Summer may have ended, but the fun is just beginning! We recently had the chance to sit down with a few of Indy’s most fashion-forward bloggers at our Fall FashIN Preview and quiz them about all things autumn-related, including their must-have pieces of the season. Read on for their fashion tips!

This week, we’re featuring the super-cool Monica of F&ML. (Check out her recap of the Fall FashIN Preview here!) Take a look at Monica’s musts for her closet this fall, including vintage pieces and edgy studs and spikes.
