Fall basics are basically my favorite thing. Maybe that’s why I’m so in love with the fall season, who knows. Anyway each year I take to my favorite budget friendly retailers to search for some basic, budget friendly sweaters to fill my closet. And this year I’m pretty sure I hit the jackpot!
Back in August I opted to get an Old Navy gift card instead of my regular check from Ebates. It was only $25 but with the great sales that Old Navy has been having I knew I could make it last. And besides, every little bit helps me to stay on my shopping budget! I started searching the site weekly for new fall arrivals to see what goodies I could find.
And I found some goooood stuff, my friends! I love a good oversized top and ended up finding three that are absolutely perfect for the fall transition. Better yet- they’ll be equally amazing to layer up when it gets cooler outside. And as an extra special bonus they are machine washable! There’s nothing I hate more than dragging all my sweaters to the dry cleaners.
I fell head over heels in love with this wine colored beauty as soon as it arrived. Can you believe its only $20?! It’s TTS, perfectly oversized and comes in so many great fall colors. I’d consider it more of a thick t-shirt than a sweater, but who am I to judge? The single chest pocket adds a bit more of a casual flare and it’s long enough to wear with leggings. Trust me- it’s the best!
I ended up pairing it with another berry colored item- this chunky scarf. I loved the idea of mixing different red berry tones for fall. I love mixing berries to eat so why not to wear?! And honestly, if black/brown combo is acceptable, and pink/red is acceptable too- why not mix two berry tones! I’m loving the combo but my sister wasn’t really feeling. So I need you to weigh in on the look in the comments!
But the moral of this story is not to be afraid to play around with colors and prints! You never know what will end up working. The start of a new season is the perfect time to try some new things.
