A big thank you to my friends at Necessary Clothing for providing me with a mini shopping spree for myself. While I received free product for this post, no other compensation was provided. All opinions expressed below are my very own. :)
Okay, you all... I am going to let you all in on a little secret.
Food bloggers (or predominantly food bloggers, like myself) do not spend all day in super cute aprons, covered in flour.
Many of us food bloggers like clothes. Many of us love fashion. And I happen to be of both camps.
But while I love keeping up with the latest trends while still maintaining my personal sense of style, I do not like spending an arm and leg to get the newest looks. I love to look good and put together, but I don't want to blow my budget on expensive clothing.
So, I have to say that I was beyond thrilled when Necessary Clothing contacted me about reviewing a few pieces from their site!
After perusing their site, I was sold. ;) Friends, we are talking trendy pieces from a chic New York City boutique that you can purchase online and that are completely budget friendly. And they seem to always be getting new pieces up on the site!
I decided on a few of their pieces that would make the perfect fashion transition from late summer to fall. After all, I want to get the most out of every piece of clothing that I purchase. I always look at an article of clothing as an investment for this season, next season; this year, and the year after...
I just love this Splatter Shirt Dress (retails for $39.99) from Necessary Clothing! :) The lightweight material makes it perfect to wear alone for the lasting warmth of summer right now, but will transition right into the crisper weather of fall by adding a comfy cardi, some tights, and a cute pair of boots.
No fall wardrobe is complete without a comfy, over-sized sweater- Am I right? I knew that I had to have this Sebastian Pull Over Sweater (retails for $34.99)! Perfect right now paired with your favorite jean shorts. It has become my go-to sweater at the moment for cool evenings around the fire pit making s'mores. :) And it is a no-brainer how wonderful and cozy this sweater will be as we transition into fall and then snowy winter.
Necessary Clothing's Keep It Simple Blouse (retails for $27.99) just may be my favorite piece of the whole lot. There really is nothing like a simple blouse in a great color. (Although I will tell you that last I checked, this particular color was sold out. But they do have this blouse available in 4 other colors right now.) It can be worn out or tucked in; casually with jeans or dressed up with nice pants or a pencil skirt. You could even belt to give it a more polished look.
What is your go-to piece of clothing to transition from summer to fall fashion with?
