Pretty Fix: The August List

The Pretty Fix is a monthly feature at Get Your Pretty On that features my top five picks for the month that you can shop for on your own to stay in style at a price you’ll love. The idea for it was born out of frustration that some of you have had with other monthly box services that you feel “miss the mark” or are too pricey.

Each month, the Pretty Fix includes five affordable items that I personally recommend to stay on trend.  Transitional style is the buzz word this month.  For this month’s pretty fix, I’m sharing some of my favorite ways to transition into fall.

Want to know the best part? You can buy everything in the monthly fix for under $100!

Consider me your budget-minded personal shopper. Here’s your August Pretty Fix.



1. Floral Print Scarf – $10.95

My transitional style always includes a pretty floral scarf for fall.  This one comes in six different colors.  You’re going to want more than one.

2. Open Knit Cardigan – $34

Open knit cardigans add just the right amount of warmth on a chilly morning.

3. 3/4 Sleeve T-Shirt – $15.99

Pre-season is a great time to stock up on basics like solid colored tees.

4. Cut Out “Shootie” – $22.38

Not quite summer and not quite fall, peep toe booties are the perfect transition footwear.

5. OPI Nail Lacquer in “Dulce de Leche” – $9.50

It’s a little too early for dark colored polish.  This dusty pinkish neutral is just right for this time of the year.

    Love the picks for August! Just ordered the boots and nail polish!

    • I can’t wait to see pictures!

  • I love the shootie……..this fall I have a loooong list of things I want to add, most of it are turtleneck pieces or anything in oxblood or plaid. Can’t wait to start shopping.

    • Sounds like a wonderful shopping list Deena.

  • Jennifer

    love this, I am new to GYPO, just ordered all but the polish, I already have that! PS I hate shopping and have the same dress in 4 colors, all I have worn this summer, so glad I found you!! I needed help……………

    • So glad you found GYPO, Jennifer. I look forward to having you visit often.

  • This is such a great alternative to the “boxes.” YOu can customize it exactly how you want 🙂 Loving those peep toe booties…i’ve been looking for a pair for awhile! XO

    • It’s so fun to pick and choose. 😉

  • Marla

    Ooooooh!!! I love the teal color those shooties come in!! I may have to have those! Look forward to this post each month!!!

    • Can’t wait for next month Marla!

  • Carrie

    Love the line-up! Thank you so much for helping the fashion-challenged like myself! Have you seen any boots like that with no heel or should I sub peep toe flats? My ankle is not loving heels these days 🙁

    • I’ve seen them with a wedge. Do you wear wedges Carrie?

      • Carrie

        I don’t even want to try them until my ankle heals a little more! It’s probably going to be a few more months before I will be able to wear anything like that! Maybe I’ll just have to wait it out 😐

        • Feel better ankle!!

          • Carrie

            Thanks! 🙂

  • Debbie

    Love the pieces and have ordered the shoes and scarves (my closet has the other two)! Can you give us some ideas on how to pair them to make th transition from cool to warmer? Thanks! Xoxoxo

    • Thanks for the suggestion Debbie.

  • Phyllis Comstock

    Perfect suggestions for late summer! Love!

    • I’m so glad you love it Phyllis.

  • Sue

    As always you have addressed a timely topic..what to wear transitioning into fall. Thank you Alison! I’ve already purchased the scarf and top, and can’t wait to wear them!

  • Jeannine

    My shorties arrived love them! Thank you Alison I would have never selected them on my own. The scoop neck tee runs small, it’s a little thin, will need camisole underneath. I’m going to exchange for larger size.

    • Yay! I’m so glad you love them Jeannine.

  • LOVE these pieces! Can you show us a few ways to wear them (besides all at once)?

    • Thanks for the suggestion Rebecca. I’ll remember that for next month or a future post. 😉
