Allie’s Top 5: October

This month, I’m starting a new post series on AFA. Every month, I’ll share the top five must-haves that are on my shopping list. Hope you enjoy!

laurence dacade star print boots
1. Star print booties. Also, star print backpack.

This trending print is a lot of fun, but also subtle and versatile, especially in black.

bcbg abygail pinstripe dress
2. This BCBG pinstripe dress

Office-appropriate or date night worthy? With a cut-out back, it’s both. Just add a blazer for work.

express lace up sweater tank
3. Tank top sweater

I love the look of sweaters, but I’m always too hot indoors when I wear them. Tank sweaters solve my issue, and maybe yours too?

target woven throw blanket
4. Woven throw blanket in very fall-like colors (from Target!)

This $25 blanket instantly made my couch feel more festive and it’s surprisingly soft.


Lancôme Color Design Lipstick fashion icon
5. Lancôme Color Design Lipstick in Fashion Icon

This plum shade is the color of the season and what more noncommittal way to test it out than with a lipstick. This Lancôme one goes on a lot lighter than it appears – a very wearable blend of red and purple – and has the perfect amount of shimmer and shine.
