Fall Top Five.

So my BFF from law school has a really great super-lawyer job in Chicago.  She asked me if I would do a post on what she should be buying for fall, and yesterday was her birthday, so Natty, these are the things that you should be buying with your birthday/Big Law money.

1.  Tie-Front Blouse: Great for work or with jeans on the weekend.  And don't be afraid to tie a big bow - keep the bottoms tailored and it will be super chic.

1. BLK DNM Shirt 6 - $190.00 
2. Bellatrix Tie Neck Chiffon Blouse - $78.00 via Nordstrom
3. Pleione Dotted Tie Front Blouse - $68.00 via Nordstrom
4. Ark & Co. Tie-Neck Secretary Blouse - $49.00 via Piperlime
5. ASOS Pussybow Blouse - $54.89

2. Colorful Pants - Stick with skinny silhouettes, and choose a non-denim fabric to make them work for the office.  Personally, I like the cropped versions the best, but there are plenty of cute full-length options out there too.

1. J.Crew Wool Cafe Capri - $118.00
3. ASOS Slim Cropped Pant - $45.74
3. Zara Front Seam Trousers - $59.90

3. Vest - I'm a recent convert to Team Vest, but they really are fun and a great way to add something different to an outfit.  You've got tons of options here from faux fur to military styles... just please no puffers.

1. J.Crew Flak Trench Vest - $170.00 via Net-A-Porter
2. Rachel Roy Leather Hooded Vest - $229.00
3. Hive & Honey Shearling Vest - $69.00 via Piperlime
4. Damselle Faux Fur Vest - $98.00 via Nordstrom

4. Python Accessories - While leopard print is a classic and never goes out of style, the hottest animal print this season is definitely python.  I like it small doses like on a clutch or heels.

1. Ann Taylor Mini Python Pump - $178.00
2. Stephanie Johnson Medium Flat Pouch - $28.00 via Neiman Marcus
3. Leighelena Double Wrap Bracelet - $124.00 via Endless
4. Elaine Turner Bella Striped Python Clutch - $195.00 via National Jean Company

5. Pleated Maxi Skirt - One of my go-to summer styles, but if you layer it up with a cozy fisherman's sweater on top and thick tights underneath, you'll be able to wear it far into the fall and winter.

1. Aqua Distress Pleat Maxi Skirt - $88.00 via Bloomingdale's
2. ASOS Pleated Maxi Skirt - $91.48
3. Aryn K. Pleated Maxi Skirt - $66.00 via Piperlime

I would also include high-heeled loafers on this list, but I already did a post on those, and Fall Top Five sounds better than Fall Top Six anyway.  (Hope this helps, Nat!)
