The hard work I've put into wardrobe planning and capsule building is paying off and the timing could not be better. I am completely overcommitted at work this fall, so I have very little free time to shop in person and have to limit my online perusal to short breaks. But thanks to a few years hanging around YLF I feel like I have a clear idea of my needs and wants. So much so that I spent literally less than 5 minutes looking over the new JCrew fall items and placed an order. This is unheard of! No waiting for the 40% off promotion! No wringing my hands over colors! No second thoughts about the total $! There is definitely freedom in understanding what my needs are and what my budget will allow.
A blue v-neck with a fun sleeve detail. I prefer v-necks when I can find them and need some light to midtown tops to balance out darker colors.
A striped sweater in a wildcard color combination. Striped tops are a wardrobe essential for me. I don't usually wear caramel, but I figured black/white stripe tops are a dime a dozen so I should try something new.
A sweater jacket. I am constantly after casual toppers and it's hard to find them in light colors. I hope this color does not skew too warm. We'll see.
Of course, I will need to try these pieces on. They are not necessarily slam dunks and I will need to assess color and fit in person. I'll report back when they arrive. Happy fall shopping everyone!
