Plaid Scarf, Suede Skirt + WW Link Up

Happy Friday!  Can you believe that Halloween is only a couple of days away?  Does everyone have fun plans?  My sisters and I are throwing a costume party for the kids at the lake this weekend, and yes, us adults have to dress up too!  It will be a day of pumpkin carving, Halloween cookie decorating, and spooky games, which I'm sure will be a blast for the kids.  Make sure to follow along on Instagram or Snapchat (Rach480) to see all the fun, and what I end up wearing.

Although I thought it would be a fun idea to share a Halloween inspired look with you today, the truth is, I didn't get my act together and plan my costume far enough in advance.  So instead I'm sharing a cute look that is perfect for these cooler fall days.  There is nothing that screams fall more than plaid, and although I love wearing the occasional plaid shirt and coat, my favorite way to add the print to my look is with a scarf.  This scarf is from a boutique called Ilymix, and I couldn't love it more.  They have a beautiful selection of scarves and wraps, and this one is so soft, I can't stop wearing it.  Most of their scarves are under $25, which is a definite plus!  I decided to break out my suede skirt that I got from Topshop last year, and thought it made a perfect pairing with the scarf.  Suede skirts are such classic pieces, and although mine is no longer available,  I've linked some great currents options below.  A super soft knit (this one I cannot stop wearing) and pair of OTK boots completed my look.

Cozy sweaters, over the knee boots, suede skirts, and plaid scarves are my favorite fall pieces.  I'd love to hear, what are your favorite fall items?
