In preparation for fall, I have started to take a closer look at my closet to determine the things I need to add for the coming season. Since I’m saving up to buy some “investment pieces” (like a leather jacket and flat riding boots), I am trying to only purchase affordable items that will transition into the cooler weather. August and September are typically the months when I plan for a larger shopping budget, especially as I get ready to travel to NYC for Lucky FABB and Fashion Week.
I have placed a few online orders as well, but will wait to share those purchases after they arrive & I can determine if I’ll be keeping them. In addition to the pieces below, I also spent $44.98 on items at TJ Maxx (seen in my latest outfit post here), bringing my purchases for August thus far to $120.67.

i bought H&M pants with the same print as your top! can't wait to wear them 🙂
I really love the peplum top!
I'm also looking at flat riding boots and a black leather jacket for the fall. Would love to see what you find that's wallet friendly. 🙂
The speckled peplum top is my favorite. It would look cute with colored denim! I'm sure it looks great by itself for the summer, or with a cardigan in the fall! Good pick 🙂

I love this post! It's nice to see how much you have spent also because I feel like you can spend that much on one item

love that top!
Your fall pieces are SO CUTE so far! I love that peplum top, and the color of the pants is perfection – my go to color for fall! & so exciting that you're going to Lucky FABB! I was hoping to make it this year, but no such luck! Sigh! Next year!
I have an eye on the H&M pants. The color is just awesome. Probably going to buy them too 😀

I love this time of year because we get to look forward to new trends, new colors, and new textures. That top is stunning! Can't wait to see you wear it!

Ooohh, really love that peplum top! It looks so good with those pants too! I'm definitely not ready for Fall shopping, but looks like I better get ready quickly since it's already arriving in stores!
Absolutely adore that top, such a great print (price, too). I, too, have switched gears to fall and have stopped buying summer pieces.

Um…. YES to all of this, especially the pants! Love the color – perfect for fall!

loving the peplum and top and shoes
can't believe they are old navy
I like how you are taking the time to consider your Fall purchases. It's something I need to do myself, I get excited when the first fall items arrive in the shops and can make snap (read: BAD) decisions! Great tips here. I bought a leather jacket recently and I know it's going to get a lot of wear.
Those pieces are all great! Can't wait to see how you style them.:)

I'm seriously in love with that peplum spotted top!!!
I'm currently making a list of fall/winter items I need to purchase! Love your picks! Too bad there isnt an H&M where I live
