There's usually a little bit of a frenzy when approaching a change in season. It could be due to the current fashion trends or realizing the clothes you've kept in your wardrobe from last Fall is not too wearable any longer. Either way, there's always this trend every season to do a little shopping and mix/match with your current clothes in your wardrobe. Today, I am sharing a few finds that are reasonably priced from a store I have never shopped at before; still in love with the top! Call it an accidental find, thanks to my little girl who actually pulled me into this store on one of our trips to get her fluffy scented unicorn squizamals at Claire's. Please don't even get me started on the squizamals and squishy trend toys among little girls! I will have to save that for another post.
Anyway, about this outfit which she picked for me and henceforth (don't I sound so proper?), I have decided to take her along on all my shopping sprees!!!
Outfits Under $50
This outfit is such a great transitional wear into Fall! It is not too heavy and not too light either. This top and scarf are both under $10 from Forever21 and H&M, respectfully. My pants come in three colors and on sale at Free People. I just love the beautiful contrast of colors. Maybe it's something about color harmony between primary and secondary colors that make this look fun and yet "Fall-ish".
My lettuce edge mock neck top isn't really a turtleneck so is not too heavy and can be worn in temperatures in the 60s degree Fahrenheit (F) or higher...just not in 80F degree weather! Now that will be a bit too hot. I love the scallops on the edges since it adds a feminine touch to the look. The belted wide-leg pants are super comfortable. I can't gush enough how surprised I was when I put them on! I also really like the belted option because you can adjust how tight or loose you want the belt around your waist, giving you control. You can find these pants at any of these stores; FreePeople, Nordstrom Rack or Macys. I have also included in the "Shop My Favorites" link below, a less expensive option from Forever21 which is very similar to these pants and under $30! For the scarf, I opted for a light choice but I have a feeling this may change into more heavier layers later in the month once we start experiencing much cooler temperatures. I paired this look with one of my favorite Sam Edelman shoes from Nordstrom and Michael Kors cross body bag in nude.
Now isn't this just the cutest outfit (minus my slightly out of control crazy hair)? I think I may have found a personal fashion stylist in my daughter. Have you guys shopped at Forever21? What do you guys think? Let me know in comments below.
