Five Fall Favorites

Today I'm sharing five of my favorite items for fall:  1. Trenchcoat, 2. Scarf, 3. Layers, 4. Whipped Berries Lipstick, and 5.  Fall Shopping!

A trenchcoat is an essential wardrobe item in my opinion at any time of year, but especially in the transitional periods like fall and spring.  Here I paired it with fall colors in my maroon pants and plaid scarf.  I have started building a pretty good collection of scarves of the past couple years and I like pulling them out when the weather starts cooling down.

3. Layers!  Since the weather can vary a bunch throughout the day, layers are key.  This time I layered a silk sleeveless blouse (which wrinkled a little by the time I got to take these pictures) with a cropped sweater and long pendant stones necklace.  Then I threw on my plaid scarf and trench for the rainy day.

4.  Mary Kay Whipped Berries Creme Lipstick - love this shade and how creamy it comes on!

5.  Fall shopping!  Fall is definitely my favorite time of year to shop.  I love all of the new vests and coats, plus the boots and booties.  This year I'm looking to replace some of my older cardigans and possibly add another blazer.  I'm definitely looking for a plaid shirt too.  I'm always looking for ways to save money when I'm shopping. Whether I'm shopping online or in store, I always make sure to search for coupons on websites like and  I recently heard about another website that can save you money,  It's a site where you can buy and sell gift cards.  I looked quickly and saw that I could save 12% by purchasing a Macy's giftcard and up to 17.5% at H&M.  It's also be a quick way to make money if you're sitting on giftcards you don't expect to use.
