FALL STAPLES FOR LESS

Hi guys!  I hope you’ve all had a great week!  I’m getting so excited because it’s August which is my birthday month and it’s that much closer to fall!  I’ve been picking up a few good layering and staple pieces that I’ve seen here and there and they have all either been on sale or super inexpensive!  So if you’re on a budget, and you’re looking for fall staples for less I’ve got you covered!

Also, the traditional fall colors are finally in style again which is awesome because I’ve truly missed them this past year and felt like none of these colors were around.  I’ve been seeing mustards, rust, pumpkin spice, burgundy, and denim, lots and lots of denim!  

Here is a sneak peek of what I’ve been buying lately to bulk up my fall wardrobe!

my go-to staple pieces for fall

This cross-body Madewell bag has been such a great addition to my wardrobe!  It holds a decent amount of stuff, has a divider, and it’s under $100.00.  I love the color for fall!  Sign up for their email list and you will be the first to know when sales are coming!  Psst, they do sales like 20 and 30% off all the time!

I wore this super soft t-shirt dress the other day with my rain boots and a jean jacket.  It was so comfy and under $20.  I also picked up this crew neck tee in a few colors for $5 each the other day. These will be perfect to layer with this fall and winter.

Got this Lucky Brand jean jacket at Marshalls for super cheap, under $50!  I found a similar Lucky Brand jacket on sale and linked it for you here.  I’m so happy to see so much denim this year!

These booties are so good!  I got two pairs that are similar but different colors at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale last year and because I loved and wore them so much, I bought this pair at this year’s sale!

Buying for your fall wardrobe doesn’t have to be expensive, you just need to know where to spend and where to save!  I get lots of little tees for layering and rarely ever buy them for over $20.  The sweaters I buy are usually under $50 depending on how bad I want it.   Shoes, jeans, and coats are where I like to splurge a little more as that can make all the difference and you want to be able to wear them for longer than just one season.  Also, there are tons of back to school sales going on in late July/early August so pay attention to your ads and emails!  Want to know another way I save money shopping and actually make money back?  One word Ebates!  Believe it or not, this site will give you cash back on tons of online and in-store purchases for stores like Madewell, Forever 21, Levi’s, and even designer brands like Rag and Bone to name a few.  You can sign up here and when you spend your first $25 through Ebates you will automatically get $25 placed into your cashback account! Getting paid for shopping?  It’s a win-win if you ask me!

Now, I can’t wait to break out some of these layers and have a Harry Potter weekend/marathon on TV while baking something comforting and burning yummy fall scented candles!  Doesn’t that sound amazing? What are you looking forward to this fall?  Do you have any good buying tips you’d like to share?  Please feel free to comment below!

Cheers-  Ashley Nicole

  • A Halloween colored golden hour and this house was dressed perfectly for the occasion... It’s still heating up here in the south and by the end of these photos my overalls were sticking to my legs so bad that I had to hike them up to get back into the car 😅 Hey fall over here!🙋‍♀️🍂 Anyone else dealing with all this heat still?
  • Happy first of October!!! 🎃 I’ve gone batty decorating the porch... 🦇 I added a few pops of green for a “gourd-gous” scene as my witchy side reminds me, tis near Halloween! Looking forward to starting October off right with all the spooky magic this month brings! Clearly Halloween is one of my fave holidays and I’ve been so ready for it! Have you started decorating yet? I’d love to know what you’re doing for porch decor this year! Also, what do you think of my DIY painted doormat?
  • Every year for as long as I can remember, my family has celebrated the fall season by bringing home a bag of @brachscandy Autumn Mix. #sponsored This year, I thought it might be nice to share the tradition with friends by making them a spooky sweet treat because it's not Halloween without Brach's candy corn. That said, I stopped by @target on my way home to pick some up (plus a bag of Pumpkins for me) and whipped up this super simple Dark Chocolate Candy Corn Bark (recipe below). To add some extra holiday spirit, I placed them in cute goodie bags with a little tag that says "This is for you, Boo!" Can't wait to hand these out and keep the tradition going! Happy Haunting, friends! (1) 12oz. Bag of Dark Chocolate Chunks (melted)
(1) 10-15 of Brach's Candy Corn
Sprinkles of Your Choice
(1) Cookie Sheet Covered with Parchment Paper

After the chocolate has been melted, carefully spread the warm chocolate out on the pan and smooth over into one layer.  Add candy corn/sprinkles and allow to cool in the fridge.  Once cooled, break the chocolate apart into large chunks/shards and disperse as you please.

  • Most of the time my days off consist of me running errands, cleaning and working on stuff for the blog, not to mention, all the other things that come up in life. 
Today, I managed to wake up early and check out the local farmer’s market (they had 🎃 check out my stories if you wanna sneak a peek), catch up with some good friends that I haven’t seen in awhile, and even squeezed in a little DIY project that I’ve been wanting to try for quite some time (also in stories)... This was a rare day indeed, but a really good one and it pains me that I have to remind myself to do more things that bring me joy as it seems like I’m always busy these days. That being said,  I just thought I’d check in with you because I know first hand how easy it is to run yourself ragged. So here it goes, what have you done to feed your soul/bring you joy lately? ✨

  • When it’s 92 degrees out, but you still wanna get your fall on! 🍂✨

Lately I’ve been cranking up the AC to pretend it’s cool out, lighting pumpkin candles, flipping through autumnal books/magazines, and watching Harry Potter because I’m determined to get in the mood for fall one way or another! 🤣 What are you guys doing to get your fall on? .
