Hello Fall, Goodbye Summer!

Yesterday was the first day of fall for 2016 ! Fall is my second favorite season after spring. I get to wear over-sized sweaters, warm patterned leggings, and break out the cute boots I haven’t seen since last winter.

Instead of an outfit shot today, I put together a little fall mood board. This is just a few things that gets me excited and inspired for the fall.

Fall trees: the red and orange trees signify change is coming and change is a positive and neceesary thing. I am welcoming change this fall.

Lipstick: you have to pamper yourself every once in a while. I don’t wear makeup often but when I do, gorgeous lipstick is a must. And this color is perfect for fall.

Sweater and booties: helps you stay warm and walk through all of the storms and chilly weather fall brings. And look stylish while doing it!

Cookies and a warm drink: makes me think about being cozy and comfortable. Every once in a while you have to take a step back from your busy life and enjoy the little things.

I hope my moodboard is as motivational and inspirational to you as it is to me. Try creating one of your own and let me know how it goes! ❤

Sweater Dress Selfie

Two weekends ago my roommate, a friend of ours, our friend’s roommate, and I went to a Halloween dance on my college campus.sweater dress

It was quite chilly that night so instead of wearing costumes for the dance, we all thought it would be cool to wear super classy sweater dresses with heels. I must admit, we looked great!

In this post is two of my favorite “sweater dress selfies” from that night. I purchased this lovely sweater dress from a cute store called Strawberry.

I love this dress because it is very slimming and super warm. Perfect for a fall night out or even a date night dinner with your significant other.

I paired my sweater dress with black ankle booties. Since the dress is so long, I figured shoes or heels that stopped at my ankle would be perfect.

I still have my long Marley twists in my hair as well. I styled them in a big half bun half down up do.

I also wore small black earrings and light lip gloss to finish off the look. It was a great night and I was not only super stylish, but also warm and cozy!

Have a fantastic week everyone. Stay beautiful! ❤

Fall Fashion Wishlist

wishlistWe are just about right in the middle of fall. The pretty leaves are falling to the ground and the weather is getting a bit chillier.

These are a few items I really need to have in my fall wardrobe collection. How many of these do you own?
plaid flannels
Plaid flannel

I don’t know why, but I just really love flannels, but I don’t own any yet! Flannels can be dressed up with a cute skirt, tights, and tall boots or dressed down with a pair of jeans and flats. Not only can they be worn by themselves, but they also make for a perfect layering piece under a jacket or coat.

As the weather gets cooler, I believe that your lipstick should get deeper and darker. Fall colored lipstick consists of deep shades of red, orange, brown, and even dark purple. I have my eyes on some dark purple lipstick this fall because I would love to try something new.sweater leggings

Sweater leggings

Luckily I can cross this one off of my wish list. Sweater leggings are not only colorful and comfy, they also keep your legs really warm. They are perfect for the fall when paired with a sweater or cardigan and they will even keep you warm and cozy during the winter months.

Tall boots literally can be paired with any and every thing. You can wear them with dresses, skirts, pants, leggings, and the list goes on and on. Tall boots come in a variety of colors such as browns, blacks, grays, and beige. They also come in a variety of lengths where some can stop above the knee, others on the knee, and some a little below the knee. It’s your preference!

This isn’t really a necessity for the fall, but they are just super cute! They are perfect for those lazy hair days and can add adorableness to almost any look. They also come in a  variety of colors and styles.

I hope you consider adding some of these items to your fall wish list if you haven’t brought them already.

Enjoy the rest of your lovely weekend and happy fall! ❤
