The only way I can accept that fact that fall is creeping in is by doing some shopping! I recently did a little fall shopping, although it wasn't for myself. Lucy has been in need of some serious fall clothes since her current wardrobe consists of mainly rompers and sun dresses. Now that she's walking, I'm really excited to step up her wardrobe a bit. I'm over onesies and other 'baby' clothes and I'm ready to dress her in 'real' clothes. It helps that I'm fairly frugal and take advantage of sales, coupons and other discounts when I shop for her so I can dress her like me with out feeling like I'm paying an arm and a leg. I'm also trying to be smart about my choices and buy some staple pieces that can mix and match with each other.
These are the great finds I picked up this past weekend.
Everything above can be found at either Gap or Old Navy. Great, right? (Note: I don't have a link for the brown cord shorts. I had to take a picture of the ones I bought because they aren't on the website.) I've always been a loyal Baby Gap shopper, but was pleasantly surprised when I received a mailer the other day with a coupon and picture of the below bird print dress. I decided I needed to buy it for Lucy and made a trip to Old Navy that afternoon. That quick trip turned into a bit of a shopping spree.
For fall I'm excited for stripes, layers and lots of denim. Dresses and tights, jackets, belts and boots. Seriously, this is the only way I can accept that summer is ending. Lucy's skinny little butt still doesn't fit in a number of her 12 month shorts so I will be bringing them over to the fall and pairing them with knit tights and moccasins or booties.
Have you started prepping for fall, yet?
