you mentioned especially leggings, puffer vests, scarves and booties. Love that first outfit and as a matter of fact I am wearing a similar outfit in my blog today. It is the perfect mom look for Fall. My absolute fave here though, is the plaid green dress though. I am eyeing it too and since I am not shopping this month, hope Target has it in October cause this girl will buy it. LOL And I need the Purple Cora Jord Watch.
