Everything you need to elevate your fall aesthetic this year

August really did slip away into a moment in time, because we're coming up on the official start of autumn.  To celebrate the season of pumpkin spice and everything nice, we've packed that irresistible fall aesthetic into a list of essentials that will totally elevate your day-to-day. 

Scented candles


Believe us, there's no such thing as too many candles. Whether it's warm vanilla, spiced cider or morning mist, there's no better way to set the mood for a cozy night study sesh. Super dark academia.

The perf personal scent

Candles make your room smell good, but perfume makes *you* smell good—and we all love a fragrant queen. After all, you know what they say: A good perfume is a girl's best friend.

A trusty tote


Forget fall: Tote bags are a year-round essential. They're the best way to carry around all your must-haves in style, and you can tote-ally (get it?) personalize the canvas to reflect your own aesthetic.

Gold jewelry

Ana Luisa, $60

No outfit is complete without accessories, but gold just perfectly brings that rich autumnal glow to already amazing pieces. This pendant necklace is classy *and* timeless.

Boots for stomping


Chunky boots are here to elevate your fall style—literally. After all, these boots were made for walking, so strut your stuff, gf.

Your trusty TBR


Yup, reading is cool again, and thank goodness for that. Bookworms already know that curling up with a good book is the cure to any bad day. If you're not a seasoned reader, plan out a TBR to keep you on track. Here's a Rory Gilmore-inspired one to get you started!

Moody playlist + headphones

Music, music, music—what's life without it? Invest in some quality headphones or earbuds to keep the tunes going all season long. If you need any ideas, GL's Spotify is a treasure trove of playlists for every vibe (like, ever).
