- Browse Pinterest. I love scrolling through my style page to see what I like, find repetition, and visualize where I have gaps in my own wardrobe.
- Make a list. This season I was in need of some new sweaters, date night tops, fall shoes that weren’t heels or boots, new jeans and a handbag.
- Decide what styles would get the most wear in your wardrobe! For me this what sticking to basics. Finding a classic white blouse vs. a printed blouse. Opting for the grey sweater vs. the colorful option.
- Give yourself a budget. It is really important that the items I buy get a lot of wear in my wardrobe. I use to shop based on novelty (I’m always eyeing the pretty dresses!) but in reality, they sit in my closet most of the year. This year I gave myself a bigger budget to invest in items that can add depth to multiple outfits.
- Add as much items to your shopping cart as you can! Compare and remove to fit your budget. I am so guilty of accumulating a shopping cart filled with $5000 worth of items (a girl can dream!). Eventually I get over the items that caught my eye initially and focus on what I really need. Seeing everything in one place makes it easy to find what you really need.
One of the biggest voids in my closet is date night tops. I found this Topshop cold shoulder top at Nordstrom and loved the fluttery sleeve. I also bought this off the shoulder blush option which looks super cute with flare denim. If you’re on the hunt for a fun pair of jeans for fall, I have gotten so much wear out of these raw hem Frame jeans. They look great with booties and heels! I know the price tag is hefty so I found an almost identical pair for way less here. I would size down if you want a tighter fit! So many of you asked about these Marc Fisher open toe booties which are my NEW FAVORITE (they are seriously so comfortable). I also picked up these Sam Edelman booties. A little more fancy for fall compared to my go-to closed toe booties. Next on my list: a fall coat.
