With such an amazing sale, I have specific items that I will be getting. A lot of the pieces a fashion forward for fall, so I will be looking for pieces that I can layer. Here are some of the items that I will be keeping my eye on:


I have this blazer in a light pink color. If you are getting any of these blazers in petite sizing, keep in mind that they run large. I purchased mine earlier in the year in XSP. If you want a pink blazer similar to the one that I am wearing in the images able, I have also linked a similar one below.

Sweaters & Cardigans 

Before we know it, it will be time to start adding layers to our wardrobe. Your go-to pieces are going to be sweaters and cardigans.

Moto Jackets

I love adding a little bit of edge in the fall. You can do this effortlessly with a cool suede or faux leather jacket.


Can a lady have too many dresses? No, the answer is no! 😉

Handbags & Purses

Shoes & Boots
