Happy Monday readers! I am doing something a bit different for today’s post. One of the things I struggle with is bringing you outfit posts while the items in the post are brand new and in stock. To address this challenge, I came up with the idea of doing a “currently shopping” post. This post shows you my dressing room pics (by store) of the items I am currently buying/wanting. Enjoy them, and let me know in the comments what you think of this post and what look is your favourite!
Be sure to get to the end of this post for an exciting GIVEAWAY!
STORE ONE: EXPRESS
I am LOVING this outfit for fall. The cardigan was so comfortable and I NEED to buy these black ankle boots. Black ankle boots are a fall staple and these were both affordable, comfortable and had that “little extra” in terms of detailing that really make them pop.
This shirt is, in my mind, the PERFECT shirt. It’s great to wear to work, but it is just as great for after work drinks. I love that you can unzip the zipper (by any amount you want) and I love the black detailing against the cream. These pants are also GREAT- and you KNOW I am a huge “work pants snob”. Work pants are my jam. I love the ankle cut of these pants, and how perfect that is for fall boots.
This is such a cute t-shirt to round out your summer! The interesting pattern (and how it comes further up the back than the front) is such a stand out look. This works great for now with jean shorts or transitioning into fall with leggings, like I’ve done here.
STORE 2: KATE SPADE
I can’t find this dress in this gorgeous mint colour online, but it was in my local Kate Spade store. Such a well made dress!
I can’t even handle the happiness level that is associated with this many flamingos. I am in love with this dress.
STORE 3: FOREVER 21
I think this is going to be my fall uniform this year- loose dress, ankle boots, hat. I bought these boots immediately – they are the best flat ankle boots I’ve seen in stores yet!
I love the “faux layer” trend. It’s a great way to have that look without actually adding bulk. I LOVED the exposed plaid layer on this sweatshirt, I found the fit a bit too boxy though so I didn’t end up getting it. I’d say try this one on in store before buying to make sure you are okay with the fit!
STORE 4: J CREW
This gorgeous summer shirt is on sale right now! The detailing is so intricate and it pairs well with white denim for summer or jeans and a navy cardigan in the fall.
been looking for a camel blazer to add to my fall wardrobe. This one is
very structured and a heavy material. I think it would be great for
colder months. Also this tee is a great staple. It comes in a bunch of
colors, but this olive is definitely my pick for fall.
lucky winner will be selected to win a pair of glasses or sunglasses (any pair of their choosing!) from Polette Eyewear! You may remember my post obsessing over their “E-Polette” line here or my favourite sunglasses of theirs, shown in this post. I truly love both the quality and affordable prices of their products!
