5 Pieces for Under $150 {What I Bought}

Am I the only one that wants to completely update my wardrobe with each and every new season?   I'm thinking probably not, I'm thinking it's probably a girl thing ;)  Unfortunately, that can get quite pricey so usually I'll stick to buying a couple nicer, more versatile pieces that I can mix and match paired with a few trendier, less expensive pieces.  Luckily you don't have to spend a lot to stay on trend thanks to stores like H&M and Forever 21!

When we were out of town this past Friday, Nick had to work so I was left to entertain myself for the day.  First stop: the mall, no surprise there!  Within minutes of walking into H&M, I wanted to take one of everything home, please and thank you.  Their new fall line is amazing!  I attempted to show some restraint and only purchased these five pieces, shared below - they're all very versatile, some might say basic, scream fall and the total came in under $150.  A great, inexpensive update to any wardrobe!


I'm having a love affair with this color right now and the rib knit pattern is so cozy.  I thought it ran a bit on the small side so I sized up to a 'small' - I like my sweaters looser/baggier though.  It comes in 4 different colors, too!


Plaid is here to stay, there's no doubt about that.  I love this print because it's really reminiscent of the infamous Zara blanket scarf.  The shirt is 100% cotton making it super soft and for this price, the teal checked version will most likely be mine next.  

You guys.  I can't tell you how many ponchos I've tried on in the last couple of months in an attempt to find one that fits my short 5'3" frame.  They've all swallowed me up - except for this one finally! The color is prettier in person and it'll look so cute with a floppy hat (I have this one) or just literally anything.  I love it.

Faux Fur Vest
After missing out on the popular Topshop fur vest during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I was determined to find a cheaper alternative this fall.  Welp, thank you H&M for this dead ringer and for it being 1/3 the price.  

Jacquard Weave Skirt
I feel like skirts are so 'in' right now and I love the pattern on this one.  I may or may not have plans to wear it this weekend with the rust red sweater ;)  I'm lusting over the beige striped version as well.

Pretty great, especially for the price right?  Only thing missing from the list is a fabulous pair of distressed jeans and booties and then you're totally on point for this season!  Fall fashion is the best!

  2. You're definitely not the only one who wants a whole new update every season! Luckily this time of year there are all kinds of sales so you can get some awesome stuff for less. Love a lot of what you found at H&M! :)

  5. I love H&M! They finally opened one in Oklahoma (just 5 minutes from my house), but I have been avoiding it because I know I can do some damage. Haha

  10. I am exactly the same, an expensive habit! I love the poncho, I'm not sure I can pull it off, I'm even shorter than you! But it just may be worth a shot.

  12. I can't believe all of these for the price! The best part is you can mix and match them together and layer them!

  13. I need to find a poncho! I have a lot of sleeveless dresses that I need to figure out how to transition into fall. A poncho or oversized vest seems like the way to go.

  17. The H&M in my mall is a cluster, I don't think they know how to fold in there. I am very happy I can shop online with them and have you to pick all the great finds for the Fall for me ;-)
