As seasons change and you’re due for a serious wardrobe update, shopping for this season’s trendy staples can get a bit overwhelming. So many options! For this week’s 5 Friday Faves, I wanted to put together a little shopping guide for you, for items that every girl needs in her Fall wardrobe.
1. Favorite scarf – I recently added this scarf in the photo to my fall wardrobe, and it was the best $17 I’ve spent in a while! So soft, and all the colors make it so versatile.
2. Favorite denim shirt – You can’t have a fall wardrobe without a denim shirt in your closet. Perfect for layering under sweaters, or an easy “throw on and go” top.
3. Favorite flats – I’m crazy about the d’Orsay flat right now, and when I saw these in grey, I knew I had to have them!
4. Favorite fall lip color – Laura Mercier creme smooth lip color in “damask”. I love this color because its not too “red, red”, but is still bold and beautiful. The creme lip color also makes your lips super soft and has a long wear to it!
5. Favorite fur vest – I feel like the fur vest has officially moved from a trend item to a staple. This vest is my personal fave because it’s still on trend but the grey color makes it unique! The length is perfect and I love the smokey effect on the fur.
There was a time when a girl needed maybe one or two coats in her Fall wardrobe – one dressy, one casual. Done.
I love though that this season, outerwear is a huge trend. It’s no longer just a basic item you need to keep you warm – it’s an outfit-completer. An essential accessory. So, in this case, your mentality with outerwear this season should be “the more the merrier!”
I love this black & white coat below because it’s lightweight, super soft, and can easily be dressed up or down. (Side note – I’m also crazy about my new relaxed skinny jeans! Finally found the perfect distressed denim).
I was also in Forever 21 yesterday and fell in love with this tweed pea coat and added it to my mental wish list! (+ you can’t beat $42.90 for a good fall coat!)
And remember this guy? A good leather (or pleather!) jacket is essential to every fall wardrobe.
For our 5 Friday Faves this week, we’ve picked our top 5 fitness items! Working out and running is such a huge part of both mine and Lo’s lives, so we wanted to share the items with ya’ll that make working out so much more enjoyable for us!
1. Favorite sports bra:
This all depends on your activity. If it’s for a highly active/intense workout, I love to have a lot of support, which is why the Under Armor Eclipse sports bra is my fave. If its for light activity (walking, yoga, etc.) you can’t go wrong with a good Target sports bra. So comfortable and easy to wear all the time (but, try and resist!). I have this in probably 4 different colors…
2. Favorite running shoe:
For everyday running, the Nike LunarEclipse takes the cake. What I love about Nike is that they manage to make an amazing product, but keep style in mind at the same time! I love this turquoise LunarEclipse.
3. Favorite workout companion:
Fitbit flex. I had been wanting a steps tracking device for a while and did my research on the different brands. I was won over by the amazing reviews for the fitbit flex and all of it’s capabilities. And, let’s be honest, it was the cutest one. It tracks my steps throughout the day, mileage from my runs, and my sleep at night. My husband bought it for me a few months ago and it has not left my wrist since!
4. Favorite running sock:
Crazy to think that such a small item makes such a massive difference in running; but it does! I love these tab back socks because they keep your feet from blistering, the sock doesn’t slip down into your shoe, and provides the support your foot needs.
5. Favorite pre-work out snack: banana and almond butter – every time! My favorite almond butter is from Trader Joe’s.

Wait…it’s currently a trend to wear loose, slouchy pajama-ish pants outside of your house? Sign me up for that please! I found my favorite black slouchy pant a few weeks ago and have more than gotten my money’s worth since! I love that these can be great both for work or running errands. I feel so girly and chic every time I wear them, without sacrificing comfort.

I’m also such a sucker for pairing all black with denim. A good denim jacket is an absolute staple in every wardrobe. (Bonus! Mine from LOFT is currently 50% off!)
So, happy slouching everyone. Shop my look here!
Everyone loves Fall for the thick scarves and riding boots and warm flannel. I fall into that category as well, but one thing I love particularly about this time of year is the transition. We’re not quite to the flannel yet so our current outfits are a beautiful mix of summer and fall wardrobes. We don’t have to say goodbye to the tank tops just yet, because you can still throw a scarf over it and be ready for the day (at least in Texas!). Scarves with tank tops, sweaters with shorts, v-neck tees with fall hats…I love these combos!
I had gotten a few requests from my instagram (@laurenkaysims) this weekend about a sweater I wore on a road trip to San Antonio with my hubby, and this is definitely one of the “transition” looks I’m referring to.
Lo and I had recently been talking about her favorite jeans (below) which complete her “transition” look so perfectly! A good pair of skinnies are essential for every Fall wardrobe.
Random fact: one of my favorite things about writing for LOLO Mag is getting to hear what some of Lo’s “5 Friday Faves” are. I love learning from other people and she’s always calling out product or brands that a lot of times are new to me and great additions to my closet or home! So, for this week, the first 3 are favorites of Lo’s, the last two are mine. xx
