There are a few times a year when I shop...I mean REALLY shop...like hide bags in the trunk and hope Ross doesn't see our online banking statement kind of shopping.
The deals over Labor Day weekend aren't necessarily any better than Memorial Day, President's Day, Black Friday or the day after Christmas sales, but for some reason I always seem to do most of my fall/winter shopping during this weekend. I try to stock up on basic pieces that can be remixed during the months of October through February.
There are a few new styles that I have my eyes on, a handful of trends that I am still loving from last year and a few pieces that I want more of for the upcoming seasons.
Express Leather Moto Jacket // Steve Madden Leather Slip-On Sneakers // J.Crew Factory Tunic Pocket Sweater // Sole Society Cognac Bag // Gap Distressed Denim // J.Crew Factory Houndstooth Skirt // Gap Buffalo Plaid Dress // Old Navy Utility Jacket // Old Navy Graphic Tee // Vince Camuto Cuff // Sole Society Tassel Necklace // Old Navy Floppy Hat // Forever 21 Buffalo Plaid Scarf // Forever 21 Glasses // Express Python Clutch
I am happy to see that buffalo check/plaid is back again. I picked up a few pieces last year and am loving this dress from the Gap, this one from Old Navy and the black and white version of this scarf.
I love the relaxed feel of distressed boyfriend jeans. I have the best luck buying my denim at Old Navy and Gap. I featured this pair from the Gap above, but also really like the wash of this pair too.
Because I have gotten so much wear our of my utility cargo vest from Old Navy, I plan on grabbing the jacket version this year as well. It's a versatile piece that can be layered over just about anything.
Last year I took the plunge and purchased a few faux leather pieces. I wore all of them more than I expected and look forward to making a few more purchases with leather detailing like this skirt and sweater from J.Crew Factory.
Most retailers started their Labor Day sales yesterday, but they all will through Monday.
