Fall Fashion Finds

Once you’ve seen an ad for pumpkin spice –insert anything here– more than twice before your morning commute, you know that Fall in New England has begun!

Retailers have followed suit and clearance sections are now filled with summer attire while the fall wear is front and center. Word quickly trickled down to my favorite thrift stores and I snagged some great finds to add to my Autumn collection:

This sheer tank blouse is from Thyme & Honey and can work any time of the year (in my opinion). It’s navy blue, fire engine red, and white stripes make it a perfect transition piece.

Perfect transition piece!

Seeing red.

This black poly blend tank is from Covington. It hits right below my natural waist and can either be tucked into a skirt/pant or left free-flowing.

Dress her up or down!

We have seen a lot of chambray* this summer so it’s no surprise that I found this light wash button up tank from Coldwater Creek. I am seeing burnt orange or saffron yellow pairings.

The underdog.

I am all about patterns and was instantly drawn to this pure poly long sleeve blouse from Kenar. The geometric design had me praying it would fit!

My favorite find.

Green will be a prominent color this season with hues like forest and emerald to various shades of moss like this Ann Taylor Loft wool peplum dress.

Green with envy.

Did I mention I am a sucker for a great pattern? This New York & Company poly/spandex pencil skirt keeps your attention without being too “loud”.

Mixed patterns for the win!

I tend to stick with knee-length skirts but couldn’t resist taking a step out of my comfort zone with this cream-colored lambs wool tea-length skirt by Richard and Co. This will keep me toasty warm and the blouse options are endless.

Baby it's cold outside.

I haven’t switched out my wardrobe yet as it is still 80+ degrees for the foreseeable future and I am clinging to the last few weeks of summer. Also, the big change** requires a few hours as I contemplate what pieces to pack away, what can transition into fall, and what items I am ready to donate.

For now, these pieces will be prepped and ready to go!


*Chambray is a linen-finished gingham cloth with a white weft and a colored warp, producing a mottled appearance.

**No I am NOT talking about menopause. I am referring to the day long change over of my closet and bureau that occurs 4 times a year. Though, like menopause, it can include hot flashes, irritability, depression, and fatigue.
