Today is the BIG day, ya’ll!  It’s the FIRST day of PSL season!  (What’s a PSL, you say?  UM…..It’s a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks)!  Being I am one of the most BASIC mamas you will ever meet, I pretty much plan my whole year around Starbucks’ drink releases.  (PSLs in fall, Red Cups in winter, Pink Drinks in spring-summer).

downloadIt is still over 100 degrees here in Columbia, South Carolina – but I’m channeling all the fall vibes! I pulled out the fall decor from the attic and garage yesterday afternoon and started burning the fall candles. (Yes, I still have some left over from last years’ sales.)93A217D9-CF7B-4197-9B52-FF7933BF1705








I have even tossed a few new tops in my rotation just for the occasion and they are all under $20 and PERFECT for the season!

Time and Tru Woven Plaid Shirt $13.94  

I  am OBSESSED with this shirt.  And it comes in a ton of colors!  It’s soft, lightweight, and perfect for layering!!!!  I snatched up THIS one, but also love it in the cream color!

AMAZON – Women’s Striped 3/4 Bell Sleeve Off The Shoulder Front Tie Knot Top $18.99

I was SHOCKED at how cute this top was on!  High quality and draped so nicely!  Perfect for jeans (blue or black) and some cute booties!  And because of the details – it is all you need! I got it in the yellow, but it comes in several others!

Old Navy Luxe Long & Lean Striped Tunic $13.79 (on sale thru 8/29)

I saw this in store and it was so soft that I wanted to wear it right out of the store (after purchasing it, of course). I love the length of this and because Old Navy is having 40% off everything online, I ended up ordering it!  I am digging the olive stripe because I forsee it being layered under my utility vest with leggings or skinny jeans! It’s long enough to be over the booty and since it’s so neutral, I plan to rock it with a scarf or statement necklace!


Old Navy Slim-Fit Rib Knit Henley $11.49 (on sale thru 8/29)

Again – this one was sighted in store and I loved it because it was 3/4 sleeved so perfect for when you live in a place that it doesn’t get cool until November. I LOVE this green shade – perfect for under a camel jacket or a black leather jacket!  Plus – BONUS – it’s nursing friendly for all my mamas!


Amazon – Open Cardi Vest $19.99

I almost didn’t include this one because it’s not really a top – but it’s too good not to mention because you know how I feel about layering – SEE this POST.  I got the black one, but I am also debating the mocha shade!  It’s a knit-cotton fabric, comes with pockets (WIN!!!), and is a great option for tossing over any outfit!


So, which one is YOUR must-have?  Or dare you snag all five?  🙂 Comment below with what you think!


xoxo, Brandi’
