As we enter a new season, I try to be mindful of what I have when shopping to avoid over spending, because let’s be honest - I do not need another neutral colored sweater!!!
Around the end of August I start to think about what my wardrobe is missing, so I can pace myself when it comes to revamping. Some pieces that are always needed are new denim, sneakers and sweaters. These are all items I wear like crazy during Fall + Winter months so I never have a hard time justifying updating them. Because I wear them so much I look for quality pieces and I am proud to say I have bought every item so far on sale this year!
One thing about my style I have come to notice is that I reach for the same things over and over again. This year, I found that I was drawn to basics that can be mixed up and matched time and time again. I focused on neutral colors in classic, simple pieces that I can add my own flare to throughout the season. Shop my fall finds via the links below!
First Row (L to R)
J.Crew Donegal Wool Pullover Mockneck sweater: This was a LDW find (I know I said I don’t need anymore neutral sweaters but c’mon!) I got it in cream and it has a brown speckle to it that really looks great when paired next to dark denim. I sized up to layer - I’m thinking a chambray button-down to layer underneath when the weather gets chilly!
Madewell Whisper Cotton Crewneck Tee: (under $20) This tee! I love the burnt rusty “autumn” color so much, and with stripes, how could I resist?! These tees are my favorite - perfect for a comfy boyfriend look. I plan on wearing with my olive green field jacket. The color of this tee is one of my favorites for the season!
J.Crew Factory Ruffle-Sleeve Pullover Sweater: TBH the ruffles on this sold it for me. I don’t have a lot of light grey sweaters and this one was so fun with the ruffle sleeve. I’m excited to wear with black or dark denim and throw a bandana on to bring out the grey. When the weather gets chilly, I’m planning on throwing a quilted vest over it to keep warm while letting the sleeves still shine!
J.Crew Vintage Straight Leg jeans: If there is one thing my style needs it’s good denim. I snagged these over LDW when the store was 40% off (plus $30 off for turning in a pair of old denim to recycle!) I’ve gravitated towards straight leg denim lately, plus I love the raw hem and dark wash - they’ll go perfect with everything!
Second Row (L to R)
Universal Thread loafers: (under $30!) I am most excited about this find! I’ve been drawn to the jeans + loafers look but I didn’t want to drop big bucks on loafers since I’m not sure if I’ll wear them a lot (yet). These are UNDER $30 and a perfect Madewell dupe. They look so good with jeans, I can’t wait to start wearing them for a classic yet tailored boyfriend look.
Adidas Flashback sneaker: I am so glad sneakers are “in” because I’m all about comfy over here. These are perfect with jeans, or lazy days to throw on with leggings and Eagles gear. I love the off-white color because it will never match exactly!
J.Crew Factory Cotton-Wool sweater: This sweater is so cozy and a steal for the price point. I bought it in camel and I’m excited about this color being so versatile, it looks great with black jeans or dark denim. I know it’s going to be another fave!
Stay tuned for how I put these to work this season! ;)
