    Babe! Just a note, do you mean upgrade your wardrobe for spring in your title? Because I noticed you said fall haha.
    nonetheless these are great pieces for the transitioning season. It’s always much colder but not nearly enough for the bulk of a winter jacket so it’s a tricky time to find out what looks best. Great list of selections – some pieces definitely caught my eye


    • Hey girl – haha no its Fall here in Australia!! Remember our seasons are reversed down here to you guys xx

  • Uuu, you’ve picked up some very nice and classy pieces! I’d definitely go for some classic style next season. But now I can’t wait for spring and start wearing my favourite dresses! <3

    Cheers, Eliza | http://www.fashion-confession.com

  • Helen, I totally forgot you live in Australia and when I started to read your blog and saw your Fall picks I wanted to say Girl is spring not fall 🙂
    I love all your picks and I’m having a Gucci fever lately too. I just came from Gucci store and almost purchased a pair of loafers. Also love that double breasted blazer as well!

Really love the Gucci bags and the skirt selections.

Your wish lists always inspire me to get things I don’t need, but I really want haha. Thanks for sharing all of these beautiful options for fall babe. I’d wear some of these year round!

    Those selections are so amazing!!! My favourites are the jacket selection which I wana add to my wardrobe! I have a weak spot for shoes and those booties are really great picks!

  • Sarah Atiq

    There are so many amazing essentials on your list. I think I am adding most of them to my own wish list. My favourites are the distressed high-rise boyfriend jeans and the stunning Bell Sleeves Blazer by Rejina Pyo. For the accessories I love the DVF Satin Blue clutch, that colour is seriously stunning. And the silver boots are a total must have, that we could wear all year around.


  • Thomas Falkenstedt

    There are so many beautiful pieces here, but I could totally rock a floral bomber and that flamingo sweater for sure!! Absolutely love them. 🙂
