How to Wear Fall’s Biggest Trends for Under $50

fall trends under $50

Here are six ways to incorporate some of my favorite fall trends into your existing wardrobe. Best of all, everything here is under $50!

Corset dress: ASOS ($45)
Wear this dress with crip white sneakers or dress it up with OTK boots.

Plaid Blazer: Target ($34.99)
Perfect with skinny jeans (or mom jeans – see below) and you’re favorite white t-shirt.

Mom Jeans: American Eagle ($49.95)
Mom jeans have gotten a bad rap in the past, but this flattering pair will give your look an effortless vibe whilst making your legs look miles long. Wear them with sneakers, flats, heels, or sock booties.

Red Statement Earrings: Baublebar ($48)
Red is this season’s color, and there are about a million ways to incorporate it into your wardrobe. One of the easiest is with some on-trend statement earrings (that would happen to look great with all the outfits described above.)

Hoop Earrings: Jules Smith ($35)
Hoops are back, and in a big way. Replace your last-season’s studs with either a classic hoop, or something a little less traditional like these from Jules Smith.

Velvet: H&M ($14.99)
Velvet is EVERYWHERE this season. Wear this sexy little cami with jeans, heels and a leather jacket. Also, if you’re willing to spend a few bucks more than $50, check out both this dress and this jumpsuit – which would be perfect for fall weddings.

Video: My 5-Minute Everyday Makeup Routine

5-minute everyday makeup tutorial

I’m so excited to share my everyday makeup routine with you all today! Whenever I have the oppertunity to get ready with my girlfriends, observing their routines is always fascinating and I always learn something. It’s so fun exchanging tips and helping do each other’s makeup! (Wow, that may be the girliest thing I’ve ever said.)

So I thought it would be fun to invite you to get ready with me… Or at least watch me get ready.

On the days that I actually wear makeup, my “everyday makeup” takes about five to seven minutes – but it lasts me all day. Check out my video and the products below it to see how I do it.

Products and makeup brushes I used:
1. Product: Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer (also sold here)
2. Product: Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer (also sold here) – I wear the color “Fairly Light”
3. Product: Chanel CC Cream – I wear the color “20 Beige”
4. Product: Laura Mercier Loose Setting Power (also sold here) – I wear the “Translucent” color. Brush: Sephora Collection PRO Flawless Powder Brush #40 (on sale!)
5. Product: Smashbox Step-by-Step Contour Kit in the color ‘Light/ Medium’ (also sold here). Brush: Sephora Collection PRO Angled Contour Brush #75. Blending brush: Sephora Collection PRO Contour Kabuki #82 – This is the best brush ever AND it’s on sale! If you buy one thing from my routine, buy this brush!
6. Product: Nars blush in the color ‘Sin’ (also sold here). Brush: Sephora Collection PRO Angled Blush Brush #49
7. Product: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in the color ‘Medium Brown’ (also sold here). Brush: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brush #7B
8. Product: L’Oreal Paris Double-Extend Tubing Mascara
9. Product: Marc Jacobs Liquid Lip Creme in ‘Slow Burn’

Also, please excuse my messy / eclectic / empty-looking living and dining room in the background of this video – we literally just moved into our house a month ago and it has been a process getting it furnished and decorated and we’re clearly nowhere near done.

Birthday Jumpsuit

Striped jumpsuit and gucci belt outfit. (Via Confessions of a Product Junkie blog.)

Today is my 29th birthday and I’m spending it at a dear friend’s wedding celebrating her love (and also just happen to be surrounded by some of my closest friends and favorite people). In other words, it’s a great way to spend the day.

My 20s have been awesome – lots of life milestones and countless incredible memories – but the closer I get to 30 the more I appreciate how my perspective has evolved over the past nine years. There’s a certain confidence and security that comes with getting older and I’m looking forward to the last year of my 20s and what the next decade has in store.
