Seasonal Selections

Fall 2012 Favorites

1. Red Wine. I love wine all year 'round but there's no denying that fall is one of the best times to enjoy a bottle. I also love seasonal beers like Oktoberfest.

2. Bordeaux Lips. (Shown: Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss in 016 Bordeaux). Why not pair a wine-colored lip with your drink? I love this trend right now!

3. Neutral Nail Polish- Browns, Taupes, Tans. (Shown OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know?). I love wearing neutral nail polishes in the fall. It complements my fair skin beautifully and goes with just about everything.

4. Cozy Sweaters! I love an over-sized turtleneck on chilly fall days. I think it looks so elegant and love how comfortable they are.

5. Scarfs! (Shown: Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse Leopard Scarf. I found mine on eBay). I love a touch of animal print in the fall but just about any scarf gets an A in my book.

6. Knitted Head Warmer. For when it gets extra cool outside, I think these trendy headpieces are adorable. You can purchase the item shown through Etsy by clicking here.

7. Leather Gloves. A must have in classic black and brown.

8. Lennon Style Shades. I'm on board with this vintage-inspired trend. Why pay hundreds when you can get the look for less? I never splurge on sunglasses. I found mine on eBay for less than $10.

9. Dark Wash Skinny Jeans. Black is always a good choice and goes with everything.

10. Yo La Tengo's "Autumn Sweater." When the leaves start to change, this song goes on repeat.

11. "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. My favorite book of all-time. I'm going to read this again after Thanksgiving to gear up for the movie! I recently re-watched the Redford version and I'm getting super excited to see Leo's take on Jay Gatsby!

12. Lace-up Booties. I love a heel but high heels are completely unnecessary and ridiculous for my lifestyle. I am obsessed with booties because they are so comfortable, give me a few inches, keep me warm and go perfectly with my wardrobe.

13. Vintage Chanel Bag. When I got my first paycheck at my first job after college, as a treat to myself, I bought a vintage Chanel bag. It looks similar to the one pictured above. I don't wear it often but fall is my favorite time of the year to work it into my wardrobe.

14. Candles! Pumpkins, leaves, you name it. I appreciate burning seasonal, scented candles during this time of year. It makes the entire house smell amazing!

I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
