Who doesn’t love a good fall basic? I can be about as basic as they come and I can’t even apologize for it! I love basics for every season, but I do think fall basics are my favorite! Just add coffee + a good cardigan, and call it a win! Today I’m sharing several of my favorite fall basics that are all affordable from my favorite place to shop, Nordstrom!

The Best Basics For Fall
When thinking basics for fall, think layers. When the temps are still cool in the morning, you’re sweating by lunch time and then freezing again before bed, you know it’s a season change. That’s why I love layers and basics are the best for that!
I have been drawn to everything neutral lately, so this outfit is basically as basic as they come. White and cream is my go-to combo already for fall and I can’t get enough lightweight layering tanks like this ruffle one. It comes in several colors, so I’ll probably be grabbing a few more!
I also love a good cardigan for layering. I always try to go for quality and color when choosing a cardigan. This one is perfect for wearing with just about any color, and I know that the quality will last me through spring when I will need a cardigan again! It’s just heavy enough, but light enough to not feel bulky. The ruffle detail on the back is such a fun detail, too! I have my eye on this one and this one as well!
Jeans and booties are another fall basic must-have. I always spend a little more on these pieces as I know I am going to wear them enough to justify the cost. These jeans are by far one of my favorite recent purchases because they have just enough distress and they’re the perfect color. You can’t beat that they are under $100 but still feel like they are designer! These booties are a great option for close-toed shoes during the fall transition with the open sides but you can for sure wear them into winter!
The best part about finding great basics is you can mix and match all of your pieces with things you already own or new things to give it a flair! Adding a fun necklace like this chunky one just gives it a fun detail!
Nordstrom is always my go-to for shopping basics since they have the best selection and best customer service. I always have to order online so I never know what will fit. Nordstrom makes the return process so easy that I know I will be able to keep exactly what I want but send back the things that didn’t work with the enclosed return label. It’s super simple, even for those of us who don’t live close to a retail store. I’m always blown away with the customer service, quality of shipping and of course just LOVE the options that are available. If something isn’t in your size or color, you can check for restocks which happen often!
I’m loving all of these layers, basics and booties for fall! I also wanted to share how you can mix and match these pieces with several other things, so I’ll be taking some of these same pieces and creating different outfits for yall! What are some of your favorite pieces for fall? Do you lean on the side of basic or go more for flare? Or do you grab the basics and add a flare?

I hope all of you have the best week! We’re spending the day traveling home from a great, much needed girls weekend in Dallas. I never look forward to these weekends ending, the laundry or the “detox” from no sleep and minimal rules…but I do miss the laughter and love which makes all of the memories made worth it! Have a blessed week, lovelies!
