Wooo – a surprise 3-day sale at Shopbop in which we can score 20% off several of my top picks for the fall season, including —
1 // The SLVRLAKE jeans I haven’t stopped gabbing about (I would advise going up a size for a looser fit — plus, no one wants tight white jeans).
2 // *The* ALC Grace bag! A bunch of you own and rave about this bag. Several have specifically said it should be much more expensive than it is — that it rivals Celine quality handbags they also own! And now, 20% off.
3 // A fun little hat to throw on with your fall wardrobe. The whimsical slogan and marigold color add an element of funk to any outfit. I own this and love pairing it (unexpectedly) with a crisp button-down and ladylike flats.
4 // One of my girlfriends loved these pants so much she ordered them in three colors. These are a great utility style pant for everyday that you can dress up with a blazer or dress down with a striped tee. I own a few pairs of pants in this army/fatigue green and find it is surprisingly easy to pair with nearly any color in the wardrobe. Acts like a neutral!
5 // I spotted a mom at my daughter’s soccer game last weekend wearing these sunglasses (with code, under $50). Instantly copy-catted.
6 // This coat is such a great buy IMO. I have a similar style from Talbots from years ago that I still reach for constantly — the hood is a game changer! I didn’t realize how essential that is in rainy/chilly weather. Plus, the length is long enough for throwing on over leggings and having rear coverage, and I feel like the style dresses up enough to be worn over a fall dress.
7 // Olive green cords are having a moment. I like the idea of styling them down a bit, e.g., with sneakers and a slouchy knit or a simple white tee and a great suede bucket handbag.
8 // An ivory knit is an incredible tool in your wardrobe. Goes with everything. A wool skirt, leather pants, jeans (of course), leggings!
9 // A gorgeous fall patterned dress for the cocktail party circuit. This one turned my head because it would work just as well for a family portrait as it would for a school meeting, a brunch, or even Thanksgiving!
10 // A fall statement top. This is my “lazy” formula for wanting to look like I spent time coordinating my outfit when I have zero energy. Pair a bold top like this with your favorite jeans and an unexpected pair of shoes.
