Fall Essentials: Save vs. Splurge

Clearly I have a favorite color. But in my defense, my favorite color is also the easiest to match and can make you look super chic with minimal effort. I picked out a couple of my favorite trends to share with you that have staying power; I am a big proponent of building a wardrobe with solid pieces that will last for years.

Backpacks are big right now. They can be worn to the office or paired with a moto jacket for an edgier feel.

Moto jackets are probably my favorite part of the cooler months. I can toss a pair of leggings on, a breezy shirt, and the moto jacket instantly ups the ante.

At first, I did think these boots were going to look like I rolled out of a nightclub, but I have come to adore them, and own them in black and grey.

Five Faves: Fall Bootie Edition

Gorgeous Booties for Fall Style -AshleyDrach Blog

There are two types of people in this world, those hanging on to the last days of summer, and those who are jonesing for their Pumpkin Spice Latte fix. I am definitely counting down the days to when it is seasonally appropriate to start dressing for fall. It’s a little harder in Phoenix, I mean, it’s hot here until October. But I am not going to lie, Labor Day hits and I am rocking the plaid, the booties, and anything else I can justify without looking like a crazy person.

To kick off (ha) my Five Faves for fall, I am sharing some of my favorite booties. I picked these because I lean towards structured, staple items that fit my personal style. Sure, some of these are very on trend for the season, but most of these are re-wearable and I will get a TON of use out of them. Best part, they are all super affordable, at or under $100.
