A relic of going to school for 14 years is that every fall I look into my wardrobe and feel the need to spruce it up. It’s back to school shopping, preparation for a winter hibernation and sartorial restlessness, all wrapped up in one. But I’m also bound by reason, and know a complete wardrobe overhaul is both wasteful and inefficient. I like to think I’m a pretty good budgeter (and read on for a budgeting idea!), and so I try not to drop a lot of money on revitalizing my wardrobe each season.
That being said, adding a few new pieces to your fall wardrobe is a great way to keep from getting sad about the impending winter. Plus, fall is a season to buckle down and get to work, and investing in a few new bits can help to reflect any changes you may want to make in your life. Here are a few pieces I’ve seen around that could spice up any fall wardrobe. They’re all from small or sustainable stores, so indulge and help the earth!
- Picasso-inspired hand earrings ($5)
- High neck ribbed lavender tank ($19.99)
- High rise flare blue jeans ($25)
- Hammered brass post earrings ($39.31)
- Open neck slim ribbed top ($48)
- Tie front linen blouse ($60)
- Marine striped shirt ($68)
- Corduroy cropped trousers ($68)
- Double strap cami ($85.17)

Be it your fall shopping list or a new computer to do your fall shopping with, budgeting and saving up for a bigger purchase can be hard. Catalogue with Credit is a great resource for some credit lending sites that can help. And while you should never purchase something you can’t afford, if the need to see Hedi Slimane’s new Celine collection on a new flat screen TV is proving too much for your wallet, check it out for some budgeting friendly options!
