It’s getting quite chilly in Nashville TN, and I realized that I didn’t bring any fall sweaters with me during our summer move! I hopped over to my favorite place to shop on a dime– Buffalo Exchange– and got three beautiful high quality sweaters for under $50. Reusing some wardrobe staples from the last 5 years, this was all-together a great way to thrift my way to a cozy fall wardrobe.
I really do love a good cable knit. Today it’s pretty warm, so I’ve been wearing my summer high-waisted shorts with over the knee socks and scrunch-boots from Target. This creamy knit look gives me real Oxford in the fall vibes, taking me back to younger days when I dreamed about attending an Ivy League school. I’m so glad my dreams have evolved, and though there’s no way I’d be attending Harvard any time soon, I can still dress like it.
Off-the-shoulder knit and bell-bottom jeans? Yes please.
I couldn’t believe it when I saw these jeans on sale for $19 at my local Blush Boutique in Nashville. I snagged this twist back off the shoulder knit sweater from Fashionnova for also $20, making this an incredible fall outfit for under $50.
My first-ever cowboy hat was this dusty short-brimmed Stetson that carries effortless bohemian vibes with an understated western flare. With the bell-bottoms and hat, I can create a serene 70’s aesthetic under $20.
I believe I’ve said it before, but I’m obsessed with rust this season. For some reason, I’ve neglected orange-tones most of my life, which I’m realizing is insane since it’s what I look the best in! I saw this beautiful Madewell sweater for $25 at Buffalo Exchange and knew I had to have it. I had been looking at $50+ Madewell sweaters all week and knew this was an amazing deal from the softness and details of the sweater.
A checked blazer always adds a level of sophistication and dimension to a bold solid color, and is of course a great way to layer up for colder nights.
This look just gives me such vintage vibes.
I think it has something to do with the cropped ballooning shape of the sweater’s torso and sleeves, but I feel so 1930’s in this look. Paired with my old-faithful Topshop jeans I’ve kept over years, and my old-trusty Free People hat I’ve had forever, this $10 thrifted sweater from Buffalo Exchange looks like a million bucks.
I hope you all enjoyed my little budget-friendly sweater weather guide for fall! While I love soft autumn colors, I am excited to be moving into darker and more dramatic styles in the next coming weeks. So stay tuned!
