Happy fall, ya’ll! My favorite season is upon us. It’s a time when the temperatures get cooler, the leaves change colors, and I can have as many PSL’s as my heart desires. (Seriously, don’t ask me how many I’ve had already. 😉 )
I’m a sucker for anything pumpkin flavored or fall-scented. And the fact that autumn brings about a lot of gorgeous colors and permission to wear booties and dark nail polish shades, well, I’m in heaven.
Today I’m collaborating with my original blog tribe to share with you our favorite fall essentials. (If you haven’t met them yet, check out these awesome ladies here.)
You can find links to their top fall picks at the bottom of this post, but without further ado, let’s get into this year’s fall essentials!
This scent is everything I love about fall wrapped up into a candle. I can’t get over how good it smells! Leaves fills the room with crisp red apple, golden nectar, and warm clove spice immediately after lighting it. I buy this candle every year in early August wishfully thinking that buying fall things would magically make the season come around faster. (It hasn’t worked yet. 😉 )Despite burning it every single day, I still have a ton of candle to go. If you like a cozy mulled cider scent, this is the autumn candle for you.
Okay, I may have been a little embarrassed to buy this nail polish shade based on the name alone, but I can’t get over the gorgeous warm pumpkin color on my nails for fall! This shade isn’t too orangey, which I love and will complement every skin tone. My favorite thing about this OPI polish is that it goes on smooth and dries super quick, which means my impatient self can move right on to the next task after painting my nails. 😉
You can’t go into fall without the perfect shade of red lipstick. I fell in love with this MAKE UP FOR EVER lip rouge after trying it out in an Influenster VoxBox, and I can’t get enough. The formula is super creamy for being a matte lip color, and it lasts an incredible amount of time without needing to retouch or worry about it bleeding outside of my lips. They’re also incredibly pigmented, so I can get by without a lipliner! (#score) This shade is limited edition, so if you’re interested, make sure you check it out now!
Bralettes have been my BFF lately. Not only are they super comfy but they actually have amazing support and coverage compared to a lot of other bralettes out there. I can’t get over how adorable they look in backless style shirts or basic tees with a lower neckline! I’m really excited about wearing this port wine color this fall, and I own one in black as well.
Did I mention before how much I love a good PSL? When I saw they had a Keurig version at Target I immediately knew I had to give it a try. This at-home Pumpkin Spice Latte has two parts. First, you empty the flavor packet at the bottom of your mug, and then you put the coffee pod into your Keurig and brew as normal. After a quick stir, you end up with a surprisingly good DIY latte that you don’t have to wait in line for! These are also limited edition, so if you love warm pumpkin spice drinks, give it a try.
Another fall staple for me is a good floppy hat. I found this one at my local Altar’d State and picked it up knowing that it would go perfectly with all of my fall weekend outfits. There’s something about a hat that can really pull an outfit together and give it that extra something special.
