My Fall Wish List

As anyone, I always have a wish list! I thought I would share some of the things I have my eye on for the fall season that will also work into the winter. Do you guys have your eye on something particular this fall? Really hoping I can add these items to my closet! Obsessing over them just a bit! :)
 This top is from JCPenny but it is no longer online :( I had saved this picture to my computer a few weeks ago, and I checked my local store and couldn't find it. Bummer! Looks like I will still be on the hunt for a red button up.

Really want some green jeans! These are "Rich and Skinny" and way out
of my price range at $150 but loved the fit of this pair! So I'll be on the hunt for a cheaper pair
Rhinestone Bodycon Dress $24.80 from Forever 21
I could go on because there are so many cute things but these are my top 4 items on my Fall wish list!

Mint & Navy

I absolutely adore this color combination! Mint & navy can be worn during any season and in so many ways! I also am loving pleats! I have seen them everywhere and when I saw this skirt at Forever 21 (Only $13.80) I had to get it! Such a steal and it feels and looks like I paid way more for it! This oversize top is also from Forever 21 and can be worn so many ways but I liked it tucked into this skirt to show off the pleats! I plan on doing another look with this skirt so stay tuned for that! :)

Shirt: Forever 21 $11.80, had awhile but they still sell similar ones
Tank: Forever 21 $3.80
Pleated skirt: Forever 21 $13.80
Silver flats: Isaac Mizrahi for Target $29.99, old
Necklace: Target $6.98 clearance
Bag: Jessica Simpson, gift
I also decided to play around with my makeup. I used navy eyeshadow on top of my black eyeliner and then used a lighter blue liquid eyeliner on the outer half of my eyelid. The rest of the lid I just used a silver color and used white to highlight my brow bone. Since I did something a little more bold on my eyes I decided to stick to a natural lip. It's fun to try different looks so don't be afraid to try new things! Remember you can wash it off if you don't like it! :)

Pink Jeans

I really love colored jeans, I have three pairs (pink, turquoise &red). I want green and purple ones too but I don't want to go overboard and have every color but I might just give in! :) I love how girly this look is! I paired it with flats here but you could totally add heels and dress it up more!

Fun Mani

I have seen so many fun ideas for manicures on Pinterest! I was bored the other day and decided I would try one. I used scotch tape to create the lines. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be and I loved it. Nails are having a big moment right now. They are one of the seasons biggest accessory!
It's not perfect but I'd say not too bad for my first try at it! I used 3 different NYC brand polishes. I really do like this polish. It is only $1.72 a bottle and it is fast-drying. I have also found that it last as long as the more expensive nail polish brands.
From left to right: Water Street Blue, Big City Dazzle, Pier 17
After trying it I can't wait to do more. They are so fun and colorful and there are so many different looks to try! I'm going to start posting more beauty posts on here. I'll still be posting outfits but want bring more to my blog! Thanks for visiting! Have any questions, comment below or you can email me!

Stripes & Skinnies

I love cardigans and skinny jeans! I have way too many of both! Hehe :) This cardigan is actually one of my favorites but I don't wear it very often for some reason! I really like the sleeve length with the cuffs and button detail! What I love about this look is you can also pair it with a pair of boots or flats and it would be just as cute!

Cardigan- Target, $17.99
Tank- Marshall's, $12.99
Jean Leggings or "Jeggings"- Target, $12.48 (clearance)
Nude heels- Forever 21, $19.99

A Southern Fall

This is my second fall here in Texas and let me just say I actually miss Ohio!!! Fall is my favorite season and Ohio is beautiful in the fall! Down here in the Lone Star state it's still hot. High 80s-Low 90s isn't my idea of fall weather but that's the temperatures that we are having right now. Humph! Okay my rant about it is over! Hehe, anyways here's two outfits I have put together that I will be wearing this fall! I'm such a girly girl, I can't help but love wearing dresses & skirts! And disregard the mess in the background! Ah, the boyfriend likes to leave his stuff laying around and I wasn't paying attention to it, sorry!
