FALL HAUL

YAY for fall and DOUBLE YAY for fall fashion. A couple weeks back I posted about what I thought was the backbone of fall fashion for this season. Some of the things I already had, and others were just items I loved. I have done some very unnecessary shopping over the past couple weeks for a collective mini haul to share with y’all. Everything will be linked and I am hoping to style these things soon!

Fall Fashion Is Back

One of my favorite times of the year is finally here – fall.

Growing up in Texas fall was never a huge part of my life because it is always hot there. But since moving to Michigan that mentality has completely changed. Everyone here is obsessed with this season and I totally understand why. The changing of the trees is amazing and going to the cider mills is essentially a lifestyle. I have fully adapted to Michigan fall’s. I do all of the “basic” seasonal things, and they are all great. Even with all of these great fall traditions to experience up north there is still something I love above all others – fall fashion. Back in Texas we had to pretend it was below eighty degrees, and we would pull out our boots and sweaters anyways. Here you can ACTUALLY dress accordingly with the weather and make a statement. Which as the end of the day is what matters.

Enough with the backstory – this season’s fall fashion has me swooning. I haven’t been this excited to wear a sweater vest since I shopped at Abercrombie & Fitch. That’s just one of my fall fashion staples for 2020. Here is what I have been loving (whether I have it or not) and where you can get your hands on some of my favorite pieces.

Sweater Vest

This was the first staple I thought of so naturally it has to come first. This is best transitional piece there is; part sweater & part tank. Channel your inner preppy school girl with this sweater from ASOS.

Leather Leggings

Yes, leggings – not pants. While I love leather pants, realistically, you will probably be wearing leggings more. These are insanely flattering on every body type and are perfect with an oversized t-shirt or a cropped button down. These Aritzia leggings come in brown or black.

Graphic Hoodie

Graphic t-shirts are the backbone of comfy, put together outfits. With the warmer weather coming to an end, graphic hoodies are going to be the perfect thing for feeling complete when I am not going anywhere. Shop hoodies like this from Travis Scott’s McDonald’s merch collab.

Suede Boots

I am never one to go for suede because I am waaay too clumsy for that material; I ruin it so fast. But, boots like this are quickly changing my opinion. I love these boots and even though I don’t have them, they will be an addition to my closet in the near feature. Get this pair at Zara.

Oversized Leather Jackets

The bigger, the better. A few years ago oversized denim was the “thing”, and now oversized leather is back and better than ever. Pair this with a dress, your favorite workout set to run errands in, or even with pajamas. Literally everything. Shop more like this on Zara.

Pinch Waist Denim

This summer and still now, denim is all about the baggier the better. But sometimes you can get lost in the fabric. These pinch waist jeans from Agolde are exactly what I have been looking for; distressed, straight, long, and they cinch at the waist to complete any look.

Mock Neck Tops

Fall was absolutely made for mock necks. They are the ideal transition to a turtleneck, which will forever be my favorite winter style. Shop this shirt on Aritzia.

Bra Tops

Cold weather is here but crop tops have not gone anywhere. I have been obsessing over the the bra top look; especially with a matching cardigan. Zara has been the perfect place to look for these pieces so get them before they are gone – and before it actually gets too cold to wear them.

Animal Prints

I have never been too crazy about animal prints. But right now, they are the perfect way for me to spice up my very minimalistic style. I am obsessed with this jacket on Revolve by For Love & Lemons, and I am sure you can find more like this on other stores such as Zara, ASOS and more.

Chunky Sole Boots

SOMEONE, please buy these so I can live through you. This pair is from Storets, and it an amazing dupe for my favorite pair of Bottega Veneta boots. They only go up to a size eight and are going quick, so grab them ASAP.


Back-To-School Quarantine Essentials

No matter where you are of what grade you are in, school looks a little bit different this year. Primary and secondary education as well as universities are holding classes in a multitude of ways. Regardless of the situation, most people have lots of classes from home. While normally this would be every students dream to have school from home, it does drastically change your routine. From the clothes you wear to the tools you use, it can be difficult to get back to a “normal routine” when no setting will be a true normal. I have been back at school for a few weeks adapting to the new way of life. Here are some things that have helped me adapt that may help you too.

Sleeping Mask

Some days I just need a little more sleep than others. I love the Slip mask.

Planner

This is a MUST for organizing online classes. Everything seems so “easy” when it is online since it is right at your fingertips, but some things still tend to get away. This planner is the one I use is from Target.

Square Wine Glasses

These were a want that turned into a need. Definitely a self-care essential more than a back to school, but if you are in a college town 10/10 recommend (via Crate & Barrel).

Fresh Flowers

To make your inside living space a little more lively.

A Journal

Times are crazy, so right down what’s going on. I love the 5 Minute Journal as mentioned in my Digital Content You Need To Consume post.

A Workout Subscription

Yes, there are some great videos on Youtube, but a subscription service gives you something forward to look forward to. As mentioned in my Home Workouts Are Here To Stay post, I love Melissa Wood Health.

Sweatsuit

Want to feel put together while still comfortable? A sweatsuit is always the answer. Shop them form Aritzia, Boys Lie, MadHappy, Pangaia and more.

A Shower Routine

This sounds weird, but has been my best form of resetting during anxious and stressful times. Find a routine for you to unwind, relax and take time for yourself. School can still be stressful even though it is online!

A Workspace

As comfortable as it is, your bed isn’t a place to work. Getting out of bed for class is key to keeping a “routine”.
