life lately

...and just like that, it's September. This summer was a complete blur and this blog is proof of it. Totally MIA, folks. Gonna work on that. With the onset of September, I've unpacked scarves, lit my favorite fall candle of all time (more on that in a moment) and started to stock my fall wardrobe. Here are a few things I've selected to kick off the best season of all, Fall. 

I first got a whiff of this baby at Anthropologie a month or so ago and had to have it. The store was sold out at the time, but I was able to scoop it up online! Despite the colors of the glass, its actually pumpkin clove scent. If you buy one Fall candle this season, let it be this one! Not. Kidding. 

These booties are not only ones that will literally match anything in your closet -- from skinny jeans to dresses, but they are also wildly comfortable. The price is a little steep, but for the amount of wear you'll get, it makes it justifiable! 

I also picked these booties up for a more casual option. They are under $100 and will be the perfect throw on all season long. Are you sensing a theme with my attraction to taupe booties? Well, that sounded weird...

So, let me just preface by saying I really deliberated over this item. Real fur to me has always been such a firm "no" in my mind, but for the past three seasons or so, I've really really been drawn to this style vest.  I finally took the plunge and must say its so wonderful on. Its super lightweight and will be perfect for layering, not just this Fall, but many, many, many Fall seasons to come. 

I am a complete convert to FRAME Jeans. I first bought a pair a couple of seasons ago and have never looked back. I love the casual twist on these black jeans with the distressed detail.

The jacket I'm linking here is a very similar version of the leather moto jacket I picked up at a local Raleigh boutique. It was hugely out of my comfort zone but I actually really liked it on! Its super soft and just like the vest, will get a lot of wear for many, many seasons to come! 

I picked this up in a few colors! Its incredibly flattering and priced under $30! Its the perfect throw on top with jeans or with leggings. I love anything with that much versatility and the price was a done deal! 

Any pieces you've found that are your Fall go to's? I'll do another post this week on my Fall beauty favorites!
