If you are a regular in these parts then you KNOW how much I love Hampden Clothing. It’s one of my favorite stores in the world. I haven’t been in a while (it’s been a bit since my last trip to Charleston) so I was so excited when they asked me to “guest edit” for them (sharing my top 12 picks!)  and even more excited when they asked if I wanted to give one lucky reader of The Stripe a $500 gift card. Yes and yes! Below, you can find my top twelve essentials for fall… this was fun to put together!

Scroll to the end of the post to enter the giveaway via the widget, and comment below with what you would buy if you won. GOOD LUCK and Happy Friday! xoxo

Outfit Details: gifted SEA dress, gifted Loeffler Randall Boots, BaubleBar earrings

SEA dress, Chanel Bag, BaubleBar earrings

My Top Twelve Picks from Hampden this Fall…

one //

Ganni everything but especially their dresses. LOVE this navy wrap dress! I know I don’t shut up about this brand but the quality is so good and the styles are amazing!

two //

Rachel comey malachite earrings. Her earrings are the best and malachite is one of my favorite stones. Emerald green forever.

three //

My new favorite boots. I could not love these corduroy Loeffler Randall boots more. Besides pairing with a dress like I did here, love styling them with jeans and a big plaid blazer. They’ll be cute with tights too when it cools off a bit.

four //

Mansur gavriel’s new sweaters! I’m dying to get my hands on one in either rosa or sky blue. They are fuzzy and perfect looking – so happy this brand has expanded into more than just bags and shoes.

SEA dress

five //

This camel blazer. Because it’s just PERFECT.

six //

Emerald green everything. This is nothing new (it’s my favorite color) but it’s especially relevant for Fall as jewel tones are such a big trend. I love this Tibi top – the sleeves are perfection. I’d wear it tucked into a skirt or with high-waisted denim.

seven //

All of the oversized sweaters. LOVE this one. Tuck it into high-waisted girlfriend jeans or layer over leather leggings.

BaubleBar earrings

eight //

This checked tote. It’s so fun, right? I love it for errands or the office.

nine //

Patterned tunic dresses like this one. Perfect for when you don’t know what to wear and want to be comfortable. Just add black tights and booties (and maybe a belt at the waist).

ten //

swingy little tent dress. The point here is not to look skinny, it’s to look sassy. I love this one and would style it with tights and boots or sky high platform heels to make my legs look extra long.

eleven //

A good old grandpa blazer. My favorite trend for Fall. Love that there’s a bit of blue in this plaid.

twelve //

An elegant block heel. Wear with bare legs now (they’ll make your legs look sky high) or with jeans later.
