Fall Purchases + My New Favorites

Hey hey hey!
I've been shopping a litttttle too frequently lately and have been acquiring a lot of new pieces for the fall. I thought I'd share what I've gotten lately - let me know on my twitter (@collegehockeygf) if you've purchased any clothes for fall too! I can't be the only one who becomes fall obsessed in the middle of July ;)

I'll start with my Nordstrom anniversary sale purchases! I ended up grabbing this sweater in salmon pink. I ordered it a size up (size small) so it would be a little big on me, perfect for a chilly hockey rink! The sweater has a V back which I think is such a cute little twist on a comfy sweater. 

I also purchased these Articles of Society jeans in black from Nordstrom. 
I'm obsessed with them and am counting down the days until I can pair them with my new favorite booties. Which brings me to my next purchase… these booties. I've been on the hunt for an inexpensive pair of booties that I can wear to the bars and hockey house parties andddd I'm in love.

Moving on! I recently purchased this necklace from BaubleBar and I haven't taken it off since. I highly recommend BaubleBar - the packaging for the necklace was too cute.
Next up is a bit of a surprising pick but I've already worn it twice since receiving it in the mail five days ago. This dress from A&F of all places and it's my new favorite. Super comfy and made of a really soft material, I'm sold. It's taken major restraint for me to not order it in orange too. Tip: make a side knot at the bottom of the dress to avoid looking shapeless. 

I also purchased this T-shirt dress from Urban Outfitters. Can you tell I've been loving t-shirt dresses lately?? So comfy. Warning - runs a little big! Since they only had size small left at my local Urban I'll be tying a side knot so it doesn't look like I'm swimming in a tee! 

Lastly I purchased this long sleeve dress from Forever 21. I think it will be perfect for fall and I can't wait to wear it! It comes in three different colors and is made of a super soft material. The dress is an absolute STEAL for only $14.90

That's all I have for now! Thanks for reading:) look out for a post about my Fall wish list soon! The shopping never ends.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites

Hello hello hello! It's only been about a million years since I've made a blog post, so what better way to resurrect this blog than by talking about my favorite place in the entire world?? Oh yes, I'm going into detail about my favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The Anniversary Sale is the BEST sale of the year because it features their fall must have pieces and other coveted pieces all on sale for a limited time! 

The sale officially begins in three short days buuut if you have a Nordstrom card you can begin shopping during the early access sale. I've collected a few favorites that I've been obsessing over since the early access sale began. Goooodbye paycheck, and hello fall clothing/accessories obsession.

I have just about a million favorites but I'll start off with accessories and make my way to the clothes after.

First off I'm absolutely in love with this Tory Burch 'Plaque' Zip Continental Wallet. I've been on the hunt for a nice tan/brown/whatever color 'bark' is for a few months now. What better way to begin my JUNIOR year of college than with a new Tory Burch wallet? 
Next up is this Kendra Scott necklace. For Christmas my favorite boy bought me Kendra Scott 'Danielle' earrings and I've been dying to add to my collection ever since. The 'Dylan' stone pendant necklace is the perfect addition for layering necklaces this summer and fall.
My last accessory pick is probably my favorite. I love a good bootie and these are my absolute favorite. They come in a variety of colors but I think I'll probably end up snatching these beauties. Perfect for fall and for hockey season as well!

Time to move on to my favorite paycheck ruiner: clothes clothes clothes.

I am loving trendy little pieces lately. I'm finally straying from my preppy roots and have been gravitating towards more flowy, trendy pieces and I don't really mind at all. 

This Leith Crepe Trapeze Dress in 'Burgundy Stem' is to die for. Perfect for warm fall days and day drinks ;) 

I've been loving Topshop lately. Slowly but surely becoming one of my favorite brands. Seriously who am I and where did my preppy ways go?? College hockey girlfriend is growing up, folks. These jeans need to be in closet asap. 

You can also shop specific outfits during the Anniversary Sale. I'm thinking this entire outfit needs to be mine sooner rather than later.

Hope you all enjoyed my favorite picks!! Let me know what you guys will be purchasing, I love a good sale!
