GUYS IT’S FALL!

I love everything about fall- sweaters, falling leaves, chilly football games! I swear, it’s like I wait 75% of the year for fall! To me, there’s only two seasons- fall and not fall. I guess if you haven’t gotten the idea yet… I THRIVE IN THE FALL. And to help you guys thrive too, I’ve come up with some of the greatest fall-time goodies I’ve ever come across!

1. BLANKET SCARVES

Don’t you EVER tell me that blanket scarves are one of the greatest things ever. They’re so comfy and adorable. I sound like such a basic bitch… I’m sorry. One thing I love about blanket scarves is that they make last minute outfits work! I mean, you can throw on a white t-shirt and a pair of jeans, grab a blanket scarf, and look like you put so much more effort into your outfit!

2. CREWNECK SWEATSHIRTS

The holiest of sweatshirts. I’m in love with crewnecks year round, but the fall really brings it out! I swear I could live in these things every day. Sometimes I like to pair them with a scarf, denim jacket, and hoop earrings for a messy but presentable look- if that makes sense.

3. THERMOSES

I think this one is pretty self explanatory. How else would you keep your hot chocolate warm when you’re walking to and from classes? I collect cups with plastic straws like it’s my job, so to me thermoses are the fall equivalent. Target and Amazon have so many cute options!

4. CABIN SOCKS

I’m ashamed to say that it took me a little longer to hop onto the trend of cabin socks. But I’ve fallen in love with them. They’re so comfy and warm, PLUS they come in so many cute patterns! I love matching them with my outfits so when I take my shoes off they work as a cute accessory. Am I crazy? Most likely.

5. SHERPA PULLOVER

Anything sherpa is a 10/10 in my book. It’s so soft and warm and perfect for fall! I have so many sherpa blankets and pullovers. Everyone I talk to thinks that the good sherpa pullovers are really expensive, but I got my favorite one for only $10 at Walmart!

6. PURA VIDA BRACELETS

These are a necessity year around, but I especially love stacking their jewelry during the fall months! I’m actually a Pura Vida representative, so I have a discount code! If you’re looking to buy ANYTHING from Pura Vida, click here to save 20%!

Hey guys! Happy Monday! I hope everyone’s had a great summer so far. I missed last Monday’s upload because of the endless chaos at home preparing for my sister’s graduation party.
