Currently Craving: September Swoons

 photo Currently Craving- Sept_zpsmjcdi2m6.jpg

Happy October! I saw something on Twitter the other day that said Happy HalloThanksMas and I was laughing SO hard because it's so true! I love this time of year (even though I miss the summer weather... so conflicted) and all of the fun clothes, accessories and more that come with it. September was such a fun month - lots of Yankees baseball games, my 22nd birthday and the transition between summer and fall. Now that fall is in full swing, I'm so excited to share my favorite products at-first-sight this season! September was a busy shopping month, but I think October will be even busier.. Here's my favorites:

Tory Burch Quilted Shoulder Bag // Plaid Blanket Scarf // Beaded Tassel Earrings // Estee Edit Eye Brightener // Bobbi Brown Lipstick in 'Raspberry Pink' // Essie Gel Polish 'Drop the Gown' // David Yurman Ring // Personalized Luggage Tags c/o // Smashbox Primer // Leopard Flats // Sherpa Throw Blanket // Monogrammed Card Case // White Writing Desk // Fresh Face Cleanser // Quilted J.Crew Vest

Tory Burch Quilted Shoulder Bag: is this not the most beautiful little black bag you've ever seen?! I splurged on this one this season and it just came yesterday... I'm so in love! It's the perfect size bag and I don't think I've ever felt leather as soft - even compared to other Tory bags. If you're looking to splurge on something this season, this is a perfect option!

Plaid Blanket Scarf: you really can't have too many blanket scarves and you definitely need this one in your collection. Seriously; so soft, perfect price and gorgeous monotone colors.

Beaded Tassel Earrings: Bauble Bar always has cute earrings, but these are especially cute for fall! I love the colors and the beading is so fun and different. They're surprisingly not heavy, and definitely a perfect fall statement piece.

Estee Edit Eye Brightener: you may have seen earlier last week I was raving about this stuff! I got it in a VoxBox from Influenster and now I use it every night and morning. It's great for brightening your eyes and any dark circles. It really, really works!

Bobbi Brown Lipstick in 'Raspberry Pink': berry lips are my go to for the fall - I've been eyeing this Bobbi Brown color because it's so bright and pretty!

Essie Gel Polish 'Drop the Gown': as I sit here and stare at my nails that haven't been done since before I left for Italy... UGH. Sitting in the nail salon is so time consuming and although I love the way just-done-nails look, I haven't had any time to go get them done. I'm so glad that Essie has more colors available now in the new(ish) gel collection; I'm going to try this 'Drop the Gown' shade this week and see what I think. I normally get SNS dip and I love it, but for the days that it's just too time consuming I'd love to have a reliable, at-home backup.

David Yurman Ring: I've had my eyes on this ring for sooo long now. Seriously at least two years! It's so gorgeous and I'm dying to splurge on it!

Personalized Luggage Tags: I just LOVE these sparkly, shimmery monogrammed luggage tags SO much! They are from Etsy and the shop owner, Madeleine, is so incredibly sweet - if you're looking for some fun new ways to personalize your luggage, check these out. There's a couple of different options and they're super sturdy! I can't wait until my next trip so I can use these!

Smashbox Primer: I'm starting to feel like I'm the only one who has yet to try this... so it's on the tippy top of my list! I've heard such good things about it already but my mall's Sephora has been out for weeks!

Leopard Flats: not that leopard print isn't always cute, but this season especially - I'm in LOVE. Love love love. I just bought this leopard scarf online and I can't wait to style it with pretty fall shades of burgundy and teal! These flats are so cute and the price is on point, they may be my next pair of shoes! ; )

Sherpa Throw Blanket: if I buy one more blanket, my mom may lose her mind - mom, if you're reading this, sorry but it's happening!! It's getting chillier and I like wrapping myself in 3-4 cozy blankets in every room of my house! It's a necessary purchase. It's happening.

Monogrammed Card Case: I've been using my Kate Spade card case for months (which you've probably seen quite a bit on Instagram) but I love the wine/burgundy color of this Henri Bendel version! It's so affordable AND you can have it monogrammed. One for me, one for everyone on my Christmas list (yes it's October, yes I said Christmas).

White Writing Desk: I've been thinking about re-doing my office space and I think it's way overdo... I've always wanted an x-legged desk and I just found a ton of options I love, but this one's my favorite. Need!

Fresh Face Cleanser: this was the birthday gift I got in September from Sephora. I got to choose between this and a Marc Jacobs eye liner/lipstick sample and I chose this one only because I LOVE Fresh and it's full-sized vs. the Marc Jacobs set! It's my new favorite cleanser - it's so soothing on my skin and smells amazing! If you need a new cleanser, try this one. I love trying new products with a new season and I think this is my go-to cleanser now.

Quilted J.Crew Vest: no one can have too many J.Crew quilted vests. No. One. They're so pretty, so durable and warm and so versatile! I pulled mine out of the back of my closet just the other day and I won't lie, I'm really excited to wear them! This one's available now at Nordstrom - can you guys believe J.Crew is now at Nordstrom?! It's like my two favorite things in the world have collided. Seriously though, what a fun and exciting collaboration!

What are you loving that you eyed/bought in September?

XOXO

  4. I have seen the Smash Box primer everywhere. I need to try it out! I just get so picky about primers, I don't ever venture out my go-to. But maybe I will actually try this one!

    Everything about this post makes me so extremely anxious for low temps down here in Texas! I want to pull out my boots and vests!
