If you've followed my blog for any amount of time, you know that my favorites don't change a lot from year to year. I tend to favor basic, classic pieces that offer a lot of versatility in styling options. Here's a recap on some of those key pieces I reach for year after year, along with a variety of ways I've worn them for different weather and different occasions. (I'm only linking to pieces that are currently available as of posting time. Sources are listed for all items but if it's not linked it's no longer available online.)

Each of these next two tops have been in my closet less than a year so I consider them "new" favorites. But they're perfect for transition weather and fall.

Top: Express | Tank: Target | Jeans: Express | Sandals: Forever 21 | Bag: Amazon

One of the things on my wishlist for this sale is another color of the Oversized Plaid top (from Outfit One), possibly one of these. Right now I'm leaning toward turquoise, but it's hard to decide!
Express has good sales on Jeans and Tops fairly often, but there aren't nearly as many opportunities to get Jackets on sale, so that is one of the first categories I like to shop when there's a storewide sale. A couple of my favorites from Express are Military Jackets and (Minus) the Leather Jackets:
Jacket: Express (Current Version) | Tee: Old Navy | Belt: Gap | Sandals: Express
Jacket: Express (Current Version) | Dress: Express | Necklace: Bloomgindales (Gift) | Boots: Target
Jacket: Express | Tee: Old Navy | Jeans: Express | Necklace: Stella & Dot (Gift) | Shoes: Sole Society
Jacket: Express | Tee: Express | Jeans: Express | Shoes: Express
As you can tell from the outfits I'm wearing above, most of my favorite jeans are from Express and of course, included in the sale! For a breakdown of the different types of jeans at Express (e.g. Performance Stretch vs. Jean Leggings vs. Supersoft) check out my review and explanation in This Post.

I originally planned to share my wishlist and/or Sale Purchases in today's post but unfortunately I couldn't fit that into my schedule. I will try to put a little something together to share over the weekend for those who like to know what I buy and have a chance to get it at the sale price themselves. I'm also stalking a couple of items at other stores and waiting for a good sale so I'll include those in the bonus post as well. So make sure to check back over the holiday weekend or subscribe via email if you want to know what I bought!
