NYC's Beloved Scoop Is Back (and Cooler Than Ever, BTW)

When I first heard that the beloved NYC boutique Scoop was making a comeback, I barely believed it. The nostalgia was real… Growing up, I would visit the store every time my family took a trip to the city. I was even more excited when I heard the comeback involved Scoop officially becoming part of Walmart's in-house brands, and the fall drop is already available online. It's full of stylish, super affordable pieces, and I'll be shocked if you don't want every single piece. I exercised a bit of willpower during checkout but still ended up with these four head-to-toe outfits with my Scoop haul. Did I mention each one clocks in at less than $175? No joke. See below.

You didn't think I'd style four fall outfits without including an animal-print piece, did you? I may have more leopard apparel and accessories than one girl needs to own, but snakeskin is the print calling my name this fall. However, if you're a leopard girl, there's plenty of that in the Scoop collection too. As for accessories, I switched things up by way of white ankle boots and a cross-body bag, because the bright shade really pops against the dress. Who knows, maybe I'll even try out white tights with this mini when the temperature really starts to drop? The styling possibilities are endless. 

I love experimenting with my office wardrobe to find that balance between fashion-forward and polished. Enter: this wide-leg plaid pants outfit complete with an ultra-soft turtleneck, a vegan-leather jacket, and heeled combat-style ankle boots. This faux-shearling barrel bag adds a bit of Marc Jacobs/Alexander Wang vibes that I'm really into. Where's my runway?

I swear by dress-and-boot outfits (as seen above) for days when I'm in a hurry, but this floral maxi–and–combat boot pairing would have you think I put in all kinds of time and effort. The dress itself looks at least twice its price (it's only $60; no joke), but it's the on-trend and slightly edgy footwear (because one pair of military-style boots wasn't enough, obviously) that takes it to the next level. Add in a mock-croc bag—a must-have accessory this season—and then we're really talking.

Cropped denim and a blazer may not feel ground-breaking, but the beauty of this outfit is in the details. For example, remember those mock-croc accessories I was talking about? Well I'm fully committing to the trend, meaning an emerald-green bag doesn't require a second thought. Up top, take note of the cool scrunched-up blazer sleeves and the way the mock-neck tank offers the perfect canvas for layering all of my favorite gold necklaces.
