Fall is without a doubt my favorite season. The weather, the fashion, the football, the snacks that come with watching football, etc. For some odd reason, whenever I think about Fall fashion, I think about what I would want to wear as I scarf down a dozen doughnuts at the Cider Mill (I need therapy). My excitement for the season is building, so I’ve already picked out some pieces I feel I need to complete the vision of drowning myself in fresh cider:
1) Rebecca Minkoff ” Mini 5- Zip” Convertible Crossbody Bag: $129 ( special Nordstrom Anniversary sale price!)
Optimal for free hands to carry more doughnuts. Plus this beautiful grey sleet color will go with everything.
I’ve been looking for a brown ankle bootie that doesn’t cut me off at a place that makes me look like i have cankles, this may be them.
3) Laundry by Shelli Segal Tweed Single Breasted Reefer Coat: $100 (Another Nordstrom Anniversary sale item!)
I love experimenting with menswear in the fall, this coat is the perfect piece to play around with.
Love this heather color, would be great unzipped with a silk tee underneath and boyfriend jeans.
A little expensive for a belt (hello student discount!), but I think I would get a lot of mileage out of this one!
The perfect leather dress to transition from Fall to Winter (A single tear streamed down my face as I typed that word).
Total amount (with student discounts, sale prices that may not be listed): around $500. I’ve recently purged my closet (quality over quantity people!), and I gave myself a budget of $450 for new Fall staples. A litttlleee over budget, so I sold a Kate Spade handbag on ebay that I love, but rarely ever use for the extra dough.
Great rule of thumb to follow: when you gain a piece, give away or sell a piece. Keeps you from hoarding and cluttering your space with things you don’t wear! Except for my haven’t worn since ’99 “Limited Too” *Nsync Shirt. That beauty is here to stay.
