Fall brings with cool breezes, excuses to try out a new layering technique and cozy new memories. Although it arrives officially on 22nd, it demands for each of us to shake up our wardrobe, beauty regimen and calendar in a special way. A new season is always a fresh opportunity to re-introduce yourself, play around with newness and the perfect time to into new adventures that fulfill you.
Here's what you need to make the transition from poolside-daquiri to hot apple cider (spiked please) as effortless as possible.
1. Cargo Jacket
This multi-facted layer will brave breezy weather, add some edge to any ensemble and will hardly let you put it down. Finding the right one will be the first adventure of the season, each comes equipped with intricate details like embroidery, prints or hardware to display your own taste. It'll easily become the neutral you can't leave the house without for work-week swag or outdoor weekend behavior. This jacket is not only layer-friendly but it almost all are equipped with secret-cinching powers to always flatter your shape.
Aside from diamonds and puppies, ankle boots are most definitely a girl's best friend once the first leaf turns. They work around the clock like your routine summer flip-flops and they help you walk into anything, confidently. Their the perfect 'grey area' between trying and not trying at all. Explore your options like you would a new flavor, based on the heel height, textile, embellishment and just overall statement you're looking to make.
Regardless, each will take you from afternoon outing, dinner festivity and to the pumpkin patch. #BOLDLY
3. Crossbody Bag
Spend this new chapter of the year taking the moment. Turn the page and hit the ground running, you need a bag that also does the job. Crossbody's reek of calm, cool and collective attitude. The perfect one swings right over your shoulder, falls right above your hip, fits your phone, plans and favorite lipstick. It packs a punch in every which way. Rebecca Minkoff makes a pretty serious one. My favorites are the ones that carry a conversation-starting detail like a bulky handle, some tassle action or bold hardware. It's also the kind of bag you can keep in the car or office for a quick transition. #youGo
4. Some TLC:
Sun ray's instantly bring me joy but with Daylights Savings Time not far from fruition either, finding new ways to bring some light into your days is a must. With the temperature dropping the moisture in your beauty regimen is going to need to up the anty. Shea Moisture's products include delicious ingredients and specialized formulas for every skin/hair demand. A good candle can set you up for an enlightened afternoon reading session or a Wine-Down with your favorite people. DW Home's Wild Honey Nectar scent brings me right into Autumn spirits. Aromatherapy is a proven form of spiritual healing and personalizing your experience with a scent that fits you, will help any stress or tension stay at the door. Beauty gems can also put the perfect touch to your mood when taking on the season's transition, Rihanna's Fenty Beauty Highlighters are the current craze and for the right reasons. The formulas are quality filled, long lasting (NYFW approved) and just straight BEAUTIFUL on all skin tones. #treatyoself
All in all, get outside, have some fun, feel and look great doing it on your terms, tis the season for the very best you.
