This fall, I’m trying out something new.
Each season, I tend to randomly and sloooowly shop around & then right when a trend I LOVE is about to go out, that’s when I get around to finally buying it.
So this fall, I was inspired by InStyle & Lucky magazine (which I’m LOVING lately, btw) to plan out a fall budget & shopping plan and stick to it.
So, without further ado, here it is:
#1. A mustard-colored clutch
I think this will pair brilliantly with other fall colors I want to wear out. Though, with a tiny baby at home, I don’t actually know how often I’ll be getting ‘out.’ Hmmmm… Oh well. Maybe this will help inspire me!
I’ve been obsessed with this trend all year and yet have still somehow failed to acquire a pair. That makes me sad. But oxfords make me happy, so suddenly I feel better.
#3. Scarves: one polkadot, one Navajo, one that I just fall in love with
I love scarves so much—I’m not sure if that makes me old or if it makes me French.
#4. Heeled boots that are comfortable enough to run errands in
Enough said. Everyone should own a pair of these sort of boots for fall.
#5. very thin vintage plaid button-ups
The challenge here is to refrain from looking like you just exited a hoe-down.
#6. Black pumps
Just because I should have these in my closet, and I don’t. I was holding out for a pair of Louboutins. Silly.
Aldo makes great knock-offs.
#7. Gold bangles
These are something else that should be in my closet but are not.
Shorts are something I have never felt very good about, but Briana Lane is changing my mind. She raided my closet and showed me how to pair them with tights and boots, and it’s a pretty damn cute look, so I am venturing into new territory here.
I love these so much, and I love them even more now that I’m nursing. Plus, I think Henley would be a really cute name for a girl. You’re welcome. Yes, if you’re pregnant you can steal that one.
#10. some good cool-weather dresses for layering
I’ll post my finds here for October, November & December!
