TOP ITEMS TO PURCHASE
BP Cocoon Cardigan
Left to Right- XS, Small, Large
FIT NOTES: I am LOVING that BP has a cocoon cardigan this year for the sale! You may remember the Leith one from last year (which is back too.) but this one is at an even better price point. The fit is TTS. I wear an XS in this style.

BP T Scoop Neck Long Sleeve T-Shirts
T Shirt BP

FIT NOTES:This thermal fits a bit small They are meant to layer, but if you are looking for a loose,easy fit, size up. The camo print one I would size up 2 sizes in. I am wearing an XS; .
Steve Madden Taupe Booties // Vince Camuto Pointed Toe Booties // Vince Camuto Grey Booties // ORDERED Steve Madden Perforated Booties
FIT NOTES: The booties this year are SO.GOOD. I couldn’t narrow them down to just one pair so I picked three different styles. All fit TTS.
Rebecca Minkoff Leopard Crossbody
BAG Rebecca Minkoff
FIT NOTES: Every year Rebecca Minkoff comes out with a cross body and this year it is LEOPARD! Hello! This cutie will sell out fast, so buy not, no regrets haha. I am in love with this year round bag.
