Thanksgiving, rompers, jumpsuits, fall

With Thanksgiving only a couple days away, there’s so much to do–grocery shopping, meal prepping, decorating, and most importantly…outfit planning.

It can be difficult to know what to wear as a guest. You don’t want to be over the top, uncomfortable, or too casual.

Wearing a romper or jumpsuit is the perfect answer. Rompers effortlessly evoke the appropriate combination of looking like you tried while still being able to move.

Off The Shoulder Sweaters

Sometimes I feel like adding a little pizzazz to my outfit even when I’m slightly chilly, and I find showing a little shoulder does the trick. Off the shoulder sweaters are great for staying warm while showing some skin during the transitional months. If you too want to keep the bare shoulder trend alive, check out a few sweaters I’m loving!

Fall Scarves

Summer is turning to fall quickly this year, and I’m more than ready for the shift of seasons. One of my favorite fall fashion pieces is scarves. They can dress up and add style to an average look, and their cozy feel is comforting on a brisk, chilly morning. Living under the redwoods, I find myself wearing a big, warm scarf at home in my loungewear on most fall evenings. One of my favorite fall looks is a messy bun or ponytail and a scarf, perfect for days when I am not up for doing my hair. If you’re not on the scarf bandwagon yet, keep scrolling for major scarf inspiration.

Fall Fashion Inspo

Now that we are heading into late August, I’ve got Autumn on the brain. Usually Santa Cruz has an Indian Summer, but I find myself longing for cooler evenings, oversized sweaters, and hot apple cider. To feed my craving, I’ve rounded up some of the most fitting Fall inspiration finds from Pinterest. If these looks don’t get you in the mood to go pumpkin picking and sit by the fire with your favorite mystery book, I don’t know what will.

Sweater Weather

Sweater weather is in full swing, and I couldn’t be happier. When the temperature dips, my go-to looks usually involve a sweater. I love pairing a cardigan over a tank top and high waisted jeans, putting on booties with a chunky turtleneck, or wearing a simple loose-knit pull over with leggings and flats. Fall is the perfect time to update your sweater collection! After perusing multiple stores, H&M definitely has the best options for the best price. No matter the style, fit, or color, they have what you’re looking for and more! Check out some of my favorite sweaters from their collection:

Fall Decor Inspiration

I love how the short, brisk days of Fall make me want to curl up by a fire with a good book, a warm blanket, and a mug of hot apple cider. I grew up in a home that always felt good to be in, with many nooks for curling up. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that making a house feel like a home is no accident, and I appreciate the efforts my parents made to always make our house warm and inviting, particularly around special times of year. When I moved to the city for school, I missed those many comforts. To help make my apartment feel like home, I started decorating with little bits and pieces to bring the Holidays inside. For me, when Summer turns to Fall, that means hanging string lights around the windows, getting a few small pumpkins to set out, and lighting pumpkin pie scented candles. If you’re having some trouble coming up with Autumn décor ideas, check out some of the Pinterest inspirations below.

Halloween Make-up Inspiration

Halloween is just around the corner! As I’ve gotten older, dressing up for the festivities has become more and more of a chore. When I was a kid, it felt so hard to decide between so many great choices, but now I usually feel completely unable to find a really good costume. Unluckily, I’ve never been crafty enough to make an entire original creation either. I’ve learned to focus on the make-up as the centerpiece of my effort. When the make-up is really good, somehow the rest of a costume is always elevated too, and it makes the whole thing fun again. Check out some of my favorite beauty YouTubers for some inspiration:

Autumn Boots Wish List

Am I the only one who’s noticed it’s getting a little chillier? It’s finally time to pull back out my favorite type of shoes…BOOTS! For the rest of the year I’ll probably wear boots more than anything else. Aside from the added warmth, boots can elevate the average outfit, add personality and flare, or simply act as a delivery system for an easy-to-walk-in heel. I love all different styles of boots— be it ankle length to over the knee, or a bright color to a classic black. Check out my Autumn Boots Wish List below; you’ll be ready to go pumpkin picking in no time!

Fall Inspiration

Fall is finally here! Hands down, this is my favorite season, and October is the best month of the year where I live. I love the cooler weather, shorter days, and cozy vibes that Fall brings, and we can’t forget about the fashion, of course! I wanted to share some Fall trends to look out for, according to a few bloggers that have been inspiring me for years. Check them out:

Plaid Please

Plaid is definitely back in style. I used to wear plaid a lot when I was a kid and have since tried to incorporate it into my wardrobe with bits and pieces, like a subtle scarf here and there, but now I feel like I can really dive in. I love the look of a plaid skirt. And no, I don’t mean like an old Britney Spears music video, but rather something a little longer, classier, and paired with a chunky sweater and boots.

Say “Yes” to Camel

Camel is one of the colors I rarely gravitate towards, but all of a sudden I’m thinking I need to hop on the trend train. Camel is simple, yet sophisticated. The earthy tone suits Fall perfectly, bringing out the foliage nicely. I love an oversized camel sweater or dress, and maybe even a camel wool coat too. It’s meant to be a statement piece, and that statement is understated elegance.

Pleated Skirts are Unexpectedly Fun

Late Afternoon, Pleated Skirts

Late Afternoon

A long pleated skirt has been on my wish list for some time now, but I’ve been seeing them a lot lately. Long skirts transition well—you can pair them with a sweater or heavier coat, flats or booties, and dress them up or down. They are a must-have closet staple, and add just a tad of special to an ordinary style.

Pop Some Color

Usually when I think of Fall, I imagine muted colors and tones, like tan, burgundy, and green. But I love the way an accessory can add a pop to a Fall outfit. It isn’t overwhelming, just a little something to make you look twice. One bright color can be the best complement to an otherwise understated look. I love the splash of a brightly colored scarf, tights, or piece of jewelry.

Suede is a great alternative to a heavy leather jacket. It’s lighter, subtler, and softer! The brown suede jacket is a classic look for Fall, but other colors are fun too. A warm burgundy or orange is a playful way to wear the fabric. Suede makes everything more fashionable. Throw it over a simple t-shirt and jeans; you’ll be ready for whatever the day has in store!

Sometimes I feel stuck in my style. This time of year starts moving so fast, I end up wearing the same outfit on repeat. For me that means high waisted jeans, flannel, booties, and my leather jacket. But Fall is the perfect time to experiment. Check out a few of my favorite bloggers that bring new meaning to the word inspire. Not only is their Fall Fashion game strong, but they are apart of the Girl Boss Club that I aspire to join one day.
