Fall 2018 Starter Kit


Are YOU ready for Fall?!?!?

Yes, I know…its not technically Fall yet, and here in Austin, TX, it won’t even feel like Fall until sometime around Halloween, but that doesn’t stop this Texas girl from loving ALL THINGS FALL!

With just a little over 2 weeks until the season changes, I know a lot of ladies are getting in the “Fall Spirit” and some just need a little inspiration!

I’ve created a “Fall Starter Kit”; a list of 10 Autumn Staples and Trends that I think can inspire ANYONE to get ready for the MAGIC that is Fall!




1.) Autumn Scented Candles and Melties

If you live in the South like me, having some yummy, Autumn scents in your home can help create that “Fall Feeling” even if it doesn’t quite feel like it outside yet! Just a little “Pumpkin Spice” or “Falling Leaves” can really set a cozy, Autumn tone in your home!  I’ve tagged one here for you!

It’s no secret that the mid 90’s are resurfacing this year in the fashion world, and back pack purses are definitely making a come back! From small and trendy to big and practical,  there are PLENTY of options for everyone to rock a back pack purse this Fall! You can find one similar here.


4.) Fall Lifestyle Tees

Who doesn’t love a good Lifestyle tee?! And what better way to express your love for Fall than to literally wear your feelings on your sleeve?! hehe 😉

You can style them as casual, cozy, or trendy as your personality desires! I may be a little biased because I am a Lifestyle tee Designer, but I can tell you that these babies have been trending the last few years and aren’t going anywhere! You can get this Lifestyle tee and others like it here.


5.) Ankle Booties

Ankle Booties have been trending for some time now, so much so that they even started making them for Summertime with cute cutouts! The good news is, depending on the climate where you live, you CAN still wear those until your tootsies get too cold. You can style them with a cute Lifestyle tee or dress them up a fun blazer! Here are some cute ones!


6.) Fall Scent

Yes, I am one of those girls that like to have different perfumes for the different seasons of the year.. HA!

In the warmer months I like more light, fruity perfumes and body mists and I save the deep, richer scents for the colder months! This is particular perfume is my go to Fall scent and you can get it here!


7.) Cozy Blanket

Girl, get yourself a cozy blanket! There is just something about Fall that makes me want to curl up, drink a cup of coffee or tea, and watch a movie or read a book… or blog…. 😉 You can find one similar to this here.


8.) Fall Themed Mug

Now that you have your cozy blanket, make yourself a nice warm cup of coffee in your cute Fall Mug (maybe even add an extra dollop of whipped cream.. I promise I won’t tell…), and watch a movie with your bestie! You can get this mug and others like it here.


9.) Utility Jacket

Oh, the versatility of a Utility Jacket! They are the perfect chilly-to-cold transitional piece of outwear! You can find one similar here.


10.) Nail Polish

Numbered are the days of hot pink and sailboat nail art. It’s time to bust out ALL THE NEUTRALS! Now, don’t let that stop you from having some fun nail art that will give you the “Fall Feels”. 🙂



If you weren’t in the Fall mood before you read this, I bet you are now!! 🙂
