With fall shipments arriving almost everyday, it's hard to ignore the fact that school will be starting any minute now. Although I love summer and the lack of stress, homework, and 9 a.m. classes; my favorite season to dress for is fall. It is the Goldilocks of the seasons, not too hot and not too cold. Chilly mornings require jackets that can later be removed as the afternoons warm. The one season a year where I get the most wear out of all of my clothes, since I’m not limited to only my summer or only my winter wardrobe. When asked to put together a back to school lookbook, I wanted to accommodate people returning late August as well as early and late September.
One of my favorite parts of dressing for fall is an excuse to purchase a new pair of Frye boots. Whether wearing with pants or a dress, these Frye Ilana boots are a great statement piece and will only get better with time.
On Kate: Citizens of Humanity black army jacket $348, Maison Scotch fringe skirt $299, Caldera grey tee $104, Frye Ilana boot $348 and Ceri Hoover mini foldover $180
This outfit truly defines what fall is all about for me: layers! The Alexa Chung overall dress can be worn all year long, just add or subtract leggings, sweaters, t-shirts and jackets. This poncho is perfect for staying warm during those sunny but chilly fall days.
On Lucy: Alexa Chung for AG overall dress $275, Caldera black tee $81, Hat Attack fedora $95, Velvet Poncho $266 and Frye Jane Strappy in charcoal $398
Once you have one Rails shirt it’s nearly impossible to not buy more, and for those days you just can’t be bothered with pants this dress is perfect for being comfortable and stylish. Pairing it with a great denim jacket takes it from summer to fall with a snap of the fingers.
On Hannah C.: Frye Reina bootie $258, Rails dress $153 and Citizens of Humanity jean jacket $388
New York street style is notoriously black and basic. So with Stella attending Parsons in NYC this fall, we wanted to dress her in basics with a twist. The looker is one of my favorite Mother denim styles, and they get so much better with a zip and frayed hem.
On Stella: Cynthia Vincent crop sweater $245, Mother Looker zip fray $216, Clare Vivier foldover clutch $225 and Frye Jamie Zip Bootie $328
These are the perfect back to school jeans for those who still have to worry about dress codes, since they are high enough that crop tops can be worn without any skin showing. Paired with a great sneaker they are the perfect base to any outfit.
On Mckenzie: Alexa Chung for AG high-rise skinny $198, Tibi fringe crop top (G+A) $376, Frye Dylan high-top $258 and Clare Vivier foldover clutch $225
I’ve been lusting after this Alexa Chung skirt since she released her collection with AG. Avery will be returning to Loyola Marymount University in L.A. this fall, and this skirt is perfect for the warm days and cool nights that accompany Southern California winters, just add a jacket!
On Avery: Caldera long sleeve tee $86, Alexa Chung for AG button-front skirt $178, Vince platform $350 and Clare Vivier clutch $199
Hannah will be returning to U of O in the fall (Go Ducks!) and these culottes are perfect for the rainy weather since there’s no need to worry about getting the hem of your jeans wet. Not only are they practical, but absolutely adorable and a great staple piece to add to anybody’s wardrobe.
On Hannah F.: Citizens of Humanity culotte $238, Vince Platforms $275 and Clare Vivier Backpack $524
This is my favorite first day of high school look. There's nothing better than a basic jean dressed up with a cool graphic tee and an amazing bootie. This Anine Bing army jacket is perfect for cool Bend mornings and can be worn with a cashmere sweater when the temperatures really drop during the winter.
On Olivia: Alexa Chung for AG high rise skinny $198, Frye Reina bootie $258, Pam+Gela Partners in Crime tee $119 and Anine Bing army jacket $349
Bend weather always keeps me guessing, and for those days where the weather can’t choose between being hot or cold, a vest is the perfect inVESTment.
On Mckenna: Alexa Chung for AG straight leg $255, Frye Dylan high-top $258, Velvet faux fur hood vest $205 and Karrsen bat tee $72
For those days where I don’t want to figure out what to wear, jumpsuits are the perfect problem solver. They are better than dresses for colder weather since you don’t have to worry about tights or leggings, and throwing a sweater or shirt on top creates the illusion of pants giving this piece a lot of versatility.
On Peyton: Enza Costa french linen jumpsuit $249, Ulla Johnson poncho $374 and Frye Sasha moto shootie $278
3X1 is my new favorite denim line. Scott Morrison, the brand's designer, has celebrity clients such as Lebron James and cuts his women’s line on a men’s block making his denim memorable and unique. The cropped “baby boot” is a cool twist on a classic style that also accommodates the rainy weather of Eugene, where Hadlie will be attending U of O this fall.
On Hadlie: Cynthia Vincent embroidered crop tee (G+A) $195, 3X1 baby bootcut ripped jean $245, Anine Bing studded boot $699 and Clare Vivier Clutch $199
