Fall is coming, and whether or not we're mentally prepared for the seasonal shift, as true fashion people we're always ready to update our closets. As with any new season, the chance to do a little shopping and try out a new look or two gets us jazzed but since the pandemic has shifted how we shop, many of us are looking for a few affordable closet updates, not a whole overhaul.

So if you're lusting after a new fall wardrobe but find yourself on a budget (like me!) then this one goes out to you, my friends. I've curated my dream fall-ready shopping cart at various price points from as little as $20 to as much as $80 and filled it with things like cute cardigans, luxurious-looking knits, and fun jewelry items. I even managed to find a Nanushka piece on sale for under $80 (thank me later). Scroll down to shop all my fall basics by price.
