I always gravitate toward neutrals, especially when it comes to fall pieces. I mean how can you go wrong with a cozy taupe sweater or a gray scarf? Bold colors can be intimidating during the fall months. Tans fade, your complexion becomes milkier; hot pink doesn’t look so cute when you’re resembling Casper. But with recent life changes and risks that have proven to work out in my favor, I decided to give add some bold pieces to my fall wardrobe. This full sleeve red top turned out to be an immediate success. The bold red complements my (slightly) new hair color, and I paired it with my favorite heeled mules. Venturing outside of my comfort zone has not only propelled my growth, but it has also opened my eyes to other and new passions. Whether you wear something you thought you’d never wear, accept a job in a different field or decide to try out a new sport, take a leap outside of your comfort zone and see where it takes you. If it doesn’t work out, at least you can say you tried something new.

As the fall weather settles in, I’m gathering my favorite pieces to prepare for the full transition. I’ve always been a fan of turtlenecks. Not only are they cozy and comfortable, but I like how they frame your face. Is that weird? Anyway, to break up wardrobe monotony, I always like to have a few staple dresses on hand for the fall season. Some dresses are more comfortable than others and sometimes it’s difficult to wear a dress when it’s cold out because, let’s face it, that cozy sweater and stretch denim pants feel so much better. And don’t get me started on tights. Recently, I’ve felt like a stuffed sausage in them, not to mention it makes wearing dresses a small task. However, this long sleeve turtleneck dress from J.Jill’s Pure Jill Luxe Tencel collection is the coziest dress you’ll find all season. It’s ultra soft and I cinched the waist a bit with this colorblock belt from Fossil. It breaks up the solid color and adds sophistication to this comfy casual dress. J.Jill’s Pure Jill Luxe Tencel collection consists of a variety of sweaters, pants, tunics and dresses that are all made of an exclusive fabric blend (tencel/poly/spandex), that is fluid and lightweight with an incredible hand feel. Tencel® is a natural botanic fiber, more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen – because of these properties even those with sensitive skin can wear this fabric with ease. This collection launches this week, on October 20th, so if you’re looking for cozy fall staples just hang on until Thursday and stock up on these comfy garments.
