Monthly Shopping Guide: What to Buy in August

But it’s also a new month – and I just love the thrill of discovering chic and special finds. August brings the excitement of fall fashion as retailers showcase irresistible trends and layering pieces. While summer still reigns, this is the time that I hone in on versatile items that transition between seasons in order to maximize my wardrobe and budget. I’m talking breathable dresses that embody summer’s lightness and staple boots that embrace the upcoming autumn vibes. Ahead, I’m sharing 10 handpicked pieces to nail that style balance.
