I am loving that the temps have finally dropped. Mostly because I’m officially ready for fall – aka my closet is now fully prepared. I’ve been surfing the web for the last few months for some amazing coats and sweaters.

I currently can’t stop wearing this coat that I scored for a hell of a deal. It pairs well with my mostly black, grey and white wardrobe. I’ve been focusing on a “capsule wardrobe” for this season, meaning I’ve stuck with a general theme to what I’ve been purchasing. The benefit of this is that everything will coordinate together and it makes for easy dressing in the morning when I have to dress for both work and blogging events on the same day. I’m sure you’ll start to pick up on a common trend in my outfit posts for the rest of the month.

The first piece I decided to purchase for my fall capsule wardrobe was this maxi vest. Quite the find at Nordstrom Rack. I’ve been eyeing a longer, structured vest for a while now but hadn’t had any luck finding an affordable version – most were made from cheap, flimsy material and just didn’t layer properly. I was ecstatic when I found this high-end style and even more delighted when I read the less than $50 price tag. Score!

  • #ad | Sunny weather calls for a day of beach cruising and naps in the sand 🌊🌴☀️Here's a peek into my beach bag essentials! I've recently swapped out most of my chemical products to mineral-based alternatives, and this @coola Mineral Body Sunscreen has quickly become a fave. Why? It's SPF 30, certified- vegan, coral reef friendly, uses more than 70% organic ingredients, AND has a sheer finish. Check, check and check to all my sunscreen requirements 😎Have you switched to mineral sunscreens? @ultabeauty #coola #mineralalltheway #suncare #beachessentials #summerready
  • I should really clean this mirror more often 🤔 Anyway... here’s my uniform as of lately. Shoutout to @aninebingofficial for making the best “lived in” tees 👊🏼 #liketkit
