Happy October everyone! This is probably everybody's favorite month. Am I right? At least that's what I keep seeing on Pinterest and Instagram. I am in complete agreement. The promise of cooler weather is always a welcomed one!

Here are some random odds and ends on my beginning to Fall so far...

1. Shoes. I've gone a little crazy with them! I keep adding more to my closet, and I keep wanting more. Case in point:

These two are next on my list, but I can't decide which I like better. Thoughts?

2. Wearing basic items again and again. I'm sure you ladies have noticed these! As hard as I try to rotate all of the pieces in my wardrobe, I can't help but come back to what's easy, flattering, and obviously that I love.

White Topshop skirt, Blue bag, Metallic pumps. 
I can't stop, and probably won't stop wearing them through Fall. 

Express Barcelona camisoles in white and black. 
Great basic! They are made Fall-worthy by wearing a blazer or jacket on top. I can't recommend them enough. 

3. I wanted to report back on some recent beauty purchases, as seen here:

* The Maybelline palette is good, but I wouldn't say it's anything too special. The colors are neutral, which makes them extremely easy to work with. The color payoff on most of them is decent, with the exception of the lighter shades. They come across as a bit chalky. Overall, if you already own plenty of similar shades from other brands, you don't need this. Common sense alerted me to that before buying it, but I wanted to try it for myself.

* The NARS dual intensity eyeshadow in Dione is gorgeous! I'm very happy with it and have been wearing it on the weekends. It glimmers and shines like no other. I like it so much that I want more, which is always a good sign (or bad for my wallet).

* The NARS illuminator is also really beautiful. I've been mixing it with my lotion on rubbing it on my arms and legs for a subtle sheen. I also dab a tiny bit on my cheekbones, then top with a powder highlight to set it. Again, a stunning product that's definitely worth treating yourself.

4. Nettie is keeping me on my toes, but I love her so much!

How has the beginning of Fall been for you? 


  1. the print flats I need omg :)


  2. You've made some excellent closet additions lately! The shoe choices are perfect and of course you know I can't live without my Barcelona camis. I love those burgundy shoes- both pairs! I am an ankle strap kind of person because they stay on my feet better. But you seem like a pumps kind of person so I feel like you would like those better! Can't wait to see what you get. :)

  3. Love it! Those shoes are all fab. I think I like the wine colored pair without the strap better. That puppy is too sweet. I totally remember that stage with ours though. I swear he tried to eat everything....

  4. I can't get over the prettiness of those Chanel flats.

  5. I'm in love with all 3 of your recent shoe purchases - each one of them is so beautiful - you chose well!

    Good to know that the Maybelline palette isn't really worth it - the neutral palettes are always so tempting but I don't actually *need* any more LOL!

    Napping Nettie is adorable!

  6. There are so many super beautiful pieces here. I am especially in love with the first shoes. They are perfection and need to somehow make their way in to my life.

  7. Thank you for the feedback ladies! Nettie slept though the night! So thankful. Also, I think I may actually get both sole society shoes since one is more wine colored and the other is a true red. I just can't decide so maybe I just need to order both to see them in person. Happy Friday! I hope you all are doing well :)

  8. I am loving your shoe collection! I've heard great things about that Nars eyeshadow...makes me want to try it for myself :) Ok, that puppy is so adorable! I want to cuddle her!


  9. Love all those shoes - and that puppy is adorable!!

  10. Definitely the red d'orsay pump - and your pup is adorable!

  11. I'm still crushing your Chanel flats! I've been loving Sole Society shoes lately - classic and great price. But none are as cute as that puppy!!
