36 Of My Favorite Finds Last Month

Another month come and gone, which means it’s time to look back at the clothing and accessories that caught my eye in the last 31 days. As I revisit my Pinterest board, a couple of things stand out. First, I definitely had the shopping bug. I came across so many amazing pieces that I just had to have. And second, while I’m passively shopping at random times, there are some clear themes in the items I saved. So, let’s get to it!

Barbiecore

 

This trend has exploded all over social media, and I am here for it.

PJ Salvage Barbie Lounge Shorts

Bright Colors

 

I love a rainbow of bright colors. If I see multi-bright-colored anything, my immediate reaction is I. Must. Have. If I were to provide a visual, it’s similar to the reactions in those YORK Peppermint Patties commercials.

Smart Casual

 

I had a work event this month where the dress code was “Smart Casual”. I pinned several tailored pieces, most likely influenced by this event. Also a great excuse to need another oversized blazer or try the waistcoat trend that’s been popular for awhile now. 

Reiss Luna Premium Suit Waistcoat

Zara Block Heel High Heels

A little bit of a twist on the classic Mary Jane with the square toe and block heel. The double strap looks really pretty on the feet. And this pair is also really versatile - I've paired these with jeans, work wear, and date night outfits.

Fall
