Autumn in the Air

     I've already found some of my favorite staples for fall thanks to my weekly stops to my favorite place, Target.  There aren't many things more enjoyable to me than a leisurely stroll down Target's many aisles, and they always have everything we need (and so many things we don't, but must have!) for each season.  Their latest fall collection does not disappoint!  In the clothing department they have some adorable fall prints + colors, overalls, jumpers, + sweater dresses.  As always, they also have a great selection of super affordable and on-trend boots and booties: these western-inspired pair being my favorite.  I'm thinking that I'll be wearing these with just about everything this fall and winter- you can dress them up or down, and the side-slit detail makes them super flattering and unique!  I paired them with this adorable overall dress also from Target (and just one example of the cute autumn-inspired prints they have), and one of our velvet choker necklaces- a super-chic must-have for fall.  You can shop this entire look featuring some of my favorite fall staples below!
