October Money Well Spent

Another Money Well Spent is in order for today's post! If you're a new reader, Money Well Spent is a post ("series" if you will) I do each month that includes items I think are worth the splurge. Overtime, I'm hoping you can build your perfect wardrobe with everything that is totally necessary.

Be sure to view previous months to get some more ideas!
Now onto October's.

One of the first things I purchased from J.Crew, around four years ago, was a khaki green excursion vest and I've been in love with vests ever since. I chose puffer vests for this month because to me, fall is all about layers. A gingham shirt, a sweater over top, a vest, jeans and some riding boots are the epitome of fall. If you want to see more outfit options with my vests, read my old post here.

If you're having one of those days when you just want to wear leggings but still want to look decent, these pants are for you. They're a thicker material than leggings and have a more professional look. They have a zipper along the back too which is a nice added element. Wear them with your favorite comfy sweater or a chambray button down.

I've had my L.L. Bean duck boots for about two years now and they still look brand new. They're great for chilly days but also for when the snow comes. They're more versatile than people may think; tons of outfit options if you search them on Pinterest! 
Here's both the vest and these boots in action:


Until next month's MWS.
