Let me be honest: the ONLY thing I like about fall is transitioning my wardrobe.
I’m into the layering, the warmer colors, the heavy outerwear, & the cozier vibes. Also, every outfit looks better when holding an hot to-go almond-milk-latte, in my humble opinion. That particular accessory just brings it all together.
At this time of year in LA, the weather is chilly in the morning & in the evening ( still allowing for my favorite afternoon mini dress, thankfully ), so we all bust out the outerwear at the beginning & end of the day. It’s the best of both worlds right now, getting two seasons at once.
I started my fall shopping online with Express, where I found tons of sweaters, fall skirts, jackets, booties, & more. This is no longer your Mom’s favorite workwear destination… Express is KILLING IT in terms of style options. The best part?? The price point is going to shock you.
On top of already-affordable prices, Express is having a MAJOR SALE in-store & online right now. Okay, and don’t freak out too much, but ALSO, if you head into an Express store near you & try on some fall faves, you can get $25 off purchases $100+ using code 2002 ( Terms & Conditions Apply ). My special code will be valid 10/1-11/15.
So, remember that the next time you find yourself at the mall. BELIEVE ME, you’re going to love their fall options.
Shop My Express Outfit
So I centered this particular outfit around a plaid a-line mini from Express, styling it with a ribbed turtleneck sweater ( an absolute STAPLE for fall/winter, you need one of these in your wardrobe ). Both are on sale right now. If you’re looking to grab this skirt, I recommend sizing down ( it would be cute with over-knee boots, too ).
To add an edge to an otherwise ladylike look, I threw on a moto jacket. Express has a number of options when it comes to moto jackets, so I recommend going through my product slider above to find the perfect one for you!
& Other Options I’m Loving from Express Right Now
Trust me, if you’re looking to start your fall shopping on a reasonable budget, you’ve gotta start at Express. I wouldn’t be so pumped about this if it weren’t true.
I’ll be wearing my Express items ( particularly this turtleneck & a few pullovers I picked up, linked above ) for the next few months, as you’ll see via social media. I’m totally IN.
Let me know if y’all pick up anything in-store or online via Snapchat (payton_sartain) or Instagram! I live for your styling/outfit snaps.
Now, I’m off to get a much-needed spray tan ( hiding from the sun began early for me this year ) & an almond milk latte from Alfred ( because that seems necessary ).
Have a good weekend, friends! Happy shopping! x
