Fall Fashion Wishlist Under $80



There's something about the start of August that has me start thinking about fall, probably the fact that it means school is right around the corner. Although I'm officially out of school, I'm not sure if I'll ever get out of that mindset! It's also been uncharacteristically humid here in California and I catch myself constantly dreaming about the crisp days of fall. I was sitting in Starbucks while writing this post with the AC blasting and it was super cloudy outside, so it really got me in the mood for autumn. However it was a harsh reminder stepping outside into the 90 degree heat. Here's hoping for some cooler weather in the upcoming weeks! In the meantime these are some things that are on my mind for my fall closet. 

One | Nude Pearl Slides $25: I found these shoes the other day while shopping in Target and I kid you not I booked it over to the rack and grabbed my size. These look like exact copies of the Steve Madden version but are only about a third of the price. The nude version is sold out online except for size 11, and they weren't in my store either, so I picked up the black pair instead. Still super cute, however I will be stalking the website until the nude version comes back into stock!

Two | Pink Shirt Dress $25: If you can't tell, I'm a huge fan of this millennial/blush pink trend. I think the hype will carry over into the fall, however I think it has to be styled correctly. I love this shirt dress because it's essentially a clean slate that you can style multiple ways. Add a plaid scarf, tan booties, and a neutral makeup look and you have one of my favorite looks for fall. The best thing about this dress is that I can see it working for a number of seasons and continuing to be a staple in my wardrobe.

Three | Initial Pendant Necklace $45: Personalized necklaces are just so, for lack of a better word, personal! If you've seen any of my recent outfit posts then you know how much I adore my monogram necklace, but sometimes I'd like something a little daintier for everyday wear. I love that this one comes in silver, gold, and rose gold. 

Four | Duster Cardigan $52: I love the look of the duster cardigans, but I've never actually owned one. This one is a great neutral while still being slightly unique in color. This would be perfect for layering, especially as it starts to get closer to the winter months. Yes, I am planning that far ahead. 

Five | Taupe Lace Up Booties $34: I have so many booties in my closet that I am dying to break out for autumn. These are too cute to pass up, and due to the lighter color and lace up detail they would be great as a transition item. 

Six | Camel Mules $79.90: Loafers and mules are HUGE for Fall. I'm loving these neutral pointed toe ones from Kristen Cavallari's line. These would work perfectly for practically any outfit, including work wear! Sorority girls this means you can wear these to your business meetings. (Did anyone else have a difficult time finding shoes that fit their chapter's dress code that weren't heels or ballet flats?) There are so many cute mule options out there right now, but this option is just perfect for all occasions. 

Seven | Rolled Sleeve Military Jacket $79: Am I the only one who is of the opinion that you can never have enough military jackets? I bought one last fall, however I feel this style is totally different. I love the draped opening of this piece and the color is much lighter than the other cargo jackets that are out there. I think it's more feminine, especially with the little bow details underneath the front pockets. Excuse me while I add this to my shopping cart. The only downside is that it's the second most expensive thing on my wishlist...

Eight | Off Shoulder Sweater Dress $38: This dress comes in a variety of colors and I just love how comfy it looks. Comfort and style are always something that go hand in hand in my book, and this knit dress is exactly that. I believe this would be another great transition piece to wear with booties, but it could also work for cooler temps by pairing it with taller boots and a scarf. 

Nine | Floppy Wool Hat $39: Is it really fall if you aren't wearing a floppy hat? All jokes aside, I think a nice hat like this is a great accessory to add to your wardrobe. I love the tiny bow detail on this one and think the color can be paired with SO many other fall colors. It's another great neutral that I just had to include in my wishlist!

Ten | Brown Saddle Bag $32: Can you tell I'm a fan of neutrals yet? I love how this bag looks like a designer dupe, and yet it is equally simple. It's great when you can just pick up a bag and sling it on with any outfit, and this is definitely something you can do with this one. Normally I'm not a huge fan of chain handles, however for this price and versatility of this bag I can make an exception.

Eleven | Hooded Gray Sweatshirt $18: Cute loungewear is ALWAYS on my wishlist. Especially now that I have a male roommate, walking around the house in my old pajamas all the time (aka big t-shirts) is no longer acceptable. This hoodie looks incredibly comfortable and seems perfect for those fall days where you want to do nothing but sit on the couch and watch movies or read a good book. 

Twelve | Pink Flare Sleeved Sweater Top $38: Okay, so this color isn't what you typically think about for fall, however I don't think bright shades have to be limited to the spring and summer! I imagine wearing this in an otherwise all black outfit and letting the top be the star. I think the sleeves are so fun, and will add some flare (hah! Get it? Okay enough with the puns...) to an outfit. 

What's the most exciting thing about fall for you?
