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!

The perfect $40 jacket for fall days + nights out

IMG_9571IMG_9573IMG_9574IMG_9572IMG_9579IMG_9576IMG_9575IMG_9580IMG_9578Jacket / Jeans (On sale!!) / Cami / Heels (Similar) / Necklace

I am LOVING Target’s new fall selection (but really when am I not loving anything from Target)…They really are killing it right now. They are coming out with more and more designer dupes that are so affordable.

I love this jacket because it works during the day and you can also wear it out at night. It’s super easy to dress up or down, and it looks designer but its only $40! It comes in a few other colors too 🙂 Also, my jeans are currently on sale for $21.99 and originally are $88! They are by far the comfiest jeans I own.

Labor Day sales you don’t want to miss

labordaysales-2.jpg

There are SO many great sales going on right now, some are ending today but some are extended until after labor day! So I figured I’d show you a couple of my favorite items from each sale 🙂

Steve Madden Platform Sandal – $65

Nurse Jamie Facial Trio – I have been eyeing the Nurse Jamie uplift for quite some time now (all because of Tati) and this is a trio set for $46 – the uplift is original $69! 

Quay Australia Aviators – Marked down to $29!!

express

Express is the perfect place to buy your “going out” closet staples. The entire site is currently 40% off and womens jeans are 50% off! 

One Shoulder Tie Tank – Only $15!!

Sequin Mini Skirt – $41. I wore this last weekend to celebrate my 22nd birthday and I loved it. Just the right amount of extra 😉 

Strapless Sweetheart Romper – $41. I love this because it’s simple – but you can do a lot with it! PicMonkey Image-6

It was not until recently that I started shopping at Abercrombie again, they have so many cute fall items right now and their sales are great! 

Snap-Up Fleece – I am obsessed. Comes in many different colors! 

Cozy Swing Dress – This also comes in different colors and I think it’s perfect for fall! 

Lace Trim Cami – These are SUPER in right now. The reason I like mine so much is because you can wear it under a lot of different cardigans and blazers, or by itself!

Goodnight Macaroon is the perfect place to get sweaters and cardigans. They have so many unique styles that you might not see a lot of other places. It has been one of my favorites for a while now.

A day in Chicago + my new favorite closet staple

Dress / Wedges / Necklace

Yesterday I spent the day in Chicago at the Merchandise Mart with a co-worker returning some fabric samples and picking up some tile samples. This was surprisingly only my third or fourth time in the Mart and I forgot how stunning the showrooms are. I could spend all day there! After the Mart, we went to The Hampton Social and it was my first time there – seriously so cute! I have seen a ton of photos taken there so of course, we had to go!

I mainly wanted to do this blog post because I finally got my hands on this dress that I have been eyeing FOREVER! It is so flattering and I have seen it on so many people styled so many different ways. It is a little on the pricier side but I am so glad I finally got it. It is so comfortable and so easy to dress up or down! I love that you can wear it now but you are also able to style it in the Winter, Spring, and Fall! It is the perfect little black dress, and I will definitely be getting it in other colors!

This is the same BP. Lace Trimmed Cami – I love that you can style it so many ways all year long! Hopefully, it will be restocked 🙂

This was my first time ever shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and wow it was totally worth it! In my opinion, shopping this sale will save me soo much money in the end because throughout the rest of the year I would’ve shopped more if I hadn’t picked these things up for such great deals! Two things that are not pictured that I also got from the sale are these Zella Live in High Waist Leggings which are the BEST! I did not expect to love them as much as my Lulu Lemon leggings but I do! I also got this basic tee in black that is marked down to only $11 (will hopefully be restocked in more sizes and colors?!) I obviously didn’t go too crazy because being on a college budget doesn’t stop when you graduate! 😉
