Confession: I’ve already started getting excited about fall clothes. As much as I’m enjoying the current season, it’s hard to wear anything but shorts and tee-shirts when it’s 85° out (with 70% humidity, no less) – and that uniform can get a little boring (and quite frankly, depressing) when I see all the bright dresses and patterned blazers hanging in my closet. I found a ton of gorgeous and simple neutral pieces on sale at H&M, plus seriously cool gold jewelry on Baublebar – and it all fits in perfectly with the edgy, slightly sporty vibe I lean towards in the fall months.

1: I’m a total sucker for leather accents, be they faux or real. The stripe down the front of this dress is the perfect statement, and the shape and proportions of the dress are just right – the long sleeves balance out the shorter skirt, which makes it a great transition piece.

2: I was hesitant about the sneaker trend at first, but now I’ve totally jumped on the bandwagon. I’m completely in love with this pair from H&M (and I might have squealed a little when I saw the price). They’re the perfect mix of statement-making pattern and goes-with-everything neutral.

3: I still love statement necklaces. This incredible number from Baublebar is, perhaps, the queen of all statement necklaces. It’s simple and seriously cool.

4: I have a big thing for two-part rings, like this one from Baublebar. With a simple, neutral outfit, it’s really the only accessory you need.

5: This clutch from ASOS is sleek and modern with a cool texture and zipper placement – it reminds me of a modern take on one of my favorite vintage clutches.
