Favorite Fall Things

November is here and I'm switching things up with a compilation of favorite photos and things I'm inspired by this fall. Instead of the usual personal style photos, how about a mix of shopping, beauty, personal style, and travel?

On my mind right now: the upcoming Isabel Marant for H&M collection, favorite fringe boots as seen on my Instagram, Maybelline Color Elixir™ lip gloss for creating a bold holiday season lip, a double denim look that never made it onto the blog until now, and memories from my recent trip to Germany.

Isabel Marant for H&M lookbook and wish list

The Isabel Marant for H&M collection launches in stores and online on November 14, and my growing wish list is just about ready. I've been saving up for this since September, and clearly, I've gone overboard selecting my must-haves. My strategy come shopping day? You'll find me shopping the Kid's department for some of the knits, slouchy boots, and embellished denim.

Above, I've been pairing these Wet Seal fringe ankle boots (as seen on Wet Seal's Instagram and on my Instagram) with my floral denim, and below, a peek at how I got glam for the weekend with Maybelline's Color Elixir™ lip colors. 

Style notes: my leopard print cardigan and polka dot blouse are by Merona, and of the three lip colors I received courtesy of Maybelline, I'm wearing Signature Scarlet, which is pictured on the right on the mirrored tray.

The bright pink color on the left is Fuchsia Flourish, and the one in the middle is a purplish pink called Raspberry Rhapsody. Here's another look at me wearing the Signature Scarlet shade.

Since I don't wear a red lip often, this pigmented gloss/balm hybrid was a foolproof way for me to ease into the bold lip trend for fall. It's a change from my usual sheer pink lip gloss, and I appreciate its ample shine and light, non-sticky texture. (Don't you hate it when your hair sticks to your lip gloss?) I was drawn to the clever lipstick-esque packaging, and the light fragrance reminds me of French soap. I look forward to sporting a glossy and bold lip for the holidays, so now the search is on for hairstyle inspiration and festive frocks...

I recently wore this denim on denim ensemble for a casual day of running around town for art supplies, fashion magazines, and fall coats. It epitomizes what I love about fall style: soft flannel shirts, layers, and comfortable denim.

Switching gears to travel! I'm still amazed by the stunning scenery from my time in Germany, and I'm reliving my most memorable vacation moments through these photos. Here are some more highlights of the small German villages I visited, as captured by my trusty Casio point-and-shoot.
