So today I’m kicking off Fall/Winter, September marks the start of a new season and it’s also my birthday month, with that there’s new arrivals, labor day sales, mixed with birthday shopping. I always end up with a little bit more stuff in September, but I think I didn’t go too crazy and I honestly love all the pieces that I decided to keep. I’ve been wearing most already or plan on for the near future. So let’s go over them.
- Nordstrom Swing Dress: I’ve seen the brand Socialite at Nordstrom for a while but finally pulled the trigger on this cute swing dress, if you follow my snapchat or ig story you may have seen it on me. It is soooo comfy and will hide the food belly. I know this is not my last piece from them
- J.Crew Factory Camel Skirt: I got my J.Crew rewards for Fall but decided to get a few piece for work while J.Crew Factory had a sale. This is my 3rd color in that skirt.
- J.Crew Factory Red Scallop Skirt: Also picked up this cute one I’ve been eyeing for a while.
- Express Faux Suede Moto Vest: Ok I’m ceazy about my tan suede moto jacket, but I know I won’t get to wear it anytime soon. So I decided a vest was the perfect transitional piece for now and later.
- Kendra Scott Rose Gold Ring Pack: I’ve been wanting new rose gold pieces for a while so during the Memorial sales I got a few and they are all gorgeous. Also picked up the Kendra Scott Rose Gold Drusy Earrings, Kendra Scott Rose Gold Addie Earrings and Kendra Scott Rose Gold Bangle Set. I feel like a lot of people still don’t know that during your birthday month, you can get one Kendra Scott piece at 50% off. Just visit your local store.
- ASOS Velvet Skater Skirt: This piece is totally out of my comfort zone, but I’ve always loved velvet but the selections where always so limited. I think J.Crew came out with a velvet blazer a few years ago but I didn’t like the price and I really didn’t want a blazer. This skirt is so cute and this tan color is everything, after I received it I ended getting this ASOS Wrap Velvet Tank and ASOS Velvet Cami.
- Zara Faux Leather Skirt: I just needed another faux leather mini, my old one is a little roomy and I love that this one is high waisted.
- Zara Gold Metallic Skirt: I seriously only got this because of the Holidays, I’m sure it will be sold out soon so I cannot wait to rock it later this year.
- American Rag Utility Vest: This is Caryl’s fault, but I love my vest and this one really was a no brainer. This color is so perfect for Fall and the vest is so appropriate for South Florida’s weather.
This Anthropologie tunic, this top is adorable but once I tried it the shape wasn’t the most flattering on me. I would only love it with skinny jeans and heels and it’s just not versatile enough for me at this price.
If you are new here, in this section I like to be transparent about all items that were gifted. This month I got some goodies from Kendra Scott. I’m also partnering with Amazon and was gifted a gift-card that I used to get my Sam Edelman booties. Zaful also sent me some really cute pieces I cannot wait to style. See them all below.
- Still in rose gold mode, I got the Kendra Scott Kathryn Earrings, Kendra Scott Samantha Necklace and Kendra Scott Kimmy Necklace. I’ve been wearing them all and I’m obsessed with this rose gold/agate combo.
- Sam Edelman booties: Guys you know they were already on my Fall wishlist, these booties are perfect. I’m going to start wearing them with mini skirts and shorts.
- Zaful Printed Tassel Dress
- Zaful Peplum Crochet Cami
- Zaful Off the Shoulder Floral Dress
Plan for next month
The plan is to take it easy, I saved a big birthday gift-card just in case something really special comes along.
