Labor Day Weekend/ Fall Shopping


Unless you're stocking up on summer clearance stuff for a late vacation, to me, Labor Day weekend shopping is synonymous with preparing my closet for fall. I thought I'd give you some inspiration for some fall basics as you head out to fill your shopping bags this weekend. These are some of the sales I will be enjoying:

Stella and Dot: Additional 25% off sale items
Anthropologie: Additional 20% off sale items
JCrew Factory: 40-60% all (most) items
LOFT: 50% off select items

Hey, why isn't Express listed in there? Oh, maybe because I've already placed THREE orders that are on their way to me. OK, I'm lying. Only two are on their way to me, the first package already arrived today, so I can share those try-on photos with you. This is hot off the press, so you'll have to excuse the post-Pilates hair and workout leggings. And I have crazy eye in the second photo because I was staring at a certain beagle creeping in the background.


So, the plaid portofino was a lot more sheer than the rest of my portofinos. I have a dot portofino, a white portofino, and the ivory with contrast piping, and I don't wear a cami under any of them. I will have to for this one though. Not my favorite, but I still love it enough to look past that slight negative.

The diamond print portofino is THE BEST! I really like this one a lot. It's definitely something that will easily dress up or down. It's the normal weight of the traditional portofinos, and I love that the print is just a touch preppy. This will be on repeat, I know it.

I had been on the hunt for a buffalo plaid top for awhile. But I didn't want one that was flannel because I wanted to be able to wear it year round, and just the thought of flannel during weather like this makes me wanna run nekked in a walk-in cooler. That's why I think this one is perfect and if you've been looking for one, too, look no further. It's pretty lightweight, so that means perfect for layering and still manageable for warmer months. And check out the side view - perfect length on me for leggings. (I'm 5'-2")


And in case your body is shaped like a model, I figured I'd post the stock photos for you. As soon as my other packages arrive and I am able to try stuff on, I shall share those goodies with you, too!

Still not convinced you need Buffalo Plaid? Hop over to see Shay's Pinspiration and that may change your mind!


So, spill it. What are you shopping for this weekend?!

  1. I just updated my post to link to yours today since you have some excellent try-on notes. I think I already spent all my money on the Express sale! LOL. I got my first order yesterday just like you and am awaiting TWO MORE. I don't think it will all work out but I have to try. Lots of jewelry thought and I'm pretty sure most of that will fit!

    1. I'm excited to get my other stuff! But I guess now it's really just that striped dress, the black slip ons, and the scuba leggings. I truly am excited for fall. And post season baseball :)

  6. You did really well girl. Love the sweater, chambray overalls and layering/topper pieces you got, especially. Gorgeous necklaces and booties too. I also super love and want the red buffalo plaid Portofino. It suits you. I can see it being super versatile. =)

    Enjoy the Holiday Weekend!! <3 Ada.

    1. The buffalo plaid is not actually a portofino! It's a different material, and it's got a longer, more relaxed fit - which makes it perfect for leggings! Pretty excited to wear it again and again!
      Thanks! Hope you're enjoying your vacation!

  9. haha, i just had that camo sweater from the loft in my hands (and in the dressing room) the other day!!! I haven't bought it yet, but I still love it!!! Love your buffalo plaid! My sister got a cardigan/wrap last year in buffalo print and I wasn't sure how I felt about it for me. I think it's going to gain major popularity this year though, and I do love it with leopard print!! Great purchases! Looking forward to seeing what else you get!

    1. I reaaaaally want the camo sweater. I think Tara from Mix and Match Fashion has it (or something super similar) and I always covet it. I am just wary bc I don't wear my camo tops as much as my camo bottoms. Hmm.. Conundrum!!

    1. It's so odd how I am planning for fall even though it's still pretty summery out! I think I'm in denial because I am sick of sweating! Hope you find your perfect fall wish list items! Thanks for reading!

  14. I went to Costco this weekend, so nothing especially exciting. A bucketload of toilet paper! ;)

    In case I have not already left a comment before, this is just a quick note to say hi. I visited your blog during the month of August and I liked what I saw, so I've added you to my feedreader and am following your blog. :)

    Cheers!

    1. Haha! That's awesome! Toilet paper is certainly a necessity and not that cheap, I may add!
