My favorite thing to do on Friday’s is online window shop. Totally normal, right? I’m not wishing away summer by any means but, this week I’ve put together a list of my favorite pre-fall, back-to-school if you will, pieces. And ok, maybe I snuck in some late summer must-haves too, like this Flynn Skye maxi dress and this yellow lace top. It’s just too hard not to! Happy browsing and happy weekend!
It’s not going to happen over night, or even consistantly for a few months, but fall is coming. Instead of waking up to the chilly air one morning and scrounging through your old fall and winter clothes looking for something cute to wear, why not do a quick closet update with pieces you know you will use until it’s 75 and sunny again?
Here are my 4 fall must haves.
leather motorcycle jacket: Unless you’re rolling in the dough, it’s hard to find an affordable leather moto jacket that looks good. This quilted number may be faux leather but it is well crafted and will still hold it’s own next to even your chicest pieces.
camo skinny jeans: Camo is everywhere right now and I’m really loving it on a pair of skinny jeans. This pair is super accessible and would be cute paired with a button up blouse, slouchy sweater or tee.
studded bag: A good black tote is always a staple but when it’s adorned with these pretty studs it really wins. Get one now!
booties: Last year I lived in a few pairs of booties from October until March. This year I’m on the hunt for a few new pairs and think this neutral pair would look so cute with jeans and dresses.
PS – check out an interview I did for Bang Style.
It might be because I have light eyelashes, but mascara is hands down my favorite beauty product. Even on days when I’m going for a clean look I love to finish it off with a couple swipes of mascara. I love trying new products but there’s nothing more disappointing than being stuck with a brand new tube of mascara that you hate. My mascara prerequisites? Lengthen, define and add volume… all in one, of course. It may seem impossible but I’ve broken down my top three that fit the bill.
Let me know your fav!
