Since Emily C. has been pretty busy recently, (um hello, she's a mom, works a full time job, and is going to school! I really don't know how she does it), I'm going to start off with a few things that I'm loving this month and she's going to share her must haves next week :)
So here you go friends! I was able to find a cheaper version for a few of the items listed below and was sure to include where you can find them (you know how I love my looks for less!).
Marshmallow Fireside Candle- This is the best smelling candle! After my friend Sarah recommended this candle to me, I knew I had to give it a try. I now understand what all the hype was about and why she buys this candle in bulk! Trust me, smell this candle and I assure you that there is no turning back. Welcome to the dark side my friends. You can find it here.
Essie's 'Dress to Kilt' Fall Nail Polish- This is the best red nail color for fall. Its not too bright or too dark, so it works well for every day wear.
Metallic Temporary Tattoos- The adult version of the colorful tattoos you used to put on as kids, these are the coolest things! Put them on your wrists, fingers, or wherever to get the tattoo look without the commitment. I'm especially loving the metallic arrows and infinity signs. Seriously, how fun are these! You can buy them here.
Double Back Pearl Earrings- Because what's better than one pearl? Two pearls of course! These have become my favorite earrings to wear this season. Classy and stylish, what could be better? I purchased mine for $7.99 here!
Sequined Camera Strap- I am absolutely loving these sequined camera straps from Sam and Kate Designs! Before being locked indoors from the cold, spend as much time outdoors as possible. Grab your friends and go out on a hike or visit a corn maze, just remember to take as many pictures as possible!
Market Tote- I adore this market tote from Amanda Catherine Designs. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, what better bag to carry your groceries in and be saving the planet at the same time in? It's a win, win.
Turtle Necks- These turtle necks are great for layering underneath vests and ponchos. They're thin and light weight, plus the stripes add a preppy look to any outfit. J. Crew sells them, but Old Navy has a cheaper version as well!
L.L. Bean Boots- Keep your toes toasty in these L.L. Bean boots! They are a classic fall staple in any closet! My favorite style is the 8" and they are a bit of a splurge costing $109, but like I said, they're classic and won't be going out of style anytime soon. You can buy them through the L. L. Bean site or Ebay.
Dark Lips- My love of lipstick only grows during the fall. Plums and dark reds are flattering on any skin tone and its a quick and easy way to look like you spent a ton of time on your appearance (when it really only took you about 30 seconds to look this pulled together!). My favorite is CoverGirl's Lip Perfection Lipstick in Euphoria. This shade looks great on my little sister who has a dark complexion and on me who is the fairest of them all.
'I Woke Up Like This' Mug- The cold weather months is the perfect time to pour some apple cider, hot chocolate, or coffee into this adorable mug and curl up to a good book. You can find this lovely mug from Charm and Gumption, along with some other cute mugs and prints from her store!
What's a trend or item you're loving this month? As always, I'd love to hear it!
