I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. This is my favorite time of year. For weather, activities and of course, shopping. So today I’m sharing 25 pieces worth adding to your wardrobe…and they are all under $200 – woot!

Dressing at this time of year can be so damn difficult. It could be cool in the mornings and then in the 70s by the time you leave. Or, if you’re New York this week, it’s October and it’s wildly humid and feels like you’re living in a tropical jungle rather than Fall. So that’s been NEAT.

It’s getting dressed on these kinds of days that I fall back onto old favorites. I’ve had this jacket since I lived in San Francisco over five years ago! Military jackets can be your best layering friend at this time of year. And chambray. Always rely on chambray. This one I’m wearing from Old Navy is such a good fit (not to mention the right price!)

What are your go-tos for transitional dressing? Spill!

So I don’t really remember the last time I was in a Forever 21 but the other weekend I headed there as I’ve been on the hunt for a hat to bring to Europe with me. True to form, I was immediately distracted from my pursuits when I saw this skirt. I immediately thought it looked like something I’d buy from Tibi or Cynthia Rowley but low and behold there it was in Forever 21 for $27. I snatched it up immediately.

I wore this look to a Fashion Week party when it was 80 some degrees (crop top last seen here) but the tweed fabric is certainly more suitable for fall when I’ll be wearing it with booties and a cropped sweater.

The brand has majorly upped their game of recent so if you haven’t perused in the last few months (or years!) it is definitely worth a look. I’ve linked some of my other favorites below (the hat I just bought and you can get a peek on Snapchat @meghandono!)

I got back from San Francisco on Sunday and there’s definitely a hint of Fall in the air and it makes me so excited! As mentioned here, it is definitely my favorite season as evidenced by the sheer amount of packages I came back to after being away for the week. I may have gone a bit nuts preparing for packing up to go to Europe in a couple of weeks! :)
