So today I’m kicking off Fall/Winter wardrobe tracking update, as you are reading this for my AM peeps I will be headed to St Pete’s for the weekend, if you’ve been there and have any recommendations let me know on Instagram or via email. At first I was like oh I’m not going to shop much because there’s no Fall here so I’ll be wearing all my Summer stuff right? Wrong! While I do still wear a lot of my Summer pieces, I do make some changes to my wardrobe. Think deeper colors, different prints and textures. The weather is actually cooler, so it’s been fun to wear booties and jackets. I’ve also been in a major shopping mood, thankfully I’ve been doing a lot of returns. This month is the first time my returns outnumbered my purchases. Cleaning my closet this past year had really taught me what I love and what I’m most likely to keep for as long as I can. So overall I ended doing good and lot of money went back to my BA.
- NEW Jenny Bird Yaya Choker: Thanks to Jessica I find out about Jenny Bird and I have been obsessed with this simple choker.
- NEW Alexander Wang Mini Rockie: Thanks to some generous birthday gift cards and the awesome Shopbop sale I got this little bag and honestly I love it more than I thought I would. Review to come.
- NEW Express Lace Tee & Express Lace Tank: Last month I was at Express and tried on both of these, they were not on sale so I walked away. A couple weeks ago Express had a 40% off sale so I got both, to know me is to know my love for lace. I know I will wear these for a night out or to work with a blazer or jacket. An xs fits me in both, they run big.
- NEW Express Short Barcelona Cami: I have not been buying barcelona camis much but Express came out with a shorter option and I’ve been talking to all my barcelona cami wearing girls about how awesome it would be to have a shorter version.
- NEW Loft Double Wrap Belt: I love unique belts and noticed that one while checking the 50% off sale at Loft. The small fits me perfectly, I’m usually a 26 in jeans.
- NEW Lace Tee: I also noticed this pretty lace tee, lace tees are just so easy to style and I love the few that I have. Your outfit looks chic and feminine instantly.
- NEW Banana Republic Olive Green Trousers: I found my olive jeans but I was still looking for the perfect trousers, these fit well, true to size and the color is perfect.
- NEW Marc Fisher Nude Patent Pointed Toe Flats: Picked these up earlier this week for a steal at Macys thanks to coupons and plenti points.
I did quite a few returns this month, I got a few pieces that I’ve been wanting to try but ended up not working out.
- NEW AYR The Form Jeans: The jeans are simply amazing, but not for my body type unfortunately. The quality is top notch but they have zero stretch.
- NEW J.Crew Plaid Shirt: I loved this shirt online but in person I didn’t like the colors as much on me.
- NEW Equipment Leopard Dress: That dress is super cute but it’s very thin and wasn’t all that impressed with the quality.
- NEW Adidas NMD (sold out): I’ve been loving the look of the NMDs but I got my Golden Goose around the same time and I just didn’t love the NMDs as much.
- NEW Sam Edelman Francis Flats: These are super cute but it’s another one I didn’t like how they look on me so I had to send them back..
- NEW Express Berry & Pink Plaid Shirt: The colors are perfect for this shirt but the fabric wasn’t the regular fabric I’m used to from Express plaids.
- NEW Gap Tencel Utility Vest: I noticed this vest as soon as it came out but I wasn’t crazy about it in person. The vest itself is great I just didn’t think it was a piece needed in my closet.
- NEW Sézane Leopard Print Sneakers: They are well made and gorgeous, they were just too big for me. I didn’t repurchase only because I have two fairly new sneakers I love so I think I can live without them for now.
Plan for next month
I am waiting on this Ann Taylor skirt, I hope it’s a winner.
