This past weekend was a BLAST going to see Twenty-One Pilots' Bandito tour up with my fam in Sacramento! I definitely wouldn't describe my style as punk or rock, but I wanted to dress up for the concert without spending too much. I've been loving the combat boot trend this fall (I love the Chanel ones but they are $$$!) however I really didn't want to invest in an item that is considered "trendy" vs a wardrobe staple. In comes trusty Target to save the day!
I found this pair at Target from their Universal Thread brand for under $35! I danced all night and they were SO comfy. No rubbing or blisters! I've found some higher boots can rub at the top around the ankle/calf, but not these. I'm between an 8.5/8 and went with a size 8 which fit perfect. I wanted them a little tighter so they are not so bulky. Now through the 9th of November ALL boots from Target are BOGO 50%! My mom and I actually both got boots so we got the great deal! You can shop directly by clicking the photo of the boots below!
You know that pair of jeans that makes you feel good + look great? These are those jeans for me! I've been loving the exposed button fly look (so retro!) but I also need a high rise, skinny silhouette because I think it is such a flattering look. I was so excited to find these on the thrift racks in my size recently!
It took months to find these jeans in my size, so I've linked below a number of similar pairs that are on super sale! Those Madewell jeans have a fun exposed hem detail, and are half off! It is so hard to find simple, classic Madewell jeans on sale, plus they have them in stock in all sizes!

Yesterday I was walking through downtown San Francisco when I popped into Banana Republic to glance through clearance. I was shocked to find these adorable pendant letter necklaces for under $10! (plus I used my BR card so I got an extra 10% off!) These are so in right now! They are perfect for your own initial, or maybe your spouses or kids. I got super lucky because the store I was in only had the "S" and "E" letters, but there are a lot more available online! They are final sale, so make sure to scoop up your letter now before they sell out! You can shop directly below by just clicking on the picture!
Anthropologie is known for being the mecca of boho chic outfits and home decor, and I'm sure I'm not the only one that walks through that store pretending I live there, right?? Well, right now you can stock up on all the boho your heart desires/can handle because they are currently having their 50% off clearance sale this weekend!
I picked up this adorable flutter sweater tank for only $25! I don't buy a lot of new, retail pieces, but this one was just made so well and is so versatile. Plus it was originally $90, so I don't even think I could've found this top used online for this good of a deal! They have a couple colors too. The sizes are selling out fast this weekend so make sure to pick one up if you are loving it! It is true to size, and I am wearing a small. You can shop this top and the rest of the sale by clicking the stock photo below! There were so many great pieces at total steals (Anthropologie dresses for under $50, like what?!) so make sure to pick up what you love before the sale ends tomorrow!
If you follow any blogger whatsoever, you will know the Nordstrom Anniversary N Sale has been going on the past few weeks for Nordstrom credit card holders. Ya girl does not have an Nordstrom card (WAY too dangerous!) so when the sale opened up to everyone yesterday I went in to see what they still have in stock, what I think is actually a good deal, and what I overall think are good pieces to pick up!
I usually like to buy higher end or trendy pieces secondhand, but for classic wardrobe staples I think it is better to buy these new since you wear them often, so you will see a lot of wardrobe staple pieces below. You can shop everything by clicking directly on the pics. And remember Nordstrom has free returns + shipping!
