Monday Must Have: Pre-Fall Picks

D.C. fashion blogger Alicia Tenise shares her favorite pre-fall picks for 2016

Lace-Up Top | Arrowhead Earrings
Off the Shoulder Dress | Denim Skort
Tassel Crossbody BagBlock Heels

Happy Labor Day, everyone! How has everyone’s weekend been so far? Mine has been pretty quiet; I’ll be leaving town to head to New York Fashion Week in a few days, so I’ve been running around getting ready for that and also getting my apartment in order! I always try to clean before I head out of town just so that I can come back to a clean and organized apartment.

Now that summer is unofficially over, I’ve had fall fashion on the brain. Trust me, I’m super bummed that my favorite season has come to a close, but I’m ready to throw in some fresh new pieces to my wardrobe! I’ve purchased some of these pieces in the last few weeks (this bag matches a lot of pieces, and these shoes are so comfortable!), and I’ve also thrown in some amazing fall items that are currently on my wishlist. 

Side note: I’m really digging and gravitating toward this blush/mauve shade for fall for some reason! Not a typical color I would rock for fall, but I just think it is super gorgeous!

What are some of your favorite fall trends?

  19. Love these ideas! I’m just ready for some fall weather so I can start wearing something other than sleeveless tops. 🙂 I think I’m most excited about pulling out my boots again.
