I borrowed this scarf from my mom a while ago. I love the plaid pattern and colors, but it is square-shaped, so I never really knew exactly how to wear it. I recently got back from a short trip to France, where my french sister was wearing a bandana around her neck. Plaid old, classic printed bandana – with shorts, cowboy boots and a plain tee – and she was completely adorable and super trendy! So when I got back, I tried to take this french style and make it my own, and it completely worked here! I got a lot of compliments on this scarf, and it totally made this outfit… along with my new favorite booties that I scored from TJMaxx for just $35! Ankle booties are super trendy right now, and are perfect for seasonal weather like we have had lately in New England! TJ’s had a pretty good stock!

Trying to get a few more summer looks in before it gets too cold in New England! On one hand I get really upset that the sunny warm summer months are coming to an end and my pool days are down to zero. O the other hand though, I get a little excited to switch up my wardrobe and start wearing warmer clothes again. It is almost like getting a whole new wardrobe because my clothes have been put away in a trunk all summer just awaiting my return in the fall! So I am a little happy to be seeing them soon… and happy to share some new fall looks with you too!

There are so many great sales currently at retail of summer clothes! If you were missing a few items that you never got around to purchasing this year, now is the time to get them — on clearance and while you still can! I saw this cute top on clearance at the Loft a few weeks ago, amongst many other cute things I wanted to buy… had to pull myself away! Thanks for reading! I am hoping to get back on track with my posts in the coming weeks!

As you probably know by now, I love my bargains!! This entire outfit is pretty reasonably priced, especially when you take into account all of the layered items here! It is pretty trendy right now to layer necklaces as well as apparel. Since I normally wear statement necklaces, (it would be way overkill to layer those puppies) it was nice for a change to be able to work that jewelry trend here. H&M makes these jersey mini skirts for just $5.95 — not even on sale!They have tons of fun colors, and it is a very easy bottom to wear for summer. They are now making a jersey pencil version too, Old Navy actually has a bunch for pretty cheap here for more of a work-wear solution! Every other part of this outfit was not bought this year, but it’s always good when you can work in older pieces with newer styles to get more out of your wardrobe!
