Fall Staples to Buy this Labor Day

We are not huge advocates for buying for the sake of buying and crushing a sale. Instead, we like to make planned purchases and try buy only when needed. We try to buy ethically produced items (when possible) and we almost always choose items that are staple items. Staple items meaning classic, easy to pair with and will live in our closet for a long time. 

The good news is that end of season / beginning of a new season sales can still be your best friend when in that mind set. In each one you'll be sure to find your everyday jeans, classic mix and match pieces, and the dress for every occassion.

So here's what we're shopping for this Labor Day weekend:
