The BAF Weekly IT List is here! This week was the first official week of fall, and I am here for it! The nights are a little bit cooler, pumpkin spice everything is on store shelves, and we can all walk around in our fall clothing without feeling out of season. Loving fall! Now, if temperatures can just stay low, and NOT go into the 90’s next week as predicted, the beginning of fall would be perfect. Fingers crossed!

Now, let’s chat about this week’s five IT items! This blue sweater is absolutely amazing. I am waiting for cooler weather so I can wear mine all the time. It comes in other colors too; so pretty! It’s the perfect go-to pull-over for fall. Love!

None of us can get enough of these classic loafer slides for fall. This pair is priced under $150, so if you haven’t picked up a pair yet, what are you waiting for? Snap them up now!

If you haven’t updated your nails for the fall season, do it now! This is my favorite nail polish hue of the season, and it’s a classic! You can wear it now and well into the holiday season. Love that!

Are you a Fiestaware fan? I recently became one. This cute little square jam jar is a limited edition Fiestaware piece, and it’s on major sale right now! Snap one up in your choice of color ASAP before they are gone! This would also make a great holiday gift if you have a Fiestaware fan, or colorful housewares fan, on your list. Can’t beat that price! I snapped one up in Turquoise, Lapis, and Mulberry. Love!

Lastly, this classic bucket bag is a must-have IT bag. If you don’t already own one, now is a great time to invest in one to wear now and forever. I love mine! It’s a total workhorse bag I can stuff multiple water bottles inside, as well as an entire cardigan sweater. It’s roomier than it appears; and very strong!!! Perfect when you have kids like me, or just need to carry a lot of stuff around.

Pouch Clutch | Designer or Deal?

Pouch Clutch at three price points, from top: Designer IT Bag / IT brand pouch clutch priced under $1000 (this is the one I own and I love it!) / affordable pouch clutch priced under $70 /

Thank you for all the great feedback last week on my new weekly series, designer or deal! This week I thought we would talk about the pouch clutch, which is a hot IT bag right now. There are so many versions out there, it’s hard to pick the right one! So, I thought I would show you the three best versions of the trend.

Of course, you can go for the pouch clutch that started it all; the Bottega Veneta pouch priced just under $3000. There is also the moderately priced version from Mansur Gavriel priced well under $1000. This clutch also has IT bag status on the street, so you can’t go wrong saving a few bucks with this one! I own the black with flamma interior version and I love it. It’s very comfortable to carry around, and it is quite roomy! Love that! Lastly, you can get a ton of bang for your buck with this pouch clutch priced under $70. It’s a great deal; especially if you want to rock the pouch clutch trend but don’t think you’ll wear it often. This is a great choice for occasional use.

What is your favorite item from the IT list? Will you rock a pouch clutch this season?

BAF Weekly IT List

popular fall fashion

BAF Weekly IT List from top left: patchwork jeans (under $40!) / black affordable loafer slides / fall nail polish / green and gold earrings / soft grey cardigan sweater /

Welcome to the 4th BAF Weekly IT List! I’m excited about this IT list because the spring 2021 runway shows just finished in New York. We got a glimpse of what is hot for the spring season; and what is not. This helps us make informed decisions about what we buy now; to last us through several seasons.

Spring 2021 is all about 1980s and 1990s influence. So these patchwork jeans for fall are also ideal to carry us through spring; and summer if the weather is cool enough for jeans. At under $40, they aren’t just a great investment for now into next year, they are a downright steal!

Loafer slides are a must-have every fall season. They are also a great spring shoe too. If you haven’t already invested in a pair of classic loafers, I recommend doing so now. If you scroll down, you can compare the designer IT version of loafer slides, with an affordable version I highly recommend.

This fall nail polish by Chanel continues to be a hot seller, and a must-have for fall. It’s a classic dark red, and very chic. Love!

As the weather cools, we all need a soft and cozy cardigan sweater which can be worn around the house, as well as out in the real world. If you are spending a ton of time at home, as I am, this is the ideal sweater for the season. It will carry you through fall, winter, and spring. Love it!

Lastly, remember I mentioned spring 2021? These green and gold fall earrings fit into the spring 2021 color trends. This is an easy way to add a bright spring hue to a dreary fall or winter day. Plus, they can be worn next spring and summer. These are classic earrings and an easy way to stay ahead of the trends. You know I love staying ahead of the trend curve!

Now, I am adding to the BAF Weekly IT List! Every Friday, look for a designer or deal product of the week. This week I am kicking off the series with the must-have classic loafer slide! Read on. . .

Classic loafer slides | designer or deal

Classic Loafer Slides designer or deal: Popular IT shoes, Gucci loafer slides / affordable loafer slides priced under $150 /

I have owned the Gucci loafer slides for several years now. They are extremely comfortable, and can be paired with almost any outfit. My loafer slides are my go-to shoes every fall and spring. I even wear them on warm winter days, and cool summer days. They go with everything! Since fall is trending towards preppy and timeless vibes, these are a great shoe to invest in now, and wear for years.

You can splurge on the Gucci pair, or go for a more affordable pair under $150. The affordable pair is comfortable and offers good quality. So you should enjoy longevity out of them.

Let me know what you think of this new series! I hope you love it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to the third BAF Weekly IT List for the fall season! Since it is after labor day, this is a great time to snap up fall cosmetics such as fall nail polish and lipstick. I am featuring a top coat and base coat this week because a proper home manicure is a must! I swear by this base coat and top coat. I have been using this base coat since the 1990s! It is amazing. Of course, this fabulous top coat keeps your manicure from chipping before your nails start to grow and show nail at the bottom. Love them!

These loafers are classic, and fit right into the current fall shoe trends. Stamped croc and classic loafers are all the rage for fall. Love this pair since they are classic, comfortable, and priced under $150. Love!

Destroyed denim is back, and these jeans under $40 offer a skinny look, with girlfriend jean comfort. They are turning into my current go-to jeans. Love!

Hair salons are opening back up! This means we are getting our color touched up and we need to preserve it. This shampoo and conditioner is fabulous for adding moisture and preserving color. I am in love!

I hope you love these fall must-haves as much as I do! Enjoy the weekend, and stay fabulous 😉
