Had your fill of awkward wanna be fashion blogger poses yet?
And please don't mind our lovely stained concrete patio...

Anyhoo... I've started to compile and organize a fall capsule wardrobe (more on this concept later) and I'm feeling much more prepared for the season than I was a few weeks ago. I've taken advantage of some sales recently and have been able to keep a lot of my outfits budget friendly, while still feeling stylish and up to date.

I wanted to start sharing my favorite fall pieces in a "fall basics" series on the blog. Over the next couple months I will share photos of outfits that include all my current fall fashion staples. First up, the classic plaid shirt.

Nothing screams 'fall' more than a flannel plaid shirt, am I right? This shirt is so cozy and warm! FYI, I took these photos in 90 degree heat and was sweating immediately after... Oh, the sacrifices we make for the blog!

Also, these booties are most likely going to be a staple this season! They are the perfect neutral shade to go with any outfit and they are so comfortable! I am a huge fan of comfort meets style these days!

Here are some other options for the pieces of this fall ensemble (click on the image to link to the source):
