Currently Craving: Shades of Pink + Early Fall Favorites


It's the end of September - say whaaat?! Up until last weekend, it still was 90 degrees and felt like summer but when I woke up yesterday and went outside, it was breezy and the leaves were falling in the wind AND the colors all started to change overnight. Kind of crazy how fast and random it happened, but I'm loving this cooler weather! I already miss the warm sunshine of summer but this girl needs to get some use out of the 45886496 cardigans she bought this season! Ha! I have done a lot - probably too much - shopping this month, but this months Currently Craving has all the fall feels. Here's 12 things you need to get your hands on this season:

*affiliate links

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12

1. Gray Ruffle Sleeve Pullover: this is the coziest pull-over AND it's only $20 right now! There's a few colors to choose from and it's one of those "I'm going to live in this" types of tops... You know, the one that you wear a million times and every time you take it out of your clean laundry pile, it goes RIGHT on! I can't be the only one! ;) You could easily dress this up a bit with a pair of black jeans and block heels too!

2. Velvet Bow Crossbody: I've been very iffy about this bag for the past few weeks... Now it comes in this smaller size (it's also under $200!) and this color is everywhere this fall! I fell in love with the little bow detail and that it's velvet! If this isn't your color, they have it in a pretty pink and now that they have it in multiple sizes, it also comes in the absolute prettiest shade of velvet gray.

3. Marchesa Bands: these beauties are new arrivals from the latest Everly Jewelry fall collection and they are stunning. The best part about Everly's jewelry is how high quality each piece is and they're SO affordable and have the best deals! They have the best customer service too - and you can even request to see a customized stack on one of their models before ordering to see if you like your picks together. Their stackable deals are always amazing and if you just want to treat yourself or get a head start on some gift shopping, I HIGHLY recommend these beauties! Their rose gold rings are my favorite!

4. Pink Bow Slides: tell me you've seen a cuter pair of pink slides! These are $25 (!!!) and the sizes are going fast every time they get re-stocked. They are the cutest and fit TTS. I know I'll get use out of them in the spring too, but I'm loving this shade of pink for fall too! You cannot beat $25 - grab your size while you can - I'll update on Facebook/Twitter whenever some of the sizes get re-stocked! #snagem

5. Plaid Scarf: another one of those things you'll regret not buying once it sells out! It's already been re-stocked once, and I'm sure it's going to sell out just as fast this time around. The colors are beautiful together and there is *no* such thing as too many scarves in the fall.

6. Essie 'Knee High Life': so far, this seems like it'll be my go-to color this fall! I always gravitate toward one or two shades each season... Usually my fall color is 'Bahama Mama' and this one is similar, but it also comes in a gel polish which is great to have and bring to the nail salon! Essie's fall collection is always the prettiest!

7. Gold Pumpkin Decor: buy 5 or 6 of these and use them as table decor - BOOM you're decorated for fall. ;) These are sooo pretty and there's a few sizes you can mix and match with! I bought one in the store last week (one? not sure why I thought that would be enough LOL) and loved how it looked on my coffee table so I bought 4 more! Now that it feels like fall I'm finally excited to decorate for it!

8. Pumpkin Apple Candle: I burn this candle all of the time and way more than any other scent! It's my absolute favorite - they're on sale for 2 for $24 right now so stock up!

9. Travel Makeup Bag: finally - the perfect sized makeup bag to travel with! Some may call it over-packing, I call it being prepared. ;) Kidding, I totally over-pack my makeup and this fits all of it! This brand has a whole line of travel bags that would make for great gifts also.

10. 2018 Planner: it's already September and I'm on the hunt for next years planner. I always try different ones and there's been one or two I've really liked, but none I've found and loved. This years hasn't worked for me - I force myself to use it to stay organized but in my opinion, you need a planner that makes things easier for you! I'm trying this one right now and so far, so good. It has a monthly overlook and for each day it has half of a page of space to write in. Everyone is different with how they like to stay organized and how their brains see things so finding a planner set up that helps you stay organized is not always easy! This one is from Target and it's $20 - worth a shot right? Fingers crossed!

11. Chenille Cardigan: I bought this during the LOFT sale last week and it came in yesterday... I wish I had a picture of my face when I first felt it! It is THE absolute softest cardigan I have ever felt/owned/seen. Ever. It comes in this pretty blush/mauve pink and a golden chartreuse too - it's still 40% off and ALL sizes are available so I'm thinking of grabbing the other color! It comes to $35!

Also - notice the slide slits in this cardigan - I've been gravitating toward cardigans with this detail more because it's super flattering, especially compared to cardigans that don't have slits and just fits straight around. Does that make sense? Not to say that that style isn't still great, but something about the side slits and how it makes a cardigan like this fall is SUPER flattering, even if you have a bigger chest (raising my hand). You feel my pain. Ha! But either way, it's very beautiful on.

12. Laneige Lip Mask: I just got this to review c/o Influenster and so far, SOO good. I've been reading reviews on tons of lip care products because my lips get chapped very easily and even more so in the colder months. I've been using this lip mask for 5 days now, and it's incredible! You put it on at night right before bed and every morning after using it you can 100% see and feel a difference. I have barely had chapped lips since I've used it! I'm going to keep using it every day and report back after a few weeks - but so far it looks like it could become one of those holy grail must have beauty products! Fingers crossed. :)

Anything specific you're loving this fall? Please let me know I'm not the only one who canNOT stop shopping during this time of year, lol!
