I’m sure by now you’re aware that pumpkin spice everything has officially taken over. I’m guilty of already having quite a fair amount of pumpkin coffee and I’m not mad about it in the slightest. I am SO excited for fall because not only is the fashion amazing and the food to die for, but I love the cozy feeling, chilly weather, and fun activities ๐Ÿ™‚ There are sooo many fun things I have planned to do this upcoming fall season, but there are also a few fashion items I have my eye on that I’m dying to get! Here are some of my fall wardrobe wishlist items!

I wasn’t sure about this trend at first, but now I am completely in love and I want to own every single pair. I think mules/loafers are a perfect fall shoe, especially transitioning into the fall from summer!! They are so easy to pair with any outfit to make it look chic and trendy! All of the shoes featured in the image are from Vici!

This is a no brainer. I think that every gal and guy has an abundance of sweaters in their closet waiting to get broken out once the chilly weather arrives in full. Even though I have plenty of sweaters, I always want more. There are always new styles, colors, fits, and designs that I want to try! Right now I’m loving the look of oversized slouchy sweaters that are the epitome of coziness. I cannot wait to wrap myself in a big, chunky sweater and buy as many as I can afford lolol ๐Ÿ™‚ All the sweaters featured are from Love Street Apparel (one of my all time fave online stores!! It can be a little bit pricy, but buying pieces here and there doesn’t hurtย ๐Ÿ˜‰).

I think it’s safe to say that Mom Jeans are my new favorite style of jeans. They are relaxed, comfortable, and super trendy. They make an outfit look effortless yet put together. My favorite place to get some good mom jeans is Asos, but American Eagle, Forever 21, and other great brands sell awesome mom jeans as well! I love that this style of denim goes with sneakers, heels, flats and every shoe in between. They are a staple for fall, and I’m yearning to own more pairs!!

Being a “poser” is something I never want to be presumed as. But when it comes to band tees, that’s a different story. I think an oversized band tee is such an effortless, chic way to make an outfit look trendy and fun. So screw the people that criticize you for wearing the tee of a band you don’t listen to, because if it’s cute and sold at a store you love then you deserve to wear the heck out of it. All of these tees featured are from Forever 21!

Red. Like the infamous T-Swift album, red is the color of Fall 2017. I’m going to be honest and say I’ve probably only owned three red articles of clothing my entire life, but I am excited to incorporate it into my wardrobe this upcoming season. It is definitely out of my comfort zone, but fashion is all about exploring and testing out new things!! Here are some adorable red pieces I found at Asos!!

There ya have it! These are just a few things I’m looking forward to trying out this fall! What are some things on your wardrobe wishlist?? Let me know in the comments, I would love to know and maybe add them to mine ๐Ÿ™‚

If there is one thing I am extraordinary great at; it’s shopping. I take pride in my skills of saving money, waiting for sales, and outsmarting stores by waiting for that dress I’m dying to have to get its price lowered a little. Even though I like to think of myself as an avid shopper and Queen of Steals I definitely fall into the trap of aesthetically pleasing things that I just don’t need, will never actually wear, or will promise myself I’ll use and never do. Here are the tricks I have learned throughout the years, and some tips on how to save money while shopping!

  1. Can You Dupe It? 99% of the time affordable stores like Forever 21, Windsor, Zaful, MakeMeChic, etc. feature styles that are essentially copycat of more expensive brands. If the item you’re dying to have is way out of your price range, check affordable places for similar styles, and chances are, they’ll have them! Sometimes quality is compromised when you go for cheaper alternatives, but if it’s a trendy item you probably won’t wear more then a few times then no harm, no foul ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here is one of my personal favorite dupes!

ย  ย  ย 2. ย The Outfit Test.ย This tactic has actually saved me from spending my money on A LOT of things. When I’m doing my usual daily online browsing and see something I love, I think to myself…is this something I can only wear in a certain season? Am I still going to like next year? Will I really wear it more than 5 times? If the answer is no, then I don’t buy it. If the answer is yes then I try to envision the outfit varieties I can make with the piece and really think if it’s worth it.

ย 3. Check Nordstrom Rack.ย Nordstrom Rack is basically the best store that was ever created. I can spend HOURS in there browsing all the amazing deals they have! Whenever I want something from a brand I generally can’t afford i.e. Free People, PAIGE, Wildfox, Jeffrey Campbell, etc. I always check Nordstrom Rack to see if it’s available there for a much better price! Sometimes the exact item I’m looking for isn’t available, but I always find something I like ๐Ÿ™‚ Here are some of my faves from Nordstrom Rack!

