Currently Craving: September Favorites Under $200


Can 2018 slow down for 5 seconds?! What in the world is going on here?! We officially have three months left until we're celebrating New Years again. I'm baffled over here. Speechless. Don't understand.
While I pick my jaw off of the ground, get to shopping these beautiful favorites from September that are all under $200! Share in my shoe addiction, find out how I'm keeping my tan, see my favorite polish color for fall and more here!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13

1. 'Ciao for Now' Pullover: occasionally I find a tee, sweatshirt or something similar that describes me perfectly and this was most definitely one of them! I loved this the second I came across it! It has sort of a boxy fit and dolman sleeves - it fits TTS, but I went up one size to have a little more of an oversized fit. It's also shorter, so if you prefer longer tops I'd go up a size from your norm!

2. Monogram Waffle Knit Cosmetic Bag: I've been eyeing this cute bag for a while now and good news - it's on sale right now and fully in stock! It sells out a lot so get yours while it's still available! It's also a really great gift to give and fits soo many things in it.

3. Essie 'Stop, Drop & Shop' Nail Polish: considering I get gel manicures, I'm not quite sure why I often buy regular polish shades... But it's usually only when I absolutely love a new shade that I find! This is from the Essie fall 2018 collection and aside from loving the name of it, I am obsessed with the color. Maybe I'll use it in between gel manis? On my toes? Just keep it to stare at?

4. Blue Velvet Bow Mules: every time I see a new pair of shoes that I fall in love with I say to myself, "the last thing I need is a new pair of shoes but I need these!". I can't help it. I just love shoes. These are freakin' stunning and too good to pass up!!

5. Plaid Chenille Throw Blanket: chenille started popping up again last season and I'm so glad it's so popular again this year - it's the sofest, coziest material EVER. And now I've found a plethora of chenille blankets. I'm in love! This plaid style is so pretty and fall-ish, perfect for a living room chair!

6. Jergen's Wet Skin Moisturizer: this has been in a couple of my Currently Cravings over the past few months but it's one of my very favorite products that's definitely worth sharing again and again! I've mentioned far too many times how much of a summer girl I am... I'm not a fan of the cold weather at all. I like fall/winter clothes because they're cozy, and I love Christmas, but other than that I'd be far more content with 85 degrees and constant sunshine (probably should do something about where I live then, huh?). All of that to say, I'm MUCH happier when I'm tan, hah! I've tried quite a few different self tanners to use when it isn't summer and this is my favorite I've used so far. It's so easy to use and apply in the shower and it's the best way to maintain your tan that you worked so hard on all summer. ;) It's seriously a game changer when it comes to self tanning - I'm always worried about being streaky, missing a spot or having weird lines from my tanner and this is the #1 product to use if you're worried about that. LOVE this stuff and will be using it until I'm back in the sunshine, or until I move to a warmer climate.

7. Black Velvet Bucket Bag: give me all of the bucket bags! This style is giving me all the heart eyes lately! This is a perfect fall and winter bag - wear it more casually or dress it up - so versatile, so beautiful and a really great price!

8. Mini Silver Hoops: my never ending search for the best, light-weight earrings for my sensitive AF ears continues... I found these and am in LOVE. You can't even feel them on your ears and they're becoming my favorite, everyday-wear pair of earrings. So beautiful, $49 and look like the real thing!

9. Leopard Pumps: when I was in middle school, I wanted leopard print everything. I distinctly remember being in 6th grade and dragging my mom to Macy's with me to buy me this pair of leopard print flats that my friend had... I wore them SO much even though they killed my pinky toes and I loved them so much that they're in a memory box in my closet to this day!

Leopard print has become the new neutral of the season and I am not mad about it! These pumps are just under $100 and will be your most worn shoe this season.

10. Gingerbread Spice Eye Shadow Palette: take a closer look at these gorgeous colors... Ugh I'm obsessed! Similar to a new pair of shoes, the last thing I need is a new eye shadow palette. But here I am, with this palette sitting in my Sephora cart. There's worse things, right? ;) I have a feeling this will be the go-to for the holidays!

11. Velvet Pumpkin Decor: for someone who protests fall for at least the first few weeks after summer ends, I am in L O V E with these beautiful velvet pumpkins! They've become very popular and are becoming available in way more places - no matter where you get these, try them out as a part of your centerpiece or in your foyer. They're a game changer design-wise and are seriously stunning!

12. Pink Bow Embellished Loafers: here I am, sharing another pair of shoes I just bought that I most definitely did not need! But seriously could you blame me with these beauties?! I'm crossing my fingers that they're comfortable and don't hurt because I will wear them ALL of the time! Stay tuned - I'll update when they arrive at my doorstep!

13. Light Pink Knit Sweater: I've been on the hunt for some cozy sweaters this season that I can wear around the house, to run errands in, or dress up for dinner. I'm kind of picky with sweaters because if they itch me in the slightest I can't take it - anyone else or is that just me?!

This comes in sooo many colors and incredibly cozy. I'm very happy to report that it isn't at all itchy either! It's $44 but on sale right now, and goes on sale pretty frequently so keep a look out for that and get it in your favorite color(s) while it lasts!

XOXO -A
