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

  • It’s been awhile since I’ve introduced myself and I’d like to make it a little more personal. My name is Ashley Nicole and I love sharing my life and style with you, but what I love most of all is connecting with you! It’s pretty awesome that these little squares allow us to communicate and build relationships with people all around the world without actually meeting them in person don’t you think? So here goes nothing! I’ll start by sharing 10 fun facts about me that you may not know and in return I’d love to hear something about you in the comments below! It can be literally anything the point here is to make a connection and I’d bet that we have more in common than you think! Ready, set, let’s get social!
1. My front tooth is fake! Yep, you heard me fake! When I was in 4th grade I slipped on the tile in my school bathroom and busted my front tooth. I’ll be sharing more about this as well as my before and after, what whitening product I used in between replacements and so on soon.
2. I’m terribly horrified of snakes.  I can’t even wear a snake print, they just freak me out man!
3. I work full-time as an assistant buyer, floor merchandiser, and social media manager for a retail company. 
4. My biggest pet peeve is when my husband leaves our empty tea pitcher in the fridge and doesn’t tell me we need to make more. Sweet tea is also my caffeine of choice.
5. I’m really really close with my Mom and we often get accused of being sisters because our age is so close. She had me at 16!
6. Some of my favorite foods are avocados, coconut, mushrooms, and cilantro. My husband hates all of them except cilantro. So agreeing on meals can be a bit challenging at times. 
7. I love the fall and Halloween! I blame my Mom, @marthastewart, and the historical district I grew up trick or treating in. 
8. You probably already know this one, but I loooove hats! Plus they are great for when your roots are growing and you’re in between hair appointments, ha!
9. I’ve never had a broken a bone. 🤞😬
10. I just recently discovered my love for house plants a few years ago. Now I can’t imagine my home without them! 
Your turn! Tell me something good! 😉
