    1. A pair of chic Western boots with memory foam insoles so you can spend all day at the apple orchard (or pumpkin patch) looking photo-ready without issue.

    2. A padded puffer vest with smooth, taffeta lining that is the perfect layering piece for transitional weather. It’s lightweight, cozy, and features two front pockets so you can stash all of your essentials when on the go. And the of-the-moment patterns help it stand apart from those puffers you wore in high school.

    5. A fresh backpack because the back-to-school season never looked so good! Whether or not you’re actually heading to classes this fall, you will love this bag’s laptop sleeve, adjustable straps, and roomy pockets — and once you realize how it's more comfortable than a heavy purse or tote bag, you may not want to go back.
