fall essentials

fall essentials



Chambray shirt::
This is so popular right now and it's basically a neutral so you can wear it with pretty much anything and everything.
Old Navy, Gap + H&M are great places to pick up cheaper versions.

Military inspired jacket::
I love how versatile these jackets can be
plus they are lightweight so you they're perfect for crisp fall days.
I got mine from Kohls
but you can find options pretty much anywhere these days!

Ballet Flats::
I love ballet flats for fall because they're super comfy
and so quick to throw on.
I am hoping for a pair from either Tieks or Yosi Samra soon.

Gloves or Mittens::
Gotta keep your digits warm in the cold, crisp air of fall.
I love American Eagle or Old Navy for these.

Sparkly necklace::
When you want to add a little sparkle to your outfit this necklace is perfect.
I got mine from Nordstrom's during the sale but you can
get a super similar one from Hellofab.

Knit beanie::
Keeping your head warm is super important since all your body heat escapes
from your head or feet.
My goto's for beanies are Gap, Old Navy or Target.

Chunky scarf::
Going along with the theme of staying warm a chunky scarf is always a good idea.
I usually head to Etsy for a good quality handmade one.

Hairbands::
I like the ones that don't crease your hair.
You can get them everywhere but I love Knotieties
because she really does have every color and pattern you can imagine.

Printed leggings::
Some fun printed leggings are great with a big chunky sweater
and some ankle booties.
Groopdealz & Jane are great places to find cute ones.

Warm socks::
Sweater socks for those nights when it's super cold
and you need to keep your toes warm.
I love American Eagle or H&M for them.

Riding boots::
These are definitely an essential in my book
they have so many different cute ones plus you can get them in any color.
DSW or Famous Footwear are great for cheaper options.

Watch::
I good quality watch is important to get your kids to school on time.
Michael Kors and Kate Spade always have amazing watches
sure they are a bit pricey but a watch is something you can keep for a long time
and you need a high quality one that will last.

Sweater::
An oversized, warm, comfy sweater is 100% an essential for me.
I get cold easy so a good layering sweater is necessary.
Old Navy, H&M + Forever21 are great places to look for them.

Polka dot skinnies::
I have a pair of these and they are by far my favorite jeans right now.
I wear them all the time and with everything!
I got mine from Gap
but you can find them at Target, Old Navy + Forever21 right now.

Dark nail polish::
Gotta keep your fingers up with the color trends
and fall colors.
Essie, "Twin Sweater Set" + "Vested Interest" 
are my favorite colors.

Wallet::
A good wallet is an essential in my opinion.
Mine fits my cell phone so I can use it as a clutch also.
Kate Spade is good for an expensive one or Forever21 is great for a cheaper version.

Berry colored lipstick::
A good berry colored lipstick is perfect for fall.
Bare Minerals, "Never Say Never" is my favorite.

Mascara::
A good mascara is always important.
But in the fall a dramatic eye can be so fun to play around with.
So Benefit, "They're Real" is perfect.

Foundation::
A great foundation that has good coverage is something you need in the fall.
I use Benefit, "Hello Flawless" and love it.

Eye Brightener::
I totally need an eye brightener all year round but in fall I need it way more.
I use Bare Minerals, "Stroke of Light" and it works great.
It even conceals a little bit.

Chapstick::
I have to have Chapstick with SPF because I get
canker sores super easily because I have a genetic disease that causes them.
My favorite is Soft Lips, "Raspberry Mint" it just tastes so good.

Body Lotion::
The cool air dries out my skin so super fast that a really moisturizing
lotion is super important for me.
I can't stand when my hands feel dry.
I love Bath & Body Works, "Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin" because it smells so good
and it's triple moisture.

A tablet::
I love having my iPad in fall to play games + reading favorite my blogs.
I got mine for Christmas a few years ago.
Amazon, Apple, or Barnes & Noble are places to find different tablets.

Booties::
A good pair of booties is essential for a cool day when you don't want to wear knee high boots.
I got mine from Jessica Simpson.
But DSW has some amazing ones right now.

Face lotion::
A really good moisturizing face lotion is so important because of the drying weather in fall.
I love Dermalogica's, "Skin Smoothing Cream".

Eye cream::
I moisturize my eyes with something other than my face cream since your eye area is
so much more sensitive.
I use Bare Minerals, "Renew and Hydrate Eye Cream" and I really like it.

Eyeshadow::
A little bit darker eyeshadow in the fall is something fun to play with.
I really like this trio from Bare Minerals
because you get 3 colors and they all work together
and complement each other.

Primer::
A good primer is important to keep your makeup on your face all day.
I have been hearing great things about
Benefit, "Stay Flawless" and I am going to go get it for fall.

Rain Boots::
A good looking pair of rain boots is super important here in Oregon.
It rains most of fall so keeping your feet dry is not always easily done without them.
I got some Hunter Rain Boots for my birthday last year + love them!

Face Powder::
A good face powder keeps your face from looking shiny
and also helps keep your makeup on all day.
I like Bare Minerals, "Mineral Veil" because it's translucent.

Blush::
A more berry colored blush is great for fall 
because of the darker colors you are sporting in clothing.
I am going to try MAC, "Love Thing" because I love MAC blushes.

Brown Bag::
A large brown tote bag is perfect for fall.
I love this one from Jessica Simpson 
because the bow is adorable!

Flannel shirt::
A cute flannel shirt is a great statement piece plus super cute.
I got mine from Old Navy + Forever21.

Slippers::
A good comfy pair of slippers is great for those cold nights in.
I found those at Old Navy 
but Macy's has some great options too.

Pumpkin Spice Latte::
This is should be obvious.
On cold days a nice hot Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks is perfect to warm you up.

Soup::
I love soup + salad/sandwiches in the fall.
It's my comfort food. 
This recipe here for Butternut Squash soup looks delish 
and I am definitely going to be trying it this fall.

Long Sleeve T-shirt::
A cute, comfy long sleeve t-shirt is essential in the fall.
On those days that are cool but cold enough for a jacket or sweater.
This one from American Eagle is something I am coveting.

Wine::
A good glass of wine can warm you up on those cold nights in with your hubby.
I like Skinny Girl + Cupcake, "Red Velvet".

Pajama Set::
A cute pajama set is something that'll keep you warm but still keep you looking cute.
Victoria's Secret has the best ones but 
Target really stepped up their game last year 
and I'm hoping they'll have some cute ones again this year.

Robe::
A comfy, cozy robe is good to keep you warm when you're lounging at home
watching some TV or movies.
I got mine at American Eagle years ago + still love it.

Movies::
A good movie on a cold night with your honey is a perfect evening in my opinion.
I like the Harry Potter series or the Twilight Saga.

Books::
Good books are something I love in fall. 
I am a reader + always have been so in fall when you have that fire going 
and it's cold outside + raining it's my favorite activity.
I am super excited for the 3rd book in the Divergent Trilogy
Allegiant coming in October.

Candles::
A great smelling candle is essential.

Blanket::
A good blanket to curl up under next to the fire while reading your book 
and drinking your wine is exactly what I love.
I love this blanket from Pottery Barn.

Fire:: 
I love a fire in the fall. 
An essential when buying our new home is going to be a fireplace.
We have one in this house and I love turning it on at night and cozying up with the hubs.
