apparently it is the first day of fall: that means plaid

Mums are out, 
halloween candy is stocked.

Seriously between yesterday and today there is a new chill in the air,
and I have just noticed the leaves changing around us...
fall is here.

Made better by the fact that I can now wear plaid all day every day. 
& that there will be pumpkin soft serve at our local ice cream shop... 

So I did a little fall shopping yesterday to prepare for "Sweater Weather"
{P.S. have you heard the "Sweater Weather" song from The Neighbourhood? It is my jam right now}

What I Wore: glasses- c/o Proopticals, top- H&M {thrifted}, jeans- Levis {thrifted}, shoes- ShoeDazzle, bag- 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target mini satchel with gusset in yellow

I got sucked into the vortex that is Old Navy this weekend.

First there were these flats!
I fell in love with the tan ones, 
they reminded me so much of Loeffler Randall- Natalie Polka Dot flats, but with a price tag of $23 not $230!
It took everything in me not to buy all three colors!
But I did also pick up the grey ones for my sister! 

Speaking of dupes, 
the pattern on these flats reminded me of the new loafers from Ann Taylor
but for a fraction of the price!

I also fell in love with this fox with glasses sweater!
I tried to talk myself out of it but was unsuccessful 

& Since the tops at Old Navy are currently buy one get one 50% off I went on the hunt for the other score for my fall wardrobe. 
This sequin shoulder number was the perfect other half, but with one problem- 
the mannequin was the only one I could find in the whole store.

I enlisted help and he went to town taking the sweater off the mannequin,
which included removing her arms. 
But it was my size & I love it. 
It was all worth it

You will be seeing this fox sweater & polka dot flats in an outfit post very soon,
too perfect together!
I also took home a pair of white shorts & black & white shorts for just $8 a pair! 
Now is the time to prep for spring {wishful thinking I know}
but those will also be perfect for next summer! 

I also fell in love with this porcupine/hedgehog ring!
{Say hello to my perfect fall mani- Revlon Moon Candy- 230 Satellite- saw it on Elle Sees instagram & I needed it- looks like fall leaves!}

On the check out line I also found this Hello Kitty iPhone case & new pencil case!
I did purchase a Hello Kitty case already for my new phone {see post here} but it was HUGE, 
& left all my pictures with a strange white border.
Was not working for me.
So I was happy to find this perfectly nerdy version!

Before I left the mall, 
I had to spend my $10 birthday card from Victoria Secret!
I have wanted this polish {called "Start the Party"} for a little while now,
the woman was like, "Polishes are 1 for $10 or 2 for $15- you are going to spend $10 on 1?" 
I said, "Yup, that is all I want." 
but in reality I was thinking, "Girl I am not paying anything this is my birthday present!"
Perfect black glitter for fall/holiday season!
One of my best kept secrets- even though you might have figured it out for yourself- 
when Victoria's Secret sends you $10 off a purchase- its like $10 free dollars! 
Pick up some perfume, free makeup, or polish!

My favorites! 

What are you excited for with the arrival of fall?
