fashion friday: fall workwear with loft

fall dressing is the best, specifically layers and fun fabric textures. this season's palette includes tons of oxblood, garnet, maroon which I'm also loving. I work very close to a mall and it has become a bit of an issue lately, especially since loft has been doing their 40% off!

lately I've been updating some classic pieces for my work wardrobe such as this little black sheath dress, perfect for layering with tweed jackets and patterned sweaters. not to mention, I've already worn this flutter top in black multiple times and went back to pick it up in cream. the flippy dress has the most amazing texture and thick fabric, can't wait to throw on some booties and breeze out the door. I'm a huge fan of work day outfit ease and by focusing on basics, it makes getting ready a lot smoother. did I mention that these pants come in petite so I didn't even have to get them hemmed. sold!

over the past few months, I've really been working to get rid of superfluous inventory in my closet. I have a lot of pieces that are cute but I just don't wear them. I've found that I prefer to wear a lot of black so lately I've been tossing bright patterns and colors. having extra stuff in my closet that I don't wear is bothersome to me, and I've definitely made progress.

that being said, it feels good to bring in new basic pieces in solid colors. I could never have enough black tops. I'm looking forward to a solid fall season of workday dressing with these versatile picks from loft! 

have you done a big fall shopping trip this season? or do you prefer to pick up a piece at a time? what's your favorite fall shopping destination? or maybe don't tell me... since I obviously don't need more excuses to go shopping!
