If I Had $1,000 to Blow · August 2019

A new month means a new IIH$1K!!! I love this series as it lets me window shop, while giving you a glimpse at what I myself want to add to my closet (and what I wish I could be wearing in some instas for you!) Alas, my budget is tight as I prep for NYFW and some other travels, so for now, this will be the only place you see these items 🙂

To shop this image, click on the item you’re interested in to be directed to the retailer’s website.

Noticeable trends this month that I would love to buy into:

  • embellishments on EVERYTHING
  • pattern mixing
  • statement jewelry
  • fall colors

August is the in-between month. Target has out pumpkins… but it’s still 90 degrees. Should we be partying it up in summer… or preparing for fall?? My answer: both. I think getting transitional pieces in August is the smartest thing you can do. Buy things you can wear now, but also wear fully into fall.

A full roundup of all items below – hope you enjoy!!

  1. I love all of your picks especially the studded mules! It really is a strange time because you want to start prepping for fall but also want to soak up all of the sun!
