I guess October brings the shopping out of me because I bought a lot this month. In my defense, I was redoing my room and it was getting colder outside, so a lot of this is decor and clothes that I actually needed. Some of the things I bought this month, I can’t help but obsess over which is why I wanted to do this post.
Here are some of my favorite things I bought this month that I will be using so much this fall and winter.
American Eagle & Aerie Sweaters
This summer, I got rid of a lot of my cold weather clothes. Don’t ask me why, I think I was in a cleaning mood and obviously took it out on my closet. However, where I live, its starting to get really cold, really quick and so I bought a bunch of really warm sweaters throughout these past couple of weeks. My favorites were these ones that I bought from American Eagle and Aerie (two of my favorite stores). They always have the softest sweaters and I like how simple they are and easy to style. They also are always having really good sales and I feel like I never buy anything at full price when I go there.
Anyone who knows me knows how much I love hats and scarves for the winter time. They are so, so warm and I am always so, so cold. I bought a bunch from H&M recently for a fairly reasonable price. I’ve been really into lighter, more neautral colors lately, I can feel myself drifting away from my obsession with black clothing/accessories. These three that I got are some of my favorites. The pink one has such a nice (I guess you can say) high end feel, the gray one matches everything, and the brown one is just super cozy looking. I am definitely going to get plenty of use out of these this winter.
This Winter Coat
Okay, so I’ve officially hopped onto the teddy bear coat bandwagon..kind of. It’s not brown, and its definitely a little big and warmer than the usual one, but I needed it for this east coast weather. I got this coat from Macy’s last week and let me tell you, it is the softest thing in the world. I honestly feel like I’m wearing a big blanket. I decided to get it in black, just because I liked the way it looked more but I might go back and get the brown too since they were on sale.
This was probably my favorite thing out of this list. I have been wanting all black Timberlands for the longest time but I always thought my feet looked really weird in them for some reason. I tried them on at the mall just for fun, and ended up falling in love. They are so warm and comfy, and they are going to be perfect for the snow this winter. They of course are also really cute, and I’ve been loving wearing them with fluffy socks.
Speaking of fluffy socks, I found the cutest ones at Aerie (okay, how many times can you use the word “cute”, Colleen?). They are the softest socks I have ever owned and also really warm. I got two pairs but I kind of want to go back and get more. I love socks like these because they are the perfect length for boots and add a “cozy” factor to your look.
Bath & Body Works Candle
Okay, I have officially found the best candle ever created and I couldn’t just not talk about it. Bath & Body Works was having a sale where almost all of their three wick candles were half off. I looked at a bunch of them but wasn’t too crazy about any. Then I found this one and fell in love. It’s like they managed to capture every smell of spooky season yet and put it into this candle that screams cozy. Also, look at it. It’s so cute. Candles are definitely a part of decor for me and its rare that I find a scent that I like that also has a cute container. I definitely want to go back and check out the other scents in this specific collection.
My New Sign From Target
I feel like everyone I know has this sign in their room, but I have been eyeing it for so long. My dad painted my room for me this month, so I figured it would be a great time to get the sign since my room would now officially be complete and I could choose where I want to hang it. I ended up putting it right next to my bed because the gold detailing went really nice with my gold pillows. I also love that I wake up every morning and its kind of the first thing I see. You can see a picture of it in my post from earlier this month.
