wait- I wish I could afford all the nice brands but reality is at this point in my life I cannot. very few items in my closet are splurges- mostly shoes and a couple clothing pieces. I’d say 50% is thrifted/vintage and the other 50 is a mix from Zara and the like.
I don’t online shop much but a few more affordable sites are Everlane, COS (finally launched US site!), Aritzia, and dude, eBay!
hope that helps. good luck!
OH. well, while on vacation for two weeks where it was avg 90 degrees the entire time- I lived in denim skirts, basic stripe tees, espadrilles, saltwater sandals, loose linen tanks, and vintage cropped Levi’s. so I’m saying that.
fall? much more fun, style-wise. first things I think of are thick-knit sweaters, wool coat and/or leather jacket, black trouser, cozy socks, loafers or sneaks, hat of choice. layers. neutrals.
ya feel? I hope that was remotely close to answering your question