ย  ย  ย  4. Go to Sale Section First!ย I’ve mentioned this in a post before, but 99% of the time the sale section is where it’s at. It’s very hard to bypass all the beautiful newness a store has to offer, but if you are online shopping it’s much easier, trust me. The first thing I do when I online shop is I go right to the sale section, especially for stores that are more pricy. Don’t think that because it’s the sale section the items won’t be cute. Chances are they’re there in the first place because the store had the items WAY overpriced, and no one in their right mind would spend that. But you were the smartypants who waited for the item to go on sale and saved a buttload of money! Go you ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here are some of my favorite places with KILLER sale sections and pricy non-sale items lolol.

ย  ย  ย  ย 5. Plan What You Need.ย If there is anyone on this planet who is guilty of impulse buys it’s this girl. Even though I am on a budget and don’t have $75 to spend on shoes…I do sometimes. But hey, we have all been there at one point or another and I’m definitely working on my problem. To avoid this happening to you though, make sure before you go shopping you know what you need and you only have eyes for that. So when you see those beautiful $200+ purses in the window, know that you DO NOT NEED IT. Unless you like really do and that’s what you went to the mall for in the first place, but you get my point. Try your hardest to only get what you went for and nothing else. It might even help if you only bring a certain amount of cash with you and no credit or debit cards, so once you’re out of money you’re out.

I hope at least one person found these tips helpful, and I could save you some time and money! Let me know if you want more posts with advice like this! I would love to do them ๐Ÿ™‚

I have mentioned this many times before, but outfits that are stylish AND comfy are my life. Recently I got this adorable t-shirt from Amuse Society and I’m so in love with it. It’s super comfy, and it has a cheeky little saying which makes it extra fun ๐Ÿ˜‰ I honestly feel the most like myself when I’m wearing an outfit that’s fun and comfortable. Graphic tees have been my jam for years and I will always love them even if they go out of style one day (which I hope never happens!). Amuse Society is a little bit pricier than I normally spend on graphic tees, but I get sooo much use out of it and wear it so much! It’s so soft, I could wear it all day every day if that was acceptable. I have paired this tee so many different ways. I almost always tie it up in a cute knot and then pair it with denim shorts, a skirt, jeans, overalls, the list goes on! Here I paired it with some of the softest denim shorts in the world from American Eagle. I know American Eagle can be expensive sometimes, but right now they’re having an AMAZING sale going on!! You know your girl is all about those sales ๐Ÿ˜‰ I finished off this look with picture-perfect wedges from Luca + Grae! I personally think these were a great price for how beautifully well-made they are, and how comfy! Honestly, I have yet to come across a pair of wedges or heels that don’t kill my feet so I think it’s okay to spend a little more on shoes for that reason. I hope this outfit inspires you and gets you ready for summer which is coming sooo quickly! I have a lot of fun posts coming so make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss and deals or cute outfits ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s Memorial Day which means summer is right around the corner!! Summer is my favorite season for a lot ย of reasons, and one of them is the fact that I have an obsession with buying bathing suits. It’s not really a “problem” per say, because over the years I have acquired a pretty extensive collection. Through my bikini shopping, I’ve found some that I die over and immediately buy, and then there are some that are adorable but SO FREAKING EXPENSIVE. I can understand why purses, shoes, jackets, and even sunglasses can be pricy…but something that you only wear for a few months out of the year that doesn’t contain much material I can’t wrap my mind around spending a lot on. So last summer when I saw this bathing suit online on Urban Outfitter’s website I fell in love with it, but then noticed the price. I just couldn’t let myself spend $72 on a bathing suit, especially one that I couldn’t try on beforehand and made sure I loved! So I sadly removed it from my cart, but constantly looked for a dupe everywhere. And then I found one. I found a dupe for this bathing suit I adore and it’s half the price!! It’s so cute and whether or not American Eagle meant to recreate this bathing suit they did an awesome job. I haven’t boughten it yet, but I plan on doing so and when I do you can bet I’ll post all about it ๐Ÿ™‚

I told you I wasn’t kidding when I said I found a cheaper alternative ๐Ÿ˜‰ These bathing suits are so similar only one costs $72 and the other is $35!! I’m so excited to get this suit and do a review on it as well as some style tips! I hope this post gave you some inspiration and you’re as excited about this style steal as I am ๐Ÿ™‚ The Aerie suit comes in four different colors as well! I have a lot of fun summer posts planned so make sure you’re subscribed so you don’t miss any of the excitement (or random style steals ;))
