Hey pretties! It’s time for another Pretty Fix but first a quick story behind this month’s inspiration. Craig and I just got back from a little getaway to Mexico last week. I had some business meetings there and we tacked on a few extra days for some R&R. Here’s a pic of us before dinner one night.
As we were walking through the Cancun airport on our way home, Craig spied a colorful Mexican poncho and joked that he was going to buy one. My first thought was that it could be great for fall – just not on him!
So, of course when I got home, I started researching ponchos to find one for this month’s Pretty Fix.
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.
Want to know the best part? You can buy everything in the monthly fix for around $100.
Consider me your budget-minded personal shopper. Here’s your October Pretty Fix.
OCTOBER PRETTY FIX TOTAL = $96.88
1. Poncho – $16
So it’s not exactly colorful like the Mexican versions but this one is really versatile. Ponchos and wraps are my favorite way to add a layer of warmth when it’s not quite cold enough for a coat. If you’re looking for more color, here’s another option.
2. Burgundy Satchel – $29.99
There’s a good reason why a burgundy purse is on the shopping list for the Fall 2015 GYPO Style Challenge. It looks great with everything! If burgundy is not your thing, this bag comes in six other colors including red, black, brown, coffee, beige and olive green.
3. Printed Socks – $5
We’re heading into the time of the year where bare ankles need some cozy socks. Printed pairs are perfect for peeking out above your favorite ankle boots. This five pack has some great colors/patterns.
4. Gray Jeans – $32
Gray jeans are a neutral that you’re going to love for fall. Pair them up with Marsala, Pantone’s color of the year to be totally on trend.
5. Berry Lip Gloss – $5.89
If heavy lipsticks aren’t your thing, color your pout with this lightweight translucent gel lip color in this season’s hottest color.
