Hello Fall!

Happy First Day of Fall!

To be honest, summer is my favorite season, but these past few days I've been waiting patiently anxiously for it to finally feel like fall. I want to be able to wear cute sweaters and boots without sweating. It's been nice and cool in the morning, but by the time noon rolls around, it might as well be the middle of July.

In my mind, new season means new clothes. More importantly new boots. I practically live in my boots during the fall and winter, so I've been looking for a new pair.

I found out that Target has some awesome boots!

Mossimo Kyla Buckle Boot

Merona Kourtney Tall Boots

Merona Kimberley Riding Boots

I like the height of the Buckle Boot and these could definitely replace an old pair of mine. I found these when MakeupByTiffanyD showed them in one of her videos. But I'm leaning more towards one of the taller boots because I never had a pair that tall before. Decisions, decisions.

Pinterest Inspired Outfit: Leather Jacket and Chevron Dress

So I found this look on Pinterest and right away thought I could recreate it with some of the items in my own closet.

Big thanks to my sister for taking these pictures for me!

I had this leather jacket for a while that I bought at Marshalls.  I recently purchased the chevron dress from Kohls.  I wanted a dress like this for a while and was so happy to finally found this one.  

The shoes are from a brand called Connie, which I bought from a shoe outlet store a few years ago.

August Favorites

I can't believe it's already September. I love summer- it's my favorite season, but I'm really looking forward to the fall and the leaves changing, pumpkin picking, wearing sweaters. I could go on.

August was a great month though. Probably my busiest month of the summer, but it was beyond amazing.

Some of my August favorites:

1. Traveling: I have previous posts on my two vacations I took this month, one to Florida and one to Nashville.

2. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey: I heard about this from Leighannsays, a YouTuber who makes videos about beauty and fashion. I put this on just about everyday. Sometimes I'll put the balm stain on first and then another lip product over it.

3. Maybelline's The Rocket Mascara: While in Florida, I had to buy a new mascara. My old one just wasn't doing it anymore, so I bought this and I am in love with this mascara.  I got the waterproof version. Sometimes waterproof mascaras bother my eyes, but this one doesn't.

4. Instagram: I used to just like Instagram, but now I'm obsessed with it! Hands down probably my favorite app of all time. I love taking pictures and editing them. It's so much fun. Here's some of my favorites pictures I took this month.
