Happy Monday! Last week was super busy for me with getting new sorority sisters and starting up with study hours and clubs and college life in general but I happy to be back this week! I am craving this fall weather now; I love not sweating on my way to class! However, it usually doesn’t get this cold this fast so I still have more summer clothes than fall clothes but I’ll make due with what I have. To help me get in the autumn mood, I have been pinning to my Pinterest board, making a wish list for my 5 purchases this season and putting together some transitional outfits. Here are a few of my favorite pieces for fall that I couldn’t live without!
Plaid Shirt: mine are usually from the thrift store but they are starting to look a little worn out so I’m looking into replacing them
Fall Hat: I am a hat person although I don’t own a large collection of them. I am looking the way that this one looks and it has a fall/winter texture rather than the straw one that I currently own
Cozy Sweater: it is starting to be sweater weather!
Riding Boots: these are my staple, 90% of my outfits for the next 6 months will include these!
Makeup: neutral eyeshadows mixed with foundation and a berry lip are my autumn face, plus a dark red nail color
Watch: I would love a grown-up watch so I don’t have to pull out my phone in the middle of class…
Leather Tote: this is actually something that I am looking for, I want one that is big and can fit my laptop but not so oversized that it overwhelms me (any suggestions?)
Hand Lotion: my hands get so cracked in the dry weather that I always have this in my purse or backpack
Studs: little pearls are the way to go for a classic simple style
And sensing an overall trend…GOLD! I am typically a silver kinda gal but gold has been really catching my eye lately!
What are your autumn essentials? Anything you would add?
