My Top 5 Fall Nailpolishes

Today I wanted to share with you the 5 nail polish colors I often reach for in the fall. I tend to gravitate more towards rich, dark colors instead of the brighter colors I opt for in the warmer months.
Purples, reds, and burgundies really complement a lot of the colors in my fall clothing.
1. Merino Cool // Essie   2. Close your Eyes // ORLY   3. Terra Mauve // ORLY   4. Tweed // Avon 
5. No Text Red // Sinful Colors
Which of these colors is your favorite? What are your favorite nail polishes in your collection for fall? Leave a comment letting me know :)

Get The Look: September NYLON Magazine Cover

Today I have a tutorial for you that is inspired by Aubrey Plaza's makeup on the cover of the September issue of NYLON. I wanted to make my look a little bit softer so that it would be more wearable, especially if you have fairer skin like me. If you want the same intensity that she has, just build up the colors a little bit more. Overall I was really happy with how this turned out and I would love to do more recreations of magazine looks so if you would like to see more be sure to leave a comment letting me know :)

My Fall Fashion Favorites

Fall is hands down my favorite season. The cooler temperatures, pumpkin flavored everything, the gorgeous leaves, and of course the clothes. As much as I love the effortlessness of throwing on a sundress and calling it a day, there is something special about getting bundled up in cute sweaters and scarves and boots. Today I have 5 of my favorite fall fashion items that I always look forward to wearing when the temperatures start to dip...
I got this army style jacket from H&M last fall and I have been looking forward to getting to pull it out again this fall. Army jackets are perfect for toughening up a girlier outfit and are a layering must have.
I may or may not have a small addiction to plaid shirts. Okay yes I do. Plaid shirts are great worn alone or layered with basically everything. One of my favorite combos is a graphic tee + a plaid shirt + a denim vest.
BOOTS. I LOVE BOOTS. Like if I was a shoe I would be a boot. Okay maybe I'm getting a little carried away but seriously I love boots. Especially these cute ankle boots that I got from Target. The buckles and the cutout details give them a little extra flair but they are still a perfect basic to pair with cuffed jeans or dresses and tights.
I know what you're thinking, "Morgan florals are so spring." But ya know what? You slap that floral print on a dark background and bam, FALL. This top from PacSun is a perfect example of how florals can be worn even in fall. Pair them with your army jacket and ankle boots and you are good to go.
Jackets like this have been popping up everywhere for the past couple of seasons and I think they are so cool. I love how it looks like you're layering pieces but it's just one jacket and it's perfect for throwing on over any outfit. Also a plus is that you don't get that weird stiff arms situation that sometimes happens with denim jackets because the sleeves are nice and soft and stretchy. Mine has cream sleeves but I like the ones that have black or gray sleeves too.
So there you have it, 5 of my fall fashion favorites. What are your fall fashion must-haves? Let me know in the comments section :)

Who Would Wear That: #10

"Who Would Wear That?" is a post series I started in which I investigate online retailers to find pieces that I think should never be worn... ever. You can check out the other posts here. 
Disclaimer: These posts are for entertainment only. I am not trying to offend anyone. If you have any of these pieces in your closet don't let me stop you from wearing them, this is just my opinion. These items are from NastyGal.com, enjoy!

You know what these pants remind me of? The "faux leather" pants that someone tries to make out of garbage bags every single season for the unconventional materials challenge of Project Runway. The truly unfortunate thing is that no garbage bags were used in the making of these pants and they still look like a garbage bag.
