Fall Outfit Ideas


Fall is officially here and I'm enjoying the crisp breezes, colorful leaves, and pumpkin flavored everything. Fall fashion is my favorite season because I like to play around with different layers and bring out all of my boots and cardigans as I have a capsule of sorts that I always wear.  Here are some staples items you'll need for your basic fall look.

 Over the Knee Boots


Cardigans
Long cardigans are one my favorite pieces to wear. Have you heard of the Third Piece Rule? It's a third article of clothing after your shirt and pants. That third piece adds the finishing touch to any outfit that makes your outfit more put together and polished. That's what a cardigan does that a sweater can't.



Chunky Sweaters
Who doesn't love sweater season? I love wearing fall toned sweaters in plum and rust.



The Blanket Scarf
This also falls under the third piece rule as it takes a basic outfit and makes it look more interesting. You can find a ton of affordable options on Amazon.


Tunics & Ripped Jeans
This is the shirt that I have in 4 colors. It's such a popular shirt they bring it back every season in new colors. My boss and I actually both have the same colored ones and we agreed on what days of the week when each can wear it. I can wear mine on Thursdays and she wears her on Fridays. lol The Express has been my go to for jeans.

Panama Hat
Here's the tunic shirt again in black with a wide brimmed hat. I found a similar hat on amazon for cheap.

 Booties
I always go with the lowest heel I can find so they can be comfortable enough to wear for hours.


Wedge Sneaker

A cross between heels and a sneaker, we're having a moment where sneakers are chic and on trend. I bought a pair at the end of last season so I haven't had a chance to wear my yet. I really like them because it's like wearing a taupe bootie but more comfortable. They go great with jeans, a tee and a cardigan.

Switching to Natural Deodorant


I decided to make the switch to natural deodorant. Seems like in the past few years natural deodorants have been all the craze with lots of people talking about it. See the aluminum toxins in regular deodorant have supposedly been linked to harmful diseases like breast cancer yet there is no real scientific evidence backing up that claim. However there has been accepted research that says that a plant-based diet decreases your risk of cancer. So when I saw everyone jumping on the natural deodorant bandwagon, but not changing their diet it seemed so disingenuous to me. Hence it seemed too trendy  so I resisted making the switch myself as I just wasn’t sold on the idea. Plus why switch to something healthier that the initial reviews said made you smell and be sweaty? 

Harvest Bronze clothes at Old Navy

I was trying to think of a word to describe this shade of orange then remembered that my living room is painted Benjamin Moore -Harvest Bronze and it's the same shade of orange. It's always been a favorite color of mine to wear yet a hard color to find. This season Old Navy has 30 pieces of clothing in this shade! Ranging from pants, to sweaters, blouses, tanks, shorts and dresses. Will you be rocking this color? I think it's a stunning color because you rarely see it on people so the color pops as it's unexpected.

Movies on Netflix - 2019


I still have the DVD in the mail plan for $12 a month as do 4 million other people. I do this because when I see a commercial for a movie on TV, I can immediately put it in my netflix queue and get it in the mail just a few months later. When I tell my friends what movies I'm watching at home, they tell me it's not in the streaming plan. I do switch to the streaming plan for one month every summer to watch Orange is the New Black and Wentworth and see this for myself. I also have Hulu so I feel I have enough to watch and don't need netflix streaming or cable.
