There are three things I want in my closet at all times in an effort to create the perfect casual outfit for fall: A good great sweater, perfect fitting denim, and a top layering piece.

A great cable knit sweater

When I first saw this sweater (under $30!), I waited a day too late to purchase. Bummer.

LUCKILY, I kept being obsessive persistent and one day I checked the site, and BAM! The sweater was staring at me. I also know I say this a lot, but no joke, I’ve worn it at least three times a week since I bought it. It’s so oversized (I’m wearing my normal size S), and extremely warm and cozy. So yeah, it’s too easy to wear on a daily basis – and I even wore it on Thanksgiving! It really is the perfect way to create a casual outfit for fall.


Perfect fitting denim

I never would consider myself a denim girl…but when I look in my closet, I have about 10-15 pairs of jeans. OOPS.

Normally I gravitate towards my go-to dark skinny jeans (these are 50% off!!!), but when I saw these for UNDER $100, I knew they needed to be mine. I ordered my normal size and they fit me unbelievably well. They don’t have much stretch, but still are somehow really comfortable. Since I’m short, I love that these jeans are high waisted and cuff just the way I want them to! I definitely have put my dark wash jeans on the back burner and am finding more ways to the casual outfit for fall with this pair of jeans!


The layering piece

I also recently picked up this coat. And let me tell you….major heart eyes. I’ve been wanting a plaid coat ever since I laid eyes on this one, but I just didn’t want to pay the price. This plaid option is absolutely perfect. It’s a bit on the lighter side, so I wouldn’t look to wear it if I wasn’t wearing this sweater underneath, but it still works! I also found this great option that looks like it would be a bit warmer if that’s what you’re looking for!

I’m clearly on a plaid layering piece kick, because I also picked up this bomber and right now it’s 40% off! It has a really cozy inside lining too, which is great for added warmth AND the perfect addition to your perfect casual fall look!

    I’m taking a moment to just swoon over this entire outfit. Wait, the moment isn’t ending haha! I’m in love with every inch of this look! From that fabulous statement coat, to the cozy sweater, the distressed denim, and your perfect flats and sunnies. It’s classy, comfy, and just GORGEOUS. I’m also pretty convinced I need every piece! Beautiful style, girl!
