Happy Friday! You guys, I know I say that I am so excited to bring you new posts every time-but I am really excited about today's! For the fall season, I have had my eye out on the trends pictured above. However, the problem with a big wish list (see my beauty wishlist here) is that your budget may not be big enough to accommodate everything! Or if you're anything like me, I always try to find a great deal before paying full price.

This grey houndstooth vest from J.Crew Factory is currently on sale for $55, you can get 15% off your entire purchase if you sign up for their email list. Full price has this at $108. When I was on Amazon looking at some other pieces, this steal of a vest was in the recommended items (I see you Amazon, I see you!) and I just had to have it at $30! The quality is great for the price and despite some minor differences you really couldn't tell the difference.

On instagram I saw flannel blanket scarfs everywhere but at $50 price tags. I don't know about you, but that seemed too high for a scarf. I purchased this scarf that comes in 13 other prints and colors too! The quality is great plus free 2 day shipping with Amazon prime makes the $16 price even sweeter. 

I haven't purchased any mesh leggings yet, but I think that these from Target at $35 are a pretty great dupe for the pricier ones at Nordstrom! Next paycheck I will probably buy these! At first I was hesitant about the mesh insert design of these leggings but after seeing the newer designs I love them!

In my earlier post about beauty items on my radar I featured this MAC palette that is sold exclusively at Nordstrom. After looking at my budget (purchasing your first home is expensive ya'll) it just wasn't happening, however I found a great dupe! I was watching one of my favorite beauty bloggers youtube channel and she featured this Make-Up Revolution Flawless 2 palette. I was so obsessed with the darker shimmery shades that I went the next day and bought it-so glad I did! The palette features 32 shades, the MAC one only has 15 and its literally a third of the price. The shades blend beautifully together and I highly reccommend it for the quality and price!

Lastly, I have switched out the CC creme for the L'Oreal Infalliable Matte Pro and I have loved the switch! I liked the coverage of the IT Cosmetics CC creme but the fact that comes in 5 shades limited my matches for skin tone. The one that chose was a little too dark for my skin tone. After seeing some great reviews on the L'Oreal formula I decided to try it-and I love it! Not only is the price great but the formula is super matte and is buildable! 

Thank you so much for reading, let me know if you have any questions about the products that I purchased send me a comment below!
