Madewell Letterman Sweater-Jacket, $158 at Madewell

There's something about fall - it always feels like the perfect time to add to my wardrobe. It's a sartorial reflex caused by years and years of back to school shopping (blank notebooks and unsharpened No. 2 pencils were just as exciting to me as the outfit I picked out for the first day of class), so you can imagine how happy I was to spend all day yesterday catching up and shopping with my friend Alison, the super fab chick behind Viva la Diva Events. Five stores and one Strawberry Basil Limonata (yum!) later, my closet has some lovely new additions. My absolute favorite acquisition, and the piece I know I will wear constantly this fall, is Madewell's Letterman Sweater-Jacket. It's just begging to be worn to a football game on a crisp autumn day, embellished with button pins and a varsity letter. See, I told you I was nostalgic about back to school shopping...
