fall forward | my autumn 2022 avara collection

Life + Style

September 14, 2022

It just keeps getting better… today we debut my FIFTH collection with my friends at Shop Avara and I am just so darn excited to share all of the fall goodness with y’all! I’ve shopped with this amazing boutique for more than two years now and I think you know my love affair of everything they do. I’m proud to collaborate with such an incredible team of dynamic, driven and empowering women that make up Shop Avara and now it’s time to show off what we’ve been working on for the past few months behind the scenes.

If you’ve shopped any of my collections with Avara previously, you know that quantities are limited and will absolutely sell out, as we have priced these pieces perfectly to make sure outfitted in style for fall, while doing it in a budget friendly fashion as well. We’ve included blouses + sweaters, staple denim and faux leather shorts, and of course shoes and accessories to tie your entire look together.

I feel like as soon as the mornings get crisp, the leaves fall off the trees and pumpkin spice season takes over, everyone assumes it’s time to wear all neutrals, all the time. Well, you know in my book color trumps basic anyday so within this all new debut you’ll find pretty patterns in fall-inspired hues, flowy silhouettes for us girly girls who want all the fall feminine they can find, and of course sprinkles of “extra” in many of the pieces so you’ll stand out all season long.

As always, make sure you’re shopping with my 15% off code NATASHA15 on the entire collection + everything else at Avara… ready, set, let’s shop!

The Petunia Blouse [Green + Burgundy] | [wearing size small, priced at $68] | Metallic lovers, this gorgeous pullover blouse is just what the doctor ordered for fall. It’s effortlessly chic and stylish, fits like a glove and we are debuting this style in two separate colorways, perfectly suited for all the events, occasions and everyday styling.

The Parker Sweater | [wearing size small/priced at $68] Polka dot perfection… you know I had to!!! Nothing says classically feminine quite like a beautifully tailored sweater for fall. Add a slight puff sleeve and all over fabric dots for good measure and you have the perfect look that’ll keep you warm and looking adorable.

The Amelia Jean | [wearing size 25/priced at $68] I LOVE a great pair of black denim, especially a pair that you can wear in a multitude of ways. These straight style jeans have just enough distressing and yet I LOVE how you can take them all the way to the office and beyond because of the sophisticated fit. They run TTS, have just a bit of stretch and take note of the flattering cut at the bottom hem = SO fab!

amelia jean | chelsea mules

The Chelsea Mule | [priced at $68] Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day?? Go ahead and break all the rules with these ivory and gold slip-on mules. A flat made for fall, they dress up any outfit of the day and are casually cool, while still chic and comfortable!

The Natasha Short | [wearing size small/priced at $58] | Everyone needs a great pair of faux leather bottoms and these cognac-colored paperbag style shorts are THE perfect bottom to wear with tall boots, short booties, or slip-ons throughout the season. A great way to dress up a casual blouse to make it date-night appropriate or add on a comfy sweater to style it down with sneakers.


petunia top | maxine jean | reversible belt | kress tote

The Maxine Jean | [wearing size 25/priced at $74] We’ve been on the hunt trying to find the PERFECT destructed denim in a lighter wash and we finally made it happen! Casually cute, while still structured as a true jean, this cropped wide leg style will beg to be worn over and over again. They run TTS, fit snugly throughout the waist and hip and then have a wider leg opening with destructed details. I absolutely love the high waist rise!


marisol top | natasha short

The Marisol Top | [wearing size XS/priced at $58] Green with envy… I told you I’d make sure your green goals were met this season. It’s the color of the year and this all over puff plaid pretty is easy on the eyes and the wallet. Sophisticated styling with endless options = a total winner in my fall wardrobe playbook!


mckenna dress | riley bag | wallis heels

The Mckenna Dress | [wearing size small/priced at $68] Who says you can’t wear bright colors in fall??? They must have never met me!

Add on a hat + denim jacket for one layered up look.


The Jensen Jeans | [wearing size 25/priced at $74] Classic denim with a slight flare leg opening at the bottom hem… these were made for showing off the sneakers, mules and clogs for fall and beyond. Just the right amount of stretch coupled with a light-medium rinse ensure these will become a fast fav in your closet!

The Elle Dress | [wearing XS/priced at $98] Special occasions are calling and so is the perfect little black dress. You may remember we debuted this in a red blouse last holiday and everyone went CRAZY, so we opted to incorporate this beauty into my fall collection so you’ll be properly outfitted for any and all events! The oh-so-flattering a-line silhouette features a tone on tone windowpane print, which is so on trend and completely gorgeous in person as well.

The Clara Headband [Brown + Black] | [priced at $18] Hair flair for days… fall is all about incorporating more accessories into the mix, especially to style with the basics.

The Claire Dress | [wearing size small/priced at $68] Ohhhh look at that… MORE green! I couldn’t help myself. This all over printed piece is one you’ll fall in love with every time you wear it. Simple details with atie neck detail and an a-line style ensures this one will be a repeat offender all season long.

The Anna Cardigan Sweater [White + Pink] | [wearing size XS/priced at $88] Everything is better when tied with a bow! Classically feminine and absolutely super soft, this whimsical cardigan sweater is what preppy dreams are made of. It features grosgrain ribbon ties on the front bodice and a woven cableknit fabrication with the perfect blouson sleeve. And yes, we brought it out in two colorways because it’s just THAT good.


The Alana Top [Red + Gold] | [wearing size small/priced at $68] Last year, I felt like I jumped completely from short sleeve summer to thick knit sweaters and I missed having a total blouse moment for fall, so we brought you this gorgeous abstract patchwork blouse in two STUNNING shades!

Perfect for keeping all the essentials safe and secure, too.

The Stephanie Boot | [priced at $118] These boots were made for walking… I know how challenging it can be to find the perfect tall boot for fall and winter and I was on a hunt for something special to bring to you this season. I am THRILLED with how incredible the quality of these boots are without breaking the budget… a staple block heel with a buttery taupe fabrication that truly goes with anything + everything.

The Shelly Hat | [priced at $48] Back in black… and yes everyone is going to want to wear this classically styled topper all the time!

The Riley Bag | [priced at $54] MINT to be… we wanted to incorporate a fun, fancy kind of bag into this season’s collection and I fell hard for this pistachio green crossbody bag with gold details galore.
