The most perfect #tbt package from #olay

A post shared by Byrdie (@byrdiebeauty) on

One of my favorite new beauty sites, Byrdie, posted this photo on their Instagram yesterday. It looks to be a gift package from Olay and includes a Bayside High sweatshirt, a Clueless DVD, candy that I wish was in my mouth right now, a scrunchie, a shiny backpack, an *NSYNC CD, and their new product.

My first reaction: I'm jealous I didn't get one. My second reaction: This gives me shopping ideas for the weekend. My third reaction: I still wish the *NSYNC part at the VMAs had been longer.

But seriously, the fall just makes me want to shop. All. The. Time. This is a very fun but dangerous prospect. I also feel like every time fall rolls around I look in my closet and there are NO CLOTHES. What did I even wear last year? I know I went to work every day and clothing was involved, but I swear there are like three outfits in there.

Hence the need for shopping times. And inspiration straight from Saved by the Bell. Sometimes I can't remember what I did last week, but I can still quote numerous SBTB eps. So there's that When I was in college the reruns were on all the time on TBS and we watched them constantly. The shows always started at like 5:05 or 6:35. What was that all about? Anyway, back to the Saturday morning sitcom fashion inspiration.

First up, that Bayside sweatshirt, famously worn by Kelly Kapowski -- off-the-shoulder of course. I love a slouchy fashion-y sweatshirt. The fabric and the cut are, of course, cooler than your average grey Champion variety which can make them more expensive but they do come in a range of prices. I love that you can wear it with a skirt and chunky boots, leather pants, or if you want to go full Kapowski...a printed jean (also a big denim trend this season.)

I love this Current/Elliot (one of my favorite styling duos from Los Angeles who also have a fantastic clothing line now. If you want to invest in some great jeans, I highly recommend theirs) Stadium Sweatshirt, especially the length. But it is pricey at $158 -- though I'm sure I'd wear it OFTEN.

I also found a Vince Camuto version with studs on the shoulders which is super cool and currently on sale for about $35.

And now the bottoms: Printed jeans were a Kelly Kapowski staple. (As were crop tops which I still can't believe are sticking around for another season...but we'll get to that another day.)

They are currently EVERYWHERE. And I've been on the fence about the trend. But the more I see it, the more I like it. So I'm going all in. You can find them in varying degrees of print boldness -- and in many, many sizes and price points. That's just the way I like my trends.

A couple I think are pretty great:

And so begins my weekend shopping wishlist...
