October Beauty Favorites

Another month has passed by which means it’s time to share another roundup of beauty products that I’ve been loving lately. Last month was a busy one with a trip to Sweden thrown in the mix, so it’s been all about ease. Things that are foolproof and simple to wear, even if I’m short on time or out an about all day. Here’s what I loved most in October:

Changing Leaves, Changing Fabrics

Now that we’re a few days into November, we’re fully immersed in autumn. The mornings are crisp, the days are short and the leaves have gone from green to a gorgeous array of red, yellow and orange.

I use the changing leaves as a signal to switch out the fabrics in my wardrobe—embracing the new season by putting away the linens and lightweight cottons, in favor of cozier fabrics. And this dress, already a firm favorite, is front and center in my wardrobe.

The Most Versatile Piece in My Winter Wardrobe

The most versatile item in my winter wardrobe is an unexpected one—a houndstooth coat. With it’s streamlined tailoring, velvet details and blue, black and red pattern it’s already become the most reached for item in my closet. It looks lovely dressed up or down and can be worn in so many situations.

On a recent trip to Sweden, I inadvertently proved the versatility of this jacket by wearing three very different looks, all topped with this coat. Here’s how I styled this coat three ways while on our jaunt to Sweden:

My Favorite Kind of Necklace

My favorite kind of necklace is one with meaning. I love the idea of wearing something that reminds me of a special moment or in the case of this necklace, a special person.

You may have noticed throughout the years that I love a monogram necklace. It’s my little way of keeping those that I love with me when I go out and about. My newest one might just be my favorite.

Apple Picking Outside of London

I’ll admit, I’ve googled ‘apple picking near London’ more times than I can count over the last few years, so to finally get out and do it felt wonderful!

This farm ticked off so many autumnal boxes. Squash, pumpkins and plenty of locally-baked goods were on offer at their store, but of course, the star of the show was the apple orchard. Sitting upon a hillside with views of fields, cows, and plenty of trees with beautifully changing leaves, it was such a sight for city eyes.

September Beauty Favorites

It’s been a while since I last posted about a few beauty favorites, but I’ve gotten some really good ones since then. I always look for items that are easy to use and will only buy things that have genuinely impressed me.

It takes a lot of searching for products that fit the bill, so I thought I’d share my most-loved ones with you each month.

Here are my picks for September:

My Autumnal Color Palette

It’s so helpful to think of a few colors to stick to each season. Akin to my strategy in packing a suitcase, you want to minimize items you buy (or pack) and maximize the outfit options you have. Sticking to a few colors helps to ensure that any piece you pull out will probably go with at least a few other items.

My autumnal color palette can essentially be summed up by the colors in this dress—a few of my year-round favorites (I see you, blush pink!) plus a couple of new additions too!

The Gal Meets Glam Kaye Dress

Ever since their launch in April, I’ve been wanting to add a couple of Gal Meets Glam Collection dresses to my wardrobe. Julia Engel is a blogger I’ve followed for years and it’s so exciting to see someone work so hard to see their goals realized.

As you’d expect, all the dresses are simply stunning. Like Julia’s style, they’re feminine, elegant and timeless. With so many of the designs being subtle nods to the past, I love that these are dresses that will never go out of style, including this one.

How I'm Shopping Strategically for Fall

Earlier this year, I realized that I was spending more that I should on clothes and that many of said clothes didn’t pair together all too well! Fed up with feeling like I had nothing to wear despite regularly adding to my closet, I decided think more intentionally when adding new pieces to my wardrobe.

Here’s how I’ve started shopping (and dressing) more strategically for fall:
