As the weather transitions, it’s the perfect time to take inventory of your wardrobe and prep it with essentials for the cooler weather heading your way. One of my favorite places to buy investment pieces for each season is SAKS. So today I’m sharing essential fall wardrobe items I own or items that are on my current wishlist from Saks. And best of all, they’re having their Friends and Family Sale, so you can score major deals on amazing pieces that rarely go on sale.

Thank you to Saks for sponsoring today’s post

Essential Fall Wardrobe Items from Saks

As you transition your wardrobe from summer to fall clothing, it’s important to have the basics, so that you can build different outfits with core pieces. Because you reach for these pieces again and again, it makes sense to spend a little more on quality pieces that will last you season to season. In the end, you can actually save money in the long run because you aren’t replacing them every season.


This lace blouse is one you’ve seen me style many times before. It looks high-end for the price point, and comes in multiple colors. You can style it more casually like I did here with denim jeans, or you can also style with a midi skirt or trousers for a chic workwear look. It runs tts and I’m wearing a small.


Saks has an amazing selection of denim jeans at varying price points to fit any budget. Denim jeans are such a staple piece for the fall and winter. With this sale, it’s the perfect time to grab a pair or two for the upcoming season and for years to come.

I wish I discovered these skinny denim jeans years ago. They fit my short torso and 5’5” frame perfectly, and they have a little extra stretch to make them very comfortable. I’m wearing size 28 and they run tts, if you’re between, I would size down since they have some stretch.


Every closet needs a quality pair of knee-high boots and booties in their fall closet. These knee-high boots have a block 3.5 inch heel, and come in a few other color variations. They fit tts for my boot size, which is a half up from my normal. The boots have a more narrow calf opening, and considering there are no zippers they were surprisingly very easy to slip off and on. I’ve never owned a pair of leather boots that had a leather sole, which is typical of nicer quality shoes, and I have to say I could feel the difference walking around in these boots. These boots classic fall and winter essential you will reach for year after year.

Favorite Finds from Saks

If you’re looking for a new perfume to try, I’d suggest this Maison Francis Kurkdjian perfume. Everytime I wear it, reminds me of a girls trip to New York City where I first discovered it. It’s funny how you attach scents to a time of year or a certain memory.

I found the perfect cocktail dress for an upcoming event, and has all my favorite elements in a dress. The blush pink color coupled with the large accent bow is feminine, classic and right up my alley! I ordered my normal size 6.

You’ve also seen these Penny Knot mules on me a time or two. 🙂 They’re my go-to fun shoe that pair well with both dresses and jeans. They’re very comfortable because of the height of the heel and l Iove the pleating and bow detail. These mules run small and narrow, so size up one. Also found THESE mules that are darling too. Perfect for a bride-to-be!

Another fall essential wardrobe item that I love from Saks is this cardigan. The detailing of the applique collar is what sets this apart from many other cardigans I’ve seen recently. You can wear it buttoned up or left open and pair a bodysuit underneath. This runs true to size.

One of my favorite beauty products you can get at Saks right now is this Olaplex bonding oil. This will last you forever because a little bit goes a long way. It’s a weightless styling oil that serves as a heat protector of up to 450 degrees. It helps increase shine and softness and minimize flyaways (postpartum hair regrowth – I’m looking at you) and frizz.

If you’re looking for something to fill in any gaps in your fall wardrobe, take advantage of this Friends and Family sale at Saks!
