Tomorrow is the first official day of fall, and I could not be more excited about it! I’m ready to wear scarves and hoodies again, dig into some cinnamon apple desserts, and most importantly, bask in all the beautiful colors of changing leaves! This weekend I’m headed down to southern Virginia for an “end of summer” hiking trip, and I’m so excited that in just a few weeks everything will be my favorite shades of red, orange, and yellow! Apple festivals, campfires, and endless autumnal beauty. I’m hype.
Without further ado, here are some of my Fall Essentials!
1. Fall Treats – It wouldn’t be autumn without some warm and delicious treats. I’m thinking hot chocolate, pumpkin muffins, and s’mores for sure! A few recipes I’d like to try: pumpkin scones // s’mores donuts // grownup hot chocolate
2. Autumn Inspired Fashion – All summer I was lost in a sea of neons and pastels, all colors that look terrible on me! Brown is my neutral, so anything warm toned is right up my alley. I can’t wait to deck myself in camel, burgundy, cognac, olive, grey, and sage! Earth tones are my jam! A few fashion favorites: this jacket // this tote // this entire blog
3. Being Comfy – Fall is the perfect time to layer up, cuddle with a loved one (including Netflix) and relax for a while. Some ideas to get comfy: this blanket // this candle!!! I’ve already used mine up! It’s so good, and I normally hate pumpkin scent! // this classic just came out on DVD!
4. Natural (and Autumnal) Beauty – For some reason I’ve been obsessed with finding the perfect burnt orange nail polish. One that’s not too bright, not sparkly, and has that perfect pumpkin spice ~vibe~! If you find one, let me know. Other than that, I’m all about keeping makeup minimal and naturally beautiful. Here are some other fall beauty faves: nude lips // golden lids // defined brows
