I was recently asked to share my “fall essentials,” and this outfit conveniently incorporated some of them. This is a look I can see myself wearing repeatedly without tiring of any one element—and it can easily be updated: swap the OTK boots for UGG booties, trade the neutral wool coat for a colorful fur jacket, try a corduroy mini in place of jean leggings, carry a toy bag instead of the practical satchel, or replace the surplice top with a warm sweater. The possibilities are exciting, if not staggering!
