It's October, a perfect time to really have fun with fall looks. The weather is going through a transitional period, so you can have fun mixing it up with layers. Check out our picks for the month:

I recently did some shopping for some fall basics and also knocked off a few things on my most wanted lists from the past months. I figured I needed to introduce some things to my closet to get me through the colder months that I could also combine with some existing clothes and mix and match to make the most of it. I decided to go to Kohl's, H&M, Forever 21, JC Penny & Von Maur for a few basics: burgundy blazer, striped cardigan, coral sweater, plain tee, denim jacket, and a few pairs of jeans. I also found a great bargain on some wedge sneakers I had been wanting - Forever 21's version was just the style I was looking for, and under $40. My purchases below:

I think I did pretty good for fall shopping, and some of these items will go right into winter and spring.

When fall comes around, I love to grab the end of summer deals. Dillard's always has major clothing and shoe sales. I find myself more inclined to buy shoes because I feel like they can still be worn through the fall. I picked a pair of Vince Camuto peep toe bow pumps. I tried these on at the beginning of summer. They are extremely cute with jeans… an easy way to dress them up. At the time they were $120 but once the end of season clearance came around, I got them for $27. I also picked up a pair of Gianni Bini wedges for only $16.

Normally, I'm not into the beauty as much as clothing (I rarely wear makeup). One of my family members sells Mary Kay and she introduced me to Satin Lips. The set comes with a lip mask and balm. I tried it out and it works amazing. We know cold weather is coming and that means chapped lips! LOL For only $18, not a bad investment. Next she talked me into trying this Lash Building Serum. It's supposed to help build thicker, fuller looking lashes. I'll do a before and after picture and in a couple of months, I'll give you all an update if it works.

As for most wanted items for October - I now have 1 month until I move in to my first place, so I'm really only going to be focusing on home decor and furniture items this month, but I will definitely be thinking about all the boots I want! Also I will need a new heavier coat at some point. I like the shape of this one from Topshop:

I have a ton of jackets and coats but I haven't purchased a varsity style yet. During the fall/winter I usually keep it kind of casual so I'd love to have a varsity jacket to add with my jeans and sneakers/boots.

The one above is from Delias and is less than $40. It comes in a variety colors. With my last name being Robertson, I could definitely rock the jacket with an R. You can grab them for similar prices from Forever 21 and Go Jane as well.
