To me, the end of August and beginning of fall means new beginnings more than New Years Eve does. For so many years, August was a new school year – a chance for new notebooks, pencils, binders, folders… and of course, new clothes.
I’m technically still a student, but even if I wasn’t, I’m pretty sure I’d still think this way. There’s just something about summer winding down that makes me want to make lists and plans and start things fresh.
And it also makes me want to shop. I’ve been trying to cut back a little bit on my online shopping the last month or two, but I have picked up a few things to start my fall semester with! I’m sharing those, and some other favorites, below. I’ve been really into (faux) leather skirts lately, so there’s a few of those, plus a nice mix of things to wear now, and things to wear when the weather cools down.
Plus, Sephora is having one of their VIB sales, which are definitely worth taking advantage of. VIB Rouge members have 20% off, and access to the sale now, and VIB members will get 15% off and access next week. That might not sound like a lot, but most of these things are things that you’d be buying anyway, so now is the time to stock up on anything that you’ve been wanting. I’m sharing my standard favorites, plus a few fun things that I have my eye on.
