Recent Fall Purchases

September is usually the month I do the most shopping for my wardrobe. The reason is two-fold: 1. It's time to re-fresh my cold weather wear, and 2. It's my birthday month so I allow myself to splurge a little more than normal. I actually haven't done much shopping this season as I've been focusing more on getting rid of things than on adding things. While I haven't bought much, I am pretty in love with the five things I have added to my closet for fall:





1. Aritzia Sweater
This was my birthday present that I picked out for myself. I've loved the aesthetic of Aritzia since way back when Jillian Harris was The Bachelorette (remember that?) and she mentioned shopping there. I believe at the time it was only a Canadian retailer. They have since opened a few stores in the U.S., and lucky for me there are two within a few hours from where I live. So for my birthday I asked to go there with the intention of buying a sweater or one of their gorgeous scarves. Unfortunately the scarves were too itchy for me. I'm allergic to wool, and even though they say they are "soft brushed wool" I still can't handle them. My eyes and skin start to immediately itch when I put one on. Such a bummer. Turns out most of their scrumptious sweaters also had wool. I was majorly disappointed, but since I had gone all that way I was determined to find something. Enter the Wilfred Diderot sweater, made of a soft cotton modal blend.  This is the coziest cocoon sweater, and I love the pyramid stud detailing along the back.

2. Everlane Tees
I loooooove Everlane tees, they are the best quality for the price, it's just downright ridiculous. $15 for the softest cotton tee cut to perfection? It's a no-brainer wardobe staple. I purchased a new black v neck and a new white u neck for the season. I love to layer these under open front cardigans and plaid tops. I'm tempted to buy all the colors in all the cuts, but for now I went for basic black and white. Some of the cuts are more expensive than others, but they are all a fabulous deal.

3. Adrienne Vittadini Booties
I was on the hunt for a pair of booties for fall, with my requirements being: hit at the ankle, straddling the line between casual and dressy, and have the perfectly rounded pointed toe (now I'm just being difficult). Well, I found them! I used birthday money to buy these...thanks Mom! ;)

4. Target High Waisted Skinnies
I've blogged about these before here and here, so I won't go into them much again other than I wear these constantly and love them! I wish they had them in a solid dark denim, which is the only other pair I am looking to update in my closet this season.

5. Gray Cashmere Scarf
This is an item I put on my wish list after seeing how many inspiration looks I pinned that had oversize gray scarves involved. I decided to try and find a deal on a cashmere version on Poshmark, and I did! I found a cashmere scarf from Nordstrom, sized 88" long and 44" wide, originally $100, and I bought it for $34. Pretty sweet deal. I definitely have some tips on how to successfully shop on Poshmark, so I think I will work on a post on that for the future. (Note: the photo used above is not the actual scarf, just similar in look. The scarf shown above can be found here.)
