Hi loves! It is officially the first day of Fall! Who’s excited for the most beautiful and aesthetically pleasing season of them all? The leaves have started changing colors, PSL is back at Starbucks, Forever21 has their sweaters out, my nails are painted maroon, and it’s finally FALL. Today I wanted to talk about my fall essentials, from clothing to food, I have it all covered.
♥ My first must have for fall are these booties I just recently picked up from Marshalls, by the designer Franco Sarto. They are this cool, deep brown color with silver zippers on both sides. I love the fact that the zipper is on both sides, little details like that always get me!
Because of the cool tones, you could wear these with blue jeans and a cream sweater or even with black jeans and a burnt orange sweater. The versatility in these booties is what sold me on them, I know I will get so much wear out of these this Fall.
♥ My next clothing staple is sweaters. Big, soft, comfy sweaters are my favorite thing to wear in the fall. Dressing up or dressing down a sweater is always the answer. Forever21 sells cheaper sweaters but you have to be willing to look for the better quality ones, which can sometimes be a hassle. I also like to get sweaters from Urban Outfitters and Pacsun, despite the fact that they are definitely more pricey. The orange sweater pictured here has an open back so it looks really good when you wear it with bralettes underneath. The cream sweater is more V-neck shaped and is more cropped, one of my favorite sweaters I own. The dark green one is more thick and is also cropped, I love this one for layering, especially when it starts to get more chilly out.
♥ Another staple piece for fall is black jeans, and I mean you NEED these. I literally wear my black jeans 2-3 times a week. They go with everything from graphic tees to sweaters.These jeans pictured are from Hollister. They have the rips in both knees, distressed just the right amount. I usually buy my jeans from American Eagle, but these ones were such nice quality and the fit is amazing, definitely recommend.
♥ Denim. Yes, jean jackets are always in style. My favorite jacket at the moment is this one from Marshalls, literally only $20! It is the perfect fit for me. Oversized perfectly, slightly distressed, perfect shade of blue, honestly to die for. I wear this with almost anything. It adds more to the outfit instantly, another great layering piece.
♥ The next must have for fall is socks and tights. Patterned tights dress up any boring outfit, all while keeping your legs nice and warm. I like to wear the floral tights shown with a black button up skirt and a sweater, with a staple necklace. They are also super cute with a black sweater dress or t-shirt style dress with a layered jacket. I also love to wear over the knee socks with dresses or skirts too. They look so cute and can also make your legs look slimmer. I also own a couple pair of leg warmers. Yes, leg warmers. High riding boots with the leg warmers peeping through at the top looks so good! It adds a little something extra to the outfit. Fall clothing is my favorite type of clothes to style, the color palette is just so perfect.
♥ Lets just take a moment to appreciate fall makeup trends. From berry lips to maroon eyes, I’ve tried it. Makeup is one of my favorite things to do, like ever. Being able to play around with new palettes and colors to create a look that is amazing has always been a passion of mine. The Urban Decay Naked Heat palette has every eyeshadow color you will need this fall all in one place.
♥ The next fall makeup trend I love is brownish and berry lip colors. The lipstick on the left is number 107 by Rimmel’s Kate collection, and the nudey brown color on the right is the color Posh by Mellow Cosmetics. Adding a pop of color to your look with a nice berry lipstick in the fall is the way to go! However, if you’re a person who doesn’t like to have to touch up all day, nude is a more wearable option and still makes you look put together! Tip: I always put my Burt’s Bees chapstick on while doing my face makeup so my lips can get hydrated before applying my lipstick at the end of my makeup routine. Another tip for deeper toned lipstick is to always line your lips with a lip liner to avoid feathering or bleeding on the outer part of your lip.
♥ Maroon everything in the fall, even the nails. Having my nails painted always makes me feel more organized and put together. If my nails are chipped and ugly looking I feel so blah and I can’t stop picking them until all the nail polish is off, which is even worse! This is my favorite nail color at the moment by the brand OPI, in the color Guys and Galaxies. This time of year I will always either have this color on, black or sometimes a shade of gray or taupe.
♥ Pumpkin spice anything is the key to my heart. My roommate brought this from home last weekend and it is so delicious! It has the pumpkin Special K flakes with cinnamon clusters and it is to die for! Honestly so good for anytime of the day especially a late night craving.
♥ Okay so obviously I saved the best for last, it’s PSL season. Pumpkin Spice Latte, for those who are not avid Starbucks goers. I always get my PSL with nonfat milk and of course whipped cream. It is seriously fall in a cup. This year they were selling these environmentally friendly cups with a green leaf changing into a red leaf bordering the cup, like how cute is that, I had to get one. Also, with this cup you get 10¢ off every order, which will eventually add up over time. Money off and helping the environment just by using a cute to go cup is a definite yes from me.
