Must-Have Fall Wardrobe Staples

Fall clothes are the best clothes. 🍂 From sweaters and knits, to boots and jackets and beyond, cooler weather lets us ease into cozier side of our wardrobes. Liz and Laura are giving a peek into their closets and tell us the pieces they reach for year after year. They also give tips on how to transition from warm days to cool nights, the cutest items and color palettes that are trending right now, the best sweater shapes that work for them, and the classic staples you're *always* going to be glad you invested in. They also answer a very important question: are we still doing scarves?

A Blessing for Your Week

I hope this fall season is filled with the most wonderful things.

I hope you feel the cool, crisp breeze on your cheeks as you go apple picking, or watch a football game, or go on a hike in the woods.

I hope you have everything you need to enjoy the season ahead, and remember to take the time to get lost in it for a little while.

So enjoy the fiery trees and warm cinnamon scents and the sound of leaves crunching under your feet.

Just soak it all in, and may the joy of the season restore your soul.

Simplicity Tip of the Week

Have you discovered the magic of a coat hook by the door?

If you get tired of seeing coats and jackets tossed around, then let me tell you: just buy some coat hooks or a mounted coat rack you can put by the door. If you don’t feel like putting something on your walls, that’s okay—you can get a standing coat rack that’ll work just as well.

Sometimes all it takes is designating a place for your things, and you’ll be surprised how they’ll magically find themselves there—and off your tables and floors and everywhere else that coats don’t belong.
