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

  • Currently wishing I could smudge away this cold... if only it worked like that! 
Instead, I’ll be sipping hot tea and popping Vitamin C, but if you’re looking for a good read on “smudging” check out my latest blog post (link in bio) for some enlightenment on the subject.

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Just a smudge.... Have you ever used sage/smudge sticks to clear out negative energy? I know it sounds crazy but I absolutely swear by this method!!! Sometimes you just need a smudge, ya know?! P.S. you can now shop my looks and decor via @liketoknow.it

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!
