I now interrupt your regularly scheduled New York Fashion Week post to bring you this very important Summer outfit attire. Ok I am kidding, but I figured that both you and I could use a little break from all of the NYFW madness. Also, tomorrow officially marks the first day of Fall so I felt obligated to hurry up and get this long overdue post up!
Summer is officially coming to an end. Literally, tomorrow and now the weather report is saying we could have 60 degree weather next week so I think that means it’s about time to officially say goodbye to Summer. While I think this is the first year I am actually excited for some cool weather, I still hate pushing all of my favorite Summer wear to the back of my closet. I always feel guilty not getting as much use as I can out of those late Summer purchases, anybody else?
Now, being that it is the end of a season, is the time to stock up on items that you can use for next year. Stores are needing to clear out last season’s clothes in order to make room for all of the new Fall attire. That means “last season’s” clothes are priced for a steal because they just need to get those clothes outta there! A lot of the time you will find that there are even current season items that are marked way down so now is the time to pounce!
I know it can be hard to think about the future. Believe me, unless you are talking about my next 3 meals, that’s about as far into the future as I like to think about. But I have slowly learned that stocking up at the end of the season is a HUGE money saver and is the perfect time to add a few pieces to your wardrobe that you know you will wear without a doubt next year. So what am I stocking up on? Some items include basic tees and tanks, denim, sandals, wedges, comfy rompers and dresses, and swimsuits. I rounded up some of my recent purchases and other items I have my eye on below. O and I think you will be happy to know that all of my picks are under $25!!
