It’s officially the end of October, Halloween is just 2 days away, and I have not bought costumes for the littles. Usually I’m really good about getting costumes done a few weeks early but this year is a different story.
A couple weeks ago I ended up hitting a deer on the way back from bartending a wedding with a friend. So my car has been in the shop ever since and I don’t think it will be ready for at least another week. Then, on top of that, the hubby has literally been working non-stop the past few weeks so I’ve been stuck in the house, without a car to go anywhere.
I’m starting to lose my mind. Haha… not really but there has been a lot of online shopping going on since I can’t go anywhere. Which brings me to today’s October Finds post!
All of this stuff was purchased in anticipation for my trip to Napa that I went on at the beginning of the month. It was so beautiful and I cannot wait to go back.
Anyway, let’s get to it!
I bought this sweatshirt in August, actually, when I went to Traverse City for a little vacation with mom. I have been eyeing this sweater for years and finally pulled the trigger this year. I had a feeling this would be our last summer/fall up at the cabin because we are moving and I really wanted this sweater. It is so soft and I can see myself wearing this a lot this upcoming winter.
I ordered this at the same time that I ordered my first pair of Abercrombie jeans (below) and am in love. It is so soft and a great length to cover the bum. I have an obsession with cardigans and this one fits perfectly into my collection.
I fell in love with the Aerie bras from before and so I decided to buy some more in slightly different colors and cuts. The demi is by far my favorite of all the bras that they have and this one is smooth without the lace detail so it doesn’t show under satin or chiffon shirts.
Some days I just want a great nude bra and this one fits the bill perfectly. I can even wear it under my white Express tee without a cami and you cannot see it at all. Win win.
These Abercrombie jeans are life! I love, love, love them so much. They are so stretchy but have a mid-rise (even though they say low rise) so they hold in all the “trouble areas” that I think I have. However, they’re not stretchy enough to bag out in the bum so it makes you look like your jeans are too big. These are definitely my new favorite jeans.
I have been buying this brand of jeans since I found my first pair at TJ Maxx after having my 3rd baby. They are so soft and stretchy and they have an elastic waistband sewn into the inside. These are like my perfect postpartum jeans for the in-between stages but I have a feeling I’ll be buying more in smaller sizes when I lose more weight.
I actually bought this in Vegas in September but I just now found it online so I wanted to share it with you. I don’t really have many places to wear this but I love it and will find somewhere. I didn’t have a great faux leather midi skirt so it makes a great addition to my closet.
Faux leather leggings have been everywhere this season and I pulled the trigger and bought some. I couldn’t bring myself to get the SPANX ones (hello bargain shopper) so I found these on Amazon instead. I love them… they are true to size and they have a high waist so they suck you in where you need it.
The brown version of these are my absolute favorite shoe in my closet right now so it only made sense to buy the black pair. They are so comfortable and the faux leather upper is so soft it just molds to my feet. I have worn these all day running through an airport, on the plane, shopping in Napa, and my feet did not hurt at all at the end of the day.
There you have it! All my finds for October… did you find something you love this month?
