Christy Ford & Susie Matheson

Fall is in full swing (even as temperatures continue to fluctuate), which means it’s time to finally embark on a wardrobe refresh. As we get ready to convert the beautiful options flooding our Instagram feeds into closet staples, we find it helps to have a strategy in mind for narrowing down our options. To help us take a more focused approach to fall shopping, we asked The Scout Guide Co-Founders Susie Matheson and Christy Ford to share what they’re on the hunt for this season. Here, they discuss the inspiration behind their autumn must-haves the pieces they’re currently coveting.

Christy Ford Fall Fashion Fall Shopping M.O.: “I’m always trying to inject a few statement pieces into my everyday wardrobe. This year I’m looking for a new pair of fun sneakers or flats (an everyday item that can instantly jazz up an outfit!), sunglasses, a couple of good structured tops that can be thrown on with jeans for day or slacks for night, and a great bag. All items are outward-facing and will get a lot of miles on them!”
