“If a great outfit gets you one step closer to feeling good about yourself, then it’s worth every penny.”
– Rachel Roy

Recognizing the truth of the above quote, I decided it was time to shop. Looking for some quality and budget-friendly additions to your fall wardrobe? Look no further.

In an effort to start dressing like an adult and get rid of some of the outfits I bought in high school (and with my high school self’s taste, ahem), I recently went on a shopping spree with my best friend. Our first stop was Nordstroms (who is having a major end of summer sale at the moment, including the top in this post!). This was my first time buying something from them in store…shocking, right??  It was actually a life changing experience for me because I decided to woman-up and accept that I need petites. I can’t tell you how amazing it is when clothes actually fit. I also quickly discovered a new favorite brand: Bobeau.

Here is one of the outfits that resulted. I love how this top (by Bobeau…that at the time of writing is 40% off!!) can easily be dressed up or down, and the classy yet modern sandals make it a casual dressy chic outfit (go check out those shoes, you’ll be shocked by how affordable they are!). The quality of the top’s fabric is so nice. I feel like a rockstar when I wear it. I’m a big fan of the draped top look as well. And this jacket (also by Bobeau) is the most darling thing. And it fits me (it comes in both petite and regular sizes). And the inside is the softest fabric in the world. I can’t wait for cooler weather, especially since it was 95* when these photos were taken! But it is September 1st, which means fall is almost here! Hooray!
