It’s here – the last Friday of summer! Yes, fall officially begins on Wednesday, September 22 so next week this time I’m hoping to have all my fall decor out. It’s just still so hot here that it feels funny pulling out all the decor but once the season is official I’m all in.
There are a few things on my radar as I begin to ponder fall decor. Last year I picked up a few pumpkins from the Target Dollar spot that were faux leather. I’m continuing to see the velvet pumpkins this year too. One thing is for sure – pumpkins aren’t what they used to be! I’m drawn to these and these from Amazon and already ordered these.
I am always on the hunt for a good bra. Over the summer I really fell for these soft bras. They are great for every day and super comfortable. I own three now and can honestly say I wear them the most. But I am always open to try something new and more than anything I am looking for a minimizer bra that is comfortable and does the job. When Soma offered to send me a few bras I jumped at the chance. I was gifted this one and this one.
I really like this minimizer bra and plan to order one today. Because today starts Soma’s Anniversary Event! All Soma Bras are $29 and you can purchase a panty for $5 with your bra purchase. So for $34 you can get yourself a sweet set! The event runs from 9/17-9/19, short and sweet! From 9/19 – 9/21 you can save 25% sitewide – mark your calendars as this is a great time to get new pjs (I love the cool nights line).
Favorite #3 & #4
My next favorite should come as no surprise, my new silk blouse! I shared it on Wednesday and you all loved it too. A silk blouse is a wardrobe staple that can be worn in a variety of ways. I want to get one in cream next!
You’ve also seen my faux leather pants twice this week too. I absolutely love them ( they were shared here and here). I realize they are a little on the pricey side so if you like the look and want to try the trend you might want to consider these. I ordered them on Wednesday and will report back on how they compare. But, I saw them on Youtube and they looked fantastic! The best part? They are under $30 and also come in denim as well as a faux suede.
Let’s talk Target favorites for a sec, shall we? My pretty plaid, lightweight shirt is on sale for $15. I love the colors in this top, you saw it last here with this sweater vest. It’s considered a gauze fabric – I don’t really feel like it’s very gauzy, but it is lightweight enough for now and will layer fabulously once the weather cools. I think there are limitless styling possibilities – scoop it up now and size up for a roomy fit!
I’ve shared this dress on Instagram and it was a hit. I suggest sizing down, I ended up with an XS because the small was a little too roomy – and trust me, I am not an XS. I think it’s such a sweet dress – I paired it with some my new booties and hat and feel like it’s a great early fall (can we please stop saying the word “transition”) look!
It was pouring rain last night when we tried to take photos so inside it was! Of course that meant my little shadow (Sophie was glued to my side).
