Elevated Fall Basics

Ann Taylor leopard pumps

Happy Wednesday! I’m so excited to share this post with you. I feel like it’s been a minute since I’ve worn heels and felt like an adult, lol. Ever since having Harper I’ve really lived in casual wear or athleisure pieces. I haven’t felt the need to “get dressed” if you will and then I threw on a pair of leopard heels and this gorgeous wrap coat and man, it’s been a game changer. I feel like a whole different person, but in a good way. As a new mom, It’s almost like you need to get dressed and feel put together every once in a while. It’s good for the soul.

Ann Taylor fall collection

Ann Taylor has always been a go-to when it comes to elevated basics and transitional workwear. I also happen to love that they carry petite sizing and the fact that it runs TTS. I have a nude coat from a few years back that is still one of my favorite outerwear pieces to date. Ann Taylor’s new collection focuses on cozy, chic, layering pieces for fall. This coat is a must-have! The wrap style is timeless and just so cozy, but elevated at the same time. These dark wash jeans are flattering and work well in the workplace, but can be dressed down for an off-duty look. I also absolutely adore this sweater. The puff shoulder detail is a nice twist on a basic sweater and I love the crisp, bright white color. You can easily wear this outfit to work, but transition each piece individually for a cozy weekend look as well. Ann Taylor does such a good job in making pieces that work no matter the occasion.

There’s so many great fall layering pieces I love right now. This camel coatigan is gorgeous, this striped turtleneck is such a classic piece, and these brown booties are perfect for this time of year. Be sure to check out the entire collection here
