6 Wardrobe Essentials I’m Loving this Fall

It finally feels like fall, which makes me so excited to start wearing sweaters, scarves, boots…and all the other autumn-y pieces in my wardrobe! It has seemed like such a long time coming, which I’ll admit is weird because summer is typically my favorite time of year, but this year the allure of the upcoming holidays, the pumpkin spice craze, a longing for that chill in the air, sitting by the fire, hot apple cider and getting cozy with a good book make me rethink my favorite season. This year Fall is it! And, in the spirit of autumn, and the glorious change of seasons, I’ve compiled some of my favorite fall fashion finds.

Fall Fashion Favorites

  1. Pearl Earrings: FREE from Helzberg Diamonds since my husband bought a watch there recently
  2. Hipster Glasses: only $12.95 from Zenni Optical – and you can use an expired prescription too (shhh…just fyi for my fellow thrifters out there!)
  3. Eternity Scarf: on sale for $15 from Shoebuy.com with a $10 off coupon from Shutterfly
  4. Boyfriend Jeans: $34 from H&M with BOGO deal and 10% off student discount – love how slouchy and comfy these are!
  5. Plum Pants: $10 on sale from Forever21 – found them on the super clearance rack. The zippers are my fav.
  6. Geneva Watch: $18 from JewelMint with a special promotion. The face is see-through, which is a unique feature.

Today’s TREASURES from the Sept. Goodwill 50% Off Day

Today my hubby and I ventured to my all-time favorite Goodwill store, the one on Keystone, across from Glendale. At first it seemed our luck wasn’t that great with a less than stellar home goods section, but in the clothes section I found some sweet steals. There were so many sweaters, and looking through them made me giddy with excitement in anticipation of autumn. Mmmm…hot apple cider, Halloween, changing leaves, orchards, haunted houses, pumpkin pie. This year, reflecting on it, my enthusiasm for fall is greater than normal. Perhaps it’s because this time of year has all the best holidays and leads up to my favorite holiday – Christmas. Either way, with my super successful day of shopping I now have some new additions to my fall wardrobe. Check them out!

Dresses:

1. Purple dress: Kensie brand, $3

2. Rose colored dress: Lush, $3, with the tags still on

Sweaters:

1. Plum knitted sweater: American Eagle, $2.15

2. Coral sweater: Target brand Massimo, $2.15

3. Red sweater dress: H&M, $2.15

4. Tan, patterned cropped sweater: Forever 21, $2.15 – so funky, love it!

You should consider going to your local Goodwill 50% off day sometime soon. For the Indianapolis stores it is every first Saturday of the month. Try and get there early or you may miss all the good finds, it is sooo worth it! Oh, and maybe shop around the Goodwill stores in your area to see which is the best – then spend your time there on 50% off day. Or, you can visit several, make a day of it!
