I LOVE everything about this time of year – Fall in New England couldn’t be more perfect. The best part though? The clothes. While all of my sweaters & boots have officially made their way back into my closet for the season, we keep getting hit with 75 degree days here & there. Though I’m not complaining, it does make getting dressed a bit tricky.
While perusing Pinterest & styling some outfits, I came across this casual look from Eva Mendes that I am just dying to duplicate. It’s perfect for this transitional Fall weather – the layers & chunky wedges work so well together. I’ve done a little browsing & found some great pieces to help snag this style!
So I found this post from August in my drafts and realized that I never published it! Whoops!
Better late than never. Enjoy 🙂 —->
I’d say that this is the saddest, yet most exciting time of the year for most ladies. Summer is coming to an end (which is down right depressing), but Fall & it’s phenomenal fashion is just around the corner!
I took a mini shopping trip over the weekend to some of my favorite go-to bargain spots. I wasn’t in the mood to go spending money for the heck of it, so I told myself that I would only pick up things that I absolutely loved, that were suitable for work, and that would be good assets to my wardrobe!
I rarely go to the mall, but I had to make a trip to the Apple store. While I was there, I figured I would stop by Forever21 and H&M. I tried on a few things that I really liked, but didn’t meet my criteria for purchase – so I decided to sit on them and return another time if they stayed on my mind. Glad I did, because I kind of forgot about them already lol.
However, I did need a new tote for my laptop, and lucked out at H&M!
I’ve been on the hunt for fitted slacks – I always buy pairs that are too long & need to be hemmed (which I never do) so straight legged, ankle pants are my new go-to! I stopped by TJ’s to peruse their selection and found this great pair of navy blue Cynthia Rowley slacks. I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again – Cynthia Rowley designs are amazing! The quality, the fabrics, the fit! I swear. Everything I try on feels as though it was tailored just for me.
Next to TJ’s is one of my high school faves, Mandees! I’m starting to feel a little too old for this store, but the cute & affordable finds keep driving me in!
I’m really excited about my finds & the upcoming Fall season! I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes open & picking up some more pieces here & there!
I am completely guilty of having a pretty dull wardrobe- lots of grey and black! With this recent Spring/Summer weather we’ve been having I decided it was time to step it up! I told myself that from here on out, when shopping, I would ONLY buy colorful clothes. I put my maxxinista skills to work at Marshalls, TJ’s, some consignment spots, Forever 21, and H&M over the past few weeks.
Here are some of my recent, *colorful* purchases…
New shoes! 🙂
Lots of chunky new necklaces…
A new bag, belts and hair accessories…
I wore this new beautiful fuchsia dress with a beaded gold necklace to a recent work event.
I’ve even started to break out my spring polishes!
I’m currently wearing this pastel blue color, I’m loving it!
How does your wardrobe and shopping habits change when the weather warms up?
