6 fall items under $100

Fall clothing is all about simplicity, layers, and bold colors. I love big sweaters and colorful jackets so I put together some fall tops and jackets I’m really into right now. Fall clothing is something you should always invest in. My fall clothes tend to last longer than my summer clothes because they are durable. I still have jackets from a few years ago that are in great shape. All of the items are cute but I’m really into the ModCloth faux leather jacket, the loft jeans, and the pink Boden sweater.

I love wearing my leather jackets with huge scarves. It’s the perfect casual look for any occasion. I have this scarf from Primark I’m obsessed with and it’s so warm and fuzzy. Everyone in Boston seems to feel the same way because I’ve seen so many women wearing it. Which picks do you like? Let me know in the comments below.

I love writing my currently craving series because 1. I want every single thing I put on the list and 2. It makes me SO happy to start a new season and find new fashion trends. Right now I really want a shearling coat like this one from Coach. You would assume shearling is heavy and weighs down your shoulders but this coat is the complete opposite. It’s very light and warm, perfect for winter in Boston. I kind of want to buy a silk pajama top like this one from the J.Crew fall collection. People always gravitate towards dark colors during the fall but I like the Warm Almond color the most. I’m not sure if I can pull the look off but it doesn’t hurt to try.

I have one cape from Asos and I want to add another so it won’t be so lonely in my closet. This plaid blanket cape from The Gap might be the perfect addition to my fall collection. I love that the cape comes with a belt so I don’t have to constantly adjust it.  I need to buy all new shoes for this season, Sole Society has an affordable selection of fall booties. When I buy fall/winter shoes I wear them until they break. That’s not really a bad thing because it’s money well spent. I really like the tan ankle booties in taupe. Lastly, I’m eyeing these  Kristin Cavallari slides in tan! Which one do you guys like best? Tell me and I might end up buying it – LOL!

I love that in-between time when it feels like summer is never going to end. But it’s also annoying when you can’t figure out what to wear because you already started buying cardigans and new jeans. Loft recently had a sale so I picked up some cute sweaters that work for this weird weather. I bought this tasseled tunic sweater and a crochet striped sweater. My jeans and shoes are from Zara.  I’m normally a straight leg jean type of girl but during the summer they were becoming a pain to wear.

The thing I really love about simple looks is how comfortable you are. I also feel more like myself when I’m dressed like this. When I was younger I cared about how I looked when I would go out and I would always want to impress the crowd. Now I could care less about what people think about my outfit and how I look. I don’t get dressed for anyone but myself and I love it. Self-confidence is everything and once you feel comfortable in your skin you’ll be ok. Anyway, I hope you guys have a great week!!!

En Route to brunch

forever 21 dressforever 21 dressforever 21 dressforever 21 dressforever 21 dressLet me start this post off by saying I love a good weekend brunch. I live for a great breakfast and some hot coffee (with almond milk of course). For such a tiny person I know how to eat and I have no shame in that. Sometimes I’ll even eat a snack before my meal or while I’m preparing dinner. You get it I love food… I wanted to share a few of my favorite brunch places in Boston for all of the readers who aren’t from this area. I personally like going to the South End for brunch.

My favorite spot is South End Buttery on Shawmut Ave. Their garlic parm fries are the best thing I have ever tasted in my life. The whole atmosphere of the restaurant is very relaxing and photos of dogs are placed throughout the space. The weekends are very hectic so reserving a spot for brunch is necessary. Tremont 647 is another spot I love. Their brunch and dinner are absolutely delicious. Every time I go here I’m never disappointed. Also, they have a tasty fried chicken meal my boyfriend and I are obsessed with.

One weekend I tried to eat at Stephi’s on Tremont and it was full. So I crossed the street and had brunch at Metropolis. Since then I’ve grown to love the place and the diner like feel it has going on. *side note* Can I fill you guys in on something? So a few weeks ago I tried to use this face wash and moisturizer, I won’t say the brand but my face broke out TERRIBLY! If you find a beauty routine and products don’t ever switch it up. For about a year I’ve used Glossier cleanser and coconut oil I get from Amazon. Anyways… I would love to meet people who are obsessed with brunch like me? What are some of your favorite brunch spots around the U.S or wherever you may be?!

Two weeks until September and it’s so crazy to think how fast the summer months have gone by. Designers have released their fall campaigns and websites have started selling fall clothes. I’m excited to shop for new leather booties and chunky knit sweaters. I really like the Fendi ankle booties the most. They’re casual and look super comfortable. I’m really starting to fall in love with Need Supply Co.  Their website is so simple and clean and the items they sell really stand out to me. Their new fall arrivals are gorgeous too! What are some of your favorite place to shop during the fall? I love Zara, Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic and H&M.  Check out some of my favorite pieces below. Hope you enjoy!
