Fall Favorites

    What's not to love about fall? The weather gets cooler, the leaves change from green to red, the days speed by until suddenly it's Halloween... then Thanksgiving... then Christmas! It's the gateway to the end of another wonderful year. Oh, and how could I forget the pumpkin spice lattes! yum.

Fashion Favorites
This season I'm totally loving more burgundy and dark tones. An absolute favorite trend of mine is making a comeback: grunge. Hi, 90's! We missed you.

  1. Flannels- Flannel shirts are one of my ultimate closet staples because you could totally dress them up or down. Add a chunky J Crew necklace  to a buttoned up flannel with some black skinny jeans and riding boots, and voila! Prepster chic. Or add an unbuttoned flannel rolled to the elbows to a cute lace dress for a dressed down outfit.
  2. Silky Tanks- If you're like me, and still live in a place where the weather is about 90 degrees on the daily, tanks are still a must. Switch from casual summer tanks to dressier silk tanks for fall. Just add minimal jewelry and skinnies. 
  3. Ripped Jeans- I. love. ripped. jeans. Boyfriend jeans are so versatile! They add the perfect edge to any outfit. Try pairing them with booties or, my personal favorite, metallic slip-on sneakers
  4. Plaid Skirts- Plaid skirts are great with band tees! Pair this ensemble with a chunky necklace and black booties! 
  5. Band Tees- Like I mentioned above, band tees look so cute with plaid skirts. It's grunge, yet girly.. Punk without the commitment of a half-shaved head or lip piercing. I usually fold the sleeves up or cut the collar for a more feminine look. They also look great with skinny jeans and a statement necklace. Check out Bauble Bar for some amazing pieces of jewelry.  

Accessory Favorites
No outfit is complete without accessories, and fall is the perfect time to experiment with different styles! 
  1. Panama Hats- Panama hats look great on everyone, from Harry Styles to Kylie Jenner. Panama hats are the perfect addition to any outfit. My personal favorite is from Urban Outfitters
  2. Stackable Rings- Stacking your rings is so much fun. Rings add a little flair to the most casual outfits. Some of my favorites are from Earth Bound and Nasty Gal.
  3. Studded Bracelets- Continuing with the grunge trend, studded bracelets vamp up even dressy outfits. 
  4. Chokers- Need I say more? Possibly the best return of a 90's trend. Check out Sweet Paradisco on Etsy for the best chokers.
  5. Rounded Sunglasses- Sunglasses are still a must in sunny Texas. My favorites are my Ray-Bans
Beauty Favorites
  1. Burgundy and Gold Nail Polish- Essie has some great fall colors. 
  2. Neutral and Metallic Eyeshadows- Try the Urban Decay Naked 2 palatte, or my personal favorite the Lorac Pro Palatte.
    • BONUS: If you didn't already know, Michelle Phan is a makeup genius; she's created my new favorite fall makeup beauty look-- Grunge Beauty-- Check it out! 

Luck and Love,
