Saying bye to summer is always bittersweet, but I’m looking forward to a new season. September feels like a fresh start, and what better way to kick it off than by shopping for it? From one-and-done dresses to the handbag I’m eyeing, read on for a peek at what’s on my shopping list this month.

These high-waisted Nili Lotan jeans are a new favorite in my closet. With patch pockets and a subtle ankle flare (read: perfect for those of us who were not blessed with super long legs), they have a vintage vibe about them that I love. The longer length is ideal for boot season.
It will be a minute (read: 6-ish weeks if we’re lucky) before the Texas temperatures deem it sweater weather, but that won’t stop me from shopping for it. The good ones go fast, after all. Cos always does me right in the cashmere department. They’re deliciously soft (not itchy!) and the quality is that of something much, much more expensive.
Ballet flats are my go-to when it comes to footwear, and while I rarely veer from Chanel (the best), I’m happy to throw in a wild card every now and then. I love Mango’s take on a fancy flat. They’re comfortable (that’s key!), and I love that I can wear them with an LBD or – more often – a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. Bonus: they’re $100.
Time to restock! This highlighter is the hero of my makeup lineup. It delivers just the right amount of warmth (read: bronze, but not too bronze), giving my skin that sun-kissed glow my pale skin so needs.
