Monthly Shopping Guide: What to Buy In October

I can’t believe October is here and excited to share my monthly shopping guide: what to buy in October. I tend to get most of my mood board inspiration from Pinterest. These monthly shopping guides are all focused on maximizing your wardrobe to complement your fall capsule wardrobe taking you through you events for the upcoming holiday season and meant to be mixed and match various ways. If you are following me on Instagram, you all loved my guide for September as the focus was jackets and the ever so popular shacket, blazers, boots and fall tops as well as my favorite fall accessories.

Monthly Shopping Guide: What to Buy In October

For October, I wanted to keep the upcoming holiday season in mind. Today, sharing some key wardrobe pieces that will have you ready for the upcoming month. If you are looking for how to dress up your current capsule so your ready for any holiday party or family pictures, you came to the right spot. Also, you want to take another peek at what you currently own once the colder weather hits. If you are like me time seems to be flying and the more I can prep myself is better so I’m not in panic mode when a last minute event arises.

Classics Styled for Any Occassion

I personally love slip skirts going into the fall months because they are great pieces to wear with sneakers or heels for an event. Adding an embellished sweater to your wardrobe is great to wear with jeans or layer over your slip dress. You can style any of these pieces with a heel or another way style is more casual with a Chelsea or combat boot. I love added a holiday heel that you can wear with jeans or a dress like this beautiful fall sheer one. If you want it more casual, add a moto jacket over it!

Add Faux Leather to Your Wardrobe

Adding leather to your wardrobe such as a pant, top, skirt or leather blazer are great additions for your wardrobe going into the holidays. I love that they are so versatile. A leather top can be perfect for date night with denim. Adding a leather pant with a dressy top is perfect for holiday parties. Besides a leather pant, a leather blazer is a perfect work option taking you straight to the holiday dinner party.

Take A Look at Your Fall Capsule

Take inventory of your basics. Do you have a black leather legging or black jean? Which classic sweater are you missing to create a monochromatic look. Is your classic black boot in good shape and can last you another season? It’s important going into winter months know you have the staples in your closet that will make getting dressed easier.
