5 Fall Staple Pieces Under $50

I have been wanting to share a fall capsule blog post for so long and as soon as I sit down to write it I come up with a list a mile long! So, I challenged myself to pick 5 Fall Staple Pieces that I wear throughout the season. The kicker being that they have to be under $50. After having this thought, I messaged some of my best blogger friends and they loved the idea as well! So, we are teaming up for a fun giveaway over on instagram this week! We are giving away a $250 visa gift card to one lucky winner! For details on how to enter, make sure to follow me on IG!

Now on to my 5 Fall Staple Pieces Under $50


One reason Fall is my favorite season is because I get to pull out my most comfortable pair of pants that is acceptable to wear out of the house. That's right, you guessed it...LEGGINGS! It's leggings season friends! And I have found some great tunic length tees, sweaters and sweatshirts that work perfectly with my favorite leggings. THIS PAIR is a great 'dupe' for the Zella leggings and have great quality and are less than $26 with prime shipping. Shop my favorite leggings under $50 below...


I always think of fall when I see black jeans. They go perfectly with the plaid tops, the chunky sweaters and booties! I found the most comfortable pair recently from Old Navy! They are jeggings, so they have the elastic waist band (score!) and the distressing on them is perfect. They have a distressed hem and are slightly shorter making them the perfect length for booties. Linking some of my other black denim favorites under $50 below...


Plaid is probably the first thing I think of when I think about dressing for fall. A flannel or plaid button down top is a must have in your wardrobe. This plaid tunic button down is so soft and I just love the colors! Linking all of my favorite plaid tops under $50 below...


This v-neck tunic length sweater is perfect with leggings! It also comes in tall and petite sizes for length. I have this oatmeal color, but it also comes is so many pretty colors for fall! These sweaters can be easily layered with a vest, blanket scarf or jacket. 


Finding a pair of cute booties under $50 can be challenging. However, I am pleasantly surprised at the quality and comfort level of this pair and this pair of booties from Target! Both are under $38 and run true to size. The taupe ones are the perfect neutral shade that will go with everything, but I'm also loving these cognac ones that are perfect to match with all the warm tones for fall.

Target Finds | September 2019

Girl walks into Target to make returns... Girl blacks out and tried on all the things... Happens to me every time! Anyone else? 

There are so many adorable new arrivals for fall at Target! I was able to try on a lot when I was in the store, but also found a bunch more online. I wanted to share some of my favorite recent Target finds with you guys before some of the popular items sell out (because they will!)

As always, thank you so much for shopping through my links! If you are shopping from your phone and are redirected to the Target app, I will not get credit unfortunately. So, I just kindly ask if you could check out on the Target website in safari. Thank you for supporting my blog!!

I'll start with what I was able to try on in the store...

*Sizing reference: I am 5'2" and typically wear a small in tops and a 4/Small in bottoms at Target

First up. how pretty are these long sleeve boho stye dresses?! Perfect colors for fall and look adorable with booties! Fit for these is true to size. I am in a small in both. 


Next, I knew I had to try on these animal print crew neck sweaters. The quality of these is SO good for the price! They are so soft and fit true to size. There is also another leopard print version that I will link below. These sweaters are less than $20!!


I thought these floral blouses were so pretty for fall! These are great because you can dress them up or down. Pair with jeans or dress them up with work pants and heels if you work in a business casual office. Both run true to size. Both are less than $25!


More cozy sweaters that I couldn't resist! Both are SO soft! I love the v neck fit and both run slightly oversized. I'm wearing a small in both sweaters. I personally like the oversized fit. Both are less than $25!


I'm always a sucker for Target's graphic tees! These are usually found in the junior section, so I always size up to e medium in these for a loser fit. I LOVED these cozy cardigans too! The colors are just perfect for fall! 

Also, I have to mention that the jeans I'm wearing in this try on came home with me. I LOVE the fit and comfort level of these jeans! They are high waisted, stretchy (but won't lose their shape) and I love the subtle distressing on them. They also have a raw hem at the bottom making it easy if you want to roll up for wearing with booties. The wash is just perfect too! I give these jeans 5 stars!!


One staple item for fall is a plaid top! These are both long enough for leggings, if you size up in the one on the left (I'm in a medium). I am wearing my true size small in the one on the right, this one is true tunic length. I love these plaid tops paired with the 'liquid leggings'. This was my first time trying on these leggings and I have to say I am pretty impressed with the quality since they are only $16!! Such a great 'dupe' for the Spanx faux leather leggings. The main different being that the Spanx leggings are much more of a compression legging and they help wit 'suck you in'. The liquid leggings run true to size (I'm in a small). 


Another fun look for fall is a sweater poncho! Target just came out with a bunch of different sweater poncho styles. I love this v neck one and it looks great with a striped long sleeve tee underneath. They only had a M/L in the store, so this one looks a little too big on me, but you get the gist! This outfit would look great with some tall boots as well!


Last, but not least, probably one of my favorite looks! This leopard cami and cardigan came home with me! I love this combo together because you can dress it up or down. Pair the cami and cardigan with work pants and heels or tuck into a skirt for work! This cardigan is perfect for the transitional weather because it is thinner than most other cardigans. Both run true to size I'm in a small in both. 


I am also loving all the shoes, booties and boots available at Target! Trust me when I say to order these online because the shoes section is always so picked over in the stores!

Target also always has the best handbags! I have had this backpack for over a year now and use it all the time.

August Favorites

I can not believe it's already September?! I felt like this summer flew by! It's time once again to share my top selling items from the month of August. Lots of great staple pieces that will help transition your wardrobe into fall!

As some of you may already know (or if you're new here, you may not know) I am an affiliate with RewardStyle. This means that I get a small commission every time someone clicks on one of the links I share (wether on the blog, IG, swipe up or facebook) and makes a purchase from that link. It could just be the exact item that I linked. Or it could be that someone clicked on the link and bought that item + some other items. I get a small commission from the total purchase.

Another perk for being an affiliate with RewardStyle is that they provide analytics from the links I share. So, I get to see how many people click on the link, made a purchase from the link and how much commission I made from each purchase. What I love about these analytics is that I get to see what items sold the most and what items you guys loved the most! This helps me plan out future content as well! Foe example, the most purchased item from the month of August was this Target shirt dress. I actually wrote a blog post sharing 4 ways to style this dress last month, which probably helped boost the sales. This tells me you guys not only love Target (as much as I do), but that you like it when I show how to style items in different ways.

What do the numbers tell me? You like affordable, stylish and versatile! 
Yes, yes and YES! Me too, girl!! 

I also really appreciate you all for shopping through the links I provide. It really does help keep this 'little engine that could' style blog going! I usually invest most of what I make back into the blog (ie. buying more clothes!), so thank you SO much for your support!! 

And now for the top 10 selling items from the month of August!

This right here is my favorite basic outfit for fall! Leggings, tunic tank, denim jacket and comfy sneakers are my jam!

These swing tanks are perfect to wear with leggings! They come in tall and petite sizes too if you need the extra length to wear with leggings. I suggest sizing up for the denim jackets. I'm linking to a really great pair of high waisted compression leggings that I tried on in store last time I was there.
