At this point, we're right into the transitional season, and I couldn't be happier about it! Current weather here on the front range has highs in the mid 70s to low 80s and overnight lows in the 40s.

While I ended up with nothing from NAS this year, I have gotten a good start on refreshing my fall/winter wardrobe. I'm still using the 5-piece system and have gathered my new additions into a collection. Boden has been working for me this year, and I picked up several items in their recent 30% off sale, which kept some pricier pieces under my $100 basics threshold.

Basics (essentials):

  1. oversized black v-neck sweater
  2. burgundy cropped pants (currently out for hemming)
  3. ivory v-neck blouse
  4. black v-neck blouse (backordered, but a dupe of the ivory)

Five statement pieces (or basics over $100):

  1. shibori poncho
  2. brown leather jacket

I have room for 3 more statement pieces. One spot is reserved for a new pair of booties. I'm drawn to the harness style and have put several options in the Finds. Any thoughts?

Also, that leaves two spots for wild cards or upgrades. I'll need to mull those over, and perhaps save one for a pick-me-up later in the season, but any suggestions would be welcome! A long cashmere cardigan a la Suz? Something sparkly for the holidays?
