Welcome to September, one of my favorite months! The month the pumpkin spice latte makes its return, the month it’s actually cool enough to wear your light scarves and a light jacket at night.
I have been anxiously waiting for summer to end and that happens THIS. MONTH! (Insert heart eye emojis here.) Although it’s still a bit warm during the days here in Oklahoma I’m going to go ahead and pull out my fall staples. Everyone needs a few fall staples to fall back on every year. Some that are classic and will never go out of style, and some that are new to go with the trends. It can be clothes, it can be skin care (skin needs change with the seasons), or it can be makeup. I’m going to share with you a few of my fall staples, and a few things you will need for fall this year.
My Fall Staples
My favorite fall staple has to be boots. It doesn’t have to be one specific pair, it can be many, many pairs of boots. Knee high boots, ankle booties, or anywhere in-between. My faves this year are these that I just got from Old Navy, and they come in 5 color choices!
A favorite sweatshirt or hoodie is also important to me. I love cooler fall nights, so I have to have a sweatshirt or hoodie that I can sit out on my patio and enjoy my fire pit in. It’s always comfortable no matter the style or design. Comfort is the important factor for me.
I have to change my cleanser, serum and moisturizer when cooler weather hits because my skin goes from combination skin to dry skin. Usually this is the case for everyone. Weather can completely change your skin, so always think about that when the seasons are changing and you’re at Sephora looking for a new moisturizer. This year I am going to use my Air Repair Cleansing Milk (seriously, you have to try this stuff!!!), Ole Henricksen Vitamin C serum, and I’ll start with Aveda Botanical Kinetics Hydrating Lotion and see how my skin reacts. Sometimes I need to change my moisturizer several times before finding the right combo.
Several different warm toned lip colors will be in my purse starting this month. Fall makeup tones have to be my absolute favorite of any season! Dark reds, browns, caramels, dark oranges, sounds perfect doesn’t it? I have already found several that I am in love with and have started to wear already. This NYX shade: Budapest one is life!
What You Need This Fall
Keep up with this year’s fall trends by getting yourself a pair of ankle booties. Peep toed ankle boots are a big thing this year, but closed toed will last you through winter.
A few warm toned lip colors and a fall eye shadow palette. Like I said above, dark reds, caramels, browns, and dark oranges will go along with a lot of the clothes designed for fall style.
Check your skin care routine. If your skin seems to be acting different you will need to switch your products.
A light scarf. Nothing too heavy, but a light scarf is not only cute, but it can keep you warm on those evenings spent sipping wine on the patio of your favorite restaurant.
