My Fall Essentials

source

THE GREATEST SEASON OF THE YEAR IS UPON US!!!!!! I absolutely love the Fall. I love the weather, the colors, the crisp air, the honey crisp apples it produces, the cozy clothes & all the pumpkin flavored goodies. I really could go on and on about how much I love this season, but instead I will just talk about everything I need to look and feel great in the Fall! Here are my Fall essentials:

Beauty:


Oxblood and black nail polish
I love dark nails for Fall. My favorite polish is called Wicked by Essie (what a sick name, am I right??!)

Lip balm
I really like eos lip balm because its not too heavy and does a great job moisturizing my lips! I use it every night and periodically throughout the day.

Paraffin lotion 
My hands always get super dry in the Winter, so I make sure to start the moisturizing process early in the Fall. The lotion I use is called True Blue Spa Super Softening Hand Lotion from Bath & Body Works. 


Fashion:

Booties 
Booties are the PERFECT fall shoe. They're super cute and will keep your feet warm on chilly days!

Cozy socks 
I am a sucker for a cute pair of socks. I have just about every print you could imagine, and fall is the perfect season to break them out and let them peep out of your booties!

Lightweight beanie
A cute lightweight beanie is the perfect way to add some pizzaz to your favorite fall outfit (bonus: it will help keep your pretty head warm on chilly days)

Utility jacket
A great grey/olive green utility jacket is absolutely the most versatile fall wardrobe necessity. If you don't own one already, you MUST buy one ASAP.

Flannel
Everyone needs a nice warm flannel. They're perfect to wear on their own or over your favorite tee for days when being comfortable is an absolute priority.

Blanket scarf
I love a good blanket scarf! I have a reversible one from sheinside.com that I absolutely adore. Blanket scarves are perfect for keeping your neck warm AND accessorizing your super cute Fall look. 

Food & Home:


Coffee, tea & apple cider 
Nice, yummy (and warm) drinks are a must for fall. There is something about the crisp fall air that makes me crave a warm drink. (extra points if you curl up with a great book to accompany your warm beverage)

Pumpkin bread 
My Nanny makes the most delicious pumpkin bread! I always love visiting home in the Fall because she always has a loaf (or several) ready for me to bring back to school.

Honeycrisp apples
The superior apple. Enough said.

Crockpot
Who doesn't love a good crockpot recipe? I love coming home to the smell of crockpot tortilla soup on a cold day!

Candles
I have an unhealthy obsession with seasonal scented candles- specifically Fall and Winter. The scents just remind me of Thanksgiving and Christmas and it makes my heart feel all warm and cozy. 

Pumpkins
We had pumpkins at our house every year growing up, so I have to make sure I have a pumpkin out in the Fall! My mom even sent me a mini pumpkin in a care package when I lived in a dorm. Now my boyfriend and I make a day out of it to pick out our pumpkins and carve them! It's a fun tradition we started together last year that I'm really looking forward to. 

Blankets
There is absolutely nothing better than curling up under a nice cozy blanket on a rainy Fall day. I am currently in the process of shopping for an affordable cute one as my cat has taken over my favorite blanket.
