I really don’t want to kiss summer goodbye, but fall is officially around the corner. And a seasonal change often means what? Of course: color shifts and a new wardrob! Below I’ve put together a fall outfit with some of my favorite fall essentials in the usual autumny, earthy tones. You like it? What are your favorite items to wear in the fall?

Stella McCartney is one of those designers that has a cult following. Those who are fashionably loyal to her are fiercely loyal. If you’re one of those people, then what better way to wear your heart on your feet than to nab a design that Stella herself wears? The shoes have so many great qualities, but number one in my mind is that cork matches everything, making them a go-to in any closet.

Update (05/30/2014): After 4 years after the last find, we managed to find this wedge cork sandal by ALDO which is a great alternative to the Stella McCartney wedges above, don’t you agree?
ALDO “Rowberry” Cork Wedge Sandals
Also available at ALDO (Canada).
Jeffrey Campbell brings us a true steal. Not only is their cork wedge a great match at a better price, but it’s also partially environmentally friendly since cork is a sustainable material. Pair them with jeans, shorts, skirts and dresses for a casually cool summer ensemble.

The Rebecca Minkoff Boyfriend Crossbody Bag is very in right now, as it is the It bag making its appearance among quite a few celebrities. The hardware inspired embellishments along with the chained strap add a touch of masculinity but in a feminine way. It’s the perfect size if you’re on the go, or it can be simultaneously transformed into a clutch for a night out of town look. I especially love the military green color Shenae Grimes and Ashley Greene are sporting, too bad it’s $295.

UPDATE (01/26/2012): Look at this fantastic Rebecca Minkoff look-a-like by High Fashion! Isn’t it just lovely? Real leather? Uhm, yes, please. Available in cognac or dark brown.

This is a great alternative to the Rebecca Minkoff bag as it is practically identical to it but also very much budget-friendly. The Steve Madden “Brocks” handbag incorporates the same idea of masculinity in a chic way. It is available in scarlet red, black and light blue.

Summer is here! And I’m telling you there is nothing better than having a pair of amazing espadrilles in your wardrobe! I’m a big fan of these Paloma Barceló Velati Wedges. I really love the earth tone colors, and the wrap around strap! I’m just not a big fan of the price! At $225.95 I think we can get a better deal than this!
Paloma Barceló Velati Wedges
P.S.: Also available in coral & navy at NET-A-PORTER ($315).
So, it may not have the braided detail at the bottom of the wedge, but I love how similar these are in design to the Paloma Barceló Velati Wedges! I really love the deep green color! The black is pretty stylish too, yet if it was me I’d definitely snag the green color! Priced at $175.42 at ASOS I think this is a much better bargain!
