Lindsay’s Fall Essentials


I absolutely love the fall. Growing up in Wisconsin this was such a gorgeous time of year with the trees changing colors and the cool weather in the air.  I find that I am drawn to navy, yellow, grey and orange tones that shine throughout Wisconsin during the fall months.

Well I’d love to say that I’m wearing all these items on my list already, however we are having a heat wave here in Southern California! So for now I’m just dreaming up the perfect look for each…

Lindsay's Top 10 Fall Essentials // Modish and Main

1. Grace + Lace Leg Warmers  // 2. Chloe Hobo Bag  // 3. J.Crew Ivory Blouse // 4. Stella & Dot Statement Earrings  // 5. J.Crew Drapey Pant  // 6. Anthropologie Navy Blazer // 7. Josie Maran Coconut Eyeshadow // 8. Sole Society Bootie // 9. Michael Kors Pumps // 10. West Elm Pillows

As soon as the weather cools down, I cannot wait to get a pair of these Grace & Lace leg warmers! They are sweet and sexy at the same time.  What a great way to dress up a pair of skinny jeans or keep warm while wearing a dress.

I may never be one to splurge on a handbag, but this Chloe bag has me thinking more than twice about it.  It’s such a great classic color but the shape is one of a kind.  I find myself continually trying this on at Nordstrom any time I can. A girl can dream….

Blazers should be an essential in our closets for fall & I’m always on the hunt for that perfect blazer that is not too boring and basic. I have to say Anthropologie has hit it out of the park with this one.  From the feminine shape to the lace detail it’s a must have in my closet and you will want to pick this one up too!

Even though I am with my two little boys during the day, I love finding an outfit that can take me from day to night.  This drapey sweatpant from J.Crew is a must! I plan on pairing it with a white tank on a sunny day and then at night dress it up with this gorgeous ivory blouse and a great pair of heels. Speaking of heels, since I don’t wear them too often I’m always super particular when it comes to finding the perfect pair. To fit my style I’ll throw these gorgeous Michael Kors pumps on with my favorite skinny or boyfriend jeans cuffed at the ankle.  These will really help me feel gorgeous no matter what is happening that day.  Sometimes a girl just needs to strut her stuff in heels & get that little boost of confidence!

Being that I never leave home without jewelry & my favorite accessory is earrings, you can’t go wrong with these Stella & Dot statement earrings.  I love the splash of color and the unique vintage feel (plus they’d look great with all these navy & ivory pieces!).

Finish off your whole look with a simple, pretty and eco-friendly beauty routine (your skin will thank you!).  What better way to achieve this then with Josie Maran’s Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow.  Not only is it easy to apply but it’s good for your lids too!

Since we recently bought a new home and it’s really needing some love, these West Elm pillows add just a hint of fall color with an interesting pattern.  They can be added to what you may already have or thrown on alone to give an instant update.

What are you fall essentials, we’d love to hear!

Keep Living a Stylized Life.
