We have a girl crush. There. It’s out there. It started when we happened upon Perfectly Disheveled, which we instantly deemed worthy of our exclusive blogroll. (Style inspiration? Tips on entertaining? DIYs for the home? What more could we want?) When we delved a bit deeper, we discovered the brains behind the whole operation: mom-slash-blogger-slash-hostess-with-the-mostest (We could go on!) Jennifer Brandt.
Enter obsession #1: Figuring out how she does it all. An even bigger obsession? Her effortless style.
Super-inspired, we decided to track her down—and asked all about what she’ll be buying for fall. Not only did she give us her must-have list, but she documented her shopping trip and even sent pics. (We would have expected nothing less!) Check it out.
“With fall fashion fresh on my mind, I headed to my local Sears bright and early. Ultimately, I settled on a few fantastic looks that I know will carry me throughout the season. I got four completely-new, head-to-toe outfits (seven pieces of clothing), and I spent a total of $136.13. (‘Saved 22.04 with [Shop Your Way] Rewards, thank you very much!) Not bad, right!? Paired with booties, fun bags and crossbody purses, I can dress all of these looks up, down and everything in between.”
