I said I wasn't going to do it so soon, but I've had fall fashion on the brain lately. Something about late August puts me in a fall state of mind. Today on Currently Kherington, I am sharing 5 fall fashion must haves I recently scored at Uptown Cheapskate, a new thrift store in Grand Rapids!

Utilitarian Outerwear
One of my favorite aspects of fall fashion is the art of layering, + nothing screams fall more than a utilitarian piece. I featured my utility jacket last year {here}, but this trench vest is EVERYTHING! The best part? It's actually a piece I had my eye on last year from the Who What Wear Collection. Prepare for this find to be on heavy rotation in the months to come. 

The Cross Body Bag
Since fall means putting on more layers, I like to keep my accessories as lightweight as possible. A cross body bag is my fall bestie, especially as a mom chasing around a two year old majority of my day. This neutral color will mix + match with my existing wardrobe. + don't think that fringe stops at Coachella, this detail adds interest to any fall look! 

Classic Sweater
I don't know about where you live, but Michigan calls for a strong sweater game when the weather shifts. Since sweaters are a fall staple, I like to stick to neutral options that will complement a variety of pieces. This oatmeal shade will be a major contender when it comes to my seasonal #ootd. 

A Killer Pair of Jeans
Something about fall makes me step up my jean selection. A killer pair of jeans is a MUST have + this printed pair is everything that I never knew I needed. Fortunately, I am all set with the basic pairs like black, distressed, + even green. + floral print seems to play well with a fall setting. 

Neutral Ankle Boots
If you are going to invest in anything this season, a neutral pair of ankle boots should be on your radar. I like to opt for a block heel, not only for the purpose of comfort, but also the style. {+ you know how I feel about bringing comfort + style together.} I was so excited to find these beauties at Uptown Cheapskate since I have been on the hunt for a pair of ankle boots in this color family. They will literally go with everything, from my favorite pair of skinnies to a shirtdress with tights.

  1. Neutral ankle boots have been my definite go-to for Fall the past few years! They're also the ONLY heels I can comfortably wear. I really love your look!

    1. Thank you! Yes! Ankle boots are a must, especially with a block heel. Comfort is always key.

  2. I love the vest! I hadn't noticed how we start wearing more crossbody bags in fall, it's so true! We're going to store those basket bags soon...


    1. So true + thank you, Cristina! I just naturally reach for a cross body because #momlife, but I wear them even more in the fall.
