I am so excited to share my seasonal favorites via a new series, CURRENTLY Loving. I recently did a poll on Instagram stories {something else I am currently loving} + you all said you were interested in a post like this! Today's post includes my favorites in beauty, fashion, + skin care.

B E A U T Y 

 Colourpop Cosmetics || Notion | LAX | Saigon | Prim

A BOLD LIP
It's no secret that I LOVE a bold lip! A vibrant pout has naturally become my beauty signature all year long. When fall rolls around, my color palette tends to become more muted. A bold lip brightens up each + every one of my looks. My favorite lippie brand is Colourpop Cosmetics {shown above}. I have a pretty extensive collection {I should seriously do an Instagram Story on it}, but these four shades are in the heaviest rotation.

 Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in Coconut via Target || Oval Foundation Brush x TJMaxx {Similar Here}

FOUNDATION STICK + OVAL BRUSH
Since I like to rock a bold lip, I tend to keep the rest of my beauty routine as natural as possible. I would always struggle with finding the perfect foundation + make too much of a mess with a liquid option. After watching more YouTube videos than I'd like to admit, I finally found the dynamic duo I was missing. I was already using Maybelline so I was excited to find they had a foundation stick in my favorite Fit Me! shade, Coconut {355}. YouTube videos also taught me about the oval foundation brush, which is the perfect companion for the foundation stick. 

F A S H I O N 
 Elliott Hat x Cloth + Cabin {S o l d O u t}
WIDE BRIM HAT
This favorite pick should come as no surprise since I have been rocking it all season long {here + here...oh + here}. The wide brim hat is the perfect addition to any fall look + thats coming from a girl who didn't wear hats because of her short hair. I scored this one via Cloth + Cabin in late summer at their Launch Party + I have a feeling it will be a winter favorite too!

 Tassel Earrings x Francescas {Same Pair Here}

TASSEL EARRINGS
At a recent Style Party I hosted, a guest asked me about my favorite fall accessory. I immediately said "these tassel earrings" {of course I was wearing them}. Seriously + surprisingly, I wear these statement earring almost every.single.day. They go with pretty much any look + are actually very lightweight. I am definitely planning on scooping up this same pair in some fresh colors.

 Floral Print Skirt x Forever 21

MOODY FLORALS
Floral is THE trending print this season. We naturally associate floral print with spring, but a moodier version plays well with fall. There's something about feminine edge that I gravitate toward. I styled this skirt last fall for a wedding + featured a floral dress on Instagram last month. 

 {Faux} Leather Pencil Skirt x WhoWhatWear Collection via Target

{FAUX} LEATHER + OLIVE
Edgy details are my jam this time of year + this skirt hits all the right notes. I love to style it with an oversized sweater to play up proportion + contrast. Olive is one of my favorite colors this season. I actually featured this skirt in last year's Color Crush series. 

 Sock Boots c/o Marshalls {Similar Here}

SOCK BOOTS
Boots in general are a fall style staple. Think of sock boots as ankle boots trendy sister. They come up higher + conform to your ankle more than a traditional ankle boot I personally love the dressier vibe of a sock boot + the fact that they pair well with my favorite skinny jeans. Plus, they seem to be more comfortable which is always a plus {especially since we HAVE to wear boots here in Michigan}. Not too bad for $25!

FOX NATURALS
Since becoming a mom, perfecting a skin care routine has been important to me. It could be because self care is so important + essential to #momlife. I was SO excited when I discovered Fox Naturals at a Pop Up shop. {Yes, its a LOCAL skin care line!} Not only do I love that it's a local business with the NICEST owner ever {seriously, Patrick is the best}, but the products are so top notch that my husband and I BOTH use them. The lavender notes in this collection smell A M A Z I N G, are so lightweight, and also have done wonders for my skin. 

There you have it! My eight fall favorites! Did you discover anything new you should be loving? What products are on your radar this season? Sound off in the comments to share your personal favorites with me.
