7 Fall Essentials for Every Girl
Everyone's favorite season is back! The time has come for apple cider, pumpkin patches, and football and we couldn't be more excited. A time for crisp air, colorful leaves, and bonfires. Cozy sweaters make their debut and you can finally break out that new jacket you've been dying to wear. Whether you think the best parts of fall are the classic fall flavors (hello pumpkin everything), or the cool air without humidity, fall bucket lists have become a super popular way to share your fun fall activities. So to help you accomplish your fall bucket list, here's a list of fall essentials for every girl:
1. Cute Thermos
Whether it's hot apple cider, tea, or any kind of pumpkin spice-flavored coffee, keep your seasonal beverage hot while you travel in style with a cute travel mug. Choose from sassy, girl boss, or holiday cheer with one of these from Charming Charlie. Travel mugs are the easiest way to show some personality this fall.
2. Blanket Scarf
Stay warm with a cuddly blanket scarf this fall. Function meets fashion in a variety of colors and patterns that are sure to keep you warm all winter. Wrap around your neck for fun fall layers or drape over your shoulders to keep warm. These are the perfect fall accessory to take you from picking pumpkins to sitting around the bonfire.
There's nothing better than coming home from work and having dinner ready, especially if you are juggling busy schedules around PTA meetings, football practice, or dance lessons. CrockPot meals have come a long way from making basic soups and chili. Try your hand at baked goods, sweets, or stick with savory dishes. Fall is the perfect time to break out the CrockPot and indulge in some warm, cozy, comfort meals without the hassle of dirtying the whole kitchen. Give this recipe a whirl. While family dinners work best in a full size crock pot, the mini crock pots are ideal for hot mulled cider, warm dips, or just dinner for one!
Transitioning from flip-flops to riding boots is a drastic change for any of us. So to help, there are booties. Cute, chic, stylish, and comfy, these are the perfect shoe for days when the weather can't decide if it's still summer or fall. Booties come in all shapes, sizes, and style, guaranteeing that you'll find at least one pair you can't live without. Pair casual taupe booties with your favorite pair of destroyed jeans and a v-neck tee for a classic look. Dress up a pair of heeled booties with a long-sleeved mini dress for a night on the town. Because booties are so versatile, you can wear them with basically anything and still look amazing.
5. Fall Lipstick
Warm, rich lip tones have gained popularity over the years for colder months. Dark berry tones, warm nudes, and rich pigmented brown tones have swept the beauty world, alongside classic deep reds and pinks. Coming back into style are ultra-shiny finishes, so no matter your preference, creamy, matte, moisturizing, or shiny, you're bound to find a new favorite color. I love a moisturizing lip color because my lips get so dry during the cooler months. My favorite shades for fall are E.L.F. Wine Tour and Urban Decay Manic (discontinued), but there are loads of shades that will compliment your skin and make your lips pop!
6. Pie Pan
Satisfy your sweet tooth this fall with baking some pies from scratch! It's the time of year where apples are being harvested in mass quantities and pumpkins make a classic fall pie with seasonal spices and flavors. As we move closer to Thanksgiving, richer flavors like sweet potatoes and caramel make their way into sweet desserts. There's nothing sweeter than having a feminine and chic pie pan.
7. Fall-Scented Candles
Every girl knows that it's the smell of fall that brings the season to life. Scents like "Home Sweet Home," "Macintosh", and "Apple Cider" are some of the best selling candles by Yankee Candle. Making homes feel a little cozier and a little more homey, it's no wonder there is such a huge market for candles that smell like fresh baked pie, crisp apples, and fall florals. For the girls who don't want open flames around kids or if you're confined to a dorm or flat that doesn't allow candles, you're in luck! Try a plug-in air freshener or scented spray.
Go out and grab your favorite essentials before it's too late - fall is only here for a short amount of time before we can start caroling and wrapping presents!
