Infinity scarves are my leftover cold weather favorite from last year. With the wind here, wearing a regular scarf can be a challenge. It’ll come undone and be swooping around you as you’re walking down the street. Circle scarves have solved that problem. And I never have to worry about the end of my scarf getting zipped up into my jacket…as it tends to do when I’m half asleep and going out the door to work. I have a few infinity scarves leftover from last year, but I’m sure I’ll end up getting a few more.
I’ve been trying to get into wearing lipstick more often. The only problem is that the lipstick I buy smudges or rubs off after barely an hour of wear. I’ve heard some good things about Mac lipstick, so I may be adding some of their colors to my make up collection.
Just like the circle scarf, headbands are a new staple to my cold weather wardrobe. My friend Meagan gave me one last year, and I’ve been sold ever since. My hair is very fine, so when I wear a hat of any kind, it immediately conforms to that shape. Basically whatever effort I put into my hair that morning is completely ruined by a hat. And in Chicago with all the walking I need to do, having something warm on your head is pretty essential. Thus, these headbands are perfect for me. Keeps my head warm while not messing up my hair. I highly recommend them. I just bought two more from H&M when they were having a mega sale over the weekend.
I bought a pair of black Minnetonka knee-high boots last year for $5 and they’re ridiculously comfy. I would love to add some ankle booties or just the regular moccasins to my collection. I had some moccasins from Target, but they’re basically destroyed from way too much wear. Clearly I need to replace them!
And finally, what’s fall without something pumpkin related? I just bought a little pumpkin last night. Not sure if I’ll carve it, but the moment I saw it at the grocery store last night, I needed to have it. It was small, perfectly round, and had a big stem. It’s a magazine-worthy pumpkin, I tell ya! But I need some pumpkin candles in my life. All the ones I currently have smell like Christmas, which smells amazing, but it’s just…not the right time! Not yet.
What are some of your fall must-haves?
