Current Fall Wishlist

Fall Wishlist

Happy Saturday! It’s getting colder here in Illinois, and even though I’m definitely not ready for cold weather – I definitely am ready to dig into my fall wardrobe. I’ve rounded up a few items that I’ve had my eye on for a little while – these items are definitely more of a splurge, that’s why I called it a “wish list.”

divider11

  1. Goodnight Macaroon Over The Knee Boots – I’ve had my eye on these for so so long, but I just haven’t wanted to spend the money on them (even though everyone seems to love them!)
  2. Rachel Parcell Ruffle Neck Lace Top – I am obsessed with Rachel Parcell’s entire fall collection – I easily could have put all of the items on this wish list, but I decided to just pull my two favorites. I love lace and I am obsessed with the neckline detail of this top.
  3. Tory Burch Stud Earrings – I got a pair of Tory Burch studs for my birthday YEARS ago, and they just now are starting to fall apart, I wore them almost everyday. These ones are very similar and they go with almost everything and are super simple.
  4. Le Specs Air Heart Sunglasses – I saw these on Rachel Parcell and have been obsessed ever since!
  5. BB Dakota Sweater Dress – I love a good sweater dress..this one would be super cute with black OTK boots.
  6. Goodnight Macaroon Tweed Mini Skirt – This skirt is giving me all of the Blair Waldorf vibes..and I am such a sucker for tweed.
  7. Rachel Parcell Leopard Print Puffer – I’ve had my eye on this since her fall collection launched, and I’m also obsessed with the leopard print trend still happening.

My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Purchases

Blank Facebook Page CoverNSale Purchases

The anniversary sale is officially open to the public! I definitely went a little too crazy this year – I am not allowed to shop for a WHILE after this spree that’s for sure. But I really do love everything I got and I know that they will last me a long time because they’re great quality! I know some of these things are out of stock – and I’m not sure if they will be doing restocks or not! 

Leith Cardigan – I recommend sizing down in these especially because they are so long – I got an extra small. I really love Leith’s cardigans, they are great quality, don’t pill and super soft!

Crewneck Sweater

Leopard Print Cardigan  – I saw this on just about every blogger and I am so happy I got my hands on one! It is so soft.

Caslon Textured Button Up Top

Topshop Skirt – I really love this skirt for fall!

Leopard Print Cami – BP’s camis are my favorite! – Unfortunately sold out – these go fast!

BP V-Neck Tee – A must have basic!

Caslon Knit Blazer

Converse Lift Sneakers – Currently sold out but maybe they’ll restock?!

Cinch Font Mini Dress – Obsessed with this. Definitely one of my favorite purchases.

BP Joggers – To be honest, I’m iffy on these and may return them – I definitely think they may run a little big, but I don’t love the fabric or how they fit on me.

Good American Skinny Jeans – These were definitely a splurge, and I never splurge on jeans, but DANG these are good! They fit so nicely throughout the entire day but also feel stretchy at the same time. They’re also really flattering.

Leith Bodycon Dress – Another must have basic in my opinon. I have this dress in other colors and it is just so flattering – it is so easily dressed up or down too!

Fourth of July: Outfit Ideas under $30

Blank 10 x 8 in

1 – Striped Off The Shoulder Two Piece Set (Under $20 and has good reviews!)

2 – Blue & White Striped Romper (Amazon find!)

3 – Red Tassle Earrings

4 – Crop Top & Paperbag Tie Waist Shorts

5 – Red & White Sandals

6 – Red & White Tie Waist Dress (I have this in yellow and I really love it! It’s really flattering and also good quality for its price!)

Fourth of July is definitely one of my favorite holidays – I love spending the day on the lake with my family in Maine. I always love to dress up for the fourth, but I also don’t want to spend too much on something I may only wear for that day – so I wanted to put a post together of things that were not only affordable, but also are pieces that you can definitely wear on any other day!

Bodycon Tank Dress (20% off right now!) – Cheaper option here 

 White Denim Jacket – Cheaper option here and here

Leopard Platform Sneakers – Cheaper option here 

Name Necklace 

David Yurman Bracelet / David Yurman Dupe Chain Bracelet 

I really was not a fan of wearing sneakers with dresses, up until now! This outfit was so comfy and easy, but still cute. One of my current obsessions right now is leopard print.. I definitely stepped outside of my comfort zone getting these sneakers – they were a little much at first but I really love them! This dress is also something I’ve been living in lately – the weather has been so weird, (not warm enough to completely pull out my summer wardrobe) so I’ve just been paring it with different jackets. I linked a very similar dress I found on amazon that has great reviews that is almost half the price!

Spring Style: Save vs. Splurge

Spring on a Budget-2.png

Save:

Faux Tortoiseshell Hoops / Crossbody Bag / Red Dress Boutique Denim Jacket / Amazon Dress / Target Wedges

Splurge: 

Tortiseshell Hoops / Leith DressChloe Crossbody / Vince Denim Jacket / Treasure & Bond Wedges

There are so many great dupes to so many designer items these days, it makes it really easy to keep up with the trends without breaking the bank – and I am all about a good bargain. A lot of people have raved about this amazon dress (it is a best seller) – and it is so similar to the Leith one I own.
