My Essentials For Fall ♡

It’s finally fall! This is my second favorite season (summer’s my first). I love how the leaves change color, and everything pumpkin comes to the stores, and this may sound weird, but fall has this special, fresh smell that I absolutely adore. But as fall comes, so does colder weather. These are some of my essentials that help me through the autumn season and the cold weather.

 

FLANNELS

It isn’t fall without flannels. They just give of that vibe of comfort and coziness. Flannels are so causal and can help enhance a basic outfit. White t-shirt, jeans, flannels and some booties and you’re set to go. Here are some of the places I like to go to buy my flannels at:

Forever21

Costco

Urban Outfitters

 

DARK WASH JEANS

Something about dark wash jeans just gives of the fall vibe. They look super sophisticated and make your outfit look nice and laid back. I also really like ripped jeans in the fall. It gives it a more edgy look and fall feel to the outfit. Here are some places I go to buy my jeans:

American Eagle

TJ Maxx

Forever21

 

SWEATERS

I honestly don’t own very many sweaters because I’m actually very picky when it comes to sweaters. It’s very hard to find the perfect fall sweater. I think sweaters are nice to layer over a white dress shirt and some jeans with a pair of booties and a bold necklace to kind of bring a little pop to the outfit. It’s a very sophisticated outfit for a fall day in the city. Here are some stores I would buy sweaters at:

Forever 21

Urban Outfitters

H&M

 

BOOTIES

Boots are my favorite type of shoe to wear in the fall and winter time. Half of the shoes I own are boots. Boots just give off that warm and cozy fall vibe. They can make an outfit casual by wearing some tall brown riding boots or some short black buckle boots to spice up an outfit for night time. There are so many different styles and colors of boots. There is a perfect boot for everyone. Here are some of my favorite stores to buy boots from:

Nordstrom

Steve Madden

Forever 21

 

MAKEUP

I don’t have any specific products I use for fall but my favorite things to use are dark lip colors. I think plum and dark rose colors are perfect in autumn. They helps brighten up a neutral toned outfit. Another thing I like to do for my makeup in the fall is winged eyeliner. I think the wing gives you a little edge to your face. Big wing or small wing, it’s definitely a bold change in your look.

 

I hope I have inspired you for fall!♡

I really loved going to this fashion show. It was my first ever exclusive fashion show it was super fun. I loved seeing all the new spring trends out on the runway. I also loved how it was an exclusive seating. It was random seating but I liked how you had to have tickets to get in. It made me feel like I was going to a private party.

They provided breakfast which was really yummy. They provided food from the local hotel near by which was mainly mini quiches. There was also fresh fruit, drinks and coffee. Also Cinnabon and TopPot Donuts provided cinnamon rolls and small donuts. They were super tasty!

They had these swag bags on the chairs. Inside there are a lot of mini gifts and coupons and offers from the stores in the Bellevue Collection. One of them was a free makeover at Sephora. It was super fun getting my makeup done.

My mom and I spent most of the day shopping around using the coupons I got and visited stores that I love to shop at. We also got our nails done at (I don’t know what the name of the place is) It was super nice to relax a little after the long day of shopping.

I shopped at American Eagle and bought a pair of Dark Wash Denim Shorts, $39.95
