Random Fact: Did you know that there have been over 29,000 tweets that have featured the hash tag: #pumpkinspice since August of 2012? (according to Starbucks.com). Wow that's a lot of love for all things pumpkin spice!
But in all reality, I haven't been as excited about Fall this year as I typically am. I just don't feel like I got to really enjoy Summer. It has been a very mild Summer, we had a lot of rain, and I didn't get to enjoy any pool days :(
So in order to get myself on the mood for Fall, I have been browsing Pinterest for some fun fashion and beauty trends that I want to try out this Fall. And today I am going to share some of my favorites.
1. Fall Outfits:
I have decided that in order to survive Winter this year, I need to invest in some cute boots. Yes that will make putting my sandals away and the fact that I can't see my cute pedicure a little easier. I found these outfits on Pinterest, and I actually already have most of these items already in my closet. I just need to invest in some cute tall brown boots, and a cute pair of booties, oh and I totally want to get a pair of the boot socks this year. Did anyone else see these all over GroopDealz last year? Why did I never pull the trigger on those? I hope they have them again this year :) And although I don't dress up much anymore since my workplace is so casual, I will need some dressier outfits for my upcoming Mary Kay parties, and I just love the idea of belting a cardigan and adding some cute flower pins. I feel like I could probably make a few of these for pretty cheap and add to my current cardigans (I have so many!!).
2. Beauty Trends:
I have seen a lot of purples and teals and blues in the Fall trend reports. And I'll be honest these are my favorite colors to wear. My latest favorite makeup colors are a silver and plum mineral eye shadow, with violet liner and plum mascara. Yes it may seem like a lot of purple, but the liner and mascara are more like a gray purple, so it's almost kind of neutral and works so well with the silver and purple eye shadows. I also just recently had a pedicure and choose OPI's Casino Royale which I thought was the perfect shade for transition into fall. I have also recently used OPI's Russian Navy, and just love that color as well. It's a dark navy blue, but it looks almost purplish. And I love this light pink lip stain. It part of the new Fairy Tales & Fantasies collection from Mary Kay, and it's a very nice neutral lip color, but it's a lip stain and it says on forever.
3. Fall Bags:
So I totally love this bag from Coach, but holy moly when did Coach start selling $1,400 bags? My Momma always said I had champagne taste on a beer budget...and I do love a little champs :)
This is a little more along my budget, but I am still a little unsure of the printed fabric. What are your thoughts? I would love an animal print bag for fall, and I like the idea that this is such a dark brown it's almost black, so it would really go with almost anything.
4. Fall Boots:
So I mentioned new boots this Fall are a must. I love these from Tory Burch, but once again the price point is a little high for my budget. I mean I could afford to buy these, I no longer have a car payment, and that would have almost covered the price, but I keep thinking I could have a few pairs of boots for this price. I saw a few pairs at Macy's that were similar, and I think I might hit up DSW in the next week or so and see what else is out there before I make up my mind. Thoughts? Are they worth it, or am I missing out on something better? I really want to be trendy AND save money.
5. Fall Watch:
Ok so watches aren't necessarily a Fall item, but I don't have one, and I think I need one. Especially this one. Although I feel like I need a silver one also for when I am wearing silver jewelry or if I am wearing black or gray. What are your thoughts? Would you wear this one with everything? I have so many fashion questions today? I'll admit I need help. Any advice is welcome :)
What are you excited about for Fall? Any fun fashion trends? PSLs?
